NoveList

NoveList is a reader’s advisory tool powered by EBSCO. It is a great tool for helping patrons within the library to find books based on a set of appeal terms. You can start by searching for a book the patron enjoyed and a list of appeal terms will come up. A list of book readalikes will be available and a list of author readalikes. If the book is a part of a series, you can often find a list of series readalikes. Recently, NoveList also added a component where you can see how a title is reviewed on goodreads.com and how popular it is.

This tool is also great for help with book talks, coming up with lists, book discussion guides, and more. I like that it is easy to navigate and has many dimensions that are helpful both to librarians and to readers themselves.
