  1. Enable translation of reading list texts

    The Leganto UI supports multiple languages, which is very helpful. It is however not possible to translate individual texts of reading lists, such as their titles, into different languages.

    Please enable the following:


    1. A way to easily input in multiple (at least two) languages a) reading list titles, b) section names, c) citation public notes, d) section notes, and e) possibly other such reading list related texts that are not part of the bibliographic metadata.


    2. That the relevant translated text (as per above) be displayed depending on what language the user has selected for the UI in the Leganto language…

  2. Allow users (especially students) to add a note when link is marked as broken

    When checking the broken link alerts each morning we often have to email the users to diagnose their access issues. It would save time if the user could add a short note at the point when they click 'Mark as broken'.

  3. Add text to Add-item button

    Some of our institutions think that the Add-item button is not very intuitive and wish they could customize it, for example by adding text.

  4. More visible separation between course lists and My lists

    When clicking on a permalink to a specific course, the lists associated to this course appear first on the page, followed by one's own list.

    A thin line separate the first lists from "My lists" but this line is almost invisible and confuses a lot of users.

    This line/separation should be thicker/more visible.

  5. Set order and default option in File Upload Copyright Options

    We would like to control the order of display of the File Upload Copyright Options and to be able to set which one is the default option.

    There is no configuration to do this currently in the File Upload Copyright Options table

  7. Customer setting to disable automatic assignment of reading lists

    We would like the option to globally disable the automatic assignment of reading lists to staff who work on a list. Automatic assignment adds an extra step when staff are searching for lists.

  8. 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…

  9. Support associating a reading list to a course via an API or similar

    Alma/Leganto supports associating a reading list to multiple courses, but only manually, using the Alma interface.

    Please support associating an existing reading list to an existing course via an API, or a batch job or some other mechanism that can be automated.

    Without such a functionality, it is impossible to effectively integrate the feature "associating reading lists with multiple courses" with external systems, thus rendering it much less viable.

  10. Manage Digital Representations

    When looking at a citation, we would like to be able to see if "Manage Digital Representations" has been ticked by looking at the citation information without having to click through to "Manage Digital Representations" to check. Could a filter be added to filter what hasn't been checked on a reading list or some indication on the citation information section?

  11. 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.

  12. Configuration - Disable file upload in reading lists

    Institutions should be left the choice to deal with - or not - copyright issues regarding uploaded materials.

    The possibility to upload materials to reading lists in Leganto should be a configuration parameter, allowing libraries to switch it on or off.

    Uploading files to "My Collection" is of course not problematic.

  13. 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…

  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.

  16. 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)?

  17. 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.

  18. 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)?

  19. List Publishing - allow Publish button (from Sept 29 release) to be a Publish/Unpublish toggle)

    Further to previous list publication ideas which have been progressed through to being added to Leganto,
    https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/33503525-improve-the-visibility-of-publish-list-option

    and
    https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/34061209-publish-needs-to-be-become-more-visible-and-a-dual

    It would be useful if the September 2019 option to display a Publish button in a list was actually a Toggle between Publish and Unpublish (or Draft).

    Currently it is a little confusing (as it was before the Publish button was added as an option) to have the publish button appear, but once clicked, it disappears into the List menu as an 'Unpublish' option.

    This is confusing to Instructors as it is not immediately apparent what has happened to the publish…

  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.
