How can we improve Primo?

Make hyphenated compound searchable as closed compound

Hyphenated compounds are indexed for search as open compounds in Primo when "remove hyphens" option is enabled.

In German language it is also very common to concatenate them as closed compounds, thus creating a single word without spaces or hyphens. This variant should be indexed for search as well.

Example:
"Passagen-Werk" (hyphenated compound)
• at the moment also finds "Passagen Werk" (open compound) when "remove hyphens" option is enabled
• at the moment does not find "Passagenwerk" (closed compound) but should be able to find this!!

        Since quite some long time all possible catalogues ISBNs can be searched with or without hyphens - a relief for all the users. Why go backwards?

        This could also improve ISBN search in a catalog where a majority of records contain ISBNs without hyphens: As it is now, users pasting hyphenated ISBNs e.g. from Amazon come up empty, even if the work is in the catalog.
