  1. Automatically prevent purchasing multiple Unlimited Access copies of the same book

    Please automatically prevent purchasing multiple Unlimited Access copies of the same book.

    Also when sending removal list of titles or any other promotions to customers for possible purchase, please de-dupe this list against our holdings. I do not need to review titles that we have already purchased as UU. These lists should also include a note if a newer edition is available and whether or not the title is in our current dda pool and/or eligible for dda.

  2. Add selected titles from a list to your cart before ordering

    Currently you can only add an entire list to your cart. Our institution would like the ability to add selected titles from each list to a cart in order to place an order.

  3. Remove Non-Linear from current upgrade hierarchy; give it its own setting.

    We have auto-upgrade enabled, with the expectation that a title will upgrade from one stable limited-user model to the next: 1u->3u->UU. Currently, NL is included in the auto-upgrade hierarchy: 1u->3u->NL->UU.

    This is really inappropriate; NL is a very different sales model from the other three, since you can run out of uses. It's especially problematic if overuse of a 3u has triggered the upgrade - that indicates really heavy use, and really heavy use will run down an NL license very quickly - thus potentially replacing 3u access with no access at all. That's not an "upgrade".

    NL is, however,…
