  1. Allow direct linking from database records without impacting other records

    Database records in the database list behave as other records in Primo.
    You click on a post from the database list/brief display, the record opens itself, and from there you can click on the database link.

    While this makes sense for regular records, this is a bit unnecessary with database records:
    - not many more details are displayed on the detailed view.
    - when looking up a specific database, the only interesting information is the link itself.

    Many users reported that this extra click was annoying as what they want is to access the database. Some of them, especially within…

  2. 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).

  3. Add Library pre-filter to Primo VE Advanced Search

    It would be helpful if users could pre-scope their search to a particular library in the advanced search, rather than waiting to filter with the post-search facets.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Enhanced Hypertext Linking on locals fields to not be affected by pre-filters

    We have added enhanced hypertext linking on fields. However, when users click on these links, pre-filters make only searches for the same specific local field possible. This means that's if local field 31 shows an older version of a journal. When a user clicks on it. It will only search for local field 31 within all other local field 31s. Rather than the title or other fields. It would be helpful if pre-filters weren't affected by enhanced hypertext linking.

  10. An option for excluding search results from reference lists

    Sometimes search results are not quite relevant because the search keywords appear in enriched data - which I don't see on PNX - like bibliography (a reference list). Though it's not perfect Google scholar has a checkbox option 'include citations'. If Primo gives an option like that it would save the time of users searching more appropriate records.
