  1. We use Polaris and our old catalog showed the number of renewals remaining/available for patrons. We've heard from patrons and staff that this would be appreciated versus the current view (number of renewals taken). Thanks for considering!

  2. We'd like the ability to suppress the cancel hold button from My Bookshelf. It's not possible for our patrons who place holds for interloans to cancel their holds for interloans from My Bookshelf. When they try to do so they retrieve a message in red text advising "!Requested resource was not found'. This is very confusing to our patrons. Suppressing the ability to do this would be very helpful, and would reduce patron confusion.

  3. Many libraries feature "browsing" collections which are not holdable, but are available for customer checkout. Currently, the only means to suppress the Place Hold button is via item status code (In Library Use, etc). However, there is not a means to suppress the button for those non-holdable collections that have a Check Shelves status, as Discover does not recognize ILS-based configurations such as ASAA (Sierra).

    The ability to suppress the Place Holds button based on additional codes - such as location or itype - would provide an effective workaround for these types of collections.

  4. On the Vega Discover home page, only the link to English(US) is visible. The link to Español is visible only after user clicks English (but why click “English” if the page is already in English?) Suggest to display the dropdown menu items, show an arrow next the English (US), or a link to Español (US) instead of showing English (US).

  5. We would like to be able remove "Export Citation" from the Options menu that appears on resource cards since it requires use of another service and we think this will just lead to confusion for our patrons.

  6. Improve Facet display by better utilizing space in Refinement Panel and utilizing word wrapping when necessary to display full facet value.

    In All Facet view display data in a single column of scrollable data and utilize word wrapping when necessary to display full facet value.

    For Limited Value facets such has: format, location, collection, age group, language, donor; allow the full facet content to display in the refine panel when expanded and in all facet view by adding scroll.

    For larger value facets such as concepts, persons, publishers; enable a Load XX more <facet> button in the All Facet View…

  7. Group different editions together in order so once a format/edition satisfies the hold, the other holds will
    automatically be cancelled. This can be useful for a user who doesn't care about the format and just wants any edition of the resource whenever it is available

  9. It would be very useful for consortia managers to be able to copy the homepage configuration, global header, and potentially other settings from the main site/parent domain to kiosks and collection sites or from any type of site to another. Or, similarly, to be able to simply duplicate a site and then edit it from there.

    This would save a lot of time when trying to create multiple sites that are harmonious in appearance and experience but distinct in content.

  11. In Vega, we can email saved lists/bookmarks to our emails, but that generates a link and if you try to print the list, it only prints what you are looking at, not the whole list.

    It would be very helpful to be able to print the whole saved list.

  12. Support indexing subfield $t in the 7XX (added entry) and 6xx
    Currently author title entries in the 700 subfield t are not searchable
    RDA uses 700's in cases where there are multiple works together

  15. Currently only one account has the ability to make administrative changes to the Vega Discover site. It would be valuable to have at least 2 accounts to ensure that libraries are in compliance with security standards and not sharing accounts when the primary account holder is out and to split the role as needed for more efficient workflows.

  16. I have had a couple of libraries ask me about this:

    will we be able to use the abbreviations from advanced search like in Encore in Vega? i.e. c:117 limits to my library, f:a. I use that all the time to help patrons and find resources quicker both in Sierra and Encore.

    For further clarity:

    Some libraries like to use the shortcut codes—once you know them, it’s faster and easier than using the facets to narrow down your search.

    In her example, she’s using the Encore advanced search, limiting the format to books and to her collection. When you do…

  18. Currently, we are able to see a few of our e-items when searching in Kiosk mode. I would suggest full e-materials (Hoopla, Libby, etc) integration in Kiosk mode. If that is not possible, is there a way to exclude all e-items in Kiosk mode as we don't want our patrons to think that the e-items showing up are the only e-items we have?

  19. Our live action and animated Disney films are rolling up together because Vega ignores parentheses in uniform titles.

    Each have separate and distinct 130 tags (uniform title) but because the authorized uniform title headings are Aladdin (Motion picture : 1992) for the animated and Aladdin (Motion picture : 2019) for the live action and because Vega ignores text in parentheses in titles, it's treating both as just "Aladdin" and rolling up both as a single record.
