  1. Automatically set Open Access citations to complete

    I'd like to propose a new functionality enabling citations that are open access to be set to "complete" (semi-)automatically.

    Having to go through all open citations and checking each for possible open access is a cumbersome and time consuming effort we (the library) would like to simplify.

    An "[ ] Open Access" checkbox within the Add Item menu, the citation and for Cite It! would enable instructors to do so themselves with little additional work on their side.

  2. Hide locations from Resource Locate

    Hide locations from Resource Locate

    We would like an option to filter out specific locations for the resource locate functionality in Leganto.

    For legal reasons we can't purge lost/discarded items, they have to remain in Alma where they are collected in locations that are suppressed from discovery so they don't show up in Primo. Unfortunately that doesn't exclude them from being used as positive results for resource locating even though they are not actually available.

    We also have several collections that are not accessible to people but (some of them) show up in Primo. Those are also items we wouldn't…

  3. Accessibility for Digital Items on Course Reserves

    Currently we are only able to add one file to a single citation. We would like to provide all the alternative electronic formats for scanned articles and book chapters to make sure that our electronic resources are more accessible. We have been testing with the Blackboard Ally program, which produces alternative electronic files of the following types: OCRedPDF, Tagged PDF, Audio, HTML, Electronic Braille, ePub and Beeline Reader. Another option for the future could be Leganto automatically making those file types available once you attach a scanned document. The file transforming tool we are currently using is at https://ally.ac/covid19/ .

  4. Autenticación de Leganto social login - Authentication of Leganto social login

    Incorporar autenticación de Leganto social login Google+, es algo que nuestra institución considera pertinente para el acceso de docentes y estudiantes, ya que todo acceso de nuestra comunidad es realizado por las credenciales institucionales en este caso el correo.

  5. Leganto: Have a Reference displayed for the resource in the style required eg APA7th

    There was a comment from an academic saying when their readings were in the Learning Management System they had the correct APA referencing style demonstrated, with the link to the reading – so students could see the correct format. And the academic was disappointed that the Leganto list didn’t demonstrate the referencing in the correct style. So we would propose that under the title of the resource in the Leganto list, the reference for the resource would be listed in APA6 (or probably APA7 now) format. Ideally it would be like Endnote – where we input the data in the…

  6. Multiple processing departments for instructor digitization requests

    Today, Leganto configuration includes a hardcoded processing department for instructor digitization requests.
    Idea: Define a new logic for auto-picking the digitization processing department from multiple departments.

  7. Message at login to users with unsupported Internet Explorer versions

    Many websites, such as Facebook, Youtube and Gmail are no longer supporting old versions of Internet Explorer. Older versions of Internet Explorer(IE) have security problems which will never be fixed and using it will leave you vulnerable to all sorts of problems on the internet.

    Suggestion: Users receive a message saying that their browser does not meet the minimum requirements for accessing Leganto upon trying to log in with an unsupported browser. They may still be able to log in, but will not be able to view/use Leganto effectively. This has been done for other systems, see for example the…

  8. Ability to add items from COLLECTIONS to LISTS.

    Right now, there isn't a direct way to add items from Collections to list sections, although you can add from List to Collection. I am not sure why, but it would be great if we can use the Collections section as a canvas, as my wonderful colleague Jane suggested, so there is flow between Lists<-->Collections. Ideally, it would be awesome if there was an option to do this with batch selection (having the ability to select multiple items with the tick box option as it is the case in Collection--see images).

  9. Include more search features in Leganto such as Subject Search, Sort by Newest, and more filter options that is available in Primo.

    Leganto Search box is limited in comparison to Primo which means we need to do more complex searches in Primo and then import/export selected items, which is quite tedious with large and non-specific results. Please allow individual libraries to provide the option to add more Primo features such as filters, sort, and advanced Subject Search.

  10. Ability to batch select and delete/copy/move citations in List sections (similar to Collections).

    COLLECTION has a tick box feature that allows you to select multiple items to delete/import/export. In the List Sections, there is no such feature. For larger lists, it is cumbersome to delete/move/copy citations because it has to be done individually. It would be very useful to have the batch selection feature.

  11. Enable translation of reading list texts

    The Leganto UI supports multiple languages, which is very helpful. It is however not possible to translate individual texts of reading lists, such as their titles, into different languages.

    Please enable the following:


    1. A way to easily input in multiple (at least two) languages a) reading list titles, b) section names, c) citation public notes, d) section notes, and e) possibly other such reading list related texts that are not part of the bibliographic metadata.


    2. That the relevant translated text (as per above) be displayed depending on what language the user has selected for the UI in the Leganto language…

  12. Add a Session Timeout URL config in Legnato

    Add an option in Leganto configuration where we can specify a "Session Timeout URL" so it is not just dependent on Alma settings. This variable is available in Primo. Since this is a student facing interface, it would be good to be able to configure this feature.

  13. Allow resource_locate_multiple_matches and resource_locate_multiple_matches_priority to take effect when locating single citation in Alma

    When resource locate is run on a single citation, Alma will only locate it if a single match is found; if there are no matches or multiple matches then the resource locate will fail and the citation's status will change to declined.

    The resource locate multiple match priority settings, which we use to prioritise electronic inventory, currently only apply when running resource locate in bulk using the Process and Enrich citations in Bulk job or when citations are added in Leganto by instructors. It does not apply when running resource locate on a single citation in Alma i.e. as happens…

  14. Associate new reading list from inside course with that course

    When a reading list is created from inside a course, it would help the instructor if the list would then automatically be associated with that course. Or at least be very easy to associate it with the course that the instructor is currently in.

    At this moment, the instructor is inside a course in Leganto. Adds a new reading list. Has to associate that reading list to a course all over again, while the instructor is already there.
    This is confusing for instructors.

    If any citations are marked as being prepared, In process or ready for processing include a warning if the list status is being marked as complete.

    If a copyright status is waiting for approval add a warning if citation status is being marked as complete.

  17. 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.

  19. Improve the Notification Type table in Alma

    The Notification type table can be displayed in different languages in Alma. However, after translating it, we realized it was not possible to upload a file with all the translations. We had to add each label manually.

    Another issue we encountered is that we were not able to distribute the table from our "Alma Network" instance to all the institutions in the consortium, which we do for examples with the label tables.

    Both these issue make it impossible for us to implement the translations for each institution as it would require too much work.

  20. Enable Process and Enrich Citations to run as a scheduled job

    This job needs to be run on a regular basis to ensure that all citations are linked to repository records, but this must currently be done manually by a member of library staff. It would be very useful if the job could be scheduled to run automatically.
