  1. Different student notifications on a course-by-course or instructor-by-instructor basis

    When we were setting up student notifications for Leganto, different instructors wanted different notifications sent out to students in their courses (for example, some instructors wanted students to be notified when new citations were added but others did not). However, you can only set which notifications are sent to students at the institution level, so those selections cannot be customized per course and must use the lowest common denominator. We think it would be helpful if instructors can choose on a per-course basis or a per-instructor basis (affecting all of their courses only) which notifications are sent to students.

  2. Make the "Disable Resolving" feature in the Citation details reportable in analytics

    Please make the "Disable Resolving" feature (from the Citation details tab in Alma) reportable in the Course Reserves area of Analytics.
    This would allow institutions to ensure appropriate citations have resolving disabled. This is essential in cases where publishers do not allow direct linking in any way to their content for course readings.
    It would also allow institutions to do a tidy-up of citations which required resolving disabled at some stage but where it's no longer required.

  6. Shibboleth SSO authentication for Refworks

    Recently the new version of RefWorks created SSO authentication process for Users. We have enabled this process. However, currently when users export records from Leganto to Refworks. It isn't allowed in many cases. As users need to use their new Refworks username and password. For Leganto to login to RefWorks and export the record.
    Solution. It would be better if users in Leganto could use SSO to sign into Refworks. So a specific new RefWorks password is no longer needed.

  7. Customise mandatory fields per citation type

    Currently the only mandatory field for a citation is "Title". We would like to be able to customise which fields are mandatory depending on the item type, so that instructors are prompted to fill out more than just the title when adding items from outside of our collections.

    We often find tutors fill out the title and add a URL, but if that URL breaks then just the title isn’t always sufficient information to find a new link to the resource. Having just the title also doesn't give students much information to work with when judging which resources to engage…

  8. 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…

  9. Related records: Show holdings for chapters only

    Showing holdings in Leganto for book chapters* requires that the parameter related_record is set to Yes. An unfortunate consequence is that this also shows holdings for other types of related records, like for example a book and the associated exercise book. Holdings for both books are shown together which is of course misleading and confusing.

    We would like to keep the related record parameter on, but make it so that the type of related record included in the displayed holding is more selective.

    In Alma, the relation is expressed in MARC field 773 (Host Item Entry). If the second Indicator…

  10. List/Course status = No list by choice

    There are many courses that, for a variety of reasons, intentionally do not have reading lists. The fact that this is deliberate is not immediately obvious though, and confusion can arise when people expect there to be a list connected to the course.

    Students might wonder if they are doing something wrong, librarians might have to keep separate spreadsheets to note which ones are supposed to be empty and instructors might be confused when asked to make lists in their LMS.

    For these courses, there should be some way to identify that the absence of any lists is by design…

  11. Add option for Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter to be "opt in" by default

    Hello,

    We had the Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter switched on, but because there is no option currently for this to be "opt in" by default rather than "opt out" by default, we have had to switch it off again. We are only in our pilot phase so may consider switching the Letter back on later when most of our staff are using Leganto RLs. But for now it's not ideal for all instructors to get notifications when they aren't using Leganto.

    We don't have control over how many instructors are attached to our courses, and because of the way courses…

  12. 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…

  13. Ability to configure citation processing rules to not generate purchase request

    At the moment, the citation processing rules are configured in such a way to only enable the generation of purchase requests if the criteria of the rule are met.
    It would be useful if it was possible to also create rules which could specify that a purchase request should not be generated if the criteria are met, and to be able to set the rules in order of priority. This should work in the same way as the fulfillment unit rules so that rules are worked through from top to bottom and only the first applicable rule is used; all…

  15. Increase the Loading Performance of Larger Reading Lists

    We would like to be able to create reading lists with more than 100 items, but they tend to load slowly when we do. Please increase the loading performance of reading lists so that we can create larger lists without impacting usability. We would like to see at least 300 items in a list without negatively impacting performance.

  16. Copyright Clearance Center Annual License Integration

    For institutions paying for the Copyright Clearance Center's annual license, it would be helpful if the process for checking permissions using RightFind could be integrated with Leganto. RightFind provides instructors with the ability to search for resources by title or ISBN/ISSN. The results display whether digital or photocopy sharing is permitted with a link to check pay-per-use. If instructors could see that a resource was already covered through the CCC annual license when adding citations, it would prevent the need to search in a second platform.

  17. Improve customization and branding for Leganto

    Currently, Leganto branding and customization settings do not work well together. In Branding, you can change the color of the header and separator bar, but the button that reveals the hamburger menu does not change color even if you put the correct color code in the field for the Leganto left panel color.

    In Customization, you can change the color of the hamburger menu, but this overrides the color codes in the Branding menu for the header and separator bar. You can put a color code into Leganto color in Customization instead, but that changes the color for everything, including…

  18. Improvement and development of the Leganto broken link handling

    At the moment Alma offers very little to properly handle Leganto broken links via the task-list menu. Once a Broken Link Alert is removed, the information is gone from Alma entirely. The functionality is inadequate as a workflow for library staff when investigating and recording details of our progress in fixing the problem, keeping students informed and statistical reporting.

    We would like to see additional functionality :
    • Broken Link Alerts to have a more permanent record in Alma and Analytics
    • Introduction of additional fields to capture information about the Broken Links - for example broken link status (e.g.…

  19. Publish electronic records without inventory as e-book and not physical book

    We are a consortium, and we have a certain number of e-book records without inventory in our network zone. Deleting these records is not an option for us for various reasons.

    The expected Alma behavior for such records if there is no inventory is to publish as physical. It applies to both Primo and Leganto.

    Use case: an instructor uses the expanded search to check for newer edition of a book they have previously used in a reading list. They add what seems to be a newer physical edition from 2020. In reality, the record is an e-book published as…

  20. Use the “Course Reserves Automatic Statuses” regardless of rollover type when recalculating citation status

    Idea based on SalesForce case 00938590

    TLDR: Use the “Course Reserves Automatic Statuses” regardless of rollover type when recalculating citation status.

    In Leganto, there are two ways of initiating a rollover:

    A: Directly in the Leganto interface by staff or instructors
    B: Via a Course Loading Integration Profile in Alma

    When a rollover is initiated through the Leganto interface, it follows certain rules set in the system (Configuration Menu > Leganto > List Management > Instructor Rollover Operations). If «Citation statuses» is set to “Recalculate”, the rollover process treats all the citations as if they were new and consults the…
