The UC Heads of Public Services (HOPS) gave serious consideration to the purchase of bX Recommender following a three month trial and assessment last spring.  HOPS determined the service to be of some usefulness in increasing discovery of UC’s full text scholarly content.  However, the UC libraries decided not to purchase the service at this time because of our uncertain fiscal situation combined with the perceived usefulness of the product. 

HOPS may reconsider this decision in the future should the feature becomes more robust and effective, and our fiscal situation improve.
