NoveList RA News: August 2015: Science Fiction

This month, the NoveList RA Newsletter is all about Science Fiction. You can find helpful articles like: Reading Science Fiction for Pleasure and Women in Science Fiction.

But the biggest, FREE resource you are getting here this month is access to Joyce Saricks’ brand new updated article, Getting Up To Speed in Science Fiction.

The “Getting Up To Speed...” articles are some of my favorite resources on the NoveList database. They are a quick and reliable way to make sure that I understand the genres, the key titles, and why fans love theses books. I also regularly point librarians to these articles when they are asking me for help running staff genre studies. These are librarians who have access to NoveList and didn’t know that it contained the guidance they were looking for.

So today, start your week by looking over Joyce’s new updated Getting Up To Speed in Science Fiction; whether you have access to NoveList or not, you can read this one for free.

But, if you do work at a library who pays for access to NoveList, go into the database and take a peek at some of the hundreds of other genre guides that are there, for all age levels, for fiction and nonfiction.
