UC-eLinks Recommender Tool (beta)

For the next two months, the UC Libraries will be testing bX,

an academic library recommender service that points users to relevant scholarly articles on the topics they’re researching via the UC-eLinks window. bX is a service of Ex Libris, UC’s vendor for UC-eLinks (SFX), and is similar to other recommender tools such as Amazon’s “Customers who bought this item also bought…” or Netflix’s preferences feature. bX generates its recommendations based on actual use of link resolver services using anonymized data contributed by academic institutions from all over the world.

This is what is it will look like, but please note that it will not appear every time you access UC-eLinks. Under the “Get Help” section you’ll find a links to give feedback on the bX Beta, and we encourage you to do so.
