New functionality in the sfx e-journals database

The Library is currently trialling the bX software. bX extends the functionality within the SFX e-journals database, adding an "Amazon-like" recommendation service. bX will recommend alternative journal articles to the currently viewed reference, based upon what other users have looked at whilst viewing the same article.

You can see an example of bX in action here

The bX recommendations will help researchers find relevant articles in their specified area, as well as providing links to similar articles which the Library can provide access to if we do not subscribe to the full-text of the particular journal article you are looking for.

All feedback is welcome. Please use the "Problems? Comments? bx feedback?" link on the SFX e-journals results page.
