Edelweiss+ Communities

Communities are groups of users with similar interests or functions. Belonging to a Community is a great way to make Edelweiss+ even more customized and useful.

Users within a Community are able to:

  • Share reviews and collections with the Community
  • View reviews and collections from other Community members

 

Public librarians are automatically added to the LibraryReads Community. When you're reviewing a title, you can also easily click to nominate it for LibraryReads! Learn more.

Investments in New Technology

Improvements to Services Architecture

We've implemented more independent services in our application architecture to speed deployment of fixes and new features, take advantage of more efficient cloud-based hosting resources, and promote overall site resiliency.

What Librarians Are SAying

"Edelweiss+ is an invaluable resource, and I appreciate accessing digital galleys before books are published so I can make the most informed decisions for our library."

Eti Berland, Lincolnwood Public Library

"As a librarian, I need to see new books in advance. Edelweiss+ galleys help me decide what to purchase, what to recommend to library patrons, and what will appeal to book club members. Thank you!"

Ellen Getreu, Librarian

"The best collection development tool I have ever used!"

Margaret Donovan, Librarian

"Edelweiss+ is a great tool for finding out what books are coming soon. It helps with collection development, reader's advisory, and selections for book clubs. It is such a fabulous tool for librarians!"

Rachel Reeves, Librarian

"Edelweiss+ is a great collection development tool and aids me in doing readers advisory."

Mary Lorenz, Librarian
