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".

  1. Periodicals Archive Online

    ProQuest's Periodicals Archive Online has some rich metadata for journal articles that would be a valuable addition to the PCI.

    For example:
    Dahl, R.A. 1957, "The Concept of Power", Behavioral science, vol. 2, no. 3, pp. 201

    There is no metadata present in the PCI but Proquest have full details (Proquest document ID - 1301269515) and would enhance our use of this resource if it existed in Primo.

    • Internet Archive

      The Internet Archive https://archive.org is a 501(c)(3) non-profit library. Founded in 1996, their mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge. They collect published works and make them available in digital formats.

      Nowadays, the Archive contains 11 million books and texts, 4 million audio recordings (including 160,000 live concerts), 3 million videos (including 1 million Television News programs), and 1 million images. Books published prior to 1923 are available for download, and hundreds of thousands of modern books can be borrowed (free of charge).

      Certainly a good candidate for Primo Central and Summon indexes...

      • 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…

          • Add Odilo Library to the Summon Index.

            Add the digital library platform Odilo to collections indexed in Summon. It is used by many universities to offer their e-publications (i.e. https://uv.odilotk.es )
            We have done the same suggestion to Odilo staff and they recommended that Summon use Odilo API to get and update the content.

            • Please add the Bibliotech eTextbook platform as an integration with Alma and Primo

              Please add an integration with the Bibliotech platform, which is used by a number of universities in the UK, likely with more to be added internationally. Integrations with Alma and Primo are in particularly high demand, although integrating with Leganto too would be ideal.

                • Add Trove: Pictures, Photos, Objects to Discovery

                  The 'Pictures' zone of the National Library of Australia's Trove service serves descriptions and (where possible) thumbnail images of pictures and objects held in Australian libraries and museums, as well as curated images of Australian history and life from Flickr. This would be incredibly valuable to Australian Ex Libris subscribers as well as anyone studying Australian history and culture, and would complement the New Zealand image collection that is currently indexed.

                  http://trove.nla.gov.au/picture?q=

                  Trove staff seem to be happy to work with other institutions to expose Australian material to a wider audience. Trove metadata is set up to be able…

                  • I would like Summon to index the CCH Australia collection from Wolters Kluwer

                    The purchasing of content is optimized when users can access the content via Summon. Particularly content that is not well represented such as Law within our geographic zone.
                    When vendors are agreeing to have their content in the KB I think they are automatically assuming that this allows the content to be used within Summon.

                                    • finish indexing International Journal of Mass Emergencies and Disasters (IJMED) articles

                                      Only 26 IJMED (ISSN 0280-7270) articles are indexed in Summon. It would be invaluable to be able to access all 24 years' worth of articles through Summon.
