  1. iOS app for ILLiad on iPad

    Please develop an ILLiad app for iOS on iPad. It would greatly ease some of the difficulties our workers have doing their job remotely.

  2. Electronic Delivery Utility

    Enhance EDU to allow multiple copies (using Automode) to process files from the same scanned file folder for different nvtgc sites. Currently the EDU reads through all scanned files in a folder and when more than one EDU is running it can lock the file causing errors for the other EDUs trying to process that file.

  3. Support multiple files for Illiad transactions

    We have some files that get quite large when delivering PDFs. We would like to parse these out - call them chapters or parts. unfortunately, Illiad has the restriction of a single file per TN. We would like the option of being able to upload multiple files per TN, so that when batch loading, all files with the same TN would be attached to the transaction (think TN018765a,TN018765b,TN018765c all being attached to transaction TN018765)

  4. Add an export option to the Submit Copyright Orders Screen

    Most other ILLiad screens allow exporting data to Excel. Adding the option to the Submit Copyright Orders screen so we could more easily investigate titles we're borrowing high amounts of, along with the actual current publisher fees in CCC prior to submitting the order would be very helpful

  5. Copy Layout & Grid Settings - Separate Borrowing, Doc Del, and Lending

    In the Staff Manager, please adjust the granularity of the Copy Layout & Grid Settings by Borrowing, Doc Del, and Lending. If I make major changes to the Borrowing layout, I'd like to be able to copy those changes to the relevant student employees & staff, but not overwrite their layouts in DocDel and Lending. It would be very helpful if we could indicate which layouts to change and which to retain in these different areas of ILLiad.

  6. Ability to display and update user information on a transaction/request form

    Recent issues with COVID 19 are increasing use of the "mail to address" workflow for home delivery. It would be helpful for users to be able to view their address and other user information from the request form should it need to be updated.

  7. Check OCLC Status before sending Overdues-do not send for "Returned" OCLC status items

    Remove step of manually checking for OCLC "Returned" status before generating overdues. it would be helpful if the automatic process included checking the OCLC status before sending it off and not sending for items in Returned status.

  8. Allow deletion of unmatched electronic delivery

    Sometimes items with a status of Delivered to Web will reroute back into electronic delivery. The item is then stuck in the "No ILL Lender Match" box and can't be be deleted or permanently rerouted back to Delivered to Web. Each time this happens OCLC support has to manually delete the transaction. ILL staff should have the ability to delete. Or, the bug that reroutes transactions back into electronic delivery needs to be patched.

  9. 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.

  12. Clear browser cache

    Grant us the ability to clear previously entered browser data and the web cache within the "Docline request web browser window" in the illiad client, perhaps at the very least add a back button?

    This lack of functionality can be particularly problematic with Docline's new multipath sign-on feature. A user in the illiad client could enter a "valid" login, like say their facebook, google, or institution's SSO credentials, which would pass thru the gateway, but still wouldn't be authorized with Docline. Locking them out docline but having no easy way to change their credentials to the "correct" login.

    So far…

  13. Book Chapters - Should use Article holdings path instead of Loan holdings path

    Book chapter requests use the incorrect custom holdings path; they pull from OCLCILLLoanHoldingsPath instead of OCLCILLArticleHoldingsPath, but the latter is the correct path.

  14. API method to get requests based on other parameters besides User

    Extend the Web API to include methods that will return data of requests made on parameter like RequestType and RequestDate. This would enable the interfacing of ILLiad data with other database systems.

  16. ILLiad Aeon integration: send scan files back to ILLiad for request fulfillment

    We use ILLiad to Aeon integration to facilitate Special Collections scanning for ILL lending. When we send a scan request via ILLiad to Aeon, we would like the ability for Aeon to pass the .pdf back to ILLiad for request fulfillment. Currently, Aeon staff have to email the .pdf to ILL staff in order for the file to get uploaded to ILLiad for ILL delivery. This would be similar to the Ares/ILLiad integration: we pass scans to ILLiad from Ares for scanning fulfillment through OpenURL.

  17. 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.

  19. Allow WebAlerts to be set based on User LoanDeliveryMethod

    WebAlerts can currently be set by a number of useful keys, like DeliveryLocation (which NVTGC code a user has set as pickup location).

    Like many libraries, we are greatly increasing mail to home options due to COVID-19, and the majority of our classes being remote in the fall, and are using Users.LoanDeliveryMethod.

    I'd love to be able to give special messages to patrons depending on whether they have marked LoanDeliveryMethod MailToAddress or HoldForPickup. For those being mailed, I want to remind them to update their address; for those picking up, there may be changes iin hold shelf protocol.

    Thanks for…
