  1. Include asset status (provisional or approved) in Author Matching Report

    When using the Author Matching Report to approve individual researchers on records that were imported via smart harvest, we would find it very useful to be able to distinguish the asset status -- that is, to be able to tell if the asset is still provisional or if it is approved. If we approve one author on an asset, and then create an Author Matching Report it is useful context to know that there is a local co-author. It is also helpful to know there is no local co-author for authors that would typically write with other people at our…

  2. Allow repository staff to send canned responses

    Allow customers the ability to create and store canned messages that can be used when communicating with researchers. Esploro already offers the ability to create custom return reasons that can be selected when returning a deposit. But this feature would be even more useful if selecting of one of those reasons also sent customizable canned message that could be used to provide further instruction to the researcher on how to modify and resubmit their deposit. It would be useful to have a set of canned messages that could be used when approving a deposit to notify the researcher if any…

  3. Add a creation date to the summary asset record

    In order to manipulate and identify files for individual or batch processing, the display of the asset record creation date in the summary asset record would be very useful.
    I've attached an image of the existing summary asset record. At present, only an 'Asset last updated' field is included. It would be a logical next step to display when the record was created.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Add research topics at "add researcher" step within record

    When a researcher is incorrectly matched, we often have to create a new non-affiliated one in the record. We can add their affiliation, but we can't add research topics. If the name is common, we have to look them up by researcher and add the research topics.

    It would be more efficient to add research topics (as keywords) during this step.

  7. Portal - Author/Creator Facet - Show/Filter by Affiliated Persons Only

    Currently the Portal shows both affiliated and non-affiliated persons together in the 'Author/Creator' facet on the results page. The suggestion here is that this facet should show only affiliated persons. The purpose of the portal is to reflect institutional work, and this would clarify that the portal user is filtering to affiliated persons. This would also reduce the potential for duplication of names (e.g. where a non-affiliated person was imported as two different persons).

    For example, please see: https://scholarlyworks.adelphi.edu/discovery/search?query=any,contains,%22Adelphi%27s%20Celebration%20of%20Scholarly%20Research%20%26%20Creative%20Works%202021%22&tab=Research&search_scope=Research&sortby=title&vid=01ADELPHI_INST:ResearchRepository&offset=0

    (where Barbara Milrod and Barbara L Milrod currently appear as separate persons due to multiple non-affiliated person imports)

  8. The 'Pages' field should appear in all asset types

    Hi,
    The "Pages" field appears only in some of the asset types. It should appear in all of them.

  9. 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.
