  • In the drop down menu next to the search bar, select “list”Enter author name, title, appeal factor, etc… Look for lists created by library staff members. Many will have a small icon next to their user-name (a person with an “L” next to it). You may also find lists from a search of a title. Click on the title’s record. Look to the right hand side of the screen to see if this title appears in any lists. Can be a great way to suggest alternative titles when a book is checked-out (see The Fault in Our Stars by John Green).

    • 3. Learning Objectives • Identify some Bibliocommons features that can enhance your Readers’ Advisory service • Lists • Tagging • Adding similar titles and reviews
    • 4. A Bit about Bibliocommons • Goal: To help public libraries deliver the same kind of rich discovery and community connection experiences online that the library has always delivered in its branches -- all built around the heart of the library: its collections. • Key: A common platform that aggregates the shared expertise, opinions and recommendations of staff and customers alike across all libraries, and integrates those contributions back into the local catalog in intelligent ways.
    • 5. The Wow Factor • Is you!
    • 6. I LOVE lists • Why • They are made by people not algorithms. • They give you access to the R.A. knowledge of libraries across the country and in Canada. • They provide opportunities for engagement, interaction with readers.
    • 7. Finding a List
    • 8. Use a list when . . . • “I’ve read everything by __________________ • Dennis Lehane • Janet Evanovich • James Patterson • Laurell K. Hamilton • Fill in the blank and I was wondering what other authors I could try?
    • 9. Use a list when . . . There are over 200 holds on the book I wanted.  What can I read while I’m waiting for it? 
    • 10. Use a list when . . . This phenomenon occurs: READER ASKS QUESTION… Brain goes empty.
    • 11. Use a list when . . . • You need inspiration for a display
    • 12. Creating a List
    • 13. Use a list when… • You want to get social
    • 14. Use a list when . . . • You want to create a bibliography for a program or community-wide event Tulsa Reads Khaled Hosseini Tulsa Pride 2013 Novel Talk: Gender Wars
    • 15. Your Turn • Find read-alikes: • Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare • Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn • The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman • Search using words that convey moods, tones, and themes. • Start your own list.
    • 16. I’m gonna add some tags • Great for pulling together titles across genres and formats for displays. • Adding tags and similar titles enriches browsing and discovery for customers. • Creates additional tools for providing R.A. • Remember: Tags are only as good as the person who creates them!
