  1. Indent newspaper search under Source Type limiters

    Indent the "Newspapers search" link under the "Source Type" limiter to bring it in line with the other listed source types (e.g. Articles, Reivews, Books, etc.).

    As it currently displays, without being indented, it appears that all of the source types listed below are sub-sets of the Newspapers search.

  2. Resultados de la búsqueda por índices

    La página de resultados de la búsqueda por indices cuando el número de resultados es mayor de 20, no muestra el número de resultados sino que pone 20+. Para saber el múmero de resultados tienes que clickear y pasar a la siguiente pantalla. La propuesta de mejora es que mostrase el número de resultados desde la primera pantalla de respuesta.
    Ejemplo: https://fama.us.es/discovery/browse?vid=34CBUA_US:VU1&browseQuery=historia%20de%20espa%C3%B1a&browseScope=subject.1&innerPnxIndex=-1&numOfUsedTerms=-1&fn=BrowseSearch

  4. Add Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) content to Primo Central Index

    Could you work with Centre for Economic Policy Research to add metadata for their publications to Primo Central Index? This is a critical source for working papers for economists. Access to their content requires a subscription. Currently, there is an Alma CZ collection with a very small subset of the CEPR's publications.I have not been able to find a collection in Primo Central Index to turn on for this publisher.

  6. Resource recommender

    Currently there isn’t any option to order resources other than alphabetically for the resource recommender.

    We have control over the order that the ‘Types’ of resources display by (e.g. Databases, People, Websites …), but as all of our resources are databases, we are limited to the default sort.

    Would like more flexibility on this.

  7. pin password

    Add the ability to control what fields display in the My Library Card | Update PIN / Password box dependent upon whether the User is an Internal or External user in Alma. Showing external users the option to change their password is confusing as their password is maintained outside of Primo/Alma.

  9. In Primo VE, in the Get It service in full record display

    In Primo VE, in the Get It service in full record display add real-time availability summary, for example: (4 copies, 1 available, 0 requests) to the OTB top level display for each Location.
    Currently, the user has to click on the Location to see availability information.
    This development would bring VE in step with Primo.

  11. Barcode search in Primo

    It would be extremely helpful it we could search Primo VE by item barcode. We often want to quickly locate a bib record in Primo and scanning a barcode is the simplest and quickest search.

  12. Make it easier to copy a call number

    Please make it easier to copy the call number from a holdings record in primo.

    The design of the holdings info in Primo prevents users from easily selecting/copying the call number. Since the holdings info is a link, clicking and dragging from left to right makes it impossible to select the call number. It is possible to click and drag from right to left (not intuitive for LTR languages), or to click through to the item and then select the call number (not discoverable).

    See linked video for an illustration of the problem.

  13. Primo VE: add option to mark all Display Fields for Search and Facet

    Primo VE has a standard out of the box mapping of Display Fields, Search Fields and Facets (see https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Product_Documentation/020Primo_VE/050Other_Configuration/Mapping_to_the_Display%2C_Facets%2C_and_Search_Sections_in_the_Primo_VE_Record). Customers cannot adapt or create Search fields and Facets. This is only possible now for Local Fields. I don't understand why this is not possible. Please provide options to mark Display Fields for Search and Facet and to create Search Fields and Facets, just like for Local Fields.

  14. Allow custom "Username" and "Password" labels when using multiple modes of authentication

    For institutions using multiple modes of authentication (such as LDAP for externally-managed users and Alma for internally-managed users), it is not currently possible to customize the "Username" and "Password" labels to have custom labels display for each authentication method. The "User Login" code table only provides one field for customizing the username or password, which displays for all methods of authentication. It would be more helpful to all users (and particularly internally-managed users) if we could specify on the login page which information users should enter as their "username" and "password."

  15. Changing the language in Primo should also update the preferred language in Alma

    We have a mix of users with different languages at our university, but we cannot get a reliable language setting from the SIS feed. Therefore it is important that the users can edit the language preference themself to get letters from the library in the correct language.

    Today, changing the language in Primo only changes the interface language in Primo, but we would like it to also update the preferred language in Alma.

  16. My Favorites: while pinning item, allow user to choose label

    When a user pins an item to My Favorites from the search results or detail view, the item goes to My Favorites without a label. Users would like to choose the label at the time they pin it.

    Otherwise, they have to pin things, then go into My Favorites and go through all the things they just pinned a second time. By this time the user may not recall the specific reason they pinned it. We would like My Favorites to work similar to Pinterest and other similar tools, where the user can assign a tag/label as they are pinning,…

  17. Improve logic for Consortial/AFN and ILL requests

    If all holdings across the Network Zone (NZ) are unavailable, we want to be able to suppress the option to place a Consortial loan request (ie. a resource sharing request in an automated fulfillment network), thus directing the user to ILL.

  18. Enhance Primo Analytics Facet Usage by expanding Facet Values

    Primo Analytics currently only provides data on Facet Values for two Facet Types: Top Level and Resource Type, with data such as Available in Library, Available Online, Articles, Books, etc.
    This granular level of data on user behavior is very valuable and influences our decision making for both our services and system configuration.
    It would be wonderful to have this extended also to other Facet Types, including Creation Date, Collection, Author, Topic, New Records, and Journal.

  19. "Search within results"

    We would like to propose a "Search within results" option for Primo. "Search within results" would be a keyword search across all fields present in a user's results list. This is an option offered in common databases, such as Web of Science, so it is something users expect. We feel this search function would increase Primo's usability particularly for inexperienced users.

  20. Make Alma link resolver compatible with EndNote's "Find Full Text" feature

    EndNote offers a "Find Full Text" feature that allows users to locate full text for citations saved to their library. The feature can be configured to work with your institution's link resolver. However, according to EndNote customer support, the Alma link resolver is not currently compatible with this feature. This enhancement would allow Alma customers to locate full text for EndNote citations via openURL.
