It seems there is a boot camp for just about everything these days. But have you heard of a boot camp for scientists that teaches best practices for writing and managing code? That's just what the organization Software Carpentry (SWC) is about.
A trial of bX Recommender has been added to SFX (the Find it at Stanford links) maintained by the Stanford Libraries. Thanks to Alexis Manheim and Holly Thomasen for their work to customize this tool for SUL.
bX Recommender is a service developed by ExLibris to work with SFX to help researchers discover additional relevant articles. Recommendations are based on the usage of millions of researchers around the globe. Starting with the article the user is looking at, bX Recommender checks what other articles were used together with that article and then displays a list of other relevant articles on the SFX results page.
