Extend shelf recommendations to include ebooks
In the July 2018 release notes a new feature was described for showing shelf other titles located on the same or adjacent shelves near the citation.
In Primo we have the virtual browse configured to include ebooks that have an LC classification in the bib record. We think the shelf recommendations in Leganto should be extended to accommodate ebooks in a similar way. Especially as more of our budget is going to online books.
I logged a case asking for it, and Ex Libris has indicated that it sounds beneficial for other other customers, and requested that we garner support via the Ideas Exchange.

It would be interesting to learn how many other customers have LC or Dewey classifications in their Ebook records -whether deliberately as it were, or more by chance from the suppliers of ebooks purchased, and therefore what proportion of their total materials w/could get interfiled.
