Curated collections are hand-picked lists of titles in your catalog, and are typically based around a theme. When you build curated collections, you can apply more specific criteria than you can for automated collections. Unlike automated collections, curated collections need to be manually updated with new titles.


  • Follow current or seasonal trends, like a list of books that will soon be movies, titles about a hot political issue, or holiday-themed titles.
  • Build curated collections for one-time events, author- or series-based collections, or topics that won't be updated frequently.
  • Examples of curated collections include Nobel Prize Winners, Local Authors, Librarian Favorites, and Harry Potter Read-Alikes.
