OCLC, the non-profit computer library service and research organisation, has added the newly launched book search engine Novelry to its growing list of WorldCat.org traffic partners in the US.
Based in Omaha, NE, Novelry provides a framework to find connections based on what users care about most. For instance, clicking on the 'Book Cover' icon provides information on when the book was written, what it is about, the subject as well as the genre.
Readers can also add filters to narrow their search as many times as they want with additional search information - including favourite book, topic or award-winning book.
Once the user discovers what they are looking for, they can select the 'Borrow' link feature, which uses WorldCat to connect them to the libraries in their area that hold the book or books.
No registration is needed to use Novelry, which currently is available on the web and tablets. Novelry joins other WorldCat.org traffic partners who provide search options for their users that connect to libraries, including Goodreads, EasyBib, DesignersandBooks and Citavi.
