Permit Esploro asset records to be linked to bib records in Alma in the same way that holdings, portfolios, and digital representations are linked.
Create an Alma job by which library staff can link assets to bib records by uploading a spreadsheet of asset IDs and their corresponding bib MMS IDs.
Currently, we have two records for every ETD in our collection, the Alma bib record and the Esploro asset record. Both describe the same resource (the bib better than the asset record) and so they should be linked and not turn up in Primo as two separate search results.16 votes
Esploro assets and Alma bib records are considered different entities, each one stands by itself so it is not planned to link an Esploro asset as a service of an Alma bib record. Having said that, we are considering to allow to create a relation between an asset and an Alma bib record in a similar way we allow to create relations between assets in Esploro today. Would this be a possible solution for your need?
On the researcher profiles, it would be very helpful to have the DOI (as a link) and the PMID (also as a link) display on the researcher profile. Our faculty members currently display these on their existing profiles and they are both considered standard parts of citations.14 votes
We would like researchers to be able to add an affiliation, whether or not that affiliation is listed in GRID or other system. This would allow them to list commercial entities, as well as smaller organizations that may not be included.
We also do not want the list of titles in affiliations connected to our internal list of titles. Some of the terms (Assistant/Associate/Professor are fairly standard in the US, but other of our local titles are not as standard in at every institution, and definitely may be different internationally.13 votes
