Syndetics Unbound, an enrichment service provided by ProQuest, is now available in Explore the British Library.
To find records that have the new features, look for items in your results list that display a book cover:
Click the book cover icon, and a new window opens. You’ll find the new features in the Explore this book tab:
Note, if you’re using a tablet or a smart device, tap the book icon or links instead.
Not all books have the same information available, but typically you might see Summary, About the Author, Tags, Look inside, and Reviews.
One of the features is More by this author. Only titles, by this author, that are in the Library's collection will display. You can use the link on these titles to go straight to the Library’s record for that book.
You may also like is another feature available for some books. Only titles in the Library’s collections, which are similar to the one you searched for, will display.
All Syndetics Unbound data is derived from:
- Bowker, the world’s leading authority for bibliographic and publisher information
- LibraryThing, which provides high-quality, professionally vetted social and recommendations data.
You can still contribute tags and reviews to our catalogue via LibraryThing, which is free to join. Your tags and reviews will become part of an international community rating and reviewing books.
