  2. ETD/Student work deposit notification

    There is currently only one letter that can be used for ETDs with limited options for customization.

    To best serve our student community, it is important to have an ETD deposit notification letter that is generated when an ETD is ingested in Esploro. This communication allows us to not only confirm their deposit has been review and ingested, but to provide the student with the open access permanent URL (handle) that they can use when citing their work. In many cases, this information is required by employers or for other verification purposes.

    This information is vital to our student depositors,…

  3. Enable multiple creators for ETDs

    Currently, the ETD author field is not repeatable. We have many ETDs that are co-authored (some having up to 6 authors). Additional authors can be added in the contributors section with role author, but that a) gives them much less prominence in the record and b) requires creating a non-affiliated researcher record. We request that the ETD author field be repeatable to allow for the same level of attribution in the discovery record, and prevent the creation of non-affiliated researcher records which duplicate existing Alma profiles.

  4. Resources in Esploro duplicated in Primo VE

    Resources inserted in Esploro are duplicated in Primo VE when a bibliographic record for the same work exists in Alma or in other collections.
    We are proposing that the deduplication process, used in Primo VE for other record sources, wolud be used also for Esploro resources

  5. Automated emailing of registered DOIs to ETD authors

    Add a scheduled job that automatically emails ETD authors the DOI registered in Esploro for their thesis/dissertation using the email address imported from ETD Admin. Otherwise the DOI is created for the work, but the authors don't even know the DOI exists.

  6. Tagging Selected Outputs in Esploro

    1.0 Proposal to tag or highlight selected outputs

    We would like to explore the possibility of “tagging” (or similar demarcation) selected outputs in Esploro to differentiate / highlight them.

    This tagging will be additional to the current search / refine options (such as Research Unit or Subject).
    All forms of outputs (articles, data sets etc) should be eligible for tagging.

    For example, we may want to “tag” Covid-19 research papers and data, or other key research on particular themes or goals.

    Ideally, there should also be an option of sub-tagging eg. a main tag, and a sub-tag (ie. the option…

  7. Manually reorder researcher education history

    Currently you cannot reorder the education history in a researcher record or via the profile. When you add education (without date information) through the profile or researcher record, it automatically creates a new row at the bottom of the list. Thus, if you are adding education information that was missed, this could result in the list not being sorted chronologically. Adding dates in does allow the sort to work properly, but only if you have dates for all education entries. If you only have partial dates, it will sort the numbered entries correctly, and the unnumbered ones will be sorted…
