  1. Mapping ArchivesSpace "container profile" name to Aeon requests via the ArchivesSpace/Aeon Request Fulfillment Plugin

    The University of Southern California Libraries would like the ArchivesSpace Aeon Fulfillment Plugin to pull each container profile "name" from ArchivesSpace into new Aeon requests made via the plugin. The only value that we would like to map from the ArchivesSpace container profile record is the container profile "name" (title).

    Currently, ArchivesSpace container profile values are not listed as available options in the Aeon OpenURLMapping table.

  2. Specify a hold location in its own field for each item

    Sites could benefit from a "hold location" field in the Transactions table for each item. When the item is placed on the hold shelf, staff can designate that location (similar to choosing a table when signing a person into the reading room). That value would then display in the grid for all items on hold and would automatically clear when the item was checked back in without staff having to remember to clear it.

  3. Notification for duplicate requests submitted

    If a researcher requests something that is already on hold or in retrieval from a remote location, Aeon should alert staff to prevent duplicate paging or looking for things that are right behind them.

  5. Make user merge process more clear

    We would like to keep the option of not clearing users when merging accounts. Clicking on "merge" on a user should go to that user in the merge list.

    We would like the whole process of merging to be smoother -- it should be possible to start from any status and merge, and it should be easier to find related individuals. Also, if you click "merge" on a certain user, it should start with that user in the list of users.

    The current merge workflow is incredibly confusing.

  6. Have the Site field set based on the staff user's DBC when creating requests from an Excel

    If a staff user forgets to include the Site value when creating requests from an Excel file, the Site is set to blank and the requests are not visible to staff. It would be helpful to have the Site value automatically set based on the user's DBC in the same way it is set when single requests are created in the client.

  7. Recommendation system to suggest items to researchers based on users with the same research topic

    American Philosophical Society created a 1.0 version of a recommendation system for the Aeon web (called PAL - for People Also Liked) to show other items a researcher might want to request based on topics and requests in the system.

    This could be expanded into its own web service for recommending items.
