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:

  2. Add History of Religiosity in Latin America Online (Brill)

    Please add this new Brill collection to the 360 KB. It contains 3,000+ monographs and almost 600 periodicals. Languages: primarily Spanish but also Portuguese. Some Latin, English, French, and Italian

    https://primarysources.brillonline.com/browse/history-of-religiosity-in-latin-america

    "Until recently it was impossible for sociologists, anthropologists, historians of attitudes and social psychologists to develop the study of religion in modern Latin America into a field of teaching and research. The documents pertaining to the colonial period are, of course, preserved and often well edited. But the publications of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that deal with local devotions and syncretist rituals, religious iconography and poetry, and the…

    Hello,

    This collection is planned to be added by end of June 2024.

    It is part of a bigger project for Brill collections, that require additional time for analysis and testing.

    I apologize for the delay in adding this collection.

    Kind regards,

    Tamar

  6. Add target specifically for EBSCO Environment - Core coverage only

    There is only 1 target for this database in SFX KB ( EBSCOHOSTENVIRONMENTCOMPLETE ) and it includes titles with both "Core" and "Priority" coverage. "Core" coverage refers to sources which are indexed and abstracted in their entirety (i.e. cover to cover), while "Priority" coverage refers to sources which include only those articles which are relevant to the field."

    Can you create a new target that includes only the "Core" titles with complete coverage? Or remove the "Priority" titles from the existing target? I have attached a title list with the Core/Priority category in the first column. We don't…

  7. Elgar AI and Disruptive Technology Subject Specific Collection needed in ALMA

    Dalhouse University has recently added some ebook collections from Elgar. One of them, "AI and Disruptive Technology Subject Specific Collection", does not look to have any options in the Community zone to activate in ALMA. Could this collection be added to ALMA, so we could activate it? There are 106 titles in this service, and there are currently no options available for adding it. Elgar has numerous collections in the system already, so one would hope this could be added quickly. Thanks, André Richard

  14. Add Oxford Handbooks 2024 collections to Alma CZ

    Could you please add Oxford Handbooks 2024 collections to the Alma CZ? Oxford is an established provider-partner of Ex Libris, and they offer yearly Oxford handbooks collections in a variety of subject areas. We have purchased the Oxford Handbooks 2024 Law collection, so that's the one we specifically want, but as long as Ex Libris is working on this, it would be good if all the subject collections could be loaded. These should be Alma CZ collections with portfolios and bib records. There are many Oxford Handbooks subject collections in the CZ for previous years, so we think it should…
