  1. Ability to set a privacy flag in researcher profiles using APIs

    Our university provides staff with the ability to set their contact details (work phone, email, office location) as public vs private in our HR system, which determines if these contact details are visible on public-facing applications and systems. These privacy settings do not currently flow through to Esploro. It is not currently possible to change visibility of contact details at an individual level in researcher profiles, either manually or via API. We would like to add the ability to use the Alma/Esploro APIs to set these privacy flags in Esploro Researcher Profiles as well, so that researchers contact details set…

  2. Ability to harvest full text files

    The overarching goal of an institutional repository is to provide free public access to the research and creative output of the institution. Although Esploro offers institutions the ability to grow their repository by harvesting publication metadata from external sources, the imported metadata is of limited value without full text. We would like to see Esploro's smart harvesting capabilities extended by offering customers the option to match imported records with full text available from sources like Unpaywall. Using Unpaywall's API, it should conceivably be possible to identify Creative Commons licensed full text files, import them into the repository, and match them…

  3. Integration with Interfolio

    One of our biggest hurdles to having comprehensive researcher profiles in Esploro is the aggravation researchers feel when they have to enter the same information into multiple different systems. We would like to eliminate that aggravation by integrating Esploro with Interfolio, so Interfolio could provide updates to researcher info.

  4. OAI-PMH Support of Query Based Sets

    When working with a OAI-PMH import profile you must select an existing record set provided from the OAI-PMH provider. Some providers, Datacite as an example, offer the ability to harvest a record set using a query[1] which is not included as a predefined record sets by the ListSets method. The OAI-PMH import profile should offer the ability to select a record set to harvest from a pre-defined list OR provide a record set name not in the list, a query in the case of Datacite.

  5. Zotero - Esploro: can you make it work?

    We recommend all our users to use Zotero as their reference management software. Its connector captures a lot of metadata from a vast variety of sources...but in Esploro it doesn't work. I dont see how we can encourage users to use this platform when at the moment of the research they will have to go get the metadata from another source or manually enter it. We would love to be able to use the Zotero connector when in Esploro to capture the metadata and the pdf if possible, of the item. Could you please take this idea into consideration? Thanks…

  6. "Update DOI Registration Agency - Research Assets" Job Improvements

    The "Update DOI Registration Agency - Research Assets" job that runs daily does not provide detailed reporting. A detailed report of successfully updated, failed, and migrated assets would aid in troubleshooting and administration of the job.
