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.
For more information please review our FAQ and guidelines. Thank you.

    Hello all,

  2. Academic e-books from Norwegian publishers via Allvit / Bokbasen

    The Norwegian academic publishers will be making a large selection of their academic books and publications available as e-books in 2019. This is part of a national effort to strengthen the position of Norwegian as a language used in academic and research publications as well as in bachelor- and master-level studies in Norway.

    Bokbasen (https://www.bokbasen.no) is developing an online solution for purchasing and administration of library licenses for these academic e-books from Norwegian publishers, and we would like to have this collection included in Alma ‘s Community Zone.

  3. Please quit using print records (or old combo print-electronic records) in the CZ to represent serials in electronic format

    My understanding is that the CZ records are to represent electronic formats, but most of them seem to be records for the corresponding print title. ISSNs are either wrong (print, where it should be electronic) or the record has both the print and electronic ISSNs in the $a subfield. The OCLC# is usually that for the print record.

    All of this causes problems with matching and dedupping when attempting to import and/or order actual print copies.

    Please go to electronic only records for the CZ.

  6. Provide a seamless, timely and automatic workflow for ingesting Jisc KB+ data into the Alma Community Zone.

    We subscribe to the majority of our eresource content via nationally negotiated eresource deals (Jisc Collections, WHEEL). Jisc’s KB+ product (https://www.kbplus.ac.uk/kbplus/) maintains a knowledgebase which includes comprehensive title and package information for these EResources.

    We would like ExLibris to harvest the KB+ title lists from the KB+ publicly accessible export page (https://www.kbplus.ac.uk/kbplus/publicExport) on a daily basis to ensure that all new and updated title lists in the Alma Community Zone are identical to the title lists in KB+.

    We would like ExLibris to identify the KB+ title lists in the Alma Community Zone with a KB+…

    Hello all,

    We are very happy to announce that we have released a game-changing API that we worked very closely with KB+ to develop. As part of this API the Ex Libris SFX and Alma products will have an automated process that identifies a new collection by KB+ and automatically creates this new collection in the system, as well as setting up the ongoing updates.
    This development took us several months and extensive collaboration with the KB+ team. We have completed testing and plan to monitor this process over the coming months when new collections become available, with an expected turnaround of up to two weeks.

    Best,
    Rael

  7. Brepolis Databases

    Brepols Publishers is an international academic publisher of works in the humanities. The focus of its publications lies in "source-works" from Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. By this is meant critical editions of original texts and documents in their original language, reference works such as encyclopaedias, handbooks and bibliographies, as well as monograph studies and cutting-edge research.

    The following Brepolis databases (online encyclopedias, handbooks and bibliographies) would significantly enrich the indexes if there were added to Primo Central and Summon:
    - L'Année Philologique
    - Bibliography of British and Irish History
    - International Medieval Bibliography
    - Bibliographie…

  9. CZ Collection Request: CARE-CRUI SpringerLink Journals

    The CARE-CRUI italian consortium has agreed with Springer a version of the "SpringerLink Journals" package tailored for the italian universities participating at the consortium.

    This consortium (http://www.crui-risorselettroniche.it/) is the master reference for all the italian universities.

    So the italian Alma customers are in the need of a tailored package in the CZ too: say a "CARE-CRUI SpringerLink Journals" package, similar to other localized packages yet present on the CZ ( i.e. "OhioLINK SpringerLink Journals" package).

    Please note that at now such package does not exist: all the springerlink journals packages available in the CZ have different content than…
