In my days working at the Main Library in beautiful downtown Durham, N.C., the majority of my
adult readers' advisory questions came from avid readers looking for African American popular fiction.
I remember how difficult it could be to find reliable information and recommendations about the books and authors my customers loved. Hit books tended to be one-offs, constantly checked out, and barely reviewed in mainstream library sources.
Fortunately, NoveList has lots of features and content that I wish I had known about back then. For instance, here's a set of relevant genre terms used in NoveList, a quick pathway to our brand-new African American popular fiction browse, and as a bonus, two printable flyers that will also be available in LibraryAware.
