  • eSequels.com
    Like the book Sequels, first published by ALA in 1982, this database aims to include the best, most enduring, and most popular novels in series that might appeal to today's adult readers. eSequels lists the most popular series so you can discover a new author or rediscover an enjoyable series of years past. It indexes character, location and subject as well as author and title so you can identify a series that you may recall only vaguely, and gives brief annotations that describe each title without "giving away" any surprise endings. eSequels indexes U.S. and British series novels and European series that have been translated into English. Note:You will need to enter your library card number on the eSequels.com website to use the service.
