  1. Automatically update Embargoes whose date has passed

    Esploro records are Opened automatically after the embargo period had passed – But:
    • The records still have "Embargo" in the "Access rights" section of the asset
    • "Embargo" still appears on the article’s cover page.

    It was suggested by Ex Libris support that once in a while we will create a set of all the records for which the embargo date passed, And run on them the 'Update Set of Research Assets' job - replacing the access rights to ‘Open’.

    We would like this process to be seamless. We request a job that automatically updates Esploro records whose embargo…

  2. Offer separate search scopes for faculty and student research assets

    Our institution uses Esploro to provide access to two different types of research assets: faculty publications and ETDs. Currently, Esploro offers the option to search ETDs separately from other assets. However, it is not possible to search our faculty assets separate from ETDs. We would like the option of parsing students and faculty assets into completely separate search scopes rather than having them combined into one.

  3. Unpaywall OAI-PMH Output

    Here at RMIT University, we would like to make available our open access repository content to Unpaywall. https://unpaywall.org/

    In order to do this, Unpaywall have advised us of two changes that need to be made to our OAI-PMH output to enable harvesting by them.
    Firstly, they require us to configure our OAI-PMH to include clear identifications of the versions of the attached open access files, i.e.. Published Version, Accepted Manuscript and Submitted Version.
    These descriptions are used in our current Esploro Repository instance and it would be ideal if these could be included in our OAI-PMH output. Unpaywall have recommended…

  4. Populate permalink with local DOIs/handles

    We are able to generate DOIs for ETDs, but we have found that users are sharing the generated permalink instead of the assigned DOI.

    In any instance where there is a local DOI or handle, it would be great to have it populating in the permalink field.

  5. Allow records from Alma and records from esploro to be part of the same collection in Primo

    In Alma we can group records into Collections (Inventory -> Manage Collections).
    The collections are presented in Primo.
    Esploro records are also displayed in our Primo. We want to be able to attach records from Esploro to display in a collection together with Alma records.

    Scenario:
    The "Science Teaching" department asked us to create a collection for them in Primo. They would like to see in this collection publications of their scientists (coming from Esploro) along with books and journals published by them (which are coming from Alma - physical and digital items).

  6. Add the ability to view Publishing Information to Esploro research assets

    For Alma physical, electronic and digital records there is the option for administrators to view the Publishing information.
    This functionality does not exist for Esploro Research Assets.
    Can the ability to view publishing information for Research Assets be added to help enable troubleshooting.

  7. Improve Grant discovery in Research Portal

    We want to work with our Grants Office to track funding acquired by researchers. However, the only way to access grant information is through individual researcher profiles. I believe we can publish Analytics reports for grants to a public webpage in the meantime, but it would be nice to link grants to specific researcher profiles since we are already tracking this information.

    Enhancement request: Add the ability to view Grants in the Esploro interface. This might include 1) a tab for Grants that shows a results page for grants, linked to Researcher profiles, with limiters for Org Unit, Grant Category,…
