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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Add Overdrive to 360 KB and Summon

    Many academic libraries are using this product. It would be good to have integrated into discovery systems.

  9. 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.

    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.

    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)

  17. PCI / CDI: Please make sure that Open Access archives are really OA

    In Primo Central Index / Central Discovery Index, some archives are incorrectly referred to as Open Access.

    Please check the availability of documents in Open Access archives with "Link in record". If these archives sometimes also contain blocked documents or only title pages, tables of contents or abstracts, please split these archives into several collections, e.g. Open Access and Restricted Access.

    Records which link only to title pages, tables of contents or abstracts should not appear in Open Access collections with "Link in record".

    Example:
    Open Access LMU (https://epub.ub.uni-muenchen.de)
    Auf "Open Access LMU" finden Sie 64725 verzeichnete Publikationen…

  18. Add "subscribe by email" and other ways to monitor CKB release notes

    It is crucial for us to monitor CKB release notes to ensure that collection activations are appropriately revised in response to changes. At present, the only way to monitor the notes is by RSS feed, which is cumbersome -- it is very easy to miss changes with only RSS feed updates. Please add other means of monitoring these changes, such as subscribing to the release notes by email.
