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. 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…

    Hello, 


    As you know, Kanopy is now owned by OverDrive. We are currently working with OverDrive and discussing the legal and technical possibilities of ingesting their content, including a conversation about Kanopy. 

    We expect this to be a lengthy process, but can report that it is in progress. 


    Best,

    Hello all, 


    While we are still working to reach a legal agreement with OverDrive to enable us to index their content in our CDI, we will be adding the OverDrive Magazine collections to our Knowledgebases.

  7. 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.

  15. Need two CZ Selective Packages for 'Westlaw Thomson Reuters' database

    It would be useful to have two Selective Packages for the ‘Westlaw Thomson Reuters’ database. One Selective package for ‘International’ content, and another for ‘US’ content.

    At our library we provide a link to each of the two ‘sides’ of the database, as Article Title searches on each ‘side’ produce different results, depending on which ‘side’ the article is found. If an article is in the ‘US’ side, it can be found by an Article Title search on the ‘US’ side, but not on the ‘International’ side (and vice versa). (Journal Title searches allow the journal to be found the…

  17. Improve indexing of HAL in CDI

    Hal is one of the most important French open archive. The database offers open access documents directly from the platform and references to documents for which the full text is not available.
    In CDI two collections allow to activate the search on this database.
    - Hyper Article en Ligne (HAL) (Open Access) (ID CDI VOOES) which covers only open access records.
    - Hyper Article Online (HAL) (CDI ID 1XC) which covers all the records in HAL.
    Both of the HAL collections are link-in-records databases
    The problem is that it shows as unavailable the records to which we could have gained…

  19. E-Book target for SFX: Textes littéraires français

    Dear Support

    In the attachment I send you a title list of the collection "Textes littéraires français" from the Publisher Librairie Droz, which should therefore have an appropriate target attached to them. May I kindly ask you to create a target named TEXTESLITTERAIRESFRANCAIS_EBOOKS an attach it to the titles in the attachment?

    Many thanks and best wishes

    Please also explore the possibility of using Bloomberg Law MARC records to enrich the CZ records: https://www.bna.com/marc-records-bloomberg-m17179934017 Without enriched CZ records, libraries that are currently loading vendor records for this collection are likely to continue doing so rather than use a CZ collection.
