Display accurate and genuinely ‘live’ stock updates on Oasis, with feeds from the suppliers that are actually used to source the stock. The current ‘in stock’ status is misleading as it doesn't mean an item is immediately available.24 votes
This work was completed with recent enhancements to the OASIS UI to display “In stock with supplier” and “Order requests accepted”
The Quick Search should work as well as the Advanced Search, and both need better ranking of results so that the titles I expect to see are at the top of the page.24 votes
Other suppliers clearly show what the cost price, VAT and total price (including discount) are for ebooks. It would be good if OASIS could do the same.20 votes
We have completed the work to show ebook discounts in OASIS with the EBC discounting tool that is now available in the Checkout and Authorize Orders screens.
Instead of combining all the item information in one long line. Readability would improve by organizing and separating each component with a heading and/or its own line. For example:
I would like to filter out titles that are not available for sale in my region.12 votes
It's a waste of time changing the 0s to 1s.10 votes
Currently the inclusion of basic punctuation such as colons, apostrophes, semicolons, etc. often cause searches to fail. This is especially true when copying titles from a web page, and is even worse when using the Quick Search box. If the searches just ignored all punctuation and non-alphabetic characters, this would not be a problem.8 votes
With the exception of 4 operators, the search will ignore punctuation now in both advanced and quick search.
1 - Double Quotes will allow an exact text search.
2 - plus sign will allow forced inclusion
3 - minus sign will allow forced exclusion
4 - asterisk will allow truncation
I would like access to curated subject lists and other types of recommended title lists, like best sellers, award winners, or even titles that will be pulled off Academic Complete.7 votes
This feature is now live. Click on the link under the “Review Titles” navigation tab. We plan on adding more lists on a regular basis
All search boxes should support Boolean AND, OR, and NOT, as well as truncation. Currently there is no way to exclude words from a search, or combine synonyms or alternate forms of a word into a single search.6 votes
Curated topic lists are only accessible to OASIS users or LibCentral users. We would like the lists to be available to non-users so that for example, our Academics could access current lists. Can the lists be posted somewhere more accessible? You are likely to get more orders when they are more visible as Academics are more likely to add the titles to reading lists.3 votescompleted · 3 comments · Sources for additional media and titles · Flag idea as inappropriate… · Admin →
My primary purpose of viewing "alternate prints" is to check availability. Currently, I can only view the alternate print's availability status after selecting it. It would be helpful if that availability was listed with the rest of the information: ISBN/Publisher/Year/Binding/Price/Currency.3 votes
As part of the new Search results UI released in March, we now include the title availability within the format drop-down, to allow side-by-side comparison of available print formats.
Could you please add the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classification in the advanced search options? Since that classification is already in the records, it could be nice to see it in the classification drop down menu.2 votes
The NLM class "W" can now be accessed from the LC class schedule.
Please tag all of the 3rd party publisher content with the DRM-free label, in the same way that DRM-free Ebook Central ebooks are tagged.2 votes
This was included as part of the new search interface--wherever editor information is available in the author metadata. We hope to expand it even further down the road.
