  1. 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.

  2. "Automatic holdings management" process for database "eBooks on EBSCOhost" (CZZ)

    We buy single title e-books from ebsco regularly and have to activate the titles manually in the Client Center (database "eBooks on EBSCOhost"). It would make things much easier if there is a "automatic holdings management" process for this database.

  3. Workable automatic authentication of ExLibris books purchased in Summon

    Can we please have an automatic authentication system for ExLibris books we purchase that works? The current system does not work.

    We have had significant problems with a delay between purchasing a books via ExLibris and these books being searchable in our Summon- backed library site (books purchased on 22.9 are still not viewable on 2.11 - despite countless emails and tickets).

  4. Set up ‘search within’ functionality for ProQuest One Literature in Summon

    Would it be possible to set up 'search within' functionality in Summon for the One Literature database? I understand that this is not currently possible at present so have been recommended to suggest this via the Ideas Exchange.

  10. 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!

  12. Do not allow eBook and Computer File records to match and merge with each other

    There are CDI records, largely listed as eBooks but they seem to be merging with other catalog records with the 'Computer File' content type.

    The result is that e-books are displayed as computer files via the filter.

    This is confusing for users, and the merges may be causing more frustration than good.

  14. 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!

  15. Make the display order of Database Finder, custom panels, Topics, etc on the right side more customizable

    Our students love Database Finder, but in many cases the list of matching databases can take up a lot of screen space in the right side pane. Custom panels, Topics, LibGuide results, etc get pushed down on the screen and aren't as visible. I'd like to be able to choose the # of database results that are initially displayed, with an option to see the rest of the list. I'd also like the ability to choose the display order of Database Finder, individual custom panels, and Topics.

  16. SummonとExribrisの検索結果に複数のCitation metrics(IF, FWCI, h-Index etc)を標準装備する

    <現状>
    Summonのジャーナル論文検索結果にAlt metricsのドーナツが表示されている。
    →<将来>
    Alt-metricsとジャーナルIFが同時に表示される。可能であればFWCIまでを標準装備させる。
    <理由>
    ①Citationデータベースを新たに起動させる必要がなくなること、情報利便性と可視化が一歩前進する。
    ②大学と研究機関が出版社へ支払うコストは新規論文購入に絞ることで学術情報流通の完全な分業化をはかる。
    ③アグリゲータによる広範なフルテキストDBのバックアップと明確な研究IR支援によるコンサル事業を分ける。
    ④高度かつハイブリッドな情報リテラシー教育支援コミュニティをベースにおくアグリゲータサービスの樹立を目指す

  17. Accurate date of publication

    Some times we have unclear publication date for a book, and in such case, we set eg.[19--] at 260$c in Alma.
    Summon calculates it to 1900 and displays it at result page. We would like to display it as 260$c without no change.
    Also eg.[201-] and Kanji notation [明治頃] as well.

    Thank you very much for your cooperation.

  18. KBART exporting of 360 collections

    We have the ability to import KBART files into 360 but lack the ability to export collections data in the KBART format. As a result, when libraries need our collections as KBART files we must map the 360 export to a KBART template. Allowing for KBART exporting would simplify this.

  19. Can Authentication Banner URL open in a new window?

    Since we use this banner url to guide users to VPN Help Page, it would be more convenient to let Authentication Banner URL open in a new window.

  20. Log Changes to Permissions

    Changes to Client Center Accounts permissions, i.e. 360 Link Admin Console, are currently not logged in 'View Changes'. We do not have a way to check the history of any permissions changes on the account at this time. Having this feature will help us minimize unnecessary confusion and misunderstanding.
