Bowker to Develop Non-Fiction Connection

Mar 02, 2007

Bowker, a provider of bibliographic information, has announced the development of Non-Fiction Connection, a reader's advisory tool for non-fiction titles. The new electronic offering will allow patrons or librarians to find non-fiction titles based on books they have already read. Users will log on to the subscription-only service, enter the title of a book they already know they enjoy, and search for similar books from Bowker's non-fiction database. Using the browse feature, users can locate books within various narrative non-fiction genres, such as true crime, travel, history, food, animals, politics, and biographies. Non-Fiction Connection will be available in June 2007. Bowker is offering discounts of up to 25% for advance orders.
