How can we improve Alma?

Incorporation of All Indigenous Syllabics from the Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics Unicode Block

I have a case open with Ex Libris (# 00517082) regarding this. Not all Indigenous syllabics render in Alma, and thus, do not render in Primo either. As an important aspect of Canadian Libraries' commitments to Truth and Reconciliation, and as it is UN's International Year of Indigenous Languages, it would be excellent if Ex Libris could prioritize resolving this issue so that we can allow Indigenous users full discoverability of resources in their own languages.

    As one of my colleagues said, "not displaying a Unicode alphabet is a technical issue that needs urgent correction."

    Definitely should display properly.
