  1. Search within Summon Admin Console

    The list of features available in the Summon Admin Console has grown large and it can be difficult to find the setting you are looking for. It would be helpful to have a search bar in the navigation bar on the left that searches all the pages and can help locate the desired setting.

  2. Configuring local thumbnail images to appear on the brief results display for some records in Summon

    We are looking into ways in which we can add our own thumbnail image for some select records in Summon. We have manage to do this in the detailed services page but there is currently no way to have the thumbnail image to appear in the brief results in Summon.

  3. Ability to self-sort library locations in mapping in Admin Console

    After making changes in Mapping>Library Locations in the Summon Admin console, it would be helpful to have the ability to sort the library locations table by both the Location Code or the Location Name. I make changes here based on a sorted list I receive from our cataloging department. Having the screen I initially see be sorted in alphabetical order (the same way I receive my list from cataloging) lets me eyeball how much work, if any, is needed. If I could see a sorted list, I could more easily see if we have a location code or a location…

    After updating library locations under Mapping in the admin module, you must submit for approval and indexing can take several weeks. You must keep checking back to see if the changes are "live" in the status field. Could the admin simply receive an email when they changes are live?

  5. Fix inconsistencies with HTML display in Custom Panel Sections between admin and production

    The editor for Pages > Custom Panel Sections is inconsistent with what's displayed in the Summon interface.

    Example #1--I attempted to insert a line break (<br>) in the title of the panel (to have a two-line header for the panel). After submitting, the admin tool properly displayed the line break. In Summon, however, the title displayed as a single line with the "<br>" displaying. It would be good if the panel title display in the admin tool matched how the title would display in Summon.

    Example 2: I was editing the panel in source mode and entered bold tags (<b>,…

    We would like it if we could up the limit of characters in the menu settings part of the admin tools in intota. Currently the limit seems to be 50 characters.

  7. Improvement request for Removed Titles report

    If titles are removed to make a zero title database, the information does not appear in the Removed Titles report.

    Example)
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/360_KB/Knowledge_Articles/360_KB%3A_American_Society_for_Microbiology_Journals_Database%3A_ TitlesWillBeRemoved--September2022

    Therefore, I must constantly check 360KB News to be aware of any title removal.
    I would like that information to appear in the Removed Titles report.

  9. Separate out translation for 'Full Text Online' to be independent from full text content link label

    Request to separate translations out so we are able to change the facet label 'Full Text Online' independently without affecting the labels for our content links. We want our content links to use the same phrase as our other institutional systems, 'View online'. However, the phrase does not make grammatical sense as a facet label. At present these two labels are controlled from one phrase, 'Full Text Online' in translations.

  10. Allow Best Bets to be date-limited

    It would be great to have date-limited best bets so it's easier to promote events, programs, etc. If implemented, it would be good to include a checkbox option to designate if a post is persistent or date-limited.

  12. add subject and abstracts columns in the upload template

    we have some library specific databases for information not available yet (no agreements with the publisher etc.). The titles in these databases have no subject or abstract information. It would be great when this information could be added. (add subject and abstracts columns in the upload template)

  13. Increase limit on collected search strings in OBI usage statistics

    OBI usage statistics keep track of the 200 - 500 search strings per month performed by users. These are available in the Summon Popular Searches report available in OBI.

    It would be useful to have access to a more complete list of search strings each month though, in order to perform analysis such as subjects of interest to users or search trends over time.

    This enhancement request proposes to increase the amount of search strings recorded. A preferred options would be to allow institutions to set how many search strings would be recorded per month (ie. ranging from none to…

  14. Add more journal platforms (American College of Physicians) to Resource Link Prioritization List in Summon

    This could go with other journal titles as well. Our institution subscribed to 2 titles through American College of Physicians with pretty extensive holdings. The titles can also be found via our subscription to ProQuest, but with more limited holdings. When users search for a title in Summon, they will only see the ProQuest holdings and then be told we do not carry the resource. I think adding more individual platforms to Resource Link Prioritization list will fix this. Thanks!

  15. Allow publishers ability to search their content in Summon

    Publishers whose content is uploaded into Summon should be able to view how these records look from a librarian's perspective. Can a publisher receive some sort of admin account for this? This would make answering our accounts' questions about our records much simpler.

  19. Customize Content Type facet to display content from specific publications

    We received the following request from a teaching librarian today:

    Is it possible for all of the articles in the publication Government Finance Review to show up under the Trade Publications limiter in Summon?

    It seems like it would be a good feature to make this customizable at the institution level.

  20. Apply the same tag to multiple Best Bets

    We enter our databases as Best Bets and add tags for their title and title variations. There are a few instances where we have multiple collections with similar title variations, such as Joanna Briggs Institute. It would be a great improvement if we could add the same tag to multiple Best Bets and have all of them display when that tag is searched; this would also be more consistent with how our database entries in our 'classic catalogue' can be searched.
