  1. Have a simple list of titles as an alternative to the bookshelves which display too little

    The bookshelves for My Library display too few titles - I'd prefer a simple list, which would enable perhaps 25 titles on a screen - the bookshelf display might be suitable for kids but it's not really necessary for Browzine's users.

    • 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.

      • Sub-collection

        In My Articles allow me to create a sub-collections under a main collection. For example Under Cystic Fibrosis allow sub-collections for diagnosis, treatment, etc.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Option for "Export all citations"or "export selected citation"

              It takes time to manually download every citation, especially when you want to download a whole edition. An "Export all" and "Export selected citations" function would come in handy.

              • 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.

                • Provide support for adding non-library subscribed titles to My Bookshelf

                  A researcher may have individual subscriptions available to them and/or they are interested only in receiving TOC alerts for a title the library as a whole may not subscribe to. Provide a way to put these titles as well on My Bookshelf for easy access to these titles as well.

                    • 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…

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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 ...)

                            • We'd like this sorting enhancement, please...

                              Using the sorting option, titles with current full text would be displayed first, followed by embargoed content, with unsubscribed titles last.

                                • Allow multiple subjects in Widgets

                                  I'm a librarian and have created several subject area widgets for disciplines I work with. Sometimes however your subjects don't match my institution's majors well and I'd love to be able to choose multiple subjects from the list when I make widgets. An example would be I'd like to be able to choose Women's Studies and LGBT Studies together.
                                  Thanks for considering.

                                  • allow sort option for the widget

                                    Allow libraries to select title or rank sort for the "Explore journals" link from the marketing widget. Apparently it used to be only sortable by title and now it's only sortable by rank due to user feedback -- giving the choice (even if it requires manually editing the generated code) would satisfy both camps.

                                    • Allow for modification of the "Access Provided By" text

                                      The text appearing above our university logo on the BrowZine home page reads "Access Provided By." Ideally, we would have the option to modify or remove it.

                                        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.

                                        • Sync items in my bookshelf to my favourites in Primo

                                          As it is possible to integrate BrowZine within Primo it would be useful if article information saved to the my bookshelf could be synced to display in a users Primo my favourites area. Otherwise students will have to check 2 different accounts for saved items.
