  1. 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.

  2. DDA and non-linear e-books in OCLC collection manager

    We have a DDA with ProQuest and an autofeed for ProQuest content in OCLC collection manager. It occured to us that when the credits points of a non-linear book are spent before the 325 days of usage have been reached and the publication is temporarily not available the title remains visible in OCLC discovery as 'purchased'. Ideally the title should be migrated from the 'purchased' to the 'DDA' collection during the time the title is not available, and moved back to the purchased collection as soon as new 'credit points' have been assigned

  3. Reference to purchased titles in mediated extened access process

    For the extended access at 1U and 3U we would like to use the mediated process, but here the user is not informed that the title is actually already purchased and therefore moderated.
    We would like to refer to the purchased/owned title before or during the moderating request.

  5. Export of Librarian Comments

    It would be great to be able to export the Librarian comments in an CSV file. It would help librarians to analyse the comments and to communicate to stakeholders, for e.g. why DDA titles got rejected.

  6. Customizable Purchase Hierarchy

    We would like the ability to customize our autopurchase hierarchy, because our preference of Access Model does not match the Purchase Hierarchy for Ebook Central

    Also, we require the ability to exclude select Access Models so they are never purchased.

  7. Message field of request form should not be an optional

    Currently the message field on a request form for mediated-DDA is optional but many administrators want users to put comments. So I request administrators can select it's optional or mandatory.

  8. Ability to vary settings on DDA Profiles (e.g. STL on some profiles, straight to purchase on others) aka "Differentiated DDA"

    The option to have different settings for different profiles e.g. by purchase type, by subject etc.

    The ability to select lists of titles to be Autopurchased automatically when enabled for DDA.

    aka ("Differentiated DDA")

  9. Text customize in multiple languages

    Currently we can put only one type of customized text for each field. We need a functionality to put text by every language so that the appropriate customized text would be displayed if any languages are selected.
