  1. Add events (citation modifications, etc) by library staff to Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area in Analytics

    Currently the Leganto Instructor Usage Events subject area only identifies events created by list collaborators. At our institution, library staff are also responsible for making modifications to lists and citations (for example, adding tags), however these actions are not displayed as 'events' on analyses created in this subject area.

    As previously discussed with Ex Libris (see SF 00523008), it would be useful for our workflows if both instructor and library staff events could display in this subject area (perhaps under separate descriptors).

  2. Include more search features in Leganto such as Subject Search, Sort by Newest, and more filter options that is available in Primo.

    Leganto Search box is limited in comparison to Primo which means we need to do more complex searches in Primo and then import/export selected items, which is quite tedious with large and non-specific results. Please allow individual libraries to provide the option to add more Primo features such as filters, sort, and advanced Subject Search.

  3. 'Add new title to section' button - float in long sections

    Some lists have long sections. It would be very helpful not to have to scroll up through long sections to get to the 'Add new title to section' button. Would it be possible to make this button 'float' so that it is visible wherever you are in a list section. This would improve the list navigation experience for instructors and creators.

  4. Allow Instructors to make students collaborators on specific reading lists

    From feedback we received from Instructors, they would like the ability to add students as collaborators on specific reading lists. This would enable course students to collaborate on the compilation of materials and sharing of comments on them as part of learning and research activities.
    To date it seems the ability to add students as collaborators is limited to Alma-side changes - see the idea which was added to production in May 2018 in https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/395697-leganto/suggestions/33076474-adding-a-collaborator-needs-to-assign-instructor-r

    We can see there may be data privacy concerns from some 'free searching' of users without a role, but wondered whether either the LTI aspect…

  5. Add an 'Undo' button to Leganto UI

    Instructors would appreciate this, especially when they first start using the system.

  6. Allow tags to be added in Cite It

    Would it be possible to assign tags to citations directly from the Cite It window, rather than having to locate them in Leganto and tag afterwards?

  7. Customisable text box in Leganto UI to provide library contact details

    We would like the option for a library enquiry email address and phone number to be visible on all screens in the Leganto UI. A customisable text box could be added to the bottom left corner of the screen with this information.

  8. 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.

  9. Export to Excel - Remove "Citation" from each column

    We want to suggest a slight modification of the export to Excel.

    As you can see on the attached screenshot, the title for each column is preceded by Referanse/Citation.
    Ex:
    Citation Volume | Citation Issue | Citation pages | Citation start page and so on.

    The document would be easier to read, and thus more user friendly without the extra "citation" text.

  10. Allow instructors to see List and Item Discussions more clearly

    Although there are concerns around anonymity of list and item level discussions, instructors are interested in being able to easily get a course-level overview of the discussions on their lists, and items on their lists. Currently the Notifications can help to get instructors to individual comments, but these have no course context, having list filtering and no course details. Being able to see whole discussions from notifications and seeing the courses with which they are associated would help greatly here.

    For example, if a lecturer is seeking feedback on assigned readings on a list, it would be useful to be…

  11. Extra scope in Leganto with all the citations already processed by the library

    We would like another scope to be added in Leganto: The completed Leganto citations already approved by the library. Effectively, the content in Alma>Fulfillment>Course Reserves>Citations.

    In most cases a citation will rarely be perfect when you import it to a reading list. You usually have to customize the citation in some way. To be able to reuse the already processed and completed citation will save a lot of work for both instructors and/or librarians. This is especially true for book chapters, as not many are catalogued in Alma as such.

    Completed citations could be easily searchable by instructors in Leganto.

  12. make tags of mandatory or optional reading as compulsory so that librarians know exactly which material to buy without having to clarify

    if these tags were compulsory Liaison librarian wouldn't then have to clarify with instructors whether or not to buy material.

  13. 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…

  14. Library Physical Digitization Request Option to Attach File to Citation For Which It Was Requested

    When using the Library Physical Digitization Request option to create a digitization process for a file for a Reading List, the file is delivered to the Requestor at the end of the workflow. This request is asking for another option: an option for Alma to automatically upload the file to the citation for which it was requested. This would save a lot of time spent used for file retrieval and file management and would prevent the file being uploaded on the wrong citation.

  15. Searching or refining a search with publication year

    The citation search in Leganto has been significantly improved with the material type facets.
    But it could be made even more efficient and userfriendly with the possibility to search or filter by publication year.
    Some publications such as reports have the same title and the time of publication is a good way to differentiate between them and/or easier to remember than a DOI.

  16. Remove an individual user from all courses/lists where they are an instructor/owner

    This is only currently possible as a bulk process using the reading list 'Remove all owners' job, or by using the course uploader. This is inefficient in cases where an individual member of staff leaves or is no longer teaching on a specified module and therefore needs to be manually removed as a list owner / course instructor.

  17. Instructor / list owner to receive notification when list and/or all list citations marked complete

    It would be useful for the instructor to know when all citations have been dealt with by library staff so that they can then choose to publish their list (rather than making the list available to students despite some items not being obtainable).

  18. Improve access to Public Notes - allow editing from the Citation edit option

    Public Notes (instructor notes on resources visible to list users) are treated oddly in Leganto compared to other reading list systems - that is they are not given equal status as other citation metadata fields in the Citation Edit form.

    Public Notes are regularly used by Instructors to annotate or qualify resources; to comment on and direct students as to the quality, purpose, priority, and considerations of using certain resources, or parts of resources.

    In that sense the Public Note should be accessible for editing when editing all other item metadata (such as chapter title etc.

    Currently the Public note…

  19. Autocomplete Non-CiteIt Citations based on Material Type or other configured rules

    It would be very useful to be able to have configuration in Alma that would allow citations with a specific list of defined Material Types to be set to citation status: Complete and Copyright Status: Not Required or Approved automatically when they first are created on the Reading List. This would save staff working on Reading lists where there are numerous citations which need no copyright approval or should be auto Approved and need no user intervention, to be automatically marked complete if they matched a configurable list of material types exiting in Alma already.

    At the moment it takes…

  20. Overview of readings lists in a study program

    Leganto gives the possibility to
    - link to a specific course (and display the list(s) associated to this course)
    - get an overview of all the reading lists belonging to a specific academic departments, through their course association

    The missing link in between is the association of a smaller number of courses, belonging to the same academic department or not:
    the study program.

    Librarians and instructors could associate courses to a study program as easily as they can associate a list to a course.
    Students could search for a program in the find list interface.
    An overview of all the…
