  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…

    • Adding metadata to the pop-up window, when asked to confirm deletion of a reference in a reading list

      We've had feed-back from one of our instructors that it would be useful to have some metadata (title, author etc.) in the window that opens, when confirming that you like to delete a reference in a reading list. This is in order to be sure you delete the correct reference.
      Would that be possible?

      Thank you.

      • 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

        • Additional automatic citation status configuration for purchase and resource charing requests

          We would like to be able to configure an automatic status change for citations where a purchase request has been submitted, or a resource sharing request submitted. In these cases we would like the citation's status to change to "In Process"

          • 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?

            • 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…

              • 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".…

                • Add a new parent field to group academic/processing departments

                  Please find attached high level design about the ability to create academic units which may group several academic and/or processing departments.
                  Please review the document and let us know if you have any remark. We would like to get your feedback if processing department is relevant here.

                  Many thanks,

                  • Duplicating lists - navigate automatically to new list

                    When a user duplicates a list we would expect Leganto to navigate automatically to the newly created (duplicated) list rather than the original list.

                    This has caused confusion for some users, who do not realise that they need to navigate to 'My Lists' in order to find their duplicated list. This has resulted in lots of duplicate draft lists appearing in our system which are not required.

                    • 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).

                      • 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

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                            • Default item type for e journal articles

                              When adding a Primo Central electronic journal article title to a readings list, the type defaults to article rather than electronic article.
                              This would then be more obvious to instructors and students that they are looking at an electronic article instead of a physical article.

                              • 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…

                                • 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…

                                    In adding the +ReadingList widget to the bookmark manager of a browser, you need a two-step process. First click the widget from one's Leganto settings menu and click again on the widget button from the pop-up window. This is more of a user experience issue, many if unfamiliar will choose to drag the widget after clicking on the menu settings and will drag the URL instead of clicking another time to wait for the pop-out window to drag the right widget with the javascript (see below).

                                    • 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…

                                          We would like to control the order of display of the File Upload Copyright Options and to be able to set which one is the default option.

                                          There is no configuration to do this currently in the File Upload Copyright Options table
