How We Do Recommendations

Do you know where your recommendations come from? You don’t have to worry about that with NoveList. We have hand-crafted recommendations created by book experts.  We know exactly where our recommendations come from -- and they’re pretty smart people.

Our Process

Our experts evaluate and write recommendations, crafting them by hand. We do as many of those as we possibly can, but we also have a very sophisticated algorithm that considers subjects, genres, and our signature appeal terms.

By Librarians, For Librarians

NoveList is created by librarians, for librarians. We have over 25 librarians on staff, plus others from around the country who contribute their expertise. Read more about our team.

Elements of a Good Recommendation

We believe the main element of a good recommendation is trust -- some recommendations are just better than others. You can trust recommendations from NoveList because we know books and we love libraries. Learn more about our recommendations.
