Let Me Count the Ways

Every once in awhile I am reminded of how much I love NoveList, and then I feel compelled to tell all of you.  I had a middle schooler in yesterday who had to read books above a certain lexile level.  For those of you unfamiliar with lexiles it is an educational tool used to match readers with books for their reading level.  It can be difficult to find lexile levels, but not on NoveList of course.  We were able to use the advanced search in NoveList and input the required lexile, the student's age range, and the type of book that interested her, and voila--an appropriate list of books.  NoveList is connected to our Online Card Catalog, and with a click of a button we can tell if we own the book, and if it is checked in.  Anyone can use NoveList from inside the Library, and Dover Public Library cardholders can use it from home by linking to EbscoHost.  Did I mention that I love NoveList!
