  1. Patrons are notified when their 5 minute browse expires; Patrons are notified when a book is available

    Over-the-license-limit-ebook access
    ProQuest allows patrons to use an e-book with limited licenses to have 5 minutes of access even if no license is available. I would suggest that such users get a notification that they have "limited" access to the book and a count-down click to show them the remaining access. If a license becomes available during those 5 minutes, a pop-up window can appear to inform them that they now have full access. If the five minutes are up, the patron should have the option to enter an e-mail or cell phone number to receive notification when a license…

  2. Daily turnaway email option

  3. Real-time turn away alerts/reports

    Kathleen wants this so she can go in and upgrade immediately. It’s not as helpful to see a turn away report in hind-sight

    Thank you for your feedback on our turnaway alerting.  This fall, in addition to our current instant book-level turnaway email alert, we will be adding summarized turnaway email alerts (including a csv attachment) for daily, weekly and monthly turnaways. These alerts will be available for you to sign-up to receive on the Alerts page in LibCentral.  As we are starting development, we'd love to hear any additional feedback you may have on this enhancement.  We appreciate your engagement!  Best, Rayna Stowe, Product Owner (LibCentral)
