  1. Full integration of Syndetics enrichment content

    Syndetic Solutions enrichment content should be indexed in Primo, to aid the retrieval of books (especially by chapter titles in TOCs) and displayed inline in the new Primo UI. The acquisition of Ex Libris by Proquest should make this commercially easier to arrange, and it should be technically easier on the Primo "cloud" platform.

  2. Provide Statistics about use of Primo Central Collections

    It would be great if we can asses the usage of our licensed content via Primo. This will be valuable for our licensing decisions, as well it would be interesting for the hosts (Thomson Reuters, ProQuest...).

    For instance, we like to know:

    • how often users view metadata (i.e. open details tab) of records from ProQuest's Collection for Dissertations & Theses

    • what is the ratio of view metadata to request fulltexts from the collection?

    • which providers (Thomson Reuters, ProQuest, ...) are used most (view + download), what are the top collections of each provider?

  3. Holdingsfile should take into account the holdings of physical items

    In our Primo we have set up that only articles that you have access to is presented in the first result-list, but that you can remove this filter by checking the tick box on the left to include result that you do not have access to.

    Currently only the holdingf for electronic journals are taken into account. If the library has only the physical journal the article will not be part of the first search result. It will look like the library does not have this article, when the truth is that the user could get it in print.

    The…

  4. PCI to recognise the elements of a DOI to find the item

    Errors in search results are likely to occur when users are searching for DOIs from citations. DOIs are often formatted differently in citations or online but the user will naturally just copy-paste the DOI as it appears. If the user searches for this 10.1016/j.acalib.2008.10.014 in Primo Central - you find the article. However if you search for http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.acalib.2008.10.014 as it might be displayed in a citation, the article is not found. Anything preceding the DOI registry number (including doi:10.1016 for eg) will not result in a successful search.

  5. Adding 'Issue' as a new resource type in Primo Central

    Resource types used in Primo Central are limited to 23 (book, article, journal, image...) [See pdf "Primo Central Index Resource Types" in the Documentation Center].

    For digitized journal issues, the type in use is 'journal'. Archive collections like HathiTrust may contain tens of thousands of digitized journal issues; institutional repositories may also contain complete issues… This is finally confusing for end-users for who see issues labelled as journals and for whom filtering by resource type has become useless.

    Adding a 24th type 'Issue' for this material would be welcome! ‘Journal’ would thus only remain for real journal records.

  6. Combine permalinks with citations in Primo

    In Primo, the ability to copy citations is very useful, as is the ability to copy permalinks for individual records. When helping a patron via virtual reference (chat or email), it is cumbersome to, first, open and copy the citation, and second, open copy the permalink. It would make more sense to either hyperlink the citation with a stable link, or include the permalink after the citation in the same window.

  7. Add a pre-filter for Peer-reviewed Journals

    Our students would like the option to pre-filter their searches to articles published in Peer-reviewed journals. The current Primo configuration only allows this filter as a refining facet after searching.

  9. Numerical order for Search by list

    We would like the list search in Primo to show the results in numerical and not just alphabetical order.
    For example, for call numbers the number 101 should appear before the number 1000.
    Thank you and good day.

  10. Primo - "related titles sorted alphabetically by title" also for Primo direct / classic not VE

    In Primo VE one can have related titles sorted alphabetically by title
    This is particularly useful for multipart, journals, and in general complex record structure. Unfortunately, this is possible only in Primo VE, but not in classic Primo.
    It would be useful if the 2 versions of Primo were aligned also regarding this very useful feature.
