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 Firenze University press open access book collection

    Firenze University Press publishes the outcomes of academic research carried out by the University of Florence and by the national scientific community, with the aim at spreading them both at national and international levels.
    A certain number of these works are included in the open access catalogue.
    All publications are certified by the Editorial Board that coordinates the peer review process.

    It's possible harvesting data via OAI-PMH.

  2. 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…

  3. Factiva (separate electronic collections for different subscription products)

    I would like separate electronic collections in the Community Zone for Factiva, specific to the academic subscription product and non-academic subscription products.

    We have an academic subscription to Factiva and have activated the Electronic Collection 'Factiva' in the Community Zone. When you follow the links to full text in many of the portfolio records, you get a message saying 'No search results. This may be due to content restrictions on your academic account'. I believe this is because this single electronic collection contains records relating to content that is available to subscribers of the academic product, but also records relating…

  5. LinkedIn Learning Videos

    please see https://learning.linkedin.com/en-us/partners to become a partner for LinkedIn Learning (formerly Lynda.com) for bib records for their online courses. I believe this should be in CDI and/orPCI.

    Hello all,

    As you are aware, we have made many attempts to establish contact with Lynda.com, and now LinkedIn, for the purpose of ingesting this content in our Index.

    We are reaching out to our community with the hopes that you can assist us in creating the necessary momentum to reach an agreement with LinkedIn.

    Until that time, this Idea will be on hold.

    Best,
    Rael

  6. Add DigiZeitschriften to PCI / CDI

    We would like to see the journal platform DigiZeitschriften added to PCI / CDI.

    For more information, see: https://www.digizeitschriften.de/en/

    In Alma there are already 3 Electronic Collections:
    - DigiZeitschriften Open Access
    - DigiZeitschriften Subscription
    - DigiZeitschriften Journals

    Please keep this subdivision in PCI / CDI.

    Since this source contains many old journals without ISSN, it would probably be better if the links to the full text came directly from DigiZeitschriften (Primo Link section) to avoid problems with the link resolver (Alma ViewIt).

    Thanks in advance!

  9. 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…

  10. Create Target EZB-FREE-00999

    The Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek Regensburg published a new collection EZB-FREE-00999 for download (see http://ezb.uni-regensburg.de/services/collections.phtml). Can you please use it to create a target in SFX and a collection in Alma accordingly?

    Alternatively you may use EZB-FREE-00999 to update the existing ELEKTRONISCHEZEITSCHRIFTENBIBLIOTHEKFREIZUGANGLICHEE_JOURNALS regularly.
    Kind regards
    Andreas Bigger

  15. Portico Post-cancellation/perpetual access

    In 360 KB and SFX (maybe in Alma as well) there exist several databases for Portico - triggered Content.

    But Portico has a supplementary offer that is called "Portico - Post-cancellation/perpetual access". This offer contains journals from various publishers where the post-cancellation access is partly not through the platform of the publisher but through Portico.

    You find some information about this offer here: https://www.portico.org/for-participants/#pca

    The title lists for this database can be found here: https://www.portico.org/coverage/titles/ - it includes e-journals and e-books.

    I ask you to add this database to SFX and 360 KB (and Alma if it doesn't exist there…

  16. Add Ca’ Foscari University Press open access collection (digital journals and monograph series)

    Please consider adding the following open access collection to the CommunityZone:

    https://edizionicafoscari.unive.it/en/edizioni4/catalogo/

    Edizioni Ca’ Foscari (ECF) publishes journals and monographic series in digital format in all areas of academic research. All publications are made available through the Internet with free and open access.
    All texts and research are published after an evaluation process carried out by the Scientific Committee, which will ensure their quality. They are then subjected to the Editorial Staff and are treated with the purpose of indexing in the major bibliographic online databases.

  18. Springer Nature Open Access Community Zone Electronic Collection

    This is a request to add a single free/open access collection for all Springer Nature free/open access journals. Currently there are 4 community zone collections in Alma with many overlaps:

    SpringerOpen Free - (CKB)613170000000000044

    BioMed Central open Access - (CKB)611000000000000500

    Bacon Springer Nature Global Open Access - (CKB)613780000000000900
    Springer Nature Oa Journals - (CKB)614910000000000075

    We’d like the addition of one single consolidated collection because having the above 4 collections is unnecessarily confusing for students and staff as they currently encounter so many electronic collections for the same journal/article even when different community zone electronic collection links in Primo end up…
