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.
Melissa Belvadi commented
As an academic library with a very modest monograph budget and small staff, this is very important to us as we can't afford either the time to manually filter what comes through our DDA/ATO profile, nor can we afford to have patrons autopurchase non-academic materials into our collection.
Nathaniel Pockras commented
This might be useful. I wouldn't use academic/nonacademic because of the size of the site (I foresee lots of errors occurring when applying settings to more than 1.3 million ebooks), but whether something's a textbook ought to be easy to ascertain, and I'd like to exclude textbooks.
Agreed, this should be a priority. Perhaps a textbook category would suffice, but level would also be good.
Chloe Dobson commented
I view this as an essential part of the profiling process and strongly feel this should be a priority development. This feature has been on the cards for a while now and I am surprised it hasn't been introduced.

It would be helpful if we could add more than one vote for ideas in which you believe strongly
