  1. Toggle on/off for search results autoload

    Many users prefer the scroll to autoload search results. As convenient as that is, it is reportedly posing a difficulty for those who must use screen readers at our institution. They need to be able to load one page at a time. It isn't important if the citations per page is 10, 20, or some other number just as long as they can page forward and backward in the results. I would like to see a way for users to toggle on/off autoload for search results. If that is not possible, then adding a way in the admin console to…

    Would love to be able to search the Summon Idea Exchange by date of submission? Possible? What's the latest hot enhancements from say, the last three months rather than the last three years?

  3. "Time Period" facet / filter > needs Reverse Alpha Sort

    The "Time Period" facet / filer has sorts by numeric occurrence and by alphabetical sort; however, since many of the terms in the subfield are dates, the ability to find current dates requires you to scroll through way too many entries, since it begins with 1 AD. Request to provide a Reverse Alpha Sort (most recent - call it what you may) - so that users can on demand begin with the current era and work backwards.

  7. custom panel collapse by default

    Allow for the custom panel to be collapsed by default. Instruction Librarians feel that displaying custom panel's create too much distraction on screen.

  8. Make use of BL or LC Name Authority Headings

    Users would like to be able to differentiate between authors of the same name when searching Summon, using the Name Authority headings already available in the BL or LC catalogues/name authority indexes:

    https://lccn.loc.gov/n2007182995
    HEADING: Kelly, Daniel, 1959-

    They can do this in our library catalogue, and expect the same in Summon

  9. 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.

  12. Add case studies as content type

    It would be great if "case studies" to be added as a content type, the same way it's an option on CINAHL and some other Ebsco products. Our nursing and allied health students often have assignments that specifically require them to use case studies, and it's difficult to narrow those down using Summon.

  13. Make it possible to construct a search box for all online material plus physical material from one location only

    At present it is possible to construct a search box which excludes all physical material from one or more library locations. Unfortunately it also excludes physical material found at both those library locations and others, when these share a bibliographical record in the LMS. Make a truly location-specific search box possible.

  15. Database recommendations based on content type facet

    Currently the database recommender is powered by tags (and an algorithm based on the result set?). We would like for the content type facet to also power database recommendations. For example, if the music facet is selected, Naxos is recommended. If the standards facet is selected, Standards Australia is recommended. The new database facet assists with this to a degree, but it is not foolproof.

  16. Increase limit on collected search strings in OBI usage statistics

    OBI usage statistics keep track of the 200 - 500 search strings per month performed by users. These are available in the Summon Popular Searches report available in OBI.

    It would be useful to have access to a more complete list of search strings each month though, in order to perform analysis such as subjects of interest to users or search trends over time.

    This enhancement request proposes to increase the amount of search strings recorded. A preferred options would be to allow institutions to set how many search strings would be recorded per month (ie. ranging from none to…

  17. Improvement request for Removed Titles report

    If titles are removed to make a zero title database, the information does not appear in the Removed Titles report.

    Example)
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/360_KB/Knowledge_Articles/360_KB%3A_American_Society_for_Microbiology_Journals_Database%3A_ TitlesWillBeRemoved--September2022

    Therefore, I must constantly check 360KB News to be aware of any title removal.
    I would like that information to appear in the Removed Titles report.
