    I agree. I work for a consortium CARLI and libraries have been looking for ways to exclude either certain e-collections from CDI or certain types of material.

    Here's some of our notes

    For CDI searching, a setting in Alma to exclude certain varieties or collections of Ex Libris’ harvested citations:

    For example:
    1. Selected Institutional Repository Records from other libraries and/or other libraries outside our collaborative network such as:
    1. LibGuides,
    2. very brief bibs
    3. course reserves.

    2. Language of publication screening: (if language indicated for textual materials,)
    exclude (or send to bottom of relevancy ranking)
    materials in languages
    the library indicates less relevant.

    Justification:
    More control over CDI citations would increase patron satisfaction and save the users time.
    For example, LibGuides and other local websites are by their nature rarely helpful to academic library users with no relation to the campus library that sponsors them.

    Institutional Repository Records vary wildly in quality and completeness. Some are inherently local such as library LibGuides, on-the-fly bibs, course reserves or ephemera.

    Public services librarians know their communities well. They want to improve discovery services by setting what collections are eligible for searching or not. Or if not exclude, then lower in results’ lists by making less relevant.

    We realize that most of these questionable results are coming when the "Expand My Results" box is checked but they do appear in other searches too.
