Digital Files for Booksellers
There are two ways that you can get digital content pertaining to Random House, Inc. titles -- via the public view of our SMART Archive called "SMARTpublic" (the Random House site we've created where you can download digital files for a variety of marketing materials), and the RandomHouse.com site (where you can copy selected catalog materials found anywhere on the site). See information below about accessing all digital content from these two locations:

Just about everything on our web sites are available for you to copy and use in promoting Random House titles to your customers. If it's here, it's free, it's easy!

Here are the rules: 1) Any copyright information that accompanies the content on our site must accompany that content wherever you use it (for example, you must use the copyright lines that appear at the end of excerpts); 2) The content cannot be resold--remember, this is just for promoting the sales of the books themselves; and 3) Content cannot be altered.

You should also feel free to use any of our descriptive copy, and, in this case, you can feel free to either copy word-for-word, or to rewrite to add your own personal touch.

The only content we ask you not to copy is the author photos that are on this site. The only author photos authorized for your use are on the SMARTpublic site (see above). You should also make note of the fact that we do link from our web site to numerous other sites which we don't own, control, or influence. So, just be sure that you are in fact still on our site (the address should start with: www.randomhouse.com) before you copy.

Let the clicking begin!
