  1. Extension Indexing for Alma-D

    Publish the complete amazon S3 repository URL of a file contained as a digital object, so that Primo could fetch the data with a file splitter.

    • Allow MARC21 for Enduser Deposit Profiles

      By now, deposit profiles only support Dublin Core. In order to be congruent with existing MARC21 meta-data, deposit profiles should also support MARC21.

      • Universal Viewer: Hard Coded 'Attribution - All Rights Reserved'

        The Universal Viewer for Alma-D images has a hard coded 'Attribution - All Rights Reserved' statement that appears for each image the universal viewer is configured.
        The Attribution statement should only appear for those representations, a copyright statement is defined.

        • Display filesize for digital records

          Display the filesize information for Alma digital resources.

          Ideally this will display in both the ViewIt iframe in Primo beside the file name information.
          And display filesize from within the Alma Digital Viewer.

          • Reverse sort order option in ALMA for Digital Representation list displayed in Primo for a Bibliographic record

            If you attach several Digital Representations to one bibliographic record in ALMA, and each representation has one file attached, then all those Digital Representations (with their file) will be displayed in the U-Resolver display in Primo for the bibliographic record.
            In this scenario, there is currently no way in ALMA to alter the sort order of how the Digital Representations display in Primo. The default is alphabetical order, or numeric order. It would be useful to be able to choose reverse alphabetical or numeric order. This would allow a scenario where the year could be placed at the start of…

            • Alma –D display copyrights by default – Users are confused on what to do next – possible solution

              Displaying the copyright notice by default for Alma D records is a good step forward.

              But we have found our users are a bit confused on what they should do next when they see the notice.

              We would suggest the following would help:

              Move the ‘Close “option to the top of the screen (users don’t always move down the screen)

              Change the word from “Close” to “Accept”. This makes it a bit more obvious for our users on what to do next.

              • Allow multiple collections when adding a digital representation

                Allow multiple collections when adding a digital representation

                By now, when you add a digital representation, you can only choose and add one collection in the process (radio buttons instead of check boxes). If you want to have the digital representations attributed to different collections you need to add the representation afterwards by choosing Manage > Collections > Add Title. It would be very time saving if you could attribute multiple collections to a digital representation in the process of adding a digital representation.
