  1. Multiple rollover

    The rollover functionality is great and is used to reduce the workload for the staff.

    We have encountered one issue. What we have seen is that the work on the establishing of the courses themselves in the course management system (external system) often takes a long time and there are changes throughout the year. That means that at the point where the library would like to perform the rollover there will only be a portion of the courses that are ready in the course system. This means that there are a need to perform a 2nd rollover at a later…

  2. Give book extract citation type its own title field

    We like the concept of the book extract citation type, but would like it to operate more like a book chapter type rather than an article.

    We would like to give them titles like "Questions from Chapter 14", or use section headings that may be on the page of the book. If there was nothing obvious to use in the book, then we could make up a description of the extract [Extract from ch. 4].

    For students this would give them a clearer idea of what they are supposed to read rather than just seeing the whole book title.

    For…

  3. Citation Processing rules to use same Leganto real time availability merge rules for purchase requests

    Hi,
    Ideal Scenario:
    We currently have a citation processing rule set to automatically trigger a purchase request, if a book has a particular tag, and there are no E versions of the P available in repository. If there is an E copy available then the purchase request should not be triggered. If no E version is available, but the citation meets all other parameters in that particular citation processing rule, then a purchase request should automatically be triggered

    Issue:
    The problem at the moment is that, Leganto is not relating our E version to our P, and so is still…

  4. Return people to page once logged in

    We have an open search page for Leganto and make our lists open as well. Because of this people will often find lists in different ways i.e. not just following the link from the VLE.

    If you find a list that is open and then log in, or if you are on the open search page and log in, you are always taken to the "My lists" screen.

    I propose that when you log in you are returned to the page you started on i.e. if you are on a list page and log in you are returned to the…

  5. Citation menu options should be available from citation view

    It would be helpful if there was more access to the citation menu options when viewing the citation in Leganto. Users should be able to Copy to my collection, Send to Library, Mark as Read, get LTI Direct Access, get a permalink and Set Complete.

    Where this is a real problem however is for instructors who are using the Unlink LTI option on a citation from the LMS. To unlink, they follow the link to the citation, then have to know to go to the section to find the citation and its menu.

    Ideally both unlink and relink should be…

  6. Get an alert in Task list when a file is uploaded

    Instructors uploading a file together with a citation should trigger an alert: the library may want to control and check which files are published, due to copyright issues.

  7. Message at login to users with unsupported Internet Explorer versions

    Many websites, such as Facebook, Youtube and Gmail are no longer supporting old versions of Internet Explorer. Older versions of Internet Explorer(IE) have security problems which will never be fixed and using it will leave you vulnerable to all sorts of problems on the internet.

    Suggestion: Users receive a message saying that their browser does not meet the minimum requirements for accessing Leganto upon trying to log in with an unsupported browser. They may still be able to log in, but will not be able to view/use Leganto effectively. This has been done for other systems, see for example the…

  8. 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…

  9. Fix Cite It! login redirect

    When a user hits the Cite It! bookmarklet, if they are already logged into SSO, it works perfectly. However, if they aren't logged in, then hitting the Cite It! button lets them log in and takes them to Leganto. What it should do is capture the URL where they were when they first hit the bookmarklet, then login, then redirect back to the original page and open up the form to save the citation to a list or to the collection. This would make the use of the Cite It! button completely seamless for users.

  10. Configure general messages to be viewable to instructors only, students only or both

    The general message feature in the December 2020 release is a useful way to display messages to all Leganto users (such as scheduled downtime or important library messages).

    The functionality could be enhanced to allow general messages to be configured to only be viewed by instructors or students (or both if required). This would be useful in a number of scenarios and allow more targeted messages to be prominently displayed to relevant users at the point of need.

    For example:
    - reminders to academic staff to check their lists prior to rollover
    - reminder to academic staff to submit lists…

  11. View list citations in different referencing styles

    Would it be possible to apply different bibliographic styles within the Leganto list view, as well as being able to apply these when exporting to Word format.

  12. Auto Save tags when entering

    When adding tags you have to select the tag then click the Save button. If you hit Enter it adds the next tag in the list! Most users will hit enter thinking this will Save the tag. I'd like to eliminate the extra click on the Save button and have tags auto save.

  13. Suppress tags from specified citation material types

    We would like to be able to hide certain tags from specific material types, for example hide our 'Digitisation request' tag from citations which are already available electronically.

  14. Allow general messages to be scheduled

    The ability to schedule general messages in Leganto would streamline the workflow for time-sensitive messages e.g. messages relating to scheduled downtime would automatically be taken down after the date the downtime occurs.

  15. Cite It compatibility with JISC's Library Hub Discover (NBK)

    Library Hub Discover (replacement of COPAC) is not currently compatible with Cite It.

    Cite It only currently captures basic metadata from the site: citation type is always other, title is always Library Hub (rather than the title from the record) and no other details are picked up apart from the URL.

    It would be of great benefit to UK users if Library Hub Discover could be made compatible with Cite It.

  16. Additional automatic citation status configuration for purchase and resource charing requests

    We would like to be able to configure an automatic status change for citations where a purchase request has been submitted, or a resource sharing request submitted. In these cases we would like the citation's status to change to "In Process"

  17. Retain the original 'request for review' date

    Due to administrative deadlines etc we are interested in knowing when the list was first sent for review to the library. As of now we are experiencing that this date is updated when/if a course instructor submits the reading list again, which means we lose the original date.

    Our suggestion is that the original date is retained in a separate field.

  18. Choose which useful links teaching staff and students see

    We have just spotted that it’s possible to set up useful links in Leganto, these appear in the top right menu, see screen shot attached.

    We have created a user guide for teaching staff and would like to add this using this link, however we only want this to be visible to teaching staff and not to appear in student view. Similarly we would like to be able to give students specific links that appear only in student view.

  19. Make Leganto permalinks and front page available in different languages by including language parameter in the URL

    At present, there is no language parameter in the URL for Leganto permalinks or the Leganto front page, which means that even if we toggle the language from our default (English) to another language, and then copy a permalink, the permalink will default to English when opened.

    This is a problem for us as, in Wales, both English and Welsh are given equal status under Welsh Government language standards, and Welsh must not be treated less favourably than English. We need to provide links to Welsh language reading lists for courses taught through the medium of Welsh, which should not…

  20. Allow instructors to add Library Search result to other reading lists or My Collection

    User Story: As an instructor, I would like to have the option to add a citation to My Collection or other reading lists from the Search Library results in current reading list or My Collection (similar to adding an item from cite it), so that I don’t have to go in and out of My Collection/reading list to add a citation
