  1. Save a selection of Citation menu option as the default view

    When entering Citation view to process current course reserves, you must first always select from the List Assigned to menu "Assigned to me" and then apply various other filters to limit the view to what needs to be processed. It takes time to apply each filter each time the citations list is accessed; allowing some filters to be "sticky" or default according to processor preference would save time when processing citation requests.

  2. Enable the user to focus on the relevant sections, based on the date

    If the list is built by week, by default all sections relevant to the past will be collapsed. Only the current week's section and future sections will be expanded, by default.

  3. Leganto Instructor Rollover - Relocate "Roll Over List" to appear next to "SEND LIST" button

    As Library staff, I would like the Roll Over List button to be placed at a more obvious spot in Leganto, so instructors can easily find the button and Rollover their Lists with fewer clicks.

    UNSW Library will enable the Leganto Course Instructor Rollover in November 2018. We want instructors to use this feature, and not be confused with the Duplicate List option.

    Current Behavior:
    1. Instructor opens a Reading List in Leganto
    2. clicks on Reading list options menu option
    3. selects "Roll Over List", which is beneath "Duplicate List"
    Concerns:
    a. They need to know where the button…

  4. Leganto: Have a Reference displayed for the resource in the style required eg APA7th

    There was a comment from an academic saying when their readings were in the Learning Management System they had the correct APA referencing style demonstrated, with the link to the reading – so students could see the correct format. And the academic was disappointed that the Leganto list didn’t demonstrate the referencing in the correct style. So we would propose that under the title of the resource in the Leganto list, the reference for the resource would be listed in APA6 (or probably APA7 now) format. Ideally it would be like Endnote – where we input the data in the…

  5. Automatically close "Edit menu" after clicking "Set complete"

    When clicking "Set complete" while editing a resource in brief view, the edit menu does not automatically close itself as it does with most other options. This generates an extra click in order to get to the next item on the list. Could the edit menu be automatically closes when clicking "Set complete"?

  6. Include more search features in Leganto such as Subject Search, Sort by Newest, and more filter options that is available in Primo.

    Leganto Search box is limited in comparison to Primo which means we need to do more complex searches in Primo and then import/export selected items, which is quite tedious with large and non-specific results. Please allow individual libraries to provide the option to add more Primo features such as filters, sort, and advanced Subject Search.

  7. Allow Instructors to make students collaborators on specific reading lists

    From feedback we received from Instructors, they would like the ability to add students as collaborators on specific reading lists. This would enable course students to collaborate on the compilation of materials and sharing of comments on them as part of learning and research activities.
    To date it seems the ability to add students as collaborators is limited to Alma-side changes - see the idea which was added to production in May 2018 in https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/33076474-adding-a-collaborator-needs-to-assign-instructor-r

    We can see there may be data privacy concerns from some 'free searching' of users without a role, but wondered whether either the LTI aspect…

  8. Library Physical Digitization Request Option to Attach File to Citation For Which It Was Requested

    When using the Library Physical Digitization Request option to create a digitization process for a file for a Reading List, the file is delivered to the Requestor at the end of the workflow. This request is asking for another option: an option for Alma to automatically upload the file to the citation for which it was requested. This would save a lot of time spent used for file retrieval and file management and would prevent the file being uploaded on the wrong citation.

  9. Improve access to Public Notes - allow editing from the Citation edit option

    Public Notes (instructor notes on resources visible to list users) are treated oddly in Leganto compared to other reading list systems - that is they are not given equal status as other citation metadata fields in the Citation Edit form.

    Public Notes are regularly used by Instructors to annotate or qualify resources; to comment on and direct students as to the quality, purpose, priority, and considerations of using certain resources, or parts of resources.

    In that sense the Public Note should be accessible for editing when editing all other item metadata (such as chapter title etc.

    Currently the Public note…

  10. Associate new reading list from inside course with that course

    When a reading list is created from inside a course, it would help the instructor if the list would then automatically be associated with that course. Or at least be very easy to associate it with the course that the instructor is currently in.

    At this moment, the instructor is inside a course in Leganto. Adds a new reading list. Has to associate that reading list to a course all over again, while the instructor is already there.
    This is confusing for instructors.
