Frequent users of McGill’s online article subscriptions have probably noticed a feature in the “Find at McGill” window which lists articles related to the original item that they have selected to view.

The recommended citations can be downloaded to citation management programs like EndNote. You can also click on the Find It link for a given item to find out if McGill has access to the full text online.

Just like Amazon and other retailers, this service, called bX recommender, suggests similar items based on usage logs from McGill and other libraries that use the same product to link across journal subscriptions. More than 5 million historical usage log entries have been collected back to April 2007). The publishing/harvesting of local data is now processed on a ongoing basis.
