BookBrowse for Libraries is an affordable, reader-focused, and user-friendly readers' advisory resource featuring more than 20 years of the best in contemporary fiction and nonfiction across a range of genres.
Because there are far too many books published for anybody to read about all of them, let alone read them all, BookBrowse seeks out and recommends only the best and gives readers the information they need to decide which are just right for them.
Exceptional books don't just entertain, they also engage, enlighten and make us step outside of ourselves. BookBrowse seeks out these books across a range of genres, both fiction and nonfiction, and links each book page to the corresponding book in the subscribing library's OPAC so patrons can check availability with one click.
BookBrowse's editorial focus coupled with extensive reading group resources makes it a particularly valuable destination for book club members and those who read to expand their horizons, as well as librarians responsible for collection development and book club organization.
BookBrowse has been twice-recognized -- including a Platinum award -- by the Modern Library Awards as an elite product that can help library management personnel enhance the quality-of-experience for the library user and increase the performance of their library systems.
