Add ability to change icons for Library and Student notes

In consultation with stakeholders on our Indigenising Curriculum reading list, a question was raised on whether it was possible to change the icons for Library and Student notes to something less aggressively Western. The specific suggestion made ...

option to make email entry mandatory on report a broken link feedback forms

We have been receiving a number of report a broken link reports from our users, but without the email address being added. We would like us to have the option to make the email entry be mandatory as often when looking into these we need more infor...

Make the 'Report Broken Link' button only appear as an option for electronic resources

We have recently activated the 'Report broken link' feature. However we are surprised to see it appears as an option for both electronic and print resources. This has confused students, with many assuming online access to a print resource is broke...

'Go to bottom' tab

In the same way that there is a 'go to top' tab, it would be useful to have a 'go to bottom' tab at the top of reading lists. Useful when working on long lists, after publishing, searching from bottom upwards, etc

Relocate the Google Preview Button

The new 'View Availability' button is currently overridden by the 'Google Preview' button. We believe that this may confuse students, and make them think that resources with the Google Preview button might not have items available in the library t...

Ability to 'cut & paste' sections of a reading list into another reading list. I work on multiple programmes where my subject is one of several within a module, each of which has its own, specific reading list associated. With the current set-up, this means that my texts need to be painstakingly added to each. functionality that enables you to lift whole sections (or a link to all/part of another reading list) would save huge amounts of time each year.

It would be really useful to be able to run a report on digitisation requests where the PDF has not been OCRd. That information doesn't currently exist in Advanced MIS, but Consulting can run a custom report to generate a report.

Ebook cover images

We find the book cover images useful for new users in making the lists more attractive to the eye. These work fine when we are including physical books on the list, but as we are increasingly moving to an e-first policy the ISBN no longer has a co...

Report on deleted lists using Advanced MIS

Advanced MIS is supposed to enable us to report on anything and everything to do with Talis Aspire: items, lists, hierarchy, rollovers, and users, plus staff and end user interactions with the whole system. It seems a bit odd then that we're unabl...
