  1. Cite It support for Oxford Law Trove

    Oxford Law Trove (http://www.oxfordlawtrove.com/) is an essential resource for our Law department. Could this please be added to the list of Cite It supported platforms so that cases and chapters can be added easily?

    • Identifying citations added via student suggestions

      We would like to be able to identify which citations have been added to lists by instructors from suggestions made by students.

      • Citation metadata display - in brief and full view (Author/Extract Author FIRST...)

        Similar suggestions will no doubt arise from multiple customers, but it would be useful to have an understanding of the design approach (and configuration possibilities) of the default display of citation metadata in Leganto as regards the general item display at Brief (list level), and Full view, and - by extension - in the My Collection view.

        For many customers the lack of a citation's Author PRECEEDING the Title of the work,
        OR (citation secondary material type dependant) the Book Chapter author
        OR the Article author
        BEFORE the article or book chapter title is very odd.

        Most reading list documents…

        • Stopping list creation from Leganto interface

          Allow libraries to configure an option to stop academics creating new reading lists from the Leganto interface, but still allow them to edit lists created by the library.

          • Deactivate Likes together with disabling of student discussion

            It is currently possible to deactivate student discussions on reading lists, but the Likes/hearts are still visible even then.

            We would like it to be deactivated as well, or have the possibility to do so, when student discussion is turned off.

            • Show Course Term, Course Year, and Academic Department in the header of "Edit reading list" page in Alma

              When staff are working on reading lists in Alma from the Reading List task list, they go into a list - the Edit Reading List page, and the top of the page gives some summary information in a header above the citations, however this header lacks some simple but helpful reference information about the course (where relevant), i.e.
              Course term
              Course Year
              Academic Department
              It would be useful to add these so as not to lose the context of what you are working on when going in and out of many reading lists over time.

              • 'Add new title to section' button - float in long sections

                Some lists have long sections. It would be very helpful not to have to scroll up through long sections to get to the 'Add new title to section' button. Would it be possible to make this button 'float' so that it is visible wherever you are in a list section. This would improve the list navigation experience for instructors and creators.

                • Define locally how much of a citation is shown i a reading list

                  If a public note is registered on a citation, it will be shown on one line only in the list itself, hiding parts of the text if the note is too long.
                  We would like institutions to be able to locally define how many lines are to be shown for each citation in the reading list itself.

                    Could this label be added to the UILegantoLabels code table? We would like to rename it as "Source URL", so that instructors creating citations manually will know that a link can be added here.

                      • Add "Chapter Number", "Chapter Author" and "Chapter Title" columns to citation search page on Alma

                        The citation metadata fields 'Chapter Number', 'Chapter Author', 'Chapter Title' cannot be viewed as columns on the citation search page in Alma (although they are visible if you edit the citation details). These fields contain key information which support our regular workflows, and it would be useful to have them visible at this level.

                        • Make volume information more visible in citation in Leganto

                          For citations with a volume number, "Vol." is added when the list is exported to Word with APA or another style.

                          This happens accordingly to citation style rules, but also greatly helps identifying what kind of information the number refers to.

                          In Leganto, volume numbers are displayed without this pre-text, and stand on their own. Having "vol." added also in the citation in Leganto (without messing with the export) would make such citations easier to read and more userfriendly.

                          • Always show the "Add" option in the Leganto 'Search Library (Primo API search) search results

                            Currently when using the search library feature (calling search scopes from a Primo view) to add items to a reading list, the search results appear but users need to click on the result before an "add" option appears.

                            This is a completely redundant click: it reduces the efficiency of adding resources this way by increasing the time and effort required to add every single item.

                            It is a strange design choice to hide the most obvious (and currently the only unless 'Add + Edit' is added) option and quite annoying in the User interface, having a negative impact on the…

                            • No openURL in exported reference lists with reference styles (Chicago and APA)

                              When exporting citations to Word with a reference style, openURLs are included to some citations such as journal articles and electronic books.
                              Example:
                              https://bibsys-um.userservices.exlibrisgroup.com/view/uresolver/47BIBSYS_HIM/openurl?ctx_enc=info:ofi/enc:UTF-8&ctx_id=10_1&ctx_tim=2017-10-18T15%3A36%3A41IST&ctx_ver=Z39.88-2004&url_ctx_fmt=info:ofi/fmt:kev:mtx:ctx&url_ver=Z39.88-2004&rfr_id=info:sid/primo.exlibrisgroup.com-BIBSYS_ILS&req_id=&rft_dat=ie=47BIBSYS_UBTO:5194209890002205,ie=47BIBSYS_HIO:5149861280002218,ie=47BIBSYS_HIM:5116987240002223,ie=47BIBSYS_HH:5153300090002214,ie=47BIBSYS_NETWORK:71468414340002201,language=eng,view=HIM&svc_dat=viewit&u.ignore_date_coverage=true&user_ip=&req.skin=primo  

                              This should not be the case.

                              According to both APA and Chicago, the DOI should be included if one is assigned.
                              If none is assigned, then you can include a URL. So URLs are not strictly necessary and they don't need to appear in the citation if the DOI is present.

                              APA just requires to write DOIs such as "DOI:10.1057/palgrave.kmrp.8500141", while Chicago seems to require DOI-based URLs:
                              "A URL based on a DOI (appended to …

                              • Option to export a list sorted alphabetically (without sections and with unique citations)

                                With March Release it is now possible to sort citations within sections alphabetically before exporting the list to Word.
                                We would like an additional option: to export the reading list as if it was a reference list:
                                - sorted by author name according to the chosen reference style
                                - without section
                                - with unique references only (if a the same citation is used in two sections it just appear only once)

                                Key fields to define if a citation is unique or not should be title and ISBN but also author and publication year in case there is no ISBN in…

                                • Add course context to notifications in Leganto

                                  Currently (March 2018) notifications in Leganto don't really provide any course context, or grouping on the basis of course, e.g.
                                  "- A new item was added to a list
                                  New item added to the reading list [list name]
                                  [User] added [title details]"

                                  which means that for users with many courses (students or instructors), and with several lists for a course, the context of what has really been added to where is quite confusing, or at least not very useful since the viewer has no real sense of what the change aplies to, rather they can only see the fact of…

                                    Showing the cover of a book togheter with the citation is a feature well appreciated by both students and instructors.

                                    According to Ex Libris, the two sources for thumbnails in Leganto are Google and Syndetics.

                                    We would like Leganto to be able to retrieve thumbnails from several sources, as is the case with Primo today.

                                    • Allow 'learning technologist' role to see all lists/course information associated with a specific Academic Department

                                      As we work with Academic Departments, we increasingly find that a departmental colleague has a key role as a "learning technologist" or admin in the VLE (CMS) Blackboard Moodle, Canvas etc etc. In order to help them manage and support reading list creation across an entire department it would really help if it was possibly to associate a User in Alma with an Academic department so they could see all the lists associated with that department, whether draft or published.

                                      NB because of the numbers, this idea would return us to the issue of librarians seeing too much in My…

                                      • Allow instructors to see List and Item Discussions more clearly

                                        Although there are concerns around anonymity of list and item level discussions, instructors are interested in being able to easily get a course-level overview of the discussions on their lists, and items on their lists. Currently the Notifications can help to get instructors to individual comments, but these have no course context, having list filtering and no course details. Being able to see whole discussions from notifications and seeing the courses with which they are associated would help greatly here.

                                        For example, if a lecturer is seeking feedback on assigned readings on a list, it would be useful to be…

                                        • Limit availability of Add to Reading List icon in Primo to signed in users/specific user group

                                          We would like to be able to choose to only display the "Add to Reading List" icon in the "Send to" action options in Primo (See attached) if the user is currently signed in or if the signed in user is part of a specific UserGroup, for example, a STAFF UserGroup.
