Please give us your opinion on a new Recommender Service!
The Emory Libraries has new a subscription service which taps into the power of the networked scholarly community to generate recommendations based on article usage. The service is activated when the a user clicks the Find It @ Emory button, which appears in SFX-enabled databases and services like Academic Search Complete and Google Scholar.
The service will automatically generate recommendations based on usage statistics. Note that bX is not able to make recommendations when it lacks sufficient usage data for a particular article.
Additional recommendations may be available by clicking the “more” link. The recommender service is presently configured to provide recommendations which may or may not be available at Emory Libraries. Articles not immediately available may be requested through interlibrary loan. In addition, the service may make recommendations for articles available in print only, that is, articles which are not available electronically. Depending on user feedback, we may change these configurations.
We would like to collect feedback from faculty, students, staff, and other library users. Please give us your opinion by clicking on the link found under Web Service, “What do you think of the recommendations?” Clicking the following link will also take you to the feedback form.
