Hello all,
We have been in contact with the provider.
At this time they do not have a Discovery feed or KB title lists to supply, though they are working on creating both of these, in alignment with our recommendations.
As soon as either of these resources are available and an agreement is signed, we will renew conversations with the provider to ingest this content.
The provider is receptive and responsive, though creating a feed and title lists may take them some time.
For now we are setting this request to “Accepted” to release the votes and to ensure that we can pick this up when the provider is prepared.
Thank you for your contribution!
Best,
Rael

I wholeheartedly support this idea. Our colleges in Hawaii are active participants and co-creators in this space and this resource is invaluable to our faculty.

I've submitted a new idea - we'd like to have LibreTexts ebooks and course content also added to the Alma CZ:

Yes, this 'idea' is very important as well. Increasingly, LibreText is the go-to for our instructional faculty.
We would like to add LibreTexts vast collection of open educational resources (OER), including ebooks and course materials bibliographic records added to the Alma CZ: https://libretexts.org/ Then, libraries could add LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to course reserve lists in Alma and Primo.
LibreTexts is home to the largest collection of open educational resources online. Adding LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to the Alma CZ would ensure users have access to OER from across a wide variety of disciplines.

This would be a great for libraries and students! You have my vote.
I agree with Ryan that the LibreTexts ebooks would be very helpful for indexing, etc.
Please add my vote in support of Ryan Edward's idea to add Libre texts OER materials to the CDI.
It would also be useful, if the the LibreTexts ebooks could be added to the CZ as bib records, so not just the site could be indexed, but all the site's content could be harvested.
Thanks,
Ryan
