  1. 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…

  2. Sort citations in Alma by date of alert generated

    Citations in Alma can currently be sorted by date created, date modified, citation title and reading list name.

    It would be useful if we could sort them by the date an alert has been generated (e.g. date when a user has marked a broken link). We could then prioritise the alerts more effectively as they are actioned.

  3. Add "Chapter Number", "Chapter Author" and "Chapter Title" columns to citation search page on Alma

    The citation metadata fields 'Chapter Number', 'Chapter Author', 'Chapter Title' cannot be viewed as columns on the citation search page in Alma (although they are visible if you edit the citation details). These fields contain key information which support our regular workflows, and it would be useful to have them visible at this level.

  4. Getting Started Reading List

    When a new user accesses the reading list system maybe they should be greeted with an example reading list which includes citations from Leganto YouTube playlist showing the features and how to use the system. Possibly create a student version and another for the reading list designer to show. Librarians could edit the Getting Started List to include their own citations and sections as well

  5. 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…

  6. Display module name / code / year alongside list title in Copy Section > Copy Into List dropdown menu

    This dropdown menu currently only displays lists by title. This is not useful in cases where the list has a generic title, e.g. 'Reading List', or if the same list has been rolled-over from previous years (there is no way to distinguish which list is for which year).

    It would be very useful if the module name, code and year could be displayed alongside the list title here.

  7. Short cuts

    Both keyboard shortcuts (hot keys) to reduce mouse use, and ability to add often used pages/functions in a "favorites" linkbar for easy access. Reducing the amount of mouse clicks needed.

  8. 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.

  9. Leganto +ReadingList widget

    In adding the +ReadingList widget to the bookmark manager of a browser, you need a two-step process. First click the widget from one's Leganto settings menu and click again on the widget button from the pop-up window. This is more of a user experience issue, many if unfamiliar will choose to drag the widget after clicking on the menu settings and will drag the URL instead of clicking another time to wait for the pop-out window to drag the right widget with the javascript (see below).

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Add a new parent field to group academic/processing departments

    Please find attached high level design about the ability to create academic units which may group several academic and/or processing departments.
    Please review the document and let us know if you have any remark. We would like to get your feedback if processing department is relevant here.

    Many thanks,
    Miriam, Leganto BA

  14. Display Instructor's name along with list title and code in search.

    This is a very simply display improvement. Students looking for lists from searchlists often want to find their list by instructor name. Sometimes they will browse by department, or try to find their course amongst other sections and there is no indication of who the list instructor is from the brief list record. Even if they search by that name, they may misspell it and still have to and have to click through to open the course to be assured they have the right list. Adding it with the code at the bottom of the display would be a useful…

  15. Notes added in Alma to default to 'Library' type (rather than 'Instructor')

    Notes added in Alma are likely to be for internal use only for Library staff. It would therefore be useful for the note type to default to 'Library' rather than 'Instructor'.

  16. 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.

    Example:

  17. API for course enrollment

    In September (2019) there was added a job in Alma that makes it possible to enabe a link between a student and a course so that the user is associated with the course. More information: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Leganto/ProductDocumentation/LegantoOnlineHelp(English)/LegantoAdministrationGuide/ConfiguringLegantoIntegrationProfiles/ConfiguringImportingCourseEnrollment_Jobs

    We see that this may be an useful feature, but we think that it would be more useful to be able to create this link using API instead of a filebased internal job in Alma.

    This would make it easier to make the updates in real-time and use a message queue-based architecture.

  18. Show accurate total of books in stock

    The Alma side of Leganto uses the number of copies of a book in total but unlike Primo, does not ignore books marked as 'lost' or 'missing'. Would it be possible for Leganto to show the current total of books in stock (either available or on loan) without any missing/lost ones?

  20. Free text space above File Upload Copyright options in Leganto

    Currently, in the front end of Leganto, there is no free text space above the File Copyright Upload options. Please see attached screenshot.

    It would be good user experience if there is the option to add some free text there otherwise it's just a series of options without an explanation of what they are.
