Great Things Happening at NoveList

Looking for more books like your favorites? Want to find a new author? Can’t remember all the titles in a series? NoveList Plus has the answers! The Buena Park Library provides reading recommendations from NoveList right inside our catalog – just search for a book in the catalog and look for the “From NoveList” area.

Just click the link for NoveList Plus on the Library's website at www.buenaparklibrary.org. Or visit the Buena Park Library and ask a librarian!

You may have already heard the news, but there are great things happening at NoveList:

  • Goodreads Now Available: All of the NoveList databases now include reader ratings and book reviews from Goodreads. This partnership brings the content of Goodreads, the largest social network for readers, into NoveList, the most popular readers’ advisory service among librarians. Readers and librarians now have access to a combination of resources that provide the most complete readers’ advisory service available.
  • Easier to Find Read-alike Content: We have made it easier to find all of the great read-alike content in NoveList. In addition to the NoveList Read-alikes located on the right side of every Title, Author, and Series Detail page, we have added links to Title, Author, and Series Read-alikes at each record in the search results.
  • Easy to find Author Information: Author information is located in one easily accessible location. Just enter the author name in the search box and go to the Author Detail page where you can find author read-alikes, author descriptions, a list of all of the books by that author, and a list of all the series by that author (if applicable). See our Help pages for additional information about author read-alikes in NoveList.
