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.

    "Review" would be more accurate for items that are part of the Editor's Choice section of each issue of the Science Signaling journal. 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,

    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.

    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.

  12. OECD iLibrary going Open Access

    I sent this to the Content email listserv. And reply from Elizabeth York.

    Thanks for consideration.

    Hi Denise,

    Thanks for reminding us of OECD's switch to OA! If OECD wants to provide entirely new collection files to KB vendors, they could, and Ex Libris could load them, but based on the information provided by OECD, I am not sure whether that's necessary; it sounds like the content is not changing, but it is switching to OA. Assuming all the OECD content continues to be available at the same links, we could possibly simply remove our authentication methods (service-level proxying, in…

    Hi,

    Any issues with updates of existing collections should be addressed via a support ticket in Salesforce.


    There is a collection called "Chronicle of Higher Education" (DBID: DBV) and this request should be regarding adding a new portfolio to an existing collection.


    I apologize for this inconvenience, but opening a case would be the best way to investigate the delayed update to this collection.

    Hello,

    We were recently informed that Hathi trust halted the development of their MARC feed for Ex Libris until further notice. So unfortunately, we will not be able to improve the records in CDI.

    This has been added to the "content issues in progress" Knowledge Article:

  16. 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.

    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 provider is not interested in sending us metadata for these collections.
