  1. 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.

  2. Conformation and Manual Linking for Resource Locate actions on Citations

    It would be great if, using the option to Resource Locate on a citation, there was an option to confirm/decline that the correct inventory was matched through the process before the link takes place.

    If we also had the option to manually search for the correct inventory when declining in the above step when the Resource Locate fails to link to the correct inventory, between both of these options we could ensure that the citation links to the inventory we intend.

    This would solve the problem which is faced now, that when Resource Locate is used and Alma determines and…

  3. Extra scope in Leganto with all the citations already processed by the library

    We would like another scope to be added in Leganto: The completed Leganto citations already approved by the library. Effectively, the content in Alma>Fulfillment>Course Reserves>Citations.

    In most cases a citation will rarely be perfect when you import it to a reading list. You usually have to customize the citation in some way. To be able to reuse the already processed and completed citation will save a lot of work for both instructors and/or librarians. This is especially true for book chapters, as not many are catalogued in Alma as such.

    Completed citations could be easily searchable by instructors in Leganto.

  4. Allow the citation 'Source' field label to be customised

    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.

  5. 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…

  6. Add student level activity to Leganto reports

    Academics would like to track student usage of Leganto reading lists as an indicator for students who are at risk of under-performing or dropping out of courses.
    A way of identifying students who are not reading or participating on the Leganto list would be useful.

  7. Being able as an instructor to see all reading lists attached to a specific course

    As an instructor, it might be useful to search for a course (whether it is the instructor's courses or a collaborator's courses) to obtain the list of all related reading lists of that specific course. Right now, in the Instructor page, the search for course name will only list the reading list that the instructor has already created, or followed. Thanks

  8. Reuse list button on splash screen

    When users first enter Leganto via the LTI, before they have created a list for the current course, they see a splash screen with options to Create a new list from scratch or upload a list. A better option would be to replace the Upload button with a Reuse button, so that it is easy for users to get to the right place to find previous lists to reuse. Reusing a list from a previous semester is by far the largest use case for our faculty, and the splash screen makes it very difficult to see how to do that.…

  9. Save a selection of Citation menu option as the default view

    When entering Citation view to process current course reserves, you must first always select from the List Assigned to menu "Assigned to me" and then apply various other filters to limit the view to what needs to be processed. It takes time to apply each filter each time the citations list is accessed; allowing some filters to be "sticky" or default according to processor preference would save time when processing citation requests.

  10. Sort list should retain selected value

    Currently if you choose a "sort list" option in the Leganto front end (e.g., "list title") then click into a list and then click the "back" button, the sort list option defaults to "My lists on top".

    It would be preferable if the sort list value chosen by the user remains.

  11. Leganto Instructor Rollover - Allow citation "Additional Resource Information" to be copied to the rolled over list

    As library staff, I would like the "Additional Resource Information" for Citations to be copied to the rolled over list, so that I can keep the additional sources for the citation (in addition to the source in the Resource Information area) I manually added to citations in the original list.

    Current Behaviour:
    1. Rollover the list
    2. Find out which Citations have Additional Resource Information
    3. Manually add the "Additional Resource Information" source information to the Citations in the rolled over list

    Proposed Behaviour;
    1. Rollover the list, Additional Resource Information is copied through to the new list

  12. Add events (citation modifications, etc) by library staff to Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area in Analytics

    Currently the Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area only identifies events created by list collaborators. At our institution, library staff are also responsible for making modifications to lists and citations (for example, adding tags), however these actions are not displayed as 'events' on analyses created in this subject area.

    As previously discussed with Ex Libris (see SF 00523008), it would be useful for our workflows if both instructor and library staff events could display in this subject area (perhaps under separate descriptors).

    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

  14. Actualización automática de registros en Listas de Lectura Leganto

    Es importante que exista un proceso de actualización entre el registro Padre y la cita agregada en Leganto. Que toda vez que se realice alguna actualización y o cambio en los registros (MARC, holdings o ítems) de Alma que estén referenciados en listas de Lectura de Leganto, estos registros cambios puedan actualizarse automáticamente en las listas de lectura sin necesidad de que se realice manualmente. Actualmente realizamos cambios a nivel de clasificación, cambios en los metadatos y toda vez que los realizamos las listas de lectura se alteran y no son accesibles desde Leganto, por lo que se debe volver…

  15. Autofill CCC special order forms

    When a reading cannot have copyright clearance immediately granted in Leganto, staff are notified to place a special order. Sometimes Leganto provides a direct link to a blank CCC form, but sometimes it doesn’t. In either case, the staff must enter all form information manually, even though that data has already been entered in Leganto.

    Leganto should connect directly to the CCC form in all cases where a special order is needed, and autofill the form with all relevant data that has already been entered in Leganto. E.g., ISBN/ISSN, year, volume, pages, number of students, article or chapter title, etc.

  16. Improve Leganto linking when user isn't already logged in

    We've recently gone live with Leganto and Ex Libris have advised we come here with this issue. Students cannot use the Permalinks function to link to individual lists/items, and we expect users are going to just copy or bookmark Leganto URLs from the browser bar instead, but those URLs don’t seem to work at all unless the user is already in toLeganto. If they're not already logged in, trying to access a Leganto URL just makes the browser try unsuccessfully to load the page, and the browser eventually times out and produces errors. This is apparently expected behavior due to…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
