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. Add Homosaurus to Alma Authority Vocabularies

    We would like to suggest adding Homosaurus, an international LGBTQ+ linked data vocabulary to the authority vocabularies in the resource management configuration. The vocabulary is available at https://homosaurus.org/

    Homosaurus has received a lot of traction in the past few years as alternative to LCSH for describing resources about the LGBTQ+ community. We add the terms at present in a 650 _7 $a heading $2 homoit.

    Adding Homosaurus to the authority vocabularies would help greatly in on-going authority control, rather than managing locally.

    Hello, 


    As you know, Kanopy is now owned by OverDrive. We are currently working with OverDrive and discussing the legal and technical possibilities of ingesting their content, including a conversation about Kanopy. 

    We expect this to be a lengthy process, but can report that it is in progress.

  9. 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…

  16. Editorial Tirant lo Blanch

    Editorial Tirant lo Blanch (https://editorial.tirant.com/es) is one of the main Law content providers in Spanish. The majority of the academic institutions are their customer.

    They produced databases, journals and books, and host them in their platforms (called Tirant Online, Biblioteca Tirant and Nube de Lectura). It would be very interesting to be able to index their contents.

    Adding their resources in the CDI would be very beneficial for all academic institutions studying Spanish Law.

  18. Add Project MUSE ALL ebook collection to Community Zone

    The Alma Community Zone knowledge base doesn't include a collection for all Project MUSE ebooks regardless of package/year (nearly 50,000 titles).

    It's available as a KBART file on the MUSE website and I believe it's regularly updated: https://muse.jhu.edu/cgi-bin/build_kbart_file.cgi?type=book&collectionID=all

    Could you please add this to the CZ?

    Thank you.
