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:

  14. Elsevier hybrid Open Access journals

    There are several hybrid OA journals - meaning that only some articles are Open Access and most are behind a paywall - in the portfolio ELSEVIERSCIENCEDIRECTOPENACCESSJOURNALS-getFullTxt . Since these are not freely available cover-to-cover, it would be more appropriate to put these in a new service ELSEVIERSCIENCEDIRECTOPENACCESSJOURNALS-getSelectedFullTxt

    Attached is a list of several hybrid OA journals on the ScienceDirect platform.

    Last comment:
    Hi Dana,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

    It does indeed looks like we do not currently have any article-level records for the journal Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education & Society (ISSN: 1929-8692) in the Summon Index.

  16. Next Expected Update date for collections

    Similar to the "Last Full Update" and "Last Partial Update" dates for collections, it could cut down on the volume of cases about new individual titles if the collections that get updated on a regular schedule also had "Next Expected Update" date to display.

    Hello,

    Expected update frequency is not part of any standardized metadata from content providers.

    Furthermore, update frequency depends on the content being updated on the platform and due to the nature of the publishing industry, it cannot be committed to in advance. Even regularly updated collections may skip an update cycle because there's no new content added to the collection.

    As a result, adding expected update frequency for book collections or journal collections can be misleading as it is hypothetical and may create false expectations.

    Therefore, I am closing this idea as 'expected update' cannot be accurately added to collections to create a useful and reliable indication.

    Kind regards,

    Tamar Ganor

  17. Collection: Unglue.it open access books

    unglue.it provides free MARC records for its collection of open access ebooks (see https://unglue.it/libraries/)

    This would be useful both for discovery (complementing other open access resources) and as a collection for CZ (so we could choose to activate either specific titles or the whole collection.)

    (From previous conversations with them I'm sure they'd very much welcome working on this with Ex Libris.)

    Hello all,

    We have been in contact with Paratext directly, but due to re-licensing agreement limitations we cannot at this time include the Reference Universe content in our Discovery systems.
    We are leaving this door open in the event that Paratext will be able to re-license the content at a later stage, in collaboration with their direct providers.

    Many citations for them are already in CrossRef so users are aware of the content.
