  1. Allow for integration with the PaperPile citation manager to Primo VE

  3. Allow requests or display request link without sign in

    Some items (for us, things in our storage system) should be request-able for all patrons regardless of status. It would be nice if there was a way to specify, in Alma or in Primo, that some locations should always display a request link, even if a user is not logged in. Ideally, users would be able to request from these locations without requiring a login.

  5. Exported citations to EndNote include a URL

    When you export citations from Primo to EndNote using the download option then you don't get a fulltext URL. This means you would have to save the pdf if available or add the link separately.

  6. Smarter grouping of Primo Central records

    If there is several records in Primo Central for the same article and all but one have the same metadata Primo should not choose to group on the one that differs.

  7. Put useful data into the RSS feeds created by Primo

    Technically RSS feeds created by Primo are working. But from a content perspective the feed is a mess.

    Let's start with the feed header:

    Primo delivers <rss version="2.0">
    The standard specification are at http://www.rssboard.org/rss-specification . It was published in August 2002. The RSS 2.0 specification is copyrighted by Harvard University and is frozen. Please use RFC 4287 also known as Atom.
    https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4287
    It is simply the better option for may reasons.
    http://www.intertwingly.net/wiki/pie/Rss20AndAtom10Compared

    The description of the feed is <title>Records from Primo</title> .
    As a user I would like to see my search terms in the feed title - like in…

  8. Add a prm-alma-mashup-after angular directive

    It's hard to work with the alma-mashup without the prm-alma-mashup-after directive and the lack of the directive is inconsistent with the rest of the markup in Primo.

  9. Ability to configure New Primo to force patrons to sign in

    In the classic Primo, we were able to configure force login using the javascript in the KB Article https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Knowledge_Articles/How_to_configure_Primo_to_force_patrons_to_sign_in

    The KB article is for classic UI only.

    Due to security, we need to force user login.

  10. OAI Pipe date options to facilitate CONTENTdm automated harvesting

    We would like our pipe that harvests the OAI feed from CONTENTdm to run automatically either weekly or monthly.

    However it is a known bug with CONTENTdm that if the collection is large, and if a small date range is used with the OAI data feed, then the process is likely to hang.The current workaround with Ex Libris is to manually set the start date to 100 years ago, and then run the pipe.

    The enhancement I would like is enhancing the pipe configuration to either add

    a.) A checkbox which adds the option of not automatically updating the start…

  11. Allow for consistant customizations in the new UI

    The open discovery of the new UI allows customers to customize the new UI, extend its functionalities, and connect Primo with external services.
    This framework can offer an important added value to institutions; it can enable them to respond to specific needs of their user community.
    We want to implement extensions for functionalities like:
    • Offer a button “report a problem” that allows a user to report a broken link or another problem with a specific source he found. The form sends this message to our helpdesk, together with useful debug info like : is the user on or off…

  12. Getit2 of PrimoCentral records lists irrelevant local resources (missing date check)

    Records from Primo Central have a getIt2-Tab which lists print resources from local catalog for an article. The problem is that the publication date of the article and the listed resources do not match and therefore cause confusion. Think of an current article from a Journal and you get old volumes suggested from the library. Only print resources containing the article should be listed.
    In other words: The function would be usable if the getit2 lists print resources with the same publication date.

    Suppressing the get-it tab according to the documentation (http://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Knowledge_Articles/Remove_GetIT!_Tab_When_No_Print_Version%2C_Only_Electronic_Records_from_Alma) has no effect.

    The issues were…

  13. Index Ebsco API "abstract" Results so they don't appear in Primo "Full-Text" Results

    All Primo results from the EBSCO API are searched and displayed "on the fly," and there's no option to sort the abstract-only content from full-text in Primo results.

    So even though our default in Primo is to display ONLY "full text" results -- Primo is returning EBSCO "abstract only" or "may be full text" links in our Full-Text searches. Our users are confused, and call us wondering why they don't have full-text access in our Primo full-text search results.

    Finding a way to sort the Ebsco abstract-only content from the full-text content, so it's working correctly within the Primo search…

  14. Create link for patron to report issue with Primo Central Record

    This idea comes from a ticket submitted by a professor last week regarding a journal article resource that was marked as "peer reviewed" in PCI incorrectly. She reported it to us and we reported it to ExLibris, but it would seem more efficient to include a link that could report the problem directly to ExLibris for PCI content. I imagine something similar to the "report an issue" link found in google books: https://www.screencast.com/t/BdLZo2tR6D

  15. • Records without a date at the bottom of results list when sorting on date oldest

    At this moment, the sort option “Date oldest” displays the records without a date on top of the results list. This is confusing and not relevant for users; when there are several records without a Creation Date they probably conclude that sorting on date oldest doesn’t work. Our request is to display the records without a date always at the bottom of the results list when a sort option on date is used (thus as well for date oldest as for date newest)

    Hi all,

    This is to update that this is currently not planned to be developed. We might evaluate it again in the future.

    Therefore we are removing the "Under review" status for now.


    Best regards,

    Yael.

  16. Add the 'until' argument to OAI-PMH pipe configuration

    When creating a pipe to harvest using OAI, we can currently set the 'from' date but not an 'until' date. When harvesting from a large repository, this means we have to collect the whole set in one go - which may be a problem for Primo and/or the repository. We would prefer to process, say, three months data at a time.

  17. Create a Tableau Web Data Connector for Primo Analytics

    Primo Analytics users who also use Tableau would benefit from a generic Tableau Web Data Connector (WDC) available via a Primo Integrations page to integrate Primo Analytics into Tableau vizes via the Ex Libris API.
    The WDC could generate report-specific field structure based on the schema/xsd section of the API report XML, making the addition of Primo Analytics report data to Tableau as easy opening an Excel spreadsheet.
    Since I do not have Primo, I have not been able to test these as I did with Alma, but this idea is based on the assumption that Primo Analytics reports API…

    Today the message "All items checked out from ..." is shown both for items on loan and items with process status "Missing" in Aleph. We would like to have different messages reflecting the real process status of he item.
