BookBrowse For Libraries

About BookBrowse

MLA Gold Award SiteBookBrowse - winner of Gold in the 2015 Modern Library Awards - is an affordable, reader-focused, and user-friendly readers' advisory resource and online magazine suited for librarians and patrons alike. Unlike the many databases that attempt to list all books regardless of quality, BookBrowse carefully sifts through thousands of books - saving librarians and patrons valuable time - and recommends only the best.

Exceptional books don't just entertain, they also engage and enlighten; they wrap us in their world and make us step outside of ourselves. BookBrowse seeks out these books across a range of genres, both fiction and nonfiction, and links each book page to the corresponding book in the library's OPAC for one-click searching.

While some of BookBrowse's content is available for free, full access is only for subscribers - both individuals and patrons of subscribing libraries. Library subscriptions start at $200/year and include 24-7 remote access so patrons can log in anywhere, any time.
