Content

Your feedback matters to us. Help us to extend our discovery indexes, KnowledgeBases and Community Zone by telling us what collections and data you’d like to see us add, using the message areas below. You can also support something already posted.
If you are suggesting new content for Discovery that is not yet in the Knowledgebase you do not need to submit two entries (one for Discovery and one for Knowledgebase)
Specifically you can suggest:
• New collections for Discovery (Primo Central and Summon)
• New collections for the Knowledgebase (Alma CZ, SFX KB and 360 KB)
• New authority files to be added to the Community Zone
• Enrichment of Community Zone bibliographic records for certain collections

We would love to be able to respond to every idea that is submitted, but this is not feasible. We are, however, committed to responding to the most popular ideas—those that have received the most points.
For more information please review our FAQ and guidelines. Thank you.

How can we improve Content?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Academic e-books from Norwegian publishers via Allvit / Bokbasen

    The Norwegian academic publishers will be making a large selection of their academic books and publications available as e-books in 2019. This is part of a national effort to strengthen the position of Norwegian as a language used in academic and research publications as well as in bachelor- and master-level studies in Norway.

    Bokbasen (https://www.bokbasen.no) is developing an online solution for purchasing and administration of library licenses for these academic e-books from Norwegian publishers, and we would like to have this collection included in Alma ‘s Community Zone.

    Hello all,

    We have been in touch with the provider, Bokbasen, and are currently discussing how best to represent their content in our Delivery systems.
    We are therefore still in preliminary talks, but the provider is receptive.

    Best,
    Rael

  2. Atekst (http://www.retriever-info.com/no/) for Discovery

    Hello,

    This content was also raised as part of the NERS voting cycle and is currently under review.
    Based on past responsiveness from this provider, we will reach out again in the hopes of establishing a working agreement, in 2019.

    Thank you,

  3. Add books from Proquest's Oasis database to PCI

    We are recommending Primo to our users as the route to suggest new books for purchase. However, PCI is not great for books, unless they are part of a publisher's e-book collection.

    Proquest have their own database of books in print via Oasis - this would be a fantastic addition to PCI and would greatly facilitate purchase requests or resource sharing requests via Primo.

  4. Springer Nature Open Access Community Zone Electronic Collection

    This is a request to add a single free/open access collection for all Springer Nature free/open access journals. Currently there are 4 community zone collections in Alma with many overlaps:

    SpringerOpen Free - (CKB)613170000000000044

    BioMed Central open Access - (CKB)611000000000000500

    Bacon Springer Nature Global Open Access - (CKB)613780000000000900
    Springer Nature Oa Journals - (CKB)614910000000000075

    We’d like the addition of one single consolidated collection because having the above 4 collections is unnecessarily confusing for students and staff as they currently encounter so many electronic collections for the same journal/article even when different community zone electronic collection links in Primo end up…

  5. E-Journal target for SFX: JSTOR_SUSTAINABILITY_JOURNALS

    We are proposing to create a new target for the JSTOR-collection "Sustainability Journals" with the name: JSTOR_SUSTAINABILITY_JOURNALS

    The SFX target JSTOR_SUSTAINABILITY_JOURNALS_AND_RESEARCH_REPORTS (4577 portfolios) exists already but cannot be activated when the journals-only collection is available at an institution.
    Therefore its necessary to have an Journals-only target in SFX as well.

    The title list with its 111 titles can be found here:
    https://www.jstor.org/librarians/products/thematic-collections/sustainability/

  6. F-Mesh in MARC21

    F-Mesh is a bilingual French/English version of the Medical Subject Headings (Mesh).
    We are a French speaking Library network using MARC21. We were very happy to hear that Alma now includes F-Mesh as a subject headings vocabulary. However, as it is available only in UNIMARC, we cannot use it. If you are in the same situation, then don’t hesitate to vote for this Idea!

  8. Bloomberg Law

    Bloomberg Law (https://www.bloomberglaw.com) is a major platform for American legal content, including books, journals, news channels, and other sources. Please add an Alma CZ collection covering the Bloomberg Law content made available by subscription to academic law libraries.

    Please also explore the possibility of using Bloomberg Law MARC records to enrich the CZ records: https://www.bna.com/marc-records-bloomberg-m17179934017 Without enriched CZ records, libraries that are currently loading vendor records for this collection are likely to continue doing so rather than use a CZ collection.

    Also, the linking and title lists of the following BNA e-collections are outdated. Bloomberg has shut down…

  11. E-Journal target for SFX: JSTOR_LIVES_OF_LITERATURE

    The Title list can be found here: https://www.jstor.org/librarians/products/thematic-collections/lives-of-literature/#content

    It makes the e-ressources librarian possible to activate the SFX-link-resolver for the JSTOR-collection LIVES_OF_LITERATURE. This generates an added values for our users like e.g.: adding SFX-Link in catalogue, visibility of SFX-Button in Google Scholar, etc.

  14. Naxos Music Library to SFX/Alma link resolver KB

    Naxos Music Library

    www.naxosmusiclibrary.com - Naxos is a prominent producer of classical music recordings. The online service (Naxos Music Library) offers the complete Naxos and Marco Polo catalogues, plus thousands of titles from other labels, including Chandos, BIS, Hungaroton, Hanssler, Bridge, First Edition, CPO, Coro, and Wergo.

    It would be great to add this database into SFX CKB/Alma. Many libraries with discovery services are purchasing this database, but if wish to link over their proxies it requires to link over a link resolvers.
