  1. Identifying citations added via student suggestions

    We would like to be able to identify which citations have been added to lists by instructors from suggestions made by students.

  2. Assign list owners/collaborators in bulk

    The Feb 2018 release enabled us to remove all list owners/collaborators as manual bulk job. Could the same functionality be provided for adding new users?

  4. Make the 'Mark as read' symbol more prominent

    We feel that students are not making best use of this feature, perhaps because it's not immediately clear that the small 'tick' icon carries this function. Could this be displayed more clearly, for example by displaying the 'Mark as read' text without having to hover over the icon.

  5. Allow items added by Cite It to also be added to My Collection

    Our instructors and students have suggested this enhancement. Currently they can only add items to a list or My Collection with Cite It, there's no option to add to both.

  6. Allow citations to be detached from resources in bulk

    It would be useful to have this as an option from the Citations list in Alma

  7. Import / export lists in BibTex format

    This has been suggested by an instructor as a useful enhancement.

  8. Add an 'Undo' button to Leganto UI

    Instructors would appreciate this, especially when they first start using the system.

  9. Retain citation status (Being Prepared / Complete) when copying or duplicating a list

    When using the duplicate list or copy section functions, citations which have previously been marked as Complete will revert to Being Prepared. This creates unnecessary additional work for our staff who have to mark the citations as complete again.

  10. Add "Chapter Number", "Chapter Author" and "Chapter Title" columns to citation search page on Alma

    The citation metadata fields 'Chapter Number', 'Chapter Author', 'Chapter Title' cannot be viewed as columns on the citation search page in Alma (although they are visible if you edit the citation details). These fields contain key information which support our regular workflows, and it would be useful to have them visible at this level.

  11. Define locally how much of a citation is shown i a reading list

    If a public note is registered on a citation, it will be shown on one line only in the list itself, hiding parts of the text if the note is too long.
    We would like institutions to be able to locally define how many lines are to be shown for each citation in the reading list itself.

  12. Reading List Status Changes based on Citations Statuses and Assignees

    It would be great if the manual process of Changing a Reading List Status could be automated by Alma dependant on factors like Assignee being set to someone, rather than being for the Reading List. This could trigger the List Status to change from Waiting for Processing to Being Processed.

    Another Reading List Status automation we would suggest is that when every Citation in a Reading List is marked Citation Status Complete, this could trigger the Reading List Status to be updated Complete.

    Both of these Reading List Status changes are things that need to be performed manually at present…

  13. Conformation and Manual Linking for Resource Locate actions on Citations

    It would be great if, using the option to Resource Locate on a citation, there was an option to confirm/decline that the correct inventory was matched through the process before the link takes place.

    If we also had the option to manually search for the correct inventory when declining in the above step when the Resource Locate fails to link to the correct inventory, between both of these options we could ensure that the citation links to the inventory we intend.

    This would solve the problem which is faced now, that when Resource Locate is used and Alma determines and…

  14. Autocomplete Non-CiteIt Citations based on Material Type or other configured rules

    It would be very useful to be able to have configuration in Alma that would allow citations with a specific list of defined Material Types to be set to citation status: Complete and Copyright Status: Not Required or Approved automatically when they first are created on the Reading List. This would save staff working on Reading lists where there are numerous citations which need no copyright approval or should be auto Approved and need no user intervention, to be automatically marked complete if they matched a configurable list of material types exiting in Alma already.

    At the moment it takes…

  15. Extra scope in Leganto with all the citations already processed by the library

    We would like another scope to be added in Leganto: The completed Leganto citations already approved by the library. Effectively, the content in Alma>Fulfillment>Course Reserves>Citations.

    In most cases a citation will rarely be perfect when you import it to a reading list. You usually have to customize the citation in some way. To be able to reuse the already processed and completed citation will save a lot of work for both instructors and/or librarians. This is especially true for book chapters, as not many are catalogued in Alma as such.

    Completed citations could be easily searchable by instructors in Leganto.

  16. Book covers shown with citations to be retrieved from several sources

    Showing the cover of a book togheter with the citation is a feature well appreciated by both students and instructors.

    According to Ex Libris, the two sources for thumbnails in Leganto are Google and Syndetics.

    We would like Leganto to be able to retrieve thumbnails from several sources, as is the case with Primo today.

  17. Better options/formatting when exporting a list to PDF

    Exporting to PDF is a useful function but not very useable as it is:
    A list of 11 citations will turn into a 5 page-pdf, with 2 citation per page most of the time (probably due to too much space in between citations).
    This is clearly not good if one exported the list in order to print it, so this should be reviewed and adjusted.

    We also hope it will eventually be possible to choose a reference style when exporting to PDF (as with Word), once issues in that regard are fixed and the exported lists are judged satisfactory according…

  18. Allow instructors to see List and Item Discussions more clearly

    Although there are concerns around anonymity of list and item level discussions, instructors are interested in being able to easily get a course-level overview of the discussions on their lists, and items on their lists. Currently the Notifications can help to get instructors to individual comments, but these have no course context, having list filtering and no course details. Being able to see whole discussions from notifications and seeing the courses with which they are associated would help greatly here.

    For example, if a lecturer is seeking feedback on assigned readings on a list, it would be useful to be…

  19. Improvment for the alert filter in Alma

    In Fulfillment > Citation

    This filter is automatically set to "Alert:All" so we would expected the citations shown under to be all citations with alert, but this in not the case (only shows all citations).
    The way we see it, the filter should be blank by default and "All" should be a possible choice, allowing to show all the citations with an alert.

  20. Always show the "Add" option in the Leganto 'Search Library (Primo API search) search results

    Currently when using the search library feature (calling search scopes from a Primo view) to add items to a reading list, the search results appear but users need to click on the result before an "add" option appears.

    This is a completely redundant click: it reduces the efficiency of adding resources this way by increasing the time and effort required to add every single item.

    It is a strange design choice to hide the most obvious (and currently the only unless 'Add + Edit' is added) option and quite annoying in the User interface, having a negative impact on the…
