SuosittelijaTM is a book recommendation service developed by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Vantaa City Library. The recommendations are based on a person's earlier loans and other people's interest in similar material. The service aims to activate readers to borrow books that they would not otherwise be aware of.
The recommendation engine uses UPCV-method developed and patented by VTT. The method uses anonymised loan data as input and the system adapts continuously when new loan data is fed in. The systen contains loan data since June 2014. Those HelMet customers who have borrowed items after June 2014 will get personal recommendations, whereas all customers will receive general reading recommendation.
Enter the item name or item barcode to get general recommendations. The recommendations are based on what other people who read that item would most likely read.
