Library Search - recommendations service

We've kept quiet about it, but over the summer we added a new service to Library Search, which recommends articles to you that might be of interest.  You will find them in the 'recommendations' tab of selected articles - see below.

The recommendations are based on what other users of Libary Search who have looked at a particular article have also expressed an interest in.  Its based on a similar idea an online bookseller called 'Amazon' have been using for a while now.

If you can come up with a better word or phrase than 'recommendations' let me know.  It seems to do the job as far as I can see, but I don't even have a real Facebook account, so what do I know?.  'Crowd source' anyone? 'Peerify?' (actually a name of a scary virus, so avoid that!).
