  1. 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.

  2. Display physical / electronic availability for citations in Analytics (Course Reserves and Instructor Usage subject areas)

    Physical (print) and electronic (ebook) availability cannot be added as columns in these Analytics subject areas. This would be hugely beneficial for most of our daily reports and workflows as we try to ensure that a certain number of copies or electronic versions are available for resources added to reading lists.

    An additional requirement is for availability to be shown for records related to the citation. This is because we have separate title records for physical (print) holdings and electronic (ebook) portfolios, and use the related_records parameter in Leganto Customer Settings to display availability for all available formats at citation…

  3. allow course archiving as well as reading list

    The title says it all. Alma allows you to archive reading lists, which is useful--this leaves them as reportable in Analytics but removes them from Alma -- however strangely this function does not exist for at the course level, including the course that contains any archived reading lists. Since we get new course records every semester, this leaves a lot of expired courses that our reserves staff have to wade through, and makes this archiving feature note very useful for the course management workflow. If you deleted courses, any reading lists that had been archived would disappear from Analytics.

  4. Rejected Purchase Request - not detaching brief BIB in Alma Course Reserves

    If we place a Purchase Request through Alma Course Reserves - the system generates a brief BIB with MMS ID against the citation. But if the Purchase Request is Rejected, the brief BIB is deleted from Alma (proper) but not from Alma Course Reserves and the citation remains resource located against the brief BIB that will not be fulfilled.

    Currently, we are manually detaching these citations but do think that if the brief BIB is deleting in Alma proper it should be reflecting in Alma Course Reserve.

    Can the brief BIB be removed from the citation in Alma Course Reserves…

  5. Stopping list creation from Leganto interface

    Allow libraries to configure an option to stop academics creating new reading lists from the Leganto interface, but still allow them to edit lists created by the library.

  6. Instructor role - view reading list status from Leganto

    With the instructor role, the reading list status is not displayed when working on the list from Leganto.
    We find it very necessary for the instructor to know at all times what state the reading list is in so that when the process is finished, he can publish the list. We ask that this privilege be included in the instructor role.

  7. Allow website to be default CiteIt! material type rather than Other

    When checking lists created by academics, when they use Citeit! and if the site is not recognised/supported, the default material type chosen by Citeit! is "Other", but other is not very helpful when almost all of the time the material type is effectively website at least by definition. It would be useful if it was possible to configure it to default non-recignised/supported websites to be added as Website citation material type (non repository citations added via CiteIt!) as it would save Library staff having to edit these for no real benefit, either in terms of metadata checks, or in terms…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  11. Sections

    We prefer the option to add sections or move citations to different sections within Alma. The assigned section is shown for each citation in the overview of the Readinglist (see attachment ‘Section Alma’) but it only possible to change a section by drag&drop in Leganto. This is less convenient for librarians when we create or change a list on behalf of an instructor (and work from Alma). For lists that have a lot of sections and citations, the moving of citations in Leganto is also not the most user-friendly way (and the most secure way – a citation is easily…

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Support http protocol in reading list and section description fields

    At the moment URLs in the description fields of reading lists and sections are handled as plain text whereas URLs in public notes are automatically recognized as links and behave as such.
    We'd like to see this functionality for all text fields in the Leganto UI. URLs should always be clickable links.

  16. 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.

  17. Make it easier to edit templates within Leganto

    Once a template has been created it is not possible to update or edit it without saving it as a new template. It also means that other lists using the original template aren't updated and have to be updated manually. We would like the option to edit templates more easily and for any changes to be saved to all reading lists using that template.

  18. 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.

  20. External Job Notifications

    It would be great if Leganto was able to send external email notifications once a job is complete i.e. Course Load and Enrollment Load. This would eliminate the need for a user to manually go into Leganto to validate jobs, especially if the uploads are using an FTP server and running under a recurrence.

    An email notification would be sent to either a user's email or company email distribution list that would include the status of the job - successful or completed with errors.

    A nice to have would be for the email to include the Event Descriptions.

    Initial thoughts…
