  1. Revise display logic so that collection names do not display as corporate authors

    Based on the MARC 21 standards, collection names are in the 710 field. For example:

    710 2 Alumni Ph.D./Th.D. Collection (Princeton Theological Seminary)

    As in https://catalog.ptsem.edu/record=b3319515~S1

    This is a typical way that most libraries handle their collection names. However, the current Summon mapping and display rules result in the collection name appearing as the author in the search results when there is not a main author for the work: https://go.exlibris.link/DZxpskWX

    Do black lives matter?: how Christian scriptures speak to Black empowerment

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Add Provider: Art Council

    Hello,

    We would like to add the open access title "The Cultural and Economic Trends of Cinema in Ireland and Wales" to the 360KB but unfortunately it doesn't seem to be listed anywhere.

    URL: https://www.artscouncil.ie/generic_content.aspx?id=10486

    I am wondering if it is possible to add the provider Art Council to the KB and this title be added.

    Please let me know if you need any other information.

  7. Add ResearchWorks Archive to 360KB

    Hello,

    We are interested in having ResearchWorks Archive added to the knowledge base.

    ResearchWorks Archive is the University of Washington's digital repository (also known as "institutional repository") for disseminating scholarly work. More information about ResearchWorks can be found on the Scholarly Publishing Services page. (https://lib.washington.edu/scholpub/scholarly-publishing-services/researchworks)

    We are specifically hoping to have the following OA title added to the knowledge base:

    Title: Cross-Cultural Communication in Early Modern Russia: Foreign News in Context
    URL: https://doi.org/10.6069/XCSQ-BF71

  8. Full title of search result on mouseover (titles are truncated on smaller screens)

    Problem: Summon users who have smaller display screens (such as laptops) are not seeing the full title for search results – instead search results are being truncated with the remainder of the title not visible for the user.
    For academic journal articles that often have long titles, this means that users are not able to properly identify a search result’s relevance.
    Currently, the only way these users can find out the full title is by clicking through each result and going directly to the source. This is undesirable for users as is time consuming and clunky.

    Proposed solution: We propose…

  9. "Refine Your Search" improvement with OR search

    It would be useful to be able to narrow down "Refine Your Search" items by multiplying high priority items by OR search. For example, it would be good to be able to narrow down the search to only those contents that fall under either "Library Catalog" OR "Full Text Online". Currently, when all items in "Refine Your Search" are checked, they are narrowed down by AND search.

  10. Don't force title case in Summon UI for Search Scope Names

    Allow the Summon UI to display Search Scope Names as they have been entered by the library instead of forcing them to display in title case.

    For example, if the Scope Name is Books and Journals, display "Books and Journals" in the UI, and if it's Circulating Collection (items you can check out), display "Circulating Collection (items you can check out)" in the UI.

    Right now, these Scope Names are forced to be displayed as "Books And Journals" and "Circulating Collection (Items You Can Check Out)" for the end user.

  11. Summon integration with SirsiDynix Enterprise

    EBSCO EDS integrates with SIrsiDynix's Enterprise catalog tool, allowing discovery content to be surfaced and accessible via the catalog, alongside a user's account info, physical items on loan etc - all in one place. I'd like to see Summon similarly integrate with SD Enterprise.

  12. Request to add several Taylor and Francis' ENGnetBASE collections to Alma

    Hello,

    In preparation of Duke's move from 360 KB to Alma this upcoming summer, we are evaluating some of the databases tracked in 360 to make sure that they line up with electronic collections in Alma.

    I've noticed that in Alma there are collections listed for Taylor and Francis' ENGnetBASE for the years 2019 through 2024 but nothing for earlier years.

    There is a large collection in Alma called ENGnetBASE (Collection ID: 61111082146981000) that I thought had all of the titles listed but after further investigation I have learned that it has different editions of several of the ebooks we…

  18. Changes to the default content type mapping to accommodate music

    The current default MARC field mapping for web resources and computer files includes an option for MARC field 008(026). For most content types, this field position indicates that the resource has online content or is accessed electronically.
    HOWEVER
    Music scores and sound recordings have a different set of values for the 008 field. Their data elements for the 008(26) position indicate that the resource has accompanying matter, such as historical information, biographical content, or a discography.

    By having the 008(26) as a default MARC mapping for all types, many music resources will get incorrectly identified as web resources or computer…

  19. Include a mapping field for indexed names and titles

    Added entries in a MARC 7xx field should have their own Summon Field Name and be displayed in the preview and detail page. This is a basic need for music and sound recordings which often contain several titles by multiple people. Users will then be able to click on the indexed name or title in the display page and search for other resources containing it.
