  1. 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.

    • Treat end dates of journal coverage in similar way to embargoed content

      I believe you may already be working on this. Could content beyond an end date of coverage be shown in the same way as embargoed content so users can request articles in these later issues from the library? Posting this to get an update on when this is likely to go live. Thank you.

      • Customization options for homepage image

        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.

          • 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.

                  The categories are great for our faculties, but for our Digital Library we would like the possibility to show journals from all categories in the widget.

                    • Marketing widget between 190 and 400 pixels

                      Is it possible to get a BrowZine widget that's between the 190 and 400 pixel widths. In LibGuides, the 190 looks good in 25% columns, and the 400 fits within 42% and 50% columns. But for 33% columns, the 190 is too narrow and the 400 runs into the next column.

                      • 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.

                        • Eliminate the "dead end" caused by partial title matches

                          Currently if a title search results in a partial match, it will retrieve journals that are not exactly the one wanted. If this happens, the user will not get the link to search outside of Browzine, and no other options are given. Please add the option to search outside of Browzine when partial matches are retrieved.

                            This enhancement is considered completed! The solution here was in the ingestion of all holdings data for a library, even those not covered by BrowZine which was released about 4 months after this request was filed in Feb 2016. However, we have rolled out this enhancement over our hundreds of subscribing libraries over a series of months because of the extra configuration involved but can now say this solution has been implemented. Thank you!

                            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.

                            • Add Bibtex as bibliographic system

                              Yesterday I had a presentation of Browzine for our institute of computional engineering. They were positive, but it was mentioned that they miss the opportunity to export into Bibtex. Some of them use the program LaTeX for writing instead of MS Word, and Bibtex is used as bibliographic management system in addition to this.

                                    • Add the possibility to categorize/sort saved articles and tag them.

                                      Our patrons would like to be able to categorize and sort them, maybe even store them in folders.
                                      And they would like to use tags to label them. And have the possibility to search using those tags.

                                        With the release of My Articles, users can now save articles in one of many collections. They can also sort those articles by the date added or the journal from which they came. While this does not include the supported “tagging” feature, we are not introducing that at this time so will consider this enhancement completed. Thank you for the suggestion and I hope your users find this useful!

                                      • Context sensitive links to the catalogue

                                        Is it possible to make links to the catalogue context sensitive? For example if a user searched for Incite the link that reads:

                                        Please click here to search for your title again outside of BrowZine.

                                        Would be:

                                        Or for Mining journal:

                                        http://primo-direct-apac.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=CSIRO&tab=csiro&fn=search&vl%28freeText0%29=%20mining+journal

                                        Thanks.
