  1. Suppressing Illiad ILL linking for books that are available through a local Fulfillment Network

    Illiad linking (the “Interlibrary Loan” link listed under “How to get it”) is appearing for books that are available through our local Fulfillment Network (link listed under "Get It From Other Institutions"). If a book is available through the Fullfillment Network, there's no need for additional interlibrary loan linking to appear.

  2. Display Network Zone licenses in Primo VE

    Hello.

    Our consortium has a Network Zone and 14 Institution Zones with Primo VE. I manage the shared electronic collections in the NZ. I created a license in the NZ and attached it to an NZ electronic collection. Unfortunately when a user clicks on the "Show License" button in Primo VE the terms of the license do not display. (IZ licenses display fine in VE.) Here's a google doc of my testing with screenshots: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xtUlfFZeF4h4sy6dqv_6TW8vbJ1w80jJsMKmJK0D22c/edit?usp=sharing

    I reported the issue in Salesforce 00727735 (not published) and the response from Exlibris is "Thank you for reporting this issue with the license terms.…

  3. Enable renewal of interlibrary loans via My Library Account

    It is confusing to users that they can renew some items on loan to them via My Library Account, but not inter-library loans. We would like a configurable Renew option available for inter-library loans in My Library Account. If a user clicked this option, the request for renewal from the user would populate a tasklist in Alma for resource sharing staff to action. If staff proceed to request a renewal from the lending partner, the workflow should connect so that the response and the updated due date flows back through to My Library Account. Currently all renewal requests for interlibrary…

  4. Enable users to send an enquiry about an existing resource sharing request from My Library Account to a tasklist in Alma

    Currently if users have an enquiry about their resource sharing request they have to contact us separately via email or phone. Since they can see their current requests in My Library Account, it would be great if they could click on an option e.g. 'Send an enquiry about this request' in My Library Account, enter in their query, and Submit. This would then populate a tasklist in Alma (similar to Notes functionality in Leganto/Alma) that resource sharing staff could action and reply to. This would bring this communication workflow into Alma.

  5. Restrict "Send Record via Email" to logged in users only in Primo VE

    Currently anyone can send record information via the "Send Record via Email" option in the brief or full record display. This is a spam risk. Sending e-mail should be restricted to logged-in users only.

  6. Different identification system depending on the view

    In our university we have a pending important problem to solve:
    - In order to solve some Primo cases in which the user has to be identified, Exlibris technicians ask us for credentials to be able to analyze and solve the cases but logically, for security reasons, we should not give our personal credentials to anyone.
    - Our user authentication is through SAML so all of our users are external in Alma.


    • The Systems Department of our university requires that in order to create a user in the system (external to Alma), the responsibility for that account must rest with…

  7. location displayed for resources sharing

    Do not display the resource sharing link for item that do not circulate. This is super confusing for our students. The request link does not display in the other scopes, but cannot seem to be turned off for resources sharing. Our students are requesting items from our sister college that do not circulate.

  8. location displayed for resources sharing

    Display location field in resource sharing records for other institutions. This will alert us if an item does not cirulate. Of course it woudl be better if non circulating items did not display the resources sharing link (I will open a request for this too), but at least listing the location will help us tell our students why their request was cancelled.

  9. In Primo VE and in consortial Alma setup, display print and electronic inventory even if dedupe/frbr is enabled

    In a consortial Alma setup with a Network Zone and with Primo VE, our consortia has noticed that if an Institution Zone (IZ) has enabled dedupe/frbr in a Primo View and there is print and electronic inventory for a title, the print inventory of other IZ’s is completely hidden and only the electronic displays.

    See “enabled dedupe frbr1.png” https://wrlc-gwu.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?query=any,contains,doing%20bayesian%20data%20analysis%20a%20tutorial%20with%20r%20jags%20and%20stan&tab=WRLCPMyInstAll&searchscope=WRLCPMyInstAll&vid=01WRLCGWA:test&offset=0

    As you can see in “enabled dedupe frbr2.png” only the electronic inventory displays.
    https://wrlc-gwu.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/permalink/01WRLC_GWA/1b1hkge/alma9912376416404101

    Compare with an IZ in the same consortia which has disabled dedupe/frbr to prove that physical inventory exists.

  10. Allow requestors to see new requested item due date from My Requests

    In the My Requests area of my Library Card, the requestor does not see the new due date of the requested item, only that the request is “Not started. Place in queue is _”. It would helpful for the requestor to be able to see the due date, even if it isn't guaranteed that the item will be returned by the patron who has it on that date. Wording could be: "Currently on loan with a due date of [ ]. Your request is no. [ ] in queue.".

  11. Localize Collection Discovery for libraries of an Alma institution

    For a given library in an Alma institution, the Alma collections associated to this library should only appear in the Collection Discovery page and on the records of items belonging to this collection, if the library is associated to the Primo view (in the "Primo view mapped into Alma libraries" mapping table).

    In the current situation, all the collections of any library of the Alma institution are visible, even if the Primo view is limited to one or some libraries in the institution.

  12. DDA portfolios should be presented as Online Preview Available or something else

    DDA portfolios (e.g. ProQuest E-book Preview) should be presented as Online Preview Available or something distinguishable that the institution can customize. Patrons are often confused.

  13. Primo Saved Search email - link color setting

    Improve color customization of Saved Search Email Alerts

    The February 2020 Primo feature does not allow us to customize the link text in the header (used for the terms of the saved search), which leads to contrast issues.

    Similar to the "Unsubscribe" customization, there should be a similar component to set the color of link text in the header.

  14. Add ability to select multiple options on Advanced Search drop down menus in Primo VE

    It is not currently possible to select multiple options on an Advanced Search drop down menu is Primo VE (ex: Material Type, Language); this functionality would be very helpful for users who wish to do more precise searching -- especially since Primo VE lacks the functionality of combining search results. This functionality is the HTML select multiple attribute (https://www.w3schools.com/tags/attselectmultiple.asp)

  15. showPnx page as XML

    In the classic UI, if you added the parameter showPnx=true, in the address bar, to the URL of a record's full display, you were able to get an XML file with the PNX version of the record. In the NUI, on the contrary, the same parameter takes you to a web page containing the PNX record in a textarea.
    The XML view of the PNX record was very much easier to manage: colouring of tags, open/close section as well as you need them, etc.
    Why did you change this behaviour for worse?
    Could we get back the XML version of…

  16. Request: Please make it possible to find a match only by a title in Alma linkresolver

    What I want is to make Alma link resolver find matches by a title. Now, Alma linker resolver is returning results only when ISSN/ISBN is given. And, a lot of CJK titles don't have ISSN/ISBN so that there are many occasions when a subscribed CJK portfolio without an identifier is not found in Primo service page. Unlike Alma link resolver, 360 link resolver supports title searching. This is the example of 360 link. The URL below doesn't contain ISSN information either but, it finds the correct match.

    360 Link resolver:
    http://kg6wg8ak8z.scholar.serialssolutions.com/?sid=google&aulast=이영호&atitle=한국학 연구의 동향과'동아시아 한국학'&title=한국학연구&volume=15&date=2006&spage=9

  17. Keep chosen UI language after login

    At the moment, following login, the Primo UI changes to either

    a) preferred UI user language as indicated in the user preferences, or

    b) default language

    This leads to odd situations, for example,


    • User changes UI (from German) to English -> everything is now in English


    • Does a search etc etc -> still in English


    • Logs in - Login etc window in English


    • After successful login, the user is returned to Primo... but in German!


    This is inexplicable for the user, and unless they know about preferences, and where to set them, it happens every time.

    Note to change preferences…

  18. Add DOI and PMID to Advanced Search Indexes in Primo VE

    DOI and PMID searching can be augmented for enhancement in keyword searching in Primo VE, so that these identifiers can be searches as keywords. It would be very helpful to our researchers to be able to more efficiently and exactly search within Advanced Search fields for DOI and PMID. These fields can be searched within unique fields in the Citation Linker, so the indexes exist, but they are not available for inclusion in Advanced Search settings. We would like to be able to add DOI and PMID as options in Advanced Search settings in Primo VE.
