  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.

  2. Enable Process and Enrich Citations to run as a scheduled job

    This job needs to be run on a regular basis to ensure that all citations are linked to repository records, but this must currently be done manually by a member of library staff. It would be very useful if the job could be scheduled to run automatically.

  3. Display tags on page showing multiple lists a citation appears on

    When you click on the "Demand in other lists, other courses" alert, the subsequent page (screenshot included) presents you with a table of all other lists where a citation appears. It would be really useful if this table displayed the tags associated with the citation on each list.

    We use tags to inform our purchasing quantities, so when currently reviewing lists, we are having to go in and view the citation on each individual list to check for tags.

  4. Customise Leganto Reading lists using CSS

    We would like to be able to adjust a CSS stylesheet to tweak the visual styling of the the Leganto reading lists. We have received feedback regarding the sizing of some important elements on the pages, especially the View Online link. We would like to be able to make this link more obvious to users.

  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…

  6. 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.

  7. Public Note formatting in "View full note"

    If you expand a Public Note that has exceeded the space limit by clicking "Click to view full note" in citation brief view, the original text formatting isn't included. This makes longer public notes difficult to read, since it excludes line-breaks and paragraphs.

    We believe it would improve the user experience if the original formatting, that is visible in full view, is transferred in brief view, View full note, as well.

  8. Enable reading list items to be added to a PO line.

    It would be helpful if items on order could be assigned to a reading list from the PO line by acquisitions staff and the reading list module information be a part of the PO line information.

  9. DCS Synchronise job to run more frequently

    The DCS Synchronise job can currently only be scheduled to run once every day at 23:00. It would be helpful if this job could be scheduled to run more frequently throughout the day, for example every 4 hours. This would streamline the DCS integration and allow requests to be updated and made available more quickly.

    For example, if an urgent digitisation request has been processed via the DCS, it will not update on the reading list in Leganto until later on in the evening, unless staff manually update the citation using the Update DCS status action. If the job could…

  10. Allow users (especially students) to add a note when link is marked as broken

    When checking the broken link alerts each morning we often have to email the users to diagnose their access issues. It would save time if the user could add a short note at the point when they click 'Mark as broken'.

  11. Report of instructors having opted in or out for notifications

    In Leganto, instructors can opt in or out to receive email notifications on events. In order to know to what degree we can rely on these for communications (and under what circumstances we need to approach the instructor by other means) we would like to create a report in Analytics (or in Alma) to see which instructors have opted in or out.

  12. Show all user IDs where more than one user reports broken citation link

    The Edit Citations area in Alma only shows the user ID of the most recent user to mark a citation link as broken. If more than one user has marked the same link as broken then this is shown by a number, but you cannot see the previous user IDs.

    This is hugely problematic for our team as we try to follow up with all users by email, either to let them know that a broken link has been fixed or to ask for more information for troubleshooting purposes.

  13. 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/ .

  14. Enable translation of reading list texts

    The Leganto UI supports multiple languages, which is very helpful. It is however not possible to translate individual texts of reading lists, such as their titles, into different languages.

    Please enable the following:


    1. A way to easily input in multiple (at least two) languages a) reading list titles, b) section names, c) citation public notes, d) section notes, and e) possibly other such reading list related texts that are not part of the bibliographic metadata.


    2. That the relevant translated text (as per above) be displayed depending on what language the user has selected for the UI in the Leganto language…

  15. Allow Leganto to display different general messages to different user groups

    Leganto February 2021 release included an Ideas Exchange introducing:
    “Two new parameters allow you to define when and to whom the value in the general message parameter will display…The new generalmessagerole parameter allows you to specify that the value in the general_message parameter will display only for the user role indicated”

    The University of New South Wales welcomes this enhancement. We believe that the ability to display a different message simultaneously in both Leganto Instructor and Student environments improves this communication functionality further.
    This provides the benefit of varying the wording of messages aimed at differing target groups.

  16. Display physical / electronic availability for citations in Analytics (Course Reserves and Instructor Usage subject areas)

    Physical (print) and electronic (ebook) availability cannot be added as columns in these Analytics subject areas. This would be hugely beneficial for most of our daily reports and workflows as we try to ensure that a certain number of copies or electronic versions are available for resources added to reading lists.

    An additional requirement is for availability to be shown for records related to the citation. This is because we have separate title records for physical (print) holdings and electronic (ebook) portfolios, and use the related_records parameter in Leganto Customer Settings to display availability for all available formats at citation…

  18. Importance tags - limit to one per citation

    We use importance tags to inform our purchasing, but often encounter citations which have been given multiple tags. We would find it useful to be able to configure the system to allow only one importance tag per citation.

  19. Stopping list creation from Leganto interface

  20. Identify more recent editions for reading list citations

    Each year reading lists and citation are rolled over to the new academic year. During the years the library acquires more recent editions of course materials, however instructors are not by default being notified of these new editions. A kind of 'identify other editions' job/feature for active reading lists could be interesting.

    Of course 'matching' criteria to identify possible new (more recent) editions need to be well defined, but we strongly believe we can benefit from this feature to maintain up to date reading lists in an efficient way!
