  1. Frequently auto-refresh Leganto reading lists so statuses are updated without having to continually, manually refresh the page

    I think it would be helpful to auto-refresh Leganto reading lists so any real-time changes are evident without having to manually refresh the page. This suggestion arose when library staff were trying to help faculty troubleshoot problems over the phone, but I think it would be helpful in general.

  2. Show students why download isn't available

    This is relevant when students can see the citation before the download is made available to them.

    In this case there are many reasons why the full-text mightn't be available. It might be waiting for copyright clearance. Or the lecturer might have added visibility dates. At the moment all the student can see is that there's no download, so they may complain to the instructor or the library when they actually just need to be patient.

    So while the Download link is suppressed, it would be useful to display a brief explanation. Eg "Restricted until [date]" if a date is…

  3. Autofill CCC special order forms

    When a reading cannot have copyright clearance immediately granted in Leganto, staff are notified to place a special order. Sometimes Leganto provides a direct link to a blank CCC form, but sometimes it doesn’t. In either case, the staff must enter all form information manually, even though that data has already been entered in Leganto.

    Leganto should connect directly to the CCC form in all cases where a special order is needed, and autofill the form with all relevant data that has already been entered in Leganto. E.g., ISBN/ISSN, year, volume, pages, number of students, article or chapter title, etc.

  4. Request for review date

    We haev been examing workflows for checking lists and would like to suggest that once a list has been reviewed that the "request for review" date can be cleared / reset. This would make it easier to oversee the lists that need to be reviewed and would enhance the use of the status functions.

  5. Button to toggle list editor/manager status for all collaborators at once

    In almost all cases, we want collaborators to be able to manage their lists rather than just edit them. This means having to individually change the setting for each collaborator after adding them.

    It would be much quicker if there was a single button in the 'Manage collaborators' window to switch all other collaborators from 'Can edit list' to 'Can manage list', and vice versa. This button should only be visible to library staff and existing list managers.

  6. Improve the Notification Type table in Alma

    The Notification type table can be displayed in different languages in Alma. However, after translating it, we realized it was not possible to upload a file with all the translations. We had to add each label manually.

    Another issue we encountered is that we were not able to distribute the table from our "Alma Network" instance to all the institutions in the consortium, which we do for examples with the label tables.

    Both these issue make it impossible for us to implement the translations for each institution as it would require too much work.

  7. Add a job to (dis)associate reading lists with course(s)

    By default un-associated reading lists are attached to the Exlibris default course, and currently any reading lists imported by Exlibris - ie from Equella, require that the courses already exist, in order to associate properly.

    However, what happens if you want to change the association of a reading list to a course or courses? There is currently no API mechanism to do this, and the reading list import by Exlibris can't be run in 'resynch' mode where the courses may have been created after the reading list import.

    What we're suggesting is that a job can be run using a…

  9. Improvment for the alert filter in Alma

    In Fulfillment > Citation

    This filter is automatically set to "Alert:All" so we would expected the citations shown under to be all citations with alert, but this in not the case (only shows all citations).
    The way we see it, the filter should be blank by default and "All" should be a possible choice, allowing to show all the citations with an alert.

  10. Create a way to match old lists to newer version of lists.

    Recently we have had a curriculum review which has meant not all courses are rolled over. Sometimes we are creating new courses. Then as lecturers finally start working on their lists. They tell the library that this is the newer course of an old course. It would be go to have a way of marking old lists and their newer version. Even if they have been created without rollover.

  11. Actualización automática de registros en Listas de Lectura Leganto

    Es importante que exista un proceso de actualización entre el registro Padre y la cita agregada en Leganto. Que toda vez que se realice alguna actualización y o cambio en los registros (MARC, holdings o ítems) de Alma que estén referenciados en listas de Lectura de Leganto, estos registros cambios puedan actualizarse automáticamente en las listas de lectura sin necesidad de que se realice manualmente. Actualmente realizamos cambios a nivel de clasificación, cambios en los metadatos y toda vez que los realizamos las listas de lectura se alteran y no son accesibles desde Leganto, por lo que se debe volver…

  12. Citation – Bibliographic record overlay enhancement request

    Request:
    As a Library Staff member, I would like functionality that allows me to enhance the bibliographic information in Leganto citations by identifying, retrieving, and overlaying institutional bibliographic records. I would want this functionality to be added to the Leganto interface to allow me to process a list entirely within this environment.

    We are aware of the “process and enrich citations job”. However, this job can be disruptive to citations where we are not supplying access via institutional holdings. We also want the ability to resolve bibliographic issues with citation on a case-by-case basis.

    Situation:
    When a citation has been…

  13. Choose when to empty your bag

    When users add to citations to their bag to reorganise before pasting back into a reading list. They can only do this task once. It would better if they could do this multiple times, so they can add a set of citations to different reading lists or different sections in one list.

  14. When copying a section from one list to another provide a 'search for' option to find the list you want to move to.

    At present it gives a randomly ordered list of all lists on 'My Lists' so hard to find the one you want if as a librarian you manage a lot of lists.

  15. Improve Citations search (Alma workflows) e.g. include Journal title (and chapter title?)

    Hi,

    Staff find that the Citations search functionality in Alma/Course Reserves is not as effective as it could be for finding updates as the indexes which can be chosen do not cover sufficient citation metadata fields to allow for the most common searches to be supported.

    Currently the search options are:
    Citation ID
    Course Code
    Course Name
    Creator
    ISBN
    ISSN
    MMS ID
    Reading List Name
    Title

    However it is frequently the case when looking to update/correct citations that a Journal title would need to be searched, and unfortunately Title does not cover this aspect of the citation metadata when the…

  16. View course name when selecting list in Cite It

    Currently you can only view the list name and course code. Instructors won't always be able to identify the correct list here, as they might not know the course code and their list might have a generic name ("Reading List") which does not offer any indication of the course.

  17. For Question and Answers in Leganto - allow a "cancel but add" option

    Some instructors are trying to add multiple items very quickly and would like to be able to search and add items and then go back through and tag them.
    In the current Question and Answer workflow, there is either a 'you must provide one response' type message, or there is a cancel option, but the cancel prevents items from being added. It would be useful in some cases to allow as cancel, but add option.

  18. B2B Branding

    With a B2C organisation, the focal point is on promoting one sort of product that certain customers may want. A criminal workplace, for instance, will simplest be selling offerings in the prison market. All in their clients are looking for felony assistance.

  19. More self explanatory labels in the Leganto Publishing Configuration

    The labels in the Leganto Publishing Configuration (Configuration > Fulfillment > Leganto > Publishing) are rather confusing.
    "Anyone Restricted" especially has been a cause of misunderstanding with both Ex Libris and institutions in our consortium. A simple change such as "Anyone Restricted, Course students only" for example would make it easier to immediately understand who has access to uploaded files.

    But all labels in general would benefit from a more self explanatory formulation, for example:
    List anyone,
    List all students,
    List course students,

    , course materials anyone
    , course materials all students
    , course materials course students

  20. 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.
