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.

  1. 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…

    We will investigate adding this content.
    Please note that Knowledge Unlatched work with “rounds”, for example “round 2” represents 2016 and 2017.
    We will look into how this content is represented for Delivery.

    Best,

  7. 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.

  10. jove

    We have access to the following 6 JoVE Science Education modules, but because there are no corresponding ALMA electronic collections we cannot activate them and make them available to our users:
    JoVE Science Education: Aeronautical Engineering;
    JoVE Science Education: Core: Biology;
    JoVE Science Education:Core:Psychology;
    JoVE Science Education: Lab Bio;
    JoVE Science Education: Immunology;
    JoVE Science Education: Microbiology;

    These modules were made available on JoVE at the start of 2020 but there is still no corresponding collections available in ALMA CZ.

  20. Add books from Proquest's Oasis database to PCI

    We are recommending Primo to our users as the route to suggest new books for purchase. However, PCI is not great for books, unless they are part of a publisher's e-book collection.

    Proquest have their own database of books in print via Oasis - this would be a fantastic addition to PCI and would greatly facilitate purchase requests or resource sharing requests via Primo.
