Types of Lists

Throughout OASIS, groups of titles are called lists. Depending on the workflow or type of list, they may posses similar behaviors or not. Some lists are considered "system" lists. These will either always appear or may appear based on the user's role at the library. Titles which are actioned (selected, ordered) from a "system" list will automatically be removed from the list. These lists may include, but are not limited to:

In addition to "system" lists, OASIS supports user defined Custom Lists. 
Users may create as many custom lists as they need, though at this time we recommend keeping lists to 500 titles or fewer in order to ensure system stability. Users cannot access colleagues’ custom lists; however, there is a golden check status phrase “On a List” in the browse row, and a similar phrase in the Check Status tab of the split screen, to notify customers when they are viewing a title which a colleague within the same library has added to a list. 


Titles will remain on a custom list until the user chooses to remove them, even if they are ordered or added to another list.

Creating custom lists

There are a variety of ways to create new lists, depending on the specific activity the user is completing.
 
1. Creating a list while browsing a group of titles such as search results or slip notifications
​​​​​​2. ​Creating a list while viewing other custom lists
3. Creating a list which maintaining all lists (not just custom lists)

Adding titles to a custom list

It is easy to add titles to a list. From any browse row screen use either the green action arrow for single titles or the bulk action buttons for multiple titles and choose the List/Forward option.

Select the list you would like to add your titles to.

Setting up email notifications

OASIS offers several options for receiving email notifications when new titles have been added to any list, whether it is a customer list or a system list. These options can be managed using the List Maintenance functionality, from either the Lists page (using the green action arrow) or from Account Settings.

Here you can set preferences for each list:

NOTE: "Instant" notifications can take 15 minutes or longer, depending on the list and the number of notifications. (Slip notification emails may take even longer.) All other notifications are delivered in the early morning (North America). We do not recommend using the monthly notification option at this time.

In the List/Forward dialog, Custom Lists with email notifications will be found under the "E-mail" section, after the "Lists" section.

The email will come from the alias YourLibraryLiaison@proquest.com and may contain the subject line "Selections in [list name]" or "Title(s) for your Consideration"

For titles using the Recommendation functionality, clicking on either link (Recommend or Reject) will allow the faculty selector to view any notes you have included and add a note back to you. Their response will appear in your Inbox, with a note that includes their name and whether they have recommended or rejected the title.

Sharing custom lists with colleagues

While OASIS does not currently support the ability to send a list to a colleague as a single unit, there are 2 options for sharing custom lists with colleagues.

To Forward titles to a colleague: The titles will appear in your colleague's In Box with a note in the browse row that includes your name and the name of your list.
