  1. Multiple list owners on a readinglist

    We have many courses where multiple academics are involved in teaching. It would be useful if we could assign more than one list owner so they could work on it collaboratively. Based on feedback from academics this would be very well recieved at our instiution.

    • Report a problem (with this resource)

      When users click on a broken link, they should have the option of reporting the problem. "Report a problem (with this resource)" which, when taken, should include the link and basic metadata for the resource with the option for the user to provide usual name/email/description information.

      • Book Metadata Refresh: list the items that were linked

        When the Book Metadata Refresh notification email comes, it gives a figure for the number of items that were linked to the library catalogue. It would be useful to be able to see which items have been linked by Admin>Review Jobs>Show Details. That way we could compile a monthly list which library staff could use to spot
        a) titles where Note For Student / Not for Library can be removed
        b) alternative bookmark suggestions for List Owners (eg substituting new editions that have arrived)

        • Manual entry - fields appear automatically according to resource type selected

          Would be helpful, when using manual add, if once you had selected the resource type, a standard set of entry fields could appear automatically, as appropriate to the type of resource, e.g. for article, 'author', 'page numbers', 'part of' & for journals, 'volume', 'date' etc.

          • Export bibliography in list order (not alphabetical)

            We would like to be able to export a reading list in a bibliographic citation format but keeping the list structure, e.g. week one, week two etc. The current export options are 'export to PDF' which only lists title/author and doesn't contain the full bibliogaphic detail, or the 'view bibliography' button which lists everything alphabetically by author.

            Our academics need to add reading list content to their printed course outlines so we need to be able to export reading lists from Aspire into the course outline, with a 'week by week' structure where appropriate. Many academics are understandably extremely reluctant…

            • Option of Student Numbers defaulting to hierarchy not list

              We have student numbers for our modules stored in our student administration system. We want to be able to upload this information through the hierarchy into Aspire, and this be the definitive student number for the lists. Academics editing the list however, are able to add their own numbers, and this is the number which is shown in Reviews 2.0 i.e. list numbers have precedence over hierarchy upload numbers. We would like to be able to choose which number is set as the default – hierarchy or list number

              • Include the Ability to Add the 'Format' field within a bookmark

                Sometimes when bookmarking the 'Format' field will be automatically included in the record. When it is not, there is no option from the drop-down to add it. This must be a simple thing to rectify, and is causing us to use workarounds when listing eBooks where the field is not present.
