EEXCESS Wordpress Plugin

The Wordpress plugin from EEXCESS provides users with contextual content from cultural and scientific databases to insert into their blog posts

The EEXCESS prototype tools serve as recommendation tools, delivering personally tailored recommendations from cultural and scientific databases without having to explicitly search for this content, integrated into web browsers and content management systems. All code is available openly licensed and via GitHub.

The Wordpress Plugin is easily installed by anyone with a self-hosted version of Wordpress (as opposed to blogs). Whilst editing posts, users can select text and then fetch recommendadtions from collections including Europeana, EconBiz (economic literature), Mendeley (scientific papers), and KIM BL (regional cultural content, Baselland, Switzerland). These are then easily inserted into the post, including images and links.
