Content

We welcome your ideas for new content (metadata) to add to the Knowledge Bases (KBs - Alma CZ, SFX, 360) and Discovery services (CDI - Central Discovery Index whose data supports Primo and Summon).


How to increase your idea's visibility and get more votes:
  1. Check if your idea has already been posted and vote for it before posting a new idea.
  2. Choose the right category: "New Provider" for content from a provider that has no available content in the KBs or CDI, or "Existing Provider" for content from a provider that already has content available in the KBs or CDI.
  3. Add a direct link to the provider/resource you suggest, and a contact person if possible.
  4. For enrichment requests add the relevant collection ID(s). 
  5. Make sure you mention any specific added value your idea has to the community such as language or supporting diversity.
  6. Did you find errors in an existing collection? please open a case.
  7. A new year has begun but no corresponding annual collection? post an idea in Idea Exchange, make sure to mention if it is an existing provider.


The categories for new content ideas are:
  1. Existing Provider - if your idea is for a new collection from a provider that already has content available in the KBs and CDI or enriching records for an existing collection, use this category. No voting is necessary, ideas for existing providers will be handled regardless of voting.
  2. New Providers - if your idea is for content from a provider that does not have any content available in the KBs and CDI, choose this category.
  3. Other - for non provider specific ideas

If you want to add an institutional repository, please open a case and follow the documentation here:

  1. Improve the metadata of Dalloz Bibliothèque in CZ and CDI

    • Dalloz Bibliothèque
    • Collection ID : 613680000000000037
    • CDI Collection ID (DB ID): O7M
    • Material type : books (currently : 2576)

    The quality of the metadata for Dalloz Bibliothèque in the CZ and CDI is extremely poor (sometimes only one title). Please, consider enriching the metadata with those coming from the SUDOC (more complete and of better quality). Enrichment could perhaps be based on the PPN (SUDOC identifier) that you have already injected into the CZ records?

  3. Change the 'Citation Online' feature for the content type=Report for ASFA records when full text is available

    I would like to propose that the content type=Report for Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts (ASFA) records are changed so that ASFA records with Full text links can be shown instead of 'Citation Online' which is misleading to the client. We have inputted thousands of government document records in ASFA which have a full text link but these links are not currently displayed in the Summon Brief results. ASFA is no longer just an abstract and indexing database as it now includes links to full text publications and grey literature. This should be changed as it can impact all users…

  5. Enrich metadata from vendor Editions ENI in the Alma CZ

    The ebook records in the e-collection "Bibliotheque numerique ENI" have currently brief level 3. So generally only ISBNs, publication year and title in their metadata. This is not enough to provide optimal discovery experience for users.

    We would like to ask you to enrich the metadata and enhance the brief level. We are also in contact with the publisher and will post here any feedback from their side.

  12. Add the "freely available" titles in the EZB "Medicine" category as a new target

    Add the "freely available" titles in the EZB "Medicine" category as a new target for the SFX Knowledgebase. There are already many EZB (University Library of Regensburg Electronic Journals Library) targets in SFX, including the ZB-FREE-00999FREELYAVAILABLEEZBJOURNALS full-text target. This currently contains around 68,000 free title object portfolios.

    We would like to be able to use the "Medicine" subset of the free target (currently 8,977 titles) as many of the other titles are not relevant to our clinicians

  13. Center for Research Libraries full text collection in PCI

    We would like to see a new subcollection in Primo Central Index for the Center for Research Libraries "Online Catalog".

    Records in the Online Catalog PCI collection currently link to both CRL metadata only records and CRL records with digitized content.

    If there was a CRL Online Catalog Full Text Only collection (with Link in Record) that only contained "Available online for Center for Research Libraries" (excluding the "Hathitrust available" records) we could activate that collection with assurance our users would be pointed to full text content.

    This content would only be available to CRL members.

  15. Better Metadata for HANSER_ELIBRARY_BOOKS

    The bib records in the electronic collection Hanser Elibrary Books are very poor and sometimes even wrong.

    i.e. MMS-ID 993440000000000927:
    LDR -----cam-a22-----z--4500
    008 210309u1916uuuuuuuuu-|-o----u|----|dut-d
    035 __ |a (CKB)3440000000000927
    245 00 |a VoIP Praxisleitfaden
    776 __ |z 3-446-44491-2
    776 __ |z 3-446-44814-4
    906 __ |a BOOK

    Authors, title and other bibliographic information are missing, year and language are wrong.

    The publisher Hanser offers libraries much better metadata, therefore I suggest to improve it in the CZ.
