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:

  4. baltimore afro-american

    Please add CDI coverage for ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The Baltimore Afro-American (All Years) Collection ID: 614940000000000323. This collection currently covers 1893-2010.
    There is existing Link in record coverage for ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The Baltimore Afro-American (1893-1988) Collection ID: 614340000000000184, but it doesn't cover the full range of dates we are subscribed to and doesn't actually seem to be indexing any articles. For example, I cannot get this article to appear in Primo search results:
    Widgeon, P. (1980, Nov 22). Murphy father-son judge team is historic first for state. Afro-American (1893-) Retrieved from https://www.proquest.com/historical-newspapers/murphy-father-son-judge-team-is-historic-first/docview/532470120/se-2

  10. Add Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law from Oxford University Press

    We are purchasing the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law from Oxford (https://oxcon.ouplaw.com/home/MPECCOL), one of Ex Libris's established provider partners, but it is not in the CZ. Could Ex Libris please work with Oxford to load this resource into the CZ? The CZ already contains a related Max Planck collection from Oxford, Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law (collection ID 613790000000001626), so I'm hopeful you'll be able to load Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law as well.

  18. Request to add Library of Parliament (Canada) to Alma

    Hello,

    In preparation of Duke's move from 360 KB to Alma this upcoming summer, we are evaluating some of the databases tracked in 360 to make sure that they line up with electronic collections in Alma. We have been doing through the databases on the NA Gap spreadsheet that Ex Libris provided to us.

    Unfortunately I have not found a better or suitable place for some of the titles within these databases which is why we would like to request them to be added to Alma.

    Duke has the following collection in the 360 KB tracked and would like it…
