  3. 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.

  4. Add built-in function to close/exit BrowZine on smartphone

    There isn't currently a built-in function to close/exit the BrowZine app on a smartphone. As a work around, I had to restart my device. It is easy to see how such a feature would be very useful.

    BrowZine is designed to be available for the user whenever they need it, so there is not a function to “close/exit” the app on mobile devices. If this is something you do want to do on a regular basis however, I would encourage you to look at our instructions for cold starting the app which should achieve much the same effect without needing to restart your device:

    Thanks!

  7. 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.

  8. Synchronize PDFs in Saved Articles across devices.

    I find selecting PDFs for later reading on an iPhone quite doable, but when I want to read them on the ipad or PC; I have to duplicate that chore. Ideally, Saved articles and later the Reading List on the PC would sync.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Add punctuation to the Subject line when sharing articles via email

    To separate "Sharing" from the article title, to have some of the words stand out a bit more, and to have it look less like spam, add a colon (:) after Sharing, and enclose via BrowZine in brackets,
    eg from this: Sharing A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level via BrowZine
    to this: Sharing: A RDF-based approach to metadata crosswalk for semantic interoperability at the data element level (via BrowZine)

  18. 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.

  19. 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 :-) )

  20. 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.
