  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Export citations for "EndNote/Citavi" are in difficult to use format

    Exporting citations for "EndNote/Citavi" appear to normally result in file download named:

    biblioExport.action

    The customer reports (and I confirmed) that doesn't open seamlessly with Chrome on a Mac with EndNote.

    Customer asks, your KB article says the files "should be downloaded as a .action or .ris file into your Downloads folder". Why not always one or the other (preferably .ris files)?

  7. Access Member holdings first

    As a member library of one or more Consortia, we want the option to give the patron access to the copy of the title that I own, when my holdings overlap with a parent consortium.

  8. Would like to see an index/thesaurus in the advanced search section.

    The detailed index/thesaurus would allow me to search more specifically by the criteria ProQuest uses in the indexing process--for example, if there are specific subject classifications. I would want to be able to either start typing a word in the index search bar to find a term or be able to browse alphabetically, then click on the term, which would either hyperlink to records containing that term or be able to add the term to the advanced search.

  9. Ebook Central Turnaway alert at book level

    Allow Turnaway alerts to be disabled in the Full Record View for individual titles (e.g., in Edit Book Level Permissions area). If a title is no longer available for sale on the platform and the library has made other arrangements to provide access, the Turnaway alerts are no longer used.
