Resource types used in Primo Central are limited to 23 (book, article, journal, image...) [See pdf "Primo Central Index Resource Types" in the Documentation Center].
For digitized journal issues, the type in use is 'journal'. Archive collections like HathiTrust may contain tens of thousands of digitized journal issues; institutional repositories may also contain complete issues… This is finally confusing for end-users for who see issues labelled as journals and for whom filtering by resource type has become useless.
Adding a 24th type 'Issue' for this material would be welcome! ‘Journal’ would thus only remain for real journal records.80 votes
Right now in Primo, if you have items checked out at your library, you can't do anything with them in the UI. You can't send to RefWorks, email, etc. Users would like to be able to send these items to citation management tools and they currently can’t do that. From the loan list, there is no link back to the full record.67 votes
At this moment, the sort option “Date oldest” displays the records without a date on top of the results list. This is confusing and not relevant for users; when there are several records without a Creation Date they probably conclude that sorting on date oldest doesn’t work. Our request is to display the records without a date always at the bottom of the results list when a sort option on date is used (thus as well for date oldest as for date newest)51 votes
It would be great if would could provide an option to export to excel for results saved in e-shelf46 votes
Unfortunately, and I've noticed this with other titles in Primo, e.g. Begg Economics, the latest editions of titles are hidden in the 'View x versions' area of Primo while the earliest edition is displayed in the search results. It would be better perhaps if the latest edition displayed with the option to view earlier editions under the 'View x versions' feature.58 votes
At this moment, lateral links are available OTB for authors and subjects; and can be implemented for local fields.
We ‘d like lateral linking to be a standard option for more fields like : ispartof, relation and unititle.
Use case is a series link in tab Details.134 votes
A version control system for back office configuration tables, pipes, normalization rules etc.
For files like Custom HTML, CSS, JS, PDS etc. we can manage change history and revert to older versions by using version control systems like Git, Subversion etc. For configuration managed via the web back office and database this is not possible, but it is a vital feature of professional system management. This will become more important in a full SaaS environment.58 votes
Currently, Hathi Trust records appear to have a full-text available label whether they are available in full-text or they are restricted to search only. In Summon restricted items in Hathi Trust are labeled citation online in order to not give the user a false expectation that the item would be available. I would like Primo to treat Hathi Trust records the same way.96 votes
Currently the Review content type in Primo / Primo Central seems to contain both Book Reviews such as
and Review Articles such as
It would be better if these were in separate content types.9 votes
