  1. Make it easier to edit templates within Leganto

    Once a template has been created it is not possible to update or edit it without saving it as a new template. It also means that other lists using the original template aren't updated and have to be updated manually. We would like the option to edit templates more easily and for any changes to be saved to all reading lists using that template.

  2. Configure which links can be embedded in citation

    In Leganto there is now functionality to directly embed citations. This can be enabled so that links can be embedded in the citation screen and the site shows in Leganto without the student having to view it in another tab.

    This works well when the URL can be directly resolved. However, if a link must go through a proxy authentication mechanism before it can resolve then a large blank space shows in the Leganto citation instead of the site or proxy login screen.

    We propose the ability to configure Leganto so that you can choose to only allows links that…

  3. Cite It favicon

    The Cite It bookmark should have a favicon (small icon or logo) so that it is easily distinguishable from other bookmarks.

  4. Show accurate total of books in stock

    The Alma side of Leganto uses the number of copies of a book in total but unlike Primo, does not ignore books marked as 'lost' or 'missing'. Would it be possible for Leganto to show the current total of books in stock (either available or on loan) without any missing/lost ones?

  5. Instructor view mode

    It would be useful to be able to view a list from the perspective of an instructor, rather than as library staff or as a student.

    For example, we have different levels of tag visibility and would like to test how these appear for instructors.

  6. Add Play as a citation material type option

    Please could we have a citation material type option for plays, as we don't currently have one and I have a lot of plays to add.

  8. Reading list visibility/searchable in Google

    Our institutions wonder if it is possible to make the reading lists visible in Google so that the students can get the reading lists if they search for the course code or a topic that is covered by the reading list.

    I tried to look in the documentation, but could not find anything about this.

    Is there a possibillity to make the lists visible/indexed by Google (e.g. by a sitemap or similar)?

  9. Display tags on page showing multiple lists a citation appears on

    When you click on the "Demand in other lists, other courses" alert, the subsequent page (screenshot included) presents you with a table of all other lists where a citation appears. It would be really useful if this table displayed the tags associated with the citation on each list.

    We use tags to inform our purchasing quantities, so when currently reviewing lists, we are having to go in and view the citation on each individual list to check for tags.

  10. Let teachers make their own content open access

    We have three kinds of content:
    * copyrighted material - should never be OA
    * teacher-created content that they want to keep to their class only
    * teacher-created content that they'd like to share with other teachers and/or use to promote their class

    To accommodate this third group, we'd like functionality that would let teachers tag content they've uploaded to be made open access. Functionality should:


    • make teachers confirm they (or the university as their employer) own the IP


    • let them choose a Creative Commons license


    • provide a permalink for the item where it's accessible publically


    • provide a platform where…

  11. Improve xml for GeneralAssignToLetter

    We use GeneralAssignToLetter to assign Reading List to library staff and Leganto Collaborator staff. Although <assignedobjectname> is present in the xml, but "course code" data is missing, hence we are unable to output that to the letter - we can added onto the xslt letter. We believe course code is essential data element on a Reading List DataSheet.

  12. Sorting option available for students

    Today it is only possible for owners / collaborators to choose how a reading list should be sorted in Leganto (alphabetically by title or author, or "unsorted"), but not for the one who sees the list after publication (= usually students).
    They might prefer another sorting than the one imposed by the list owner, making it easier to find a specific citation.

  13. Export to Excel - Remove "Citation" from each column

    We want to suggest a slight modification of the export to Excel.

    As you can see on the attached screenshot, the title for each column is preceded by Referanse/Citation.
    Ex:
    Citation Volume | Citation Issue | Citation pages | Citation start page and so on.

    The document would be easier to read, and thus more user friendly without the extra "citation" text.

  14. Creating section for citation without delete and recreate via API

    Currently, it is not possible to create sectioninfo information if citation is already exists. It must be delete the original citation and create new citation with updated sectioninfo.

    It is better to allow update of section_info directly without delete and recreate the same citation.

  15. Citation – Bibliographic record overlay enhancement request

    Request:
    As a Library Staff member, I would like functionality that allows me to enhance the bibliographic information in Leganto citations by identifying, retrieving, and overlaying institutional bibliographic records. I would want this functionality to be added to the Leganto interface to allow me to process a list entirely within this environment.

    We are aware of the “process and enrich citations job”. However, this job can be disruptive to citations where we are not supplying access via institutional holdings. We also want the ability to resolve bibliographic issues with citation on a case-by-case basis.

    Situation:
    When a citation has been…

  16. Reject input if DOI or citation source URL is incorrectly formatted (Leganto instructor UI)

    We have seen many instructors create citations manually (rather than using Cite It) with the DOI formatted as a full URL (e.g. "https://doi.org/10.1111/misp.12056&quot; rather than just "10.1111/misp.12056"). This prevents the citation from resolving and linking to the resource as expected.

    Similarly, some users will add the citation source URL without the "https://&quot; prefix, or with other formatting issues which prevent it from linking as expected.

    A simple fix for this issue would be for Leganto to detect incorrectly formatted DOIs or URLs and to reject input, displaying a tooltip to inform the user of the correct…

  17. Display physical / electronic availability for citations in Analytics (Course Reserves and Instructor Usage subject areas)

    Physical (print) and electronic (ebook) availability cannot be added as columns in these Analytics subject areas. This would be hugely beneficial for most of our daily reports and workflows as we try to ensure that a certain number of copies or electronic versions are available for resources added to reading lists.

    An additional requirement is for availability to be shown for records related to the citation. This is because we have separate title records for physical (print) holdings and electronic (ebook) portfolios, and use the related_records parameter in Leganto Customer Settings to display availability for all available formats at citation…

  18. Enable Process and Enrich Citations to run as a scheduled job

    This job needs to be run on a regular basis to ensure that all citations are linked to repository records, but this must currently be done manually by a member of library staff. It would be very useful if the job could be scheduled to run automatically.

  19. Display Instructor's name along with list title and code in search.

    This is a very simply display improvement. Students looking for lists from searchlists often want to find their list by instructor name. Sometimes they will browse by department, or try to find their course amongst other sections and there is no indication of who the list instructor is from the brief list record. Even if they search by that name, they may misspell it and still have to and have to click through to open the course to be assured they have the right list. Adding it with the code at the bottom of the display would be a useful…

  20. Display series information in citation details

    It would be useful if book series information (from the title record 440 and/or 490 fields) could be surfaced in citation metadata details. This is important information which should be displayed for the benefit of our users.
