My Account: Add owning library to items out information

1

It would be helpful for patrons to see which library owns the copy they have checked out.

Library staff can easily look this up, but patrons can't easily find it (they would need to know the barcode to match it to the right copy).  

If a patron runs out of renewals they may need to follow up with the owning library.  Also some libraries charge fines and some do not so it may help to know which items may accrue fines.

It would be great if we could add the Owning Library field to the My Account - Items Out - Current Items Out screen in My Account.

Allow patrons to sort their "My List" by owning library

10

I had a request from a patron who uses "My List" often. She would like to be able to sort by owning library so that when she goes to one library she can easily see what is available there at that time. If she goes to a different library the next day she could re-sort to see what is currently at that location.

Show the system and branches' copy location filter on system level search or branch level search on TPAC Advanced Search page

10

It would be ideal if both system and branch level copy location filters could be displayed and used on Advanced Search page on public catalogue, and user could search system's, all branches', or 1 branch's copy location as needed. 

There has been development work in this regard already, but I thought I would submit an idea as I do not find an exact match on this idea site. There is a Launchpad ticket.

Holds and suggested items

28

After a hold is placed, we'd love to be able to provide other suggestions on the hold confirmation page (sort of like what amazon does after an order is placed).

This may not be feasible without a subscription to a third party added content service such as NoveList, but since NoveList provides recommendations from the item details page, perhaps we could also leverage that from the hold confirmation page.

Author Pages in Catalog

34

New OPAC feature idea - generate author pages that display all the titles associated with that author that are in the collection, cross-link to alternate names (from see-alsos in authority records?), and maybe pull in some bio info via linked data from a third party?

Metaholds: Improve workflow

Tags:

Few patrons (or staff) ever click on the Advanced Hold Options link - if the metahold options were displayed differently, perhaps on the main hold screen rather than on a separate Advanced screen, I think they would be used more.

Online payments: setting for minimum payment level

Tags:

Add a library setting to be able to require a minimum payment level. (Currently, this can only be modified in the code, and only for the entire consortium.)

Ability to Refine Search by Publication Date

Tags:
27

Add the ability to refine search results by publication year.

Perhaps a date slider that users can specify beginning and ending year for results.  

Or a facet with links for

last 5 years

last 10 years

custom year range

Known issue = consistency of extracting publication year from MARC data
