  1. Add an instructor role in Alma for additional roles in LTI launch request

    Ex Libris completed an enhancement to add an instructor role to an Alma user via LTI. This is great but we need this for instructional staff who support teaching staff, but have canvas system level permissions rather than individual course permissions.

    There are additional roles in Canvas (and perhaps other CMS systems) that should add an instructor role in Alma, as well:

    | Canvas Role | LTI String | Desired Alma Role
    | Teacher | Instructor | Instructor
    | TA | urn:lti:role:ims/lis/TeachingAssistant | Instructor
    | Designer | Content Developer | Instructor
    | Account Admin | urn:lti:instrole:ims/lis/Administrator | Instructor

    We would…

    • Ability to maintain our own subject lists

      The current subject categories are unusable, for example there are 3 categories for Horticulture, plant breeding and plant propagation but nothing for Business or IT. You have a category for Heraldry, which isn't that common but nothing for physiotherapy or midwifery. As for Seals is that to do with heraldry or the animals?
      We have had to turn them all off as a result. Can we have a function to maintain our own subject lists with the ability to add our own entries?

      • Update the citation field labels when resource types other than Book or Journals are selected

        Currently when a user selects citation types for video or audio etc, the field labels are not updated to match accordingly.

        Mapping of fields such as that used in reference managers like Endnote would help for better display to students, and help instructors to enter appropriate metadata. eg. For a video in the more details section the labels mention pages. "Total pages" could be relabelled as "Running Time".

        • Hide or customise the top and bottom sections of the quick start wizard.

          We want instructors to focus in the middle section to create lists. The top section is too broad, instructors have to scroll down to get to the main functionality. The bottom section is irrelevant especially the gif, we can't even change it

          • Duplicating lists - navigate automatically to new list

            When a user duplicates a list we would expect Leganto to navigate automatically to the newly created (duplicated) list rather than the original list.

            This has caused confusion for some users, who do not realise that they need to navigate to 'My Lists' in order to find their duplicated list. This has resulted in lots of duplicate draft lists appearing in our system which are not required.

            • Ability to retrieve deleted list sections or individual citations

              Ability to retrieve deleted list sections or deleted individual citations. When deleting individual list sections or individual citations from a list, could the deleted items be held in an area (e.g. "trash bin") so as to be retrievable if deleted in error. Could this functionality be available for both instructors and librarians.

              • Pop up to associate a duplicated with original course or updated course for a different academic year

                A newly duplicated reading list remains attached to the same course as the original from which the duplicated reading list was made. We would expect that when a list has been duplicated a prompt box is generated which gives the user the option to associate the reading list with the original course or re-associate it with an updated course for a different academic year.

                User story

                As an academic I would like to duplicate the current year's reading list which is attached to a course for 2016/17 and create a reading list for 2017/18. Within this list duplication process I…

                • Auto Save tags when entering

                  When adding tags you have to select the tag then click the Save button. If you hit Enter it adds the next tag in the list! Most users will hit enter thinking this will Save the tag. I'd like to eliminate the extra click on the Save button and have tags auto save.

                  • Option to use custom resource type icons

                    In Primo we have a custom set of resource type icons as the default images are too small and appear fuzzy. (path to the images is "custom/<institutional view>/img/"
                    In Leganto only the default icons are available, or each icon must be manually updated.
                    Manual updates for every citation is unmanageable, and would only result in inconsistent user experience.

                    We would like an option to specify that the same set from a Primo view be used, or as a fall-back somewhere specific to put the same set of icons for Leganto to use.

                    • Additional Citation Alerts for purchase and resource sharing requests

                      Citations with resource sharing and purchase requests submitted currently display alerts showing submission and approval or rejection. However the next steps in those two processes are not added. It would help library staff if the next steps were also shown as alerts, especially when they are backing up staff who are on leave. Email notifications about these items would have been sent to staff who are absent. Examples are:

                      1. Resource Sharing request received
                      2. Ordered item received
                      3. Ordered electronic item activated

                      • Task list - broken links alert should link to the Citations list not the Reading Lists area

                        Broken links alerts are most likely to be checked by a central team in the first instance.

                        Current workflow is unnecessarily long to identify and fix citations with newly broken links:
                        Reading List Task list
                        Select citations with broken links.
                        Choose a list to Work on
                        Filter list by Broken Links alert
                        Once the citation link has been resolved, they need to return to the Task List to identify the next list with a broken link

                        Preferred workflow:
                        Reading List Task list
                        Select citations with broken links.
                        This should take you to the Citations List (not the Reading Lists area)…

                              Currently the Find List search in Leganto is searching for Course Titles and Course codes and instructors. Rather than searching at the Reading List level. As we keep most of our information at Reading List level, It would be helpful if this was renamed Find Course and Make another Search to Find Reading Lists information. Which could search Reading List title, Reading List code, and Reading List Instructors.

                                  • Alternative method for Stackmap integration

                                    At present the only option for integrating StackMap into Leganto is to use an Integration profile of "Discovery Interface" type. This forces the integration to display in Primo as well as Leganto.

                                    We are using custom javascript in Primo for a superior user experience of the maps, and do not want to compromise that by having the integration profile create additional sub-par map views.

                                    Our preferred option would be for the same user experience in Leganto as Primo. A fallback option would be to have a separate integration profile of type "Leganto" independent of the "Discovery Interface" profile. This is…

                                    • Allow visibility at a section level

                                      Currently we are able to set visibility at a citation level, it would be good if we could set it at a section level. For eg, if my reading list is by week, i would create various sections as weeks with a number of citations under each section. Hence instead of editing the visibility at each citation level, we could edit the visibility at a section level.

                                        We have an open search page for Leganto and make our lists open as well. Because of this people will often find lists in different ways i.e. not just following the link from the VLE.

                                        If you find a list that is open and then log in, or if you are on the open search page and log in, you are always taken to the "My lists" screen.

                                        I propose that when you log in you are returned to the page you started on i.e. if you are on a list page and log in you are returned to the…

                                          At the moment if a member of staff, or a student, wishes to get a permalink to list they need to be logged in. I propose that permalinks are made accessible from the "three dot" menu even when people are not logged in. This will make finding lists and sharing information about them much easier.
