Exception List when bookmarking
We would like a resource exception list so, when bookmarking from specified resources, TARL does not check the local LMS or OpenLibrary for metadata.
We have a resource called Safari Online, it contains lots of IT books. Sometimes, when trying to bookmark to the title level or chapter level, if the item is found in our LMS or in openlibrary, the metadata from these systems will be used instead of the Safari resource. The main fustrating thing about this, is that the URL to the item is not added to the bookmark. The academics adding items ot the list, need to go back into the bookmark, and add a URL etc. However, the URL construction is complicated and extra infromation needs to be added to make it WAYFless. When TARL works as expected all this information is automatically added to the URL.
We would like to specify that when bookmarking from Safari do not check the LMS or OpenLibrary.

Alternatively, if Aspire finds multiple hits for an ISBN in your LMS could it offer the choice of which one to bookmark? If possible, it would identify whether an item was print or e and give the end user the option to bookmark either one. It should be able to distinguish (in most cases) by the presence of a web address. in the 856 field.
This could help both with the problem of print being bookmarked instead of ebooks and to alert the academic to the fact the book exists in both forms.
