ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

Session 1.1 B Juried Paper: Visualization of Co-Read Book Data at Goodreads.com: A Potential Readers’ Advisory Tool

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Readers’ Advisory services face a number of challenges, including the ever-increasing number of published titles, and big data available on patron reading habits. We explore a method of combining data from Goodreads, a reading social network, with traditional bibliometric techniques to augment readers’ advisory based on frequently co-read pairs of books. This study also examines the effect of so-called “blockbuster” titles on recommendations.
