Personalization User Experience Design


One of my areas of focus is leveraging student course data to enhance library web services. My goal is to model the successful recommendation systems employed by Amazon and Netflix, on a smaller scale, within the Library's web sites. As a first step, we have recently begun to provide site personalization based on the subject areas relevant to a student's courses.
