  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. 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

  3. Return people to page once logged in

    We have an open search page for Leganto and make our lists open as well. Because of this people will often find lists in different ways i.e. not just following the link from the VLE.

    If you find a list that is open and then log in, or if you are on the open search page and log in, you are always taken to the "My lists" screen.

    I propose that when you log in you are returned to the page you started on i.e. if you are on a list page and log in you are returned to the…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Custom Analytics 'Reports' within Leganto interface for instructors

    Currently the 'Reports' link (attached) in Leganto just links to an 'out the box' analytics dashboard displaying a range of usage information.

    It would be useful to be able to define a path to our own Analytics dashboard in an Alma code table, e.g. in Fulfilment > Leganto > Customer Settings.

    Our analytics report would be set to receive filters/parameters from Leganto, i.e. reading list codes.

    Academic engagement forms a significant part of the work we do with reading lists, so being able to be flexible and responsive to their needs/wishes in terms of usage of their lists would definitely…

  7. Option to reset the usage statistics without doing a rollover

    We have not used the rollover function in Leganto. Our main concern is that permalinks made in the VLE to sections/citations would no longer work. We have no way of checking where permalinks are in use.

    The main thing that we would want to gain from performing a rollover each academic year is to reset the usage statistics which are on view to instructors back to zero, together with any student comments and likes. We are not particularly concerned to create new copies of a course as there is nothing to distinguish one year's module from the next in our…

  8. Improve mechanisms for reading list subject tag assignment and reporting

    Ensuring that our reading lists have subject tags assigned is labour intensive without appropriate mechanisms to identify and batch update lists. We rely on our academic staff to assign these as we are not resourced to trawl through Leganto or Alma looking to see if they have a subject, or could use better subject tags. Suggestions:

    Add Reading List Subject to Analytics Course Reserves; Leganto Instructor Usage; Leganto Student Usage - to report/identify lists that have no subject assigned, or investigate impact when considering relabelling a subject

    Add Subject Tag as a facet in Alma - If the list of…

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Extend shelf recommendations to include ebooks

    In the July 2018 release notes a new feature was described for showing shelf other titles located on the same or adjacent shelves near the citation.
    In Primo we have the virtual browse configured to include ebooks that have an LC classification in the bib record. We think the shelf recommendations in Leganto should be extended to accommodate ebooks in a similar way. Especially as more of our budget is going to online books.

    I logged a case asking for it, and Ex Libris has indicated that it sounds beneficial for other other customers, and requested that we garner support…

  12. Improved Citation Alert Management Functionality for UI

    It would streamline the workflow significantly if Citation Alert Notes which are represented by the green dot in the Reading List View could include what contents of the Note actually are. This would save the workflow 3 extra clicks into the citation to edit it, checking the Notes Tab and having to then back out again to the Reading List. There is also significant work in having to clear an Alert once seen and or action, where the staff member has to select the citation, scroll to the top of the list, choose the Actions Menu, and select the Remove…

  13. Add student level activity to Leganto reports

    Academics would like to track student usage of Leganto reading lists as an indicator for students who are at risk of under-performing or dropping out of courses.
    A way of identifying students who are not reading or participating on the Leganto list would be useful.

  14. 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.

  15. citation tag manage purchase request

    Can the 'Citation tags' facet/filter also be added to the 'Manage Purchase Requests' screen.

    To provide context, the citation tags we have created ourselves are 'Essential', 'Core', Further Reading', 'Distance Learning', 'Recommended' and so on. Our reading list team will want to complete all purchase requests, however, they may wish to process purchase requests marked essential, before moving onto the Core reading etc. Or have different team members working through different citation tags. Having this facet in 'Manage Purchase Requests' will allow the team to prioritise particular requests over others.

    Feels like a small feature to implement, but will have…

  16. Suppress tags from specified citation material types

    We would like to be able to hide certain tags from specific material types, for example hide our 'Digitisation request' tag from citations which are already available electronically.

  17. Enable the user to focus on the relevant sections, based on the date

    If the list is built by week, by default all sections relevant to the past will be collapsed. Only the current week's section and future sections will be expanded, by default.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…
