  2. Choice of which List to send iFound orders to, rather than only 'iFound List'

    When submitting an iFound order, currently the user can only add it to their 'iFound List'. It would be useful to be able to pick which List to send the iFound order to, as it saves the time of currently spent going into the iFound List and then moving the order to the chosen List/Shopping cart

  6. 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.

  7. eBook licence display

    Oasis already displays the licence types for e-books, so perhaps they could just change the current statement from “Download and online” to:

    “Full download and online” for e-books which can be downloaded in full and “Partial download and online” for e-books which are only licenced for partial download

  8. ability to select multiple subject classification ranges

    I would like to add multiple classifications into one search (see screenshot). But it seems like if I add one, then click on "select classification" it just erases the previous selection.

    For example, I'd like to make multiple selections for an ongoing project. (Sort of like I can make multiple selections for Readership Level.)

    For this project, I need to keep up with new books in many related LC subjects:
    T174
    TL581
    TL790
    TL794 (for the TLs, a range would be okay)
    HD9711
    QB500
    KNQ3469

    Is this possible? If so, how do I do that? I know I can create…

  9. Automatically populate order info fields depending on format

    If a selector picks an ebook, we would like certain order info fields populated in the same way, e.g. Location: Online Resources; Loan Type Reference; and Sequence: Electronic Books. Most print books are also treated the same way, e.g. Location: University Library, so it would be helpful if these fields could be populated automatically. This would reduce work for selectors and reduce user errors and subsequent queries for ProQuest and for Library Procurement staff, e.g. when a selector picks an ebook and says it is for 4 week loan.

  10. Curated by Proquest Collections

    I just saw the Curated by ProQuest collections and like the direction this is taking, however would like to see more information and details about the selection process included in Oasis with the collection information. How are titles not only evaluated for inclusion, but what criteria might result in a title not being found in the collection? In addition, who are the selectors evaluating these materials? What expertise or identities might they hold that help curate such a collection? Are there ways for the community to suggest titles to add to these collections?

  11. Display an Edition column in the results page

    It would be really useful and time-saving to spot at first glance the edition of a book in a column besides 'Action', 'Publisher', 'Copyright year', 'LC classification', 'QTY', 'GBP'. In fact the edition is one of the ESSENTIAL criteria to check when purchasing a title and it would be great to identify this info immediately and have the possibility to compare different editions on the same screen.

  12. Leisure Reading Granularity and Auto Approval for Academic Libraries

    Academic libraries struggle to create leisure reading collections for undergraduate students. We'd like to see more from Oasis in helping us shift these over to auto approval plans that take advantage of the traditional print runs of these materials (particularly graphic novels) and assist in building hands off products that solves these issues.

  13. Fund code tree/sub-directory

    Would like the ability to also assign fund sub-codes to orders. For example, select a faculty as the main fund, then choose from a list of program sub-codes.

  15. Allow a selector to retract an order sent to ratifier (From Lakeland College in CAN)

    Twice in recent months, customers have asked to be able to recant or retract an order a selector sent to a ratifier.

  16. Create a 'date created' field to the My Lists page for sorting

    It would be useful to have a 'date created' (or 'date modified') field in the My Lists page, so that it can be sorted by most recent list. Alphabetical order does not help to identify new/old lists that could then be deleted.

  17. Mobile Version of OASIS

    Are there any plans to create a mobile version of OASIS for other devices but computers/laptops? It is not possible to even update one's shopping cart and send titles to acquisitions via iPhone or similar devices. Would be highly appreciated.

  18. MARC data: Unique identifier for each copy

    When multiple copies of the same title are ordered (either ordered at the same time, or perhaps a 2nd copy ordered a few months after the 1st), we'd like each copy to have a different unique identification number. Currently, the identifier appears to be on the bib record level, so each copy has the same number. This causes issues when we import MARC records into our system (OCLC WorldShare Management Services) because the system thinks each additional copy is a duplicate/redundant import of the same item and rejects all but the first copy. Having a different identifier for each copy…

  19. Sort on date and time that a record is added to my selection list

    Currently, it seems we can sort or limit by date, but not time added. When working on long lists it is handy to be able to see what was most recently added.
