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.

  2. Add a metadata correction layer for PCI

    Many times when we found wrong metadata in PCI and reported to Ex Libris for correction, it took them a long time to contact the data vendors to make the corrections. Sometimes they never can get response or correction from the vendors, and the wrong metadata stayed in PCI without any changes. The wrong metadata is really misleading and cannot generate the correct OpenURLs for users to reach the full text articles. I would suggest Ex Libris to build an internal metadata correction layer for the PCI data to improve its quality. With this layer, even the vendors don't correct…

  5. Brepolis Databases

    Brepols Publishers is an international academic publisher of works in the humanities. The focus of its publications lies in "source-works" from Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. By this is meant critical editions of original texts and documents in their original language, reference works such as encyclopaedias, handbooks and bibliographies, as well as monograph studies and cutting-edge research.

    The following Brepolis databases (online encyclopedias, handbooks and bibliographies) would significantly enrich the indexes if there were added to Primo Central and Summon:
    - L'Année Philologique
    - Bibliography of British and Irish History
    - International Medieval Bibliography
    - Bibliographie…

    Hello all,

    As you are aware, we have made many attempts to establish contact with Lynda.com, and now LinkedIn, for the purpose of ingesting this content in our Index.

    We are reaching out to our community with the hopes that you can assist us in creating the necessary momentum to reach an agreement with LinkedIn.

    Until that time, this Idea will be on hold.

    Best,

  8. 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!
