    The only workaround for this seems to be in narrative view - this would be such a big help and smooth the gap between Analytics v Alma inline workflows in several areas, electronic resources, Leganto reading lists and similar where actionable hyperlinks could support workflow steps currently only achievable from extracts or more manual work-arounds.

    The Feb 2019 release the Brief Citation Format mapping table provides configurable functionality which potentially addresses the above requirements. The provision of a configurable JSON array specifying the citation metadata elements, together with delimiting rules and prefix and suffixing and alternate labelling are very welcome, though there appear to be a couple of issues to check as regards the treatment of the arrays in the First and Second Rows of the Brief Citation display. Also the ellipsis "..." feature present in the March release Author fields may have unexpected effects for the appearance of the first row if customers make alterations to the default JSON arrays with the AUTHOR-TITLE elements.

    Hopefully the Feb 2019 'Disabling availability links' largely addresses this, though there were some issues raised around the direct linking behaviour where Check availability reappeared if certain links were disabled/hidden. This is subject to further work from Ex Libris, expecting a list update.

    Chris Jones commented  · 

    Hi,
    It's possible that the NERS Request 5892 voted through from the 2018 ballot will address much of this, i.e. "Ability to manage which links display for a citation in Leganto"

    Currently there are two levels of service visibility in Leganto's front-end:
    i) Brief view (list level) - which behaves according to the configured customer settings for "force_direct_uresolver"
    ii) The full item view (a lesser-travelled road for eresources, probably) which will show all the services, as you say in Links and Availability.
    Connected to this, I know we're reviewing our Alma Fulfillment/ display logic configuration for the Online Services Order, to potentially boost publisher platforms and non-archive collections, and look again at Display logic rules to see if any collections could even be hidden in the context of others being present.

    With the Primo Normalization Rules, the PNX>Leganto mappings and Brief Citation Display there is a lot of functionality now around this, but it would be useful to do more with the punctuation handling of the creator or addata/au addata/addau punctuation. Might be useful to have a wider list discussion on this as doubtless display preferences vary regionally and institutionally for certain data points.

    It would be interesting to learn how many other customers have LC or Dewey classifications in their Ebook records -whether deliberately as it were, or more by chance from the suppliers of ebooks purchased, and therefore what proportion of their total materials w/could get interfiled.

    Has this one been addressed indirectly from the August 2018 release? 'existing Library tag type was renamed Instructor-Library. A new tag type, Library-Internal, was added and is visible only by librarians (in Alma and Leganto)'.

    Further to my last comment, The March 2019 release change, moving some Reading List Tasks to be Citation level Tasks, makes this enhancement all the more urgent, as some tasks inevitably require users to get to the Leganto view, AND/ OR the Reading list in Alma.

    The link between Item and its lists should be more direct otherwise it loses some of the value of being able to handle the lowest level of detail in bulk/ avoid repeated checking of ultimately the same thing (in Leganto). More flexible workflows and list checking would be enabled by adding list level links both to Alma (for non-Leganto users too) and to Leganto list view itself.

    Chris Jones commented  · 

    With the enhancements to Edit Citations and Citations view, and citations being in Persistent Search in Alma it is becoming more of a problem to NOT be able (easily) to get from an item to the list to which is belongs. This is an essential part of a Unified Resource Management system.

    I wonder whether people feel that the sort and my lists filter added in the August 2018 release and associated with SF cases 00463479 00343562 00404230 has gone much of the way to addressing the course list/my lists separation?

    This is a major user with the loss of the heavily-used folder and annotation features (pseudo-reference management for higher education users is expected for large numbers of items).
    Design consistency in Ex Libris products would be welcomed here - you can search my collection in Leganto for example.

    The Changes in May release have made this less of an issue (as items can be dragged straight into a list, though the extra 'click to see the add action' is still present.
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Leganto/Release_Notes/01_2018/08_May_2018/Leganto_Release_Notes_May_2018

    This idea is much less important now.

    The October 2018 release made a change to how list status is affected (or not) by the presence of complete citations on a list which was published by an Instructor. Previously, the publication of a list (whether it had completed citations or not) caused the list status to change to "Ready for Processing". After the change, it is possible for RLs to remain as "Being Prepared" even when an instructor has published the list. This is a step backwards in controlling the process workflow of reading lists which have not yet been looked at. It is significant to know who set a list to completed (Librarian vs instructor).

    Chris Jones commented  · 

    These are good suggestions.
    Until Dec 17 there was an oddity whereby citations could all auto-complete on a list and the send to library option was not available. This seems to have been resolved. Agree that assignment changing list status to something different also makes sense - though we would also like to be abl to change list status without having to assign at all (from Reading list task list - see separate idea).

    The only one I wondered about was the all citation complete = list complete - would this be regardless as to whether published/sent to the library? and what would you see as the list status needed for new additions to a published list? i.e. the completed_list_new_citation_status - what would you choose here? I suppose it's 'if all complete then send, but set as complete'?
    We still like to see lists as a final pass, even if the citations are all repository/PCI and set to auto-complete via the Course Management Workflow settings, so agree configurable is good!

    Agree. With so many citation material types visible in the Leganto front-end, and brief citations in Alma, it would be useful if Ex Libris could provide a little more information on the underlying field logic (which fields are distinct/reused across different material types. Can see that this may be a headache for label configuration, but it would give people much more certainty about field mappings (Primo/Cite it!/RIS, etc), and more confidence in how tightly citation locate was really working, as well as assisting with user-interface consistency.
