  1. Academic Departments - add field for Faculty/School

    Academic Departments within institutions often sit under Faculty or School groups. This is currently not represented in Alma or Leganto. Could we have a new (optional) field added for School/Faculty both to the Academic Department area and have it available in Analytics.

    We are considering adding a field to the course record in Alma, reportable in Analytics, for the faculty/school. It could be used for reporting purposes but not for discovery purposes. In other words, you would be able to pull list usage by faculty/school, but end users would not be able to browse by faculty/school. Would it still be helpful? 

  2. Improvement and development of the Leganto broken link handling

    At the moment Alma offers very little to properly handle Leganto broken links via the task-list menu. Once a Broken Link Alert is removed, the information is gone from Alma entirely. The functionality is inadequate as a workflow for library staff when investigating and recording details of our progress in fixing the problem, keeping students informed and statistical reporting.

    We would like to see additional functionality :
    • Broken Link Alerts to have a more permanent record in Alma and Analytics
    • Introduction of additional fields to capture information about the Broken Links - for example broken link status (e.g.…

  3. Overview of readings lists in a study program

    Leganto gives the possibility to
    - link to a specific course (and display the list(s) associated to this course)
    - get an overview of all the reading lists belonging to a specific academic departments, through their course association

    The missing link in between is the association of a smaller number of courses, belonging to the same academic department or not:
    the study program.

    Librarians and instructors could associate courses to a study program as easily as they can associate a list to a course.
    Students could search for a program in the find list interface.

  4. Add MARC field 240 as a new field in Leganto

    We have several records representing e-books, which are published as e-books (much) later than when the same content was published as a printed book. The printed book may be published in 2007, the same e-book in 2019, and even if both dates are recorded in the 008-field of the record, this information is not displayed in Leganto. Only the actual publishing year (in our example 2019) is visible to the user. It makes it look like a newer edition, which it is not.
    Ex: https://bibsys-k.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/leganto/readinglist/citation/14473946130002204?institute=47BIBSYS_UBO&auth=SAML

    Our case was closed last time (#05336252) but we are now moving to RDA standards,…

  5. When adding citations to a list via search, prioritize latest edition and owned item first

    Sometimes instructors perform a citation search in Leganto and just add the first result that comes up in the search results; often this is actually a book review or other format that isn't logical for reserves. Additionally, most instructors are searching and expecting the latest edition to appear first in the list. Other faculty from certain departments want to choose a particular edition, and so need edition information prominently surfaced in the search result.

    This results in processing delays as staff must check with instructors to clarify what items they really intended to place on reserve.

    One possible solution may…

    We are exploring options for this idea. The priority of the results is set by either Primo or Summon, so we cannot simply show the newest edition first unless the discovery ranking changes. However, we could potentially develop an option using the Questions feature in which the system could recognize that the instructor has added something which has other editions. The library could then configure a question for the instructor to understand if they want that edition, any edition, or the newest edition, for example. Would this help meet the need?

  6. Reading list ‘bulk export’ in Leganto

    Currently the only way to export reading lists in Leganto is exporting them one at a time. I would like to suggest an option for a bulk export of reading lists, where one can export more than one list in a single operation.

    A possible workflow could be adding an ‘Export’-option in the “Find lists”-menu, and using a prompt for selecting lists to export. It could additionally be available in the “My lists”-menu.

    Ideally the export options should be the same as when exporting a single list or section, with choices like File Type, Bibliographic Styles and Sorting.

    There are…

    We would like all editions of a book to be visible to students, similar to the function ‘Other Formats and Editions’. Ideally, they would have accessible links to display these editions in our Library catalogue.

  8. Accessibility for Digital Items on Course Reserves

    Currently we are only able to add one file to a single citation. We would like to provide all the alternative electronic formats for scanned articles and book chapters to make sure that our electronic resources are more accessible. We have been testing with the Blackboard Ally program, which produces alternative electronic files of the following types: OCRedPDF, Tagged PDF, Audio, HTML, Electronic Braille, ePub and Beeline Reader. Another option for the future could be Leganto automatically making those file types available once you attach a scanned document. The file transforming tool we are currently using is at https://ally.ac/covid19/ .

  9. Add Electronic Collection data to Course Reserves Analytics

    In Alma Analytics, accessing information about Leganto citations is best managed via the Course Reserves area. However, the Course Reserve reports available seem set up for physical items. For example, we do not have the option to pull Electronic Collection data from Alma Analytics for citations. The limitation is especially true for CDI resources, where you cannot even obtain an MMS ID.

    When vendors pull ebooks or other cited materials from their selection, it’s important that the library is able to identify affected resources quickly. This allows the library to proactively manage the citation, locating the materials elsewhere or work…

  10. Multiple assignees per list

    Some institutions would like the possibility to have several assigned librarians per lists.
    "We have many lists common to several campuses, and it will only increase in the future. In order to have a local overview, the campus libraries would like to be able to see the lists that are relevant to their campus. As of today this is difficult, as one one librarian can be assigned a list. We need to rely on manual processes (forwarding lists, and having manual overviews over which lists are for multiple campuses). This is difficult to maintain."

  11. Retain citation status (Being Prepared / Complete) when copying or duplicating a list

    When using the duplicate list or copy section functions, citations which have previously been marked as Complete will revert to Being Prepared. This creates unnecessary additional work for our staff who have to mark the citations as complete again.

  12. Suggest Replacement feature - keep book extract or chapter information

    When using the Suggest Replacement feature for book extract or chapter citations, the data in the chapter and/or page range fields should be kept (rather than automatically deleted) if the suggestion is approved. When the suggestion is approved either from Leganto or Alma there should be an alert (like a pop-up box) to notify the user they may need to check the chapter/page range details on the suggested replacement.

    Alternatively, the user could be presented with an option to decide whether the chapter/extract information is kept or overwritten.

  14. More detailed 'Recent Changes' tab

    The number of changes recorded in the Recent Changes tab is limited. We'd like to see a complete log of changes in the reading list. For example, we'd like to see if a comment in the Library Discussion has been deleted (and in what citation). Also possibly if a citation has been located to a different MMSID. In Alma and Analytics we can see the Last Modification date and Modified By, but we do not know what the modification was unless it is recorded in Recent Changes.

  15. Publish electronic records without inventory as e-book and not physical book

    We are a consortium, and we have a certain number of e-book records without inventory in our network zone. Deleting these records is not an option for us for various reasons.

    The expected Alma behavior for such records if there is no inventory is to publish as physical. It applies to both Primo and Leganto.

    Use case: an instructor uses the expanded search to check for newer edition of a book they have previously used in a reading list. They add what seems to be a newer physical edition from 2020. In reality, the record is an e-book published as…

  16. More frequent notifications for Library Discussion Notes

    Library Discussion Notes are a great way to communicate with faculty about the status of resources cited in reading lists. However, notifications about new notes are only delivered once per day at midnight using the detailed notifications letter. This delays response times. A more frequent schedule for Library Discussion Notes, such as hourly, would be much more efficient and useful for faculty and staff.

  17. Option to link Leganto citation metadata to Alma/Primo bibliographic data

    Bibliographic metadata for books is often improved in Alma/Primo after a citation has been created in Leganto. We would like the option to link the citation metadata from Alma/Primo so that when Alma/Primo metadata is updated, the Leganto citation metadata would be updated also.

  18. Allow subsections

    It would be helpful to allow the creation of subsections within each section. For example, I have a reading list and the sections are labeled Module 01, etc. In the syllabus, the instructor has 6-7 readings that say "choose one or two of these". This can be added as a public note on those specific readings, but it would be nice to have the option to create a subsection within that module instead - or some other way to group those readings together.

  19. Keep deleted citation records in the system

    When we remove a citation record the system delete it without any historical information.

    It would be very useful to mantain the information about the deleted citations (and be able to collect this information with Analytics, as is currently the case with bibliographic records) to perform tasks on the documents physically, like changing items location or removing stickers...

  20. Display Public Access Model message in Leganto

    At UNSW, we use portfolio’s Public Access Model to indicate if an eBook has unlimited or restricted access. The same message also shows in Primo so users are aware of the conditions before accessing eBooks.

    We believe the information will also benefit our Leganto users, but unfortunately, the message doesn’t display in Leganto, so we would like to propose the idea of displaying the Public Access Model message in Leganto.

    We raised a case with Ex Libris, but they said it is not part of their current development work plan.
