EBSCO Publishing has announced the release of NextReads version 2.0. This enhanced version of the email newsletter service delivers a more intuitive user experience while also offering a more extensive array of customization options to library administrators, according to the announcement.
New features of NextReads 2.0 include the following:
* Easier navigation via an updated console interface
* Enhanced Advanced lists that provide more information (e.g., theme labels), offer the option to search a library's catalog by Author/Title or ISBN, and provide the ability to mark titles for deletion
* A wide variety of new, redesigned templates to choose from
* A new online editor feature that makes it easier to edit or create custom newsletters
Simplified linking makes it easy for library staff to link from newsletters to other library resources, or to additional content such as Book Discussion Guides or Author Read-Alikes (both available to existing NoveList customers)—without editing HTML
NextReads is a subscription-based email readers' advisory and library marketing service that provides libraries with more than 20 subject and genre-specific newsletters targeting the areas of greatest customer demand and interest. Newsletters contain recently-released titles as well as older titles that readers might have missed, all linked to the library's catalog. Available newsletters include fiction (Fantasy, Mystery, Romance, Science Fiction, etc.), non-fiction (Armchair Travel, Biography and Memoir, Spirituality & Religion, etc.), and three newsletters for young readers (Picture Books, Kids' Books, and Young Adult Books).
