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:

    Updating existing collections need to go through opening a support case so unfortunately I cannot update the collection without going through SalesForce.

  3. Indexing the content directly

    Please consider indexing the content for the title, American Journal of Play. As stated by ex libris in my recent case, "we do not have any providers that can send us records for the 2008 -2011 content of American journal of play." "I checked in CDI and the majority of our records for American journal of play come from ProQuest. ProQuest only has full text and citation coverage starting in 2012. Gale also indexes content from this journal, but they only start indexing content in 2014. With content on EBSCO, we have to rely on alternative coverage, because EBSCO does…

  5. Open Library of Humanities

    It seems Open Library of Humanities, https://www.openlibhums.org/, hasn't updated their title list in the 360 KB since 2020 (last full update was in 2015) (DB code ABAGC).

    Zygon is now part of Open Library of Humanities and we would like to be able to connect our users to it via Summon/360.

    I sent a message to Andy Byers via the OLH contact form, https://www.openlibhums.org/contact/, but also wanted to ask you all to follow up with them.

    Thank you!

    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

    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.

    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.

This list contains 107 newspapers from CA and 31 from NV. Completing the coverage of NV and CA newspapers in the CZ collection will increase access and usage of these publications for these two states.

    "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?
