Batch loader improvement (Vandelay)

3

Once the queue has been processed with a record match set any changes to the bib records do affect non-imported records in the queue. If duplicate records are merged then there will be an error that the bib record is not found. If you load based on single match you cannot merge duplicate records and then resume the load. You either finish the load based on best match and then merge records or you merge the records and then reload the queue. This means all records have to be loaded the second time as there’s no way of knowing which were imported and which were non-imported.

Ability to configure match set when duplicates found in batch loading (Vandelay)

3

This problem occurs when there are duplicate records in a file load. If the file has duplicate records the system does not see this as a match. I would like a record of duplicate records in the file, giving the matchpoint and configurable to add other fields such as title, publisher, date. Ideally, I would like to prevent duplicates from loading in the first place.

When adding Fund Tags, allow for the selection of multiple tags to be added all at once instead of having to add one at a time

Provider URLs in provider records set as a hot links

2

Might it be possible sometime down the road to have the URL in the Provider record as a hot link to quickly open the vendor site (in a new window)?  Then if we need to print out a paper copy of an invoice in the list, we could just click on the link to the Provider record, then click on the URL to access the vendor site.  And if that can be done, how about a hot link to the EDI account Host (vendor FTP server) to easily access the server for removal of older files that have already loaded to Evergreen?

Handle "un-named list" list in selection list better

3

When you create a new Selection List then open My Selection Lists, the system creates a new selection list called "unnamed, with no line items, in addition to the named SL you have created. This should be cleaned up and removed without having to do a separate delete action.

I also thought this was fixed but I am still seeing it occur when manually creating selection lists.

Continued by and Continues MARC Fields should show in bib record

4

The MARC fields 780 (Continues) and 785 (Continued by) should show in the bib record and be hot linked to the former or newer title, if the record is in the library network catalog.

Serial Record option for libraries not barcoding journal issues

4

There should be an option to have a serial record instead of an item record for libraries that do not barcode serial issues. The serial record would show scope, location, availability and issues held.

In My Courses provide a method for students to remove themselves from a course.

2

In the current system, you must have admin privileges to remove yourself from a course.  This has to be moved to a more public area of the system.

Provide a means to archive course sites and terms to preserve statistics

5

At the present time, if you delete a term the associated statistics are also deleted.  Would it be possible to archive or export information from past semesters?

More patron information on screen when placing hold from bib record

3

Placing holds can be done starting either from the patron record and then selecting a bib, or searching for a bib record and then choosing the patron. If you're starting from the bib record, and then input the patron barcode, you get very little confirmation that you have the correct patron before proceeding with the hold submission (see screenshot below). Version 2.3 does at least include confirmation of the contact info (email and text) but it would be incredibly helpful to have the patron's name, address, and phone number(s). Read more »

Make it possible to search for a particular part on a bib record

2

There should be a way to search for a particular part on a bib record. This only need be displayed on bib records with many items, but on those records with many items (for example http://bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/record/2379712) it is essential. This could be accomplished with a dropdown menu similar to the one seen when placing a hold. This should be possible not just in the OPAC, but everywhere where items are listed for a bibliographic record in the staff client as well.

Authorities Linking

9

Currrently, you have to run an authority linking to connect the authorities file to the bib record on the appropriate line.  One of the issues we have is that when a record is brought in via z39.50 it overlays the existing record wiping the links to the authority file.   This can also happen throught the vandelay load.  We need an efficient way that does not impact system performance to recreate those links.  Unfortunately, for C/W MARS it takes an extremely long time (probably a couple of weeks if we ran the linking continuously to link all the records).

Warning when Deleting an Academic Term

6

When you delete a term in Syrup, all course sites and related items are deleted from the database.  Syrup should issue a warning to this effect when the user chooses to delete a term.  This would be helpful so that course sites are not inadvertently deleted before they can be duplicated for future terms.

Improve Authorization for Sharing Folders in Reports

3

In the Reports interface, users can share folders for templates, reports and output.  Currently, users with this authorization can share reports at the branch, system or consortium level.  We would like to have a separate authorization for sharing folders at the consortium level.

Column in Check In to show # of Items Still Out

2

I would like a Column available in check in that shows how many items the associated patron still has checked out.  Patrons returning items, but not checking out, often would like to know how many items, if any, they still have out.  This column would save the time of clicking on the patron and waiting for their info to load.

Make it possible for multi-campus libraries to look up users from all campuses

4

When selecting instructors to add to courses, libraries with multiple campuses can access users associated with one library branch/campus.  They need to be able to access all users, regardless of their campus affiliation without having to edit their user record to change the home library field.

Serials receiving: "set current unit" should be "sticky"

8

When receiving issuances in serial control view, you should be able to select a default setting for the "set current unit" option.  This setting should be "sticky" and not change from session to session.  In general, libraries either create copies for serials or do not create copies.  They should not have to change this setting each time they log in.
