    In the May 2020 Release the following capability was introduced

    UTF-8 Special Character Handling

    Alma offers a new method of handling UTF-8 special characters (with diacritics). UTF-8 special characters may be represented in both the composed or decomposed version of the character in bibliographic or authority records. Now, you have the option to configure your system with normalize on save always to save the composed version of special characters. This may be especially useful to implement to avoid the use case where multiple records are changed due to their conversion to composed representation. Such records are marked for preferred-term correction (PTC) and cause heading updates (the only difference is the composed/decomposed nature of a special character).

    See here for more details:

    In the December 2020 release, new capabilities were added for Enhanced Staff Audit Capabilities. A new option allows audit of the public IP address of the users that logged into Alma. This new option now appears on the Staff Login Report (Alma Configuration > General > Staff Login Report). This is useful if the institution needs to be able to track from which IP address a staff user logged in for security audit reasons

    Thanks for raising this topic, which Ex Libris supports in different way than via Analytics. This was also a request in the NERS 2020 enhancements, and we are now in the process of rolling out improved functionality for an easier way to leverage Alma's Search and Indication rule functionality to query down to the field and tag level. For details please see here: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Knowledge_Articles/NERS_2020#NERS_6795:_Improve_Repository_Search_functionality_with_free_text_options_for_MARC_tags_and_subfields_in_Advanced_Search

    Hi

    Can you please provide specifics? Alma does have OLH in Spanish

    Hi Lori

    Thanks for the input. We have done some work in the new UI on various icons and check marks. Have you looked at this? Can you provide more details on the specific screens and examples you are referencing?

    Hi Kevin

    Thanks for the input. Attached is a screenshot of an Item in the Item Editor, showing the creation date/created by details. Is there something else?

    Hi Sue

    The MARC21 authority profile in Alma does includes the subfields you mention. For example, field 100 has subfields f, k, l, m, n, o, p, r, s, t.

    Can you please explain where you find these subfields missing?

    Thanks

    Improvements have been made in the November 2016 Release to the way in which the Back browser button functions while working in Alma. If a Back button exists on the Alma page, the Back browser button simulates the Back button in Alma. If a Cancel button exists on the Alma page, the Back browser button simulates the Cancel button. Otherwise, the Back browser button goes to the last Alma page in the browser’s history.

    If you could provide more details on which use cases and scenarios this would be beneficial, this could help Alma Product Management better analyze this idea.

    While the Alma APIs do not currently allow full response customization for all APIs, in several cases we have added support parameters which allow clients to alter the response. For example, the Retrieve User API has a view parameter in which a brief response can be requested. The Retrieve BIB API has an expand parameter by which clients can request that additional information be added to the response.

    We plan to continue the above approach and add view or expand parameters to individual APIs where we anticipate they will have the greatest impact.
