The immense volume of online content linked to digital libraries has given emergence to the advancement of screening and recommendation systems. A recommendation system is vitally important in both academic institutions and elibraries to assist professors, instructors, students, and researchers in finding appropriate sources of information. Distributed or collaborative screening is the most common method used in current recommendation systems. However, collaborative approaches cannot promote library repositories, including unrated or unpurchased electronic information. Thus, this paper deals with the automated classification and recommendation of a multiclass corpus found in virtual repositories (cloud databases). In various stages, Neuro-Fuzzy (NF) and Support Vector Machine (SVM) techniques are used as the base classifiers for the categorization of the essential subjects (contents). Later, a high-level ensemble learning strategy is utilized to recommend appropriate subjects from the available multiclass corpus. The methods use a CoC (Coherence of Content)-based inference mechanism to extract and filter the critical components before beginning the recommendation process. Experiments demonstrated that a recommended approach based on detailed conceptual descriptions instead of a handful of phrases/words might help academic and research communities to find relevant sources. Observing the results over a period of months shows that the suggested method increases user comfort, proving the system’s acceptability to users in this way. In addition, compared to previous models, the accuracy in categorizing the
requisite subjects is more than 97.16 per cent.
