    Main Features

    Automatically Complete Citations with an Unlimited Number of Licenses

    August 2022 LegantoURM-143326

    To streamline library processing work, libraries can now choose to have citations automatically set to Complete when the associated electronic portfolio is available to an unlimited number of concurrent users. This option is disabled by default. To enable it, set the unlimited_access_citation parameter to define the desired citation status (BeingPrepared, Complete, Declined, Inactive, InProcess, ReadyForProcessing, or a code from the Additional Reading List Citation Statuses code table.

    If desired, you can use the unlimited_access_model_code (Configuration > Leganto > List Management > Course Reserves Automatic Status) parameter to customize the list of Unlimited Access Model Codes (Configuration > Acquisitions > Acquisitions Infrastructure > Licenses > Access Model) that triggers the citation status change. The default values are PUR-UU, UA, U-UA, which all have the public access model Please note that the platform supports unlimited access. 

    Once configured, each portfolio with a link in the Acquisition tab > Public access model field (see screenshot below) is checked against the unlimited_access_model_code parameter. If at least one of the codes matches, the citation status automatically receives the status defined in the unlimited_access_citation parameter. If the Public access model field is left empty, no changes occur.

    Configuration settings for the Acquisition tab.

    You also have the option to add a Custom GIF URL to present your own GIF for each screen. By default, the out-of-the-box GIF appears.

    Use "Demand in Other Lists" to Support Purchasing Decisions

    July 2022 Fulfillment - Course ReservesURM-148401

    For purchase requests created from a citation, the Course Information section of the purchase request now includes a Demand in other lists, other courses link. Selecting the link opens the Manage Resource Options window, enabling you to easily view information (such as course, number of participants, tags, etc.) about this citation in other lists and courses.

    View Reading List Tags in the Demand in Other Lists Table

    July 2022 Fulfillment - Course ReservesURM-152309

    When reviewing and processing citations, library staff can view "Demand in other lists". And use it to understand which other reading lists or courses utilize the same resource. The Demand in other lists, other courses table now includes a new Citation Tags column. This column enables library staff to easily determine which citation tags are associated with the citation in other lists. For citations with multiple tags, the tags are listed separated by a semicolon (;). The column is hidden by default.

    Disable File Upload for Broken Link Reporting

    June 2022 LegantoURM-168220
    Leganto now includes the parameter mark_as_broken_file_upload (Configuration > Leganto > General > Settings) which enables uploading a file to the broken link report. Previously, the upload file option was tied to the option to upload a file to a citation. Now you can configure file upload for broken link reporting without impacting the ability to upload a file to a citation. When set to true, the option to upload a file when marking a link as broken is visible to both students and instructors in the mark as broken dialog box. When set to false, this option is hidden. The default for this parameter is true.

    The maximum file size allowed is 50 MB.

    Automatically Assign Reading Lists

    June 2022 Fulfillment - Course ReservesURM-122353
    To automate the process of assigning reading lists to library staff for processing, we added the parameter auto_select_list_assignee (Configuration > Fulfillment > General > Other Settings). When a reading list is associated with a course and auto_select_list_assignee is set to true, the list is automatically assigned to a processing department operator (Configuration > Fulfillment > Courses > Processing Department > Operators tab) from the course's processing department at random. When set to false, the Assignee can only be set manually. The default setting for this parameter is false.
    Unassigned reading lists task list.
    Reading List Assignee
    List of operators who can be assigned to lists.
    Course Operators
    If the Operators list for a processing department is blank, the list will not be automatically assigned.
    When multiple courses are associated with a list, the Assignee is selected from the processing department of the first course that was associated with the list.
    For imported reading lists, if the import file includes an Assignee, the Assignee is assigned to the reading list. If the file Assignee is blank, the list is assigned to an operator from the processing department at random.  
     For rolled over reading lists, if the rollover job is configured to copy the Assignee, the Assignee is assigned to the list. If the Assignee is blank, or the rollover job is not configured to copy the Assignee, the list is assigned to an operator from the processing department.
    If a course is deleted or unassociated with a list, the current Assignee remains assigned to the reading list.

    For more information, see Assigning a Reading List Automatically.

    Option to View Label Codes in Leganto

    April 2022 LegantoURM-167078
    To enable easier customization and translation of labels (Leganto Configuration > General > Customer Labels), administrators now have the option to display all translation labels by selecting Show translation labels from the user menu.

    • May 2022 LegantoURM-165495

      Previously, when creating a new assignment by uploading a file, instructors had to send the reading list for library review so the library could process the citation, including the copyright approval which is required for students to view the assignment. To perform this action the instructor had to leave the assignments page and open the reading list. Now, when an instructor creates an assignment by uploading a file that requires copyright approval, the citation status updates to Ready for processing, sending the citation to the library for review.

      For citations that do not need a copyright review, when the copyright status is approved, the status updates to the value configured for the parameter citation_copyright_approved (Configuration > Leganto > Course Reserves Automatic Statuses). 

      For more information, see Uploading a New File and Creating an Assignment.

    • April 2022 Leganto SF: 06211071URM-169542

      This feature is only relevant for institutions using Canvas. Previously, for institutions that use the Course Management System Roles Mapping table (Leganto Configuration > LTI > Course Management System Roles Mapping) to add instructors to Leganto course records based on the data in Canvas, users were added as instructors in Leganto if they were listed as instructors on any course in Canvas. As a result, students may have been incorrectly added to the Leganto course as instructors. Now, Leganto can be configured to add the instructor to the Leganto course only when he or she is the instructor for the same course in Canvas. To enable, you must first update the custom fields on the External Tool (for LTI 1.1) or the Developer Key (for LTI 1.3) in Canvas to include lms_user_roles=$Canvas.membership.roles. See the Developer Network Instructions for LTI 1.1 and Instructions for LTI 1.3 for details. Once the LTI tool has been updated, update the Course Management System Roles Mapping table to use the CMS role TeacherEnrollment.

    • January 2022 LegantoURM-154075

      Previously, the full citation view included an indication that an item is also on another reading list. To streamline the instructor and student experience and reduce confusion we are removing this indication.
      The section was misleading to instructors and students because it only displays other reading lists on the user’s “Lists” page and only citations which were linked to items in the Alma repository. As a result, it often displayed only the current reading list. Hence, it is not helpful to know that the item was on the reading list you are currently viewing, and the lack of other lists indicates that the item was not used on any other reading lists at your institution, which may not be true.
