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. Academic e-books from Norwegian publishers via Allvit / Bokbasen

    The Norwegian academic publishers will be making a large selection of their academic books and publications available as e-books in 2019. This is part of a national effort to strengthen the position of Norwegian as a language used in academic and research publications as well as in bachelor- and master-level studies in Norway.

    Bokbasen (https://www.bokbasen.no) is developing an online solution for purchasing and administration of library licenses for these academic e-books from Norwegian publishers, and we would like to have this collection included in Alma ‘s Community Zone.

    Hello all,

    We have been in touch with the provider, Bokbasen, and are currently discussing how best to represent their content in our Delivery systems.
    We are therefore still in preliminary talks, but the provider is receptive.

    Best,
    Rael

    Thank you,

  3. E-Journal target for SFX: JSTOR_SUSTAINABILITY_JOURNALS

    We are proposing to create a new target for the JSTOR-collection "Sustainability Journals" with the name: JSTOR_SUSTAINABILITY_JOURNALS

    The SFX target JSTOR_SUSTAINABILITY_JOURNALS_AND_RESEARCH_REPORTS (4577 portfolios) exists already but cannot be activated when the journals-only collection is available at an institution.
    Therefore its necessary to have an Journals-only target in SFX as well.

    The title list with its 111 titles can be found here:
    https://www.jstor.org/librarians/products/thematic-collections/sustainability/

  4. F-Mesh in MARC21

    F-Mesh is a bilingual French/English version of the Medical Subject Headings (Mesh).
    We are a French speaking Library network using MARC21. We were very happy to hear that Alma now includes F-Mesh as a subject headings vocabulary. However, as it is available only in UNIMARC, we cannot use it. If you are in the same situation, then don’t hesitate to vote for this Idea!

    The Title list can be found here: https://www.jstor.org/librarians/products/thematic-collections/lives-of-literature/#content

  18. Elsevier ELibrary (elsevierelibrary.de)

    Target/Collection: Elsevier ELibrary

    Provider: ELSEVIER

    URL: https://institut.elsevierelibrary.de/

    title list: https://institut.elsevierelibrary.de/catalog/show/all

    content: (mostly) German-speaking textbooks for medicine studies (pre-clinical & clinical, post-graduate), veterinary medicine and nursing

    Instead of using the default target "miscellaneous_ebooks", we think it appropriate to create a dedicated target for this collection.

    The list of D-A-CH clients using the Elsevier eLibrary has become quite long: https://institut.elsevierelibrary.de/staticcms/referenzen

  20. University of Michigan Press Ebooks

    The University of Michigan Press recently launched ebook collections on the new Fulcrum platform.
