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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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.

      • Classiques Sciences Sociales Free

        Classiques Sciences Sociales Free collection is composed of more than 4,300 portfolios. Most of the records are very poor: only the title, one author, and the eISBN. The publication date in 008/7-10 is usually incorrect.
        Full Marc records exist for these items and are available under certain conditions (for libraries) at http://classiques.uqac.ca/inter/telechargement_notices.php?lang=en
        Note also that Les Classiques des sciences sociales actually contain more than 6,500 free works http://classiques.uqac.ca . A general update of this collection would be welcome.

          • LexisNexis Law Schools

            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?).

            • Sherpa RoMEO indicator embedding

              Embed a Sherpa RoMEO colour indicator and a mouse-over floating tip reading info from RoMEO about a journal's copyright and self-archiving policy.

              Doing this for the search results on EJP could be a great favor.

              Sherpo RoMEO pubs data under CC BY-NC-ND license which seems to ban EL from re-using them? Or EL may talk to them.
