  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
