  1. Put subject facets in alphabetical order and collapsed

    Current facet choices for subjects is frustrating. Instead of listing them in a drop down menu in popularity order, it would be more helpful in alphabetical order. Collapse all the facets that start with the same word and have a drill down from that word.

  2. Navigate back to results lists when previewing

    Include a way to return to the results list when you are previewing a book. Currently the only way back is to use your browser back button, and then you see a back to results list.

  3. Separation of labeling of purchased eBooks and titles available via the STL

    A separation of the labeling of purchased eBooks and eBooks that are entered under "Non-Mediated STL" with a price limit. All titles whose STL is below the price limit are labeled as "Available". This is also the case for purchased eBooks. A separation would be beneficial for users: e.g. puchased or owned eBook for purchased titles; "Available" for STL.

  4. Provide a way to suppress the entire "Book Status" area from the "Refine Your Search" menu. We don't use this area, so it confuses users

    Please provide a way to suppress the entire "Book Status" area from the "Refine Your Search" menu. We don't use this area (we don't have an ILS, use courses reserves, or DDA), so it confuses users.

    Thank you!

  5. Translation Tool

    A translation tool would be really usefull, many customer have low usage of the platform because most of the text are in english.

  6. When consortia settings override local settings, make it obvious in LibCentral

    If our consortia has implemented settings for ebook download day limits, they override our local settings. However, it is not clear in LibCentral that this override is happening. Could Ex Libris please, in LibCentral, make it clear when our consortia have put in download limits settings and when they are overriding our local settings?

  8. Enable subject-based activation of Open Access Collection titles

    The full Open Access Collection may not be relevant for an institution's patrons. It would be good if you could do a subject-based activation of only PARTS of the collection, in place of the entire collection. Currently you have to do exactly that and then deselect topics or single titles afterwards - which is rather cumbersome.

  9. Alphabetize Bookshelves

    I have multiple bookshelves - is there a way to sort the names of the bookshelves alphabetically? If so, can it happen even if we re-name a bookshelf? Thank you for taking feedback from your users!

  10. Change holdings display when a Library holds a 3 user and unlimited user copies of same title

    When a Library holds a 3 user ebook copy and an unlimited user copy, if you search for the title and access it, ProQuest shows you have access to only the 3 user copy. It would be better if it showed we have unlimited access

  11. It would be helpful if there was a way to download just the reader's highlights/annotations of a certain text.

    It would be helpful if there was a way to download just the reader's highlights/annotations of a certain text. Not the whole chapter or book, but just the highlights portions that the reader has selected. Similar to the feature available in Kindle and other eReaders. This allows the reader to download/print only their annotations which can be helpful for academic writing, etc.

  12. Enable a "select all" for Patron Requests

    It would be a time saver if we could "select all" from the Patron Requests list. Currently each box must be checked individually, which is a time consuming process.

  13. Allow use of Waitlist for those who have auto-upgrades in place

    Please develop the capability to enable the WaitList feature for specific titles for those libraries who have auto-upgrade enabled. This is an important feature for some titles being used for courses.

  14. Set number of turnaways before ebook licence upgraded

    It would be useful to be able to set a minimum number of turnaways (ideally from unique users) before an ebook licence is automatically upgraded or additional licences purchased.

    For turnaway alerts, we would like to be able to see how many of the turnaways are unique users.

  16. Please can Russian/Ukraian be added to the language settings?

    Currently Russian/Ukrainian is not a alternative choice, due to the recent conflict, our college has had a high intake of learners, it would be extremely useful to hv this additional language added to eBook central

  17. Fix misleading Extended Access upgrade mediation steps

    In extended access 3-user/1-user Turnaway Handling it states that:

    Step2: Upgrade price limit - YES - (Books above this price will be mediated)

    By setting a price limit, we are stating that if the difference between a 1U and a 3U is above the ceiling set, the book should mediate. This not the case - if a general setting for autopurchases has been set, then instead of mediating the system will buy a new 1U licence (leaving you with paying for 3x1U, instead of the expected 1U + EA difference to 3U) (up to your existing copy limit)

  18. Enable linking to a particular point on a page

    When a chapter or other section of a book does not start at the top of a page, a link to that page may confuse readers who cannot immediately see the portion of text they have been asked to read. it would be great if links could also be made to the beginnings of chapters/sections; alternatively, it would be good to create links to custom-made anchors.

  20. Show all lists/profiles ebook is listed in

    Ebooks should show all of the lists/profiles they have been added to and if we are removing it from one list we should have the option to remove from multiple lists.
