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 OA flag to Community Zone Open Access ebook collections where they are missing

    Some Alma CZ ebook e-collections do not include a MARC 506 field that would add the OA flag to Primo search results. This means that these titles are not included in the Open Access facet under Availability - even though the names of the e-collections state that they are open access.

    Eg:

    Project Euclid Open Access Monographs
    Bloomsbury Open Access
    Brillonline Open Access Books
    International Monetary Fund eLibrary Open Access
    JSTOR Books Open Access
    Project Muse Open Access Books
    Smithsonian Research Online - Open Access (Smithsonian)
    Taylor & Francis eBooks Open Access
    Walter De Gruyter: Open Access eBooks

  3. Open Textbook Catalog: Please use direct feed of MARC records from https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery

    In the CZ there is an existing collection (613790000000001601) for the Open Textbook Catalog.

    Compared to the MARC records available at https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery the CZ collection has fewer titles (651 vs 766 as of 07/13/2020).

    Also the CZ bibliographic records are extremely brief and usually have nothing more than a title in the 245 field. The bib records from open.umn.edu are fuller with author, title, publisher, content and summary notes and subject headings.

    This request is to ask Exlibris to use the publicly available MARC bib records from the open.umn.edu website to enhance the existing CZ collection.

    Thank you.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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?).

  8. 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.

  9. CZ Enhancement

    Full-text, title-by-title inclusion for resources in these databases/collections

    • The American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection L’Annee Philologique AP Images
    • Archives of Sexuality & Gender: LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940
    • Arte Publico Hispanic Historical Collection ARTFL (although I suspect we’re getting access to a fair number in the texts in here from Gallica or HathiTrust)
    • Black Abolitionist Papers
    • China Academic Journals

    • LatAm Studies (we have access to some, but not all, journals through other sources)

    • Nietzsches Werke…

  10. 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.

  13. Australian Biblical Review - summon coverage

    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.

  15. Use better records for Henry Stewart Talks

    Henry Stewart Talks provides high quality MARC records for their collection at https://hstalks.com/librarian-information/?biosci#nav-marc and claims they're already sending them to ProQuest for inclusion in the Alma CZ (and somehow put a large Primo/Alma logo on this page as a "discovery partner"), however, the actual records in the CZ are very brief records.

    The CZ should include these records (and someone should figure out how they're getting lost if this "partnership" really exists...)

  17. GALEGROUP EIGHTEENTH CENTURY COLLECTIONS ONLINE I

    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.
