New resource type: book portions; combine two tabs for journal articles when bookmarking

We have feedback from an academic: I have spent more than 1 hour to try to add a book portion (NOT a whole chapter) and still could not add it. So, we would like to see an option to add book portion (as a new resource type) with multiple page rang...

Option to include resource URL when bookmarking from Primo

When bookmarking from resources within Primo, the Online Resource link defaults via the link resolver/Open URL. We would like to be able to include a direct (platform specific) link to the resource when creating these bookmarks. The URL informatio...

The ability to copy and paste an existing bookmarked item or section within the same list or in a different list

At the moment, we can only cut and paste an item within the list however, often academics would like to repeat an item in different parts of the list (especially if divided into sections by weeks). There is no way of doing this. If it is in a pers...

When bookmarking books to include ISBNs with 020 |z's in RDA records as well as 020 |a's

A lot of the large record downloads from suppliers and other sources set ISBNs for e-books with |z (used for faulty ISBNs) at the front, not |a's. This is because the ISBNs are not in the actual e-book text (an absurd and pointless cataloguing pra...

Ability to set an institutional level retention period for storage of bookmarks by list editors and creators

We've had a number of problems related to bookmarks over the years, where our list creators and editor have used older bookmarks without checking whether the links work. This is particularly a problem when switching suppliers, such as when Dawsone...

Amend the ISSN populated from bookmarking to include the dash eg 1234-5678

Currently when bookmarking from a journal, Talis includes the ISSN data without a dash after the first four digits. Library catalogues, publishers and journal sites display an ISSN in the format of 1234-5678 (including the dash) whereas Talis is d...

All bookmark resource types should have the option to change author from Dual Field to Single Field

Some bookmark types (eg Book) have the option, when first bookmarking, to change the Author field from Dual Field to Single Field. For other bookmark types (eg Document), when first adding an Author field it can only be added as Dual Field; the op...

Customise name of Library Search in new OCLC WorldCat Discovery integration

It would be good to be able to customise the name of the Library Search in the new OCLC integration (when you use Add Resource, underneath the user's own bookmarks it's currently called Library Search). We all have slightly different local names f...

Site configurable label text for 'Add Resource' search function

We would like the wording for 'Search by title, author, or ISBN-13' to be site configurable so that it is clear to instructors/staff what exactly is being searched. For instance, a more useful label text for Douglas College might be 'Search OneSea...
