  1. Alerts

    We would prefer a shorter way to view citation notes within Alma, either by clicking on a note within the overview (see attachment ‘Citation note’) or by display of details (‘the note’) within the overview. Now we have to go to Edit > Notes to see the requests/remarks that are essential for our services to instructors.

  2. 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…

  3. Use Analytics to surface information on user activity in My Collection

    We would like to use Analytics to see user activity in My Collection, for example how many times a title has been added to My Collection (but not necessarily added to a reading list).

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Reading list visibility/searchable in Google

    Our institutions wonder if it is possible to make the reading lists visible in Google so that the students can get the reading lists if they search for the course code or a topic that is covered by the reading list.

    I tried to look in the documentation, but could not find anything about this.

    Is there a possibillity to make the lists visible/indexed by Google (e.g. by a sitemap or similar)?

  7. 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…

  8. Changing a name on a reading list in Leganto can not be saved when Alma is open

    When changing the title of a reading list in Leganto it is changed back after a short while. We have found a way around it with having Alma closed when updating the title in Leganto.

    We would like to be able to change the name in Leganto without having to close Alma for it to be saved.

  9. 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…

  10. Filters/sorting/duplicates

    Filters/sorting/duplicates

    It is possible to look for citations within Alma’s persistent searchbox, but we would prefer a sorting function (A-Z) or a searchbox within a list. This would help looking for a citation while staying in a readinglist. Furthermore, it would help to detect unintended duplicates which have been added from, for example, ‘My Collection’ AND Repository Search AND Zotero. Or is it possible to mark duplicated citations?

  11. Drag citations from list into My Collection

    Could functionality be added so that citations which appear in lists can be copied to My Collection by drag and drop (rather than via options > copy to collection).

    This seems logical, as you can do the reverse action to copy a citation from My Collection to a list via drag and drop.

  12. Remove citations' redundant punctuations

    We noticed that there are redundant punctuations displayed in the citations added from Alma, could these redundant punctuations not show when adding the citations into the reading list?

    I do know that Leganto uses "," to separate different fields like author, edition and publisher. It would be clearer and easier for students to read the details of the citations without these redundant punctuations.

    We notice that what appears in the MARC record would be directly copied to the citation, please could an enhancement be made to check if the existing field has punctuation at the end and remove it from…

  13. 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.)

  14. Removal of standard blank template and ability to create a default institution template which cannot be deleted

    We would like to remove or hide the standard out of the box blank template and have a standard institutional template which cannot be deleted or customized. This would ensure that reading lists created by instructors are of the same standard.

  15. Leganto Analytics - add functionality to identify rolled over reading lists

    At UNSW we encourage academics to use the Leganto Instructor Rollover feature. We need to report on percentage of reading lists that have been rolled over for each of the terms. This information would help us to track how our reading lists are re-used, and understand the impact of this functionality.

  16. Book covers shown with citations to be retrieved from several sources

    Showing the cover of a book togheter with the citation is a feature well appreciated by both students and instructors.

    According to Ex Libris, the two sources for thumbnails in Leganto are Google and Syndetics.

    We would like Leganto to be able to retrieve thumbnails from several sources, as is the case with Primo today.

  17. Update tags via API

    Currently, the Tags API is limited to retrieving tags. We would like the ability to be able to update and/or remove tags in bulk via a script using the API.

  18. Move away from Reading Lists and toward embeddable documents!

    Canvas allows for professors to include content altogether on a weekly/unit basis (called Modules). Reading Lists doesn't respect that format and complicates instruction. We should be able to embed library resources directly into Canvas through an iframe/LTI into whichever Module we like.

  19. Index Start Page and End Page for Book Chapter and Document type citations in Analytics

    Start and end pages for article type citations are currently indexed in Analytics, and Article Number of Pages is present/calculated in Analytics. Start Page and End Page for Book Chapter and Document type citations, as well as Total Pages for Document citations are not.

    We'd like to share this data with our Copyright Clearance department without using a workaround.

  20. Option to change the default tab on the Reading Lists Tasks List page in Alma

    We'd like either a global option to set the default tab to All or an option for each user to select their own preference. This would improve the workflow for staff because they often collaborate on Reading Lists and searching from the All tab is preferable to searching from the other tabs.
