RAILS Webinar: NoveList Select

Join Duncan Smith, Reader’s Advisory expert and NoveList creator for an engaging session about NoveList Select and the potential for catalog integration specifically for RAILS LLSAP member libraries. This event is also open to other interested RAILS members.

Wonder what impact of NoveList Select is? In the age of reserves and remote patrons what can we do to make our catalogs robust tools full of rich information for readers? How do we reach out to the patron who is HOLD #817 and provide them with additional options? How do we make searching the catalog more like a Garden of Forking Paths – rather than a dead end? (And how do we keep patrons on our site rather than forcing them to leave and go elsewhere for information they want and need?)

NoveList Select is a catalog enrichment service that incorporates expert reading recommendations for titles, series, and authors, as well as reader ratings and reviews. Additional optional enhancements include everything from professional reviews to author bios to summaries.
