How can we improve Leganto?

Update the citation field labels when resource types other than Book or Journals are selected

Currently when a user selects citation types for video or audio etc, the field labels are not updated to match accordingly.

Mapping of fields such as that used in reference managers like Endnote would help for better display to students, and help instructors to enter appropriate metadata. eg. For a video in the more details section the labels mention pages. "Total pages" could be relabelled as "Running Time".

    Agree. With so many citation material types visible in the Leganto front-end, and brief citations in Alma, it would be useful if Ex Libris could provide a little more information on the underlying field logic (which fields are distinct/reused across different material types. Can see that this may be a headache for label configuration, but it would give people much more certainty about field mappings (Primo/Cite it!/RIS, etc), and more confidence in how tightly citation locate was really working, as well as assisting with user-interface consistency.
