Customer Testimonials

"After moving the majority of the Library's physical collection to an off-site storage facility, we wanted to fill the void of browsing the physical stacks with a virtual browsing solution. Syndetics Unbound does just that by providing our users a serendipitous stack browsing experience within our discovery tool. In addition to the "browse shelf" feature, Syndetics Unbound also offers "you may also like" recommendations, reviews and tagging resulting in an engaging, modern and convenient browsing experience."

"Recommendations on similar books are really important if I’m browsing for a novel or doing research on books in a specific topic."

"I think the Browse Shelf option is very valuable and makes the experience similar to being in the library. I normally try skimming to related books a lot so this I guess will be a valuable experience to other graduate and undergraduate students as well."
