  3. Add Publisher Press Books to 360 KB

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. "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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Avoid adding inappropriate data automatically

    I would like the administrator to be able to select whether or not to apply the function of automatic completion of bibliographic information to the titles registered as Library Specific Holdings. Sometimes, this function gives titles inappropriate data.

  13. Restore the ability to search note fields with Basic Search

    We request that the ability to search note fields using basic search be restored as before.
    The note fields contain many important keywords to help users encounter the materials they need.

  14. Limit purchase request by material type

    At present, purchase requests cannot be limited by material type, e.g. users can request that we purchase ebooks but not ejournals. I think this could be achieved with Display Logic.
    Can this functionality please be added?

  15. CDI Display Document Attributes

    The "CDI Display Document Attributes" functionality in Primo allows preprints to be labelled. There is an ongoing problem in Summon where aggregators and publishers use the same electronic collections but provide a different level of access. Especially with preprints - which look like broken links because aggregators dont provide them but they are included in results because publishers do.

    This functionality could identify preprints so users would have a better idea of why they can't access them.

    Can this functionality please be made available to Summon users?

  16. Summon UI Language to Be Transferred to Catalog UI

    Could you please make it available to configure language condition to the link from Summon to Catalog?
    This request is from a Japanese university.
    For example, it is preferable that a record on Summon (UI: English) leads to Catalog page of English version. Currently it is led to the default Japanese Catalog page even though Summon UI language is English.

  17. 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.

  18. date limiter buttons - keep the end date open rather than automatically entering a value of today's date

    issue with the "quick pick" date limiter options (1 year, 3 years, etc.) - a "hard" end date is set (today's date) which is invisible to the user unless they click the pencil icon, meaning any results with future publication dates will be excluded from the search results. It's really common for journal articles to show a publication date in the future, and the way the date shortcut buttons are configured, any such articles will not be include in the results. We believe this is counter to what users expect when they use date limiters, and in particular the "shortcut"…
