  1. 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.

  2. Bulk updating of citations across reading lists

    Situation
    One of our tasks in checking reading lists is ensuring that the version of each title is the latest edition. Acquisitions staff will check book citations on a reading list and, if there is a newer edition available, purchase and replace the citation on the list with this new version.

    Problem
    When a specific title is used on multiple lists, Acquisitions staff are having to manually identify all citations using this title, add the newer edition to the reading list, and remove the older edition from the reading list.

    Staff are also having to manually transfer any specific reading/public/resource…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.…

  5. 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,…

  6. The system don't sort correctly the citations without principal author

    When we order a list by author, If you don't have a princial author, it does it wrong. We would like it to be possible to order taking into account field 700 "Additional person name".

    At this time, if there is no principal author, it orders it randomly and it is not a behavior that we want.

  7. 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?

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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/ .

  12. 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."

  13. Include text of Library Discussion Note in Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter

    Could the actual text of the Library Discussion Note be included for Instructors when they receive a Notification that there is an outstanding Library Discussion via the Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter.

    Currently, the Letter only tells the Instructor that there is a Library Discussion waiting for them. They then need to log-in to Leganto to see what it is. Providing the text would enable the Instructor to determine whether they need to log-in to Leganto and action something in the list or not, and would bring the letter in line with other email notifications e.g. service desk messages, where they…

  14. 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…

  15. HTML in list notes and list and sections' description fields

    In some cases, an instructor needs to provide extra information to their student by referring to an external website.
    Use case: "All the citations in this section cannot be booked through the library but can be found in the compendium. More information <a>here</a>."

    It would be very useful to use HTML in the list notes, or in the description field of the list or sections. Both so instructors can use links, but also to make the information more visible if it comes after a long list of citations (in the case of a list note).

  16. Add option to edit source URLs in bulk

    The option to manually add static URLs to citations is extremely helpful. We use it in various ways, but mainly to point users directly to the resource when it is not possible to do it automatically. However, managing manually added URLs is a nightmare due to the lack of functionality in this area. Whenever an URL needs to be changed (e.g. an EZproxy prefix has to be removed etc.), it must be changed manually.

    We would like to have a possibility to search for and replace/delete part of the citation's source URL by running a job on a set of…

  17. My Collection enhancements

    Our instructors are big fans of My Collection but they are missing features that are available for lists:

    1) Sections or folders. Having tags is nice but in no way the same thing

    2) Drag & Drop citations to re-order the list. Goes together with 1) - at the moment there is no way to bring structure to My Collection which makes it cluttered and takes the joy out of working with it.

    3) Separate the menu options into "Suggest item for a list" and "Add item to a list" so that there is a clear distinction between adding something…

  18. 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...

  19. 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.

  20. Add option to add multilingual 'Guided Videos' links

    There is only one Video URL field in the Guided Videos mapping table. We are a bilingual library and users switch the interface depending on which language they wish to use.

    To add bilingual guided videos to Leganto, the only option we have is to add Welsh and English links in the same table so that users will see a long list of both options rather than just the links that correspond to their preferred language.

    We would like to see an option to add multilingual video links.
