  2. marcit loads of e-journals should have a peer-reviewed/open-access subfield

    Since there is no sfx ideas exchange, I will post this idea here since there is no trigger/flag for open access or peer-reviewed as part of the MARCIt profile. This would be helpful for journal loads. Seems to me that if you're sitting on the article data, you might be able to flag the journal record within the marcit profile, no?

    Thanks,
    Allen

  4. Filter out the default search result titles with the status "Citation Available" which don't have full text available under PCI

    We expect the default search results of PCI contain full text titles only. But we found there are result titles which don't have full text with the status "citation available" (e.g. in the collection RAMBI, http://www.lib.ouhk.edu.hk/primo-explore/fulldisplay?docid=TN_rambi000465453&context=PC&vid=ouhk&lang=en_US&search_scope=pc_gs_ebook_ebsco_scope&adaptor=primo_central_multiple_fe&tab=pga_tab&query=any,contains,RAMBI&sortby=rank&facet=domain,include,RAMBI%20-%20%D7%A8%D7%9E%D7%91%27%27%D7%99&offset=0). We hope the no-full-text titles be filtered out.

  5. Embed Advanced Search on Browse/Journal search pages

    We have had requests to include the Advanced Search on the Browse and A-Z pages. If one wants to run an Advanced Search one has to return to a new (basic search) search and then click Advanced Search. I had submitted a SF case but the response was that this is not a functionality available in Primo. We believe this would improve usability.

  6. Active Links in Journal Record when Searching in Journals

    Currently when you search for a journal in a general search the full record will have links to the author, subject heading, etc. When you use the actual Journal Search this links are not available. It would be nice to have active links in this record as well.

  8. Show "multiple sources" in PCI records, instead of hiding the field

    When more sources provide PCI with the description for the same bibliographic entity, in Primo Details tab no source is specified.
    If the library doesn't have access to all the involved sources, the field is missing and no "View all versions" link is available.
    A compromise could be to always show Source: multiple sources or something like that, instead of totally suppressing the field.

  10. Sorting in My Bookshelf

    Currently My Bookshelf doesn't offer any functionality to allow you to order items.

    It would be useful to be able to order items e.g. by Title, Author, Added, Type etc.

  11. Why is ExL using a large X as a navigation tool in the new UI?

    When I first came across this X, I thought it was a coding fault. It does not seem (to me) intuitive that you should click on it to return to the previous screen. A small x on the top RH corner of the open window would make more sense.

  15. Ability to restrict number of characters displayed in Description field

    In the Detailed Results, it would be good to have the ability to configure the Description field so that it displays only a certain number of characters by default, while also allowing users to expand the field to get the full description (similar to the way the Summary field in Syndetics Unbound works).

  16. Primo New UI - EBSCO API - filter out no-full-text Item

    We have set up a mixed search results of Primo PCI and EBSCO API. In the Primo new UI, The search results are supposed to show only full-text available materials. But we found some result items of EBCSO API are without full-text. We would like to the results items without full-text from EBSCO API be removed in the new UI in a full-text search while the no-full-text item be shown after clicked "Expand beyond library collections" . See the attachment "PCI&EBSCIAPIMixingProblem.docx" for details

    There should be a link to the record from the to the list of requests in myAccount. At the moment there ist only a link to the details of the request (screenshot attached), and a user is forced to search the title again.

  20. Primo New UI : Allow OTB ordering of full record display sections

    The New UI does not allow libraries to easily configure the order of the sections in the full record display.
    We would like an Out of the Box solution to re-order the full record display.

    For example: We would like to move the ViewIt section to the top, and move the Actions sections to sit after the Details section.
