  1. Move the Library availability applet

    At the moment the Library Availability applet is on the bottom right of the screen. But it is arguably one of the most important things for a student. How about moving it to top right - or giving us the ability to customise this?

    We’ve now moved this applet further towards the top of the screen, just under the “This item appears on…” area.

  2. Support time periods in the item API so we can only see links to current lists in our OPAC

    We would like the users of our OPAC to see the current academic period lists first. From the item screen, they see a maxium of 6 lists and these are not necessarily for the current year, and are not in any order. Also thinking ahead, it would be good to have some control over what appears and how. So maybe all the lists for the current year appear first, alphabetically, then the previous academic year lists?? If there is no flexibility - then just to have the current academic year lists appearing would be preferable.

  3. RESTful API

    Allow requests for simple return of list, section and item titles and urls via json.

    Intended to allow finer grain integration with VLE similar to that demoed by Sussex, but without relying on web scraping:

    http://blogs.sussex.ac.uk/elearningteam/2013/12/10/integrating-reading-lists-talis-aspire/

    This would get the reading list content out of an iframe and into the html of the page, and allow the VLE theme to take consistent control of the display of the reading list material.

    Also allows for innovation by the VLE maintainers with relation to the adding and viewing of reading lists.

    Acknowledge potential issues with metrics capture Aspire side, but highly value…
