  1. Update copyright fees for items under the annual copyright license as well

    So that a site can say "it would have cost us $X if we hadn't used the annual copyright license"

  4. Interact with purchasing model to cover electronic course packs

    As a staff user I want Ares to allows users to pay for access to electronic reserve items to offset the copyright costs.

    There is no way for a user to request a rescan within Ares and allow for staff to correct it within the system.

  6. instructor ability to export more than one citation at a time from web

    They would like for the instructor to be able to export more than one item citation .ris file at a time - perhaps something like a checkbox could be available in the items grid on the course details page where the instructor could check the items to export, and then click on an export button.

  7. Option to multi-select courses and open them from search results

  8. Allow staff to decide if copyright information clones with request

    If there is some sort of perpetual copyright license (the World Health Organization says their stuff can be used forever), it is helpful to keep that data when cloning a request.

  9. Tracking entries reflect more accurately if the system or staff user initiated that status change

    In some cases moving an item to one status immediately moves it to the next applicable status. That tracking entry has the staff username versus a "system" username.

  12. Add a status line to the Ares main menu to be able to display error messages

    If a user is returned to the main menu because of an error, there is no way to explain why.

  14. Allow sites to remove edit option from left column for instructor web

    There is a left most column that says view, download, edit. That column is not customizable and some sites don't allow instructors to edit the items.

  17. Allow for more date parameters for reports

    Most sites would like reports by semester or year and not necessarily by month.

  19. Enhance course cross-listing to include more course info and ExternalCourseIDs

    Currently, course cross listing only shows a name and is accessible by students searching for that cross listed course number/name and finding it under the other name. It's not clear to the student that both courses are the same.

  20. Filter reports by processing unit

    Do you also want to separate stats by pick up location or only the processing location?
