    Alternative Coverage in CDI

    Return to menu

    With CDI it is no longer necessary to activate alternative coverage collections. In CDI all full text that you have active in Alma or SFX is automatically searchable. This applies to everything regardless of whether we have received the metadata for discovery directly from the provider of a collection that you have activated in the KnowledgeBase. We ingest high quality metadata from many different sources into CDI. In cases where we do not get the data directly from the provider, those titles are mapped against the entire index, and the item-level metadata is activated for search and marked with the Full text available indicator automatically.

    KnowledgeBase collections whose titles are at least to 80% discoverable in CDI are marked with the In CDI indicator in the Alma interface/SFX KBManager regardless of whether the metadata was received directly from the same provider or an alternative data source. Later in April, we will publish CDI's full collection list that will contain information about the data sources from which we receive metadata directly.
