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. Improve the metadata of Dalloz Bibliothèque in CZ and CDI

    • Dalloz Bibliothèque
    • Collection ID : 613680000000000037
    • CDI Collection ID (DB ID): O7M
    • Material type : books (currently : 2576)

    The quality of the metadata for Dalloz Bibliothèque in the CZ and CDI is extremely poor (sometimes only one title). Please, consider enriching the metadata with those coming from the SUDOC (more complete and of better quality). Enrichment could perhaps be based on the PPN (SUDOC identifier) that you have already injected into the CZ records?

    We will reach out to LexisNexis for discovery metadata, but please bear in mind that it will probably not be feasible because LexisNexis does not produce this kind of metadata.

  12. Naxos Music Library - U.S. CDI collections

    Some of the content in the CDI collections for Naxos Music Library, Naxos Music Library Jazz, and Naxos Music Library - World are not available in the United States due to copyright restrictions. OCLC has separate collections in WorldShare Manager for NML content that is available to U.S. subscribers. I am requesting that similar collections be added to CDI that contain only the records for content U.S. subscribers can access.

  15. CDI collection for Elsevier Open Access articles

    Could you please add a CDI database only collection with links in record for Elsevier open access articles?

    There is no longer an Elsevier open access knowledge base collection https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/574345-content/suggestions/43048611-add-elsevier-open-access-collection-to-alma-cz

    And I think this would work better as a CDI collection given how many OA articles there are in hybrid journals.

    For example, 76,000 archival articles were made open as the result of a large United States Library consortia agreement:
    https://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2022/03/16/retroactively-open-elsevier-backflips-for-nerl-agreement/

    And these OA articles should be more easily discoverable via a dedicated CDI link in record collection.

    Library of Latin Texts A [collection ID: 613790000000000926) and Library of Latin Texts B [collection ID: 613790000000000922) contain outdated links and have not been updated since 2021. Metadata for both was poorer quality than what was supplied by vendor.

    A customer-contributed collection (Univ. of Western Australia) for Library of Latin Texts (collection ID: 61665968760007861) results in errors for about 100 records upon activation.

    For enrichment we will need to sign an agreement with the provider, so it might take some time.

    Nonetheless, we will reach out to Brepols and ask for an updated title list for these two collections.

    Regarding the contributed collection, it is managed by the contributing library. Feel free to reach out directly to them in order to communicate the necessary changes eres-lib@uwa.edu.au.
