Every month at NoveList we like to take a look at (and share) a list of the top 10 (or 12 or 20) titles searched in library catalogs with NoveList Select all over the world. We do this because it's fun, right? A fun and informative way to look at reading interests. And who doesn't love a top ten list?! 

Over the last few months of protests and more widespread examinations of racial injustice, we saw the most rapid change to the list that we've ever noticed. And you can look at these numbers, too, and see exactly what these changes look like in your community.  

Libraries with NoveList Select can use the Analytics Dashboard to see their NoveList Select usage data from any web-enabled device, anywhere, at any time. This dashboard provides a window into how your library's patrons are viewing and interacting with information in the catalog.  

The Reader Insights page in the dashboard provides a detailed analysis of NoveList Select's views data. Reader Insights will help you see what's popular with your readers. Check the top 10, 25, up to 50 searched for titles in your library's catalog in the previous month. Looking for author or series information? You have access to the top 25 authors and series views generated by your readers. 

If you have questions about set up or your organization's dashboard, email us at novelistselectsupport@ebsco.com
