Display on the Atrium Level near the multipurpose room is cutting off part of the screen. It's intelligible, but doesn't look great. I need to edit the sylesheet for it.

[8/25/17 @ 4:55 pm - Matthew] Syndetics cover images are loading over an insecure connection (HTTP) and Summon searches are directed to the insecure version of Summon (HTTP). I've submitted a ticket to have these addressed, but I suspect they may be seen as feature requests rather than bugs. In both cases, our journal finder page is loading over HTTPS, so users will get extra warnings from browsers for having the insecure elements present.

Case #00462308 with Ex Libris.

[1/25/16 @ 3:18 pm - Matthew] Macs are not included in the computer availability map. We're working with IT to get them added.

A contact from IT indicated that they are finally working on adding Macs, but have run into some difficulties with getting the login and logoff scripts tonwork properly.

[9/8/17 @ 6:16 pm - Matthew] The comouter availability map is innaccurate at Mary I (and possibly other locations). I suspect this is related to the recent reimaging of computers by IT. I'm working with Institutional Marketing to fix the issue.

[2018-02-09 10:42 AM]-Patrick Roth

[9/13/17 @ 3:43 pm - Matthew] Computers are not letting the system know when they log out. Logging in is being captured perfectly, but the system thinks that all computers are in use even after a user has logged off, because the message is not making it to the server.

Institutional Marketing is aware of the issue and is working on it with IT.

[10/2/17 @ 1:14 pm - Matthew] As of this morning, the computer availability map is not updating for either logins or log outs. This means that it is currently showing that every computer in the building is available. I have a ticket in to Institutional Marketing to find out what is going on and will update when I know more.

[10/4/17 @ 3:01 pm - Matthew] The room reservation system is having intermittent problems, where users are told that the room they chose was unavailable. This tool was created and is maintained by IT, and we have reported the problem to them. You can direct users with this issue to the IT help desk and we'll continue to to monitor the issue.

[10/10/16 @ 10:07 am - Matthew] When reviewing transcripts and looking at the monthly statistics, it would be so great if the reporting dates remain the same when you toggle between the transcripts tab and the statistics tab. Every time you change between those tabs it reverts back to the current date, and I have to manually enter the date range again.

[10/10/16 @ 10:06 am - Matthew] When reviewing chat transcripts, you can filter by chat rating, which is super helpful. However, when you're in that tab, you can view the transcript but you can't email it to anyone. This is really annoying because that means that I need to go back to viewing all transcripts in order to be able to email myself a transcript with a 4-star or 1-star rating. It would be so great if they could add that "email" icon/feature when you're viewing the chat ratings/comments.

8/12/16 @ 11:55 am - Matthew] When running statistics for a guide, if you have a lot of assets or if you want to see the referring URLs for a guide over a period longer than 2 months, the server will time out before it returns your statistics. Springshare is aware of the issue and working on it, but in the meantime the work-around is to run your stats in 30-day increments.

[4/17/15 @ 11:01 am - Matthew] We'd like to be able to manually order the databases listed as "Best Bets" in the Database A-Z list.

[2018-02-09 10:38 AM]-Patrick Roth

[4/17/15 @ 12:39 pm - Matthew] From Springshare (wow they are fast):

You're not alone in wanting the ability to setup a custom order for your best bet databases. We already have this feature request filed. I'm not sure when the LG developers will be able to actually get it coded, but it is on the list!

[3/2/16 @ 1:30 pm - Matthew] I checked in with Springshare about this:

this is still on our list of potential database list improvements, but I can't give you an ETA as to when this might be developed.

[8/19/14 @ 11:58 am - Matthew] LibGuides 2.0 Database A-Z list doesn't work without JavaScript. Even though most visitors to our site have JS enabled, sites need to have an adequate non-JS fallback for when JavaScript fails to load or is unable to run (for instance, on some assistive devices). I've submitted a ticket to Springshare.

No JS Database A-Z List

Since this would violate section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities act, we won't be using the public side of the Database A-Z list in LibGuides until this issue is resolved.

[8/19/14 @ 3:08 pm - Matthew] The LibGuides 2.0 homepage is also inaccessible without JavaScript. Sigh. I have a broad interpretation of Section 508 accessibility rules, but I see this as being a problem for these two requirements:

(k) A text-only page, with equivalent information or functionality, shall be provided to make a web site comply with the provisions of this part, when compliance cannot be accomplished in any other way. The content of the text-only page shall be updated whenever the primary page changes.

(l) When pages utilize scripting languages to display content, or to create interface elements, the information provided by the script shall be identified with functional text that can be read by assistive technology.

I have reported this to Springshare, and hope they fix this soon!

[9/11/14 @ 4:06 pm - Matthew] Springshare notified me that these are both listed as priority fixes, so we should see an update shortly.

[8/12/15 @ 9:21 pm - Matthew] It's been almost a year, but it seems like this still doesn't work without JavaScript. I'll follow up with Springshare.

[3/2/16 @ 1:32 pm - Matthew] Checked up with Springshare again:

adding a non-JavaScript fallback for these public pages is still on our list of accessibility improvements. However, we can't provide an ETA as to when this might be developed.

The link resolver and the Journal Finder will be down for maintenance for a few hours the evening of February 17th. The Summon service will be available throughout the maintenance window, with searches and IEDL linking working as expected. However, OpenURL based links from 360 Link will experience unavailability and intermittency during the periods highlighted above. You can monitor the status at http://status.exlibrisgroup.com
