Serving together: Reflections on ALA, 2018
ALA in New Orleans was packed full of good food, inspiring speakers (Michelle Obama!), and (of course) librarians. We appreciate all the librarians who took the time to stop by the EBSCO booth and say hi, pass on your feedback, and let us know what you think of our upgrade to NoveList Select. That you take the time to chat with us is part of what makes the conference great for those of us working the booth.

After many discussions and a lot of work, we have begun adding diversity appeal to adult titles, too!
