  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Add the ability to increase font size in the staff view for older folks or the visually impaired.

    The current font size in the staff interface is not adjustable within the application. It would be useful and decrease eye strain is the font could be adjusted to user preferences, Regular, Large or Extra Large maybe?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Include more high contrast skins in ILLiad

    Customer requests more high contrast skin options for ILLiad. "in general if there is a dark background a light font is better. Dark on dark is difficult to read." More details and pictures in ticket 8724.

  9. Add “Accessibility Required” or “OCR Required” to the checklist under Accept Alternate Edition.

    We are seeing an increasing demand for high quality OCR’d copies for accessibility needs. We need an easy way to include this information with the request when it is sent to a potential lender.

  10. Address validation for shipping

    UPS and FedEx will charge for address corrections. https://www.ups.com/us/en/help-center/sri/glo-addcorr.page
    https://www.franklinparcel.com/what-is-an-address-correction-charge/

    Would be nice to have an address validation app to check addresses and flag incorrect addresses for review before shipping to save on address correction

  11. Eliminate extranneous shipping labels for multi-piece loan transactions

    For Lending Loan Shipping Labels, and Borrowing Return Shipping Labels, we only need ONE shipping label per transaction. As is, if we ship a 4-volume set under one transaction number, we get 4 shipping labels. This means that each time we print, we either have to discard extra labels, or take the time to delete the extra labels from the print document.

  12. Allow staff to mass email patrons based on status or other criteria

    Allow staff to send an email to ILLiad users based on status or department, etc so that they could send out one email to many people to announce updates, new services, request feedback/survey. Ex. I am going to install ILLiad 9 on Thursday and we will be down for 3 hours. I'd like to email all of the Faculty to let them know and also warn them that they will need to change password upon login.

  13. Limit Number of Library Symbols added to the Lending String with Custom Holdings

    Add ability to customize the number of libraries that are added when using Custom Holding to create the Lending String.

    Many libraries want to create shorter lending strings (less than fifteen) so that requests are not out for potentially weeks before being filled. Currently, in order to create shorter lending strings you have to manually add library symbols or remove library symbols after using custom holdings to auto-generate a string.

  14. Ability to suspend patron from loans while still allowing requests for article copies.

    We have users who cannot be trusted with book loans, but I still want them to be able to request articles. I'd like a way to block loans but not articles.

  16. Provide automated reminder notice when borrowed item is not picked up

    We would like to send an automated email to patrons an email reminder to pick up borrowed material if they have not checked out the material a few days after getting initial notification.

  17. When manually routing a request to a new status, display the name of the new status in the confirmation message

    In the "Confirm Manually Change Status" box, the only message is "Are you sure you want to manually change this status?"

    If this included the new status (eg "Are you sure you want to manually change the status of this request to ____?") this would improve the confirmation process and help to catch when staff accidentally click on the wrong status in the dropdown menu.

  19. Flag or add a notification of some sort sort to identify stale requests.

    It would be nice to be able to see requests that are sitting around in queues when they should have moved on or some action might need to be taken by staff. An example would be items that have been sitting in Request Sent for too long with patrons not getting their materials in a timely fashion.
