How can we improve Alma?

Improve publishing to PubMed to give a single coverage statement for all portfolios active for the same title

The Publish to PubMed publishing profile outputs an xml file giving details of ejournal coverage per title. Where we have multiple active portfolios for a title, the output contains a set of "or" queries with the coverage for each portfolio, and these often overlap or duplicate each other. NLM will no longer accept files with these duplications and overlapping coverage statements and instead require a single coverage statement for each ISSN in the file.

Please add to the publishing profile the option to merge the various coverage statements to give a single start and end date per title that reflects the total coverage available for all the active portfolios for each title.

        I'd like to vote, but I have run out.

        I have twice been through the process of manually editing our holdings file in order to make it acceptable to the NLM. It took an unbelievable amount of time.
