  1. In the Alma Reading list view of citations, allow Citation Last Modification Date to take operators such as 'before/after or between' etc

    It would make some checks on reading lists easier if it was possible to more effectively filter the citations displayed, not just by the facets, but by having additional operator options for the Citation Last Modification Date. Having not just a specific date but before/after and between dates would make this more powerful.

    It might be useful it it was possible be more intelligent here by offering a date since list sent for review, etc

  2. Leganto integration with MS Teams

    With the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown, online learning has increased dramatically at our institution. Many instructors use Microsoft Teams for teaching, document sharing and communication with their students and spend most of their working days in their “permanent MS Teams classrooms”. It will be beneficial to, besides having Leganto available in the LMS and embedding a sharable Leganto reading list link in MS Teams, to have Leganto available as an app to add as a tab to the Teams the instructors have built for their courses. See screen capture attached.

  3. Library Discussion Notes - glowing indicator when accessed from notification 'bell' icon

    Some users report it is difficult to find Library Discussion Notes at the reading list level and also at the citation level.

    When they log into Leganto, and click on the 'bell' icon for notifications, it would be great if when they click the "New Library Discussion..." within the notifications, the screen would clearly show the new note with a bold red text or a glowing box on the new messages they received.

    It would be even better if Library Discussion was positioned before the Related Items and defaults to being open and easily spotted.

    Thanks!

  4. Add courses to User API

    We have a regular feed of user data from our student information system (SIS) into Alma. The SIS also holds course data, so we'd like to be able to simply include course enrolment data in the existing feed, rather than set up a separate process.

    As well as one process being better than two :-) it's a more practical fit to how the data is available. The current process for course enrolment in Leganto requires us to run one job for added courses and one job for deleted courses. But our SIS can't create a list of courses that have…

  5. Filter / Remove 'notes' from material type filter

    Notes are not a type of citations and shouldn't be grouped with books, journals, articles, websites, etc.
    They could easily be moved to filter-group that contains due dates and likes.

  6. section permalinks in Analytics or API

    We currently manually adding permalinks to Insendi, which is a VLE that Imperial staff have created and are selling to other universities. Some Imperial staff want to put specific section permalinks into specific weekly VLE posts. It would be better, if we could give them a list of permalinks from a Analytics or API export.

  7. course terms - change code to correspond with description

    We are about to start using Terms in Leganto. However, we have seen that you can only change the description of TERM1 etc. not the code. Therefore it is very confusing to remember TERM1 is All Year or TERM9 is Short Module - Spring. This will be difficult to work with when creating the course loader files for the annual rollover. It would be much better if you could change the code as well as the description in the course terms mapping table, so they match.

  8. List filter: Move Notes from 'Types' to 'Subject'

    The Filter tab contains four different categories: Section, Tag, Type, Subject.
    Notes are sorted in 'Type' even though they are not a type of citation. Ideally they should be sorted in 'Subject'

  9. Bulk updating of citations across reading lists

    Situation
    One of our tasks in checking reading lists is ensuring that the version of each title is the latest edition. Acquisitions staff will check book citations on a reading list and, if there is a newer edition available, purchase and replace the citation on the list with this new version.

    Problem
    When a specific title is used on multiple lists, Acquisitions staff are having to manually identify all citations using this title, add the newer edition to the reading list, and remove the older edition from the reading list.

    Staff are also having to manually transfer any specific reading/public/resource…

  10. Display logo and favicon in the Leganto configuration area

    When we upload a header logo and/or a Leganto favicon, it doesn't show in the configuration area. Having it there would improve the experience because it would be easy to see if you had uploaded a logo/icon or not, and which one it was.

    This isn't a huge problem, but it also seems like it could have a simple solution - just display the file and filename in the Alma config.

  11. Option to rename/customise the Rialto 'Add Items' search scope

    We have recently turned on the option for instructors to 'add items' using Rialto but this terminology is confusing for them.

    We would like the option to customise this heading e.g. 'Search our book supplier' or 'Rialto (Library book supplier)'
    This should encourage use and facilitate training.

    We would much prefer instructors use Rialto rather than Cite It to harvest from publisher websites. Cite It often misses key bib information and/or brings in erroneous e-links.

  12. Add in Leganto the possibility to get a QR code for a reading list

    As ExLibris / Leganto manager at Universidad de León (Spain), I would like to add in Leganto the possibility to get a QR code for a reading List, similar to the recent Primo VE enhancement. This will allow patrons quickly get a reading list whatever device they use, mainly when using mobile phones.

  13. Leganto marketing toolkit

    We love the images to market Leganto, made available by Ex Libris at https://go.proquest.com/Leganto_toolkit?utm_campaign=HQ_CS_Alma_Apr2021&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=136054310&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-9hnBBn-5Ej3AOiCvhlpgG49ATE_mC_yHRvptquh9fkYiNwXdjotGijUYCEfnsOTrV45Fz0j4llGlOwtS-KpqECKgOSIQ&utm_content=135764548&utm_source=hs_email.

    We take note that we can upload our institutional logo to these images but would like to be able to edit/add text also. This will allow us to adapt the Ex Libris message for our own needs and according to our own slogans and messages we wish to convey to our instructors.

  14. HTML in list notes and list and sections' description fields

    In some cases, an instructor needs to provide extra information to their student by referring to an external website.
    Use case: "All the citations in this section cannot be booked through the library but can be found in the compendium. More information <a>here</a>."

    It would be very useful to use HTML in the list notes, or in the description field of the list or sections. Both so instructors can use links, but also to make the information more visible if it comes after a long list of citations (in the case of a list note).

  15. Predefined searches to Find lists

    It is possible to create simple search-links to Leganto that gives you a list of reading lists that matches the query, e.g.:
    https://bibsys-xc.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/leganto/readinglist/searchlists?search=MGUEN101&auth=SAML

    We would like the possibility to use other and more specified fields the same way and build up an advanced search URL.

    Practical use-case: In the February 2021 release of Leganto new search fields were added to the advanced search for Term and Year. It would be useful to create a link that searches for reading lists for a specific year/term.

  16. Filter "My lists" by course

  17. Multiple assignees per list

    Some institutions would like the possibility to have several assigned librarians per lists.
    "We have many lists common to several campuses, and it will only increase in the future. In order to have a local overview, the campus libraries would like to be able to see the lists that are relevant to their campus. As of today this is difficult, as one one librarian can be assigned a list. We need to rely on manual processes (forwarding lists, and having manual overviews over which lists are for multiple campuses). This is difficult to maintain."

  18. Create brand new courses during rollover

    When we import course data into Alma, we use a program that extracts all the courses from our course database and produces a ready-to-use import file for any given institution. The course ID in this file is typically something like COURSE-AUTUMN-2021 (Course code, semester and year).

    We use the same file if we want to run a rollover, with some manual changes to it. We don't check if the courses we extracted are new, or if there is an existing course in Alma for the year before. Our starting point is the COURSE-ID column, and in OLD-COURSE-ID we write the…

  19. Find all lists for a faculty when courses are associated to subdepartments

    Would it be possible to change the structure of the Academic Department table so that Faculties and associated sublevel (institutes/department) are matched together in Alma/Leganto.

    When both faculties and institutes are visible in the Leganto search it creates an expectation for the user that by choosing a faculty, they will get to see reading lists for all courses within the faculty regardless of the department. However, as the courses are usually associated to the departments, they will get no results.

    Because of that we have recommended that our institutions upload either faculties or departments, not both, but we think it…

  20. Publish electronic records without inventory as e-book and not physical book

    We are a consortium, and we have a certain number of e-book records without inventory in our network zone. Deleting these records is not an option for us for various reasons.

    The expected Alma behavior for such records if there is no inventory is to publish as physical. It applies to both Primo and Leganto.

    Use case: an instructor uses the expanded search to check for newer edition of a book they have previously used in a reading list. They add what seems to be a newer physical edition from 2020. In reality, the record is an e-book published as…
