  1. Collect statistics about CZ Authorities records

    We are looking for a way to collect statistics of GND authority records created by our Institution via Alma in the Community Zone.
    This could be done via Analytics (for exemple by adding an CZ Authorities subject area) or another reporting tool.
    Among other things, we would like to know which user has created or modified an authority record in the CZ.

  2. attachments tab for any item

    Is it possible to have an attachment tab added at the physical item editor level? So that we can attach files for anything regardless of whether the item has a POL, or is in a collection.

    For example, we have an old kit purchased prior to our alma migration, so we have no POL/invoice, nor is it in a local collection. So at present we have no way to attach a pdf copy of the guide that goes with the kit. Guides go missing all the time. We do keep a physical master, but it would be nice to just…

  4. Mouse cursor after save

    In the Meta data editor after "save", the cursor goes to the LDR field. It would be nice if the cursor will go to the search of Alma.

  5. Controlled Vocabulary: Deploy Changes the from Controlled Vocabulary Registry Screen

    As a catalog administrator, I want to deploy controlled vocabulary changes from the controlled vocabulary registry screen with a deploy button so that don't lose time with navigating to another screen.

    Currently, controlled vocabularies that are managed in the controlled vocabulary registry must be deployed in a separate step by going to Alma configuration > Resources > Metadata management > e.g. MARC21 Bibliographic > Deploy.

  6. Controlled Vocabulary: Display locally managed controlled vocabularies in the Controlled Vocabulary Registry

    As a metadata administrator, I want one place in the Alma configuration that shows me all controlled vocabularies so that I can view and modify them more easily.

    Currently, locally managed controlled vocabularies (that are linked locally to just one specific field) aren't displayed in the controlled vocabulary registry. This makes it tedious to look them up, view and modify them. To do so, you currently have to go to the specific field and subfield in the metadata configuration. This costs a lot of clicks and feels tedious.

  7. Merge rules: Make primary and secondary records configurable

    For merge rules, it is currently fixed which of the two records involved is primary and secondary. However, for certain scenarios, it would be very handy to have the possibility to change that default configuration (a) as default for the specific rule, and (b) when applying the merge rule in the metadata editor. For example, if you want to use external search to enrich your record on the left pane with the record on the right pane. This functionality would also facilitate the re-use of merge rules (say, you want the same kind of fields to be retained for an…

  8. Metadata Editor: add filter sort by type XSL

    It would be helpful when searching for shared norm rules to be able to sort by type XSL. Right now when looking for a rule to copy and customize we have to pick thru a list of several hundred, because the majority are drool.

  9. Sort Subfields Task does not work correctly in combination with Authorities - Preferred Term Correction

    We've defined the following Sort Subfields Task but there seems to be a problem in combination with "GND Authorities -Preferred Term correction"

    700: iaqbcdtmnrpkolgfs0
    710: iagbndctkplfs0
    711: iagendctkplfs0

    The subfield i which we defined as first in 700/710/711 is suddenly put last. If this happen, the latest job that was run is always Authorities - Preferred Term correction

    In any case, the sorting should be the way we defined it in the Sort Subfields Task

  10. Return Expand From Template wide drop-down menu

    In the previous metadata editor the drop-down menu of serial patterns was wide enough so that we could see the complete description of each pattern. The new metadata editor cuts off the descriptions so that we must guess which is the correct pattern, and then remove the field and start over if the guess is wrong.
