  1. Users have requested a "Select" option when viewing checkouts, holds, etc. in My Bookshelf. Ideally, this option would behave the same way it works in Innovative Mobile; users would be able to specify multiple titles and then renew them at the same time. The "bulk renew" option that was recently added to Vega Discover sort of addressed this, but users want to be able to select specific titles.

  2. Keep the search bar throughout ALL Discover pages. Similar to Google or any search engine - it should always be at the top and would make searching more convenient because it would avoid having to navigate back to the home page of the catalog.

  3. This will help staff let patrons know where the notice will be sent when placing a hold on their behalf. It will also show patrons where to expect the notice to be sent to when they place holds.

    The red box in the attached screenshot would say the following:

    "Notice will be emailed (or texted to): ***"

  4. We would like to be able to remove "advanced search" from the kids cat, however it appears that it is enabled across all the collection and kiosk sites if it is turned on. We would like to be able to enable it at the collection/kiosk site level if needed.

  5. Just like the facets column can be suppressed once you have set your search filters. The header should be the same way. It would be nice to be able to hide it once a patron is logged in & no longer needs it as it take up some screen real estate.

  6. Add contributors, such as translator, illustrator or foreword author to the edition bib-frame info "i" window to better distinguish between different editions of a title. Most people are likely looking for contributors when choosing between editions.

  7. The little “sprite” helper icon is cute, but the text she brings up to help the patron find call numbers includes the sentence “Click the map to find it at the library." and there isn't a way to edit or remove this text.

  8. This idea came from a journey mapping exercise at IUG - a non-card holder attempts to use the library for the first time, makes their way to a library website, uses the search box to find an item, and locates it in the results. They select the Get It / Place Hold button and are presented with a request to log in. With no card, they're at an impasse. An optional and customizable link / button that points back to the Polaris / Sierra Online Sign Up, 3rd Party Online Registration, or a page explaining the necessary steps to obtain…

  9. Currently, only partial of the bibliographic description is displayed due to either character limit and/or predetermined select subfields. The full description needs to be displayed to include additional content.

  10. We were attempting to update the "searchResultPageCopies" string so that it made more sense when viewing OverDrive eBooks / Audiobooks; we added the word "available" so that it would read "0 copies available" on OverDrive titles that were all checked out with waitlists.

    However, we've discovered that for physical books, the word "available" might be misleading, because for physical materials this tally seems to be a count of total items owned, rather than copies available.

    For example, we have a title where Books show 27 copies available, but that's not accurate because some are checked out and held; it is…

  11. Currently if a copy isn't available at the pickup location of any edition in a multi-edition rollup in Vega Discover, the holds logic dictates that it will look next for any edition with a copy available at the patron's home library, then for the edition with the most available copies, then if no copies are available, for the edition with the best holds:copies ratio.

    The libraries with branches in our consortium would like the holds logic to look at availability of editions at their BRANCHES next if the pickup library has branches but doesn't own any editions themself. Also, they…

  12. We need to be able to search by song title when searching for music cds or for sheet music books.
    It also its hard not be able to see the track listing for compilation albums (the Now cds for instance).
    We have patrons complain about this weekly.

  14. Many of our patrons prefer to control their Overdrive/Libby account through the catalog. There is currently no freeze option for Overdrive holds within Vega Discover. Not sure if this is because we don't import the Overdrive records into our ILS (Sierra) or not.

  15. In the current PAC if you do a series search for an author, you get results for titles in series by that author. The same doesn't happen in Vega Discover since 800 $a isn't indexed and only $t is indexed. We would like $a indexed as well.

  16. When viewing holds, can it be more clear to patrons when they’re unclaimed? It currently doesn't show that the pickup date has passed or call it Unclaimed, it just says that they're "0 - Waiting".

  17. We've had customers and staff point out that at times, shelf location information could be more visible in Vega results. In particular, we wondered if it would be possible to use bold type for the shelf location information on the search result page on the kiosk sites, in addition to the call number.

    Also, when you go to the detailed information that lists the call number, collection, and shelf location information, we thought perhaps, when the shelf location information is available, it might help if it was listed above the call number.

    Thanks for your consideration!

  18. As of now Vega doesn´t look at the order records in Sierra. We have set the system to allow holds on bib-records with no items attached for books. That in turn displays "On order" in Vega. This method has some complications but works for the most part since there usually are orders on these bibs. But we would like it to also display how many items are ordered. It helps inform our patrons if it´s worth placing a hold on the title.
    In the example (offer) I´ve included we have a new book with 8 copies ordered. If that information…

  19. When creating a bookmarked list, can the warning "law enforcement may be able to access without your consent" still be displayed like it is in the current PAC when a list is created?

  20. We would like there to be a similar feature to map it that there is in the current PAC. This is NOT similar to Stack Map in that this would help users find nearby libraries/branches within the consortium that have items (that they could travel to) and Stack Map seems to show them where items are within the library (a map within the library).
