EBSCO Announces NoveList Enhancements, Content Agreements

EBSCO Publishing has announced that its NoveList online fiction readers' advisory service is releasing version 4.1 with the addition of a personalization feature, the ability to create persistent links from a library home page to specific content within NoveList, enhanced searching capability, and browsable lists. NoveList uses over 36,000 subject headings to describe the more than 100,000 fiction titles included in its database. Version 4.1 expands the power and flexibility of the features available for individual readers and libraries.

The company has also announced that EBSCOhost customers who are registered users of The British Library Document Supply Centre can now link directly to ARTWeb, The British Library's online document order form. This is an enhancement to the recent addition of links to The British Library's ArticlesDirect document delivery service, which is designed for nonregistered, occasional users. When activated in EBSCOadmin, links to either service appear with the related citation in the user's search result list. Libraries can also choose links to other services such as Infotrieve, CISTI, and FIZ-AutoDoc.

In a separate agreement, EBSCO notes that in what is a first for libraries in the state of Hawaii, many institutions will have unlimited access through EBSCOhost to 20 of the largest full-text reference databases available. With this project, Hawaiian citizens of all ages can search and access full-text materials from thousands of magazines, journals, newspapers, reference books, biographies, encyclopedias, almanacs, and more.  The 20 EBSCOhost databases made available through this state initiative cover virtually every subject area for children, young adults, adults, and college researchers.

In another partnership, the Illinois Digital Academic Library (IDAL) has selected EBSCO Publishing to provide aggregated journal databases for over 150 public and private Illinois libraries for the next 3 years. Through IDAL, students, faculty, and staff at eligible institutions now have access to several EBSCO databases of academic and business periodicals, consumer health information, and newspapers. Current service from EBSCO will be uninterrupted; however, the package of databases offered will be expanded and modified by this fall. IDAL will continue to assume the entire cost of the EBSCO services for all colleges and universities in Illinois.
