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:

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, the provider is unable to provide metadata for this collection.

    They will let us know once they are capable of sustainably sending us their metadata.

  8. Update Bloomsbury Education and Childhood Studies

    We activated the Education & Childhood Studies CZ collection but are waiting for the CZ collection to be updated to reflect the 2023 autumn update. We set our collection so that new portfolios are automatically updated but the collection doesn't seem to have been updated since 27/09/23. There are currently 189 titles in the collection, the latest creation date being 26/02/2023. My colleague has checked a few of the new titles just for the sake of completeness and although they are in the CZ they aren't in the Education & Childhood Studies collections as yet.

    We are expecting:

    Hello,

    According to Westlaw, Westlaw Precision is just an added functionality on top of Westlaw Edge. So, there wouldn’t be any additional content files.

    The provider suggested activating Westlaw Edge for the content.

    Kind regards,

    Hello,

    The provider responded that there are no associated ISBNs with the collections, so they cannot make it into a title list. 

    They suggested you should send feedback to T&F to address the discovery issue.

    As a result, we will have to keep it as a zero-title database.

  11. Add database for Skillsoft Percipio french titles

    Ex Libris recently added two new databases (AABQT & ANMXM) with English titles available in Skillsoft's Percipio based on content lists that we provided (original case 06845269). This was very helpful to us! We've also procured French titles in Percipio; could we please add these as another database so that our users can search them in Summon along with our other Percipio titles? I've attached the list of titles with permalinks.

    Hello,

    According to Skillsoft, They do not sell a "French" only collection for Percipio.

    They requested that if we create such a collection we will restrict the activation to Environment Canada only which we cannot accommodate.

    In this case I would suggest creating a local collection with the title list you have.

    Please reach out to me directly if further clarification is needed

    Hello,

    We are having issues with the feed from the provider, which contains selected Open Access titles as well as book chapter metadata instead of only title level metadata.

    This is tracked in the Known Issues page:

    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Content/Knowledge_Articles/Provider_Known_Issues/Ex_Libris_Content_Issues_In_Progress

    There is no timeline for resolving this, so we cannot update the collection.

    Hi,

    We have contacted Maruzen in request to add the missing content.

    The provider is not interested in sending us metadata for these collections.

    Therefore we will not add these to the Knowledge Bases, please maintain them locally.
