    When I type a custom email to a patron from within the client, I'd like spell check.

  2. See last opened request

    Could there be a way to see a list of the last 5 or so requests that a staff person opened? We sometimes forget to place notes or verify a piece of information before it gets routed to the next step. Titles or usernames are not always remembered correctly to find the request again. Even just the last request opened would be helpful.

  3. Make a library's loan period visible on the borrowing holdings screen

    When creating a holdings list, currently borrowers can see the institution name, days to respond, and fees for lending institutions. It would be nice to see the library's loan period for items in this area.

  5. Move ILLiad to cloud

    It'd be great to replicate the great ILLiad on the web so that staff can work remotely.

  6. Automatically block patron accounts when the expiration date is reached

    All patron accounts are given expiration dates but the account remains active beyond this date until something occurs and the account is investigated and then manually blocked.
    It would be great to have the system automatically block users when the expiration date is reached. This would help prevent graduated students and people no longer with our library from requesting materials through our services.

  7. Allow for staff to login to the ILLiad client via LDAP or SSO

    From customer: If we could automatically/programmatically create Staff User accounts in ILLiad and have the option for them to authenticate via LDAP to the ILLiad client, that would be really convenient. (Or if there was a Single Sign-On option that used the computer's Windows credentials to authenticate staff users).

  8. Option to print articles and loans separately in Doc Del

    In Doc Del, have a dropdown choice of printing either articles or loans instead of all. We process these on different floors and it's really handy in Lending.

  9. I'd like to have the power to make mass changes such as changing Department Names.

    example: Our Political Science department changed their name. I want to be able to make this change to all the existing patrons it would apply to.

  10. Enhance cancellation emails to borrowers to allow specific emails to be sent for specific cancellation reasons.

    From customer regarding patron notification email templates used for the cancellation of borrowing transactions. : It would be helpful if I had a template for each reason and if ILLiad would automatically select the right one for each specific reason.

  11. Add RequestType to default IFM ILLiad reports

    Purdue University needs to break down IFM charges by RequesType for internal reporting. Having this in the default reports would be very helpful. We'd like to see it for both Lending and Borrowing.

  12. Allow API to Add, Remove, and Update records in the UserValidation table

    Stanford U is locally hosted and has a custom job that imports users directly into the Users table. This job will update users based on any change event triggered in the Registrar's database. It creates many users that never end up using ILLiad. We would like a standard method of creating a process that pushes users into the UserValidation table and can update users, regardless of their being in the Validation table or in the Users table.

  13. NCIP integration for lending and borrowing

    Integrate the ability to send NCIP messages for both borrowing and lending including support for renewals and recalls into the standard workflow rather than requiring an addon to do so. Settings could be part of the customization manager.

  15. Cover sheet for Lending Requests

    Add the ability to apply a coversheet on the lending side which would allow lenders to include copyright information as required by the CONTU guidelines.

  16. Enable auto-population of citation information thru the users' Lending login

    To better serve former Loansome Doc users (as well as others), it would be helpful to have the ability to auto-populate the citation information thru the lending login. This feature exists in the borrowing login. It's easier for our patrons and more accurate for our staff than having patrons fill in the information manually or email it to staff.

  17. ILLiad stub accounts made when users fail to complete the registration process should be assigned to an NVTGC in use.

    When an ILLiad stub account gets made due to incomplete registration it should not be assigned to a site not in use like "ILL." Allow users to configure what site/NVTGC those stub accounts should be assigned to.

  18. Remove Patron Name Field in OCLC request

    When you submit a request through OCLC there is a field in Borrowing Information for the patron name. We have been deleting the patron name from this field for some time because we've found that it is sent to the lending library. If the library has a newer version of ILLiad, the patron name isn't sent, but if the lending library is on another system, it is. Removing this field would be an easy fix for patron privacy.

  19. Support for New Docline "NLM Unique ID" Requests

    Since New Docline's initial release, NLM has continued to add and refine features. One feature that has changed recently is an improved ability to handle requests based on NLM Unique ID. This is in addition to requests for articles with a PMID and "manual" requests.

    Request by NLM Unique ID is great for requesting print books that NLM owns (since they are such a reliable lender) as well as for all journal articles that are not indexed in PubMed, but for which a journal-level bib record exists in NLM's LocatorPlus catalog.

    In fact, New Docline's "Borrow - Unique Journal ID"…
