  1. Option to rename/customise the Rialto 'Add Items' search scope

    We have recently turned on the option for instructors to 'add items' using Rialto but this terminology is confusing for them.

    We would like the option to customise this heading e.g. 'Search our book supplier' or 'Rialto (Library book supplier)'
    This should encourage use and facilitate training.

    We would much prefer instructors use Rialto rather than Cite It to harvest from publisher websites. Cite It often misses key bib information and/or brings in erroneous e-links.

  3. Display logo and favicon in the Leganto configuration area

    When we upload a header logo and/or a Leganto favicon, it doesn't show in the configuration area. Having it there would improve the experience because it would be easy to see if you had uploaded a logo/icon or not, and which one it was.

    This isn't a huge problem, but it also seems like it could have a simple solution - just display the file and filename in the Alma config.

  5. 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…

  6. Enable selection of multiple RLs when adding a resource

    Some times the same record / resource needs to be added to multiple reading lists. Currently it is possible to be done one at a time, by checking each time just one RL (radio button). It will be much more effective to change it so that more than one could be selected (check box).

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

    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.

  10. 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…

  11. Course display - current number of enrolled students

    The "Number of participants" field is meant to be a place where library staff can enter how many students are expected to be in a course. However, that field doesn't update unless staff manually update it. For libraries loading course enrollments, the actual number can change day to day.

    It is possible to find the current number of students in a course if you enable the 'Students' tab for the course display in Alma. However, some libraries may not want to make student enrollment information available to everyone who has an Alma login.

    It would be helpful if the current…

  12. Support file copy options for reference manager integrations

    Leganto does not provide options for uploading files to reading lists via the reference manager integrations (specifically Zotero) and instead shows attached files from Zotero collections as separate citations. It would improve the experience of instructors if the reference manager integrations would allow files to be attached to imported citations, rather than having to reattach those files in the reading list.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Bulk updating of citations across reading lists

    Situation
    One of our tasks in checking reading lists is ensuring that the version of each title is the latest edition. Acquisitions staff will check book citations on a reading list and, if there is a newer edition available, purchase and replace the citation on the list with this new version.

    Problem
    When a specific title is used on multiple lists, Acquisitions staff are having to manually identify all citations using this title, add the newer edition to the reading list, and remove the older edition from the reading list.

    Staff are also having to manually transfer any specific reading/public/resource…

  17. Set Copyright status to approved automatically when no file attached to citation.

    Automatic copyright clearance based on local rules in Leganto is only possible in the case of citations that have a file attached.
    Our wish is that copyright clearance can also be applied when there is no file attached. Our local rule would then be:
    "if no file is attached, the copyright status of the citation must be changed to "approved".

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Add year field to course bulk update job

    The course bulk update job can be used to update most of the key fields for each course, eg terms, start dates - but not the year.

    We don't want to have to update the year field manually for all of our courses, so can this option be added to the course bulk update job?
