  1. To generate the reports to get the titles by the ‘disciplines’ like Arts & Humanities

    Hi,

    Good Morning!

    We are not able to get to the discipline level when generate any of the reports. Example: Arts & Humanities. You do have fund codes, subject headings like Science, Medicine, Pharmacy etc. and LC call numbers in certain reports but we need get the titles grouped under a particular discipline.

    Please add the functionality to generate the reports to get the titles by the ‘disciplines’.

    Thanks!
    Have a nice day ahead!
    With best wishes

  3. Additional turnaways information requested

    With auto-upgrades, if an eBook is only available as a 1-user license and is in use please could it be reported as a turnaway if someone else tries to access it. Not everyone will fill in the mediated title request so I don't think we are getting a true picture of how often people can't access 1-user titles and we have quite a lot of these. It would also help make COUNTER reporting of turnaways more accurate I would guess? Thanks

  4. Real-time turn away alerts/reports

    Kathleen wants this so she can go in and upgrade immediately. It’s not as helpful to see a turn away report in hind-sight

    Thank you for your feedback on our turnaway alerting.  This fall, in addition to our current instant book-level turnaway email alert, we will be adding summarized turnaway email alerts (including a csv attachment) for daily, weekly and monthly turnaways. These alerts will be available for you to sign-up to receive on the Alerts page in LibCentral.  As we are starting development, we'd love to hear any additional feedback you may have on this enhancement.  We appreciate your engagement!  Best, Rayna Stowe, Product Owner (LibCentral)

  5. Add country data to the Usage Report export

    As an international membership organisation it is important for us to record which titles are being accessed from where. Adding a country column to the Usage Report would do this - if that's possible?

  6. Add document type 'Textbook' to available search refinements, and within usage reports.

    It would be great to be able to quickly refine the owned content list to textbooks only, and from there extract a spreadsheet of your textbook model titles with relevant information. It would also be great to report on textbook model usage separately and quickly.

  7. Develop a possibility to get necessary usage data automatically through REST API.

    We would like to reduce a manual work of downloading usage data every week for our internal reporting system Tableau. So we suggest developing API (or even xAPI) service for getting data automatically.

  8. Add access permission to Expenditure and Usage Report

    For tracking costs (of user groups defined by access permissions sets) a additional column of the user access permission in the reports (exports) would be helpful.

  9. Title Report delivery

    Libcentral's Title Report can only be delivered by email, even if it's a tiny report with ten or a dozen lines. It would be nice if a download option were provided, as with the Usage Report.
