  1. Academic Departments - add field for Faculty/School

    Academic Departments within institutions often sit under Faculty or School groups. This is currently not represented in Alma or Leganto. Could we have a new (optional) field added for School/Faculty both to the Academic Department area and have it available in Analytics.

    We are considering adding a field to the course record in Alma, reportable in Analytics, for the faculty/school. It could be used for reporting purposes but not for discovery purposes. In other words, you would be able to pull list usage by faculty/school, but end users would not be able to browse by faculty/school. Would it still be helpful? 

  2. 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.…

  3. Overview of readings lists in a study program

    Leganto gives the possibility to
    - link to a specific course (and display the list(s) associated to this course)
    - get an overview of all the reading lists belonging to a specific academic departments, through their course association

    The missing link in between is the association of a smaller number of courses, belonging to the same academic department or not:
    the study program.

    Librarians and instructors could associate courses to a study program as easily as they can associate a list to a course.
    Students could search for a program in the find list interface.
    An overview of all the…

  4. Notify when a title (esp. electronic portfolio) chosen in a Leganto reading list is deleted in Alma

    Especially when dealing with electronic titles, for example when importing them, Alma may delete some portfolios.
    However, researchers may have previously selected these portfolios for their Leganto reading list. But nobody would notice that, until the students find a broken link in Leganto.

    To avoid that right now we perform a manual check, relying on an Analysis looking for Electronic Titles selected for reading lists before running the import, and comparing that with the list of deleted portfolio we have when the import is finished. It's however time consuming.

    It would be much better to get a notification when the…

  5. Add MARC field 240 as a new field in Leganto

    We have several records representing e-books, which are published as e-books (much) later than when the same content was published as a printed book. The printed book may be published in 2007, the same e-book in 2019, and even if both dates are recorded in the 008-field of the record, this information is not displayed in Leganto. Only the actual publishing year (in our example 2019) is visible to the user. It makes it look like a newer edition, which it is not.
    Ex: https://bibsys-k.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/leganto/readinglist/citation/14473946130002204?institute=47BIBSYS_UBO&auth=SAML

    Our case was closed last time (#05336252) but we are now moving to RDA standards,…

  6. When adding citations to a list via search, prioritize latest edition and owned item first

    Sometimes instructors perform a citation search in Leganto and just add the first result that comes up in the search results; often this is actually a book review or other format that isn't logical for reserves. Additionally, most instructors are searching and expecting the latest edition to appear first in the list. Other faculty from certain departments want to choose a particular edition, and so need edition information prominently surfaced in the search result.

    This results in processing delays as staff must check with instructors to clarify what items they really intended to place on reserve.

    One possible solution may…

    We are exploring options for this idea. The priority of the results is set by either Primo or Summon, so we cannot simply show the newest edition first unless the discovery ranking changes. However, we could potentially develop an option using the Questions feature in which the system could recognize that the instructor has added something which has other editions. The library could then configure a question for the instructor to understand if they want that edition, any edition, or the newest edition, for example. Would this help meet the need?

  7. Reading list ‘bulk export’ in Leganto

    Currently the only way to export reading lists in Leganto is exporting them one at a time. I would like to suggest an option for a bulk export of reading lists, where one can export more than one list in a single operation.

    A possible workflow could be adding an ‘Export’-option in the “Find lists”-menu, and using a prompt for selecting lists to export. It could additionally be available in the “My lists”-menu.

    Ideally the export options should be the same as when exporting a single list or section, with choices like File Type, Bibliographic Styles and Sorting.

    There are…

  9. Accessibility for Digital Items on Course Reserves

    Currently we are only able to add one file to a single citation. We would like to provide all the alternative electronic formats for scanned articles and book chapters to make sure that our electronic resources are more accessible. We have been testing with the Blackboard Ally program, which produces alternative electronic files of the following types: OCRedPDF, Tagged PDF, Audio, HTML, Electronic Braille, ePub and Beeline Reader. Another option for the future could be Leganto automatically making those file types available once you attach a scanned document. The file transforming tool we are currently using is at https://ally.ac/covid19/ .

  10. NEW UI: Deactivate the "due date" field and the “hide” check button in “Information for students” section

    We want to be able to deactivate the due date field and the “hide” check button in the “Information for students” section when adding a citation using a Manual Entry or when adding a citation through the “search the library” function.
    Once published, our citations must always be visible to all students. At our institution, Leganto Lists are mandatory for all our instructors because students should always have access to the lists and the ones that refer to previous academic years. If an instructor assigns a due date or hides a citation, it would be a problem for students who…

  11. Custom Analytics 'Reports' within Leganto interface for instructors

    Currently the 'Reports' link (attached) in Leganto just links to an 'out the box' analytics dashboard displaying a range of usage information.

    It would be useful to be able to define a path to our own Analytics dashboard in an Alma code table, e.g. in Fulfilment > Leganto > Customer Settings.

    Our analytics report would be set to receive filters/parameters from Leganto, i.e. reading list codes.

    Academic engagement forms a significant part of the work we do with reading lists, so being able to be flexible and responsive to their needs/wishes in terms of usage of their lists would definitely…

  12. Add Electronic Collection data to Course Reserves Analytics

    In Alma Analytics, accessing information about Leganto citations is best managed via the Course Reserves area. However, the Course Reserve reports available seem set up for physical items. For example, we do not have the option to pull Electronic Collection data from Alma Analytics for citations. The limitation is especially true for CDI resources, where you cannot even obtain an MMS ID.

    When vendors pull ebooks or other cited materials from their selection, it’s important that the library is able to identify affected resources quickly. This allows the library to proactively manage the citation, locating the materials elsewhere or work…

  13. More detailed 'Recent Changes' tab

    The number of changes recorded in the Recent Changes tab is limited. We'd like to see a complete log of changes in the reading list. For example, we'd like to see if a comment in the Library Discussion has been deleted (and in what citation). Also possibly if a citation has been located to a different MMSID. In Alma and Analytics we can see the Last Modification date and Modified By, but we do not know what the modification was unless it is recorded in Recent Changes.

  14. Multiple assignees per list

    Some institutions would like the possibility to have several assigned librarians per lists.
    "We have many lists common to several campuses, and it will only increase in the future. In order to have a local overview, the campus libraries would like to be able to see the lists that are relevant to their campus. As of today this is difficult, as one one librarian can be assigned a list. We need to rely on manual processes (forwarding lists, and having manual overviews over which lists are for multiple campuses). This is difficult to maintain."

  15. 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.

  16. Suggest Replacement feature - keep book extract or chapter information

    When using the Suggest Replacement feature for book extract or chapter citations, the data in the chapter and/or page range fields should be kept (rather than automatically deleted) if the suggestion is approved. When the suggestion is approved either from Leganto or Alma there should be an alert (like a pop-up box) to notify the user they may need to check the chapter/page range details on the suggested replacement.

    Alternatively, the user could be presented with an option to decide whether the chapter/extract information is kept or overwritten.

  18. 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…

  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. More frequent notifications for Library Discussion Notes

    Library Discussion Notes are a great way to communicate with faculty about the status of resources cited in reading lists. However, notifications about new notes are only delivered once per day at midnight using the detailed notifications letter. This delays response times. A more frequent schedule for Library Discussion Notes, such as hourly, would be much more efficient and useful for faculty and staff.
