  1. Show all user IDs where more than one user reports broken citation link

    The Edit Citations area in Alma only shows the user ID of the most recent user to mark a citation link as broken. If more than one user has marked the same link as broken then this is shown by a number, but you cannot see the previous user IDs.

    This is hugely problematic for our team as we try to follow up with all users by email, either to let them know that a broken link has been fixed or to ask for more information for troubleshooting purposes.

  2. View list citations in different referencing styles

    Would it be possible to apply different bibliographic styles within the Leganto list view, as well as being able to apply these when exporting to Word format.

  3. Add a "Refresh" option in the Edit Reading List page in Alma so that changes in the Leganto front-end can be cross-checked more efficiently

    When working with Leganto front end, there is "refresh" option at the top of the reading list which makes it easy to update things when editing to make sure the latest detail are visible, particularly seeing changes made in Alma reflected in the leganto list.

    However, for Library staff there is no easy way of "refreshing" the Alma view to reflect any changes made in Leganto. This leads to users
    i) refreshing the browser ("F5") in the Alma view, which takes you out of the list
    ii) Going in and out of the Edit Reading list view to update it …

  4. Showing "Related Items" to student users

    Please allow to shown the "related Items" to student users. A Professor just told us that he found it should be useful to students but his students are not able to see this part.

  5. Move Material type field to the top of the Editing form

    We think the field for material type should be moved to the top of the Editing form.
    This makes sense for several reasons.
    - It makes sense to define a document before registering it, and that’s where cataloguers start.
    - Different document types have different sets of fields, and choosing the material type first would ensure that the instructor starts registering in the correct form.
    - When changing the material type during the process, some fields may move or disappear, including fields the instructor had just been working on, leading to a poor user experience.
    - User creating a chapter…

  6. Citation can have several resources associated with it Add ability to have another hierarchy in the reading list

    Citation can have several resources associated with it
    Add ability to have another hierarchy in the reading list like folder with metadata information, that will aggregate several citation beneath it to allow different editions etc.

  7. Retain the original 'request for review' date

    Due to administrative deadlines etc we are interested in knowing when the list was first sent for review to the library. As of now we are experiencing that this date is updated when/if a course instructor submits the reading list again, which means we lose the original date.

    Our suggestion is that the original date is retained in a separate field.

  8. Move citations in bulk from a list to My Collection rather than only one by one

    Moving citations one by one through the options menu is painful. Users should be able to move all citations in a list, or selected subsets of citations in a list to My Collection. The ability to select and copy all or select some and copy is a very common usability feature for list management.

    This would really make My collection the easiest way to search and find previously used materials across course lists.

  9. Improve courses usability in Alma

    I'm currently updating lots of instructors in course records. It would really help if there was a way to limit either by filter or facets for the course year in addition to Status, Term and Academic department.

    Ideally adding Courses to the persistent search bar and providing facets would be marvellous, but in the interim adding Year to the filters would help. Also, being able to sort by year, academic department would be nice.

  10. Allow Find lists to enable course-level discovery (and departmental browsing) of lists

    The current Find lists (February 2018) page is focused on individual List discovery. It does not support overall course-level discovery very well at all (especially for courses with multiple lists).

    A 'structured search' can be done, choosing an academic department but no search term (really this is "browsing"). It returns individual lists of reading lists rather than a list of courses for which contain relevant lists.

    Course level discovery would meet student expectations of how they see their courses/modules from the course or programme level, and allow student to see other module reading much more simply by seeing all courses…

  11. Ability to retrieve deleted list sections or individual citations

    Ability to retrieve deleted list sections or deleted individual citations. When deleting individual list sections or individual citations from a list, could the deleted items be held in an area (e.g. "trash bin") so as to be retrievable if deleted in error. Could this functionality be available for both instructors and librarians.

  12. Add course context to notifications in Leganto

    Currently (March 2018) notifications in Leganto don't really provide any course context, or grouping on the basis of course, e.g.
    "- A new item was added to a list
    New item added to the reading list [list name]
    [User] added [title details]"

    which means that for users with many courses (students or instructors), and with several lists for a course, the context of what has really been added to where is quite confusing, or at least not very useful since the viewer has no real sense of what the change aplies to, rather they can only see the fact of…

  13. Option to receive email notifications for new or changed citations submitted by instructors

    We'd like the option to receive emailed notifications for new or changed citations submitted by instructors. This option should be configurable to allow Library staff to select either immediate notifications for each change or daily digests. Each reading list should have the option for staff to indicate whether if they'd like notifications for that list.

  14. Leganto Instructor Rollover - Relocate "Roll Over List" to appear next to "SEND LIST" button

    As Library staff, I would like the Roll Over List button to be placed at a more obvious spot in Leganto, so instructors can easily find the button and Rollover their Lists with fewer clicks.

    UNSW Library will enable the Leganto Course Instructor Rollover in November 2018. We want instructors to use this feature, and not be confused with the Duplicate List option.

    Current Behavior:
    1. Instructor opens a Reading List in Leganto
    2. clicks on Reading list options menu option
    3. selects "Roll Over List", which is beneath "Duplicate List"
    Concerns:
    a. They need to know where the button…

  15. 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…

  16. Display related title electronic / physical availability in Alma citation search

    We rely on related records to enable all availability options to display where different formats have separate bib records (as a citation can only be resource located to one record at a time). It would be useful if a 'Related' availability tab could appear in Alma alongside Physical, Electronic, Digital and Other.

  17. Language as part of citation

    We would like that the language of the document to be part of the citations. In a non-english speaking country as Norway there are political interest to see how much of the reading are in Norwegian and how much that are in other languages.

    Language is a part of the records in Alma, and also for the records that are fetched from Primo, so it should be possible populate automatically a vast majority of the (new) records added to a list if there is a field for language.

    It must also be possible to generate reports in analytics based on…

  18. Leganto Viewer

    Uploaded documents in Leganto can only be downloaded and cannot be viewed online. Students often consult Leganto from different devices. We think it would be agreat feature if ExLibris could implement the option to view files directly via a 'Leganto/(Alma)' viewer?
    And in addition it would be great if it is possible to make notes within a document in Leganto (within the body text of a file) (cf. Mendeley)? (Via the viewer?)

  19. Order and remove citations in leganto, so users only have the best links at the top of a page.

    When an article is available from multiple places, Leganto shows all possible links, which looks messy and can be confusing. It would be preferable to be able to suppress certain links, or re-order them so the 'best' link is at the top. If a link is added manually, Alma automatically overrides it and shows all the links again.

  20. Leganto navbar (add 'useful links' to the top of the Leganto User Interface)

    The navigation bar (banner/header) in the Leganto User Interface currently does not have the functionality to add 'useful links/URLs (like it does in Primo VE e.g. header links to a 'new search', 'library homepage', 'help', etc.) to it. The ability to add URLs/links to the navigation bar would allow our patrons to access institution specific materials/webpages, such as, user manuals, copyright information, Library homepage, Primo VE, etc..
