Can’t get enough of medieval times? Want to find books taking place in the Gilded Age? The NoveList interfaces will now include Time Period headings to help make it easier to find exactly what you’re looking for.
Readers and history buffs will alike will appreciate the new time period headings for the ability to quickly search and find books taking place in their favorite era. Combined with appeal terms, this new addition will help readers more accurately pin down additions to their TBR pile.
For example, you’ll now be able to search coming-of-age stories taking place Between the Wars (1918-1939) or books with a strong sense of place taking place Between the Wars (1918-1939). Have a patron who loves Downton Abbey and wants to read some books during that period? Do a search for Edwardian era (1901-1914).
Time period headings will be visible in NoveList at the search result level, in the book citation area, and in Search for More. This new feature will be available to existing customers of NoveList, NoveList Plus, NoveList K-8, and NoveList K-8 Plus on or after June 14.
