Recommender Systems for Meta Library Catalogs

Participate!

Simplify your life by using the library recommender services we provide in cooperation with the University Library. That way, you can save valuable time by faster finding the right books on any subject in your studies and work. At the same time you can help other users -- and therefore yourself too -- to rout out the suitable literature for a specific problem and a certain standard of knowledge!

If you have any questions or comments about these services, please contact .

Behavior-Based Recommender Service

Why should I use it?

With the aid of the Behavior-Based Recommender Service you can find documents (books, journals, etc.) that are often used together. If you like a certain book you might find more interesting titles that way.

How can I try it myself?

You can use the search screen of the University Catalog, the Karlsruhe Union Catalog or the Karlsruhe Virtual Catalog (KVK) to find an interesting book. If recommendations for your selected title are available you will see a link to the recommendation page on the right hand side.

On the recommendations page you will find a list of titles you might find interesting too.

What is the reason that there are only so few recommendations for my title?

That there are only few or seldom no recommendations for a certain book does not mean that it is worthless or that nobody wants to read it, it has just been rarely used. Books that are often used have more recommendations. However, you can use the Notofication Service to be informed as soon as there are more recommendations for your title.
