Content

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:

  1. 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.

    Hello,

    After reviewing the available metadata, it is best represented in CDI.

    A zero title database has been created in preparation for adding the CDI package

    ESPRESSO_TUTORIALS (dbid: EKDBI)

    We are planning to add the new CDI package by end of August 2024.

    Kind regards,

    Tamar

  3. Add WIT Press eLibrary

    Hello,

    Please consider contacting WIT Press in order to add the WIT Press eLibrary to the Alma CZ and CDI for indexing.

    The WIT Press eLibrary is a fully open access collection of scholarly content on sustainable engineering and environmental engineering.

    https://www.witpress.com/elibrary

    It contains journals and transactions that are all registered with CrossRef (meaning that they have DOIs).

    The transactions are monograph series (have both ISSNs and ISBNs).

    Thanks for considering.

    If you do add this collection, please also incorporate the open access MARC notation for the bibliographic records if you add them to the Alma CZ:

    Hello,

    Can you please confirm what is the database name?

    It currently has one name in Chinese, and two more names in English.

    Should it be called by all three names?

    Thanks,
