  1. New UI - allow institutions to hide "Hide from students/student note/due date" from *all* citation views

    In the June 2024 release we were given the option to hide the "Hide from students/student note/due date" (in any combination) from the quick edit view of a citation. But, regardless of the setting you choose, all the options are still visible in the full details/citation URL view of a citation.

    We would like to hide the "Hide from students" option everywhere to stop instructors from hiding citations. We find that instructors forget to unhide items, or don't unhide them in enough time for students to access items (especially disabled students who need time to request alternative formats).

    We'd like…

  2. Include text of Library Discussion Note in Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter

    Could the actual text of the Library Discussion Note be included for Instructors when they receive a Notification that there is an outstanding Library Discussion via the Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter.

    Currently, the Letter only tells the Instructor that there is a Library Discussion waiting for them. They then need to log-in to Leganto to see what it is. Providing the text would enable the Instructor to determine whether they need to log-in to Leganto and action something in the list or not, and would bring the letter in line with other email notifications e.g. service desk messages, where they…

  3. Improve functionality of Courses API

    We use the Courses API to load units from our Learning Management System into Alma/Leganto. We would also like to use it to roll over reading lists, however, it is missing key functionality that we require for our workflows.
    Because of this we have to manually roll over lists. During peak times this is a weekly job and takes up an undue amount of staff time.
    The 2 main improvements we would like to see are:
    -Addition of Write functionality for Tags: We rollover citation tags and this is not supported by the API.
    -Citation Copyright: When trying to create…

  4. Add Unpaywall full text availability in Leganto

    We have enabled links to Unpaywall in Primo VE with the "enableopenaccessservicesfromunpaywallapi" setting in Config->Fulfillment->General->Other Settings. However, these links don't appear in Leganto, only Primo. I opened a case with Support [#00984855] and they confirm that this is the expected behaviour: the Unpaywall Open Access API service is presently only available through Primo.

    Our Leganto users would benefit from having Ex Libris add Unpaywall full text availability to Leganto, so that they could easily see these resources are available. Some Leganto users would see the "Full text not available" and not use the resource…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.)

  7. 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.

    We plan to add the following options for the new UI:


    Advanced search:

    1. Select from Contains, Contains exact phrase, Starts with

    2. Search by DOI

    3. Type and Availability filters on the Advanced search page

    4. Filter by publication date: Specific year, Last 2 years, Last 5 years, etc.


    Search results:

    5. Select multiple filters for type or availability with OR operator between. Example, Book or Book chapter

  8. 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.

  9. Custom Analytics 'Reports' within Leganto interface for instructors

    Currently the 'Reports' link (attached) in Leganto just links to an 'out the box' analytics dashboard displaying a range of usage information.

    It would be useful to be able to define a path to our own Analytics dashboard in an Alma code table, e.g. in Fulfilment > Leganto > Customer Settings.

    Our analytics report would be set to receive filters/parameters from Leganto, i.e. reading list codes.

    Academic engagement forms a significant part of the work we do with reading lists, so being able to be flexible and responsive to their needs/wishes in terms of usage of their lists would definitely…

  11. Allow Instructors to make students collaborators on specific reading lists

    From feedback we received from Instructors, they would like the ability to add students as collaborators on specific reading lists. This would enable course students to collaborate on the compilation of materials and sharing of comments on them as part of learning and research activities.
    To date it seems the ability to add students as collaborators is limited to Alma-side changes - see the idea which was added to production in May 2018 in https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/33076474-adding-a-collaborator-needs-to-assign-instructor-r

    We can see there may be data privacy concerns from some 'free searching' of users without a role, but wondered whether either the LTI aspect…

  12. Academic Departments - add field for Faculty/School

    Academic Departments within institutions often sit under Faculty or School groups. This is currently not represented in Alma or Leganto. Could we have a new (optional) field added for School/Faculty both to the Academic Department area and have it available in Analytics.

    We will add a field to the course record in Alma, reportable in Analytics, for the faculty/school. It could be used for reporting purposes but not for discovery purposes. In other words, you will be able to pull list usage by faculty/school, but end users will not be able to browse by faculty/school. 

  13. Add course context to notifications in Leganto

    Currently (March 2018) notifications in Leganto don't really provide any course context, or grouping on the basis of course, e.g.
    "- A new item was added to a list
    New item added to the reading list [list name]
    [User] added [title details]"

    which means that for users with many courses (students or instructors), and with several lists for a course, the context of what has really been added to where is quite confusing, or at least not very useful since the viewer has no real sense of what the change aplies to, rather they can only see the fact of…

  14. Show availability in results list when searching library catalog (instructor)

    Instructors should see results when they search so they know if copies are available, from their library/branch, and to be able to check a link from the search level to see if it's the one they want (so they don't have to go back and delete if not).
