  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. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Service Temporarily Unavailable Message from Primo to appear in Leganto

    In Alma, you can configure a "Service Temporarily Unavailable" message via the service labels. This can then be applied to electronic collections in Alma, and displays when viewed in Primo.

    As this functionality already exists in Alma/Primo, I feel it should be extended to appear in Leganto as well, otherwise Users are not getting information about services being unavailable.

  6. 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/ .

  7. 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.

  8. Who published the list should be displayed in Reading List Information in Alma

    Information about the person who published the reading list is poorly accessible. It can be found under Recent Changes in the Reading List in Alma, but it can disappear if the log is too long. We would like it to be clearly visible on the Reading List level and placed next to the Review Requester field.

    We need this solution for better reporting and list management. We believe that this should be an easy fix, as all of the information is already available in the system.

  9. Add a librarian/reviewer field to Reading List in Alma

    We would like to have a possibility to add information about librarian/reviewer (a person who is responsible for processing the list) or list coordinator (someone who distributes/assigns lists to reviewers in a particular department) to reading list in Alma. It should be an editable field, available for rollover, and visible in Analytics in Course Reserves Subject Area.

    In the future this information can be used to configure the following auto-assign-workflow: when the list owner sends a list to the library, the list changes its status to Ready for processing, Reviewer/Coordinator is activated as an assignee, and a message about auto-assign…

  10. Add information about who published the list to Course Reserves SA in Analytics

    Information about the person who published the list should be added to Course Reserves Subject Area in Analytics. We need this solution for better reporting and list management.

    Right now, information about the person who published the reading list is poorly accessible.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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…

  14. Rejected Purchase Request - not detaching brief BIB in Alma Course Reserves

    If we place a Purchase Request through Alma Course Reserves - the system generates a brief BIB with MMS ID against the citation. But if the Purchase Request is Rejected, the brief BIB is deleted from Alma (proper) but not from Alma Course Reserves and the citation remains resource located against the brief BIB that will not be fulfilled.

    Currently, we are manually detaching these citations but do think that if the brief BIB is deleting in Alma proper it should be reflecting in Alma Course Reserve.

    Can the brief BIB be removed from the citation in Alma Course Reserves…

  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…

  17. allow course archiving as well as reading list

    The title says it all. Alma allows you to archive reading lists, which is useful--this leaves them as reportable in Analytics but removes them from Alma -- however strangely this function does not exist for at the course level, including the course that contains any archived reading lists. Since we get new course records every semester, this leaves a lot of expired courses that our reserves staff have to wade through, and makes this archiving feature note very useful for the course management workflow. If you deleted courses, any reading lists that had been archived would disappear from Analytics.

    I…

  18. Instructor role - view reading list status from Leganto

    With the instructor role, the reading list status is not displayed when working on the list from Leganto.
    We find it very necessary for the instructor to know at all times what state the reading list is in so that when the process is finished, he can publish the list. We ask that this privilege be included in the instructor role.

  19. Hide locations from Resource Locate

    Hide locations from Resource Locate

    We would like an option to filter out specific locations for the resource locate functionality in Leganto.

    For legal reasons we can't purge lost/discarded items, they have to remain in Alma where they are collected in locations that are suppressed from discovery so they don't show up in Primo. Unfortunately that doesn't exclude them from being used as positive results for resource locating even though they are not actually available.

    We also have several collections that are not accessible to people but (some of them) show up in Primo. Those are also items we wouldn't…
