  2. Please expand usage statistics with an overview of registered users/accounts per institution

    We would like to know how many persons (staff and students) of our institution downloaded BrowZine and created an account.

  3. Add a desktop version of Browzine.

    A desktop version of Browzine that would work much like the mobile interface, but through a normal desktop computer.

  4. Create a compatible app for use on Macs

    I don't know if Apple has any sort of migration assistant to help develop iPad apps into Mac apps, but I would prefer to have more screen real estate to read journal articles. And having a Mac app would be another incentive for more university libraries to sign up, since a large percentage of students have Macs.

    We will not be making a stand-alone Mac App, but a web version (accessible from your desktop of course) has been announced – watch this suggestion: http://support.thirdiron.com/forums/181845-browzine-features/suggestions/5890378-add-a-web-version-of-browzine for more information! We hope this solution which of course will run on PC’s as well should provide the additional real estate and wider reach this suggestion is noting!

  5. Automatically launch VPN App if needed by BrowZine

    Some institutions require VPN apps to use BrowZine such as Cisco's AnyConnect or Junos Pulse. Automatically launching these services when required would streamline BrowZine use while off-site for these institutions.

  7. Allow downloading of articles previously saved in Zotero.

    Allow loading of saved articles from my Zotero library and my PC so I can keep all my journal articles on my BrowZine bookshelf.

  8. 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

  9. WebDAV support for Zotero

    Currently BrowZine only supports saving PDFs directly to Zotero's servers. Zotero features a capability to save to WebDAV services instead, but this is not currently supported in BrowZine. Add support so that a user could put in their personal WebDAV credentials and save PDFs there instead of at Zotero's servers.

  10. 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.

  11. Enable addition of chat widget / LibAnswers

    Add the ability for libraries to include their chat widgets / "Ask a Librarian" within BrowZine, so that users can ask for help locally.

  12. 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.

  14. Export from BrowZine to Sente 6

    Please add Sente to your supported bibliographic systems for direct export of articles from BrowZine (export that retains article metadata) much as you already have for Zotero and Mendeley.

  15. 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.

  16. Please include individual Open Access articles that are published in subscription journals.

    Many subscription journals include individual articles that are Open Access. These often carry a CC licence or can be Identified using the NISO standard: http://www.niso.org/workrooms/ali/
    Please include them in the Open Access collection.

  17. Allow users to simultaneously access multiple institutions' resources.

    Our faculty members are affiliated with multiple institutions and find the process of signing in and out cumbersome. They would like to be able to access all of the content they are entitled to access, regardless of which institution provides the access.

  18. Include dates of coverage for publications

    On the list of covered publications at http://support.thirdiron.com/knowledgebase/articles/132654-what-publishers-do-you-support would you include dates of coverage? If this requires a more comprehensive list of specific titles for each publisher so much the better (but sorry for the extra work :-) )

  19. Enhance marketing widget to allow for a custom set of library-selected titles to be rotated

    To add to the existing automatically selected "top journals" in various areas, provide the library with the ability to hand-build the list of top journals to be used on specific subject guide pages.

    The marketing widget is being updated now to link specifically into BrowZIne for the web at ANY taxonomy level. This should allow some great flexibility, but at the same time we have opted for this approach rather than a system whereby you can create completely custom groupings on journals. Hopefully the linking into BZ Web for “instant gratification” of being able to access these titles makes up for this change of direction! Look for the new widget to be available starting the week of July 20.
