  1. 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?

  2. '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.

  3. 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).

  4. Resource locate to default to "OR"

    It would be useful if "Locate Citation by Fields" could be configured so that only one enabled field needs to have an exact match, i.e. the resource locate defaults to "OR" rather than "AND" where more than one citation metadata field is populated.

    This would allow citations to be matched where a title is misspelled, but an ISBN is correct, or vice versa.

  5. popular reading lists

    We currently have old lists showing on our popular reading list section. We would like to be able to remove these from the list. Either by changing the configuration of how the list is created or being able to pick which lists are in the popular list.

  6. Within a citation's Links & Availability, allow the ordering of links

    Currently when a citation has an uploaded file and online links, the uploaded file will by default show on top of the list. If we enable embedded PDFs and other formats this end up pushing the remaining links to the very bottom of the page. We would like to be able to customize the order of links within a citation

  7. Real time integration for course updates between Blackboard and Alma/Leganto

    A real time integration between the VLE system Blackboard and Alma/Leganto would be beneficial to allow course information to be updated instantaneously within Alma/Leganto, without having to wait for the next course load to run.

    Although APIs are available for creating and updating courses, these require local set up and resource. It would be beneficial if standard integrations could be developed for course updates directly between the most commonly used systems e.g. Blackboard, meaning that when a change is made to a course in the VLE this is then automatically reflected in Alma and Leganto.

    This would also be useful…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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).

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Make tags clickable

    Tags look clickable in Leganto, even if they are not. It creates the expectation that something should happen. Some users might expect they will be taken to the full text of the citation, depending on the tag label.

    What we would like to happen when a user clicks on a tag is that they get an overview of all the citations with the same tag. It's a quicker and more intuitive way than the current way of filtering by tag.

  18. Field to display URL where item type is Website

    Where Website is chosen as the item type then it would be useful to have a field that displays the URL, in both the short and long form of the citation in Leganto. Ideally this should be displayed in <angled brackets> in keeping with common reference citation guidelines, but it would also serve as a useful back up if the link were to stop working. This would not need to be a hyperlink and may need to be different to the one that we are using as it would need to exclude any proxy url prefixes that may be in…

  19. Allow date filtering on the Edit Citations page

    It would allow more flexibility in the Citation-level workflow if there was an easier way of working with dates in the page. Often there are far more citations slowing the page and overloading the users to make this as effective as it could be. It would be useful to be able to filter the report by a date (before/after, or between) and then use the facets to really drill down on criteria to address.

    In a list in Alma, there is a "Citation Last Modification Date" which is almost doing something similar, but as it is just a specific date…

  20. Add fields "Date Sent For Library Review Month" / "Date Sent For Library Review Month Key" to the RL dimension in SA Course Reserves

    One of our libraries uses additional conditions in Analytics based on "Date Sent For Library Review" in SA Course Reserves. This to be able to change background color depending on when the reading list was sent to the library. It helps them more easily prioritize the follow-up work on the lists.

    There is no Month column/field in Reading List dimension table that can be used with Date Sent For Library Review. The only Month and Month Key fields available in Course Reserves subject area are for citations and courses (in Reading List Citation Create Date, Current Course Start Date and…
