The 2018 Choice Outstanding Academic Titles have been announced. We looked back to see which subjects and titles were the most popular titles purchased through GOBI® Library Solutions from EBSCO.
The Choice Outstanding Academic Titles (OAT) list, published each January, reflects the best in scholarly titles reviewed each year by Choice. The new 2018 Choice Outstanding Academic Titles list prompted us to look back at the most popular subjects and titles based on GOBI Library Solutions sales data.
Here’s a look at the Choice OAT by-the-numbers.
What were the top three subjects based on quantity sold?
Social Sciences and Science made it into the top three subjects in 2016 and 2017, with Social Sciences topping the subject list two years in a row.
What were the top five titles based on quantity sold?
In 2016, the top five titles ranged in subjects from biology and earth sciences, to culture in the United States. In 2017, the top five titles seemed to be pulled from the headlines, covering timely news topics.
