    • 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.

              • Rename "My Bookshelf" to something like "Favorites"

                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?

                • 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

                  • 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.

                    • Saving to My Articles could be more intuitive

                      When adding an article to "My Articles" I was given the choice of "General collection" or "Create a new collection" in the pop-up box. I clicked the check-mark next to General Collection and clicked done, and the article didn't save to my articles. Turns out by clicking the checkmark I'd un-checked it meaning there was no collection selected to save it to, so it didn't save. It shouldn't have let me do this and/or should have warned me.

                            • 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.

                              • Allow for custom upload of dummies to represent titles the library subscribe to, but are not available yet via Browzine

                                While we know that Browzine could link back to the A-Z list if a user searched for title that's not available in Browzine, we are concerned that actual browsing could be misleading, because users might think this is all that's available and not put in a search. We'd like to have a way to represent ALL of our holdings - including titles Browzine does not offer. If there is a way to custom create dummies by uploading a list, that would resolve the problem, even if they are not as pretty and reflect the actual journal cover.

                                    • Filter Out "Accepted Manuscripts" from BrowZine until there is actual content available

                                      Some publishers like Oxford and IEEE sometimes produce an "article in press" which does not lead to full text since the publisher has not yet posted the document. Suppress these items from BrowZine, if possible, so that users being alerted about their existence don't waste time chasing items not yet available.
