  4. Add language translation export/import tool to Summon, 360 Link

    Often translations are incomplete in non-english languages. A facility to export/import translated terms would allow us to easily send text files (XLS) to translators and import into other Summon instances. Allow us to see translated text used by other Summon users. eg. sharing these files across the user community would save a lot of work. Flagging new items added between releases would also help.

  6. Summon topics should yield Credo topics--not just Credo articles--when relevant

    For example, a Summon search on "cyberbullying" in our instance retrieves the Credo article "Taking on the School Bullies." The Credo topic page "Cyberbullying" is more relevant, but Ex Libris reports, "Showing the Credo topic page is out of scope for the topics feature."

    I would like Summon topics to retrieve Credo topics results, especially when they're more relevant than Credo article results.

  8. Related items functionality should be implemented separately for journal articles and book chapters so you can opt in separately.

    We need the ability to turn off Chapters until it works properly. The book Reviews tab isn't an issue.

  9. Option to remove Language button from the burger menu if necessary

    The option for Language (English) appears in the menu even if you are only making English available. If there is only one language available, users should not see an option to select another.

  10. About customizing the contents of the simple record displayed at the top of the Summon over Alma service page.

    Currently, the contents of the brief record displayed at the top of the Summon over Alma Service Page are not customizable. We would like to be able to define this display freely, as in Primo VE.

    For example, in addition to the fields currently displayed, we would like to add Record type, Statement of responsibility (author from 245 $c), Publisher name and place, Series name and number, etc.

    Example (parts in brackets are not displayed in current service page)

    [BOOK]
    Winnie-the-Pooh[ / A.A. Milne ; with decorations by Ernest H. Shepard ]
    Milne, A. A. 1882-1956 Alan Alexander; Shepard, Ernest…

  12. Improving the timing of the SpringShare chat prompt appearing in Summon

    We're delighted that we could integrate SpringShare Chat functionality into our Summon interface. However, we feel it could be improved by delaying the appearance of the chat prompt message for this functionality on screen.

    As you can see from the file, a message appears asking users whether they'd like to chat to one of the Library Team - that's great! - but the speed of which it appears is almost instantaneous and often before users have had chance to look at their results.

    Is there any way that you could make a fix for Summon to delay this slightly so…

  13. Add "Available physical items only" facet

    Our library wish to make use of the RSS function to list out the latest available items for loan in LibGuide. However it comes with problem which the items in order (i.e. unavailable) are on the top of list. It would be better if the "Available physical items only" facet is available for filtering.

  14. 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.

  16. Add the ability to reorder locations in Real Time Availability Results

    Real time availability results display only one available location in the search results and the location name is in alphabetical order. We would like to order those locations so that our circulating collection locations appear first. Right now Archives (which is non-circulating) location displays first and users don't notice the arrow to click to see other locations/copies we have available. They often give up and assume we don't have the item in our main circulating collection. When users limit a search to a specific circulating location, but the results that appear say they are in Archives it is confusing.

  17. resizeable Logo in Saved Search Email

    It would be great if the email sent when a user clicks on the Saved Search option used a size appropriate logo.
    At present it looks like it uses the largest logo imaginable and makes the whole thing look like it was made in GCSE computing class. Its not very professional looking.
    At least a Saved Searches email logo option in the Summon admin would be a start.

  18. Add the ability to hide a title from E-journal portal public view in the Client Center

    When "we subscribe to only some of the titles in this database" is selected then titles have to be manually updated. We would like to be able to not check that box so that the collection is updated and maintained automatically, but we want to be able to hide individual titles from public view.

  19. 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?

  20. 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.
