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.

  2. Need two CZ Selective Packages for 'Westlaw Thomson Reuters' database

    It would be useful to have two Selective Packages for the ‘Westlaw Thomson Reuters’ database. One Selective package for ‘International’ content, and another for ‘US’ content.

    At our library we provide a link to each of the two ‘sides’ of the database, as Article Title searches on each ‘side’ produce different results, depending on which ‘side’ the article is found. If an article is in the ‘US’ side, it can be found by an Article Title search on the ‘US’ side, but not on the ‘International’ side (and vice versa). (Journal Title searches allow the journal to be found the…

  3. Classiques Sciences Sociales Free

    Classiques Sciences Sociales Free collection is composed of more than 4,300 portfolios. Most of the records are very poor: only the title, one author, and the eISBN. The publication date in 008/7-10 is usually incorrect.
    Full Marc records exist for these items and are available under certain conditions (for libraries) at http://classiques.uqac.ca/inter/telechargement_notices.php?lang=en
    Note also that Les Classiques des sciences sociales actually contain more than 6,500 free works http://classiques.uqac.ca . A general update of this collection would be welcome.

  4. 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.

  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: JSTORSUSTAINABILITYJOURNALS

    The SFX target JSTORSUSTAINABILITYJOURNALSANDRESEARCH_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. Target / collection for Science (AAAS)

    In the SFX KB the magazine "Science" (AAAS) is a portfolio in the "Miscellaneous E-journals" target in SFX.

    Please consider:

    a) creating a separate target for Science magazine and
    b) improving the linking level (currently journal-level)

    In addition, also consider adding a PCI collection.

  10. Add Urbadoc database to Primo Central index

    Urbadoc bibliographic database indexes european architectural journals and can enrich PCI with unique references.
    It would be very useful to have this database searchable in Primo Central Index.

  11. MIT Press ebooks

    We would like to be created a new target in SFX KB for the objects (ebooks) included in the file attached (MIT Press Philosophy collection).
    The access that will should be created is from the site of the publisher MIT PRESS https://direct.mit.edu/, not of the vendors.
    Thank you.

  14. Welsh Newspapers Online / PCI

    Let's add Welsh Newspapers Online to Primo Central Index.
    The collection is available in the Alma CZ, but not currently tickable in PCI so the newspaper scope is not able to pick up this fundamental Welsh resource.

  16. 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!

  17. Portico Post-cancellation/perpetual access

    In 360 KB and SFX (maybe in Alma as well) there exist several databases for Portico - triggered Content.

    But Portico has a supplementary offer that is called "Portico - Post-cancellation/perpetual access". This offer contains journals from various publishers where the post-cancellation access is partly not through the platform of the publisher but through Portico.

    You find some information about this offer here: https://www.portico.org/for-participants/#pca

    The title lists for this database can be found here: https://www.portico.org/coverage/titles/ - it includes e-journals and e-books.

    I ask you to add this database to SFX and 360 KB (and Alma if it doesn't exist there…

  18. 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.
