    Leganto Release Notes July 2017

    New and Changed Leganto Features

    The following features are new or changed in this month's release of Leganto.

    Lock / Unlock Reading List

    Any reading list owner (or librarian) can lock a reading list. A locked list cannot be edited by anyone, except for a librarian or list owner (in Leganto). All options for editing the list disappear from the Leganto action menus, and items cannot be rearranged. The following actions can be performed on a locked list:
    • Add or edit the private note to a citation
    • Like or mark a citation as read
    • Add a comment to the citation
    • Copy the citation to My Collection
    • Export or print the reading list, section, or citation
    • Copy the permalink of the reading list, section, or citation
    • Unlock the list - Only the person who locked the list (not the other owners) or a librarian can unlock the list.
    To lock the list, select Lock in the reading list menu and click OK in the confirmation dialog box.
    Lock Reading List
    After locking the list, the option Unlock is available to the user who locked the list (and any librarian). Also see the change in Alma for this feature.

    Enhancements to the Find Lists Page

    In a simple search on the Find Lists page, you can search by list tile, course title, course code, and/or course instructors. You can now click Advanced Search to enter values for each of these search criteria individually.
    Find Lists - Advanced Search
    After searching for an item on the Find Lists page, you can now sort the results by list name (alphabetic with active courses first), list name (alphabetic), or academic year (by term, alphabetic within term).

    Additional Alma Configurations

      In addition, you can now enable or disable rules.
    • When a citation is already waiting for a SIPX license or the SIPX license was declined, the License through SIPX action does not appear for that citation on the Edit Reading List page.
    • Leganto User (True/False) was added as an option in access rights for digital representations. When selected, access to the representation can be denied based on whether the user is a Leganto user (has logged into Leganto at least once). See Adding an Access Rights Policy.
