ADD RESOURCE - add world-wide searching to integrated discovery function

Hello, We've recently added the OCLC discovery integration to our ADD RESOURCE button within the reading list. It's a significant improvement on searching the Nielson database. However, it currently searches our own holdings only. We would ideally...

Bookmarking print and ebook in one go

Where we have a title in both print and ebook format, I'd love if we could make bookmarklet pick up the LCN for the print version, so we get copy and availability info in the bookmark, but also pick up the 856 $u URL or the Uresolver link for the ...

Exporting PDFs from an archived or draft list

Most of our unit assessors don't manage their own lists, so new ones often ask for a copy of the list so that they can work on any changes they need. The ability to download a PDF of an archived or draft list would be great. Otherwise we have to d...

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.

Many of our users would like the ability to make individual sections 'staff view only' aka 'not visible to students' even when the list is published. Hidden sections could be indicated by the standard 'eye-icon' that most users are familiar with. ...
