Many of our customers use BiblioGraph, which transforms your existing data into linked data formats and publishes it to the library.link network. That makes it easier for search engines like Google to find and show your library’s resources in search results.
If you’re already a customer of BiblioGraph, we have a way to make it even better!
You can choose to further enrich your library’s linked data with BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment. This enrichment uses NoveList’s award information, series information, appeal factors, and other reader metadata — all of it linking directly to your library catalog. The result is that your library is more visible on the open web.
With linked data, libraries now have the power to reach readers, patrons, and potential patrons in ways they never could before.
How Enrichment Works
BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment adds curated and highly structured data (such as appeal factors, Recommended Reads lists, and other reader information) to supercharge your linked data. We take care of all the data setup behind the scenes, so there is very little for you to do to get started.
Once BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment is set up, the additional data and lists make great carousels for your library website or to share with community partners, driving more traffic to your catalog.
BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment is ONLY available to customers who already have subscribed to BiblioGraph.
Use Data to Attract Users

With linked data, libraries have the power to reach readers, patrons, and potential patrons in ways they never could before. If you're wondering where to start, we have a few suggestions.
Share with readers on your website
Using the carousels from BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment, you can share reading lists anywhere on your website. Use them to easily pull titles out of your catalog and highlight your collection as virtual displays. The Recommended Reads lists from BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment make especially good reading lists to share.
Ask library partners to share on their website
Carousels can also be shared with your partners to strengthen outreach and direct traffic to your website. Imagine your local science museum with a carousel of STEAM children's books, local daycares sharing carousels of picture books about starting school, or an animal rescue organization featuring a carousel of animal stories. These are all possible (and easy!) to create and share with BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment.
Recommended Reads lists that are part of BiblioGraph NoveList Enrichment include fun lists such as For Fans of, Best of the Year, Staff Faves — and our book experts have done all the heavy lifting.
These carousels will include only the titles you own, and they update automatically when your collection updates. So, they stay current without you having to do extra work.
Using these is as easy as click, click, embed! Check out some real-world examples below:
