NoveList Logo

Whether you’re rocking summer reading club, helping patrons find read-alikes, or looking for your own titles to pack for vacation, NoveList Plus provides tools and strategies to make a search really work.

Summer Reading Club Tips
Libraries Rock is this summer’s theme, and we’re seeing it everywhere. If you’re still looking for ideas for book displays and programs, try this: Type < libraries rock > into the search bar on the home page, then click on the Lists & Articles tab. Among the results, you will find articles with 2018 summer reading ideas.

Use Field Codes for Greater Discovery
Sometimes the term to describe what you’re looking for appears in the body of the book review. You can mine review language using the field code RV. Example: RV “beach read” or RV “Read-aloud.” There are other great field codes that can help you find a stand-alone mystery or books by your favorite narrator.

GALILEO Celebrates National Library Week


National Library Week 2018 has an appropriate theme for Georgia’s libraries and GALILEO, who work together to lead schools, campuses, and communities through access to often transformative resources and services. The partnership has been going on since September 1995 when a group of librarians envisioned “One Statewide Library” with core resources and services available to students in Georgia’s schools and academic institutions and to all Georgians through the public libraries. NLW is an appropriate time to celebrate this partnership and to show appreciation for all the library people helping their users get to the resources they need.

The online edition includes over 1400 individually indexed tables that are searchable, browsable, and downloadable into Excel.

Librarians value the Statistical Abstract as both an answer book and a guide to statistical sources. Long-time users of the Statistical Abstract of the United States expect each new edition to carry forward much of the content from prior editions, as well as introduce new data as America continues to evolve. Content is updated monthly.

The 2018 edition introduces 40 new tables covering a variety of topics such as:
