What is bX Recommender?

CSU Library now subscribes to a new service from SFX called bX Recommender.

bX Recommender will suggest alternative or companion scholarly articles when using the SFX feature of a database - similar to the Recommendations for You feature of Amazon.

Can't find the article you're after in full-text? No worries, as bX Recommender will provide you with the most similar results available in CSU Library's subscriptions. This service is available in all databases which use the SFX feature, such as EBSCOhost, Emerald, Informit, Ovid and even the Google Scholar search engine.

Additionally, bX Recommender also allows you to export the recommended articles into your EndNote Library. Simply select the citation, and use the Save Citations drop-down box to select EndNote.

If you've used bX Recommender, why not let us know what you think of it? Simply fill out a Comments and Suggestion form to provide us with valuable feedback.
