Logged-On Library: NoveList

While the Rochelle Park Library is closed for our remodel, we will be sharing some tips and tricks to accessing the digital services available to you thanks to your BCCLS library card.

To get started with NoveList, a site designed to help you find new books to read, you’ll want to go to the Rochelle Park Library website, open the “Services” tab, and select “Research Assistance.”

The “Research Assistance” page is where you can find any of the online resources made available to you through JerseyClicks, a service offered by the New Jersey State Library to help library patrons access a variety of online materials.

To open NoveList, scroll down and click on the NoveList link in the list of JerseyClicks resources.

In order to log back in and access your NoveList suggestions later, you’ll need to create a username and password. You’ll want to select the “Sign In” tab in the top right corner.

To create your account, you should select the “Create one now” link at the bottom of the login page. Once you’ve entered your information, you’ll be led back to the login page to enter your information.

Note: If you’ve already created an EBSCO eBooks login, you can use that information to sign in here. NoveList is also run by EBSCOhost.

Once you’ve signed in, you can start looking for reviews and recommendations.

You can search by genre, title, and various other details.

If you have specific questions, you can learn more by selecting the “Learn how to use NoveList” tab from the “How Do I?” drop down menu on the top left.

To search by genre, you’ll want to select the specific genre from the menu on the left side.

Once you find a book you’re interested in, you can open the title to view reviews, summaries, and other details about the book.

You can also base a search on the book you’re viewing using the parameters from the “Search for More” box at the bottom of the page, or you can open “read-alike” books that are very similar to the title you’re viewing.

If you see items you like in your search, you can select the blue folder to the right of the entry to add the item to your “Folder.”

You can review these items anytime by selecting the “Folder” icon in the top right corner.
