The general idea is to recommend appropriate literature and media based on a bibliographic entry. The metadata of an IUCr document is used to find related wikipedia articles. We then extract bibliographical references from Wikipedia. The extracted citations are used to query external datasets, as e.g. British National Library, Cambridge University Library etc.

The retrieved results can be ranked by matching their metadata with the original IUCr document. This should help, either for shortening the process of interdisciplinary information research as well as for young researchers that may not be aware of free information sources available in their field.

Please read on here for a workflow drawing and some initial feasibility tests.
