    To promote ease of use in searching and improved report results when filtering by publisher, please look in your library’s LibCentral Acquisition Catalog Advanced Search, Publisher filter to see a more refined, cleaner list of publishers to search by. This same list carries over to the Title, Usage and Expenditure report publisher filter search. To add additional benefit to the reports, expect to see the exact publisher name in the reports display, allowing for better results when analyzing the report output.

  2. DDA Auto Shut-off

    Add option to shut-off DDA program automatically once funds have been depleted.

    Dear Idea Exchange Members,

    Thank you for contributing in Ebook Central’s idea exchange! We took one of the ideas and ran with it – DDA shut off, now named DDA Budget Tracker is available in LibCentral. This new smart tool will help reduce unpredictability in DDA spending and will ease your concerns of DDA overspending.

    On behalf of ProQuest Ebook Central team, we appreciate your valuable input on priorities for Ebook Central improvements.​

  3. Book viewing

    I would like to be able to view multiple pages at once, either by side by side or in a quad box.

  4. Children's picture books display

    Picture books are usually meant to be viewed with the pages side by side. There is no way to currently look at a two page spread of books. Also the bookmark icon often covers up text and pictures. See Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert

  5. order confirmation

    two requests:
    1. one of our customer wants to customise an order confirmation adding the Doc ID of the purchased ebook. I have an older list (attached) of variables for at least order confirmations. Can you give me the variable for the doc ID, this is missing in he list (should be something like
    ${content.docID}
    ${book.ebookID}
    ${book.ID}
    ${book.docID}

  6. More granular zoom settings in reader

    The default zoom in the reader is too large, but when zooming out just once, it becomes too small. It would be nice to have more granular zoom settings (or to be able to select a percentage or from a slider?).
