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. French MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) vocabulary implementation

    As a scientific librarian in a French-speaking university hospital in Switzerland, I would like to have the opportunity for our library users to search also with French medical subject headings.

    The NLM (National Library of Medicine) MeSH vocabulary https://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/ is already implemented in Alma but Inserm (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) https://www.inserm.fr/ did its translation http://mesh.inserm.fr/FrenchMesh/ and is available for download here http://mesh.inserm.fr/FrenchMesh/conditions_en.htm

    The implementation of French MeSH would be very useful for users to search with controlled terms in their own language and / or for library professionals to set cross-references between French and…

    • Elsevier hybrid Open Access journals

      There are several hybrid OA journals - meaning that only some articles are Open Access and most are behind a paywall - in the portfolio ELSEVIER_SCIENCE_DIRECT_OPEN_ACCESS_JOURNALS-getFullTxt . Since these are not freely available cover-to-cover, it would be more appropriate to put these in a new service ELSEVIER_SCIENCE_DIRECT_OPEN_ACCESS_JOURNALS-getSelectedFullTxt

      Attached is a list of several hybrid OA journals on the ScienceDirect platform.

      • Why vote on content enhancements?

        Why vote on content enhancement requests? ExLibris should automatically update verified content in the knowledgebase. Considering how much libraries spend on electronic resources, maintaining the knowledgebase should be a high priority. Serials Solutions does this very well.

                Hi all!
                We subscribed to a huge collection of ebooks published by the Institute of Civil Engineers. The specific SFX target exists (ICE_VIRTUAL_LIBRARY_BOOKS) and works perfectly, but we couldn't find the equivalent source on the Primo Central Index.

                                    • British Online Archives

                                      Records for publications contained in British Online Archives should be added to Primo Central. The resource is published by Microform Academic Publishers and is available at https://www.britishonlinearchives.co.uk/

                                      There are a number of collections within this resource (about 60). I am not sure whether all subscriptions offer the full range of content or whether the separate collections will need to be managed within Primo Central.

                                      They have full-text indexing of the materials so ideally this would be available in Primo Central too.

                                          Hello,

                                          This content was also raised as part of the NERS voting cycle and is currently under review.
                                          Based on past responsiveness from this provider, we will reach out again in the hopes of establishing a working agreement, in 2019.

                                          Thank you,
                                          Rael
