  1. Limit search results by status

    The new Oasis interface lacks limits or facets to facilitate searching. For instance, we need to have the ability to limit search results by status to eliminate those that have a status of "in library holdings" or have another status.

  2. Oasis should have the capability to download an entire search result.

    Oasis should have the capability to download an entire search result. Currently, it appears a user can only add up to 200 records at a time to a list and then download the list. We should be able to download an entire search result without adding a small number to a list repeatedly.

  3. Change chronology of standing order items to year-month instead of month-year

    When searching for standing orders, the titles appear in multiples, one for each volume published. When sorting them by date, they are sorted alphabetically by month, with the year written second (not useful!). I suggest that the dates be written as (year)-(numerical month), so that they could sort chronologically.

  5. Add the ability for organizations with multiple ratifiers to work off of the same submission list.

    Currently we have to assign selectors to ratifiers to distribute the work and it often results in unfair distirbution or us needing to forward lists to each other. It would be really nice if we had a shared submissions list that all ratifiers could go to and work off of when placing orders.

  6. Searching for awards or review criteria in OASIS

    It would be helpful to be able to search for titles profiled in OASIS on awards or review criteria. Can a field or filter be added to enable this?

  7. Add print/copy/download limits to eBook 'Title details' tab

    Print/copy/download limits set by publishers are not visible via Oasis for eBooks hosted on Ebook Central. It would be useful to have this information available in Oasis in order to assist with making purchasing decisions. Suggested to add to the 'Title details' tab under pricing/licensing information in similar format as it displays in LibCentral. e.g. Print: 1% Copy: 1%

  8. Form on Oasis to request titles as ebooks

    Would like there to be a form on Oasis for colleagues who want to know if we can get a print title in ebook format. Or to suggest a collaboration between a small publisher and EBC so we can access their ebooks on the platform rather than self-hosting a PDF. We would also like a way to be able to view what's been requested and any progress in the process.

  9. Sort by physical book or ebook

    When working in "authorize orders" it would be helpful if there were an option added to the sort by field that was for either physical book (pbk) or ebooks. When I'm ordering pbk books I often have to download records so I will do those separate from the ebooks. Thanks!

  10. Creating an ILLiad Add-on for OASIS (similar to the one created for GOBI)

    our ILL team has asked for an add-on for OASIS, just like they have one for GOBI.

    Would it be possible for the OASIS/ProQuest team to create an add-on to use with ILLiad?

    Here’s the link to the main page explaining how to create and submit add-ons:
    https://atlas-sys.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ILLiadAddons/pages/3149447/Submitting+Addons

    What they suggest in the following link is to use an already created add-on and build on it. Since the add-on for GOBI already exists, the easiest would be for ProQuest to copy that add-on but use OASIS features instead of GOBI features. On the left-hand side of the page, you will…

  11. Talis Integration

    I would like ProQuest to work with Talis to integrate supplier information (book & ebook prices) into the Talis Aspire product. Talis Aspire has become an integral part of our ordering workflow and other book suppliers have already taken the step to integrate using an API. For us, it would create greater efficiency in stock selection as we would not need to login to multiple websites to check for prices and would almost certainly lead to us buying more books and ebooks from ProQuest.

    It would also help massively if prices shown were inclusive of VAT & discounts. This links…

  12. Add streaming video titles to OASIS

    The marketplace for ordering individual streaming video titles is confusing and diffuse, much like ebooks were several years ago. As with ebooks, we'd be inclined to order many more of these if the process of finding the titles and platforms on which they're accessible were easier.

  13. Including BIB# on order slip that is in book

    As the inclusion of the bib would be useful for cataloguing purposes, it should be fairly simple to add it to the information that is on the delivery/order slip that is inserted into a book. It would save the cataloguers having to look it up.

  14. E-Book titles - Display "Not Available" phrases in RED LETTERS

    Can you display the "Not Available: No sales rights in your region" phrase in the Title Details tab and the "Not Available" phrase in the title record, in RED LETTERS. Presently they are in black letters and hard to spot. I consider these phrases as a Status or a Cancellation, which you display in red or orange letters.

  15. Better integration of Ifound with Proquest systems

    Can the integration of Ifound be improved so that any book we order from Proquest be automatically fed into Ifound, regardless of the item being ordered via the Oasis channel.

    At the moment we have to cancel the order sent via EDI and start again via Ifound according to colleagues working in the monograph ordering team

  16. minimize Authorize Order page to view and edit multiple items at once

    The new Authorize Order page has great features that it truly needed. The only problem is that each item is huge and takes up the entire viewing page. An expand or contract option would be helpful.

  17. Order Ebook Central upgrades through OASIS

    The ability to order an Ebook Central license upgrade through OASIS. This can then follow the same workflow as any other OASIS order, with the institution being invoiced for the upgrade cost only.

    This is currently working perfectly when upgrading eBook licenses on GOBI.

  18. Allow searches across items Sent to Ratifier

    To help me more easily track what I've selected, I keep folders for these items, but it would be nice if instead of that extra step, I could easily search across those items I've sent to our Ratifier.

  19. Integrate with Choice Reviews

    Like many other libraries, we use Choice Reviews Online for title selection. Any possiblity of having a button with the option of adding the title to our OASIS cart? Right now, only Gobi is integrated with CRO.

  20. Display newer editions of a title when performing an ISBN search

    One of the limitations on OASIS is that it is not immediately obvious whether there is a newer edition of a title available. Performing a title search can be problematic especially when searching for generic titles. It is often easier to search on Amazon as they clearly identify whether a newer edition is available. It would be nice if we had another tab similar to “Alternative formats” which would allow us to check for “Alternative editions”.
