NoveList Select™ Expands ILS Partnerships to Include Evergreen
~ New Partnership Enables Libraries to Reach More Readers ~

IPSWICH, Mass. — February 21, 2013 — NoveList®, a division of EBSCO Publishing is announcing a new ILS integration with NoveList Select™, its catalog enrichment resource. NoveList Select is now integrated into the Evergreen ILS – enabling more libraries to make their library catalog a robust tool full of rich information for the readers.

At a recent Evergreen developer ‘Hackfest’ event sponsored by Equinox Software, Inc., Equinox developers created code for a new feature in the master code of Evergreen which makes it easy to turn NoveList Select on and requires no additional development time for libraries. This new feature enables mutual customers to enhance their catalog so it becomes a tool for readers to discover great books. Vice President of NoveList, Duncan Smith says this implementation with Evergreen is part of a continuing effort to improve the accessibility of NoveList’s reader focused content. “We are committed to working with as many partners as necessary to make NoveList Select a successful tool for all libraries. This collaboration is another step to help libraries transform their catalogs into a place where readers can discover great books.”

NoveList Select is the catalog enrichment component of NoveList readers’ advisory resources. This component pulls NoveList content into a library’s catalog. NoveList Select makes reading recommendations, series information, book discussion guides, Goodreads ratings and reviews, library newsletters and events available to library patrons from within the catalog record.

NoveList Select works with many major vendors and systems to ensure the content is seamlessly integrated into a library’s catalog. A list of ILS systems that NoveList Select is already integrated with is available at: http://www.ebscohost.com/novelist/our-products/novelist-select-ils.
