25,000 Authors at Your Fingertips - NoveList

"Is your favourite author a tea-drinker?"
NoveList has added information about 25,000 authors, including nationality* (where an author has lived, or lives now), author cultural identity** (identity with, or membership in, a particular ethnic, national, or cultural group), author gender, and links to author websites. (Are they a dog person or a cat person? Did they go to college, and where did they go? Do they have a blog? Are they a tea-drinker or a coffee-drinker?) How do you find all of this information? In an author's record in NoveList, you'll see several tabs -- choose the tab called "More about this Author." You'll see the Author Characteristics information near the top, followed by website links. Some authors will also have notes providing even more information about them.

Example: Alice Munro
