How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Ability to set default link for Online Resource button

At present when bookmarking electronic material the default order for links used for the Online Resource button is:

1. Open URL
2. DOI
3. Web Address

It would be useful if this could be configured for individual tenancies, as some customers may wish to have a different default order.

    MyiLibrary e-book records have 2 links in our catalogue record: an on-campus link and an off-campus link constructed to mimic an on-campus experience.
    When a bookmark has 2 web addresses, the "Access the ebook" button is taking the 1st web address and not the one selected to use for the online resources button. There is no relationship between the online resource button and the "Access the ebook" button. We would like the "Access the ebook" link to match the selected off-campus url in order for off-site users not to have to authenticate themselves

    We have the same problem - DOI doesn't work for off-campus users and so we have had to try to train our academics both to add a Web Address field to their bookmarks for online journal articles, *and* to make sure that is what the Link To option is pointing to rather than the DOI. Being able to configure the default setting of this for our tenancy would be really helpful.

    The addition of the online resource button for articles has been disastrous for is. We do not display the DOI link for articles, as this does not get users to a copy of the article they can access. Despite this, the Online Resource button uses the DOI link by default. We need to be able to choose the behaviour of the online resource button at the tenancy level.
