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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

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

    • Add American Chemical Society Journals and Ebooks to Primo Central Index

      Could you please add American Chemical Society (ACS) journals and ebooks as a collection in the Primo Central Index?

      Although ACS content is currently included in the Cross Ref PCI collection, they're only brief citations.

                              • Add "ACS Symposium Series eBooks - Archives" to CZ

                                Could you please add the "ACS Symposium Series eBooks - Archives" as a collection in the Alma Community Zone knowledge base?

                                Currently there's an "American Chemical Society Symposium Series" collection in the CZ which includes backfile and front file titles.

                                Since my library only owns the archival collection, I have to select only those titles in the larger Symposium CZ collections since there's no separate archive collection.

                                The archival collection has a 4 year moving wall where it gains a new year of titles annually.

                                Thank you.

                                  • Add Harvard University Press (DeGruyter) Ebook Collections to CZ

                                    Could you please add each of the various Harvard University Press ebook packages as separate DeGruyter collections in the Community Zone? For example, complete Harvard collections by publication year, subject, archive, backlist, etc.

                                    Currently, there’s only a “de Gruyter eBooks Complete” collection (50,403 titles) in the Community Zone that includes Harvard University Press titles so I had to manually select them within the larger collection.

                                    It would be much easier if there were separate Harvard University Press ebook collections in the CZ.
