  1. Local copyright permissions

    Over the years we've negotiated permissions with some publishers. Our local permissions can differ to information in Sherpa.

    We'd like a way to upload these permissions into Esploro so that we could interrogate it in a similar way to how we can through Sherpa in the form.

  2. Indication of suppressed asset on Researcher Profile

    Currently, there is no indication for the researcher to know that an asset has been suppressed via the back-end beyond the fact that it is not visible in the Research Portal (as it still displays as normal in the Researcher Profile when signed in).

    It would be good if there was an indication, similar to the notification when an asset is hidden, so that a researcher is aware that a particular asset has been suppressed in the back-end by the Librarian.

  3. Analytics should normalize publication titles to cluster article in the same journal more effectively

    Analytics currently considers capitalization variants as different for publication titles, and does not disregard initial articles. After a CDI migration in early December, we have both "American Journal of Psychiatry" and "The American journal of psychiatry". We have also gotten both "Gynecologic Oncology" and "Gynecologic oncology" and we have "PloS one" as well as "PLoS ONE" and "PLOS ONE".

  4. Add "Organization ID" to Export to Excel

    It would be great if "Organization ID" was added to the assets fields exported to Excel (in "Export list").

  5. Add Date Presented to Analytics Researcher Subject Area > Date

    At the moment, the Esploro Researcher subject area > Asset Dates has nearly all dates except "Date Presented", which is only in the Esploro Research Assets subject area.

    This means that if we need to produce a report that includes the dates of our assets, we need to use the Researcher subject area instead of the Research Assets subject area. Alternatively, we need to manually add the date for any 'date presented' assets.

    It would be good if the dates were the same in each of the subject areas allowing for more flexibility in reporting.

  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. Display All Asset Record IDs in Alma/Esploro Editing Screen

    Include all asset record IDs in Alma/Esploro for easier construction of OAI-PMH GetRecord requests. These currently only work on <identifier>oai:alma.61RMIT_INST:11247527950001341</identifier> and this identifier is not displayed in any asset record. This makes it impossible to complete a GetRecord request.

  8. Alma Esploro Interface and Alma Users as Researchers

    In the Alma Esploro interface we would like to not have to edit Researcher roles when a User is also a Researcher. Right now anyone with an Alma login will need to be granted an Observer role in Esploro if they are made Researchers.

  9. Add Thesis dc Field to OAI Output

    Add the <dc:type>Thesis</type> to identify theses.

    Theses are frequently searched for by our Research Repository users and this would make them more discoverable.

    Thank you

  10. Confirmation message when updating area of interest - Backend

    When editing a profile from the Alma backend it is incredibly easy to accidently delete the Areas of Interest section which, if done accidently, would require the researcher to enter the details again. It would be good to have a confirmation message attached to this action e.g. Are you sure you want to delete the Areas of Interest from the Profile?. I know this is operator error and you could cancel out of the record, but I’m sure it’s going to happen at some point.

  11. Controlled vocabulary for Series titles

    We request to add controlled vocabulary for series titles. It can be like the journal's one - against the community zone.
