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 content from a provider that already has content available in the KBs and CDI, 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

  2. A new Alma CZ authority vocabulary for the Finnish work-authority-file (case 06675712)

    A request for new content ASAP, upon ExLibris suggestion (case 06675712): a new Alma CZ authority vocabulary for the Finnish work-authority-file

    The National Library of Finland offers a work authority file, which is urgently needed by all Finnish Alma-libraries. As it turns out, it is not possible to add the Finnish work-authority-file into the existing Alma CZ FINAF vocabulary (due to the work-authority records and name-authority records with identical 001 fields). As a workaround, ExLibris SF support suggested (see case 06675712) adding a new Alma CZ authority vocabulary containing only the Finnish work-authority-file.

    Hence, we are requesting Ex Libris to…

  3. Editorial Tirant lo Blanch

    Editorial Tirant lo Blanch (https://editorial.tirant.com/es) is one of the main Law content providers in Spanish. The majority of the academic institutions are their customer.

    They produced databases, journals and books, and host them in their platforms (called Tirant Online, Biblioteca Tirant and Nube de Lectura). It would be very interesting to be able to index their contents.

    Adding their resources in the CDI would be very beneficial for all academic institutions studying Spanish Law.

  7. New Community Zone electronic collection request: IET Open Access Journals on Wiley Online Library

    The University of Strathclyde requests the addition of a new CZ collection for IET Open Access titles that are now available on the Research Hub on Wiley Online Library. The details of the 43 titles to be added are listed here: https://ietresearch.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/
    Currently the IET titles are available on the ‘Wiley Online Library Open Access’ collection (Collection ID: 614330000000000427)’ however the content has now moved from the main Wiley Online Library ( https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com ) site to the Research Hub on Wiley Online ( https://ietresearch.onlinelibrary.wiley.com ), and the links no longer work.

  8. Add Lamyline

    Lamyline
    https://www.lamyline.fr

    This is a duplicate and enriched idea from : https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/574345-content/suggestions/33007996-lamyline which has been closed in 2021.

    Access to the continuously updated Lamy publisher documentary collection: the official collection (national and EU official texts, treaties, private law case law, public law case law, European case law, administrative authorities), Lamy books and journals in French.
    Lamy is a French publisher that doesn't exist in the KB; however, the company is now part of Kluwer: I hope this still makes it a new publisher for you.
    Ideally, for Alma and CDI.

  9. JSTOR Path to Open Ebooks

    The first 100 titles in JSTOR's new Path to Open initiative will be live on their platform in October. The title list is already available so it would be great if Ex Libris could work to add the new collection in time for when the titles go live.
    https://about.jstor.org/path-to-open/titles/

    Please treat this as an annual ebook collection as 2024, 2025, 2026 will have discrete collections and libraries can opt whether to participate in just one year or all years.

  10. MOOC, Open Courses and Open Coursewares

    As helpful to newbies on curtain subject as other results already included in Summon Index.

    Index the resourses from Coursera, edX, HarvardX, or any MOOC platform around the world. As well as OCWs at MIT, etc.

    Many popular courses are hosted on multiple platforms, so they need to be generalized by name and teachers, like what EJP does for journals, I suppose.

  11. Target/Collection: University of Alberta Libraries OJS Journal Collection

    The University of Alberta Library publishes a high quality collection of over 40 open access journals, many of whom have been publishing for over a decade https://journals.library.ualberta.ca/. These titles provide globally relevant, peer-reviewed multi-disciplinary content with particular strengths in Education and Social Sciences. Improved access to these resources will benefit researchers and students world-wide. Library publishers are important partners in knowledge creation and discovery, and we would like to work with Ex Libris to include important collections like these in their discovery environments.

  18. CZ AMD bib material type revised

    There are many AMD related collections (Collection ID: 61616107200003966; Collection ID: 61616086800003966 and so on) in ALMA CZ. We found many resources bib material type are defined as JOURNAL, which is wrong compared with the real situation(They may be manscript,document ,photograph in the database platform). However, we cannot upload electronic material type in batch to replace.

    We think CZ should confirm and fix the wrong bib material type.
