  2. Batch deleting patron accounts

    It would be very useful to be able to batch delete patron accounts, rather than having to do them one by one. It would save a lot of time if you could input a list of names or email addresses and delete them all in one go.

  3. Add print pdf button to Profile in LibCentral

    Profiles are managed by only a few staff -- myself and 2 others. Profiles are changed at least yearly in our institution. I would like to be able to provide a current copy of a librarian's profile(s) so that they can review them and tell me what changes they would like. A pdf print button would be nice to enable this action and would provide a nice clean copy.

  4. Remote Access Requiring Periodic Re-Authentication from Institution IPs

    Once a user creates an account from the instituions IPs, they can use those login credentials when not on our institutional IP's. We would like an automatic way to manage the expiration dates of these accounts via the platform where proquest would require users to come back on an institutions IPs periodically to re-authenicate their account, similar to what Clarivate does with their Web of Science: Anytime/Anywhere Access (see: https://support.clarivate.com/ScientificandAcademicResearch/s/article/Web-of-Science-AnytimeAnywhere-Access-or-Roaming?language=en_US)

    Note: this is the same issue that librarian in a different library has

  9. Notifications when a patron is blocked

    We recently had an academic blocked by PEC because he downloaded in excess of 100 titles in a month. We were not aware of any blocks in Proquest, and neither the library nor the patron were notified of the block; his access was just limited without explanation. We were informed that Proquest would remove the block at the end of the month, but that was not communicated either. A notification system needs to be in place if patron access is going to be affected.

    For about 6 months, we encountered an issue with the users account requests. Even if access to our EBC account is proxyfied, we receive requests from users from all over the world. We want to receive requests only from users who are authentified on our library resources webpage.

  12. Information about titles that have been added to bookshelves by students before the titles are withdrawn from Ebook Central subscriptions

    When titles are withdrawn from our Ebook Central subscription, we have no way to knowing if any of the titles that we will lose access to have been added to a student bookshelf (where notes and chapters have been highlighted). Students also do not get notified and may lose access to the title with all highlighting / notes accompanying the text it relates to. I would like to propose that users get some form of notification prior to withdrawal if the title is part of their personal bookshelf to give them an opportunity to save the notes and also that…

  13. Users do not need to put names and email addresses again in request form

    Users login their accounts to request a book so names and email addressed should be automatically put in the form to save their time.

  14. Show Price to Patron

    Currently if "show price to patron" option is activate, the users can see prices for all access models. I want to request only the price of SUPO can be shown.
