  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Increase the Loading Performance of Larger Reading Lists

    We would like to be able to create reading lists with more than 100 items, but they tend to load slowly when we do. Please increase the loading performance of reading lists so that we can create larger lists without impacting usability. We would like to see at least 300 items in a list without negatively impacting performance.

  7. Add option for Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter to be "opt in" by default

    Hello,

    We had the Leganto Detailed Notifications Letter switched on, but because there is no option currently for this to be "opt in" by default rather than "opt out" by default, we have had to switch it off again. We are only in our pilot phase so may consider switching the Letter back on later when most of our staff are using Leganto RLs. But for now it's not ideal for all instructors to get notifications when they aren't using Leganto.

    We don't have control over how many instructors are attached to our courses, and because of the way courses…

  8. Allow more than one digitization department for Leganto requesting

    If you want to allow faculty to place digitization requests in Leganto, you can only specify a single department to manage these requests. This could either be at the institution level or inside an individual library. However, this is a problem if your institution has multiple campuses/libraries that may each want to manage their own digitization request workflows.

    This enhancement would allow general systems administrators to specify multiple digitization departments in place of the current “managing_department” setting in configurations under Fulfillment --> Copyright Management --> Leganto Copyright Settings.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Reading List Status Changes based on Citations Statuses and Assignees

    It would be great if the manual process of Changing a Reading List Status could be automated by Alma dependant on factors like Assignee being set to someone, rather than being for the Reading List. This could trigger the List Status to change from Waiting for Processing to Being Processed.

    Another Reading List Status automation we would suggest is that when every Citation in a Reading List is marked Citation Status Complete, this could trigger the Reading List Status to be updated Complete.

    Both of these Reading List Status changes are things that need to be performed manually at present…

  15. Find all lists for a faculty when courses are associated to subdepartments

    Would it be possible to change the structure of the Academic Department table so that Faculties and associated sublevel (institutes/department) are matched together in Alma/Leganto.

    When both faculties and institutes are visible in the Leganto search it creates an expectation for the user that by choosing a faculty, they will get to see reading lists for all courses within the faculty regardless of the department. However, as the courses are usually associated to the departments, they will get no results.

    Because of that we have recommended that our institutions upload either faculties or departments, not both, but we think it…

  16. Create a history tab on Course records in Alma

    When looking at a course record in Alma, you can see which students are currently enrolled, along with other information about the course and who the instructors are. However, the course record doesn't have a history tab at all, so there's no record of any changes that may have happened to a course over time.

    Keeping such a history would be valuable - it would help to know if the begin and end dates have been changed, or when instructors were added or removed.

    The changes are in Alma but this functionality would be very helpful for us as Leganto…

  17. Add a Leganto-specific email address after "Reply to" in notification letters

    Some institutions use a Leganto-specific email address, which they would like to add at the end of the Leganto notifications letters, where it says "Reply to" (see attachment).

    The address listed after that (Contact us) is a general email address for the library/institution.

    Not all of them may need to use different addresses but it would be nice to have the option.

    Could you consider making the necessary changes, and add a <leganto_email> element in the XML as well (XML to letter admin)?

  19. Shibboleth SSO authentication for Refworks

    Recently the new version of RefWorks created SSO authentication process for Users. We have enabled this process. However, currently when users export records from Leganto to Refworks. It isn't allowed in many cases. As users need to use their new Refworks username and password. For Leganto to login to RefWorks and export the record.
    Solution. It would be better if users in Leganto could use SSO to sign into Refworks. So a specific new RefWorks password is no longer needed.

  20. Display series information in citation details

    It would be useful if book series information (from the title record 440 and/or 490 fields) could be surfaced in citation metadata details. This is important information which should be displayed for the benefit of our users.
