New reading recommendations in the WCCLS catalog January 6

Need a good reading recommendation? No problem!

Beginning January 6, 2015, check out our new and improved book recommendations directly in the WCCLS catalog:

This new addition displays recommended books that are similar to the title you're currently viewing. The catalog will only recommend titles that are owned by WCCLS member libraries, so you know you’ll be able to check them out.

If the book you’re looking at is part of a series, the catalog will now show you the other books in the series, and in what order they come. Book reviews and ratings are included, and provided by the popular social reading site Goodreads. This rating and review functionality has replaced our previous option.

Give it a try! Reviews and ratings are available in both the full catalog as well as our mobile-friendly catalog. Just look for 'Recommended for You' inside any of your search results starting January 6.
