Open Textbook Catalog: Please use direct feed of MARC records from https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery
In the CZ there is an existing collection (613790000000001601) for the Open Textbook Catalog.
Compared to the MARC records available at https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery the CZ collection has fewer titles (651 vs 766 as of 07/13/2020).
Also the CZ bibliographic records are extremely brief and usually have nothing more than a title in the 245 field. The bib records from open.umn.edu are fuller with author, title, publisher, content and summary notes and subject headings.
This request is to ask Exlibris to use the publicly available MARC bib records from the open.umn.edu website to enhance the existing CZ collection.
Thank you for raising this request.
We will check if a signed agreement is required here in order to start the analysis and then will prioritize for future acquisition.

There has been discussion on the Alma list about activating the CDI collection for search as an alternative option.
For our library's needs I prefer a full-text collection with portfolios over CDI and ask that Ex Libris continue to pursue enrichment of the CZ full text collection.
The Marc records at https://open.umn.edu/opentextbooks/discovery are the most up-to-date and have the most titles (781 as of 08/06/2020).
