Searching the Catalog for Something to Read? Use the Novelist Widget in the Catalog to Find Read-a-likes!

Do you find yourself searching the library catalog for something to read but don't know what pick? A strategy you can use is to search the catalog for something you have already enjoyably read and use the widget titled Explore Further on the right side of the screen to find similar titles. Under Explore Further is the subtitle Recommendations. Under that is a couple of clickable read-a-likes. To see more you can either click on Show more which will reveal three more titles or click on the More from Novelist link to an expanded Novelist widget which will display similar titles, similar authors, appeal factor links to other titles, etc. By doing this you can harness the recommendations provided by Novelist straight from our library catalog!
