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.

  1. Improve indexing of HAL in CDI

    Hal is one of the most important French open archive. The database offers open access documents directly from the platform and references to documents for which the full text is not available.
    In CDI two collections allow to activate the search on this database.
    - Hyper Article en Ligne (HAL) (Open Access) (ID CDI VOOES) which covers only open access records.
    - Hyper Article Online (HAL) (CDI ID 1XC) which covers all the records in HAL.
    Both of the HAL collections are link-in-records databases
    The problem is that it shows as unavailable the records to which we could have gained…

  2. Añadir los paquetes "VLEX Global" y "Vlex Premiun" en la CZ de ALMA

    En la CZ de Alma hay dos bases de datos del editor Vlex: Vlex Books y Vlex Journals. Sin embargo este editor no comercializa de esta manera sus paquetes. Es posible suscribir Vlex Global (donde hay libros y revistas) y Vlex Premiun (donde también hay libros y revistas). Si un cliente suscribe Vlex Global debe dar de alta una colección local de libros, otra local de revistas y no seleccionar títulos del paquete de revistas y del paquete de libros que hay en la CZ.

    ¿Sería posible que se reunieran con el editor para que las colecciones de Vlex que…

  4. Target / collection for Science (AAAS)

    In the SFX KB the magazine "Science" (AAAS) is a portfolio in the "Miscellaneous E-journals" target in SFX.

    Please consider:

    a) creating a separate target for Science magazine and
    b) improving the linking level (currently journal-level)

    In addition, also consider adding a PCI collection.

  5. All Oxford University Press eBook titles

    There is no All Oxford University Press eBooks collection.

    It would be very helpful to create this collection so that libraries developing collections via EBA programs can differentiate between subscribed-to vs. perpetually-owned content without having to individually create and manage local collections.

  7. Need two CZ Selective Packages for 'Westlaw Thomson Reuters' database

    It would be useful to have two Selective Packages for the ‘Westlaw Thomson Reuters’ database. One Selective package for ‘International’ content, and another for ‘US’ content.

    At our library we provide a link to each of the two ‘sides’ of the database, as Article Title searches on each ‘side’ produce different results, depending on which ‘side’ the article is found. If an article is in the ‘US’ side, it can be found by an Article Title search on the ‘US’ side, but not on the ‘International’ side (and vice versa). (Journal Title searches allow the journal to be found the…

  10. Add books from Proquest's Oasis database to PCI

    We are recommending Primo to our users as the route to suggest new books for purchase. However, PCI is not great for books, unless they are part of a publisher's e-book collection.

    Proquest have their own database of books in print via Oasis - this would be a fantastic addition to PCI and would greatly facilitate purchase requests or resource sharing requests via Primo.

  11. E-Journal target for SFX: JSTOR_SUSTAINABILITY_JOURNALS

    We are proposing to create a new target for the JSTOR-collection "Sustainability Journals" with the name: JSTORSUSTAINABILITYJOURNALS

    The SFX target JSTORSUSTAINABILITYJOURNALSANDRESEARCH_REPORTS (4577 portfolios) exists already but cannot be activated when the journals-only collection is available at an institution.
    Therefore its necessary to have an Journals-only target in SFX as well.

    The title list with its 111 titles can be found here:

  12. Portico Post-cancellation/perpetual access

    In 360 KB and SFX (maybe in Alma as well) there exist several databases for Portico - triggered Content.

    But Portico has a supplementary offer that is called "Portico - Post-cancellation/perpetual access". This offer contains journals from various publishers where the post-cancellation access is partly not through the platform of the publisher but through Portico.

    You find some information about this offer here: https://www.portico.org/for-participants/#pca

    The title lists for this database can be found here: https://www.portico.org/coverage/titles/ - it includes e-journals and e-books.

    I ask you to add this database to SFX and 360 KB (and Alma if it doesn't exist there…

  20. Add the Bridget Williams Books collections to Primo Central Index

    As a student and researcher of New Zealand materials I would like the books published by Bridget Williams Books to be indexed in Primo Central Index.

    Background: Currently the content of these collections is not discoverable in Primo. This makes it harder to discover key New Zealand content and impacts the efficiency of my study and research capabilities.
