    • Add email notifications when a new issue is released for a journal on your bookshelf

      Add email notifications when a new issue is released for a journal on your bookshelf. I Currently have to go in and check, so it would be nice if I could be prompted.
      thanks,
      Jeremy

      • make it possible to read the abstracts (if present) in ToC screen

        Currently you ALWAYS have to download pdf to be abled to see if the article is really interesting or not. The abstracts help in a great way!

            Hello all! Our apologies – but we found one small issue here in making this available. Please hold off in using the widget maker for making things responsive for the moment. We should have this small issue patched up in the next day or two. Thank you all for your patience and we apologize about this small oversight! Stay tuned!

          • Provide support for adding non-library subscribed titles to My Bookshelf

            A researcher may have individual subscriptions available to them and/or they are interested only in receiving TOC alerts for a title the library as a whole may not subscribe to. Provide a way to put these titles as well on My Bookshelf for easy access to these titles as well.

              • Share shelfs with other users

                It would be great if a user could have multiple shelfs and share shelfs with other users. Sharing both journals and specific articles. For example: A professor could compile a shelf for a specfic masters course and share it with the students.

                  • Enable a user to have more than one library affiliation without logging out

                    This is a fairly common scenario for faculty and students who are in Medicine, for example, and who may have access to both resources available at a hospital library as well as a university.

                    • Start with unread

                      I noticed if I click on a journal with unread articles, I start in the latest table of content, which is often not where unread articles are. These are often in "Articles in Press" and I suggest to be brought to that section.

                        • create a new issue alert.

                          If a subscriber has a journal title on his/her bookshelf, I suggest the creation of an alert to notify the subscriber when a new issue becomes available.

                          • Make it possible to mark an article as "unread" again

                            It's not frequent, but sometimes I'll see an article I really like, click it and get the "Not available yet, try later" error. I'd like to keep it unread so I remember to go back it later, but apparently "once clicked, always read."

                            Not a big deal, just for your consideration. Thanks!

                            • Add ability to customize the taxonomy/which subjects appear

                              It would be nice to suppress subject areas that appear in BrowZine which are not relevant to a particular library. For example, for hospital libraries to suppress the Arts & Humanities subject area.

                                      We have been in contact with ProQuest and as of April 22, 2016 they have no information about a new API that will support exporting from 3rd parties to Refworks 3. Refworks 2 has a mature API which BrowZine uses to support those customers and will continue to do so. ProQuest needs to produce an API for Refworks 3 in order for BrowZine to interact with it. We will keep you posted on this thread as we hear about ProQuest’s progress on delivering the new API.

                                      I (Leiden Univ) deleted the app from my mobile device and went to browzine.com. The app will be opened but I prefer the mobile website.

                                        put the date of the issue in the dropdown box under "Available Issues" of a journal. If I do not remember if a journal is monthly/weekly etc. then I have no idea of Issue 2, for example, is the one I have browsed or not without actually going through it again.
