  3. Availability in Location Items section

    For a journal, each value in the calculated availability is calculated independently, based on the lowest and highest value of the items, even if they do not come from the same items.
    I.E: if we have the following items:
    2022,1 to 2022,4 and 2023,1

    in Summon the availability is displayed with:
    from:1 2022 until:4 2023

    instead of
    from:1 2022 until:1 2023

    We would like change the summary calculation in availability.

  5. Start Collecting E Media reports (IR_M1) in Intota

    The COUNTER IRM1 report is necessary for ACRL IPEDS survey's e-media usage reporting. As many academic libraries must comply with this reporting, It would be greatly appreciated if you could begin collecting IRM1 reports.

  6. removing the red “-1” Content Type exclusion indicator

    suggest removing the red “-1” Content Type exclusion indicator. We feel it comes across to users like a warning or error – an alert that is negative in nature. The navy “Selected” box at the top of the facet pane is a much friendlier and more useful indicator, and the exclusions are well marked in the Content type list itself, so the red “-1” indicator feels redundant and potentially misleading. If removing it isn't possible or palatable, please allow it to be disabled in the Summon admin module.

  7. 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"…

    After updating library locations under Mapping in the admin module, you must submit for approval and indexing can take several weeks. You must keep checking back to see if the changes are "live" in the status field. Could the admin simply receive an email when they changes are live?

  9. 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?

  10. Index eBook content directly from publishers?

    Index eBook content directly from publishers. There seems to be more and more eBook titles from many of our collections that are not available in the Summon Index. Is there a way to get this metadata from other sources like directly from the publishers so that the ebooks will show in Summon without having to dump the records in from the catalog to get it in there?

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    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"

  16. Display multiple editions of a title in order, most recent first.

    Multiple editions of a title often display in the Summon search results in a seemingly random order. Different editions of the same title should display in a logical order with the most recent edition first. We have reported countless instances of this behaviour over the years and are told that it is unfixable due to the quality of metadata.

    Summon should link different editions of a title together so it can display them in a logical order. As Summon will not always be able to do this accurately, give customers a way to edit and improve the data so we…

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
