  1. Who published the list should be displayed in Reading List Information in Alma

    Information about the person who published the reading list is poorly accessible. It can be found under Recent Changes in the Reading List in Alma, but it can disappear if the log is too long. We would like it to be clearly visible on the Reading List level and placed next to the Review Requester field.

    We need this solution for better reporting and list management. We believe that this should be an easy fix, as all of the information is already available in the system.

  2. Add a librarian/reviewer field to Reading List in Alma

    We would like to have a possibility to add information about librarian/reviewer (a person who is responsible for processing the list) or list coordinator (someone who distributes/assigns lists to reviewers in a particular department) to reading list in Alma. It should be an editable field, available for rollover, and visible in Analytics in Course Reserves Subject Area.

    In the future this information can be used to configure the following auto-assign-workflow: when the list owner sends a list to the library, the list changes its status to Ready for processing, Reviewer/Coordinator is activated as an assignee, and a message about auto-assign…

  3. Public Note formatting in "View full note"

    If you expand a Public Note that has exceeded the space limit by clicking "Click to view full note" in citation brief view, the original text formatting isn't included. This makes longer public notes difficult to read, since it excludes line-breaks and paragraphs.

    We believe it would improve the user experience if the original formatting, that is visible in full view, is transferred in brief view, View full note, as well.

  4. Add information about who published the list to Course Reserves SA in Analytics

    Information about the person who published the list should be added to Course Reserves Subject Area in Analytics. We need this solution for better reporting and list management.

    Right now, information about the person who published the reading list is poorly accessible. It can be found under Recent Changes in the Reading List in Alma, but it can disappear if the log is too long. We would like it to be clearly visible on the Reading List level (registered as a separate idea https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/43545540-who-published-the-list-should-be-displayed-in-read) and available in Analytics.

  5. DCS Synchronise job to run more frequently

    The DCS Synchronise job can currently only be scheduled to run once every day at 23:00. It would be helpful if this job could be scheduled to run more frequently throughout the day, for example every 4 hours. This would streamline the DCS integration and allow requests to be updated and made available more quickly.

    For example, if an urgent digitisation request has been processed via the DCS, it will not update on the reading list in Leganto until later on in the evening, unless staff manually update the citation using the Update DCS status action. If the job could…

  6. allow course archiving as well as reading list

    The title says it all. Alma allows you to archive reading lists, which is useful--this leaves them as reportable in Analytics but removes them from Alma -- however strangely this function does not exist for at the course level, including the course that contains any archived reading lists. Since we get new course records every semester, this leaves a lot of expired courses that our reserves staff have to wade through, and makes this archiving feature note very useful for the course management workflow. If you deleted courses, any reading lists that had been archived would disappear from Analytics.

    I…

  7. Report of instructors having opted in or out for notifications

    In Leganto, instructors can opt in or out to receive email notifications on events. In order to know to what degree we can rely on these for communications (and under what circumstances we need to approach the instructor by other means) we would like to create a report in Analytics (or in Alma) to see which instructors have opted in or out.

  8. Allow Leganto to display different general messages to different user groups

    Leganto February 2021 release included an Ideas Exchange introducing:
    “Two new parameters allow you to define when and to whom the value in the general message parameter will display…The new generalmessagerole parameter allows you to specify that the value in the general_message parameter will display only for the user role indicated”

    The University of New South Wales welcomes this enhancement. We believe that the ability to display a different message simultaneously in both Leganto Instructor and Student environments improves this communication functionality further.
    This provides the benefit of varying the wording of messages aimed at differing target groups.

  9. Rejected Purchase Request - not detaching brief BIB in Alma Course Reserves

    If we place a Purchase Request through Alma Course Reserves - the system generates a brief BIB with MMS ID against the citation. But if the Purchase Request is Rejected, the brief BIB is deleted from Alma (proper) but not from Alma Course Reserves and the citation remains resource located against the brief BIB that will not be fulfilled.

    Currently, we are manually detaching these citations but do think that if the brief BIB is deleting in Alma proper it should be reflecting in Alma Course Reserve.

    Can the brief BIB be removed from the citation in Alma Course Reserves…

  10. Importance tags - limit to one per citation

    We use importance tags to inform our purchasing, but often encounter citations which have been given multiple tags. We would find it useful to be able to configure the system to allow only one importance tag per citation.

  11. Identify more recent editions for reading list citations

    Each year reading lists and citation are rolled over to the new academic year. During the years the library acquires more recent editions of course materials, however instructors are not by default being notified of these new editions. A kind of 'identify other editions' job/feature for active reading lists could be interesting.

    Of course 'matching' criteria to identify possible new (more recent) editions need to be well defined, but we strongly believe we can benefit from this feature to maintain up to date reading lists in an efficient way!

  12. Instructor role - view reading list status from Leganto

    With the instructor role, the reading list status is not displayed when working on the list from Leganto.
    We find it very necessary for the instructor to know at all times what state the reading list is in so that when the process is finished, he can publish the list. We ask that this privilege be included in the instructor role.

  13. Support http protocol in reading list and section description fields

    At the moment URLs in the description fields of reading lists and sections are handled as plain text whereas URLs in public notes are automatically recognized as links and behave as such.
    We'd like to see this functionality for all text fields in the Leganto UI. URLs should always be clickable links.

  14. Allow website to be default CiteIt! material type rather than Other

    When checking lists created by academics, when they use Citeit! and if the site is not recognised/supported, the default material type chosen by Citeit! is "Other", but other is not very helpful when almost all of the time the material type is effectively website at least by definition. It would be useful if it was possible to configure it to default non-recignised/supported websites to be added as Website citation material type (non repository citations added via CiteIt!) as it would save Library staff having to edit these for no real benefit, either in terms of metadata checks, or in terms…

  15. Limit the number of times an importance tag can be used on a reading list

    We would find it very useful to set a limit on the number of times a tag can be used on a list – for example to configure tags so that only one item per reading list can be tagged as Core. We use this tag to flag items requested for our eTextbook Programme and this would help us avoid the issue of multiple Core-tagged items.

  16. Automatic enrichment (update) of reading list citations

    We are looking at using Rialto and ordering from Leganto looks to be a good option as Academics can place requests (Purchase requests) through the system. Ideally we would like the entry in Leganto to update the citation and status automatically once a bib is attached to the citation.

  17. Show or hide individual General Electronic Services in Leganto

    It is currently possible to control when General Electronic services display in Primo / Primo VE using Display Logic Rules. However, these rules only allow you to make decisions based on data in the record being displayed.

    It would be good to have parameters in the Display Logic Rules that would allow showing or hiding a service based on which display the record is being displayed in (Primo VE vs Leganto).

    In many cases, we want some of the Primo GES's to appear in Leganto, but not all of them. In the current setup, we don't have the granularity to…

  18. External Job Notifications

    It would be great if Leganto was able to send external email notifications once a job is complete i.e. Course Load and Enrollment Load. This would eliminate the need for a user to manually go into Leganto to validate jobs, especially if the uploads are using an FTP server and running under a recurrence.

    An email notification would be sent to either a user's email or company email distribution list that would include the status of the job - successful or completed with errors.

    A nice to have would be for the email to include the Event Descriptions.

  19. Real time integration for course updates between Blackboard and Alma/Leganto

    A real time integration between the VLE system Blackboard and Alma/Leganto would be beneficial to allow course information to be updated instantaneously within Alma/Leganto, without having to wait for the next course load to run.

    Although APIs are available for creating and updating courses, these require local set up and resource. It would be beneficial if standard integrations could be developed for course updates directly between the most commonly used systems e.g. Blackboard, meaning that when a change is made to a course in the VLE this is then automatically reflected in Alma and Leganto.

    This would also be useful…

  20. Add a "Set complete" option for Library staff to the Edit Multiple items options

    In November 2020 the Edit Multiple Items option was added to the Leganto interface. One option which would really help Library staff when processing and checking lists would be to add the "Set Complete" option (only visible to Library staff) to the bulk options (delete, add notes, visibility dates etc.)
