My Favorite Features in 15 Minutes: NoveList Plus - Micro Session (15 minutes!)
Date: Thursday, May 10, 2018. 3:00 - 3:15 PM CST

Where do I begin? There are so many features in NoveList Plus, it’s hard to pick just a handful but I’ll do my best! Appeal factors come to mind, for one. Recommended Reading Lists and Book Discussion Guides are another. Does your library support home schooled kids? We’ve got tools that help support curriculum. Finally, we’ll look at some well-received limiters on the Advanced Search page. And we’ve barely scratched the surface!
