ProQuest and Patron Point Debut a Reading Recommendation Service for Public Libraries

ProQuest and Patron Point introduced Patron Point Recommends, a new reading recommendation service to help public libraries market their content to increase engagement and usage. It “automatically creates eye-catching branded monthly newsletters for new titles from a library’s catalog enriched with LibraryThing recommendations, as well as and summaries and covers from the Syndetics Unbound service. The newsletters deliver patrons straight to the library catalog to place a hold on the titles or search for other content. They can also automatically promote events and other library news.” Because the newsletters are automatic, they don’t take up staff time to create, and there are flexible design templates that match the library’s other digital communications sent from Patron Point.

Libraries can get Patron Point Recommends as an add-on to their Patron Point subscription.

For more information, read the press release.
