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,

    We have reached out again to Atekst have been informed that they do not share data with 3rd parties.
    Unfortunately this means that we cannot pursue this content for ingestion within our Indexes.

    Should there be any change in the future we would be more than happy to reassess and reconsider the ingestion of this content.

    Thank you,
    Rael

  2. Internet Archive

    The Internet Archive https://archive.org is a 501(c)(3) non-profit library. Founded in 1996, their mission is to provide Universal Access to All Knowledge. They collect published works and make them available in digital formats.

    Nowadays, the Archive contains 11 million books and texts, 4 million audio recordings (including 160,000 live concerts), 3 million videos (including 1 million Television News programs), and 1 million images. Books published prior to 1923 are available for download, and hundreds of thousands of modern books can be borrowed (free of charge).

    Certainly a good candidate for Primo Central and Summon indexes...

    Hello all,

    Thank you for contributing this idea.
    Following numerous attempts to reach out to the provider we have not been able to establish contact and therefore must decline this request.
    Should the provider be interested in establishing contact with us, we would be happy to revisit this request.

    Hello all,

    Following extensive review and analysis, we have decided to pursue adding institutional repository content via CORE and Unpaywall.
    Therefore, at this time, we will not be ingesting BASE content.

  5. Add to PCI and Knowledgebase: Ebsco Research Databases

    Please consider adding all Ebsco research databases to the PCI / Knowledge base.

    See: https://www.ebsco.com/products/research-databases#institution=academic

    I'd appreciate if you could open communications with Ebsco to see if their content could be made available in the PCI.

    As you are aware, unfortunately we do not currently have an agreement in place to ingest EBSCO content directly into our Discovery systems.

    I would like to release these votes for your convenience, while emphasizing that we are always hopeful that an agreement will be reached and we will be able to make this content available directly in the future.

    That said, please note that we are aware that this content may also be available via CCH Online.

  7. Change labels for Hathi Trust Records that are restricted to search only

    Currently, Hathi Trust records appear to have a full-text available label whether they are available in full-text or they are restricted to search only. In Summon restricted items in Hathi Trust are labeled citation online in order to not give the user a false expectation that the item would be available. I would like Primo to treat Hathi Trust records the same way.

    Hello all,

    Thank you for raising this topic.
    This type of request is best addressed via a Support Case, so I am “declining” it here.
    That said, we are currently working on renewing this feed from the provider, and based on the indications they send, we will be able to create a more accurate representation of the availability.
    This is a lengthy process, but we are aware of this and working to remedy the availability accuracy here.

    Thank you!

  9. core

    CORE (https://core.ac.uk/) aims to aggregate all open access research outputs from repositories and journals worldwide and make these available to the public through a set of services including search, API and analytical tools.

    Hello all,

    We are very interested in including the CORE content in our products.
    Following extensive analysis and assessments of the complexity for both Ex Libris and CORE to provide and display this content on the necessary level of quality and currency, we are required at this point to delay the project.

    Please note that we are currently working on the ingestion of Unpaywall for 2019.

    We will be closing this request to release the votes, but the inclusion of CORE is on our roadmap, and there is therefore no need to submit an additional Idea.

  11. add patent information to Primo Central

    At its core the Primo Central Index content is all about scientific publications. But since the integration of the ProQuest resources the resource type scope became much wider
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/@api/deki/files/42859/PrimoCentralIndexResourceTypes.pdf
    Patents applications are published by the national patent offices and they are publicly available. For a science and technology audience it would be very beneficial to search patent publications and literature publications in one index. First choice would be the publications from patent offices. Second best would be data from commercial aggregators.

    Hello all,

    Our goal in providing content for our customers is to ensure that it is as optimally searchable and discoverable as possible.
    The search requirements for patents are not the same as the standard academic search parameters and fields, nor are the display needs and usage methods.
    In order to support these, an optimized Primo user interface would be required, as was developed for newspapers.
    Therefore we believe that ingesting patent content at this time would not promote better discoverability or usage.

    Such an Idea could be suggested on the Primo Idea Exchange Forum, and would need to be assessed accordingly.

    Rael

    declined  ·  Dana Sharvit responded

    The suggested idea is less about content and more about 360Link functionality.
    As such the suggested idea will not be handled as part of the content forum but the enhancement request was communicated to 360Lnk Product manager who will consider the enhancement.

  13. Missing Target: OTTO_SAGNER_DIGITAL_OPEN_ACCESS_BOOKS

  16. 360Link usage stats for un-normalized journal titles and CJK (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) titles

    In current specification of 360Link usage stats, admin can not get detailed journal usage stats for un-normalized journal titles from "By Title and ISSN (Journal Title)".
    Especially, admins in Japan (probably Korea and China are the same),are unsatisfied with that they can not get the usage of titles they registered in Library Specific Holdings and CJK(Chinese, Japanese and Korean) titles.
    I hope it would be improved.

    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.

  20. Change "View record in ProQuest (subscribers only)" to "View resource in ProQuest (subscribers only)"

    If you go to the record:

    https://clicsearch.csp.edu/permalink/f/1b4bdkg/TN_proquest304849128 (and sign in with username and password)

    You will see this:

    https://www.screencast.com/t/bLy84ltC

    I am confused why it says "View record in ProQuest (subscribers only)" when clicking on this link does not bring a person primarily to a record, but to a full-text item or resource.

    I was told the text can't be changed in a Primo Code Table, or a Normalization rule set, because Primo Central records are normalized in the Primo Central back office, and cannot be edited.

    Could you please do this? It seems like it would be a very easy…
