  1. Print PDA

    PDA is on the increase so it is essential that Summon can integrate for both PRINT and Electronic PDA.

    Print PDA are currently records from Library Management System however Summon only links to Catalogue which is too many steps. Solution would be to link to PDA Request form directly from the Summon Record.

  3. Allow the brief results from your catalogue to be configurable

    It would be useful if the fields available in the brief results could be configurable. It would be useful to be able to either remove fields altogether, or to at least have labels displaying, such as "Series" , "Pub Date" etc

  4. Initiate Best Bets from the Resource.

    It would be simpler to add a check-box for Best Bet and text box to insert the description to the resource activation, than to enter that same information separately. Also, the Best Bet would then use the same version of the URL that the link resolver uses, and it would be updated when that URL changes in the Knowledge base.

  5. ability to disable message for the public display of A&I "not available"

    Allow library to choose whether to display or not display the "not available
    " message

    Can this portion of the A&I Detail page be configurable - while useful for the librarians, not so great a recommendation for the public, telling them all the places where their article isn't available.

    cf case # 00710757

  6. Journal information appearing condensed in Summon (spacing is needed)

    The journal information that shows on our Bib records appears condensed in Summon. It would be helpful to have the information separated with a blank line and the word "location" in bold. If bolding can not be done, a new line between the locations would be very helpful.

  9. I wanted to ask whether the possibility of being able to modify proximity search searching has been considered?

    We had proximity search settings set in EDS so that words entered in the keyword box had to be within 3 or 4 words of each other, (if I'm remembering correctly). That seemed to be a good happy medium for our users so that phrase searching wasn't needed. It's an adjustment for those used to EDS of now needing to put phrases in quotes, capitalize boolean operators, and this really broad threshold for proximity searching when using Summon.

  10. Summon over Alma: Change Alma Service Page UI language by Summon UI language

    For Summon over Alma clients, Summon is the only OPAC for patrons. At present, only 1 direct link rule can be set. The link rule to Alma Service Page has language parameter, but it cannot be set by Summon UI language differently from Primo. We'd like to request that Summon has the feature to set multiple languages parameters by Summon UI language. Currently, from Summon English page results, Alma service page displays Japanese UI. This is inconvenient for English patrons.

  12. Allow full replacement marc uploads without having to approve the load in the content ingestion interface.

    Allowing for full marc record loads without additional approval in the admin interface would decrease the number of steps needed for libraries who wish to always do full marc record replacements. It would also make record upload automation possible through custom scripting or services such as Innovative Interface's Scheduler.

  14. Match & Merge Duplicates in Video Type

    Match & Merge duplicates in the video Type. They don't do it because "there hasn't been much duplication in video." Well, we have some and they won't merge them. Ideally we should have no duplicates in any type.

  16. Make OA Content excludable

    Right now you can include OA content, which we like. But can we make a way to exclude it for the users who get confused when they expect to see an article and (for most OA articles) are dropped at the home page of the website?

  17. Expanding the Credo content connected to records used by Summon Topic Explorer.

    Credo has content that should be showing up in the Topic Explorer box, but it's not because that content isn't connected to the records Summon searches for Topic Explorer content.

  18. Yordam automatic content update at Summon

    This is a request to have the possibility to automatically download/upload local content from Yordam to Summon rather than the librarians upload the files manually to Summon FTP. This can be done by a script and for some OPAC, this is already happening e.g, SirsiDynix automatically uploads at Summon. Can this automation be also done for Yordam?
