  1. When bibliographical records contain two edition statements show both in the results list

    I would like to suggest that when bibliographical records contain two edition statements (e.g. Eighth edition and international edition) in separate 250 fields, that both appear in the record in the Summon results list

  2. Make OA Content excludable

    Right now you can include OA content, which we like. But can we make a way to exclude it for the users who get confused when they expect to see an article and (for most OA articles) are dropped at the home page of the website?

  4. Make use of BL or LC Name Authority Headings

    Users would like to be able to differentiate between authors of the same name when searching Summon, using the Name Authority headings already available in the BL or LC catalogues/name authority indexes:

    https://lccn.loc.gov/n2007182995
    HEADING: Kelly, Daniel, 1959-

    They can do this in our library catalogue, and expect the same in Summon

  6. Make the display order of Database Finder, custom panels, Topics, etc on the right side more customizable

    Our students love Database Finder, but in many cases the list of matching databases can take up a lot of screen space in the right side pane. Custom panels, Topics, LibGuide results, etc get pushed down on the screen and aren't as visible. I'd like to be able to choose the # of database results that are initially displayed, with an option to see the rest of the list. I'd also like the ability to choose the display order of Database Finder, individual custom panels, and Topics.

  7. Allow the brief results from your catalogue to be configurable

    It would be useful if the fields available in the brief results could be configurable. It would be useful to be able to either remove fields altogether, or to at least have labels displaying, such as "Series" , "Pub Date" etc

  9. Summon over Alma: Change Alma Service Page UI language by Summon UI language

    For Summon over Alma clients, Summon is the only OPAC for patrons. At present, only 1 direct link rule can be set. The link rule to Alma Service Page has language parameter, but it cannot be set by Summon UI language differently from Primo. We'd like to request that Summon has the feature to set multiple languages parameters by Summon UI language. Currently, from Summon English page results, Alma service page displays Japanese UI. This is inconvenient for English patrons.

  11. Toggle on/off for search results autoload

    Many users prefer the scroll to autoload search results. As convenient as that is, it is reportedly posing a difficulty for those who must use screen readers at our institution. They need to be able to load one page at a time. It isn't important if the citations per page is 10, 20, or some other number just as long as they can page forward and backward in the results. I would like to see a way for users to toggle on/off autoload for search results. If that is not possible, then adding a way in the admin console to…

  12. Page feed interface for search results page

    Currently, Summon displays hidden search results by scrolling down the search results screen. It would be good if users and administrators could select "page feed type" as an interface for displaying hidden search results at their discretion.

  13. Make it possible to construct a search box for all online material plus physical material from one location only

    At present it is possible to construct a search box which excludes all physical material from one or more library locations. Unfortunately it also excludes physical material found at both those library locations and others, when these share a bibliographical record in the LMS. Make a truly location-specific search box possible.
