I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Increase the number of journals allowed on each shelf.

    There are currently only 4 journals allowed on each shelf. I have my shelves (and book cases) categorized and it would be nice to be able to fit all journals of interest in that specific category. Unlimited number of journals per shelf would be idea, but dramatically increasing the number of journals per shelf is needed.

    • Switch Off Warnings

      Allow user to switch off display of warnings, such as 'Authentication Failed' in the Preferences/User Settings. E.g. I know when I am on the intranet or not and what to expect in both cases, so no warning needed.

      • Start

        On the PC, when I go to http://browzine.com, I'd like to start on My Bookshelf - as long as I'm logged in. This is in analogy to how Browzine behaves on the iPad. When not logged in, Browzine would start in the Browzine Library.

          • Allow a user to bulk transfer articles saved in the app

            This would be useful to backup articles found and saved in BrowZine in a service like DropBox, Mendeley or other service.

            • It'd be nice to be able to get a url to a widget for posting to social media. The embed code is great for libguides!

              I would like to do target marketing to departments, so it'd be nice to tweet something to the Art Department about art education journals via browzine with a nice widget/gif displaying

              • make the BrowZine widget responsive.

                The current widget design is not responsive for viewing on mobile devices.

                    We have been in contact with ProQuest and as of April 22, 2016 they have no information about a new API that will support exporting from 3rd parties to Refworks 3. Refworks 2 has a mature API which BrowZine uses to support those customers and will continue to do so. ProQuest needs to produce an API for Refworks 3 in order for BrowZine to interact with it. We will keep you posted on this thread as we hear about ProQuest’s progress on delivering the new API.

                    • 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" at the beginning of journal titles.

                        Some of the titles start with "The" (The Journal of Chemical Physics), so if someone's browsing a shelf for the title they'd have to look in the T's rather than the J's.

                        • Allow a user to mark an issue unread (the system already marks articles unread when a new issue/article comes out)

                          It would be useful for a user to mark an issue unread for them to better keep track of issues/articles that they wish to read, whether the issue is new or not. Note that BrowZine already marks new articles/issues unread.

                          • 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.

                            • add the capability to login via SSO.

                              Integrating the ability to login using SSO would make accessing BrowZine much easier.

                                • Enable a way to bookmark a spot in a journal

                                  It can sometimes be useful to not necessarily save a particular article but to bookmark my place when scanning through numerous old issues of a journal so that I can easily pick up where I left off later. Creating a function where I can place this marker on an article within an issue which is easily retrievable from the journal level and that would sync across devices would allow me to easily pick up where I left off, regardless of the device I'm using.

                                  • 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.
