Need a Physical items folder in the Course Reserves Subject area
Items details are missing from the Course reserves subject area in Alma Analytics. So can't get Barcode and other item details for course reserves.
While we wait for this to be implemented, if anyone is interested I created a python script that approximates this enhancement. It ingests a report from analytics that contains basic course information, then makes a series of API calls to gather item information, including barcodes, and ties the item information to to the course information in a single row. Output is an XLSX file. You can find it here: https://github.com/mcclib/Alma-Reserve-Inventory

This would be an immense improvement! Not having this information is a real pain.

Yes, please add the item details to the course reserves area in Alma Analytics. Having that information would make it easier to run Alma jobs based off of sets, it would make it possible to do an inventory of physical items that should be on the reserves shelves/in the reserves area, as well as assist with usage statistics.

It would also enable calculation of the copies to students ratio for physical citations
