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

      • Add the ability to send an ILL request as an email

        When a user cannot download an article would it be possible to allow the user to request an ILL from the library via an email

        • Add an overall category for to the marketing widget

          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.

              • 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!

                • 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 alt-text to the Browzine widget.

                    The current widget is not accessible without alternative text for the images.

                    • add closed captioning to the vimeo video.

                      https://vimeo.com/52663192

                      It is problematic for us as an academic institution to link to vendor videos that are not accessible for our users.

                      • Enhance widget to display top ranked journals for a particular category

                        Some categories have a number of titles, so having the widget intelligently select "top journals" would be great to help promote BrowZine.

                        • 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:

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

                            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

                              • I'd like to be able to edit my tweets before Browzine sends.

                                I'm going to try the #365papers challenge (for which Browzine is perfect!) but need to add tags before tweeting. At the moment Browzine just tweets, so I have to fiddle around copying the url and title into twitter before posting.

                                  Not sure if this is even technically possible, but I've had a request from a prof who wants to build two persistent URLs, one that would behave normally, but a second, which he would include with a mobile icon, that would force a link to open within Browzine, if installed.
