  1. 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.

  2. Hide locations from Resource Locate

    Hide locations from Resource Locate

    We would like an option to filter out specific locations for the resource locate functionality in Leganto.

    For legal reasons we can't purge lost/discarded items, they have to remain in Alma where they are collected in locations that are suppressed from discovery so they don't show up in Primo. Unfortunately that doesn't exclude them from being used as positive results for resource locating even though they are not actually available.

    We also have several collections that are not accessible to people but (some of them) show up in Primo. Those are also items we wouldn't…

  3. Display related title electronic / physical availability in Alma citation search

    We rely on related records to enable all availability options to display where different formats have separate bib records (as a citation can only be resource located to one record at a time). It would be useful if a 'Related' availability tab could appear in Alma alongside Physical, Electronic, Digital and Other.

  4. 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…

  5. Notification function for Library Staff

    To add the notification function for Library Staff to notify the Library Staff by email if the citations have the following changes:


    • A tag was added to an item

    • A tag was removed from an item

    • A comment was added to a citation

    • A submit lists by date was added to your course

    • New library discussion in citation

    • The due date was updated in an item

    • A new item was added to a list

    • Item status marked as complete

    • Item status marked as declined

    • You have joined a reading list as a collaborator

    • Reading list was deleted

    • List was rolled…

  6. Improve Leganto linking when user isn't already logged in

    We've recently gone live with Leganto and Ex Libris have advised we come here with this issue. Students cannot use the Permalinks function to link to individual lists/items, and we expect users are going to just copy or bookmark Leganto URLs from the browser bar instead, but those URLs don’t seem to work at all unless the user is already in toLeganto. If they're not already logged in, trying to access a Leganto URL just makes the browser try unsuccessfully to load the page, and the browser eventually times out and produces errors. This is apparently expected behavior due to…

  7. 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…

  8. 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:

  9. 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?

  10. 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)?

  11. 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.

  12. Display templates and other elements in the interface language

    In today's interface, if you want the same template in different languages, you have to either create one for each language, or remember to have both languages in the section title when creating the template.

    EX: Section 1: Obligatorisk/Mandatory

    Templates consist of a name, description and section names. The person creating the template could be given the option to translate these fields when creating the template. Of course, it would be an advantage if templates could be edited later on.

    All templates should be visible regardless of the interface language, but the template should be shown in the same language…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Leganto Analytics - add functionality to identify rolled over reading lists

    At UNSW we encourage academics to use the Leganto Instructor Rollover feature. We need to report on percentage of reading lists that have been rolled over for each of the terms. This information would help us to track how our reading lists are re-used, and understand the impact of this functionality.

  17. Configuration - Disable file upload in reading lists

    Institutions should be left the choice to deal with - or not - copyright issues regarding uploaded materials.

    The possibility to upload materials to reading lists in Leganto should be a configuration parameter, allowing libraries to switch it on or off.

    Uploading files to "My Collection" is of course not problematic.

  18. 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…

  19. Allow more than one digitization department for Leganto requesting

    If you want to allow faculty to place digitization requests in Leganto, you can only specify a single department to manage these requests. This could either be at the institution level or inside an individual library. However, this is a problem if your institution has multiple campuses/libraries that may each want to manage their own digitization request workflows.

    This enhancement would allow general systems administrators to specify multiple digitization departments in place of the current “managing_department” setting in configurations under Fulfillment --> Copyright Management --> Leganto Copyright Settings.

  20. Option to change the default tab on the Reading Lists Tasks List page in Alma

    We'd like either a global option to set the default tab to All or an option for each user to select their own preference. This would improve the workflow for staff because they often collaborate on Reading Lists and searching from the All tab is preferable to searching from the other tabs.
