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:

    Hello,

    We are having issues with the feed from the provider, which contains selected Open Access titles as well as book chapter metadata instead of only title level metadata.

    This is tracked in the Known Issues page:

    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Content/Knowledge_Articles/Provider_Known_Issues/Ex_Libris_Content_Issues_In_Progress

    There is no timeline for resolving this, so we cannot update the collection.

    Hello,

    The provider responded that there are no associated ISBNs with the collections, so they cannot make it into a title list. 

    They suggested you should send feedback to T&F to address the discovery issue.

    As a result, we will have to keep it as a zero-title database.

    Hello,

    We discussed this with the provider, and Newsbank's sales model does not allow to sustainably monitor and track such a request.

    Each customer has different holdings and interfaces, making a single collection unsuitable for all.

    You can use NEWSBANK_SINGLE_TITLES_ARCHIVE_COLLECTION which allows you to choose your own archive and modify coverage dates according to your agreement with Newsbank.

    Hi,


    The provider has confirmed that the missing annual collection you requested does not exist as part of their products, therefore we are not able to add it.


    If you have information from the provider that suggests otherwise, please forward it to tamar.ganor@clarivate.com.

  7. Update Bloomsbury Education and Childhood Studies

    We activated the Education & Childhood Studies CZ collection but are waiting for the CZ collection to be updated to reflect the 2023 autumn update. We set our collection so that new portfolios are automatically updated but the collection doesn't seem to have been updated since 27/09/23. There are currently 189 titles in the collection, the latest creation date being 26/02/2023. My colleague has checked a few of the new titles just for the sake of completeness and although they are in the CZ they aren't in the Education & Childhood Studies collections as yet.

  14. Post additional standard organizations on ASTM platform

    ASTM has several standard organizations that we (as customers) can subscribe to. Each of these should have their own community zone collection with CDI.
    International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), UNE-EN ISO

    There may need to be more than one ISO collection as I'm not sure if all standards are available everywhere regardless of subscription location.

According to their website, the Editor's Choice section is editorial commentary on research. Can the articles from this section of the Science Signaling journal be relabeled as "review" to increase clarity?

    Hello,

    "ひつじ研究叢書" is series title and the provider 丸善 is introducing it for sale or for marketing.

    You do not have to buy all the titles of the series, so there is no need in a new collection.

    Please select the relevant titles in 360, SFX, and Alma Marurzen Ebook Library (DBID:MOSFZ), and activate according to your agreement with Maruzen.

    Let me know directly if there are any issues with the suggested solution

    The existing provider is The Cancer Letter, Inc.

    The two existing portfolios are:
    The Cancer Letter: Portfolio ID: 53613678640007861
    The Clinical Cancer Letter: Portfolio ID: 53613678610007861
