Back To School With NoveList!

GALILEO users now have access to NoveList Plus and NoveList K-8 Plus, but what has been added?

NoveList has been the premier readers advisory tool for fiction. This database has tools to help users and librarians match fiction titles and authors to readers’ interests, and to help educators integrate fiction into the curriculum. Now users will find additional tools and content covering nonfiction titles and audiobooks. 

The nonfiction included in NoveList Plus is meant to appeal to readers reading for pleasure and includes biographies, narrative nonfiction, real-life adventure, true crime, and other creative nonfiction; not included are text books and how-to books.
