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.

  4. Add OA flag to Community Zone Open Access ebook collections where they are missing

    Some Alma CZ ebook e-collections do not include a MARC 506 field that would add the OA flag to Primo search results. This means that these titles are not included in the Open Access facet under Availability - even though the names of the e-collections state that they are open access.

    Eg:

    Project Euclid Open Access Monographs
    Bloomsbury Open Access
    Brillonline Open Access Books
    International Monetary Fund eLibrary Open Access
    JSTOR Books Open Access
    Project Muse Open Access Books
    Smithsonian Research Online - Open Access (Smithsonian)
    Taylor & Francis eBooks Open Access
    Walter De Gruyter: Open Access eBooks

    Please consider…

  8. Add Learning Express to Discovery, KB and Alma Community Zone

    There is currently no discovery for Learning Express. This database is used by all libraries in Texas and should be added to the Community Zone and PCI for indexing and discovery.

  9. Open Textbook Catalog: Please use direct feed of MARC records from https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery

    In the CZ there is an existing collection (613790000000001601) for the Open Textbook Catalog.

    Compared to the MARC records available at https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery the CZ collection has fewer titles (651 vs 766 as of 07/13/2020).

    Also the CZ bibliographic records are extremely brief and usually have nothing more than a title in the 245 field. The bib records from open.umn.edu are fuller with author, title, publisher, content and summary notes and subject headings.

    This request is to ask Exlibris to use the publicly available MARC bib records from the open.umn.edu website to enhance the existing CZ collection.

    Thank you.

  10. 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!

  11. Springer Nature Open Access Community Zone Electronic Collection

    This is a request to add a single free/open access collection for all Springer Nature free/open access journals. Currently there are 4 community zone collections in Alma with many overlaps:

    SpringerOpen Free - (CKB)613170000000000044

    BioMed Central open Access - (CKB)611000000000000500

    Bacon Springer Nature Global Open Access - (CKB)613780000000000900
    Springer Nature Oa Journals - (CKB)614910000000000075

    We’d like the addition of one single consolidated collection because having the above 4 collections is unnecessarily confusing for students and staff as they currently encounter so many electronic collections for the same journal/article even when different community zone electronic collection links in Primo end up…

  12. NERS 2021 - Pressbooks Directory

    The Pressbooks Directory (https://pressbooks.directory/) indexes over 2000 open access books created by educational institutions. As many of these are not indexed separately, it would be great if the contents of the directory could be included in the Alma Community Zone and/or the Central Discovery Index.

  16. Encyclopaedia Universalis, with availability type "Link resolver"

    Encyclopaedia Universalis collection already exists in PCI, but the availability type is "Link in Record". It makes it impossible for patrons to access the fulltext.
    The availability should be "Link resolver", so the library can manage its proxy settings in the link resolver.

  19. Bibliographie der deutschen Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaften - BDSL

    As university library user I would like to retrieve contents from the Bibliography of German Literature and Literary Studies (BDSL) while searching in the Summon Index. This would enrich my search results with relevant resources in the field of German studies and also give me the possibility to get this database recommended.

    The Bibliography of German Literature and Literary Studies (Bibliographie der deutschen Sprach- und Literaturwissenschaften, BDSL) is the most important bibliographical database in the field of Germanic studies and German literature, covering information about publications on German language and literature since 1957 and including ca. 450.000 entries of monographs…
