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

0

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.

Public bookbag usage stats

4

I'm not sure if this is already possible or not, so I guess this is part question and part development idea. 

Our staff creates a lot of public bookbags as readers advisory tools - Teen vampire books, John Grisham read-a-likes, etc. - and then integrates them into our website.  This takes a lot of work, so we'd like to be able to evaluate whether or not patron use justifies the staff investment.  Usage stats could also potentially indicate which lists are most popular, which could then guide the creation of additional lists.

Create a printer-friendly version of a My List

2

Our staff creates bookbags for different things, including new items.  It would be helpful to them if there was a print-version of each bookbag, that let them click a button and see their bookbag without any of the catalog navigation, facets, etc - just a list of items with cover image, title, summary, and maybe local call number, and perhaps library logo and name of bookbag.  They could then print it as a simple sign to promote the list to people within the library, or copy/paste into Word to make a nicer sign with far less editing that currently.

Option to hide the facet sidebar and other baggage in shared bookbags to improve embedding

1

It would be nice if we had the option to just show the results-page and to hide the facet_sidebar in the catalog. This would make for much more attractive embedded bookbags. What I am imagining is that you would add something to the query string, giving a URL like https://bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/results?bookbag=16224&embed=true and that this would give you just the list and the list navigation without the headers, footers, sidebars, or search forms.

Change (fix?) how shared bookbags work

2

We noticed the shared bookbags we've created as suggested reading lists for patrons don't act like we'd expect them to.  We've created a lot of these and link to them from our website.  One example is https://chelmsford.mvlc.org/eg/opac/results?bookbag=53516;page=0;locg=18... - it starts with (currently) 51 items, but if a patron sorts by author, title, etc, the total drops to 33.

It seems like the act of sorting eliminates any items we don't own from the list. Read more »
