How can we improve Summon?

Be able to limit bX Recommendations to fulltext holdings in your library to avoid too many "not available" results

Smaller academic libraries like community colleges will not have a lot of the recommendations suggested by bX Recommender, leading to too many "not available" results for students. For big university libraries who subscribe to 10 times the amount of content, this won't be an issues. For us smaller folks, it would be nice if we could limit bX recommendations to our own fulltext holdings so students would get usable results most or all of the time. bX recommender is otherwise a great tool for even the student who is new to college.

    Alternatively, can the bX recommender clearly indicate which articles are available via your holdings and which aren't? So the user can see which articles they will be able to access immediately and which they might want to find via other means.
