  1. Option to link Leganto citation metadata to Alma/Primo bibliographic data

    Bibliographic metadata for books is often improved in Alma/Primo after a citation has been created in Leganto. We would like the option to link the citation metadata from Alma/Primo so that when Alma/Primo metadata is updated, the Leganto citation metadata would be updated also.

  2. Allow subsections

    It would be helpful to allow the creation of subsections within each section. For example, I have a reading list and the sections are labeled Module 01, etc. In the syllabus, the instructor has 6-7 readings that say "choose one or two of these". This can be added as a public note on those specific readings, but it would be nice to have the option to create a subsection within that module instead - or some other way to group those readings together.

  3. Keep deleted citation records in the system

    When we remove a citation record the system delete it without any historical information.

    It would be very useful to mantain the information about the deleted citations (and be able to collect this information with Analytics, as is currently the case with bibliographic records) to perform tasks on the documents physically, like changing items location or removing stickers...

  4. Display Public Access Model message in Leganto

    At UNSW, we use portfolio’s Public Access Model to indicate if an eBook has unlimited or restricted access. The same message also shows in Primo so users are aware of the conditions before accessing eBooks.

    We believe the information will also benefit our Leganto users, but unfortunately, the message doesn’t display in Leganto, so we would like to propose the idea of displaying the Public Access Model message in Leganto.

    We raised a case with Ex Libris, but they said it is not part of their current development work plan.

  5. Rollover - Allow Excel files to be directly uploaded to course loader integrated profile

    Currently we have to create a spreadsheet for a course rollover, then re-format it into text tab delimited file and then add it to a FTP server before it can be run in the course loader integrated process. This is a long winded process where errors can creep in.

    It would be an improvement if you could upload the file directly in the Course loader integrated profile as a file upload. It would also be better if this upload could be an Excel spreadsheet rather than a text tab delimited file

  6. Importance tags - limit to one per citation

    We use importance tags to inform our purchasing, but often encounter citations which have been given multiple tags. We would find it useful to be able to configure the system to allow only one importance tag per citation.

  7. Report of instructors having opted in or out for notifications

    In Leganto, instructors can opt in or out to receive email notifications on events. In order to know to what degree we can rely on these for communications (and under what circumstances we need to approach the instructor by other means) we would like to create a report in Analytics (or in Alma) to see which instructors have opted in or out.

  8. Allow Leganto to display different general messages to different user groups

    Leganto February 2021 release included an Ideas Exchange introducing:
    “Two new parameters allow you to define when and to whom the value in the general message parameter will display…The new generalmessagerole parameter allows you to specify that the value in the general_message parameter will display only for the user role indicated”

    The University of New South Wales welcomes this enhancement. We believe that the ability to display a different message simultaneously in both Leganto Instructor and Student environments improves this communication functionality further.
    This provides the benefit of varying the wording of messages aimed at differing target groups.

  9. Add a librarian/reviewer field to Reading List in Alma

    We would like to have a possibility to add information about librarian/reviewer (a person who is responsible for processing the list) or list coordinator (someone who distributes/assigns lists to reviewers in a particular department) to reading list in Alma. It should be an editable field, available for rollover, and visible in Analytics in Course Reserves Subject Area.

    In the future this information can be used to configure the following auto-assign-workflow: when the list owner sends a list to the library, the list changes its status to Ready for processing, Reviewer/Coordinator is activated as an assignee, and a message about auto-assign…

  11. Improve functionality of Courses API

    We use the Courses API to load units from our Learning Management System into Alma/Leganto. We would also like to use it to roll over reading lists, however, it is missing key functionality that we require for our workflows.
    Because of this we have to manually roll over lists. During peak times this is a weekly job and takes up an undue amount of staff time.
    The 2 main improvements we would like to see are:
    -Addition of Write functionality for Tags: We rollover citation tags and this is not supported by the API.
    -Citation Copyright: When trying to create…

  12. Additional brief citation information for instructors - New UI

    Can the brief citation view for Instructors in the new Leganto UI be made the same as the student view, where all citation details are visible? Currently if there are multiple editions of the same book, or material with very similar titles it is very hard to quickly tell them apart as only the title is visible. If a new instructor has to review an existing reading list, it takes them much more time in the new UI as they have to open each citation to see complete details.

    This also affects processing staff who work in Leganto, who are…

  13. Availability of “Request digitization”: Take item policies and existence of a digitization department into account

    In the Leganto UI, the option “request digitization” is sometimes displayed although digitization is actually not possible. There are two different cases:

    1. he item belongs to a library without digitization department.
      If an item belongs to a library without digitization department, the option “request digitization” is still available in the associated citation in Leganto. If an instructor tries to send a digitization request for such an item, an error message is displayed.

    2. The item has an item policy that does not allow digitization.
      If an item associated with a citation in Leganto has a “no copy” item policy, the option…

  14. Better interoperability – add a new symbol in Alma as an indication when an attachment is hidden in Leganto

    We use the Leganto citation ‘Hide link’ feature to hide attachments from the Student view.

    As UNSW process reading lists in Alma, it will be helpful if there is a symbol to indicate the attachment is hidden so we don’t have to select the "View in Leganto" for each citation to check whether the attachment is hidden or not.

    We manually add a tag to show if an attachment is hidden, but it is not practical.

    It will be even better if the ‘Hide link’ option is available in Alma, in addition to Leganto.

    Thank you.

  15. Sort citations by section in Alma

    ​Most of our institutions use a two-section structure in Leganto, where one section is recommended literature. Citations in this section are not treated the same way by the library as "mandatory citations". Hence the need to sort citations in reading lists by section in Alma.

    The feedback we got from an institution is that they would like "Section" to be a filter/dropdown menu where they can choose a specific section, the same way the tag menu works.

  16. Limit the number of times an importance tag can be used on a reading list

    We would find it very useful to set a limit on the number of times a tag can be used on a list – for example to configure tags so that only one item per reading list can be tagged as Core. We use this tag to flag items requested for our eTextbook Programme and this would help us avoid the issue of multiple Core-tagged items.

  18. Vertically align the "view online" button in citations

    Hello. We are migrating from Talis to Leganto.

    In Talis, our students can see the "View Online" button clearly in the bookmarks. This button is always in the same place as they scroll through the list. See the first attached image. It makes for a consistent UX. Students primarily access their reading list content electronically (including articles, websites, scanned chapters) rather than finding a print copy on the shelves.

    In Leganto however, the "View Online" button comes after the print holding locations in the citation. This means that as the user scrolls through the list, the "View Online" location in…

  19. Use the “Course Reserves Automatic Statuses” regardless of rollover type when recalculating citation status

    Idea based on SalesForce case 00938590

    TLDR: Use the “Course Reserves Automatic Statuses” regardless of rollover type when recalculating citation status.

    In Leganto, there are two ways of initiating a rollover:

    A: Directly in the Leganto interface by staff or instructors
    B: Via a Course Loading Integration Profile in Alma

    When a rollover is initiated through the Leganto interface, it follows certain rules set in the system (Configuration Menu > Leganto > List Management > Instructor Rollover Operations). If «Citation statuses» is set to “Recalculate”, the rollover process treats all the citations as if they were new and consults the…
