    NERS: Indication for Courses that Deliberately Have No Reading List

    January 2023 Leganto URM-176862 NERS NERS Enhancement (ID #7744)
    Your institution likely has a number of courses that will never require a reading list. You can now add a No list expected indication to a course to indicate to library staff that the course deliberately does not include a reading list. Marking courses that will not have reading lists can help you when communicating with instructors, and when reporting on the percentage of courses the library supports through reading lists.

    Reading lists can still be added to courses with the No list expected checkbox checked. Additionally, existing lists are not removed when the No list expected checkbox is checked.

    The "no list expected" checkbox.

    No list expected checkbox

    In the Courses table (Fulfillment > Course Reserves > Courses), the No list expected column indicates which courses have the No list expected checkbox checked.

    The No list expected column is hidden by default. To show the No list expected column, select the column from the Manage column display  list.

    If the librarian selects the Leganto create list - reminder email action for a course that has the No list expected checkbox checked, the librarian can still send the reminder email, but an alert appears indicating that This course is marked as 'No list expected'.

    When duplicating a course that has the No list expected checkbox checked, the No list expected checkbox is checked on the duplicated course.

    When rolling over a course that has the No list expected checkbox checked, the No list expected checkbox is checked on the rolled over course.

    The Course Bulk Update job (Admin > Manage Jobs and Sets > Run a Job) now includes the condition Excluded courses marked as 'No list expected' when the Leganto create list - reminder email checkbox is checked. This enables you to not send the Leganto create list reminder email to instructors whose courses intentionally do not include reading lists when the Course Bulk Update job runs.

    The option to exclude courses marked as "No list expected" when sending bulk create list reminder emails.

    Exclude courses marked as 'No list expected' when sending bulk reminders

    The No list expected indication will be added to Analytics in the February release.
