  1. client center

    The Client Center staff-side user interface needs to be updated. It looks and functions almost the the same as it did when we first used Serials Solutions in 2004. It's slow and fails accessibility testing.

  2. Integrate Summon with Sierra for Live Catalog Updates and Deletes

    Instead of sending the daily updates/deletes in Sierra catalog, having a process that preform this task instantly will improve the search results immediately and will free library staff to do other pending tasks

  3. Would love to be able to search the Summon Idea Exchange by date of submission of the idea! What's new!?

    Would love to be able to search the Summon Idea Exchange by date of submission? Possible? What's the latest hot enhancements from say, the last three months rather than the last three years?

  4. Toggle on/off for search results autoload

    Many users prefer the scroll to autoload search results. As convenient as that is, it is reportedly posing a difficulty for those who must use screen readers at our institution. They need to be able to load one page at a time. It isn't important if the citations per page is 10, 20, or some other number just as long as they can page forward and backward in the results. I would like to see a way for users to toggle on/off autoload for search results. If that is not possible, then adding a way in the admin console to…

  5. Log Changes to Permissions

    Changes to Client Center Accounts permissions, i.e. 360 Link Admin Console, are currently not logged in 'View Changes'. We do not have a way to check the history of any permissions changes on the account at this time. Having this feature will help us minimize unnecessary confusion and misunderstanding.

  6. Can Authentication Banner URL open in a new window?

    Since we use this banner url to guide users to VPN Help Page, it would be more convenient to let Authentication Banner URL open in a new window.

  7. 360 Resource Manager - Contacts

    With many providers moving to URL-based customer support portals, it would be great if the 360 Resource Manager Contacts area had a URL field to record the support portal URLs.

  8. KBART exporting of 360 collections

    We have the ability to import KBART files into 360 but lack the ability to export collections data in the KBART format. As a result, when libraries need our collections as KBART files we must map the 360 export to a KBART template. Allowing for KBART exporting would simplify this.

  9. Merge audio book holdings into the 'book' record in the same way as print and e-books

    Audio books should be treated in the same way as e and print books and added to the master 'book' record as an additional holding. Currently we have to add audio books as a separate content type so they will always appear as a separate record to the print or e copy and won't be retreived by clicking on the 'book' content type.

  10. Separate out translation for 'Full Text Online' to be independent from full text content link label

    Request to separate translations out so we are able to change the facet label 'Full Text Online' independently without affecting the labels for our content links. We want our content links to use the same phrase as our other institutional systems, 'View online'. However, the phrase does not make grammatical sense as a facet label. At present these two labels are controlled from one phrase, 'Full Text Online' in translations.

  11. Accurate date of publication

    Some times we have unclear publication date for a book, and in such case, we set eg.[19--] at 260$c in Alma.
    Summon calculates it to 1900 and displays it at result page. We would like to display it as 260$c without no change.
    Also eg.[201-] and Kanji notation [明治頃] as well.

    Thank you very much for your cooperation.

  12. allow kbart uploading for library specific holdings

    For collections not in Intota, if we can get kbart files from the vendor, it would be great to be able to use the kbart file provided as opposed to transfer the information a new format.

  13. SummonとExribrisの検索結果に複数のCitation metrics(IF, FWCI, h-Index etc)を標準装備する

    <現状>
    Summonのジャーナル論文検索結果にAlt metricsのドーナツが表示されている。
    →<将来>
    Alt-metricsとジャーナルIFが同時に表示される。可能であればFWCIまでを標準装備させる。
    <理由>
    ①Citationデータベースを新たに起動させる必要がなくなること、情報利便性と可視化が一歩前進する。
    ②大学と研究機関が出版社へ支払うコストは新規論文購入に絞ることで学術情報流通の完全な分業化をはかる。
    ③アグリゲータによる広範なフルテキストDBのバックアップと明確な研究IR支援によるコンサル事業を分ける。
    ④高度かつハイブリッドな情報リテラシー教育支援コミュニティをベースにおくアグリゲータサービスの樹立を目指す

  14. Allow Best Bets to be date-limited

    It would be great to have date-limited best bets so it's easier to promote events, programs, etc. If implemented, it would be good to include a checkbox option to designate if a post is persistent or date-limited.

  15. Remove identical links in Summon results for eBooks

    eBook titles that have a MARC record in Library Catalogue are duplicated in the Summon results as a single result entry with 2 links.

    Advised by technical support that this is the current design, case response below. The two links (particularly in the new interface with dropdown is an extra step for users).

    "ILS gets one record by 360 MARC update service and ILS sends the record to Summon.
    Accordingly, the link URLs are same, however, Summon thinks there are two link candidates after M&M, one is from ILS, the other is from Ebook Central. Currently, this is a design."

  16. Make Unpaywall a trackable database in Summon

    Include Unpaywall as a standalone, discoverable and trackable database within the client centre. This would then remove the dependency on other databases that include OA content having been tracked in the Client Centre from Unpaywall linking and, therefore, discoverability in Summon.

  17. MUSIC Content Type in Summon

    It would be very helpful if Summon could separate music sound content from audio books/spoken word recordings and even from streaming audio. It would finally allow our music users to be able to limit their searches only to music relevant products.

  18. 360 Usage Statistics

    For 360 Usage Statistics report, there is no separate data for every month, it is just an overall number of the year.

    We would like to have the data of every month like SFX analytics.

  20. Make the display order of Database Finder, custom panels, Topics, etc on the right side more customizable

    Our students love Database Finder, but in many cases the list of matching databases can take up a lot of screen space in the right side pane. Custom panels, Topics, LibGuide results, etc get pushed down on the screen and aren't as visible. I'd like to be able to choose the # of database results that are initially displayed, with an option to see the rest of the list. I'd also like the ability to choose the display order of Database Finder, individual custom panels, and Topics.
