Minneapolis – June 28th, 2023: Bibliotheca and NoveList®, a division of EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO), are proud to announce a new exclusive agreement that makes the expertly curated recommendations from NoveList available at checkout only on Bibliotheca’s self-service solutions.
For nearly 30 years, libraries have trusted NoveList as their go-to source for expert book suggestions for every kind of reader. NoveList’s book professionals meticulously catalog and tag titles, resulting in highly relevant search results and recommendations not just from the current bestseller list or loosely tied suggestions.
This partnership extends the recommendation expertise of NoveList staff into the Bibliotheca self-service experience, making it easier than ever for library patrons to find their next perfect read right at the point of need – checkout. This integration will allow book recommendations to be displayed based on what is being checked out. Patrons can place recommendations on hold or print or email the list to use later.
“At Bibliotheca, we are constantly striving to help libraries improve service, meet the needs of their patrons and remain relevant to their communities,” says Joe Grillo, Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited about this exclusive partnership with NoveList and the opportunity it presents to help more libraries drive circulation and connect readers with books perfectly matched to their interests.”
Bibliotheca is now the only library solutions provider to offer NoveList’s read-alike recommendations at checkout. NoveList’s recommendations are available on any Bibliotheca solution running quickConnect software, including the selfCheck and remoteLocker self-service solutions, as long as the customer has an active subscription to NoveList Select.
“We are excited to partner exclusively with Bibliotheca to provide our expertly curated recommendations in their self-check kiosks through NoveList Select,” said Danielle Borasky, Vice President of NoveList. “Together, we can help readers find something more of what they love to read.”
For nearly 30 years, libraries have trusted NoveList as their go-to source for expert book suggestions for every kind of reader. NoveList continues to develop innovative solutions for connecting readers, books, and libraries, and to empower libraries to engage and inspire their communities. As a division of EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO), NoveList specializes in readers’ advisory tools for libraries that include book discovery, curated recommendations, collection development, and community engagement.
