  1. 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.

  2. Display module name / code / year alongside list title in Copy Section > Copy Into List dropdown menu

    This dropdown menu currently only displays lists by title. This is not useful in cases where the list has a generic title, e.g. 'Reading List', or if the same list has been rolled-over from previous years (there is no way to distinguish which list is for which year).

    It would be very useful if the module name, code and year could be displayed alongside the list title here.

  3. Showing "Related Items" to student users

    Please allow to shown the "related Items" to student users. A Professor just told us that he found it should be useful to students but his students are not able to see this part.

  4. Overview of readings lists in a study program

    Leganto gives the possibility to
    - link to a specific course (and display the list(s) associated to this course)
    - get an overview of all the reading lists belonging to a specific academic departments, through their course association

    The missing link in between is the association of a smaller number of courses, belonging to the same academic department or not:
    the study program.

    Librarians and instructors could associate courses to a study program as easily as they can associate a list to a course.
    Students could search for a program in the find list interface.
    An overview of all the…

  5. Display templates and other elements in the interface language

    In today's interface, if you want the same template in different languages, you have to either create one for each language, or remember to have both languages in the section title when creating the template.

    EX: Section 1: Obligatorisk/Mandatory

    Templates consist of a name, description and section names. The person creating the template could be given the option to translate these fields when creating the template. Of course, it would be an advantage if templates could be edited later on.

    All templates should be visible regardless of the interface language, but the template should be shown in the same language…

  7. Add a Leganto-specific email address after "Reply to" in notification letters

    Some institutions use a Leganto-specific email address, which they would like to add at the end of the Leganto notifications letters, where it says "Reply to" (see attachment).

    The address listed after that (Contact us) is a general email address for the library/institution.

    Not all of them may need to use different addresses but it would be nice to have the option.

    Could you consider making the necessary changes, and add a <leganto_email> element in the XML as well (XML to letter admin)?

  8. Make tags clickable

    Tags look clickable in Leganto, even if they are not. It creates the expectation that something should happen. Some users might expect they will be taken to the full text of the citation, depending on the tag label.

    What we would like to happen when a user clicks on a tag is that they get an overview of all the citations with the same tag. It's a quicker and more intuitive way than the current way of filtering by tag.

  9. Make it easier to edit templates within Leganto

    Once a template has been created it is not possible to update or edit it without saving it as a new template. It also means that other lists using the original template aren't updated and have to be updated manually. We would like the option to edit templates more easily and for any changes to be saved to all reading lists using that template.

  10. 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…

  11. Allow removal of LTI-added lists from My lists by users themselves

    It would be useful for all categories of user - Instructor, Student and Librarian to have the facility to actively remove any list/s which have been added to their My lists page either by dint of being a course or list owner, OR simply by having follow the LTI link from a VLE/CMS/LMS course link.

    Librarian staff have ended up stuck with lists because of this, but also because we wish normally to auto add instructor role and auto add instructor as owners, it would still be useful to allow all users to actively decide to control what they have…

  13. Material Visibility Start and End Dates on Rollover Inherit New Course Start and End Dates

    Adding material visibility start and end dates for uploaded files requires clicking in and out of every citation on the list which has an uploaded file, and then clicking 4 or 5 times further to advance the calendar to the end of the semester for each citation's material visibility end date. This request is asking for the rollover process, both for instructor and course loader rollover, to include the option to assign new material visibility start and end dates to any citations on the list which have a material visibility date at the time of rollover, and the new course…

  16. Lookup pricing and availability of books at online bookstores and display to patrons

    Ability to lookup pricing and availability of books using online bookstores' REST APIs and display to students and instructors, with links, in the Additional Services section of the full citation display. So not just links that might not work using "general electronic service", but more like "Check Availability and Pricing" in Alma. Not just for Amazon, it needs to be possible for an institution to select their preferred partner(s) and configure their affiliate ID or other parameters in the API requests.

  17. Improve Citations search (Alma workflows) e.g. include Journal title (and chapter title?)

    Hi,

    Staff find that the Citations search functionality in Alma/Course Reserves is not as effective as it could be for finding updates as the indexes which can be chosen do not cover sufficient citation metadata fields to allow for the most common searches to be supported.

    Currently the search options are:
    Citation ID
    Course Code
    Course Name
    Creator
    ISBN
    ISSN
    MMS ID
    Reading List Name
    Title

    However it is frequently the case when looking to update/correct citations that a Journal title would need to be searched, and unfortunately Title does not cover this aspect of the citation metadata when the…

  18. Allow users (especially students) to add a note when link is marked as broken

    When checking the broken link alerts each morning we often have to email the users to diagnose their access issues. It would save time if the user could add a short note at the point when they click 'Mark as broken'.

  20. Export permalinks as part of list/section export

    When exporting a list or a list section to Word, it would be very useful if the permalinks were also exported, as part of the citation. It is good practice and we would encourage our instructors to use full references if they want to add links to individual readings in topic areas of the VLE courses (or in email communications or on Powerpoint slides). In order to encourage instructors to comply, we would like to make this process as quick and simple as possible. Our suggestion to them is to export the section of the list to Word and to…
