  1. In addition to BrowZine search results, include further option "None of these? Search your library catalogue"

    If a user performs a search in BrowZine and BrowZine finds no results, the user will be presented with a link saying 'No matches for “XXXXX”. 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.'

    This option to search in your library holdings this option is only presented if BrowZine finds NO matches to the search. If BrowZine finds any matches - either in journals supported by BrowZine, or journals not supported by BrowZine - then the only options are those presented…

  2. Include Abstact Images in the ToC

    Enable images associated with the abstracts to be visible in the ToC. This is especially import for chemistry journals, as the abstract images contain significantly more information than the title.

  4. Primo integration: Add a mouseover to the text View Issue Contents to indicate to users that they are linking to an external system

    To help to make it clear to users that they are linking to an external system (i.e. leaving Primo), it would be great if a customisable mouseover could be added to the text View Issue Contents.

  5. Support multiple sources of access

    For several of our journals, we have access to some years through one source and other years through a different source. Right now, BrowZine only supports one source and chooses the one that provides the most access. We would like BrowZine to support multiple sources so we can have our complete access available.

  6. Allow customizable journal title selection for the widget

    It would be useful to be able to select specific titles to be displayed on the widget. This would mean they could be in different subject areas, allow more personalized choices, and avoid embargoed titles.

  7. Sub-collection

  8. Switch the default order of journals in subjects

    At the moment, if a user clicks on a subject the default order is alphabetical which to me does not seem very useful for browsing. If the user had known the title he would have entered it into the search slot (that works very well!) I would prefer having the journals ordered by SJR value instead so I can see more important journals in a field I'm perhaps not very experienced with (as I don't know many journal titles ...)

  9. Browzine-Admin-tool for Library Administrators: with anonymized usage statistics

    Can you offer an Admin-tool for Library Administrators where the admin can monitor (anonymized) usage statistics (e.g. lenght of usage, download number, journal hitlist, day/time of usage, from which pages the user come from e.g. if the Browzine-API is used mostly or another library page...)

  11. Export bookshelves and article collections

    It would be very useful to be able to export a complete bookshelf or article collection to a list of URL's and to a libguide table.

  12. Add drag and drop to My Bookshelf within BrowZine on the web

    Add a similar experience that mobile enjoys to the web version of BrowZine to allow users to re-arrange their Bookshelf via a simple drag and drop interface.

  13. Include basic PDF markup capabilities in Browzine

    It'd be great to be able to do basic markup in the PDF view in Browzine—even just highlighting would be fantastic. A lot of academics like to mark up PDFs while reading and then store the marked-up version in a Zotero or Mendeley library. Browzine is fantastic at retrieving and then uploading to a personal library, but the middle markup step is missing. I used to be able to make it work with Papership or Zotfile, both of which are now defunct. I can export to iAnnotate or some other annotation app, but I can't then get it into Zotero…

  14. Add subject headings to the usage statistics

    When viewing the usage statistics for "My Bookshelf", "TOC Views", and "Full Text Downloads" it would be really useful to have the subject headings that each journal is tagged with. This would allow more granular analysis of themes/subject popularity.

  16. enable multiple holding years to be displayed on Journal titles.

    Some titles may have broken holdings years (e.g. 1990-2005, 2011-present) and it would be good to have a way to display this information in BrowZine records.

  17. Provide the month and page numbers for journal articles. I usually search by month, not issue number.

    Please include the month and page numbers for articles in the Available Issues dropdown. It is difficult to search for articles by journal issue number. Most MDs I know refer to an article by the month it was published in a particular journal - eg - "the December issue of JCO." It is tedious opening and closing each issue of a journal to find one particular article that I am look for.
    Thanks

  18. Allow for custom upload of dummies to represent titles the library subscribe to, but are not available yet via Browzine

    While we know that Browzine could link back to the A-Z list if a user searched for title that's not available in Browzine, we are concerned that actual browsing could be misleading, because users might think this is all that's available and not put in a search. We'd like to have a way to represent ALL of our holdings - including titles Browzine does not offer. If there is a way to custom create dummies by uploading a list, that would resolve the problem, even if they are not as pretty and reflect the actual journal cover.

  19. Saving to My Articles could be more intuitive

    When adding an article to "My Articles" I was given the choice of "General collection" or "Create a new collection" in the pop-up box. I clicked the check-mark next to General Collection and clicked done, and the article didn't save to my articles. Turns out by clicking the checkmark I'd un-checked it meaning there was no collection selected to save it to, so it didn't save. It shouldn't have let me do this and/or should have warned me.

  20. 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…
