  1. Browse tab results display: don't follow creator immediately by publication date

    In the results display on Browse tab for LC call number searches, the creator (1XX) is (almost) immediately followed by the publication date. (There's a space between the two fields). In cases where the 1XX field ends with an open-ended date, it looks like the publication year is a death date.

    The attached file has an example which shows:
    Financing consumer sales ... [title]
    Geva, Benjamin, 1946- 1984 [authority (1xx) date of publication]

    The work was published in 1984, I was in a meeting with Geva last month so he's clearly still alive. The current display is misleading and could…

  2. Primo alerts - user defined frequency and digest options

    Based on user suggestions, it would be helpful if, when users set themselves an alert for a saved search, they could choose the frequency with which these came through.

    Some users might want them more/less than weekly.

    Also, perhaps users could also choose to receive the alerts in a digest form: with the update for every search bundled into one email.

  3. Ability to use other fields instead of interface name for View Online fields

    We are looking to change the display of the "View Online" space. At the moment, if a resource does not have an Interface name, it displays "view full text". I would like to suggest to have the ability to use the Electronic Portfolio name as an option.

    Reasoning behind this: We have hundreds of vendors as well as use Ebsconet as our subscription manager. It is clunky to go in to every single vendor just to add an Interface name.

  4. Display order of portfolio at Catalogue (can we prioritize the links to be displayed?)

    For title with multiple portfolios, come from different platforms, I wonder if there is any way to prioritize the links according to our needs, e.g.

    Criteria 1: portfolio with access to the current issues will be displayed first, instead of the portfolio with closed holdings.

    Criteria 2: purchase portfolio will be displayed before the free access portfolios

    Criteria 3: platform with less broken link reports received will be displayed before the one with more broken link reports

  6. Configure collection discovery to display in shelflist order

    We are using Collection Discovery to create new books browsing for our top subject areas but it would be great if they could display in shelflist order so like books group together.
    What we really want is a low maintenance bookshelf browse feature which auto populates with new resources and removes the old. Anyway, display in LCC or some shelflist order would be good, even if the call number is hidden (because many are ebooks and it might confuse patrons).

  7. Disable cancel request button in Primo

    Stop our patrons from being able to 'cancel' a specific type of request within their account profile in Primo. We need to disable the cancel request button for Digitization request

  8. Make links in Collection descriptions appear as hypertext

    In Alma Digital collections, you can put a bunch of text in a collection description, but URLs always appear as plain text in Primo.

  9. Allow the view code field to be editable

    To enable seamless updates to the Primo interface it would be useful for the Code for the view to be editable.

    This would allow you to continue to use the same public address for your Primo instance, but switch the view to a new one by changing the code in the Back Office. For example, it would allow you to switch from a the current live view to a new one.

    Currently the field cannot be edited (see screenshot).

  10. "Show Source Record" to users with Alma Staff Role only

    Although we can now display the MARC record in the UI using the "Show source records" we feel this feature is only really useful for Library staff and not for the vast majority of users who will not find it useful and will just add clutter to the full record for the majority. Ideally we would like the "Show source records" to be linked to the Alma library staff role so it will only display when our library staff are logged into Primo.

    Currently the only option to display this link in the UI is to have it appear for…

  11. Opening results in a new tab - stop it defaulting to the top of the list

    In the new Library Search, every time I open a search result in a new tab, the list of results resets to the top of the list. This is very annoying, especially if i have already had to load 3 or more pages of results.

  12. Stop matching records with 020 subfield z

    As part of a matching process Primo checks the 020 subfield z, which in MARC format is used for Canceled/invalid ISBN, to display two records as related. That means Primo shows the holdings of the "related" record in the full display of the first record. For a user the holdings will be on the record with invalid ISBN. Very confusing. We've been adviced to delete the ISBN in 020 z or move it to 776, which is a very bad solution. I advice ExLibris to get rid of this solution and not violate the standards of MARC.

  13. Option for linking Collection details page instead of Collection Lobby

    Simple search results on Primo NUI for Digital collections shows Title and View the collection link only, which get us its collection lobby page directly. Please give us an option that enables to check the collection's metadata(bib) on its Details page and then the user can move to the collection lobby by clicking the link like E-resources.

  14. The number of default thumbnails of each tile on Primo Collection Lobby

    If I do not define any image files, the system displays the first four images found in the collection's sub-collections and items. It looks much too complicated so it would be great if the institution can fix the number of default thumbnails in a tile(e.g. 4 -> 1), without defining an image file on Discovery tab or General tab.

  15. Please provide an option to search items from sub-collections together

    Please provide an option to search items from sub-collections together. Now users only can search the items in the current collection but usually the items in sub-collections are also relevant result for the search query. Some may think they can just go back to the basic search page and search again but the others would think it's uncomfortable because they are already familiar with Windows File search function.

  16. Use new copyright statements-digital in Primo display for representations

    At present a copyright symbol automatically displays in the public notes field for representations in Primo View Online section. This is not an appropriate place for the copyright symbol: See idea https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/41256403-remove-copyright-symbol-from-alma-representation-p

    Now that there are new rights statements for use in Alma digital representations, these should be considered as an optional display element in Primo.

    Rather than show the entire text, just the image if one exists plus the name of the statement eg "Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0)" with translation options for multi-language sites.

  17. Browse shelf only to display electronic material

    Nowadays, browse Shelf Configuration dialog box, can be configurated with one of the following options:
    - Browse Bibliographic Headings – if you want to display both physical and electronic material in Browse Shelf.
    - Browse Shelf Listing – if you want to display physical items only in Browse Shelf. This is the default option.

    I ask for a new option to display only electronic material, this is useful for those libraries that not use a standard classification system being that the physical browse shelf is a disaster.
