  1. Move away from Reading Lists and toward embeddable documents!

    Canvas allows for professors to include content altogether on a weekly/unit basis (called Modules). Reading Lists doesn't respect that format and complicates instruction. We should be able to embed library resources directly into Canvas through an iframe/LTI into whichever Module we like.

    • Move citations in bulk from a list to My Collection rather than only one by one

      Moving citations one by one through the options menu is painful. Users should be able to move all citations in a list, or selected subsets of citations in a list to My Collection. The ability to select and copy all or select some and copy is a very common usability feature for list management.

      This would really make My collection the easiest way to search and find previously used materials across course lists.

      • More facets on the Reading Lists Task List

        Thank you for changing some filters into facets, but in order to make better use of this functionality, we would like to add more facets.
        It would be a great improvement if we could have Academic Department, Course Terms and Assignee as facets as well.
        Then we could easily sort the list to match each liasion librarians need for easy overview to his/her's Reading List Task List.
        The facets we have today doesn't help very much in order to filter the list into a manageable task list.
        Maybe it could be possible to customize the facets in the same way…

        • Option to receive email notifications for new or changed citations submitted by instructors

          We'd like the option to receive emailed notifications for new or changed citations submitted by instructors. This option should be configurable to allow Library staff to select either immediate notifications for each change or daily digests. Each reading list should have the option for staff to indicate whether if they'd like notifications for that list.

            • Option to change the default tab on the Reading Lists Tasks List page in Alma

              We'd like either a global option to set the default tab to All or an option for each user to select their own preference. This would improve the workflow for staff because they often collaborate on Reading Lists and searching from the All tab is preferable to searching from the other tabs.

              • Customer setting to disable automatic assignment of reading lists

                We would like the option to globally disable the automatic assignment of reading lists to staff who work on a list. Automatic assignment adds an extra step when staff are searching for lists.

                • Number of participants per campus more visible in Alma

                  Please have a look at the attached document for full description with pictures.

                  Hi,
                  Here are a few suggestions regarding the number of participants as shown in Alma:
                  1. When controlling a list where several campuses are involved, only the campuses are indicated, not the number of students per campus.
                  We would like this information to be visible here. It would make it easier to decide if more copies should be bought, or if the library of another campus should have a look at the list.
                  2. When associating a list to a course in Leganto, the information about the…

                  • Move "+" sign

                    The "+" sign should be moved down to each section, and the default section should then be the section the click comes from. That is more intuitive. I am pretty sure 9 of 10 users starts looking in the sections for a way to add literature.

                    • "send list"

                      The "Send list" button should be renamed "SAVE". It is far from obvious that this must be pressed in order to finalize the list (which I assume this button does?)

                      • Move Material type field to the top of the Editing form

                        We think the field for material type should be moved to the top of the Editing form.
                        This makes sense for several reasons.
                        - It makes sense to define a document before registering it, and that’s where cataloguers start.
                        - Different document types have different sets of fields, and choosing the material type first would ensure that the instructor starts registering in the correct form.
                        - When changing the material type during the process, some fields may move or disappear, including fields the instructor had just been working on, leading to a poor user experience.
                        - User creating a chapter…

                          • Automatically checking if a newer edition exists

                            When instructors create reading lists, they're often interested in the newest edition of a book, but may not be aware that a newer edition exist.
                            If they're library doesn't have it or (when searching in a broader scope) if no one in the consortium has catalogued it yet, they won't find it.
                            In any case, automatically checking if such an edition exist would be a nice feature.

                            • Develop an update process between the Parent record (ALMA) and the added appointment in Leganto

                              It is important that they develop an update process between the Parent record and the added appointment in Leganto, that is, whenever there is an update or change in the records (MARC, holdins, items) of Alma that are referenced in the lists of reading Leganto. Currently these changes are not automatically updated in the reading lists . Por example we make changes at the classification level, in metadata and reading lists in Leganto are altered and we must re-reference or load the lists. It would be a excelllent if this process were automatic.
                              Thank you

                                • Add events (citation modifications, etc) by library staff to Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area in Analytics

                                  Currently the Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area only identifies events created by list collaborators. At our institution, library staff are also responsible for making modifications to lists and citations (for example, adding tags), however these actions are not displayed as 'events' on analyses created in this subject area.

                                  As previously discussed with Ex Libris (see SF 00523008), it would be useful for our workflows if both instructor and library staff events could display in this subject area (perhaps under separate descriptors).

                                  • Leganto Instructor Rollover - Allow citation "Additional Resource Information" to be copied to the rolled over list

                                    As library staff, I would like the "Additional Resource Information" for Citations to be copied to the rolled over list, so that I can keep the additional sources for the citation (in addition to the source in the Resource Information area) I manually added to citations in the original list.

                                    Current Behaviour:
                                    1. Rollover the list
                                    2. Find out which Citations have Additional Resource Information
                                    3. Manually add the "Additional Resource Information" source information to the Citations in the rolled over list

                                    Proposed Behaviour;
                                    1. Rollover the list, Additional Resource Information is copied through to the new list

                                    • Leganto Instructor Rollover - Allow Library Internal Notes to be copied to the rolled over list

                                      As library staff, I would like the Library Internal Notes to be copied to the rolled over list, so that I can keep the information I recorded in original list.

                                      Internal Notes for a Citation or a Reading List may include:
                                      - special copyright/license information,
                                      - special considerations/actions
                                      - historical decisions or agreements

                                      • Leganto Instructor Rollover - Relocate "Roll Over List" to appear next to "SEND LIST" button

                                        As Library staff, I would like the Roll Over List button to be placed at a more obvious spot in Leganto, so instructors can easily find the button and Rollover their Lists with fewer clicks.

                                        UNSW Library will enable the Leganto Course Instructor Rollover in November 2018. We want instructors to use this feature, and not be confused with the Duplicate List option.

                                        Current Behavior:
                                        1. Instructor opens a Reading List in Leganto
                                        2. clicks on Reading list options menu option
                                        3. selects "Roll Over List", which is beneath "Duplicate List"
                                        Concerns:
                                        a. They need to know where the button…

                                        • Number of participants as a possible field in reading list overview

                                          In the reading list overview in Alma it is possible to choose the kind of information shown in the table, like code, assignee, status and so on. It would be nice having the numbers of participants as an option as well.
