  1. Better display of subcategories in database-search in Primo

    In the Database search in Primo, to show subcategories you have to click the little arrow in front of the top category. This is not intuitive for end users, and this is actually the feedback that we get most often.

    It would be much better if clicking on a top category both did a search for records in this category and at the same time opened the subcategories.

    This would enable the user to see all the databases in one category, and at the same time display the possibillity to narrow down to a subcategory if necessary.

    I hope that…

  2. Allow users to choose how many results to see

    With a lot of online retail sites, users are able to choose how many search hits they see per page.

    Would this be a helpful addition to Primo?

    After all, since the new UI was introduced, the subject of infinite-scrolling vs paging has been contentious amongst Ex Libris customers. It has already led to the addition of the 'Next Page' widget.

    Allowing users to choose how many hits they would like to see might take a lot of the debate from us, and put the decision directly into the hands of the end user.

  3. Ability to Run Blank Search with Limiters - Primo VE

    I have been asked by one of our Directors if it is possible within Primo VE to conduct a blank search, limited by material type or some other limiter, and get the full result of what is in our collection. I have not been able to figure out if there is a way to do this. She said she came from an institution that had this capability (Alma - Classic Primo), but I am not sure if that functionality is available in Primo VE.

  4. Less duplicate records in Primo Central Index results

    Primo Central grouping is based on the existing FRBR workflow, including the grouping process at the database level (the way the Search engine handles grouping) and the Front End functionality. It is used to prevent duplicate records in the results list.

    Unfortunately, many records are not added to FRBR groups because the system considers the metadata are not rich enough. With the increase of records provided by (Open Access) aggregators and repositories, the number of duplicate records will certainly not decrease.

    Could Ex Libris improve the FRBR workflow for Primo Central records in order to reduce the number of duplicate

  5. Session Timeout Warning

    It would be most helpful if a 'Session Timeout' warning could be displayed a certain amout of time before the session actually ends. Included in the warning could be the options to 'keep me logged in' or 'log out now'.

  6. Integrate the Alma Digital Viewer into the Primo UI

    I see a breaks in the user experience consistency with the Alma/Primo combination with the link to digital objects in Primo. The link is opening the Alma Digital Viewer and it's look and feel is totally different from the Primo UI. Primo is the interface to the customer. Please integrate the UI into Primo and let Alma manage the objects and the metadata.

    What my webmaster is missing and criticising on the Digital Viewer page:
    - it delivers the wrong favicon
    - link behind the Alma logo points to the actual Digital Viewer page
    - link behind the institutional logo…

  7. Review content type in Primo is confusing

    Currently the Review content type in Primo / Primo Central seems to contain both Book Reviews such as
    http://shu-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/44SHUVU1:defaultscope:TNsciversesciencedirectelsevierS0261-5177(06)00203-2

    and Review Articles such as
    http://shu-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/44SHUVU1:defaultscope:TN_proquest1373464971

    It would be better if these were in separate content types.

  8. Display of earlier editions in 'View x versions' feature instead of latest ones

    Unfortunately, and I've noticed this with other titles in Primo, e.g. Begg Economics, the latest editions of titles are hidden in the 'View x versions' area of Primo while the earliest edition is displayed in the search results. It would be better perhaps if the latest edition displayed with the option to view earlier editions under the 'View x versions' feature.
