Note field for list itself

A 'Note' field (that students cannot see) that applies to an entire list would be useful. This would allow us to tag lists as 'Online only module - e-resources only' or 'Visually impaired student on this module 24/25' so that everyone who edits a ...

Note For Library - see reporter + get alert when note has been added to reading list

We don't currently assign list owners to reading lists, so can't see who has added a Note for Library. It would also be helpful to have (optional) ability to turn on functionality to send alert when Note to Library has been added.

Enable a 'Key Theorist' label to be added to resources that are old but foundational

To enhance how reading lists can support the development of students' information literacy skills (particuarly among first-years), it would be useful if resources could be tagged/labelled as 'Key Theorist'. This would indicate to students that the...

Add a 'Newest Edition' label to Books/Chapters based on metadata

Currently, if we want to indicate a Book/Chapter is the newest edition, we need to communciate this through Notes. It would be very useful if Books/Chapters were automatically tagged with a 'Newest edition' label based on their metadata. This woul...

In the list 'Analytics' dashboard there is 'Resource health' function. It would be useful if there was also a 'List health' function, indicating: How long since any resources have been added or removed from the list (not just when the list was las...

Change the colour of the 'Unpublished changes!' warning bar

Unfortunately our users often miss the 'Unpublished changes!' bar on lists as the yellow colour makes it look like a 'status update' (like the blue bar 'A review has been request') rather than an important alert that they need to do something. Ple...

Improve 'Resource health' functionality in List Analytics

Currently in list analytics, a resource says the 'Metadata could be improved' if: it has Editors instead of Authors if it has no Edition information because it is a first edition This is particularly frustrating when librarians are metadata-checki...

Enable multiple timestamped 'Notes' to be added to resources including 'Notes FROM Library'

Currently we ask users to manually add the date and their name when they create a 'Note for Library' so librarians know when their note was written and by who. Unfortunately, our users often forget, and it can be difficult to distinguish new notes...

★ Make the 'Unpublished changes!' warning bar float as you scroll down a list

Unfortunately our users tend to miss the 'Unpublished changes!' yellow warning bar. If it floated as you scrolled down the list (like the 'Back to top' button and Table of Contents/Filters do), it would be more visible and obvious to users.

★ Change the wording of the 'Unpublished changes!' yellow warning bar

Unfortunately the word 'Publish' to make changes visible to students does not resonate with our users. To make this clearer, the yellow warning bar should say: "Unpublished changes! Your changes are not visible to your students" --> Publish
