Display perpetual coverage dates where no other coverage provided
We now have the ability to log current access dates and perpetual access dates on a portfolio. However there is no way to display the perpetual access dates in Alma or Primo unless looking at the coverage tab of the portfolio.
It would be good if there was an option to use the perpetual coverage dates as our display dates either by having an additional option for the local, global, local and global section, or just displaying those dates if local only is selected and there is nothing in the local section.
We have titles that we had current and perpetual coverage for , now publication has ceased and we only have access to our perpetual coverage. For this to display in Alma and Primo we have to update the local coverage dates to match our perpetual coverage dates.

I would really like to see both displayed: Global/Local dates and Perpetual Dates (if used) - not quite the same as the either/or suggestion above. Right now, when a librarian wants to weed print they need to either: go into portfolio records individually; do an Extended Export and view the Excel file. It would be so useful for that information to be shown right in Primo and in Alma search results - the Perpetual Date fields would be a more effective tool.
