  1. Use Analytics to surface information on user activity in My Collection

    We would like to use Analytics to see user activity in My Collection, for example how many times a title has been added to My Collection (but not necessarily added to a reading list).

      • Option to hide panels

        Would it be possible for the top and left panels to be visible as default, with the option for the user to hide them using the tabs (rather than making them hidden as default)?

        • Drag citations from list into My Collection

          Could functionality be added so that citations which appear in lists can be copied to My Collection by drag and drop (rather than via options > copy to collection).

          This seems logical, as you can do the reverse action to copy a citation from My Collection to a list via drag and drop.

          • Assign list owners/collaborators in bulk

            The Feb 2018 release enabled us to remove all list owners/collaborators as manual bulk job. Could the same functionality be provided for adding new users?

              • More self explanatory labels in the Leganto Publishing Configuration

                The labels in the Leganto Publishing Configuration (Configuration > Fulfillment > Leganto > Publishing) are rather confusing.
                "Anyone Restricted" especially has been a cause of misunderstanding with both Ex Libris and institutions in our consortium. A simple change such as "Anyone Restricted, Course students only" for example would make it easier to immediately understand who has access to uploaded files.

                But all labels in general would benefit from a more self explanatory formulation, for example:
                List anyone,
                List all students,
                List course students,

                , course materials anyone
                , course materials all students
                , course materials course students

                • 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…

                  • Ability to Re-Associate Reading List with new Course after copyright records and completed citations are present in the List

                    It would be very useful to be allowed to re-associate and incorrectly associated reading list with the correct course in Alma after work has begun processing the citations inside the Reading List.

                    When an Academic associates their Legato Reading list to a Course, in some cases this is done incorrectly and assigned to the wrong course, which needs correcting. It is currently not possible to simply re-associate a Reading List to a new Course if work on that reading list has started, and there are completed Citations with Copyright Records.

                    The only workaround at present is to change a value…

                    • Citation Copyright Attributes Can Also Calculate With Roman Numerals

                      It would be of great help if Alma could take into account and calculate when Roman Numerals are used in the Required Pages fields of a Copyright Attribute. At the moment Alma cannot calculate pages copied if Required Pages are in Roman Numerals and this is a very frequent occurrence.
                      Notice in the attached the Total Required Pages is greyed out and not calculated.

                      • Autocomplete Non-CiteIt Citations based on Material Type or other configured rules

                        It would be very useful to be able to have configuration in Alma that would allow citations with a specific list of defined Material Types to be set to citation status: Complete and Copyright Status: Not Required or Approved automatically when they first are created on the Reading List. This would save staff working on Reading lists where there are numerous citations which need no copyright approval or should be auto Approved and need no user intervention, to be automatically marked complete if they matched a configurable list of material types exiting in Alma already.

                        • 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.

                          • Better options/formatting when exporting a list to PDF

                            Exporting to PDF is a useful function but not very useable as it is:
                            A list of 11 citations will turn into a 5 page-pdf, with 2 citation per page most of the time (probably due to too much space in between citations).
                            This is clearly not good if one exported the list in order to print it, so this should be reviewed and adjusted.

                            We also hope it will eventually be possible to choose a reference style when exporting to PDF (as with Word), once issues in that regard are fixed and the exported lists are judged satisfactory according…

                              This filter is automatically set to "Alert:All" so we would expected the citations shown under to be all citations with alert, but this in not the case (only shows all citations).
                              The way we see it, the filter should be blank by default and "All" should be a possible choice, allowing to show all the citations with an alert.

                                  To share "My collection" would be a good thing for instructors/librarians who work in the same field of education. It's in some way like sharing your EndNote library.
                                  "My collection" will contain citations that are not necessarily published in a course list, but still could be of use for others. This regards citations shared from one researcher to another but not necessarily in a reading list and/or citations processed by the library.

                                    The citation search in Leganto has been significantly improved with the material type facets.
                                    But it could be made even more efficient and userfriendly with the possibility to search or filter by publication year.
                                    Some publications such as reports have the same title and the time of publication is a good way to differentiate between them and/or easier to remember than a DOI.

Possibly create a student version and another for the reading list designer to show. Librarians could edit the Getting Started List to include their own citations and sections as well

                                      • 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.

                                          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
