  1. Keeping the search string in the search box until done, with a 'clear search' option

    Keep the wording of a search in the search box for ease of editing and reminding oneself of the search. Also suggest a 'Clear search' button for when done.

    Alternatively, make the 'Edit search' option bigger, clearer and easier to find. It took me a while to even notice it was there, I had to keep typing out my searches again and again.

    Thanks.

    To promote ease of use in searching and improved report results when filtering by publisher, please look in your library’s LibCentral Acquisition Catalog Advanced Search, Publisher filter to see a more refined, cleaner list of publishers to search by. This same list carries over to the Title, Usage and Expenditure report publisher filter search. To add additional benefit to the reports, expect to see the exact publisher name in the reports display, allowing for better results when analyzing the report output.

  3. Add Price Limit for Extended Access Upgrades

    We need a way to control the automatic Upgrade purchase via Extended Access if the cost over a specified amount.

    Thanks to everyone who voted on this great idea! This will be released afternoon (EST) tomorrow (Sept. 10). We are really excited to offer more ways for you to manage your budget, prevent turnaways & upgrade to your preferred access model, if a book is requested via mediation. Please see the Access Permissions, Mediated Requests & Expenditure Report documentation, which gives more details about this new feature.

  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

    Dear Idea Exchange Members,

    Thank you for contributing in Ebook Central’s idea exchange! We took one of the ideas and ran with it – DDA shut off, now named DDA Budget Tracker is available in LibCentral. This new smart tool will help reduce unpredictability in DDA spending and will ease your concerns of DDA overspending.

    On behalf of ProQuest Ebook Central team, we appreciate your valuable input on priorities for Ebook Central improvements.​

  6. Book viewing

    I would like to be able to view multiple pages at once, either by side by side or in a quad box.

    Our new ebook reader, launched in September 2019, allows side/side page viewing within the reader.

  7. order confirmation

    two requests:
    1. one of our customer wants to customise an order confirmation adding the Doc ID of the purchased ebook. I have an older list (attached) of variables for at least order confirmations. Can you give me the variable for the doc ID, this is missing in he list (should be something like
    ${content.docID}
    ${book.ebookID}
    ${book.ID}
    ${book.docID}

    This Idea has been implemented! Please note that all order confirmation emails from LibCentral will now include the Document ID. Thanks for the great ideas and engagement!

  8. More granular zoom settings in reader

    The default zoom in the reader is too large, but when zooming out just once, it becomes too small. It would be nice to have more granular zoom settings (or to be able to select a percentage or from a slider?).
