New Article Recommender Service

The Library has recently implemented a trial of bX, Ex Libris’ scholarly recommender service.

bX is now embedded with our SFX service to provide enhanced opportunities for academic discovery for our users.

Users of SFX will now see recommended articles where possible, along with links to fulltext if available - see the screenshot below for more details.
It works by analysing global usage of SFX for all Ex Libris customers, and manipulates this information to show our users other articles the global scholarly community found relevant – similar to Amazon’s ‘Other Customers Also Bought ...‘ feature.
