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,

  2. Add a metadata correction layer for PCI

    Many times when we found wrong metadata in PCI and reported to Ex Libris for correction, it took them a long time to contact the data vendors to make the corrections. Sometimes they never can get response or correction from the vendors, and the wrong metadata stayed in PCI without any changes. The wrong metadata is really misleading and cannot generate the correct OpenURLs for users to reach the full text articles. I would suggest Ex Libris to build an internal metadata correction layer for the PCI data to improve its quality. With this layer, even the vendors don't correct…

    Hello,

    Following reviews and discussion with our Primo product colleagues, we will not move forward with this request.
    With the shift to CDI we will be addressing all relevant changes on CDI, but also for CDI we will not be currently creating a “metadata correction layer”.
    All metadata corrections are performed centrally by our Content Operations team.

    Thank you for your contribution.

  3. 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,

    At this point we will need to decline this request as Agrovoc can provide several formats though these do not include the MARC format which is required for us to ingest Authorities.

    We apologize for the inconvenience, but will keep this request in our backlog should we be able to ingest other formats in the future, or if Agrovoc provide the MARC format.
    If you become aware of a change in the available file formats from Agrovoc please let us know and we can reopen this request.

  8. Need up-to-date 'Westlaw Thomson Reuters' CZ Selective Package

    There is no up-to-date ‘Westlaw Thomson Reuters’ Selective Package in the Community Zone. This Westlaw database has had much flux over recent years, including name changes.
    Due to internal changes of where particular content is kept in the database, even in the most recent CZ Selective Packages many parser parameter links need to be updated.

  11. 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.

  13. 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. As of April 2017, CORE offers seamless access to 70,251,799 open access articles. CORE harvests, maintains, enriches and makes available metadata and full-text content (typically a PDF).

    Developed by the Knowledge Management Institute at the Open University, CORE came top in a recent list of top 21 freely available online journal and research databases for academics; https://www.scribendi.com/advice/freeonlinejournalandresearch_databases.en.html

    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.

  15. Classiques Sciences Sociales Free

    Classiques Sciences Sociales Free collection is composed of more than 4,300 portfolios. Most of the records are very poor: only the title, one author, and the eISBN. The publication date in 008/7-10 is usually incorrect.
    Full Marc records exist for these items and are available under certain conditions (for libraries) at http://classiques.uqac.ca/inter/telechargement_notices.php?lang=en
    Note also that Les Classiques des sciences sociales actually contain more than 6,500 free works http://classiques.uqac.ca . A general update of this collection would be welcome.

  16. 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

  17. Add "subscribe by email" and other ways to monitor CKB release notes

    It is crucial for us to monitor CKB release notes to ensure that collection activations are appropriately revised in response to changes. At present, the only way to monitor the notes is by RSS feed, which is cumbersome -- it is very easy to miss changes with only RSS feed updates. Please add other means of monitoring these changes, such as subscribing to the release notes by email.
