  1. Talis Integration

    I would like ProQuest to work with Talis to integrate supplier information (book & ebook prices) into the Talis Aspire product. Talis Aspire has become an integral part of our ordering workflow and other book suppliers have already taken the step to integrate using an API. For us, it would create greater efficiency in stock selection as we would not need to login to multiple websites to check for prices and would almost certainly lead to us buying more books and ebooks from ProQuest.

    It would also help massively if prices shown were inclusive of VAT & discounts. This links…

  2. Make the Bookshelf function shareable across institutions

    The Bookshelf function is a brilliant function of Ebook Central. I work in a support role for Jisc, and we use Ebook Central to host our collection of e-books for FE. I created several Bookshelves to divide our collection into subject and qualification areas, but was disappointed to learn that I would not be able to share these with different organisations, I could only share them within Jisc. This is disappointing because it would be a fantastic support mechanism for Jisc's librarian members in the UK. Our members often don't have the time to create these Bookshelves themselves, and therefore this great tool…

  3. Automatically email weekly usage summary

    Our institution is moving towards Power BI to live present our data. Therefore we need a way to export that data from ProQuest in a format that can be identified and harvested by other Microsoft systems. An Excel spreadsheet attached to an email might be able to do this with Flow

  4. Offer KBART to customers

    It would be great if customers could get KBART of their holdings. It would help in maintaining collections in discovery systems.

  5. Add Readership Level to DDA profiling

    We would like to be able to profile by readership level, so that it is easy to filter out non-academic content which we do not want to acquire.

  6. Add print pdf button to Profile in LibCentral

    Profiles are managed by only a few staff -- myself and 2 others. Profiles are changed at least yearly in our institution. I would like to be able to provide a current copy of a librarian's profile(s) so that they can review them and tell me what changes they would like. A pdf print button would be nice to enable this action and would provide a nice clean copy.

  7. Change page colour

    Ability to change page colour to a more muted one, as plain white is hard on the eye over a long period, this function is already in many other digital readers.

  8. Ebook Central license upgrade pricing relates to historical spend

    When upgrading to an unlimited license, it should be taken into account when the institution has previously paid for multiple 1 or 3 user licenses.

    In these cases the institution should be invoiced for the difference between the total spend to date on licenses for that title, rather than the current model of the difference between the unlimited user license and the cost of a single 1 or 3 user license.

  9. Ability to sign up for notification when an ebook is available again, especially for one user titles.

    One user ebooks should allow users to sign up for notification when an ebook is available again on the platform. Useful tool especially for the academic institution that uses the text in the curriculum as recommended reading where we know demand is high.

  10. Date title added to DDA

    Ability to see when a title was added to a DDA or list in LibCentral. The current 'Date added' column in LibCentral referring to when the title was added to the platform is confusing and not of real use. That Date Added field would be better to show when the title was added to the list or DDA.

  11. Enable users to return books using the return to library function in adobe digital editions

    It would be great if users could return books when they were done with them, instead of waiting to the end of the loan period, enabling other users access them sooner.

  12. Bulk update Book Level Permissions for a set of owned ebooks

    We would like to have the ability to run a job to bulk update/change the Download Days and Online Reader Loan Days in the Book Level Permissions parameters for a list of owned ebooks. Ideally, this would be for both making initial changes to the individual book permissions and for reverting the permissions back to the default general settings.
