Content

Your feedback matters to us. Help us to extend our discovery indexes, KnowledgeBases and Community Zone by telling us what collections and data you’d like to see us add, using the message areas below. You can also support something already posted.
If you are suggesting new content for Discovery that is not yet in the Knowledgebase you do not need to submit two entries (one for Discovery and one for Knowledgebase)
Specifically you can suggest:
• New collections for Discovery (Primo Central and Summon)
• New collections for the Knowledgebase (Alma CZ, SFX KB and 360 KB)
• New authority files to be added to the Community Zone
• Enrichment of Community Zone bibliographic records for certain collections

We would love to be able to respond to every idea that is submitted, but this is not feasible. We are, however, committed to responding to the most popular ideas—those that have received the most points.
For more information please review our FAQ and guidelines. Thank you.

How can we improve Content?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

                • Naxos Music Library

                  Please add the Naxos Music Library, which is a major online source of music recordings which will be of interest to most universities teaching music.

                  See https://www.naxosmusiclibrary.com/

                  It has quite complex metadata because it has CDs containing several pieces of music, each with several tracks, and it has links between different recordings of the same piece of music. As the metadata they have is quite rich, it would be very good to see this exploited in Primo with child/parent linking and records for works as well as recordings. But even just getting the data in at the level of the…

                    • add patent information to Primo Central

                      At its core the Primo Central Index content is all about scientific publications. But since the integration of the ProQuest resources the resource type scope became much wider
                      https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/@api/deki/files/42859/Primo_Central_Index_Resource_Types.pdf
                      Patents applications are published by the national patent offices and they are publicly available. For a science and technology audience it would be very beneficial to search patent publications and literature publications in one index. First choice would be the publications from patent offices. Second best would be data from commercial aggregators.

                                    • Please quit using print records (or old combo print-electronic records) in the CZ to represent serials in electronic format

                                      My understanding is that the CZ records are to represent electronic formats, but most of them seem to be records for the corresponding print title. ISSNs are either wrong (print, where it should be electronic) or the record has both the print and electronic ISSNs in the $a subfield. The OCLC# is usually that for the print record.

                                      All of this causes problems with matching and dedupping when attempting to import and/or order actual print copies.

                                      Please go to electronic only records for the CZ.

                                        Please add portfolios to the LexisNexis Law Schools electronic collection in the Community Zone.

                                        (Note: this collection already exists in the Serials Solutions Knowledgebase, as LexisNexis Advance, with a title count of 15,431. Could the metadata be migrated to Alma, since both are now owned by ProQuest?).
