  1. ‘Other Formats and Editions’ in student view

    We would like all editions of a book to be visible to students, similar to the function ‘Other Formats and Editions’. Ideally, they would have accessible links to display these editions in our Library catalogue.

  2. NEW UI: Deactivate the "due date" field and the “hide” check button in “Information for students” section

    We want to be able to deactivate the due date field and the “hide” check button in the “Information for students” section when adding a citation using a Manual Entry or when adding a citation through the “search the library” function.
    Once published, our citations must always be visible to all students. At our institution, Leganto Lists are mandatory for all our instructors because students should always have access to the lists and the ones that refer to previous academic years. If an instructor assigns a due date or hides a citation, it would be a problem for students who…

  3. More detailed 'Recent Changes' tab

    The number of changes recorded in the Recent Changes tab is limited. We'd like to see a complete log of changes in the reading list. For example, we'd like to see if a comment in the Library Discussion has been deleted (and in what citation). Also possibly if a citation has been located to a different MMSID. In Alma and Analytics we can see the Last Modification date and Modified By, but we do not know what the modification was unless it is recorded in Recent Changes.

  4. More frequent notifications for Library Discussion Notes

    Library Discussion Notes are a great way to communicate with faculty about the status of resources cited in reading lists. However, notifications about new notes are only delivered once per day at midnight using the detailed notifications letter. This delays response times. A more frequent schedule for Library Discussion Notes, such as hourly, would be much more efficient and useful for faculty and staff.

  5. Add parameter "no list expected" to make sets and global changes to courses via "Course bulk update" job

    A few monts ago, Alma added the option "no list expected" to the courses. This parameter can only be searched through Analytics, but we want to:
    -make it available in Alma to refine searches when making sets.
    -be an option to make global changes to courses in the "course bulk update" job

    Example: I want to make a set with all courses that belong to an academic department and the parameter "no list expected" is unchecked.
    Then, I want to make global changes to mark "no list expected" in all courses of this set.

  6. Availability of “Request digitization”: Take item policies and existence of a digitization department into account

    In the Leganto UI, the option “request digitization” is sometimes displayed although digitization is actually not possible. There are two different cases:

    1. he item belongs to a library without digitization department.
      If an item belongs to a library without digitization department, the option “request digitization” is still available in the associated citation in Leganto. If an instructor tries to send a digitization request for such an item, an error message is displayed.

    2. The item has an item policy that does not allow digitization.
      If an item associated with a citation in Leganto has a “no copy” item policy, the option…

  7. Multi Course Export

    Leganto currently allows instructors the ability to export a single class list to Excel. We’re asking for an expansion of that ability to allow librarians and/or faculty to export lists from a set of multiple classes at once.

    Use Cases:
    Program Review, this would allow program chairs or deans to review materials in use across their student’s course of study. This would let them analyze their data to identify materials for update and understand when citations overlap to provide a top down view of their program.

    Instructor review, this would allow instructors to easily review the citations used in their…

  8. Additional brief citation information for instructors - New UI

    Can the brief citation view for Instructors in the new Leganto UI be made the same as the student view, where all citation details are visible? Currently if there are multiple editions of the same book, or material with very similar titles it is very hard to quickly tell them apart as only the title is visible. If a new instructor has to review an existing reading list, it takes them much more time in the new UI as they have to open each citation to see complete details.

    This also affects processing staff who work in Leganto, who are…

  9. Deactivate filters in “lists” area and filters related to citations inside the lists

    We would like to have the possibility to deactivate filters in “lists” area and filters related to citations inside the lists.
    Some of these types of filters are not relevant for us.

    For Examples:

    CITATION FILTERS:
    - DUE DATE: no due date in our workflows. Once published, lists and citations have to be always available to our patrons.
    - STATUS: citation status are related to the activities carry out by librarians, instructors don’t need to see them
    LIST FILTERS:
    - COURSE STATUS: the distinction between active and inactive course is not relevant for us
    - LIST TYPE: we automatically create…

  11. Adding tags from Cite it

    Currently there is no way to add tags at the same time as you create a citation from Cite it. You have to first add the citation to the list, then open the list, find the citation and finally add tags. This is a cumbersome and inefficient process that could be improved.

    Cite it has other features that allow you to add public notes, due dates and creative commons licenses to your citations. These features are not as widely used as tags, but they are available at the time of creating a citation. Having the ability to add tags at…

  12. Zotero/ Mendeley Import: Add option to select a folder/ a collection

    In Zotero and Mendeley, users can organize their references in folders or collections. In Leganto, however, citations from reference management systems can only be imported at the library level (everything). Especially for users with extensive reference collections, it would be much clearer if a specific folder or a specific collection could be selected when importing citations into Leganto.

  13. Add option to import citations in bulk to "Search the Library" and "Import References"

    Currently, it is only possible to add one single citation at a time to a reading list when using "Search the Library" or "Import References from Zotero/from Mendeley". It would be very convenient if instructors could select multiples citations in the results list and import them in bulk into the reading list.

  14. Task Widget Filtered by Processing Department

    UNSW is a library with multiple processing departments and during peak Leganto processing times clicking through the Task Widget - Reading Lists/Citations to identify the workload for each dept creates an additional step in the process.

    We do have the ability to filter the Reading Lists etc. by Processing Department once we have clicked on the option in the list, for e.g. Unassigned - Ready for Processing, however it would be helpful if those filters could be applied to the main menu Task Widget - Reading Lists/Citations, visible on the ALMA home page, so that only the options requiring our…

  15. Add Workflow Notes to Reading List Citation Slips

    Currently, Reading list citation slips are not configured to include Workflow Notes, which means processing instructions are not included on the pull slips and that information must be retrieved separately. It would expedite reading list processing to have Workflow Notes included in these slips (which currently include basic bibliographic information, call number, and bar code).

  16. Leganto Link Marked As Broken Letter - include reporting user metadata

    It would be helpful if the user who reported a broken citation link was included in the Leganto Link Marked As Broken Letter XML. That way, we could include it in the email staff receive. It would save time and effort, compared to looking this information up in the Alma alert.

  17. Suggest Replacement feature - keep book extract or chapter information

    When using the Suggest Replacement feature for book extract or chapter citations, the data in the chapter and/or page range fields should be kept (rather than automatically deleted) if the suggestion is approved. When the suggestion is approved either from Leganto or Alma there should be an alert (like a pop-up box) to notify the user they may need to check the chapter/page range details on the suggested replacement.

    Alternatively, the user could be presented with an option to decide whether the chapter/extract information is kept or overwritten.

  19. Display Public Access Model message in Leganto

    At UNSW, we use portfolio’s Public Access Model to indicate if an eBook has unlimited or restricted access. The same message also shows in Primo so users are aware of the conditions before accessing eBooks.

    We believe the information will also benefit our Leganto users, but unfortunately, the message doesn’t display in Leganto, so we would like to propose the idea of displaying the Public Access Model message in Leganto.

    We raised a case with Ex Libris, but they said it is not part of their current development work plan.

  20. Scheduling the dates of visibility of citations/attachments in NUI

    We want to limit the dates between which citations or attachments can be viewed/downloaded. This is available in the classic interface but not in the new one.

    It is usefulI when you (librarian or instructor) want to prepare the complete reading list at the beginning of the course, to set the dates on which citations/attachments will be made visible to users. This is good when your course works with case studies in a big way, for example.
    In this situation, or similar, it is important because you are working with materials which students have to download and you don't want…
