  1. Go directly from Quick Look window to journal page

    Some journal records have link to the 360 Core results screen on the Quick Look window.
    It would be better if it were possible to go directly from the Quick Look window to journal page without going through 360 Core screen. Please see the atteched.

  2. 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>,…

  3. Customize Summon homepage like PrimoVE

    We would like to have the possibility to customize the Summon homepage like PrimoVe, in order to be able to add a bit of introduction text and links.

  4. Block titles across multiple databases

    We want to filter out several publications and publishers from wherever they might appear in our holdings, rather than having to go in and edit the title lists in individual databases in the Offline Date and Status Editor. Once you deselect titles in ODSE, the title list no longer updates automatically and you have to manually update the database lists. We keep seeing the same lousy titles showing up over and over again (especially in various Gale products) and it is a pain to edit them out of every single Gale collection and/or deselect entire databases.

  5. Google Analytics 4

    Dear Summon
    It seems Summon has not supported Google Analytics 4(GA4) yet.
    Is it possible to update it to support GA4 and a customer can input a code which begins with NOT "UA-" in Summon Admin Console?

  6. "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…

  7. allow more content types to link out to resource from catalogue

    It would be great if catalogue records, which contains an 856, could link directly to the resource from Summon. At present this can only be done if the record is an eBook, eJournal or a Journal.
    Linking back to the catalogue record isn't an ideal scenario for the end user when all they wnat is to get to the online resource.

  8. Remove double separator for more identifiers (hardcoded)

    Remove double separator when the bib record has more same identifiers:

    I.E.: for two ISBN, Summon display the separator ;,
    ISBN 0521451639;, ISBN 0521466903 (pbk.)

    The display of the identifiers in the Summon Over Alma services page is hard coded by design, so it is not possible to modify the display of the delimiter in the Brief record.

  10. No information on the necessity to use parentheses in complex queries on Summon Search Query Help

    Currently, there is no information about the necessity to use parentheses in case of more complex search queries in the Summon Search Query help (at least in our library and I was told that the help page is the same around the world). Users who often use Google Scholar as a rule of thumb do not use parentheses because Google works well even without them but in case of Summon, the use of parentheses in more complex queries is essential.
    Even on ExLibris Knowledge Center web (page Summon: Phrase, Field, Boolean, Wildcard and Proximity Searching - https://tinyurl.com/2fy5sx2h) it is…

  11. Allow merging of duplicate metadata records for newspaper articles prior to January 1, 2000.

    I reported a case of 12 metadata records for the same NYT newspaper article. Search: "carmichael oregon high desert"

    This was the response from support:

    Records with the resource type "newspaper articles" from before January 1, 2000 - CANNOT MERGE.
    Unfortunately it seems that CDI is currently not designed to provide the functionality described.
    The next step is to pursue this as an enhancement.

  12. resizeable Logo in Saved Search Email

    It would be great if the email sent when a user clicks on the Saved Search option used a size appropriate logo.
    At present it looks like it uses the largest logo imaginable and makes the whole thing look like it was made in GCSE computing class. Its not very professional looking.
    At least a Saved Searches email logo option in the Summon admin would be a start.

  13. Add the ability to reorder locations in Real Time Availability Results

    Real time availability results display only one available location in the search results and the location name is in alphabetical order. We would like to order those locations so that our circulating collection locations appear first. Right now Archives (which is non-circulating) location displays first and users don't notice the arrow to click to see other locations/copies we have available. They often give up and assume we don't have the item in our main circulating collection. When users limit a search to a specific circulating location, but the results that appear say they are in Archives it is confusing.

  14. Enable DOI search for not CrossRef DOI

    360 Link can search content by DOI published by CrossrRef.
    But DOI published by other institute (e.g. JaLC) is not searchable.
    So please enable DOI Search for not CrossRef DOI.

  15. SAML authentication

    We would like to login with SAML through eduGAIN

    There is a "new" interfederated login with SAML through eduGAIN

    Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) is a member of the Swedish Academic Identity Federation – Swamid.
    There are similar solutions for universities around the world.
    Swamid is a member of the Interfederation eduGAIN (https://edugain.org/).

    Our IdP is published through the Swamid Metadata and eduGAIN interfederated Metadata.
    The metadata for the IdP (supplied through Swamid/eduGAIN) is stripped, so it only contains the necessary information for the federated authentication.
    We prefer that all federated authentication and Metadata exchange are handled through…

  16. Option to rename CSL citation styles in admin console

    At this moment, the name of citation styles provided by RefWorks can be changed in Translataions tab in Summon Admin Console.
    As we can now load citation sytles from CSL styles repository, it would be great if library can customize the name of the CSL styles as well.style as well.

  17. Statistics for Best Bets

    I would love to get data on how effective our Best Bets are in Summon -- to get a sense of how often users are engaging with a Best Bet to find information or a resource, based on certain anticipated searching behavior. Such data would help me to decide how much time to invest in crafting future Best Bets -- particularly the tags. But I could also include the data in annual reporting.

  18. [360 Core & 360 Link] ISSN / ISBN search enhancement request

    For EJP and 360 Link, ISSN & ISBN search is availavle only when the ISSN & ISBN are included on Title Metadata.
    But there are many title's metadata which have only eISSN / eISBN even if title data of each DB has the pISSN / pISBN.
    *Sometimes Title Metadata doesn't have any ISSN/ISBN.

    On Client Center, we can find titles by searching pISBN even if title metadata doesn't have pISBN.
    I think same specification is better on EJP and 360 Link.

  19. 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
