  1. The ability to edit eBook title and publication year metadata in Summon

    Is it possible to give librarians the ability to edit certain eBook metadata (title, publication year) ourselves in order to improve match and merge functionality. We have so many duplicate records because the metadata from the Summon index is poor, titles and/or publication year are wrong, leading it to not merge with our catalog record. Is it possible to give the control to the Librarians to edit that metadata to allow for less duplicate records without having to put in Support tickets all the time with long lists of duplicate records to fix?

  2. Ability to self-sort library locations in mapping in Admin Console

    After making changes in Mapping>Library Locations in the Summon Admin console, it would be helpful to have the ability to sort the library locations table by both the Location Code or the Location Name. I make changes here based on a sorted list I receive from our cataloging department. Having the screen I initially see be sorted in alphabetical order (the same way I receive my list from cataloging) lets me eyeball how much work, if any, is needed. If I could see a sorted list, I could more easily see if we have a location code or a location…

  3. Integration of Summon search results when bibliographic records contain both physical and electronic inventories.

    If a bibliographic record has the both physical and electronic inventories, Alma pushlishes each inventory as Physical Inventory and Electronic Enventory with different publishing ID to Summon. Accordingly, Summon can't do M&M, shows the multple results. This is not a good design.

  4. Filtering titles with status "under review" in client center e-catalog search

    On "e-Catalog" search box in ClientCenter, admin cannot filter titles with "Status Is".

    It will be helpful if we could sort titles on "e-Catalog" search box with the status "Under Review".

    Because some admin would like to register a title as "Under review" title at first and then change it to "Subscribed" at a later time.

  5. Notification request for zero-title database

    Sometimes, databases in KB seem to be changed to zero-title databases without notification.
    For example, "Optica Conferene Papers" was changed to zero-title database and there was no notification through "Knowledge Articles" on Knowledge Center or "Knowledge Notification" on Client Center.

    Since it may be possible to use other databases to register titles recorded before one database changed to be zero-title one, I hope that notification through "Knowledge Articles" and "Knowledge Notification" to be published whenever Ex Libris makes databases a zero-title ones.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Next Expected Update date for collections

    Similar to the "Last Full Update" and "Last Partial Update" dates in the 360 KB database entries, it could cut down on the volume of cases about new individual titles if the collections that get updated on a regular schedule also had "Next Expected Update" date to display.

  9. Search by URL in the client center

    It would be great to be able to search a journal's URL in the client center. Sometimes I need to find out which collection uses a certain URL for a journal and doing a title search + checking each title individually is cumbersome.

  10. Filtering Journals based on Indexing like ABDC, ABS, FT 50, Web of Scince, SCOPUS, Both Scopus & WOS

    Filtering Journals based on Indexing like ABDC, ABS, Web of Scince, SCOPUS, Both Scopus & WOS

    As this filter option is necessary for the research scholars & faculty members literature review purposes. They focus on particular category journals for literature search.

    We would appreciate it if you could take forward this suggestion to your development team.

    I will be happy to support & provide the necessary data for this implementation process.

  11. 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>,…

  12. Enable search by full DOI URL

    In the E-Journal Portal, it would be helpful to enable lookup by the full DOI URL.
    For example, entering "https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jpag.2021.01.016" would still search for "10.1016/j.jpag.2021.01.016"

  13. Scrolling improvement on facet pane

    When the screen is scrolled to the bottom of the search results list, the refinement function is not visible. It is desirable to be able to scroll facet portion and search result display portion independently.

  14. Add the ability to hide a title from E-journal portal public view in the Client Center

    When "we subscribe to only some of the titles in this database" is selected then titles have to be manually updated. We would like to be able to not check that box so that the collection is updated and maintained automatically, but we want to be able to hide individual titles from public view.

  17. Improve author search in Summon

    Users are frustrated trying to limit a search to a specific author. I.e. using Author: "kelly, Daniel" - the results returned are for Kelly, Daniel J ; Kelly, Daniel P etc.

    Why is this search function not more precise, and returning only Kelly, Daniel ?

  18. 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.

  20. Improvement request for Removed Titles report

    If titles are removed to make a zero title database, the information does not appear in the Removed Titles report.

    Example)
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/360_KB/Knowledge_Articles/360_KB%3A_American_Society_for_Microbiology_Journals_Database%3A_ TitlesWillBeRemoved--September2022

    Therefore, I must constantly check 360KB News to be aware of any title removal.
    I would like that information to appear in the Removed Titles report.
