  2. Improve design of Customization Manager for Shared Server Sites

    Because a user selects a site in the Home ribbon, it is not clear that tabs and configurations made for Z39.50, Notification Templates Server Addons and DSP apply to all sites.

    This used to be more clear when these options were available at the Ribbon level.

    It would also be helpful to remove the ILL selection option from the Home ribbon for Shared Server installations to avoid confusion when editing key and table entries.

  3. Deliver accessible PDFs via Odyssey--i.e. run PDFs through software to OCR before delivery

    Our campus wants us to deliver accessible PDFs for faculty who post files online for classes. Many libraries scan as images and deliver via Odyssey as part of the scanning process. They don't have opportunity to OCR files before delivery.

  4. Do not move completed requests to Cancelled by ILL Staff when disavowing users

    When a user is disavowed, it makes sense to cancel all outstanding requests so that they are not processed. It does not make sense to move completed requests (in queues Request Finished or Delivered to Web) to Cancelled by ILL Staff. This skews statistics.

  5. Have Chrome (or FireFox) be the ILLiad default browser

    Several of our library's databases don't play nice with IE anymore, so when searching for an article while in ILLiad, we have to cut and paste the link into another browser before we can continue the search. This would (hopefully) be eliminated if IE were not the default browser.

  6. Enable an end of semester due date change function

    It would be great if I could, through the Customization Manager or the client, set a Due Date Override so that I could make everything due before the end of the semester for specific patron groups (Undergraduates go far away over winter break and don't give their stuff back, but Staff are here year round)

  7. Improvement to Borrowing Turnaround Times Report

    Currently, the report is generated with Articles, Loans, Overall, and Overall w/ Manually Processed tabs. The Articles, Loans, and Overall tabs are generated with the data of transactions that are automatically processed. What we need is a way to generate this same report with all of the articles regardless of automatic or manual processing (same with loans). With this data being lumped into the Overall w/ Manually Processed tab it is unhelpful when trying to discover total articles or loan turnaround times (not both together).

    What is most desired is a way to decide if the report is generated with…

  8. Warning re: Multiple Pieces in Web Circ

    Add a prompt or warning when an item which has multiple pieces is updated to Mark Returned in Web Circ so that staff are alerted to the fact that more than one items should be returned with that request.

  9. Easy Article Request Submitting for Users using DOI or PMID in ILLiad Web Client

    If a user has a PMID or DOI they could insert that number or URL into a field when requesting an article. Once the number/URL is in the correct field it would automatically fill in all the needed citation information so they do not have to. A users that may not know how to use the automated database search and fill ILLiad request may like this feature. Also the user that has many request that need to be placed.

  10. Save some user demographic info with the request for reporting/statistics.

    Store demographics (ie, non personally identifying information, such as major or department) associated with a user request, to the request, not just the user.

    This would allow us to know better understand ‘how many requests were submitted by BIOLOGY majors’ in a given period of time vs. having those BIOLOGY requests migrate to a new major when USERS change major or vice versa.

  11. More ItemInfo and UserInfo fields

    Consider increasing the number of ItemInfo and UserInfo fields to more than 5 each. We have already used up all of the ItemInfo fields and have had to re-purpose existing fields to collect the additional information we need in our borrowing requests.

  12. Option to disable borrowing overdue notices on closed days

    It would be helpful if libraries could choose to suppress sending borrowing overdue notices to patrons on days when the library and/or ILL office is closed. We do not check for ILL returns on Saturdays or Sundays, and on Monday morning we backdate everything returned over the weekend to Friday. However, patrons are regularly annoyed/alarmed to receive an overdue notice on Saturday or Sunday when they've already returned the item. We do indicate that this is nothing to worry about in our email template, but not everyone reads the entire email, unfortunately.

  13. In-library use option for checking-out and checking-in items in Web Circ

    Could you provide a Web Circ option for checking-out and checking-in in-library use items multiple times for a patron? Currently, we don't have an electronic means of tracking when an in-library use item has been removed from our ILL pick up shelf or is being consulted by our patrons.

  14. Add Preferred Name Fields in the ILLiad Patron Record

    Currently ILLiad has Last Name and First Name fields in the patron record, but other databases on our campus, including our ILS, have the additional fields of Preferred First Name, Preferred Middle Name, and Preferred Last Name. It would be great if ILLiad would add these fields.

  15. Allow Request Notes to be Edited

    I often need to delete notes I have just added to a request because I realize that there is a typo or I want to add to the note. It would be very helpful to be able to just edit the existing note rather than having to delete it and add a new note.

  16. Extend database field length for ISSN

    Extend the max field length for the ISSN/ISBN field beyond 20 Characters. Users sometimes copy/paste an ISBN with a prefix (e.g. ISBN: 1234567891234). If they do that with a 13-digit ISBN, the last digits are cut off.

  17. Remove trim function from ILLiad web password login

    When users log into ILLiad web form to make requests or manage their Illiad account, the ILLiad.dll is trimming spaces from the beginning and end of the password entered. Through LDAP we use our campus Active Directory credentials to let users log into ILLiad. Our campus now has active directory password requirements of including a space (to create a pass phrase). Some users are choosing to put the space at the beginning or end of their password, and because ILLiad is trimming spaces, they cannot log into ILLiad. I don't think ILLiad should be altering passwords entered by the patrons…

  19. Add Get It Now and Publishers Web

    As a part of our current workflow, we compare the cost of the copyright fee, Get It Now and Reprints Desk. Release 9.1 will allow staff to compare the cost of the copyright fee and Reprints Desk. Adding the capability to compare all costs (Reprints Desk, Get it Now, publishers) will allow staff to make better use of ILLiad 9.1 decision support pipeline.

  20. Enable credit card payments in ILLiad

    I noticed that Aeon can accommodate credit card payments. For our purposes it would be great if ILLiad do the same. We have a home grown tool that allows individuals and companies not affiliated with our institution or another academic institution to place requests for copies of articles or to borrow books. We facilitate these transactions via web forms and credit card payment through cybersource (a 3rd party secure payment system). Essentially, we would like to be able to manage these types of requests in ILLiad.
