    February 2021 Release

    e-Activation Tasks Bypassed

    February 2021 RialtoNGS-2871
    Institutions no longer have to go through the manual profile activation step after MD import takes place. This step is now bypassed automatically. If your library workflow requires this step and you would need to reintroduce it, please contact customer support. 

    Access Model Sent as Part of the Order

    February 2021 RialtoNGS-3349
    Now the marketplace license as appears on the offer is mapped to the "Access Model" field on the PO Line. This helps you make sure that the correct access model (license type) is sent with the order, so you can monitor what license level was purchased from the PO line.

    Support for Multiple ISBNs in ISBN Search Added

    February 2021 RialtoNGS-3039

    This can help you search in bulk is cases such as when coming from a reading list or excel list of ISBNs, or when your reading list includes both 10 and 13-digit ISBNs: both ISBNs can be added to the ISBN market search.

    The number of ISBNs that you can search for is limited to 256 characters in total (the length of the browser call).

    Publication Year Range Added to Work Search Results

    Now the work search results display a range of publication years for the offers included in it.

    Updated Counts at the Work Level 

    February 2021 Rialto

    After performing a search, facet counts now reflect the total count for offers within the works presented. Work counts at the top of the work results remain the same, however a tool tip has been introduced next to this number to clarify count discrepancies.


    Dewey Decimal Enhancement

    February 2021 Rialto

    Now you are able to query for and refine your search results by numbers to the right of the decimal in the Dewey Decimal System. This allows you to more accurately search for and identify desired materials with reduced clicks.
