Information and Environment: IoT-Powered Recommender Systems

01/19/2018 ∙ by Jim Hahn, et al. ∙ 0

Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure within the physical library environment is the basis for an integrative, hybrid approach to digital resource recommenders. The IoT infrastructure provides mobile, dynamic wayfinding support for items in the collection, which includes features for location-based recommendations. The evaluation and analysis herein clarified the nature of users' requests for recommendations based on their location, and describes subject areas of the library for which users request recommendations. The results indicated that users of IoT-based recommendations are interested in a broad distribution of subjects, with a short-head distribution from this collection in American and English Literature. A long-tail finding showed a diversity of topics that are recommended to users in the library book stacks with IoT-powered recommendations.
