Syndetics Unbound Content Now Included in Patron Point Recommends

ProQuest has reached an agreement with Patron Point to include Syndetics Unbound elements in their newsletter service.

Recommends, is a reading recommendation service that helps libraries market content to their patrons and increase engagement and usage of their collection.

Recommends helps users create eye-catching, branded monthly newsletters for new titles from the library’s catalog enriched with recommendations, summaries, and covers from Syndetics Unbound. The newsletters connect patrons straight to the library catalog to place a hold on the titles or search for other content. They can also automatically promote events and other library news.

The newsletters are built and sent automatically – no staff time required – and based on flexible design templates. Customers who subscribe to both Recommends and Syndetics Unbound will additionally benefit from:

  • Enriched corresponding information between the library’s newsletter content and what’s available in the catalog.
  • The ability to enrich newsletters with the same Book Display Widgets that are displayed using the Unbound content on the library’s website.
  • Recommendations that are 100% in the library catalog.
  • Continuity of images across the catalog and Recommends.

At a time when it’s more crucial than ever to stay connected with patrons, Recommends provides a simple and easy way to do so. Schedule a demo and learn more about what Recommends can do for your library.
