New article recommender service free trial

Information Services have implemented a free trial of a new article recommender service ‘bX Recommender’. The recommender service is similar to Amazon’s “customers who purchased this also purchased…” except it is for journal article recommendations. It makes recommendations based on real usage data gathered internationally and points to relevant scholarly articles. More information. If you would like to provide feedback on this service please email

Password security when using e-journals or e-books

Please ensure that you do not use your Aberystwyth University (email) login and password on the websites of e-journals, e-books and other AU electronic resources. You should only use these on a website or dialogue box that is in the domain e.g. Instructions for accessing e-journals etc off-campus are given in the ‘Authentication’ note in E-journals @ Aber or via the ‘i’ button in eLibrary.

Please access these via Voyager or the ElecInfo gateway. For further help, email
