  1. "send list"

    The "Send list" button should be renamed "SAVE". It is far from obvious that this must be pressed in order to finalize the list (which I assume this button does?)

  2. Edit Pane to remain on Screen when editing & saving an item.

    When you edit an item in a reading list and click save the list advisor panel replaces the edit panel, it would be better for the edit panel to remain on screen after you've clicked on save as further edits may be needed to the same item?

  3. Lookup pricing and availability of books at online bookstores and display to patrons

    Ability to lookup pricing and availability of books using online bookstores' REST APIs and display to students and instructors, with links, in the Additional Services section of the full citation display. So not just links that might not work using "general electronic service", but more like "Check Availability and Pricing" in Alma. Not just for Amazon, it needs to be possible for an institution to select their preferred partner(s) and configure their affiliate ID or other parameters in the API requests.

  4. Adding metadata to articles via the search interface in ALMA

    When using the Link Resolver on an uploaded article it needs comprehensive amounts of metadata attached in order to locate the resource.

    If an article is uploaded without metadata the librarian needs to search Primo and manually add the needed metadata to the item.

    In order to optimize the workflow we would like to be able to use Locate Resource in Alma to find the metadata and automagically add it to the item. As we are using Primo VE this should be possible.

  5. Material Visibility Start and End Dates on Rollover Inherit New Course Start and End Dates

    Adding material visibility start and end dates for uploaded files requires clicking in and out of every citation on the list which has an uploaded file, and then clicking 4 or 5 times further to advance the calendar to the end of the semester for each citation's material visibility end date. This request is asking for the rollover process, both for instructor and course loader rollover, to include the option to assign new material visibility start and end dates to any citations on the list which have a material visibility date at the time of rollover, and the new course…

  7. Limit the approvals request list

    It would greatly improve workflow to allow the staff processing the Approvals Request List to be able to limit the items in the list by the year, semester and request type (e.g. to weed out Patron Request types). This would let staff show just the items they are interested in, and eliminate all the noise of the old approvals.

    Attached is an example of how we would like the Status filter to appear on the Approval Requests List.

  8. Configuration of a 'pop up' when creating a new list using a black tamplate.

    When you create a new list using a blank template and want to add some sections you are able to add the first section however when you want to add a second section a pop-up appears which tells you to add items to the first section and this pops up in front of the add section button, also there doesn't seem to be a way of closing the pop up unless you click to add an item.

    It would be good if there was an 'X' in the pop up so we can continue to add sections or an option…

  9. Be able to configure visibility of "Upcoming Due Dates"

    Allow for an option to make "Upcoming Due Dates" to be visible or hidden depending on the needs of the institution. This seems to be visible by default.

  10. API for Retrieval of List of Courses for a User

    There already exists an API for the retrieval of a list of users for a particular course:
    GET /almaws/v1/courses/{course_id}/users

    https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com/alma/apis/docs/courses/R0VUIC9hbG1hd3MvdjEvY291cnNlcy97Y291cnNlX2lkfS91c2Vycw==/

    This request is for development of an API for the retrieval of a list of courses for a particular user.

  11. Automatically create first section when creating a list

    All lists have at least one section, meaning creating the first section is a mandatory step. This step could be automated, and the first section created instantly as the list is created.
    The tooltip could be used to inform about how to edit the title (not strictly necessary), instead of how to create the section (mandatory).

    An alternative would be to offer a template out of the box with one section, replacing the existing blank template.

  12. Digitization request form - show fields for journal articles as well as books

    Improve the request digitization form so that it

    shows the appropriate fields if the bookmark is a journal article, and shows the existing information from the bookmark to the requestor.

    The information appears in the Alma citation, but I'd like the requester (whether academic or library staff) to see the information from the Leganto side.

  13. Change reading list jobs to work on sets of reading list IDs instead of reading list Codes

    Currently the reading list jobs in Alma/Leganto rely on users creating a set of reading lists. Unfortunately the creation of the set is based only on the reading list code, which:


    • makes it inconsistent with all other set creation activities which support IDs

    • adds unnecessary complication when loading the file of data to create the set, in that you then have to worry about handling special characters and unique codes.

    It would basically be the same as requiring users to upload a set of titles to create a title/physical item set.

    We've had to create several reading list sets in…

  14. Librarians would like to be able to feature lists in Find Lists by "Pinning" lists (or courses)

    We have had an interesting suggestion from Library staff working with Departments on topical reading lists - they would like to be able to 'pin' such lists to the Find lists page to make them 'featured' in a similar way to which the default "Recommended" - Popular/New/Recently Updated' ones appear. Ideally a pinned list/s would be more prominent to users throughout the interface, but the Find lists as a landing page would make sense to promote a themed list for library services - being able to scheduled the pin would be even better, but the core concept of pinning something…

  15. Add Warning (in Leganto) about associating multiple Reading Lists to Single Course code

    In our environment, we prefer only one Reading List to be associated with a single Course Code. However, sometimes Instructors link multiple Reading Lists to the same course. This is often in error.

    It would be good to have a warning in Leganto that warns instructors that they are linking a Reading List to a Course code that already has a Reading List attached to it.

    This should be able to be "overridden" to allow for instances where it is in fact desirable. And should be configurable for institutions for whom this is not desirable to be seen by instructors.

  16. Allow resource_locate_multiple_matches and resource_locate_multiple_matches_priority to take effect when locating single citation in Alma

    When resource locate is run on a single citation, Alma will only locate it if a single match is found; if there are no matches or multiple matches then the resource locate will fail and the citation's status will change to declined.

    The resource locate multiple match priority settings, which we use to prioritise electronic inventory, currently only apply when running resource locate in bulk using the Process and Enrich citations in Bulk job or when citations are added in Leganto by instructors. It does not apply when running resource locate on a single citation in Alma i.e. as happens…

  17. Allow the selection of Course and then Reading List when using LTI in a LMS site

    There is often complex mappings between institutional courses and LMS sites (these are not always a 1-1 mapping) and due to this the automatic LTI match is not viable.

    If courses are pre-loaded into Alma then the instructor may have already built the reading list they require so we do not want the LTI to create another course.

    If the LTI adapter allowed the instructor to select a course first and then the reading list then this would lower administration overhead significantly when there isn't a direct map between the course and LMS site.

  18. Make online links available while file is waiting for copyright approval

    If a citation (added either via the Primo search in Leganto, or via CiteIt) has an online link, then this is displayed for students (even if the item is still BeingPrepared instead of Complete).

    But if the instructor then also uploads a file to the item and copyright approval is needed then
    a) the file is unavailable to students until it's approved - this is good! and
    b) the online link is now also unavailable to students until the file is approved

    We'd like the online link to remain available regardless of whether or not a file is waiting for…

  19. Hide old courses

    Some course are run every semester which means there are potentially two courses to choose from when associating a list to a course.
    There is a risk that the instructor chooses the wrong/old course.
    It would be a nice feature to be able to hide old courses from instructors without deleting them from Alma, as they still might be useful.

  20. Limit availability of Add to Reading List icon in Primo to signed in users/specific user group

    We would like to be able to choose to only display the "Add to Reading List" icon in the "Send to" action options in Primo (See attached) if the user is currently signed in or if the signed in user is part of a specific UserGroup, for example, a STAFF UserGroup.
