  1. Add Citation ID as column to Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area in Analytics

    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…

          • Save a selection of Citation menu option as the default view

            When entering Citation view to process current course reserves, you must first always select from the List Assigned to menu "Assigned to me" and then apply various other filters to limit the view to what needs to be processed. It takes time to apply each filter each time the citations list is accessed; allowing some filters to be "sticky" or default according to processor preference would save time when processing citation requests.

            • Sort list should retain selected value

              Currently if you choose a "sort list" option in the Leganto front end (e.g., "list title") then click into a list and then click the "back" button, the sort list option defaults to "My lists on top".

              It would be preferable if the sort list value chosen by the user remains.

              • Allow quick linking back to reading list from citations view

                From citations view, if we need to access the associated reading list in order to make any changes, we must follow a very complicated path to get back to said reading list. This path is very click-intensive.

                Preferred functionality would be for the Reading list entry in each citation (in Citations view) to be a hyperlink which resolves directly back to said reading list for quicker processing.

                • Make a list complete automatically if all of the items on the list are complete

                  When processing a reading list, library staff set each individual item as complete as they arrive for the reserve shelf and are ready to be used. Library staff must then take an additional step to mark the entire list as complete, even though each individual item has already been marked as complete.

                  Currently functionality requires the reserves managers to find outstanding requests by reading list and not by outstanding citation when more than one person works on reserves. This results in a very time-intensive process for units who hold reserves on a large scale.

                  Desired functionality is to have the…

                  • Analytics – allow student usage to be measured by any specified date range

                    We would like to be able to specify any date range (e.g. 1-30/09/2018) for this Student Usage Subject Area. Currently in Alma/Leganto Analytics, student usage statistics can only be measured by week (starting on Mondays). The enhancement would give us more flexibility in reporting to senior management. This also helps us to align/merge student usage reports with reports from other subject areas (or other systems such as Moodle, Google Analytics), which are not restricted to weeks.

                    Other scenarios where this enhancement would help:
                    - Monthly/yearly reports
                    - Reports to compare usage before/after functionality/configuration/workflow changes on a specific day

                    • 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…

                      • Add additional filtering options in Citations view

                        When working in Citations view, we frequently have the need to know which citations belong to which processing department in order to batch process citations. Currently functionality does now allow us to view citations by processing department. Therefore we must instead go into each reading list in order to investigate which citations are not yet marked as compete. It would be much more efficient to be able to filter on and view a complete list of citations that need attention.

                        We also use the term field to help differentiate courses. Neither the reading lists view nor the citations view allows…

                          • 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?

                            • 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

                              • Add events (citation modifications, etc) by library staff to Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area in Analytics

                                Currently the Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area only identifies events created by list collaborators. At our institution, library staff are also responsible for making modifications to lists and citations (for example, adding tags), however these actions are not displayed as 'events' on analyses created in this subject area.

                                As previously discussed with Ex Libris (see SF 00523008), it would be useful for our workflows if both instructor and library staff events could display in this subject area (perhaps under separate descriptors).

                                • Ability to search for and delete Courses that do not have a Reading List attached

                                  To ensure that the LTI link works between our LMS and Alma we have to create a Course Record for all units that utilise the LMS. This results in thousands of Course Records being created in Alma each semester. However since not all units in the LMS use a Reading List only a fraction of these Course Records eventually have a Reading List attached. Therefore we have a lot of empty Course Records in Alma cluttering up the Course area in Alma and resulting in some confusion for Library staff in identifying active, current courses.

                                  This problem will only continue…

                                  • Leganto Instructor Rollover - Allow citation "Additional Resource Information" to be copied to the rolled over list

                                    As library staff, I would like the "Additional Resource Information" for Citations to be copied to the rolled over list, so that I can keep the additional sources for the citation (in addition to the source in the Resource Information area) I manually added to citations in the original list.

                                    Current Behaviour:
                                    1. Rollover the list
                                    2. Find out which Citations have Additional Resource Information
                                    3. Manually add the "Additional Resource Information" source information to the Citations in the rolled over list

                                    Proposed Behaviour;
                                    1. Rollover the list, Additional Resource Information is copied through to the new list

                                    • Leganto Instructor Rollover - Allow Library Internal Notes to be copied to the rolled over list

                                      As library staff, I would like the Library Internal Notes to be copied to the rolled over list, so that I can keep the information I recorded in original list.

                                      Internal Notes for a Citation or a Reading List may include:
                                      - special copyright/license information,
                                      - special considerations/actions
                                      - historical decisions or agreements

                                      • 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…

                                          User Story: As an instructor, I would like to have the option to add a citation to My Collection or other reading lists from the Search Library results in current reading list or My Collection (similar to adding an item from cite it), so that I don’t have to go in and out of My Collection/reading list to add a citation
