Book discovery capabilities display in Apollo™ catalog automatically

Austin, Texas – March 1, 2013
Biblionix today announced the integration of Novelist Select content into its Apollo Automation system catalog. Patrons can now seamlessly discover great books similar to their favorites, thus boosting the quality of rich information available to them. NoveList is a division of EBSCO Publishing.

When a patron clicks on a title of interest in their Apollo catalog, the normal cataloging detail is shown. For Novelist Select customers, the additional Novelist rich content is also displayed. Patrons see hot-links to suggested authors and titles.

“With Novelist Select integration into Apollo, our patrons can discover other authors who write in a similar style to their favorite authors and whose books the library already owns. Circulation numbers rise but the best part is that we have assisted our patrons in finding titles they might not have discovered. Novelist Select allows us to ‘climb’ out of their computer screen and say ‘you might also like this author’s books and they’re on the shelf right now'”, said Linda Rees, Director of the Reagan County Library in Big Lake, Texas.

This integration continues the high degree of 3rd party cooperation that Biblionix relentlessly undertakes to help its customers’ precious resources more accessible to patrons.
