  3. Provide a way to suppress the entire "Book Status" area from the "Refine Your Search" menu. We don't use this area, so it confuses users

    Please provide a way to suppress the entire "Book Status" area from the "Refine Your Search" menu. We don't use this area (we don't have an ILS, use courses reserves, or DDA), so it confuses users.

    Thank you!

  4. When consortia settings override local settings, make it obvious in LibCentral

    If our consortia has implemented settings for ebook download day limits, they override our local settings. However, it is not clear in LibCentral that this override is happening. Could Ex Libris please, in LibCentral, make it clear when our consortia have put in download limits settings and when they are overriding our local settings?

  5. Alphabetize Bookshelves

    I have multiple bookshelves - is there a way to sort the names of the bookshelves alphabetically? If so, can it happen even if we re-name a bookshelf? Thank you for taking feedback from your users!

  6. Change holdings display when a Library holds a 3 user and unlimited user copies of same title

    When a Library holds a 3 user ebook copy and an unlimited user copy, if you search for the title and access it, ProQuest shows you have access to only the 3 user copy. It would be better if it showed we have unlimited access

  8. Set number of turnaways before ebook licence upgraded

    It would be useful to be able to set a minimum number of turnaways (ideally from unique users) before an ebook licence is automatically upgraded or additional licences purchased.

  9. Full MARC records in UTF-8

    MARC records in languages other than English are often garbled unless they are in UTF-8. I usually use Express MARC, but Full records included richer information are preferable. So I would like to request the release of Full MARC available in UTF-8.

  10. Enable subject-based activation of Open Access Collection titles

    The full Open Access Collection may not be relevant for an institution's patrons. It would be good if you could do a subject-based activation of only PARTS of the collection, in place of the entire collection. Currently you have to do exactly that and then deselect topics or single titles afterwards - which is rather cumbersome.

  11. It would be helpful if there was a way to download just the reader's highlights/annotations of a certain text.

    It would be helpful if there was a way to download just the reader's highlights/annotations of a certain text. Not the whole chapter or book, but just the highlights portions that the reader has selected. Similar to the feature available in Kindle and other eReaders. This allows the reader to download/print only their annotations which can be helpful for academic writing, etc.

  12. Enable a "select all" for Patron Requests

    It would be a time saver if we could "select all" from the Patron Requests list. Currently each box must be checked individually, which is a time consuming process.

  13. Allow use of Waitlist for those who have auto-upgrades in place

    Please develop the capability to enable the WaitList feature for specific titles for those libraries who have auto-upgrade enabled. This is an important feature for some titles being used for courses.

  14. Provide option to remove Ebook Central "Download Book" button

    Provide option to remove the "Download Book" button from Ebook Central UI. Clicking this button results in PQ wanting access to my Adobe Digital Editions account, which does not live on my laptop computer. I’m fairly certain Digital Editions does not live on very many computers anymore. It would be very nice if this particular download option could become either our option for display, removed, disabled, or at least moved way down to the very bottom of the page. My preference would be to have the ability to either enable/disable from the admin area. The button also should communicate that…

  15. Please can Russian/Ukraian be added to the language settings?

    Currently Russian/Ukrainian is not a alternative choice, due to the recent conflict, our college has had a high intake of learners, it would be extremely useful to hv this additional language added to eBook central

  16. Export of Patron Request List

    It would be great to be able to export the List of all items in Patron request(patron comments etc.) in an CSV file.
    It would help librarians to analyse the comments and to communicate to stakeholders

  17. Ability to turn off mediated requests at an individual title level

    It would be great to have the ability to turn off mediated requests at the individual title level when we have purchased up to our maximum number of copies. Perhaps this could be include in the Book level permissions section.

  18. Fix misleading Extended Access upgrade mediation steps

    In extended access 3-user/1-user Turnaway Handling it states that:

    Step2: Upgrade price limit - YES - (Books above this price will be mediated)

    By setting a price limit, we are stating that if the difference between a 1U and a 3U is above the ceiling set, the book should mediate. This not the case - if a general setting for autopurchases has been set, then instead of mediating the system will buy a new 1U licence (leaving you with paying for 3x1U, instead of the expected 1U + EA difference to 3U) (up to your existing copy limit)

  19. Shared bookshelf for team

    team-bookshelf - on which a team could work together. Very participant should have the oppurtunity to bookmark/unbookmark books and also to see/have the team-bookshelf in its own account. So everybody of the team could work with the same bookshelf.
