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:

  6. Add the Bridget Williams Books collections to Primo Central Index

    As a student and researcher of New Zealand materials I would like the books published by Bridget Williams Books to be indexed in Primo Central Index.

    Background: Currently the content of these collections is not discoverable in Primo. This makes it harder to discover key New Zealand content and impacts the efficiency of my study and research capabilities.

  8. Add DigiZeitschriften to PCI / CDI

    We would like to see the journal platform DigiZeitschriften added to PCI / CDI.

    For more information, see: https://www.digizeitschriften.de/en/

    In Alma there are already 3 Electronic Collections:
    - DigiZeitschriften Open Access
    - DigiZeitschriften Subscription
    - DigiZeitschriften Journals

    Please keep this subdivision in PCI / CDI.

    Since this source contains many old journals without ISSN, it would probably be better if the links to the full text came directly from DigiZeitschriften (Primo Link section) to avoid problems with the link resolver (Alma ViewIt).

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you please investigate adding the HeinOnline Academic Core Electronic Collection to the CZ please? It contains the following full text content - https://home.heinonline.org/heinonline-academic-core/

    You seem to have a few of these listed separately already. But it would be useful to have them all listed so that we can select them all or have a single Academic Core collection to tick that contains all of the content.

  10. Add videos from "CBC Curio" to the knowledge base (https://curio.ca/en/)

    The Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) is Canada's publicly-funded national media station, and almost every Canadian library subscribes to the Curio videostreaming service, so we would like to be able to track the content in Summon and 360 Link.

  14. New LexisNexis / Nexis Uni linking solution

    It feels like a very small minority of links to Nexis Uni content resolve successfully. I've opened a number of support tickets without much progress, only to be told that LexisNexis/Nexis Uni simply doesn't work well with the OpenURL resolver. I'd like more development work to go into this connection as it renders a large amount of content in a very popular database inaccessible.

  17. Change the 'Citation Online' feature for the content type=Report for ASFA records when full text is available

    I would like to propose that the content type=Report for Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts (ASFA) records are changed so that ASFA records with Full text links can be shown instead of 'Citation Online' which is misleading to the client. We have inputted thousands of government document records in ASFA which have a full text link but these links are not currently displayed in the Summon Brief results. ASFA is no longer just an abstract and indexing database as it now includes links to full text publications and grey literature. This should be changed as it can impact all users…
