  1. 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…

  2. Add option to import citations in bulk to "Search the Library" and "Import References"

    Currently, it is only possible to add one single citation at a time to a reading list when using "Search the Library" or "Import References from Zotero/from Mendeley". It would be very convenient if instructors could select multiples citations in the results list and import them in bulk into the reading list.

  3. Allow configuration of the "Most Common" items types displayed at Add Item in Leganto

    When adding items in the Leganto user interface, the material type list is long, but a small number of material types are given prominence as "Most common". For the purposes of assisting instructors to correctly add certain item types (extracts, Eoffprints, etc, it would be very useful to be able to add items to this list or configure what appears. The most common is much larger and clearer and so for lesser used but important material types it can prove difficult for instructors to find them causing extra work and more unnecessary queries for library staff.

  4. Zotero/ Mendeley Import: Add option to select a folder/ a collection

    In Zotero and Mendeley, users can organize their references in folders or collections. In Leganto, however, citations from reference management systems can only be imported at the library level (everything). Especially for users with extensive reference collections, it would be much clearer if a specific folder or a specific collection could be selected when importing citations into Leganto.

  5. Automatically checking if a newer edition exists

    When instructors create reading lists, they're often interested in the newest edition of a book, but may not be aware that a newer edition exist.
    If they're library doesn't have it or (when searching in a broader scope) if no one in the consortium has catalogued it yet, they won't find it.
    In any case, automatically checking if such an edition exist would be a nice feature.

  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. Deactivate filters in “lists” area and filters related to citations inside the lists

    We would like to have the possibility to deactivate filters in “lists” area and filters related to citations inside the lists.
    Some of these types of filters are not relevant for us.

    For Examples:

    CITATION FILTERS:
    - DUE DATE: no due date in our workflows. Once published, lists and citations have to be always available to our patrons.
    - STATUS: citation status are related to the activities carry out by librarians, instructors don’t need to see them
    LIST FILTERS:
    - COURSE STATUS: the distinction between active and inactive course is not relevant for us
    - LIST TYPE: we automatically create…

  9. Complete change log for reading lists

    Our Instructors are in need of a feature that allow them to retrieve/view a complete change log for reading lists.

    The feature ‘View recent changes’ is somewhat similar, but the feed currently only display changes made by others - not your own. It would be great if this feature were expanded to include all changes made on a list.

    Being able to review all changes made to a reading list is not only useful for monitoring a list, it is also an important collaboration tool – primarily with fellow Instructors, but also e.g. when reviewing course material changes with faculty…

  10. Enable set-creation for citations, reading lists, and courses

    At the moment, creating sets for Leganto to run jobs on is a pain - contratry to other indices in Alma you can't just click 'Save Query' and then run a job on the set.
    No, you have to create a list either from an Excel export or Analytics and then create an itemized set from it.

    This is extremely annoying because you have to create a new input list and a new set every time you need to run a job.

    Please enable the creation of (logical) sets for citations, reading lists, and courses from a search in Alma…

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  14. Save a selection of Citation menu option as the default view

    When entering Citation view to process current course reserves, you must first always select from the List Assigned to menu "Assigned to me" and then apply various other filters to limit the view to what needs to be processed. It takes time to apply each filter each time the citations list is accessed; allowing some filters to be "sticky" or default according to processor preference would save time when processing citation requests.

  15. Automatically set Open Access citations to complete

    I'd like to propose a new functionality enabling citations that are open access to be set to "complete" (semi-)automatically.

    Having to go through all open citations and checking each for possible open access is a cumbersome and time consuming effort we (the library) would like to simplify.

    An "[ ] Open Access" checkbox within the Add Item menu, the citation and for Cite It! would enable instructors to do so themselves with little additional work on their side.

  16. Adding tags from Cite it

    Currently there is no way to add tags at the same time as you create a citation from Cite it. You have to first add the citation to the list, then open the list, find the citation and finally add tags. This is a cumbersome and inefficient process that could be improved.

    Cite it has other features that allow you to add public notes, due dates and creative commons licenses to your citations. These features are not as widely used as tags, but they are available at the time of creating a citation. Having the ability to add tags at…

  18. Multi Course Export

    Leganto currently allows instructors the ability to export a single class list to Excel. We’re asking for an expansion of that ability to allow librarians and/or faculty to export lists from a set of multiple classes at once.

    Use Cases:
    Program Review, this would allow program chairs or deans to review materials in use across their student’s course of study. This would let them analyze their data to identify materials for update and understand when citations overlap to provide a top down view of their program.

    Instructor review, this would allow instructors to easily review the citations used in their…

  19. 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…

  20. Add parameter "no list expected" to make sets and global changes to courses via "Course bulk update" job

    A few monts ago, Alma added the option "no list expected" to the courses. This parameter can only be searched through Analytics, but we want to:
    -make it available in Alma to refine searches when making sets.
    -be an option to make global changes to courses in the "course bulk update" job

    Example: I want to make a set with all courses that belong to an academic department and the parameter "no list expected" is unchecked.
    Then, I want to make global changes to mark "no list expected" in all courses of this set.
