    Additional Leganto Features

    The following additional changes were made in this month's release:
    • When adding a section to a reading list, the section is now added to the end of the list (instead of the top). When duplicating a section, the section is added after the one that is being duplicated. This behavior can be configured by an Alma parameter; see Additional Alma Configurations.
    • When exporting a reading list to a PDF, the PDF now contains section and citation tags, as well as the public note.
    • When adding or editing a citation, the field Notes was moved to More Item Details and was changed to Resource Notes, in order to distinguish it from the citation's public note. This field name was also changed on the Citation page.
    • When enabled by your library, you can now include search results without full text access when searching for items in Primo Central.
      Include Records Without Full-Text Access
    • You can now add a citation public note when using Cite It! or when manually adding a citation.
      Cite It! Pane
    • You can now copy the reading list permalink by hovering your mouse over the reading list name and clicking the permalink icon that appears. A popup appears. Use your mouse to copy the permalink or click Copy to Clipboard. To close the popup, click the permalink icon.
      Permalink Icon
    • The call number no longer appears in parentheses.
