    How To Use NoveList to Find a Series How To Use NoveList to Find a Series Presentation Transcript

    • Go to the Tewksbury Public Library website ( and select “Find Articles & Search Databases”
    • Once you are on the Databases page, select “N” for NoveList.
    • Select “NoveList”
    • Enter your 14-digit library card number with no spaces or dashes. Select “Login”.
    • You are now on the NoveList home page. You have four options when searching. “All” will search everything. “Author” will just search the author fields. “Title” will just search the title fields. “Series” will search just the series fields.
    • We are going to focus on doing a series search. Select the “Series” button and type a series’ title into the search box. Select Search. If you made a mistake, you can select “Clear” to start over. If more than one series contains the same search words, they will display in the results list.
    • The Cedar Cove series is the first series in the list, and the one I wanted. If your not sure, you can read the descriptions of the other series to narrow your choices down. Select the link “Cedar Cove series” which will bring you to the next step.
    • This is the Cedar Cove series page. NoveList provides information about the series and lists the book titles below general information.
    • Here is a partial list of the books in the Cedar Cove series. Note they are numbered for you. Selecting a book title in the series will lead you to more information about the book.
    • On the right of the series page, you will also find links to similar books (read-alikes) that might interest you. NoveList usually suggests nine titles and selecting these titles will lead you to more information about each one. It will also lead you to more read-alikes!
    • Select the “More About This Series” tab for additional series information.
    • When you look at a books record, you can check to see if the Library owns the book by selecting “Check the library catalog”. If we do you can place a hold on the book.
    • A new page opens with the results. There are 10 results (different formats and editions). You can place your hold here, or you can leave the page and go back to NoveList.
    • You can find more information about each title by selecting the tabs just above the list of titles. Any articles or further information about the book/author/series will be here.
    • And Finally… 0 You can search for book titles or authors the same way you can search for a series. If you don’t know the full title of the book or author’s name, try selecting the “All” button and entering as much as you do know into the search box. 0 Please feel free to call us at (978)640-4490 ext. 207 if you need additional assistance using NoveList or any of our web resources.
