There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Change massively the Pattern type and Linking number, both item fields

    We would like to massively change the Pattern type and Linking number fields. It can not be done either via API or with Job(Change physical items).
    The purpose of these massive changes at the item level (fascicles) is the automatic creation of field 866 in the MARC record for each journal holding according to the fascicles received in Alma. In our case, it is essential to make this massive change but it can not be done via job or via API.

  3. More options for corporate and special libraries.

    The Institutional Analytics Profile is focused on academic libraries. We are a corporate library with no students (we have researchers and scientists) and no schools.

    There is not an option for Not Relevant for "Total undergraduate student body size" or "Does your library serve any of the following professional graduate schools?"

    Could a question exist for the number of researchers or scientists?
