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. Making the peer reviewed icon more accurate

    Articles and journals are marked with the peer reviewed icon in Primo based on information extracted from Ulrichsweb (https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Ulrich%27s/Product_Documentation/Searching/Ulrichsweb%3A_Peer-Reviewed_Refereed_Journals_and_Academic_Scholarly_Journals).
    The Peer Review indicator can only be set at the journal level at the moment. If a journal is identified as peer reviewed, or refereed in Ulrichsweb, all articles from this journal will be shown with the peer reviewed icon in Primo.
    However, not all articles in such journals are peer reviewed, meaning the icon sends the wrong information to user, and that this label is not reliable. It can further cause users to lose confidence in the system.…

  3. Add AIATSIS thesauri to the CZ subject authority files

    As a cataloguer, I would like to see the AIATSIS thesauri made available in the Community Zone authority files for 6XX subject fields.

    BENEFITS

    • Make it easier for cataloguers to validate AIATSIS subject headings
    • Enable routine review and updates of AIATSIS subject headings through the Authority Control Task List
    • Enrich Primo searches for end users, using non-preferred terms (especially synonyms for people and language groups)
    • Promote AIATSIS thesauri to Australian libraries

    While specific libraries can import and manage AIATSIS subject headings as local authorities, I think this vocabulary should be made available in the CZ authority records, since it is…

    Hello all,

  5. start enrichment process for Hogrefe eBooks (Hogrefe eLibrary)

    ExLibris created an automation for updates that will run on a weekly basis and will check for any changes made to the title list by Hogrefe Verlag. However, the metadata are rudimentary. We are missing author or editor, place of publication and publisher in the metadata. This makes it difficult to find out the ebooks in Primo VE.

    Hence: could you please start an enrichment process with Hogrefe for their eLibrary eBooks titles?

    Hello,

    After feedback from the community, we have reopened this idea.

    The provider MARC will add authors, 300, better language and 008, Publisher.

    Please be advised that although some improvement is expected, it will not enrich the records to robust Bibliographic records that meets library standards.

    We will complete the enrichment by end of May 2024.

    Kind regards,

    Tamar

    Hello,

    After a meeting with Austlit it is clear there is more efforts required for preparing the file for adding it to CDI.

    We will have more updates during the coming months and probably have a more accurate timeline during Q3.

  10. Improve the metadata of Dalloz Bibliothèque in CZ and CDI

    • Dalloz Bibliothèque
    • Collection ID : 613680000000000037
    • CDI Collection ID (DB ID): O7M
    • Material type : books (currently : 2576)

    The quality of the metadata for Dalloz Bibliothèque in the CZ and CDI is extremely poor (sometimes only one title). Please, consider enriching the metadata with those coming from the SUDOC (more complete and of better quality). Enrichment could perhaps be based on the PPN (SUDOC identifier) that you have already injected into the CZ records?

  12. Add Thoth Open Access collection as a Community Zone

    This is a request to add the collection of Diamond OA publications in Thoth (http://www.thoth.pub/) as a Community Zone collection.

    Thoth contains a steadily growing collection of OA publications from scholar-led publishers such as punctum books, Open Book Publishers, meson press, mediastudies.press, and African Minds, and we have been working with UC Santa Barbara Library to make it more accessible to libraries worldwide.

    Creating a dedicated Community Zone would substantially increase access to these OA publishers.

  15. Separate publisher and aggregator collections to filter out unavailable preprints

    Publishers are increasingly adding preprints to their collections but aggregators do not add them until they have been fully "published". Because aggregators and publishers share collections on the CDI, it looks as if our aggregator links are broken in the catalogue. If aggregators and publishers provide different levels of access, can the collections be separated to reflect this?
    This is important because the preprints tend to be the latest publications and so are in relatively high demand.
