        • Change system message when there's no match for a title or the title has no ISSN

          If I search for a title in any of these categories

          * Not included in our BrowZine instance
          * Not included in our OCLC A-Z list
          * Does not have an ISSN

          I receive this message:

          "No matches for <title>. 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."

          I would like for it to read:

          "No matches for <title>. Please click here to search for the title in your library's journals list."

          Please either change the message globally or allow customization…

              • Have the app indicate when I have reviewed a journal

                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.

                    • Error alerts/log for library

                      If a user encounters an error such as "Full Text Failure - Your institution does not have access to this title. Please see your library for assistance", chances are they won't contact the library. It would be great if there was an option for the library to somehow be able to access a log or alert that these errors are occurring, so then we may properly update our holdings

                        • Option for "Export all citations"or "export selected citation"

                          It takes time to manually download every citation, especially when you want to download a whole edition. An "Export all" and "Export selected citations" function would come in handy.

                            • Show all journals in the library and their number in addition to journals and their number in each category.

                              Users want to see the scope/size of the library. They are asking how many journals are available in total. Subject categories artificially and subjectively segment journals. They may hide some journals from the users especial in the highly interdisciplinary research. Researchers do not want to jump between multiple categories and repeat browse in each.

                              • Allow a user to bulk transfer articles saved in the app

                                This would be useful to backup articles found and saved in BrowZine in a service like DropBox, Mendeley or other service.

                                    • Would love to see holdings information when browsing so users don't have to load each one at a time to see if they can get full tex

                                      At the moment you have to open each journal title to find out what access is available to the user. It would be much more intuitive to have this information at the browse page.

                                        64 seems an arbitrarily low number of journals to track--I'd like to be able to keep tabs on more.
