  2. Improve filtering when searching in Journals

    When we try to filter by year for a journal with multiple locations, it goes to a screen that doesn't contain the filtered year. The search can end up looping back and forth, and one ends up having to click to find more items rather than getting to the year requested. Here is a document describing the situation, with screen shots:

    I'm attaching the file in Word in case the shared document cannot be accessed. Thank you!

  3. Make users more aware of results found in other search profile slots/ tabs

    In most Primos, users can search in different search profile slots (Primo VE) or tabs (Primo with a BO), e.g. Library Catalogue, PCI, Everything. However, our users do not switch a lot between the different slots/tabs. The majority performs the whole session in the same slot/tab. In order to make the users more aware of the different slot/tabs and the different content in them, we suggest that on top of the results list the number of results in every defined slot/tab should be displayed. The displayed information should be a link, so that the users can easily switch to the…

  4. Make citation trail available in the pinned/saved records list and in full records accessed from the saved records list.

    Currently when a user pins or saves an article that has a citation trail, the citation trail does not display in the saved/pinned titles list. When the user accesses the full record from their saved records list the citations trail does not display in the full record either. This is problematic for researchers etc. who may save a number of records without realizing they will lose access to the citation trail. Please make the citations trail available in the saved records list and in full records accessed from the saved records list.

  5. Reinstate asterisk wild card search

    We used to be able to use an asterisk (*) for searching in advanced search combined with other pre-search filters such as language or material type. This was great for finding all titles in a particular language or all titles in a particular format. This has been removed. Please bring it back!

  7. Edit Labels of Primo Saved Items

    It would be good to change the text of an existing label(s) used on saved items.

    For instance to be able to change a label from "ethics" to "research ethics".

  8. have citations/cited by appear at cluster level record

    The Citation Trail feature is great, but I'm afraid many users will miss it because they click on an item in search results that is a merge record for a "FRBR" cluster of articles from different sources. The citation/cited by doesn't apear on those. Since the user can get to the resources from the Online tab in this record, they are not likely to click on View All Versions. This is such a cool feature it's a shame to miss it, and it's the article that gets cited, not a particular aggregator's version of it.

  9. Would it be possible to add an icon or facet in the search filters for open source?

    I am trying to encourage the use and teach with open source materials. If these materials could be easy to spot and/or sorted for it would greatly facilitate their use and knowledge that they exist.

  10. Combine search sets

    Please create the ability to combine active search set results in Primo VE.

    For instance:
    I performed an Advanced search for author stern and keyword difficult. (Search set 1)

    I then perform a search for author stern and libraries. (Search set 2)

    I would like to be able to say in Search History: (search set 1) not (search set 2)

    I do not see a way to use previous search strings to create more complex strategic combinations.

    (This obviously becomes more important as I add additional lines of searches that would require various combinations.)

  11. e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting

    e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting. There is no indication available and when copying large amounts of items it is unclear as to whether they have been added to the clipboard or not so the user cannot tell when it is time to paste.

  13. Subject words also in brief display

    We would like to have the option to show subject words in the brief display mode. This would help users determine if hits are relevant faster.

  14. Change the record ID methods for Tags and Basket

    For Tags and Basket, the records ID is the dedupmrg number for merged records. We want to use the individual record ID for the group.
    This will ensure that records will allways be pointing on the right record even the all records are deleted and reloaded. The dedupmrg number is different whe we reload all records.

  16. different treatment/table would be allowed for different citation style.

    Different treatment/table would be allowed for different citation formats. Because different citation format require different elements for citation.
    For example, currently, the series titles is mapping in citation mapping table. However, not all citation style require this field.

    Chicago, the series title, if exists, may choose to include in the citation. Disable the series title means that series title will be missing for all citations in Chicago format. If we don't disable the series titles mapping, the citation output of APA & MLA are incorrect. Allow different citation mapping table with different citation style would improve the citation output result.

  18. BX "Hot articles" is not (yet) in the NUI

    It's not the most used function, but still had a respectable 5'000 hits in 2017. We'd like to have it when we change to the NUI in a few weeks, but apparently, it is not yet planned.

  19. User management - Admin User can make a default "Patron has institutional record" as "Yes" or "No"

    There is no possibility for an Admin User to set up the external or internal user account to be a default value (in "Patron has institutional record" as "Yes" or "No"). As we mostly create user accounts for our organization, we would like to have "Yes" as a default value. The settings update is currently considered as enhancement.

  20. Show availability of ER thanks to IP analysis

    Primo could analyse the IP address of the PC accessing Primo in order to determine whether or not a electronic resource is available or not.
    This would take into account the actual IP address and not the hypothetical one via campus management.
    No idea if this is technically feasable.
    It would diminish the frustration of patrons who click on electronic resources shown as available but the destination page wants 35 dollars to access the resource (because the patron is in the wrong IP range).
