Let’s talk about Readers’ Advisory tools! The following are the urls and brief summaries to the tools I presented on during the Ignite Talks (April 23rd). I’ve also added a few extra that we didn’t have a chance to go over and I hope that it inspires you to contribute a few that you or your staff uses.
1. Fiction_L (Listserv provided by Morton Grove Public Library)
Recommendation tool for music, movies, tv shows, books, authors, and games
It was re-launched in March 2015 so it’s not completely accurate but it is growing quickly with the help of its members (which can be you). As a member you can report errors to help grow Tastekid’s recommendations and report “mistakes” to help the Tastekid staff create more accurate recommendations.
All I can think of ti add is if you can't find the series you're looking for at Fantastic Fiction, or just want a second opinion, try Kent District Library's "What's Next" database: http://ww2.kdl.org/libcat/whatsnext.asp
