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. Idunn open access e-books

    Idunn open access e-books

    We would like to see open access e-books from Universitetsforlaget added as a separate e-collection in Alma CZ. For more details, see this link:
    https://www.universitetsforlaget.no/en/boker/apen-tilgang

    Note that there are two Idunn e-collections in CZ already:
    Idunn.no (all Idunn portfolios)
    IDUNN Open Acess Journals

  3. LibreTexts

    We would like to add LibreTexts vast collection of open educational resources (OER) to CDI: https://libretexts.org/

    LibreTexts is home to the largest collection of open educational resources online. Adding this resource to CDI would ensure users have access to OER from across a wide variety of disciplines.

  4. 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

    Please consider…

  5. Pressbooks Directory

    The Pressbooks Directory (https://pressbooks.directory/) indexes over 2000 open access books created by educational institutions. As many of these are not indexed separately, it would be great if the contents of the directory could be included in the Alma Community Zone and/or the Central Discovery Index.

  6. Add LibreTexts ebooks and course material to Alma CZ

    We would like to add LibreTexts vast collection of open educational resources (OER), including ebooks and course materials bibliographic records added to the Alma CZ: https://libretexts.org/ Then, libraries could add LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to course reserve lists in Alma and Primo.

    LibreTexts is home to the largest collection of open educational resources online. Adding LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to the Alma CZ would ensure users have access to OER from across a wide variety of disciplines.

  8. Improve indexing of HAL in CDI

    Hal is one of the most important French open archive. The database offers open access documents directly from the platform and references to documents for which the full text is not available.
    In CDI two collections allow to activate the search on this database.
    - Hyper Article en Ligne (HAL) (Open Access) (ID CDI VOOES) which covers only open access records.
    - Hyper Article Online (HAL) (CDI ID 1XC) which covers all the records in HAL.
    Both of the HAL collections are link-in-records databases
    The problem is that it shows as unavailable the records to which we could have gained…

  9. Añadir los paquetes "VLEX Global" y "Vlex Premiun" en la CZ de ALMA

    En la CZ de Alma hay dos bases de datos del editor Vlex: Vlex Books y Vlex Journals. Sin embargo este editor no comercializa de esta manera sus paquetes. Es posible suscribir Vlex Global (donde hay libros y revistas) y Vlex Premiun (donde también hay libros y revistas). Si un cliente suscribe Vlex Global debe dar de alta una colección local de libros, otra local de revistas y no seleccionar títulos del paquete de revistas y del paquete de libros que hay en la CZ.

    ¿Sería posible que se reunieran con el editor para que las colecciones de Vlex que…

  11. New Community Zone electronic collection request: IET Open Access Journals on Wiley Online Library

    The University of Strathclyde requests the addition of a new CZ collection for IET Open Access titles that are now available on the Research Hub on Wiley Online Library. The details of the 43 titles to be added are listed here: https://ietresearch.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/
    Currently the IET titles are available on the ‘Wiley Online Library Open Access’ collection (Collection ID: 614330000000000427)’ however the content has now moved from the main Wiley Online Library ( https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com ) site to the Research Hub on Wiley Online ( https://ietresearch.onlinelibrary.wiley.com ), and the links no longer work. We would prefer if the IET Journals had their…

  12. CZ AMD bib material type revised

    There are many AMD related collections (Collection ID: 61616107200003966; Collection ID: 61616086800003966 and so on) in ALMA CZ. We found many resources bib material type are defined as JOURNAL, which is wrong compared with the real situation(They may be manscript,document ,photograph in the database platform). However, we cannot upload electronic material type in batch to replace.

    We think CZ should confirm and fix the wrong bib material type.

  14. 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.

  16. Add an independent collection to the journals of NCTM; National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

    The journals are part of the "Single Journals" collection, and since they are sold as a package, it is very difficult to handle the order and payment when the journals do not have a separate package.

  17. INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS- add collection

    Please add a separate collection for the INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICAL STATISTICS's journals at Alma Community Zone.
    Currently, their portfolios exist under the Project Euclid collection with many other various publishers that are hosted on it.
    This makes it impossible to open an order for the complete package as it is sold by the publisher.
    Titles in the collection:
    Annales de I'lnstitut Henri Poincaré (B) Probabilités et Statistiques (ISSN 0246‐0203)
    The Annals of Applied Probability (ISSN 1050‐5164)
    The Annals of Probability (ISSN 0091‐1798)
