LC Subject Headings and Recommendation

A recent paper Evaluating systematic transactional data enrichment and reuse by James F. Hahn shared by IDEALS shines light on some of the topics we've discussed in relation to patron recommendations, subject mapping, and the potentials (or hinderances) of machine learning. I was happy to see this kind of use of Library of Congress Subject Headings, as imperfect as they are, to resolve some of the subject/genre issues encountered by myself and others. This would come into play most when bridging journal, ebook, and print resource subjects.
