  1. Ability to suppress the structure of a Digital Collection from Discovery (Primo)

    When a Collection is created in Alma the structure is visible in Discovery (Primo). We would like to suppress from Discovery the structure of a Collection in Alma. For example, we've created a Collection for which the structure is internal. We don't want to make it visible or accessible by users.

      Could a question exist for the number of researchers or scientists?
