  1. Fix the PDF Conversion Failures for resends

    When a patron has looked at an unmediated article receive and notifies us of an incorrect item being received the request gets locked and asking for a resend becomes impossible. Each time we get a PDF Conversion Failed. Please allow patron to view their articles and request a resend of an incorrectly or poorly scanned item.

  3. Improve normalization of journal titles for copyright searching and counting against rule of five

    Some titles have carriage returns, trailing spaces, and abbreviations that make the rule of five not match. Also, journals change title throughout their run. Should the copyright query count another field like ISSN, OCLC Number, or some other field?

  4. Allow lending staff to set a document type which would modify the due date

    For videos etc. the due date is different than standard loans. When the request comes in from OCLC or any other system, we don't yet know what format it is necessarily. But when staff choose that format in the document type field, ILLiad could change the due date to a new value based on a customization key.

  5. Have OCLC search default to serials *and* internet resources by default for journals

    Many electronic journals are classified as internet resources versus a serial, so both need to be selected in a search

  7. When creating new users in the staff client, default to electronic notification options

    Currently, none of the notification check boxes are checked by default on the new user form. Staff have to remember which of the check boxes to check to set a new user to receive all electronic notifications. It would be good to have a setting that made those check boxes checked by default.

  8. Allow cloned requests to be routed

    Option 1: Add a tracking entry that is created before the routing rule is triggered so that the routing rule can reference the tracking table.

    Option 2: Create a new menu option of Clone and Route that prompts the staff user to pick the new queue.

  10. When sending ILLiad requests to Aeon, include the library name and address

    The special collections department likes to know which institution is requesting certain items.

  12. Allow ILLiad to receive a renewal request once it has been requested in ILS, so that ILLiad can request the renewal from the lending library

    If items from other libraries are checked out to users in the ILS, when that user places a renewal request, ILLiad needs to know about it so it can ask the lending library for a renewal.

  14. Allow Z39.50 searches to work with servers that don't support unicode

    Several Z39.50 servers don't support Unicode or non-ASCII characters. If the ILLiad title has those characters in it, the search returns no results. It may be necessary to replace characters with their Latin equivalent before searching.

  15. Default OpenURL journal genre to article form instead of loan form

    Most examples of OpenURL with the "journal" genre are still article requests versus a request for a loan of the entire journal. Data would not be lost if we use the article request form instead.

  17. Allow shared server installations to share a RAPID account (similar to sharing OCLC account)

    When downloading new requests, a certain site code would need to be designated as the primary site for receiving those requests. The requests could then be doled out to other ILLiad sites on the server for fulfillment and all would update that same RAPID account.

  18. API functionality include renewal requests from patrons

    The ILLiad API is great because patrons can view all their requests local and ILL in one place but this is really read only. It would be very helpful for the API to also allow for renewal requests or to support a renewal request via NCIP.

  19. Ability to remove loan information from web pages.

    Many libraries take advantage of NCIP integration with their ILS and thus manage loans (due dates and renewals) directly with their ILS, thus patrons are encouraged not to log into ILLiad web pages to perform those tasks. However, there is no easy way to remove or hide that from the web pages.

  20. Set web session timeout by patron type/status

    From customer: We have a faculty member complaining about the web session. We have it set at 10 minutes since so many of our patrons use shared/pubic workstations. Is there any way to individualize web session times by patron type?
