We welcome your ideas for new content (metadata) to add to the Knowledge Bases (KBs - Alma CZ, SFX, 360) and Discovery services (CDI - Central Discovery Index whose data supports Primo and Summon).


How to increase your idea's visibility and get more votes:
  1. Check if your idea has already been posted and vote for it before posting a new idea.
  2. Choose the right category: "New Provider" for content from a provider that has no available content in the KBs or CDI, or "Existing Provider" for content from a provider that already has content available in the KBs or CDI.
  3. Add a direct link to the provider/resource you suggest, and a contact person if possible.
  4. For enrichment requests add the relevant collection ID(s). 
  5. Make sure you mention any specific added value your idea has to the community such as language or supporting diversity.
  6. Did you find errors in an existing collection? please open a case.
  7. A new year has begun but no corresponding annual collection? post an idea in Idea Exchange, make sure to mention if it is an existing provider.


The categories for new content ideas are:
  1. Existing Provider - if your idea is for a new collection from a provider that already has content available in the KBs and CDI or enriching records for an existing collection, use this category. No voting is necessary, ideas for existing providers will be handled regardless of voting.
  2. New Providers - if your idea is for content from a provider that does not have any content available in the KBs and CDI, choose this category.
  3. Other - for non provider specific ideas

If you want to add an institutional repository, please open a case and follow the documentation here:

  9. Editorial Tirant lo Blanch

    Editorial Tirant lo Blanch (https://editorial.tirant.com/es) is one of the main Law content providers in Spanish. The majority of the academic institutions are their customer.

    They produced databases, journals and books, and host them in their platforms (called Tirant Online, Biblioteca Tirant and Nube de Lectura). It would be very interesting to be able to index their contents.

    Adding their resources in the CDI would be very beneficial for all academic institutions studying Spanish Law.

  12. Add Lamyline

    Lamyline
    https://www.lamyline.fr

    This is a duplicate and enriched idea from : https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/574345-content/suggestions/33007996-lamyline which has been closed in 2021.

    Access to the continuously updated Lamy publisher documentary collection: the official collection (national and EU official texts, treaties, private law case law, public law case law, European case law, administrative authorities), Lamy books and journals in French.
    Lamy is a French publisher that doesn't exist in the KB; however, the company is now part of Kluwer: I hope this still makes it a new publisher for you.
    Ideally, for Alma and CDI.

  14. "Architectural Institute of Japan Search System (日本建築学会論文等検索システム - 機関定額制)" for discovery

    "Architectural Institute of Japan Search System (日本建築学会論文等検索システム - 機関定額制)" is a database managed by Architectural Institute of Japan.
    It contains many publications published by Architectural Institute of Japan.
    Some of journals has been covered by existing databases like IRDB, J-STAGE but this database includes not only academic journals but also conference reports or any other type of contents, and they are not searchable on discovery.

    https://www.aij.or.jp/paper/search.html

    It would be helpful for researchers if Ex Libris discovery included this database as a search target.
