Shortcuts to a Good Book: Using the Library’s Online Resources
Tuesday, April 25
Instructor: Mohammed Esslami, MLIS, Branch Manager, George Mason Regional Library
Get acquainted with NoveList Plus, one of the library’s online reader’s advisory databases. Whether you’re planning the next selection for your book club to read, or
just looking for a good book for yourself, NoveList Plus is an excellent resource. Using NoveList Plus, you can search for books and authors similar to those you already enjoy.
Many titles have links to reviews, table of contents for anthologies, and/or first chapters. There are also author biographies and recommended reading lists. Mobile
devices (e.g., iPad, iPhone or laptop) are not needed for this class, but you are welcome to bring them if you would like.
