  1. Number of participants as a possible field in reading list overview

    In the reading list overview in Alma it is possible to choose the kind of information shown in the table, like code, assignee, status and so on. It would be nice having the numbers of participants as an option as well.

    • Sort templates in Leganto

      When there are a lot of template to choose from, they should be automatically sorted alphabetically and /or the library should be able to sort and arrange them manually.

      • Hide old courses

        Some course are run every semester which means there are potentially two courses to choose from when associating a list to a course.
        There is a risk that the instructor chooses the wrong/old course.
        It would be a nice feature to be able to hide old courses from instructors without deleting them from Alma, as they still might be useful.

        • 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".

          • Free text space above File Upload Copyright options in Leganto

            Currently, in the front end of Leganto, there is no free text space above the File Copyright Upload options. Please see attached screenshot.

            It would be good user experience if there is the option to add some free text there otherwise it's just a series of options without an explanation of what they are.

            • 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…

              • 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…

                • Duplicating lists - navigate automatically to new list

                  When a user duplicates a list we would expect Leganto to navigate automatically to the newly created (duplicated) list rather than the original list.

                  This has caused confusion for some users, who do not realise that they need to navigate to 'My Lists' in order to find their duplicated list. This has resulted in lots of duplicate draft lists appearing in our system which are not required.

                  • Pop up to associate a duplicated with original course or updated course for a different academic year

                    A newly duplicated reading list remains attached to the same course as the original from which the duplicated reading list was made. We would expect that when a list has been duplicated a prompt box is generated which gives the user the option to associate the reading list with the original course or re-associate it with an updated course for a different academic year.

                    User story

                    As an academic I would like to duplicate the current year's reading list which is attached to a course for 2016/17 and create a reading list for 2017/18. Within this list duplication process I…

                    • File Upload Copyright options to be visible when loading on the screen

                      When a reading list creator uploads a file into a reading list, the File Upload Copyright options are not all immediately visible. If there is more than three, it is necessary to scroll down to see the rest of them.

                      It would be preferable if all File Upload Copyright options could be visible when the sections loads.

                      • Adding metadata to articles via the search interface in ALMA

                        When using the Link Resolver on an uploaded article it needs comprehensive amounts of metadata attached in order to locate the resource.

                        If an article is uploaded without metadata the librarian needs to search Primo and manually add the needed metadata to the item.

                        In order to optimize the workflow we would like to be able to use Locate Resource in Alma to find the metadata and automagically add it to the item. As we are using Primo VE this should be possible.

                        • Add a job to (dis)associate reading lists with course(s)

                          By default un-associated reading lists are attached to the Exlibris default course, and currently any reading lists imported by Exlibris - ie from Equella, require that the courses already exist, in order to associate properly.

                          However, what happens if you want to change the association of a reading list to a course or courses? There is currently no API mechanism to do this, and the reading list import by Exlibris can't be run in 'resynch' mode where the courses may have been created after the reading list import.

                          What we're suggesting is that a job can be run using a…

                          • Order and remove citations in leganto, so users only have the best links at the top of a page.

                            When an article is available from multiple places, Leganto shows all possible links, which looks messy and can be confusing. It would be preferable to be able to suppress certain links, or re-order them so the 'best' link is at the top. If a link is added manually, Alma automatically overrides it and shows all the links again.

                            • My list filter by reading list

                              New filter by is only on course code. This needs to be reading list name (not code as most instructors will not know what the codes are).
                              There seems to be no reason how you have sorted the filter by course section. This should be changed to alphabetical etc. And done the same for reading list filter.
                              There is an issue when scrolling down the filtered list, as this doesn't adjust to different size pages.

                                  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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • Link to earlier book editions in the student view

                                        To be able to add a link to a reading list to all earlier editions of a book (which are suitable for students to use). The link would need to be visible in the student view and ideally display all the earlier edition books with links.

                                        • Public notes to have text formatting.

                                          It would be helpful to be able to do some basic formatting of Public Notes text. Such as being able to bold or colour fonts and change font size. This would improve the user experience as students would be able to more easily pick out Public Notes text in reading lists and academics could customise the appearance of the notes text they write.
