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:

  5. "Architectural Institute of Japan Search System (日本建築学会論文等検索システム - 機関定額制)" for discovery

    "Architectural Institute of Japan Search System (日本建築学会論文等検索システム - 機関定額制)" is a database managed by Architectural Institute of Japan.
    It contains many publications published by Architectural Institute of Japan.
    Some of journals has been covered by existing databases like IRDB, J-STAGE but this database includes not only academic journals but also conference reports or any other type of contents, and they are not searchable on discovery.

    https://www.aij.or.jp/paper/search.html

    It would be helpful for researchers if Ex Libris discovery included this database as a search target.

  9. 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?

    There maybe an interest to have C-SPAN loaded at the CDI level now that an OAI_PMH feed is available?
