I have been looking at the Alma Road map for 2018/19 and note the exciting BIBFRAME and Linked Data initiatives.
Fitting in nicely would be the facility to search VIAF from within Alma.
This would make it easier to check what already exists in authority files internationally and identify a suitable entry if we have to add identifying information for disambiguation purposes.93 votes
More and more government agencies require researchers/scientists to have ORCID iD when they apply for government sponsored research. But ORCID iD is for real world object. Please use $1 real world object for ORCID iD for Alma search indexes for MARC21 100, 600, 700 fields. The current Alma search indexes incorrectly support $0 for ORCID iD in MARC21 100, 600, and 700. This error needs to be corrected.46 votes
The subfield c in MARC 348 is new and Alma is not indexing it yet:
348-Sub-field "c" is not listed in profile for field 348
Sub-field "d" is not listed in profile for field 348
Example: 348 ǂc staff notation ǂd 1007 ǂ2 rdafmn
This replaced the 546 ǂb Staff notation.
Since this subfield is not indexed yet it is not displaying in Display in Discovery. Are there plans to index these subfields in the near future?
When viewing records in ALMA, having the option in the drop-down menu to view within PRIMO would make it easier eto establish the link between them and also make checking it more efficient.2 votes
