  2. Identify and combine related editions in Leganto

    Problem: A lack of FRBRisation in bibliographic records in Alma means that in Leganto different formats of the same title can only be offered on individual citations, i.e. the print edition will be one
    citation, and the eBook will be on another citation. We want to be able to offer all available formats of a title to our students.

    Impact: Without the ability to combine citations of the print and electronic version of the same title, they currently appear as if they are two required readings (see attachment 1).

    The lack of ability to combine multiple versions of the same…

  3. Customise mandatory fields per citation type

    Currently the only mandatory field for a citation is "Title". We would like to be able to customise which fields are mandatory depending on the item type, so that instructors are prompted to fill out more than just the title when adding items from outside of our collections.

    We often find tutors fill out the title and add a URL, but if that URL breaks then just the title isn’t always sufficient information to find a new link to the resource. Having just the title also doesn't give students much information to work with when judging which resources to engage…

  4. 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.

  5. Hide locations from Resource Locate

    Hide locations from Resource Locate

    We would like an option to filter out specific locations for the resource locate functionality in Leganto.

    For legal reasons we can't purge lost/discarded items, they have to remain in Alma where they are collected in locations that are suppressed from discovery so they don't show up in Primo. Unfortunately that doesn't exclude them from being used as positive results for resource locating even though they are not actually available.

    We also have several collections that are not accessible to people but (some of them) show up in Primo. Those are also items we wouldn't…

  6. Include text of Library Discussion Note in Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter

    Could the actual text of the Library Discussion Note be included for Instructors when they receive a Notification that there is an outstanding Library Discussion via the Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter.

    Currently, the Letter only tells the Instructor that there is a Library Discussion waiting for them. They then need to log-in to Leganto to see what it is. Providing the text would enable the Instructor to determine whether they need to log-in to Leganto and action something in the list or not, and would bring the letter in line with other email notifications e.g. service desk messages, where they…

  7. Make page range fields obligatory for book chapters and book extracts

    The total number of pages on a list is retrieved from the page range fields for book chapters and book extracts, when these fields are filled out. If they are not, the book's total number of pages is used in the calculation.

    It is not likely that this field is going to be relevant when choosing these material types so it should not be used in the calculation.
    As of today it is possible to look up a book, change it to book chapter, and save it as is, without having changed the page number at all. This causes the…

  8. Hide instructors ability to restrict access to reading lists based on time intervals

    In Leganto, instructors have a lot of opportunities to restrict access to the reading list by setting specific time intervals where resources are visible. This includes separate settings for entire reading lists, sections, citations and uploaded material. We have received reports from our libraries that these functions are sometimes used incorrectly by the instructors. The instructors often do not grasp all the consequences of using these features and end up causing these resources to become unavailable at inopportune times and not knowing why. For instance, an instructor might set the reading list to be visible from August 10th – December…

  9. Allow removal of LTI-added lists from My lists by users themselves

    It would be useful for all categories of user - Instructor, Student and Librarian to have the facility to actively remove any list/s which have been added to their My lists page either by dint of being a course or list owner, OR simply by having follow the LTI link from a VLE/CMS/LMS course link.

    Librarian staff have ended up stuck with lists because of this, but also because we wish normally to auto add instructor role and auto add instructor as owners, it would still be useful to allow all users to actively decide to control what they have…

  10. Notification function for Library Staff

    To add the notification function for Library Staff to notify the Library Staff by email if the citations have the following changes:

    • A tag was added to an item
    • A tag was removed from an item
    • A comment was added to a citation
    • A submit lists by date was added to your course
    • New library discussion in citation
    • The due date was updated in an item
    • A new item was added to a list
    • Item status marked as complete
    • Item status marked as declined
    • You have joined a reading list as a collaborator
    • Reading list was deleted
    • List was rolled…

  11. Multiple processing departments for instructor digitization requests

    Today, Leganto configuration includes a hardcoded processing department for instructor digitization requests.
    Idea: Define a new logic for auto-picking the digitization processing department from multiple departments.

  12. Automatic enrichment (update) of reading list citations

    We are looking at using Rialto and ordering from Leganto looks to be a good option as Academics can place requests (Purchase requests) through the system. Ideally we would like the entry in Leganto to update the citation and status automatically once a bib is attached to the citation.

  13. Add Unpaywall full text availability in Leganto

    We have enabled links to Unpaywall in Primo VE with the "enableopenaccessservicesfromunpaywallapi" setting in Config->Fulfillment->General->Other Settings. However, these links don't appear in Leganto, only Primo. I opened a case with Support [#00984855] and they confirm that this is the expected behaviour: the Unpaywall Open Access API service is presently only available through Primo.

    Our Leganto users would benefit from having Ex Libris add Unpaywall full text availability to Leganto, so that they could easily see these resources are available. Some Leganto users would see the "Full text not available" and not use the resource…

  14. Add a "Set complete" option for Library staff to the Edit Multiple items options

    In November 2020 the Edit Multiple Items option was added to the Leganto interface. One option which would really help Library staff when processing and checking lists would be to add the "Set Complete" option (only visible to Library staff) to the bulk options (delete, add notes, visibility dates etc.)

  15. Manage Digital Representations

    When looking at a citation, we would like to be able to see if "Manage Digital Representations" has been ticked by looking at the citation information without having to click through to "Manage Digital Representations" to check. Could a filter be added to filter what hasn't been checked on a reading list or some indication on the citation information section?

  17. 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…

  18. Hide resource locate on article citations

    The Resource Locate function appears in Row Actions List in Alma for article citations. Articles do not need to be located, just resolved. The default behavior (when not resource located) is that the URESOLVER applies the date restrictions. Portfolios falling outside of the holdings period for that specific journal are filtered out.

    However, when resource located, the citation is viewed as a journal and shows all portfolios attached to the journal's bib. record. In order to prevent this from happening, we suggest the resource locate option be hidden in Alma for this type of citation.

  19. Let teachers make their own content open access

    We have three kinds of content:
    * copyrighted material - should never be OA
    * teacher-created content that they want to keep to their class only
    * teacher-created content that they'd like to share with other teachers and/or use to promote their class

    To accommodate this third group, we'd like functionality that would let teachers tag content they've uploaded to be made open access. Functionality should:

    • make teachers confirm they (or the university as their employer) own the IP

    • let them choose a Creative Commons license

    • provide a permalink for the item where it's accessible publically

    • provide a platform where…

  20. Display templates and other elements in the interface language

    In today's interface, if you want the same template in different languages, you have to either create one for each language, or remember to have both languages in the section title when creating the template.

    EX: Section 1: Obligatorisk/Mandatory

    Templates consist of a name, description and section names. The person creating the template could be given the option to translate these fields when creating the template. Of course, it would be an advantage if templates could be edited later on.

    All templates should be visible regardless of the interface language, but the template should be shown in the same language…
