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. 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…

  2. Include all Full View HathiTrust (Hathi Trust) content and not just Public Domain

    HathiTrust collections are defined by access rights; materials that are fully accessible to users are within their Full View collection, which includes Public Domain, Open Access, Creative Commons, and other materials to which owners have given permissions for access. Materials restricted in access are defined as Limited - Search Only; these materials include those with copyright restrictions. These two categories, Full View and Limited - Search Only can be further refined by geographical region, for US or non-US. Info about access rights is at https://www.hathitrust.org/access_use and info about data files is at https://www.hathitrust.org/data.

  3. Need up-to-date 'Westlaw Thomson Reuters' CZ Selective Package

    There is no up-to-date ‘Westlaw Thomson Reuters’ Selective Package in the Community Zone. This Westlaw database has had much flux over recent years, including name changes.
    Due to internal changes of where particular content is kept in the database, even in the most recent CZ Selective Packages many parser parameter links need to be updated.

  5. 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…

  6. Classiques Sciences Sociales Free

    Classiques Sciences Sociales Free collection is composed of more than 4,300 portfolios. Most of the records are very poor: only the title, one author, and the eISBN. The publication date in 008/7-10 is usually incorrect.
    Full Marc records exist for these items and are available under certain conditions (for libraries) at http://classiques.uqac.ca/inter/telechargement_notices.php?lang=en
    Note also that Les Classiques des sciences sociales actually contain more than 6,500 free works http://classiques.uqac.ca . A general update of this collection would be welcome.

    Hello all,

    Unfortunately, we have not been successful in contacting this vendor.
    Before closing this Idea, I would like to reach out to you to inquire if you have a contact person that we could reach out to once again, in the hopes of promoting this Idea.

    Please kindly comment here or feel free to send me contact details directly.

    Thank you,

  7. Sherpa RoMEO indicator embedding

    Embed a Sherpa RoMEO colour indicator and a mouse-over floating tip reading info from RoMEO about a journal's copyright and self-archiving policy.

    Doing this for the search results on EJP could be a great favor.

    Sherpo RoMEO pubs data under CC BY-NC-ND license which seems to ban EL from re-using them? Or EL may talk to them.

  8. LexisNexis Law Schools

    Please add portfolios to the LexisNexis Law Schools electronic collection in the Community Zone.

    (Note: this collection already exists in the Serials Solutions Knowledgebase, as LexisNexis Advance, with a title count of 15,431. Could the metadata be migrated to Alma, since both are now owned by ProQuest?).

  10. MARC Enrichment for Loeb Classical Library

    A lot of the MARC records for Loeb Classical Library (995553412900041) in the Community Zone are brief records. It would be nice to see these records enriched.

    Summon Index does not have records for the articles from the journal, Australian Biblical Review. Could you please include the metadata so that this Australian content (which sometimes gets left until last) is discoverable.

  16. Please use vendor-available MARC records to configure the Gale Slavery and Anti-Slavery collections pts 2-4 as selective packages (as pt 1)

    Alma CZ collections for the Gale Slavery and Anti-Slavery collections (parts I-IV) were added recently. Part I is configured as a selective package with portfolios for the individual titles, but parts II-IV are configured as databases with no portfolios. Can you please also configure the collections labeled part II through part IV as selective packages, too, and add portfolios for them as well? See my salesforce case #00411679 about this. MARC records are available from Gale Cengage for titles in all four parts.

  17. Enrich bib records in openedition_freemium - they are currently very poor.

    Records for titles in this open access collection are currently so poor that librarians and students are missing them in our Primo.

    Please can the bib record portfolios for this Community Zone collection be enriched, some of them are incredibly poor and scant.
    We have received complaints from some of our users and librarians about the lack of bibliographic information in these ebook records.

    An example of a brief record is "The adventures of Roderick Random" MMS ID 993360000000079640
    There is no author, publisher, publication date, isbn, only a partial title.

  20. Index the Journal of Hospice and Palliative Nursing

    The Summon indexing of this journal appears incomplete from 2009 to present. It's well used for courses, so it would be really helpful if it were fully indexed.
