Adding page numbers to Request Digitisation screen
Would it be possible to add 'page numbers' on the first tab of the Request Digitisation screen?
We are getting 90% of requests put through with the chapter/article page references in the Note fields (despite telling people this is not its purpose). This means we have to resubmit the request and edit the biblio.
This would also help us to select the best copy possible from our shelves. If we have ten copies of the book, but don't know what the pages requested are, we are having to write on the chapter title so we can identify the cleanest/unmarked book, and this adds time to request processing.
As part of the changes to the request form we have made it clearer where page numbers should be added to save these being entered in the wrong fields.

Also wondering about the planned implementation. It would be really useful.

Any idea when this is planned to be implemented? Frequently lecturers add the page numbers to the note field in the reading list for a book entry which then doesn't auto-populate the request in the way that a Chapter entry would. They then try to be helpful and input the page numbers in the request but have no place to do so except for the notes page.

yes please- just seeing a batch of references coming through with the chapter & probably notes pages on the 'notes & bibliography tab. It would be good if all of the bib info required could be on one screen e.g. all info for requesting a chapter on one screen, all info for a section on one screen. etc.
