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?

    • Provide a seamless, timely and automatic workflow for ingesting Jisc KB+ data into the Alma Community Zone.

      We subscribe to the majority of our eresource content via nationally negotiated eresource deals (Jisc Collections, WHEEL). Jisc’s KB+ product (https://www.kbplus.ac.uk/kbplus/) maintains a knowledgebase which includes comprehensive title and package information for these EResources.

      We would like ExLibris to harvest the KB+ title lists from the KB+ publicly accessible export page (https://www.kbplus.ac.uk/kbplus/publicExport) on a daily basis to ensure that all new and updated title lists in the Alma Community Zone are identical to the title lists in KB+.

      We would like ExLibris to identify the KB+ title lists in the Alma Community Zone with a KB+…

        • 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…

                    • Periodicals Archive Online

                      ProQuest's Periodicals Archive Online has some rich metadata for journal articles that would be a valuable addition to the PCI.

                      For example:
                      Dahl, R.A. 1957, "The Concept of Power", Behavioral science, vol. 2, no. 3, pp. 201

                      There is no metadata present in the PCI but Proquest have full details (Proquest document ID - 1301269515) and would enhance our use of this resource if it existed in Primo.

                        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.

                                The titles in the attachment are open access titles of publisher Casalini which should therefore have an appropriate target attached to them. May I kindly ask you to create a target named " CASALINI_TORROSSA_OPENACCESS" and attach it to the titles in the attachment?

                                        • E-Book Target for SFX. Several publishers via Preselect

                                          We are missing the SFX-Target for the e-book packages for the scholars-e-library from the publisher UTB https://www.utb.de/bibliotheken/. Although there is a target in SFX for another product from UTB utb-studi-e-book the portfolios from the scholars-e-library are missing in SFX.
                                          The publisher eventually informed us that they are not responsible for the delivery of metadata for this package and referred us to the service platform Preselect http://www.preselect.com/en. Preselect offers also an bunch of other packages from 36 publisher. The half of these affects licence contracts of our libraries which have also no target in SFX.
                                          Please add all these…
