  1. More facets on the Reading Lists Task List

    Thank you for changing some filters into facets, but in order to make better use of this functionality, we would like to add more facets.
    It would be a great improvement if we could have Academic Department, Course Terms and Assignee as facets as well.
    Then we could easily sort the list to match each liasion librarians need for easy overview to his/her's Reading List Task List.
    The facets we have today doesn't help very much in order to filter the list into a manageable task list.
    Maybe it could be possible to customize the facets in the same way…

    • Develop an update process between the Parent record (ALMA) and the added appointment in Leganto

      It is important that they develop an update process between the Parent record and the added appointment in Leganto, that is, whenever there is an update or change in the records (MARC, holdins, items) of Alma that are referenced in the lists of reading Leganto. Currently these changes are not automatically updated in the reading lists . Por example we make changes at the classification level, in metadata and reading lists in Leganto are altered and we must re-reference or load the lists. It would be a excelllent if this process were automatic.
      Thank you

      • Leganto Instructor Rollover - Relocate "Roll Over List" to appear next to "SEND LIST" button

        As Library staff, I would like the Roll Over List button to be placed at a more obvious spot in Leganto, so instructors can easily find the button and Rollover their Lists with fewer clicks.

        UNSW Library will enable the Leganto Course Instructor Rollover in November 2018. We want instructors to use this feature, and not be confused with the Duplicate List option.

        Current Behavior:
        1. Instructor opens a Reading List in Leganto
        2. clicks on Reading list options menu option
        3. selects "Roll Over List", which is beneath "Duplicate List"
        Concerns:
        a. They need to know where the button…

        • Move Material type field to the top of the Editing form

          We think the field for material type should be moved to the top of the Editing form.
          This makes sense for several reasons.
          - It makes sense to define a document before registering it, and that’s where cataloguers start.
          - Different document types have different sets of fields, and choosing the material type first would ensure that the instructor starts registering in the correct form.
          - When changing the material type during the process, some fields may move or disappear, including fields the instructor had just been working on, leading to a poor user experience.
          - User creating a chapter…

          • Get an alert in Task list when a file is uploaded

            Instructors uploading a file together with a citation should trigger an alert: the library may want to control and check which files are published, due to copyright issues.

            • Move away from Reading Lists and toward embeddable documents!

              Canvas allows for professors to include content altogether on a weekly/unit basis (called Modules). Reading Lists doesn't respect that format and complicates instruction. We should be able to embed library resources directly into Canvas through an iframe/LTI into whichever Module we like.

              • Number of participants per campus more visible in Alma

                Please have a look at the attached document for full description with pictures.

                Hi,
                Here are a few suggestions regarding the number of participants as shown in Alma:
                1. When controlling a list where several campuses are involved, only the campuses are indicated, not the number of students per campus.
                We would like this information to be visible here. It would make it easier to decide if more copies should be bought, or if the library of another campus should have a look at the list.
                2. When associating a list to a course in Leganto, the information about the…

                • Add the citation ID to the citation display in Alma

                  You can currently search for citations in Alma by ID, but this number does not display on either the 'Edit Citations' (search) or Edit Reading List Citation screens. It is therefore impossible to know the citation ID number unless you obtain it via an Analytics report or by copying it from the end of the citation URL in Leganto. By having the citation ID immediately available in Alma we could greatly improve cross working between Leganto and Alma.

                  This idea has also been raised as an Alma NERS request (5709).

                  • Create reading lists by importing csv or xls formatted file to Alma

                    This will allow us to create lists in bulk and save considerable staff time spent creating lists manually and adding individual citations in Leganto or Alma.

                    • Move citations in bulk from a list to My Collection rather than only one by one

                      Moving citations one by one through the options menu is painful. Users should be able to move all citations in a list, or selected subsets of citations in a list to My Collection. The ability to select and copy all or select some and copy is a very common usability feature for list management.

                      This would really make My collection the easiest way to search and find previously used materials across course lists.

                      • Option to receive email notifications for new or changed citations submitted by instructors

                        We'd like the option to receive emailed notifications for new or changed citations submitted by instructors. This option should be configurable to allow Library staff to select either immediate notifications for each change or daily digests. Each reading list should have the option for staff to indicate whether if they'd like notifications for that list.

                            We'd like either a global option to set the default tab to All or an option for each user to select their own preference. This would improve the workflow for staff because they often collaborate on Reading Lists and searching from the All tab is preferable to searching from the other tabs.

                              • Move "+" sign

                                The "+" sign should be moved down to each section, and the default section should then be the section the click comes from. That is more intuitive. I am pretty sure 9 of 10 users starts looking in the sections for a way to add literature.

                                  The "Send list" button should be renamed "SAVE". It is far from obvious that this must be pressed in order to finalize the list (which I assume this button does?)

                                    Reports created in the Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area are not useful unless citations displayed can be easily identified and located in Alma. The best way to achieve this would be to provide Citation ID as a column in this subject area.

                                    • Reuse list button on splash screen

                                      When users first enter Leganto via the LTI, before they have created a list for the current course, they see a splash screen with options to Create a new list from scratch or upload a list. A better option would be to replace the Upload button with a Reuse button, so that it is easy for users to get to the right place to find previous lists to reuse. Reusing a list from a previous semester is by far the largest use case for our faculty, and the splash screen makes it very difficult to see how to do that.…

                                      • Enable Leganto users to "Unlike" citations

                                        Once a Leganto user has liked a citation, they are not able to change their mind and "unlike" it.

                                        Across social media the pattern is that “likes” can be removed – and this is what our students/instructors would expect.

                                        • In training, or in class when demonstrating the feature, and then wanting to reverse it
                                        • Accidentally clicking the Like
                                        • Liking a citation, and then realising it was a different one that you wanted to like
                                        • Liking a citation and then changing your mind

                                        Consideration should be given to whether liking/unliking is locked once a list is "inactive".…

                                        • Send List button enhancement

                                          In Q1 2019, we plan to have some modifications to the Leganto "send list" functionality.
                                          SEND LIST button in Leganto will only be enabled when a change made to the list after the last time it was send for review. If no change made in the list, the send button will be disabled.
                                          When SEND LIST is enabled and active, it will be more visible (i.e. animation) to attract the eye of the instructor.
                                          As part of this enhancement, we plan to entirely separate the Send List to Library functionality from the Publish List functionality.
                                          Currently, publishing a list also…
