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)29 votes
We need the ability to bulk assign list publishers to more then one list.
For example, we have departments within the university where the populating of material within reading lists is done by one team within the department, rather than the individual module leader. When new members of staff start with this team, we are often asked that they be assigned as a list publisher to around 100 lists at a time. There is no current option to do this other than go through each list manually. This is time consuming at a particularly busy period for us.7 votes
We often have lecturers wanting to change the priority from Core to Recommended. The ability to select specific multiple items and change them in one go would be VERY helpful.6 votes
We would like to continue to monitor this and see what feedback and future votes are added to this idea.
We should be able to make a user an owner of multiple lists at once, selecting lists by school/department/a search (e.g. MB1* in the module code), with them appearing in a list so we can untick any necessary (i.e. don't just offer us the chance of "all lists in this department" or nothing - we always have to bank on there being exceptions!).5 votes
Bulk editing is not in our near term development focus, so it has been moved to the longer term backlog.
Ideas may be graduated from the backlog as we get through the ones that are planned.
