Content

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.

How can we improve Content?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Academic e-books from Norwegian publishers via Allvit / Bokbasen

    The Norwegian academic publishers will be making a large selection of their academic books and publications available as e-books in 2019. This is part of a national effort to strengthen the position of Norwegian as a language used in academic and research publications as well as in bachelor- and master-level studies in Norway.

    Bokbasen (https://www.bokbasen.no) is developing an online solution for purchasing and administration of library licenses for these academic e-books from Norwegian publishers, and we would like to have this collection included in Alma ‘s Community Zone.

  6. Knowledge Unlatched KU Select 2017

    Dear support

    Since the contents of Knowledge Unlatched until KU Select 2016 successfully received a target, I hereby like to request a target for KU Select 2017 as well.

    Concerning the information flow, the provider recommends Ex Libris to use the XML feed available in the KU platform (tailored for sharing metadata with distribution partners). This way Ex Libris can rest assured that they always include the latest Open Access books and future Open Access collections. Furthermore, the provider would be thankful to have a contact person at Ex Libris in order to make the inclusion of new content within…

  10. Brepolis Databases

    Brepols Publishers is an international academic publisher of works in the humanities. The focus of its publications lies in "source-works" from Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. By this is meant critical editions of original texts and documents in their original language, reference works such as encyclopaedias, handbooks and bibliographies, as well as monograph studies and cutting-edge research.

    The following Brepolis databases (online encyclopedias, handbooks and bibliographies) would significantly enrich the indexes if there were added to Primo Central and Summon:
    - L'Année Philologique
    - Bibliography of British and Irish History
    - International Medieval Bibliography
    - Bibliographie…

  11. Possible to index NewsBank's Access World News?

    Hello,

    Here at Philadelphia University, we subscribe to a database called Access World News, a product of NewsBank. However, Access World News is not indexed by Summon, which creates a substantial deficit for our patrons who seek to canvass all of our resources using Summon.

    I am writing to ask if it would be possible for you to index this database.

    Please let me know, and thank you for your consideration.

    Cheers,

    damien.

  12. E-Book target for SFX

    Dear support

    In the attachment I send you a list with open access titles of the publisher Nomos, which should therefore have an appropriate target attached to them. May I kindly ask you to create a target named " NOMOS_ELIBRARY_OPEN_ACCESS_EBOOKS" and attach it to the titles in the attachment?

    Many thanks and best wishes

    Hello,

    As you may be aware via another Lynda.com request on the Idea Exchange, we have been unable to get in touch with the vendor.

    If the community could reach out to facilitate communication, we would be more than willing to process this request and negotiate an agreement with Lynda.com.
    Until then, we cannot move forward here.

  16. Classiques Sciences Sociales Free

    Classiques Sciences Sociales Free collection is composed of more than 4,300 portfolios. Most of the records are very poor: only the title, one author, and the eISBN. The publication date in 008/7-10 is usually incorrect.
    Full Marc records exist for these items and are available under certain conditions (for libraries) at http://classiques.uqac.ca/inter/telechargement_notices.php?lang=en
    Note also that Les Classiques des sciences sociales actually contain more than 6,500 free works http://classiques.uqac.ca . A general update of this collection would be welcome.

  19. Missing subtarget FIAF_INTERNATIONAL_INDEX_TO_FILM_PERIODICALS_JOURNALS (publisher OVID)

    Dear support

    Referring to Salesforce case 00552970, I like to ask you to create a subtarget FIAF_INTERNATIONAL_INDEX_TO_FILM_PERIODICALS_JOURNALS and attach the target "OVID" to it. The URL is http://ovidsp.uk.ovid.com/sp-3.30.0b/ovidweb.cgi, the content equals the one available on FIAF via EBSCO.

    Can you contact the provider OVID, so that he can allow his version of FIAF to be added to the SFX KB?

    Thank you.
