OneStop software v2.1 now includes integrated support for NoveList Select, the leading source of recommended reading information for patrons. If you've enhanced your OPAC with NoveList Select you already know how effective the product is in guiding your borrowers toward materials that are similar to those they are searching.... Now you can include that same great power in your self checkout stations.
NoveList Select displays recommended titles as items are being checked out. You control the parameters that drive the selections for your users. It works much like your catalog for existing NoveList customers. If you're new to NoveList you might want to read more about it at the Ebsco website.
1. Order a subscription for NoveList Select for Self Checkout (Contact your EnvisionWare sales consultant)
In the past some users received NoveList for self checkout as part of their catalog subscription. However, effective in July of this year, NoveList Select for Self Checkout is an optional subscription. It's available directly from EnvisionWare (not sold by Ebsco). For new NoveList users, your holdings will be uploaded to the NoveList servers. That way patrons checking out items will receive recommendations only for those titles in your collection. Depending upon your ILS this may be an automated process. We'll help you get started and ensure that everything goes smoothly.
2. Use OneStop v2.1 or higher
Starting with the ALA Annual release (June 2016), this new feature was released to all customers under maintenance. OneStop includes all the settings and infrastructure needed to display the recommendations. It alters the page layout to accommodate the new display portlet.
