  1. Make it easier to add hyperlinks to custom panels

    At present, URLs can only be added to custom panels with HTML. It would be good to have the option of using the rich text editor (or, failing that, adding a URL below the panel's main text, as is possible with Best Bets)

  2. Option to toggle WoS / Scopus citation counts in search results

    It would be good if we could choose to make either WoS or Scopus citation counts visible in Summon, instead of having to have either both or neither switched on.

    Because we no longer subscribe to WoS but do subscribe to Scopus, the only way we could get WoS citation counts removed from the Summon search results was to untrack Web of Science in Intota. We don't like to untrack resources that we've previously subscribed to, because doing so means we can't see any of the historical data attached to Web of Knowledge collection databases. This is just how Intota…

  5. Responsive Design layout : Opting out of Topic Explorer for Single Column displays (cell phones)

    When using Summon on a cell phone with Topic Explorer, Wikipedia (when enabled) is on top - appearing to be the "number one" result. While having this in a side column is fine, we'd rather not have it so promonent on smaller screens.

  6. Primo Style Search Profile

    We would love to see a feature similar to the Primmo Search Profile (https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/ProductDocumentation/PrimoVE/010ConfiguringSearchProfiles) included in Summon. As a Summon over Alma customer, we would love to more easily be able to link out to WorldCat, highlight our Course Reserves, and more.

  7. Add a French Dictionary/Encyclopedia (3rd search results pane)

    As a francophone (French-speaking) library, we would like to be able to add an authoritative dictionary/encylopedia whose topics can be displayed in the 3rd search results pane. Much like Wikipedia and other encyclopedias.....

    Suggestions - Universalis.fr, Larousse.fr, etc.

  8. Show the details of contract with publishers concerning search target

    Contents which are searchable in Summon differ per publisher or database.
    It will be helpful for librarian if they could confirm the details of contracts about search target or the breakdown of search target in ClientCenter.

  9. Signature search

    Our users search directly for the signature of a book. It would be a good supplement if this search option were supplemented.

  10. Integrate NII's "cites/cited by" Information to Citation Trail

    NII(National Institute for Informatics) provides "cites/cited by" Information.
    https://support.nii.ac.jp/ja/cia/manual_result
    It is very desireble to integrate this "cites/cited by" information to "Citation Trail", for there is not much Japanese article information in current "Citation Trail".

  12. Best bets and Database Recommender icon differentiation

    We use both the Best Bets and Database Recommender features to promote databases in the context of a Summon search. We use the Best Bets feature to promote key databases for a subject and we use the Database Recommender feature to promote databases not indexed in Summon. Due to the tags used, a search will often retrieve both Best Bets and Database Recommenders. We would really like to either be able to customise the icons or have a different icon for each feature?

  13. Top menu bar - Feedback, Help, Language

    Some suggestions for the top menu bar.
    - Allow enable/ disable for Feedback & Help in top menu. Currently, feedback and help are able to pointing to specific links. But not able to disable/ enable the links.
    - Move the language dropdown to the top menu, instead of under the manual button then click and select from the dropdown. It's not easy for patron to find out this option and change the language.

  14. Let 360 Link make use of the EBSCO API

    Have 360 Link make use of the EBSCO API, which would allow 360 Link to do a 'pre-check' for article availability and suppress the full text link if the EBSCO API returns an unavailable status. This EBSCO API option is a feature currently available in Alma but not yet available in 360 Link. It would be great if Summon could take advantage of this API too.

  15. Lengthy Topic Explorer

    The current Topic Explorer is so lengthy, possible to shorten it?
    The whole page look very wordy.

    It would be good if we can add the logo of the resource also.

  16. Correcting Status of "online-first" Citations

    Aggregators, such as EBSCOhost, post articles on their websites only after the publisher adds the content in a journal issue. However, they do not take this information into account when providing their coverage dates.

    Because of this issue, citations in Summon for such "online-first" articles (such as the ones at https://www.tandfonline.com/action/showAxaArticles?journalCode=tsri20) may link to an error message if the institution subscribes to the journal via an aggregator and not the publisher.

    Since "online-first" records have a publication (SSID) and a publication date, if you subscribe to the journal and the article publication date falls within your dates of coverage,…

  17. Create a new database named Oxford Scholarly Editions Online - Plato

    We would like that it is added a new database in Summon, named "Oxford Scholarly Editions Online - Plato " in which the texts included in the file and published by Oxford University Press are present.

  18. 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…

  19. Add more journal platforms (American College of Physicians) to Resource Link Prioritization List in Summon

    This could go with other journal titles as well. Our institution subscribed to 2 titles through American College of Physicians with pretty extensive holdings. The titles can also be found via our subscription to ProQuest, but with more limited holdings. When users search for a title in Summon, they will only see the ProQuest holdings and then be told we do not carry the resource. I think adding more individual platforms to Resource Link Prioritization list will fix this. Thanks!

  20. "Citation Online" + Open Access logo in Summon

    In the Summon results page, the mention "Full Text Online" is replaced by "Citation Online" for results beyond library collection.

    I suggest an exception where this mention "Full Text Online" is not replaced for results beyond library collection, when these results are Open Access and when the Open Access logo is displayed.
