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:

  1. Enrich CZ bib data for Africa Commons: Southern African Films and Documentaries

    The Africa Commons: Southern African Films and Documentaries collection is a collection of films from Africa. It looks like the portfolios and bibs were created by loading a KBART file. That process creates bib records that contain very little data (just a 245 title, a 260 publisher, and a 906 VIDEO). See attached example of a typical bib in this collection. Could Ex Libris please work with the provider, Coherent Digital, to overlay the brief bibs with full bibs? This is a collection of films from southern Africa that are not available from any other source, so enriching this bib…

    Hi Andrew,

    Hello,
    We will reach out to IEEE, and ask for the metadata for this collection.

    We are reluctant to use customer provided title lists because then we cannot automate the collections and they will not be updated with any additions, removals or changes.

    Also, one customer's holdings may not reflect other customer's holdings so we prefer to use the provider feed.
    Thanks,

  8. Request to add Studying Students to Alma

    Hello,

    In preparation of Duke's move from 360 KB to Alma this upcoming summer, we are evaluating some of the databases tracked in 360 to make sure that they line up with electronic collections in Alma. We have been doing through the databases on the NA Gap spreadsheet that Ex Libris provided to us.

    Unfortunately I have not found a better or suitable place for some of the titles within these databases which is why we would like to request them to be added to Alma.

    Duke has the following collection in the 360 KB tracked and would like it…

Could Ex Libris please work with Docuseek to load this new collection, the Docuseek Complete Collection 4th Edition Upgrade, into the Alma CZ and other KBs? The end result should be a collection with robust MARC records and portfolios we can activate. This is a video collection, and it is important that you work with Docuseek to load full MARC records for the videos--don't just load a KBART, as that…
