Confessions of a first-time ALA attendee
I’ve been working in libraries for almost a decade but have never been able to go to the annual ALA conference due to family, school, or work obligations. My luck changed this year after joining NoveList this past July. It’s my job to talk with libraries, so it was my job to go to ALA!

Reading the right book at the right time
It’s been one year since the NoveList baton was passed along to the next generation of readers’ advisory experts. Lucky for us, however, Duncan Smith continues to offer us inspiration on the connection between books and our daily lives. In this month’s issue of Booklist Online, Duncan shares a personal conversation on this very topic and reminds of us his own devotion to books and readers.

Come see us at ALA 2019!
Librarians, including librarians from NoveList, are converging on Washington D.C. for the ALA Annual Conference. It’s been almost ten years since ALA was in D.C. and there’s a ton of new stuff to see (outside of the conference programming). We hope that you’ll also take the time to stop by the EBSCO Booth #2533 in the Exhibit Hall and get some insider information on what’s new and forthcoming from NoveList.
