  1. Allow libraries to customize messaging that shows up for embargoed journal issues (for ILL/Link Resolver integration)

    Allow libraries to customize this to more specifically address ILL or Link Resolver integrations.

    Specific features to customize:
    1) Messaging in orange highlighted box on TOC page
    2) Messaging in interstitial window: "Your library does not have the full text of:" ... "... but we may be able to get it for you!"
    3) Wording of button/link text (currently says: "Request this item and/or check additional sources"

    • 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

      • 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.

        • 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.

              • Add built-in auto-read feature

                It would be wonderful to have an auto-read feature built-in the app. This could be used for those interested in an article but have too small a screen, listening to an article while on the road (or wherever), and for BrowZine accessibility for those with poor to minimal eyesight. I think this support facet could greatly increase ‘everyday’ usage of the app.

                • 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.

                    • Add functionality to import search results from e.g. Web of Science

                      This would greatly improve the workflow of going from query to full text article.

                      • Create a bookshelf that can be integrated into libguides, instead of the current practice of building a display from scratch.

                        I am a subject librarian for the School of Engineering. I have 8 subject guides corresponding to 8 disciplines. At the moment, the only way of displaying key journals in BrowZine is to build a table of titles from scratch. Instead, I would like to be able to create a bookshelf for each discipline, and integrate each bookshelf into the corresponding libguide.

                        • 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…

                          • Add the option to display one, two, three or four shelves in the My Bookshelf bookcases

                            For example, if only two shelves were displayed, then the journal cover images could be enlarged to fill the space.

                            • Add additional bookcases to My Bookshelf

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

                                Many users are familiar with standard abbreviations for their titles, so allowing the search to be able to translate these abbreviations into relevant titles would be helpful to them.

                                • Have the journals that appear in the montage on the BrowZine Web splash screen reflect the type of library using it

                                  For example, have the splash screen just show medical journals if the customer is a hospital library.

                                      Provide options for libraries to select an image of journal titles representative of their holdings / user community. E.g. a medical library could select a stock image reflecting top medical journals while a liberal arts college could select an image reflecting top titles from a variety of disciplines.

                                      • Add alternate Help button on BrowZine Web to go to library instead of Third Iron support

                                        Turn the Help icon into a drop down menu, allowing users a choice of contacting either Third Iron support or the library for support.

                                          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.
