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.
This idea is still under review by the product team. We will continue to update our customers on the Idea Exchange. We appreciate your comments and votes as we evaluate and triage your great ideas! Best, Rayna

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.

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.

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
