  1. Stop match and merge different editions from local catalog

    In the local catalog different editions have their own records, and it is important for our users to find the right edition. In Summon sometimes local catalog records merge with other local catalog records so that several editions are shown as one. This makes it difficult for our users to see what edition they are looking at. We would very much like Summon not to merge different catalog records from the local catalog with each other.

    You can request that your catalog records are excluded from merging. Just go to the Summon Admin Console > Content Ingestion > Catalog Merge Settings. Just drag the catalog you want to be excluded from merging from the Include to the Exclude column and click Save at the bottom. This is an all or nothing setting, so it will impact all catalog records.

  2. Add Summon API Usage Reports

    My library is using Summon API with other third-party system. I would like to see Summon API usage reports(such as basic searches, sessions, facets etc.) in Summon OBI platform

    Most devices have built in support for color inversion or the ability to designate color schemes to meet an end user’s need. We also test our user interface for compliance with text-to-speech readers as well.

    We strive for compliance with both VPAT and WCAG standards, and review our standing periodically. If you have feedback on our accessibility support, please open a ticket with our support team and we will address the issue as quickly as possible.

  4. Add the word "Temporary" to the Saved Folder.

    The message indicating this folder is temporary pops up for a few seconds (5 or so) and is only shown on the first tab open. Therefore if a user has more tabs open for research they may not know their items are temporary.

  6. Add the option to hide the Widget Builder in hamburger menu.

    We're concerned about having these widget builders on the public side.

    We'd prefer to offer our faculty code for search widgets with more functionality for embedding in their course materials.

  7. "Scholarly & Peer-Review" and "Peer-Review"

    The filter "Scholarly & Peer-Review" and just "Peer-Review" are both in the "REFINE YOUR SEARCH" facet. It would be confusing when users want to search for peer-reviewed articles. It should be "Scholarly items" and "Peer-Review."
