  1. Database order in 360 Link and EJP: Make it possible to upload changes in a file

    In the 360 Link Admin Console it’s possible to change the order in which databases er shown in the Sidebar Helper frame, the 360 Link results page, and the E-Journal Portal results page. As it is you can change the order by moving one database at a time on the list (either by dragging the database to a new position on the list or by changing the number the database has on the list. We would like it to be possible to download the list of databases in a file, make the changes in a spreadsheet and upload it. At…

  2. Provide an overall percentage of MARC record availability at the database level.

    Currently one can examine a few specific journals or books within a collection to determine if CONSER or other MARC records are available for a collection. This can be hit or miss. It would be great to see an overall percentage of MARC record availability at the database level as we do with the percentage of Summon coverage.

  3. Idea for changing the results of the 360 API's calling to sort of order to the most recent first .

    As the reaction to the release on 3rd Nov 2021 which has been provided on EJP, I'm suggesting of changing the results of the 360 API's calling to sort of order to the most recent

    Because it become more usable if the platform which using this 360 API could display the databases with the most recent coverage first.

  4. Allow filtering of UnPaywall and Open Access Button results on Link Resolver

    360 Link should allow filtering of the Unpaywall and Open Access button results so that libraries can choose which versions to display. This would allow us to display only peer-reviewed results. Both services return version information in their API. Our library would like to use this open access button feature, but we need to be able to filter the results.

  5. 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.

  6. 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."

  7. UMWELTdigital" (Erich Schmidt Publishers Ltd & Co)

    We have acquired the full text database "UMWELTdigital" (Erich Schmidt Publishers Ltd & Co) for our library. The database is not yet indexed in Summon.

    As a university library we would like our users to be able to retrieve contents from the UMWELTdigital" (Erich Schmidt Publishers Ltd & Co) while searching in the Summon Index. This would enrich my search results with relevant resources in the field of environment studies and also give me the possibility to get this database recommended. So, we kindly ask you to index this database in Summon.

  8. EJP usage report : eBook and eJournal accessing counting through EJP

  9. Allow for the ordering of EJP results

    We'd like to be able to decide how results should show up in the Journals search: a specific example (see attached image) would be if you are searching on "nature", then the journals with "nature" in the real title (as opposed to the Alternate Title) would rise to the top. Right now they come back in alphabetical order and we feel this is counterintuitive - more helpful would be how results in most other places come back, with relevancy rankings incorporated.

    Please note: We know that you can remove alternate titles in the search results, but we'd like to retain…

  10. Intota Consortium Sharing: “Terms of use” should be shown in EJP on “From Consortium titles”

    When you share a database and a license belonging to the database with a “child instance” then “Terms of use” are only shown in the eJournal Potal belong to the “parent instance”. As terms of use is as relevant to the users at the “child institution” as to the users at the “parent institution” this information should be inherited.

  11. Intota: Coverage Date to “Present” in LSH-databases shouldn't be converted to 01/01/1900

    When you enter “Present” as “Coverage Date to”in Intota this is converted to the date 01/01/1900 in eJournal Portal. If you leave the “Coverage Date to” field blank, then eJournal Portal shows the end date of the holding as “to Present”. Our wish is that entering “Present” will show up as “to Present” in EJP as well.

  12. Intota - Internal Resource Notes on titles in LSH databases should be saved

    You are able to enter a text in the Internal Resource Note field on a title in a Library-Specific Holdings database.
    It looks as if the text is saved but when you search for the title again you can see that it has not been saved.

  13. Intota Consortium Sharing: Status should be inherited on title level as it is on database level

    When you cancel a subscription to a single journal in a database in the “parent instance” in Intota and wish to be able to see all data entered (payments etc.) after the cancellation you must choose any other Status than “Not Tracked” for the journal in question. On the other hand, you must choose “Not Tracked” to remove the title from the eJournal Portals belonging to any “child instance” that have inherited the journal through Consortium Sharing. Setting Discovery to “Off” doesn’t solve the problem. This is both illogical and annoying.

  15. A more user-friendly way to manage Library Specific Holdings for our print serial

    We would like to see a more user-friendly way to manage Library Specific Holdings for our print serials. Often, our holdings are not continuous; we have gaps in coverage. The only way to add additional dates of coverage is to "Add title" for each date range. 360 then merges the multiple date ranges into one serial record. Having the ability to manage multiple date ranges within one record would be helpful. This system limitation also affects editing. Right now, if you need to edit date ranges for one of these serials, you are only given the option to edit one…

  16. EJP: Limit autocomplete suggestions to subscribed resources

    In the eJournal Portal you can activate autocomplete to get suggestions for journal titles based on what the end-user begins to type in the search-box.

    We find this useful. However, as it is ALL Knowledgebase titles can display via the Autocomplete feature. Both title we subscribe to and titles that are not tracked. This means that the end-user will often get suggestions that gives 0 results. We would therefore like to be able to select that the autocomplete feature only suggests journals that we subscribe to.

  17. Upload KBART Files Directly into 360 for Community Use

    In order to enhance the number of databases with full title lists, I would like to be able to upload KBART files provided to us by publishers and vendors. There is a significant time lag between purchasing/licensing ebook packages from Elsevier and Springer, for example, and those books being available in 360. This has a huge impact on efficiency and patron satisfaction. We need tools to aid in maintaining efficient workflows in our current systems.

  18. fuzzy keyword search in the E-Journal Portal (AZ List)

    Our patrons do not always know the exact name or spelling of a journal or how to use an asterisk.

    We think the E-Journal Portal search box should support fuzzy keyword searching.

  19. only show one open access button when both return a match

    We turned on both the unpaywall and openaccess buttons in 360. Often there are matches in both, so both buttons display. We would like them to only show one in cases where both return a match. thanks for considering!

  20. Batchediting Option for Administrative and Resource Renewals

    We buy JSTOR EBA books, and other ebooks in bulk. Every time we buy new ebooks, we need to add Administrative and Resource Renewals notes mannualy, one by one. These notes are often repetitive, especially for the same batch (like "Payee: JSTOR", "2021 EBA purchase" etc.).
    Currently there's only one bach editing option: Cost data.
    It would be nice if we could update admin and resource renewal notes by batch editing, so that we don't have to edit them one by one for 100+ times. Thanks!
