Great news! Now, when you search iBistro, the CAFE catalog, for a book or author, search results will include information on read-alike books and authors, as well as series information if applicable. This service is provided by NoveList Select.
No more digging through Google to find author websites or, what's even more annoying, dealing with glitzy author sites that are nigh unto impossible to navigate when you just want to know what book is next in the series...
Check out the screen shot below. This sample search brings up the availability of the book in question at our library, and also suggests other books and authors you might like which share characteristics with the searched-for book. Note that other books in the series are clearly listed as well. Fabulous!
We're very excited about the possibilities and are expecting this to be a much-used tool for librarians and patrons alike. Stop in and ask for a quick demo.
