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.
West Los Angeles College Library
We will investigate adding this content alongside our inquiry to ingest this content in our Discovery products.
Thank you for your contribution!
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 for raising this request.
We will check if a signed agreement is required here in order to start the analysis and then will prioritize for future acquisition.
BrowZine offers the SJR for each magazine. If that was an option in the EJP, we could let go of BrowZine and have students go straight to the EJP for everything full-text journal-related.1 vote
Esperamos que CDI indexe el contenido disponible de “Dissertations & Theses” de la base de datos “ABI/INFORM GLOBAL” y otras que no son la base de datos “Dissertations & Theses Global” para que puedan ser recuperadas desde Primo.1 vote
For example, if my initials are like DBob and I have pin and linked serials and monographs every day in different languages, is it possible to rig up an add-on to the software Voyager that could link users with what work they did based on language or in general? That way, instead of items being hand counted, the library tech or the clerk who does inventory could just run a scan and see their numbers?1 vote
Journal of School Counseling is located in EBSCO Education Research Complete and Free e-Journals and is not currently indexed/included in CDI. Request that this journal be included.
Henry Stewart Talks provides high quality MARC records for their collection at https://hstalks.com/librarian-information/?biosci#nav-marc and claims they're already sending them to ProQuest for inclusion in the Alma CZ (and somehow put a large Primo/Alma logo on this page as a "discovery partner"), however, the actual records in the CZ are very brief records.
The CZ should include these records (and someone should figure out how they're getting lost if this "partnership" really exists...)1 vote
We will renew our discussion with Henry Stewart Talks to determine next steps for this enrichment request.
