  1. "Quick Look" - Improve the quick look to be more flexible, including delivering with the four major elements in a "closed" position

    Quick Look - improve the quick-look to be more flexible, including delivering the key elements (subjects, table of contents, abstract, etc.) in a "closed" position, linearly in one column, allowing the user to choose which one to see on demand. The fixed display (headed by the 1-25) does not move or actually center on screen (laptops), making the right column data extremely hard to see at the bottom right of the screen. Make the elements "on demand" with clear "back" buttons to return to the quick look landing page. Also the page is not pdf or print friendly, and since…

  2. Mandatory sender e-mail field in Summon

    In summon you can email records / titles, from your search results to others via the small feature in the top right corner. Unfortunately, it is not a requirement that the sender of the email is obligatory to fill in a sender field (There is no sender field at all.)
    In principle, you can email posts / titles with associated messages in the note field anonymously!

    It also means that when we at the library receive such an e-mail, we only know who sent it if the patron added a text that helps us identify him/her.

    We therefore suggest that…

  3. RestrictionsOnAccess

    Make access restrictions visible (MARC field 506 / mapping "RestrictionsOnAccess").
    In mapping, MARC field 506 is assigned under RestrictionsOnAccess. Unfortunately this field is not visible in Summon. For the user it would be a big advantage if the access restrictions are shown at the hits.

  5. Add Section number to Course ID in Course Reserves page

    The Course Reserves page in Summon is a nice improvement for Summon Over Alma customers. In Summon, only the Alma course code is displaying as the Course Number. In the attached example, you can see that Bio 220 has 3 sections. It is not clear in Summon which section number corresponds to which course number. Please add the section number to course number in Summon.

  6. Permalink popups get in the way.

    Permalink popups on each records get in the way and hide the clear button when we bring up the permalink window.
    And when we tried to click the clear button, cursors and popups blink and do not look very good. I hope that it will be modified.

  8. Make custom panels visible for mobile phone users

    There appears to be no way for custom panels to display on mobile phones, which forces us to provide alternative instructions for doing certain things in Summon for people using phones. There should be a way for these panels to display.

  9. Ability to exclude a facet value on the results page

    At present you can only exclude a facet value by going into the "More" option. For example the Book Review content type is probably not that useful. So it would be ideal if the was a way to exclude them when the results are displayed. The default action when clicking on the Book Review content type would be to just include this type.
    This is something available in Primo and would be a great addition to Summon.

  10. Consistent link back to search results

    The user leaves the search result and goes to detail page, advanced search or saved items. Then when the user wants to return to search results this is done in three different ways. We would like the link back to search results look the same in all three situations. The one we prefer is the one in the detail page.

  12. Usability of Advanced Search

    Certain elements of the advanced search screen are very difficult to use on mobile devices, particularly the 'Content type' and 'Discipline' multiple check-box options, where scrolling through a long list is problematic.
    Is there a way to improve this, perhaps by using a larger pop-out box that can be scanned at a glance?

  13. Top menu bar - Feedback, Help, Language

    Some suggestions for the top menu bar.
    - Allow enable/ disable for Feedback & Help in top menu. Currently, feedback and help are able to pointing to specific links. But not able to disable/ enable the links.
    - Move the language dropdown to the top menu, instead of under the manual button then click and select from the dropdown. It's not easy for patron to find out this option and change the language.
