  1. Fix Cite It! login redirect

    When a user hits the Cite It! bookmarklet, if they are already logged into SSO, it works perfectly. However, if they aren't logged in, then hitting the Cite It! button lets them log in and takes them to Leganto. What it should do is capture the URL where they were when they first hit the bookmarklet, then login, then redirect back to the original page and open up the form to save the citation to a list or to the collection. This would make the use of the Cite It! button completely seamless for users.

  3. 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.

  4. Improvment suggestions for the Bag it function

    Hi,
    Several of our institutions have chosen to hide the Bag It! Function in the option menu. They agree it’s a nice concept, but the drawbacks described under led to that decision:


    • The citations in Bag it disappear when logging out, which comes as a surprise for many instructors. In some cases, they put a lot of work in making the Bag it list.

    • Users cannot sort the list according to different criteria, which doesn’t make this tool very practical.

    • Users cannot move citations over to “My collection”. Not a must, but nice to have.

    I hope this can be…

  5. Add semester and year as possible fields in the Find list advanced search

    Find list settings allow librarians to customize the basic and advanced search interfaces in Leganto. However year and semester are not among the search fields to be chosen from. These are useful search criteria and we would like them to be added to the Find list setting table.

  8. Multiple rollover

    The rollover functionality is great and is used to reduce the workload for the staff.

    We have encountered one issue. What we have seen is that the work on the establishing of the courses themselves in the course management system (external system) often takes a long time and there are changes throughout the year. That means that at the point where the library would like to perform the rollover there will only be a portion of the courses that are ready in the course system. This means that there are a need to perform a 2nd rollover at a later…

  9. Allow multiple citation material types to be selected in questions and answers mapping table

    When configuring the question and answer pop up feature, currently in the question mapping table only one citation material type can be selected per row.

    Therefore, if you want the same question and answers pop up to appear for more than one citation, you need to duplicate the question on multiple rows for each citation type. Allowing multiple citation types to be selected per row would avoid this duplication.

    For example, we have a pop up configured to appear for books, book chapter and DVD citations to ask instructors to tag them for importance (Core, Essential etc), which allows library…

  10. 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.

  11. Add "list ID" to searchable ids/All in Alma reading lists persistent search

    It would be useful if reading list ID was searchable for "Reading lists" in the persistent search bar in Alma. Currently it is List code, but this is not important to many users, especially with leganto, and given that the list id is really the only pure list id you see in Leganto front end (address bar, permalink) it would assist with error checking, isolating oddities from analytics reporting, and being sure people have easy and consistent access to the right versions of materials between the front end and the back end. Going from Alma to Leganto the link uses…

  13. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Library Physical Digitization Request Option to Attach File to Citation For Which It Was Requested

    When using the Library Physical Digitization Request option to create a digitization process for a file for a Reading List, the file is delivered to the Requestor at the end of the workflow. This request is asking for another option: an option for Alma to automatically upload the file to the citation for which it was requested. This would save a lot of time spent used for file retrieval and file management and would prevent the file being uploaded on the wrong citation.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Improve access to Public Notes - allow editing from the Citation edit option

    Public Notes (instructor notes on resources visible to list users) are treated oddly in Leganto compared to other reading list systems - that is they are not given equal status as other citation metadata fields in the Citation Edit form.

    Public Notes are regularly used by Instructors to annotate or qualify resources; to comment on and direct students as to the quality, purpose, priority, and considerations of using certain resources, or parts of resources.

    In that sense the Public Note should be accessible for editing when editing all other item metadata (such as chapter title etc.

    Currently the Public note…

  20. 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…
