LibraryThing for Libraries Boosts Discovery

LibraryThing for Libraries (LTFL), distributed by ProQuest, enhanced its book recommendations feature to add a broader selection of “if you like this, then read that” elements for library patrons looking for new reading material. Books in a library’s holdings will now offer recommendations for titles by the same author, similar authors and genres, and other specifications. Current LTFL catalog enhancement package subscribers will receive this upgrade automatically for free.

In other news, ProQuest announced the digitization of the papers from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) to augment its U.S. civil rights movement coverage. The digitized content includes organizational records and leaders’ personal papers and is now available as part of ProQuest History Vault’s The Black Freedom Struggle in the 20th Century collection.
