  1. Update tags via API

    Currently, the Tags API is limited to retrieving tags. We would like the ability to be able to update and/or remove tags in bulk via a script using the API.

  2. Add library discussion notes to the citation brief display in Alma

    This would save us from having to click into the citations to view notes from lecturers or between library staff

  4. Allow users (especially students) to add a note when link is marked as broken

    When checking the broken link alerts each morning we often have to email the users to diagnose their access issues. It would save time if the user could add a short note at the point when they click 'Mark as broken'.

  5. Allow to embed the reading list page main content area to another webpage

    We wish to have a way to embed the reading list page main content area (as attached) to another webpage. Because our library has a webpage for recommended books, and wants to show the reading list embedded in that webpage.

    Thank you

  6. Avoid session timeout for guests users

    For the public find list page, in Guest mode, after timeout, it will redirect to the Leganto local login screen which is strange and user does not know what this is. We have raised SF 00647401 and ExLibris agreed to fix in Alma July release that it will redirect to the SAML login screen which looks more familiar to our user.

    But actually ultimately what we want is NO session timeout for guest users. As no login in the first place, there is no need of "session timeout".

    Thank you

  7. Have a separate citation material type list for manually created citation

    The full list contains 55 citation material types. If we disable some of them, then material type may show strange code like "READINGLISTCITATIONSECONDARYTYPES.REFERENCE_ENTRY" (assuming we have disabled the Reference Entry code).

    But if we enable all of them, the list is too long for the Faculty to select when they create their own citation. Also Faculty do not have necessary knowledge to classify for each type. We expect it just a list of less than 10 items, say "Printed Books", "Printed Journal", "E-resources", etc.

    In fact the citation type can be a very useful information in our workflow such that…

  8. Resource locate to default to "OR"

    It would be useful if "Locate Citation by Fields" could be configured so that only one enabled field needs to have an exact match, i.e. the resource locate defaults to "OR" rather than "AND" where more than one citation metadata field is populated.

    This would allow citations to be matched where a title is misspelled, but an ISBN is correct, or vice versa.

  9. Removal of standard blank template and ability to create a default institution template which cannot be deleted

    We would like to remove or hide the standard out of the box blank template and have a standard institutional template which cannot be deleted or customized. This would ensure that reading lists created by instructors are of the same standard.

  10. Remove an individual user from all courses/lists where they are an instructor/owner

    This is only currently possible as a bulk process using the reading list 'Remove all owners' job, or by using the course uploader. This is inefficient in cases where an individual member of staff leaves or is no longer teaching on a specified module and therefore needs to be manually removed as a list owner / course instructor.

  11. Alerts

    We would prefer a shorter way to view citation notes within Alma, either by clicking on a note within the overview (see attachment ‘Citation note’) or by display of details (‘the note’) within the overview. Now we have to go to Edit > Notes to see the requests/remarks that are essential for our services to instructors.

  12. Sections

    We prefer the option to add sections or move citations to different sections within Alma. The assigned section is shown for each citation in the overview of the Readinglist (see attachment ‘Section Alma’) but it only possible to change a section by drag&drop in Leganto. This is less convenient for librarians when we create or change a list on behalf of an instructor (and work from Alma). For lists that have a lot of sections and citations, the moving of citations in Leganto is also not the most user-friendly way (and the most secure way – a citation is easily…

  13. Filters/sorting/duplicates

    Filters/sorting/duplicates

    It is possible to look for citations within Alma’s persistent searchbox, but we would prefer a sorting function (A-Z) or a searchbox within a list. This would help looking for a citation while staying in a readinglist. Furthermore, it would help to detect unintended duplicates which have been added from, for example, ‘My Collection’ AND Repository Search AND Zotero. Or is it possible to mark duplicated citations?

  14. Changing a name on a reading list in Leganto can not be saved when Alma is open

    When changing the title of a reading list in Leganto it is changed back after a short while. We have found a way around it with having Alma closed when updating the title in Leganto.

    We would like to be able to change the name in Leganto without having to close Alma for it to be saved.

    Example:

  16. Add citation ID to enrichment job results summary (Preview records / Events Report screen)

    After running the process and enrich citations job you can view the 'Job Report' containing a summary of resource locate results (Resource locate match found, multiple match found, etc.)

    For each of these result types you can click 'Preview records' to open an Events Report screen, however this is not useful as it does not include the citation ID (the columns provided are course code, section, reading list code and title).

    Could the citation ID be added to this screen.

  17. Show all user IDs where more than one user reports broken citation link

    The Edit Citations area in Alma only shows the user ID of the most recent user to mark a citation link as broken. If more than one user has marked the same link as broken then this is shown by a number, but you cannot see the previous user IDs.

    This is hugely problematic for our team as we try to follow up with all users by email, either to let them know that a broken link has been fixed or to ask for more information for troubleshooting purposes.

  18. Index Start Page and End Page for Book Chapter and Document type citations in Analytics

    Start and end pages for article type citations are currently indexed in Analytics, and Article Number of Pages is present/calculated in Analytics. Start Page and End Page for Book Chapter and Document type citations, as well as Total Pages for Document citations are not.

    We'd like to share this data with our Copyright Clearance department without using a workaround.

  19. Sort citations in Alma by date of alert generated

    Citations in Alma can currently be sorted by date created, date modified, citation title and reading list name.

    It would be useful if we could sort them by the date an alert has been generated (e.g. date when a user has marked a broken link). We could then prioritise the alerts more effectively as they are actioned.

  20. Identify and combine related editions in Leganto

    Problem: A lack of FRBRisation in bibliographic records in Alma means that in Leganto different formats of the same title can only be offered on individual citations, i.e. the print edition will be one
    citation, and the eBook will be on another citation. We want to be able to offer all available formats of a title to our students.

    Impact: Without the ability to combine citations of the print and electronic version of the same title, they currently appear as if they are two required readings (see attachment 1).

    The lack of ability to combine multiple versions of the same…
