Description: 

The greatest challenge for discovery systems is providing users with the most relevant search results out of the immense landscape of content. Similar to human interaction between two parties, where people adjust in tone, language, and subject matter, discovery systems need to “understand” the user’s context as well as the materials’ scholarly value. The session will describe Ex Libris Primo’s approach to relevance ranking. In addition to employing traditional information-retrieval methods that have been adapted to scholarly data, ScholarRank takes into account the intrinsic academic value of materials along with information about the user and the user’s research needs.
