  • 3. The Complete Solution Is: A Package Containing NoveList Select
  • 4. Something to think about…
  • 5. How many of the holds placed at your library are placed remotely from your online catalog? 40%? 50%? 60%?
  • 6. At Charlotte-Mecklenburg County Public Library in North Carolina 70% of holds are placed remotely. Libraries across the country are seeing remote holds at this level or more!
  • 7. What feature do you think your patrons most want added to the library website or online catalog?
  • 8. At Evansville-Vanderburg Public Library in Indiana, 77% of users wanted recommendations added to the catalog.
  • 9. How It Works
  • 10. How often do you think this happens? A reader hears about a book and goes to the library’s online catalog to see if it’s available.
  • 11. The library owns the book… But all the copies are checked out.
  • 12. The catalog doesn’t give the reader alternatives to the book they want.
  • 13. With NoveList Complete, the catalog is an engaging way for readers to discover other titles they may enjoy while they wait for the newest best-seller.
  • 14. NoveList Complete gives you recommendations for over 5 million titles AND, tells why a reader might find the similar titles appealing.
  • 15. Salt Lake County Public Library reports that 514 times a day someone clicks on one of the NoveList Complete reading recommendations. That translates to a potential 187,000 circulations from books the library already owns.
  • 16. NoveList Complete also connects users to quality NoveList content and newsletters
  • 17. Why wait for readers to come to you? Use e- newsletters to proactively reach your patrons!
  • 18. Here’s an Example
  • 19. Promote the library’s collection with enticing annotations written by the librarians at NoveList and a link to your library catalog
  • 20. Promote the Library’s Events and Programs
