NoveList Plus Incorporates Audiobook Recommendations

NoveList, a division of EBSCO Information Services, added audiobook recommendations to NoveList Plus, its library reading recommendation database. To enhance the recommendations, NoveList created appeal language: a way to describe audiobooks that is used for searches and listen-alike recommendations (e.g., tags for “sound effects” or “read by the author”).

The audiobook recommendations section provides lists of suggested titles and listen-alike titles, as well as audiobook samples and professional reviews from sources such as AudioFile magazine. Title search options include audio length, format, and characteristics (using the appeal language).

“It used to be such a challenge for librarians to answer patron questions about audiobooks. Our customers started asking us if we could help them discover audiobooks the same way that we were doing for print titles, and this release addresses this need,” says Duncan Smith, NoveList’s VP.
