Library Info Pages: Display Children

Tags:
3

The library info pages (for example, https://gapines.org/eg/opac/library/ROCK) currently link to parent relationships, but not to children relationships.

When viewing a system-level page, it would be helpful to include links to each of the branches for that system.

Library Info Pages: Display Upcoming Closed Dates

9

Add upcoming closed dates to the library info pages that are visible in the OPAC - they currently show default hours, but not closures.

Example page: https://gapines.org/eg/opac/library/ROCK-NG

Allow Accelerated Reader searching by range

6

It would be nice to be able to do a search by Accelerated Reader ranges (Accelerated Reader shows up in MARC 526a, the range in 526c). An example search would be for Accelerated Reader 2.4 through 3.2 for dinosaurs. The library that brought this up to me said this was a feature of the Follett system used in the Newton School Catalog. From the screenshot I saw, the feature is in Follett Destiny.

Add "Move to.." functionality to My Lists in OPAC

Tags:
1

Currently, after a patron logs into the OPAC and opens one of her lists under My Lists, there are two choices in the "actions for these items" drop down list: "place hold" and "remove from list".

Sometimes patrons with multiple lists want to move items directly from one list to another.

The suggestion is to add "Move to.." as a choice in the dropdown and allow direct movement of items from one list to another.

Improve the way browse search matches up headings

23

When you do a browse search, the system displays a list of headings with the number of records for each.  The rules that it uses to match up headings for this display are quite strict, and include differences in case, spacing and punctuation.  If the system ignored these small differences when matching, it would result in a more concise and more useful display.

The only difference in these two titles is the space before the colon Read more »

Improve display for browse search results with no matches

29

 

If the user enters a browse search that doesn't match any headings in the index, the system now shows the alphabetical neighborhood of the words that were entered, with the closest match highlighted. 

It may not be clear to the user why we think that entry is a match, and we want the system to display a message like "Your title would be here" in the list.

Add "Items per Page" section to search results

7

I think this has been brought up before, but I couldn't find the previous idea.

I know patrons can set in their account how many items they'd like to appear on their search results page, but a patron asked that we also add this functionality to the non-logged-in search results page. Read more »

Better tabs in the OPAC

Tags:
28

The search options (basic, advanced, numeric, etc.) should be presented in a single line of tabs that follow normal user interfaces practices (i.e., the same tabs would show on every search page, in the same place each time, with the selected tab highlighted).

Best-First algorithm

1

Best-first search algorithm for OPAC, or even greedy best-first, keyed to rules like popularity, number of holds, and number of copies.
