  1. Search Holdings in Rapid Interface

    The Search Holdings feature for books is very limited, it doesn't include the Author or Publication Date. Conducting the same search under Borrowing>New Request is inconvenient as there are four required fields.

  2. Separate Mapping List into book chapter lending and whole book lending rules

    Please consider adding could the ability to separate the mapping list between chapter lending and whole book lending. More of our collection is available for chapter scanning than whole book Rapid Returnables lending. For example, we could scan a chapter of a reference book but we would not provide the entire book via Rapid Returnables. We have put in place the more restrictive lending rules as there's no way to distinguish between chapter scanning and whole book lending in the mapping .

  6. Rapidill discrepancy between the date in Alma and on Rapidill web input.

    We are getting requests come through Alma that are lacking information compared to their web version counterparts. In both of these cases in the Alma version we have only got the year of the article which is why we have marked them as a ‘bad citation’ and referred them back to the requester. However, when looking at the Web instance a few minutes later which is not enough time for the request to have been updated, we can see the date information in full. Granted it is in the ‘year’ section however, the concatenation could be causing problems with other…

  7. Add RapidILL fields to Electronic Collections

    Instead of having to enter the RapidILL lending statuses in the internal notes field of electronic collections we would like to have checkboxes added to the electronic collection that would indicate if the collection is LendableInternational, LendableCountry, or Lendable Local

  8. One Pod for all RapidILL customers

    As RapidILL has time-zone and load-balance algorithims in place, it seems that the multiple Pod system is somewhat redundant.

  9. Export monthly borrowing/lending summary reports

    Under Tools > Statistics > Lending Summary/Borrowing Summary, the statistics shown on the screen can drill down to monthly level but when I clicked on Excel, the file does not breakdown to monthly level. We had to resort to copy and paste from the screen into an Excel file and format it. It would save staff time if the export includes the monthly statistics.

  10. Priority by language (not just by time-zone and load-balance)

    Rapid should prioritize the language of requests, so that requests in languages such as Hebrew and Arabic would be sent to libraries specializing in these languages, before other libraries.

  11. Allow manual editing when Rapid set the request on "local holdings" but the article is in volumes we don't hold

    For requests of articles or proceedings from items we have in stock - but for different years. A function to confirm we don't hold that specific issue/year would be beneficial
