  1. Support presentation of reading lists in an iFrame within VLE / LMS

    Ex Libris currently do not recommend integrating Leganto reading lists within a VLE / LMS using an iframe, as there is an issue with cookies.

    Users receive an "Illegal Institution" message on certain browsers (eg. Safari on macOS) with the cookie policy as in browser default.

    We would like to ask for this issue to be re-investigated by Ex Libris and an alternative proposed for roadmap development that fixes the issue without inelegant workarounds such as manually altering browser cookie policies or using a different web browser - noting that these workarounds are not always possible for users depending on…

    • Control order of list display for multiple lists associated with a course

      For courses which have multiple lists, each of which may have a time focus, the display order of lists is not always as desired by the title sort alone, e.g. Week 1 vs Week 11. It would be useful to be able to control the order of list display when there are multiple lists.

      • Sub-divide sections within a reading list

        As an instructor, I would like to be able to sub-divide sections within a reading list, e.g. Week 1 is a section, subdividing this into Mandatory, Optional, tutorial question, etc

        • Public and Library Tags

          Currently both Library and Public tags are a closed, predefined set. It would be a better user experience if tags were open (especially Public tags) and could be created by both Librarians and Instructors, as and when required.

          • Add instructors automatically using role in LTI launch request

            A course can have a number of instructors teaching on it, and it might be difficult to keep the details of the instructors of courses and owners of reading lists up to date in Alma.

            Rather than having to update these details manually, or pre-load them using the Course loading integration profile, I suggest that there is an option for the LTI Integration profile to automatically assign an instructor of a course and owner of the associated reading lists, if the user in the LTI launch request has a role of "instructor."

            Even better if the Alma "Instructor" role could…

            • Incorporate Blackboard Student View into LTI Integration

              Currently, the Blackboard LTI integration does not allow instructors to use Student View to see reading lists from the student's perspective. (Doing so results in error: 400 Unknown user id.) Please allow the temporary student that is created in Blackboard to be created in Alma, thereby enabling Student View.

              • Allow LTI Integration to Pass Course ID from LMS and Create Course in Alma

                Due to course merging, the Course ID in the LMS is not always obvious. Please allow the LTI integration to pass the Course ID from the LMS and automatically create the course in Alma. This would occur when the instructor adds/creates the LTI integration in the LMS and initiates the link. Of course, manual course creation on the library side should always be possible as well.

                • Add student level activity to Leganto reports

                  Academics would like to track student usage of Leganto reading lists as an indicator for students who are at risk of under-performing or dropping out of courses.
                  A way of identifying students who are not reading or participating on the Leganto list would be useful.

                  • Being able as an instructor to see all reading lists attached to a specific course

                    As an instructor, it might be useful to search for a course (whether it is the instructor's courses or a collaborator's courses) to obtain the list of all related reading lists of that specific course. Right now, in the Instructor page, the search for course name will only list the reading list that the instructor has already created, or followed. Thanks

                    • Enable reading list items to be added to a PO line.

                      It would be helpful if items on order could be assigned to a reading list from the PO line by acquisitions staff and the reading list module information be a part of the PO line information.

                      • Enable the use to set the initial display of the list as collapsed

                        All sections will be collapsed and the user will then expand the relevant section (or all section).

                        • Enable the user to focus on the relevant sections, based on the date

                          If the list is built by week, by default all sections relevant to the past will be collapsed. Only the current week's section and future sections will be expanded, by default.
