  1. 'Associated with Reading List' column when viewing Course list in Alma

    At the moment when viewing list of courses on Alma, the only way to find out if a course has a Reading List is to use the 'Associated Lists - Exist/None' facet, or by clicking the menu button of the course and then select 'Reading List'.

    It would be much more useful if there was a column that says if the course has an associated Reading List or not. Or even better - have a column to display the number of Reading Lists associated with the course.

  2. Have notification for "New comment was added to library discussion for item" link to the item in question

    In the Leganto notification system, the notification for "A new item was added to a list" provides links to both the relevant reading list and item, but the notification for "New comment was added to library discussion for item" only points to the list, not to the specific item that was commented on. Our instructors would appreciate being able to navigate directly to the relevant item/citation.

  3. Set location for physical reserves in request

    It would be helpful within Leganto for instructors to determine at either the course or the citation level which pickup location they want their course materials to reside. For libraries with central processing groups that manage multiple physical locations, we cannot always rely on faculty to put a note in the request.

  4. Add Citavi Integration to Leganto

    As a librarian from a German library just introducing Leganto I would recommend to add Citavi to Leganto.

    Citavi (https://www.citavi.com/de) is a widely used, sophisticated and user friendly reference management and knowledge organization software. It is available as site license to the members of most of German, Austrian and Swiss universities (see https://www.citavi.com/de/campuslizenzen) and additionally to some other European and overseas academic institutions (many Spanish speaking).

    A Citavi integration with Leganto would be an additional benefit and welcome feature especially to new Leganto users from D A CH where for example software like RefWorks in less widely…

  5. Improve Citations search (Alma workflows) e.g. include Journal title (and chapter title?)

    Hi,

    Staff find that the Citations search functionality in Alma/Course Reserves is not as effective as it could be for finding updates as the indexes which can be chosen do not cover sufficient citation metadata fields to allow for the most common searches to be supported.

    Currently the search options are:
    Citation ID
    Course Code
    Course Name
    Creator
    ISBN
    ISSN
    MMS ID
    Reading List Name
    Title

    However it is frequently the case when looking to update/correct citations that a Journal title would need to be searched, and unfortunately Title does not cover this aspect of the citation metadata when the…

  6. Hide suggestions from everyone who is not a list owner/collaborator

    At the moment materials suggested for lists are visible to everyone logged in to Leganto, as well as who suggested it and the comment they added.

    We'd prefer if suggestions were only visible to list owners/collaborators.

  7. Option to use multiple multilingual logos

    In Configuration > Leganto > UI > Branding > Logo Upoad > 'Load Leganto header logo' you can upload the logo that's gonna be displayed in the Leganto header.
    But only 1 logo can be uploaded.

    For institutions with different logos for different languages this is rather unfortunate

    Our guess is that having more than 1 logo is not an envisaged use-case (and probably a rare one, too).

    Still we would really like the ability to upload multiple logos to fit all UI languages in use.

  8. Quick Notifications to All Faculty

    During the pandemic, we've undergone numerous changes to reserve and library policies and it is cumbersome right now to quickly reach out to all list owners. We want to be able to use Leganto to push notifications quickly and easily to all users to alert them to policy changes.

  9. Allow students to access 'Course students' restricted lists via 'My Lists'

    If you use the "Course Students" publication status for a reading list, students must always use an LTI link from a VLE to view the list. This means students can't access all their lists from one place ("My Lists") which isn't good for the student experience.

    We would like there to be a way for students to only have to access the list via LTI once (if at all), after which they can access it from "My Lists".

  10. Automatically update reading list code in Alma

    When a list is 'rolled over', the new 'course' created in Alma has the correct code from the LMS e.g. Canvas. The correct code also appears in the 'reading list' in Leganto. However, in Alma the reading list copies the code from the previous year and adds a (1) to the end.
    As an example:
    In Alma the course code is: LAWU9CH202223AutumnA
    In Leganto the code is LAWU9CH
    202223AutumnA(2022/23)
    but in the Reading List in Alma it says LAWU9CH39_2020(1)(1)

    It would be much clearer for the reading list in Alma to automatically follow the same…

  11. Make the copyright approval "Number of students" field be a number

    Currently in Analytics, if a citation is associated with multiple courses then the "Citation Copyright"."Number of Students" field displays as eg "20;22;0". Ie it lists the number of students in each course, as a text field, rather than giving the total 42 as a number.

    This is effectively useless. Our copyright reporting requires the total number. And for statistical purposes I might want to multiply the number of students by the number of pages on a citation, which I can't do with a text field.

    Either

    a) this field should be a number containing the total by default (this would…

  12. Course Management System support for 2U

    One of our schools use the 2U Course Management system (https://2u.com/) but currently there is no integration available with Leganto, so our School of Education is doing their own course reading lists instead of using Leganto. Ideally, we want the school to use Leganto like the other schools do with D2L so that the reading lists are all managed within Alma.

  13. Add broken link reporting option to citation ellipsis menu

    Hello there,

    A student user navigating through a Leganto list sees the "View Online" button with the citations directly available in the list, without having to click into the full view each citation to access the content.

    They just click on the View Online circled in pink (see attached doc), and that opens a new tab in the browser bringing them to the content.

    If this link does not work, how can they report as a broken link? They have to conscious that it is necessary to fully open the citation up, and then click on the "Mark as broken"…

  14. Show explanation when file removal is disabled

    When instructorremovefile = true, instructors get the option to delete a file as long as that file hasn't gone through the copyright clearance process. If it is in/has gone through copyright clearance, the option disappears - but there's no explanation why, so it's confusing to them.

    It would be beneficial to show instructors a brief explanation that file removal has been disabled because it's subject to copyright clearance.

  15. Suggest Replacement feature - Handling citations with specific tags during course dates

    If the citation has a specific tag (7 Day, Reserve, etc. as defined by the institution), the course has started and the suggestion was approved:
    1. Mark the citation as ready for processing (or status of the choice of the institution)
    2. Add a citation task-list alert in Alma that the suggestion was approved
    This would allow staff to identify citations that needed action due to the new edition (e.g. copies need to be moved to high demand locations)

  16. My Collection > Increase limit

    The current limit of items you can have in your Leganto Collection is 1000.

    Would be good if we can increase it (or have it configurable) as we have academics wishing to export all their reading list/citations into their Collection from their previous institutions, and sometimes they exceed the limit

  17. Remove the fields "Required Chapters" and "Total Chapters Count" from the Copyright Attributes page when Book Extract is the citation materi

    Our Copyright Officer has informed the library to make a change in how we label our representations and to use Book Extract as the citation material type if only a few pages of a chapter are being used. This is a change for the library as we previously used Book Chapter and labelled the representation to indicate that only a part of the chapter has been used - example: Scan of chapter 3 [in part], p. 26-35: Moral constraints and the state.

    This is to ensure that the two fields are not accidently used by Library staff.

  18. Make subjects usable

    Currently the only way to assign a subject to a list is in the Leganto interface.

    The function to assign subjects should be added to:
    1. Alma when working on an individual list
    2. Alma - bulk assign a subject from the reading list task list - select reading lists then 'manage selected' then choose from the list of defined subjects
    3. Reading List bulk update job
    4. Instructor rollover operations - copy to be supported
    5. Course loader rollover - On rollover copy subject

    This would enable librarians to help with assigning disciplines/study areas to lists, and not leave…

    In the classic UI we created a bilingual template that included guidance notes for both instructors and students under each section heading. We would like the option to be able to create this template in the new UI, but we can only create section headings.

  20. View course name when selecting list in Cite It

    Currently you can only view the list name and course code. Instructors won't always be able to identify the correct list here, as they might not know the course code and their list might have a generic name ("Reading List") which does not offer any indication of the course.
