  1. Move away from Reading Lists and toward embeddable documents!

    Canvas allows for professors to include content altogether on a weekly/unit basis (called Modules). Reading Lists doesn't respect that format and complicates instruction. We should be able to embed library resources directly into Canvas through an iframe/LTI into whichever Module we like.

  2. Manage Digital Representations

    When looking at a citation, we would like to be able to see if "Manage Digital Representations" has been ticked by looking at the citation information without having to click through to "Manage Digital Representations" to check. Could a filter be added to filter what hasn't been checked on a reading list or some indication on the citation information section?

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Add a Leganto-specific email address after "Reply to" in notification letters

    Some institutions use a Leganto-specific email address, which they would like to add at the end of the Leganto notifications letters, where it says "Reply to" (see attachment).

    The address listed after that (Contact us) is a general email address for the library/institution.

    Not all of them may need to use different addresses but it would be nice to have the option.

    Could you consider making the necessary changes, and add a <leganto_email> element in the XML as well (XML to letter admin)?

  9. Create a history tab on Course records in Alma

    When looking at a course record in Alma, you can see which students are currently enrolled, along with other information about the course and who the instructors are. However, the course record doesn't have a history tab at all, so there's no record of any changes that may have happened to a course over time.

    Keeping such a history would be valuable - it would help to know if the begin and end dates have been changed, or when instructors were added or removed.

    The changes are in Alma but this functionality would be very helpful for us as Leganto…

  10. Getting Started Reading List

    When a new user accesses the reading list system maybe they should be greeted with an example reading list which includes citations from Leganto YouTube playlist showing the features and how to use the system. Possibly create a student version and another for the reading list designer to show. Librarians could edit the Getting Started List to include their own citations and sections as well

  11. 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.

  12. Remove citations' redundant punctuations

    We noticed that there are redundant punctuations displayed in the citations added from Alma, could these redundant punctuations not show when adding the citations into the reading list?

    I do know that Leganto uses "," to separate different fields like author, edition and publisher. It would be clearer and easier for students to read the details of the citations without these redundant punctuations.

    We notice that what appears in the MARC record would be directly copied to the citation, please could an enhancement be made to check if the existing field has punctuation at the end and remove it from…

    Both keyboard shortcuts (hot keys) to reduce mouse use, and ability to add often used pages/functions in a "favorites" linkbar for easy access. Reducing the amount of mouse clicks needed.

  14. Leganto +ReadingList widget

    In adding the +ReadingList widget to the bookmark manager of a browser, you need a two-step process. First click the widget from one's Leganto settings menu and click again on the widget button from the pop-up window. This is more of a user experience issue, many if unfamiliar will choose to drag the widget after clicking on the menu settings and will drag the URL instead of clicking another time to wait for the pop-out window to drag the right widget with the javascript (see below).

  15. 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.

  16. Allow removal of LTI-added lists from My lists by users themselves

    It would be useful for all categories of user - Instructor, Student and Librarian to have the facility to actively remove any list/s which have been added to their My lists page either by dint of being a course or list owner, OR simply by having follow the LTI link from a VLE/CMS/LMS course link.

    Librarian staff have ended up stuck with lists because of this, but also because we wish normally to auto add instructor role and auto add instructor as owners, it would still be useful to allow all users to actively decide to control what they have…

  17. Display module name / code / year alongside list title in Copy Section > Copy Into List dropdown menu

    This dropdown menu currently only displays lists by title. This is not useful in cases where the list has a generic title, e.g. 'Reading List', or if the same list has been rolled-over from previous years (there is no way to distinguish which list is for which year).

    It would be very useful if the module name, code and year could be displayed alongside the list title here.

  20. Drag citations from list into My Collection

    Could functionality be added so that citations which appear in lists can be copied to My Collection by drag and drop (rather than via options > copy to collection).

    This seems logical, as you can do the reverse action to copy a citation from My Collection to a list via drag and drop.
