  1. Display item(s) cost in patron loan letters or My Account to show savings.

    We'd like to be able to let patrons know how much money they saved by using the library as opposed to paying for books themselves. To do this, we'd like to be able to display item cost information (such as from the POL in Alma) for items loaned either in the Loan Letter or in the patron's account.

  2. Add the PNX creator field to records in the Collection Discovery interface

    The brief display of the items records in the Collection Discovery interface contains only the document type and the document title, We propose to add at least the creator PNX field to give the user more information about the document without having to open the full display. Ideally, we would like to be able to customize whjch fields appear in the brief display as we already do for the brief display in the result list.

  3. Display multi-lingual values in facets in a consistent order

    Currently, same values in different languages in multi-lingual facets (topic, author) appear randomly.

    We suggest to create a consistent language order independent of the sort by_size configuration option, so that the values in these facets will be displayed by the determined order. For example, if the order will be: Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, Cyrillic - the values will always be displayed by this same language order.

    See example image provided for the following search:
    https://haifa-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/search?query=any,contains,gibran%20kahlil&tab=defaulttab&searchscope=booksandmore&vid=HAU&lang=en_US

    We are suggesting that for the facets set by size in the View, the same value in all languages will be grouped…

  4. Detailed Results in-view counter

    Primo system allows for viewing detailed results of a given search, one at a time. Navigation through the results is being done using the Arrow icons of the side of the display (picture attached).

    Currently there is no option to know your current position on a line of numerous results.

    It would be useful to be able to view a counter next to the arrow icons which will indicate my current position on the results line, for example "Result 5 out of 17". Attached is an example of that feature in the ALEPH interface.

    Thank you.

  5. Create a "Resources I can access" item under the Show Only left hand side menu.

    Create a "Resources I can access" filter item under the Show Only left hand side menu. This would use the clients logged in group to apply a filter to search results to only show those that they can actually access with their login group. I am sure you can think of a better label for the filter. The principle is the same as "Full Text Online" - most of the time clients want to be able to get to the items they can access straight away as efficiently as possible - this is not an issue most of the time…

  6. The number of default thumbnails of each tile on Primo Collection Lobby

    If I do not define any image files, the system displays the first four images found in the collection's sub-collections and items. It looks much too complicated so it would be great if the institution can fix the number of default thumbnails in a tile(e.g. 4 -> 1), without defining an image file on Discovery tab or General tab.

  7. The list of languages to be shown in their original characters (Advanced search option))

    Currently the display language of the list of target records' languages is subject to change. There is no option to customize it on Primo BO, but it would be great if we can show them in their original characters.

  8. Display all blocks and patron limits in Primo My Account

    The My Account page in Primo only displays blocks of the blocks tab in the Alma user details page so that a patron who logs in Primo and unsuccessfully attemps to renew an item from the library isn’t notified about blocks that are applied based on patron limits/ library-definied rules such as maximum cash limit. The My Account page should display all blocks.

  9. Overdue notices from Alma in Primo

    In the mouse-over appearing in My loans above ‘not renewable’ a user sees all overdue notices that he/she has received for that specific item.
    For instance when the user gets the fourth overdue notice he/she also sees the third and the second one in the small mouse-over text.

    For a better readability we’d like only the most recent notice to appear in the mouse-over.

  10. Harmonise the default resource type icons with Leganto's icons

    Since we have both Primo and Leganto, our customers should have a consistent experience with resource type icons between the two interfaces. We have no choice but to use the OOTB icons in Leganto, a set of default Primo icons that harmonises with them would be appreciated. It may be that the size/canvas transparency may vary between them, but in essentials they should look the same where types are equivalent. With CDI we understand there will be additional resource types - this is a good opportunity to bring the two interfaces into a closer alignment for user experience.

    PS: Alma…

  11. Change wording of "partial results found" error message

    Currently when users enter too many boolean operatoCurrently when users enter too many boolean operators or trucation symbols in their search they will get the error message "Partial results found. Please note additional results may be available by refining your search. May we suggest: try reducing the numbers of ? and/or * in your search."

    This error message is confusing. What it should really say is something like this:
    "Your truncated search terms match too many words. The search cannot retrieve all of them so some records you might expect might be missing from the search results. If you can…

  12. Better Primo VE Menu Link Options

    Custom menu links in Primo open in a new tabbed window. This is bad behavior. If I go back to the original screen and press the button again, it opens up another window in another tab, and so on.

    Desired Behavior:
    Menu link goes to address -- does not open a new window or tab. At the very least, it should have be an option for developers. Currently it is hard-coded in the html and not changeable. Using it leads to cluttered browsers.

  13. Dark mode for Primo

    Users ask for a possibility to view the catalogue interface in dark mode. Could this be realized for Primo?

  14. Custom fonts

    We would like custom TTF and OTF fonts to be natively supported in the Primo customization package. This would allow applications to render barcodes as well as other corporate branding elements.

  15. Ability to dedup or FRBR between local data and CDI data

    For Primo Central Index data collections, the PCI citation often represents a title that we also hold in our local data. The current inability to dedupe or cluster between PCI and local data means that users will always be presented with two hits when they are on the combined/everything scope.

    With the new Central Discovery Index (CDI), we would like the ability to configure a deduping or clustering algorithm such that we only present one hit to the user.

  16. Allow "best location" on brief results display to be configured by view

    A user viewing a view that is associated with a particular library or campus should be able to view availability of physical items at that library or campus libraries in the brief results layout. This idea is primarily for institutions with multiple libraries and, especially, multiple campuses. Campuses are associated with libraries, and typically a Primo view will be associated with a campus.

    Currently "best location" can only be set via the user's IP address. This approach works when users are at the location, but when a user is off-campus, the first location to show on brief results and full…

  17. Option for linking Collection details page instead of Collection Lobby

    Simple search results on Primo NUI for Digital collections shows Title and View the collection link only, which get us its collection lobby page directly. Please give us an option that enables to check the collection's metadata(bib) on its Details page and then the user can move to the collection lobby by clicking the link like E-resources.

  18. Adding a hierarchical tree display option to Collection Lobby

    Please add a hierarchical tree display option to Collection Lobby. When a top-level collection has many sub-collections across all depth level, it's too hard to browse individual collections and titles.

  19. Differenciating the code for PCI records from the code for Alma records

    The PCI records that we don't subscribe and the Alma records without holding show the same labels on Get It section because they share the codes, such as:

    c.uresolver.getit2.holdinglist.empty.top
    c.uresolver.getit2.holding
    list.empty.signedinuser
    c.uresolver.getit2.holdinglist.empty.signedinuser.noservices
    c.uresolver.getit2.holdinglist.empty.guestuser
    c.uresolver.getit2.holding_list.empty.bottom
    (Samples are on SF #00731305)

    We want those two groups of records to be distinguished from each other so that we can apply different labels giving more customized information to our patrons.

  20. Easily share records in Social Media

    When sharing a record in social media (Facebook, Whatsapp, etc.) using the Full Display page's URL - it would be better to see in the preview the Name, Description, Domain, and Thumbnail of the record that has been shared.

    Please see the attached PDF file for a detailed example.
