  1. In addition to BrowZine search results, include further option "None of these? Search your library catalogue"

    If a user performs a search in BrowZine and BrowZine finds no results, the user will be presented with a link saying 'No matches for “XXXXX”. Title may not be BrowZine enabled at this time, but still available at your library. Please click here to search for your title again at your library.'

    This option to search in your library holdings this option is only presented if BrowZine finds NO matches to the search. If BrowZine finds any matches - either in journals supported by BrowZine, or journals not supported by BrowZine - then the only options are those presented…

      • enable multiple holding years to be displayed on Journal titles.

        Some titles may have broken holdings years (e.g. 1990-2005, 2011-present) and it would be good to have a way to display this information in BrowZine records.

        • Include basic PDF markup capabilities in Browzine

          It'd be great to be able to do basic markup in the PDF view in Browzine—even just highlighting would be fantastic. A lot of academics like to mark up PDFs while reading and then store the marked-up version in a Zotero or Mendeley library. Browzine is fantastic at retrieving and then uploading to a personal library, but the middle markup step is missing. I used to be able to make it work with Papership or Zotfile, both of which are now defunct. I can export to iAnnotate or some other annotation app, but I can't then get it into Zotero…

            • Browzine-Admin-tool for Library Administrators: with anonymized usage statistics

              Can you offer an Admin-tool for Library Administrators where the admin can monitor (anonymized) usage statistics (e.g. lenght of usage, download number, journal hitlist, day/time of usage, from which pages the user come from e.g. if the Browzine-API is used mostly or another library page...)

              • Display ISSN next to the title in BrowZine Web

                Visibility of the ISSN can help distinguish similarly named titles.

                • Add subject headings to the usage statistics

                  When viewing the usage statistics for "My Bookshelf", "TOC Views", and "Full Text Downloads" it would be really useful to have the subject headings that each journal is tagged with. This would allow more granular analysis of themes/subject popularity.

                    • mark issue as read

                      Duplicate the 'mark issue as read' button at the bottom of the list of articles (web interface), so you don't have to scroll back up to click it.

                      • Update the 2 minute video

                        Update the 2 minute video and remove the headached inducing music - yikes! Or perhaps just lower the volume so I could hear the narrator and hear myself think.

                        • Give librarians a list of users at their institution

                          We need a way to track adoption of BrowZine by our users, as well as a way to notifiy them of expected changes to the service. Apparently, this is not currently possible in BrowZine. Yet almost every publisher or database provider can provide librarians with lists of users from their institution.

                          • Title keyword search as well as exact match

                            We've had feedback from users who didn't find what they were looking for in BrowZine because the title search function only works with an exact match.

                            For example, if I'm looking for American Journal of Dance Therapy I can get to it by searching any of the words in the title in the correct order - so 'of dance' will retrieve the result I want. However if I search the keywords American dance then I get zero results.

                            Title keywords alongside exact matches would be a welcome addition.

                                The tab My Bookshelf is confusing to me. I feel like people will think they can search for our e-books using this platform. Is there way to change the name of that particular tab to something like Favorites or My Favorite Journals?

                                      Also please ensure this search option searches new and old volumes and updates you when articles are published meeting your criteria. This would be great for academics and students alike. Seth

                                      • Provide the month and page numbers for journal articles. I usually search by month, not issue number.

                                        Please include the month and page numbers for articles in the Available Issues dropdown. It is difficult to search for articles by journal issue number. Most MDs I know refer to an article by the month it was published in a particular journal - eg - "the December issue of JCO." It is tedious opening and closing each issue of a journal to find one particular article that I am look for.
                                        Thanks
