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:

    Hello,

    We have previously discussed this collection with the provider, but there is currently no available title list that can be used to ingest in our Delivery products.
    At this time we will close this request, but should a title list become available we can reconsider this request.

    Best,

  3. MOOC, Open Courses and Open Coursewares

    As helpful to newbies on curtain subject as other results already included in Summon Index.

    Index the resourses from Coursera, edX, HarvardX, or any MOOC platform around the world. As well as OCWs at MIT, etc.

    Many popular courses are hosted on multiple platforms, so they need to be generalized by name and teachers, like what EJP does for journals, I suppose.

  4. Target/Collection: University of Alberta Libraries OJS Journal Collection

    The University of Alberta Library publishes a high quality collection of over 40 open access journals, many of whom have been publishing for over a decade https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/. These titles provide globally relevant, peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary content with particular strengths in Education and Social Sciences. Improved access to these resources will benefit researchers and students world-wide. Library publishers are important partners in knowledge creation and discovery, and we would like to work with Ex Libris to include important collections like these in their discovery environments.

    Hello,

    There are three Swank collections in the Knowledgebases:

    SWANK_DIGITAL_CAMPUS_TOP_1000_VIDEOS
    SWANK_DIGITAL_CAMPUS_TOP_1500_COLLECTION
    SWANK_DIGITAL_CAMPUS_TOP_500_VIDEOS

    However, it is not possible for Swank to send metadata for discovery as their agreements do not allow sharing that level of metadata.

  8. Add "RVM - le Répertoire de vedettes-matière" to Alma CZ

    We suggest the addition of University Laval's RVM subject authorities to the Alma CZ:

    https://rvmweb.bibl.ulaval.ca/rvmweb/contenu/contenu.do?chemin=/a-propos

    We are a large bilingual (English-French) academic library, with more than 35% of our collection consisting of French materials. We create French cataloguing records, including French subject headings, for all titles in French that we hold.

    Alma currently provides access to over 50 authorities in several languages, unfortunately RVM is not one of them. Consequently, our cataloguing process for French materials is much slower than the process for materials in other languages as we need to consult RVM website every time when searching for French…

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, Ex Libris will not be able to include RVM in Alma CZ due to contractual disagreements which cannot be resolved.

    RVM is available for local management for subscribing institutions.

    Hello,

    Some providers cannot send us granular metadata for book chapters and contents.

    If you have a specific provider in mind, please post a new idea.

  10. 360Link usage stats for un-normalized journal titles and CJK (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) titles

    In current specification of 360Link usage stats, admin can not get detailed journal usage stats for un-normalized journal titles from "By Title and ISSN (Journal Title)".
    Especially, admins in Japan (probably Korea and China are the same),are unsatisfied with that they can not get the usage of titles they registered in Library Specific Holdings and CJK(Chinese, Japanese and Korean) titles.
    I hope it would be improved.

  11. Add Odilo Library to the Summon Index.

    Add the digital library platform Odilo to collections indexed in Summon. It is used by many universities to offer their e-publications (i.e. https://uv.odilotk.es )
    We have done the same suggestion to Odilo staff and they recommended that Summon use Odilo API to get and update the content.

Besides this, MyCite provides citation and bibliometric reports on Malaysian researchers, journals and institutions based only on the contents within MyCite. URL: http://www.mycite.my
