Content

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.

  1. Add a new collection in ALMA CZ for PROQUEST DISSERTATIONS AND THESES (PDTG)

    Add a new collection in ALMA CZ for PROQUEST DISSERTATIONS AND THESES (PDTG)
    Content should be accessed at theses title level as in ebooks collections.
    In ALMA CZ there is a collection titled "ProQuest Nursing Dissertations" with 15164 portfolios. We would like a similar collection for all ProQuest theses and dissertations.

    Hello,

    The ProQuest Dissertations & Theses collection is already available in the Alma CZ and supported as an aggregator package.
    A title list is not available to enable the creation of portfolios, but the linking is fully supported via an OpenURL method ensuring access to the relevant full text content.

  2. Create an Ebook Central Academic Complete specific to North America

    Currently the Ebook Central Academic Complete collection contains contains all titles in the collection regardless of territory restrictions set by the publishers. There are 318 titles which cannot be used in the United States. This is a lot of editing for libraries in the US with this collection. Some other geographic areas have their own collections. Create one for North America or the United States, depending on the geographic restrictions by publishers. If Canada and the United States of America have different restrictions, please separate.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your contribution!

    Currently the ProQuest EBook Central offerings do not include a North America specific collection that we can represent in the Alma CZ.
    We suggest that you consider utilizing the Upload Electronic Holdings feature in Alma which will automatically manage and maintain all of your Ebook Central holdings based on your acquisitions directly from ProQuest including representation of territorial rights. This will ensure that you are automatically activating only the titles available for your institution, for all of your Ebook Central content.

    For more information on this see our Knowledge Center documentation. Search for “Upload Electronic Holdings from ProQuest Ebook Central” under the Alma product.

    We would also like to kindly remind that any requests for ProQuest content do not need to go through the Idea Exchange platform. You can simply submit a Support Case for these requests.

  3. Factiva (separate electronic collections for different subscription products)

    I would like separate electronic collections in the Community Zone for Factiva, specific to the academic subscription product and non-academic subscription products.

    We have an academic subscription to Factiva and have activated the Electronic Collection 'Factiva' in the Community Zone. When you follow the links to full text in many of the portfolio records, you get a message saying 'No search results. This may be due to content restrictions on your academic account'. I believe this is because this single electronic collection contains records relating to content that is available to subscribers of the academic product, but also records relating…

    Hello all,

    Thank you for this suggestion!
    We have looked into this request and also discussed the matter with Factiva and ProQuest. We ingest the Factiva content through our ProQuest feed.

    Factiva cannot produce individual title lists and therefore we will leave the collection as is.

    That said, we are in touch with Factiva and are hoping to see improvements.

  4. Ebsco e-books (i.e. Noordhoff)

    Please add (enriched and basic) data of the e-books on Ebsco e-books.
    especially the titles of the dutch publisher Noordhoff. The books are available on Ebsco e-books.
    The Publisher wants to share data.

    Hello,

    Our analysis indicates that EBSCO does not offer a separate collection of eBooks for titles published by Noordhoff. This prevents us from being able to create such a separate collection in our systems, as we strive to remain consistent with the providers’ offerings.
    That said, all of EBSCO’s eBook offerings are available in the database eBooks on EBSCOhost, which is updated regularly. Any Noordhoff titles available via EBSCO are included in this collection. If there are particular titles they are missing, we can follow up with the provider to see if they are available and should be added. This can be addressed via a Support Case.

    Thank you,
    Rael

  5. Could you please add the De Gruyter Open Access ebook collection to the Community Zone

  7. Add Sage Premier 2018 and Sage Deep Backfile Upgrade 2018 packages

    Please add these packages ASAP. We'd like to see these new title packages at the beginning of a new calendar year. As it is, we either need to take the time to create a local package or we leave our users without accurate holding info. This is not the time-saving we're supposed to realize with the Alma CZ.

  8. Periodicals Archive Online

    ProQuest's Periodicals Archive Online has some rich metadata for journal articles that would be a valuable addition to the PCI.

    For example:
    Dahl, R.A. 1957, "The Concept of Power", Behavioral science, vol. 2, no. 3, pp. 201

    There is no metadata present in the PCI but Proquest have full details (Proquest document ID - 1301269515) and would enhance our use of this resource if it existed in Primo.

  10. Add new Heinonline Databases/Targets

    Dear support,

    we would like to have access to the next Heinonline databases:
    -Criminal Justice in America
    -International Law Association Reports
    -Revised Statutes of Canada
    -Statutes of the Realm Trends in Law Library
    Those databases/targets are not created; it would be good to create them.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for your contribution!

    We are already in works with our ProQuest colleagues to support this content in the optimal manner.
    There is no need to submit requests on the Idea Exchange for ProQuest content, as a Support Case would suffice.

  13. Naxos Music Library to SFX/Alma link resolver KB

    Naxos Music Library

    www.naxosmusiclibrary.com - Naxos is a prominent producer of classical music recordings. The online service (Naxos Music Library) offers the complete Naxos and Marco Polo catalogues, plus thousands of titles from other labels, including Chandos, BIS, Hungaroton, Hanssler, Bridge, First Edition, CPO, Coro, and Wergo.

    It would be great to add this database into SFX CKB/Alma. Many libraries with discovery services are purchasing this database, but if wish to link over their proxies it requires to link over a link resolvers.

  14. Add 2018 Community Zone collection for ProQuest Arts Premium, SciTech Premium and Social Science Premium collections

    We have renewed our subscriptions to the following three collections:

    ProQuest Arts Premium
    ProQuest SciTech Premium
    Social Science Premium

    However, when we look in the Community Zone for suitable collections, the most recent ones are from 2016. In this time, the number of titles in these packages have grown significantly and now the CZ collections fall short by 800 titles for Arts Premiums and thousands 4000 titles for both SciTech and Social Science Premium. It is to large a task to put these remaining titles into these collections manually.

    I would request that you create new 2018 Community Zone collections…

  15. Flag PCI/CDI Content That Appears on the Beall's List as "Potentially Predatory"

    We have noticed that certain content in the PCI/CDI overlaps with content listed on the Beall's List of Predatory Journals and Publishers (https://beallslist.net/). For example, all journals by Iris Publishers and Crimson Publishers that are indexed via CrossRef are indexed in the ALL CrossRef Collections and Rest of CrossRef collections not specified. However, discovering this information on our own is very time-consuming. Could Ex Libris systematically flag PCI/CDI content that appears on the Beall's List as "potentially predatory" so that institutions could more easily decide if they would like to include this content in their Primo instances?

  17. Why vote on content enhancements?

    Why vote on content enhancement requests? ExLibris should automatically update verified content in the knowledgebase. Considering how much libraries spend on electronic resources, maintaining the knowledgebase should be a high priority. Serials Solutions does this very well.

    Hello all,

    There are many considerations for content to be added, and one major factor is the impact we can provide for our community when adding a new resource.
    This is the purpose of the voting system which exposes to us the significance and importance of specific content.
    Of course we work closely with many providers with whom we maintain a dialog to ensure that the content is added in a timely manner. Providers also request that we add content, and we comply as well.

    Best,
    Rael
