  1. Collection Discovery usage in Primo Analytics

    Currently, Analytics possibilities for "Collection Discovery" are rather limited. With action “Display a Collection”, you can for example see how many times your collections (all together) have been displayed, added to favorites... in a period of time, but you cannot see which collections are the most and the less successful, what materials should maybe be more promoted, which collection should maybe be removed because its content is maybe of too little interest, which collections are added to favorites, etc.

    Therefore, we would like Collection IDs and Collection Names to be transferred to Primo Analytics. Additionally, if this could also be…

  2. Fix Defect: Advanced Search date filter

    The date filter only works for year (not day or month) in the advanced search for Primo Central records.

    This is a known issue with searches for Primo Central records. Primo Central searches on the creationdate field, which doesn't have a month/day, only year. Therefore, if you use the Advanced Search Start Date/End Date fields, the results will include Primo Central items outside of the month/day range.

    Please fix this defect to allow searching on day, month, and year.

  3. Possibility to disactivate related link to physical holding (based on ISSN) for articles

    On Primo VE, when a CDI record contains an ISSN that matches physical holdings (ie. the catalog contains a physical version of the journal that contains this article), it will automatically add on this record a GetIt section with the related physical holdings.

    Example:

    https://virtuoseplus.sorbonne-nouvelle.fr/permalink/33USPCUSN/1lm7vtm/cdigaleinfotracacademiconefileA391721336

    This can be disturbing for the user (and even for librarians), as the get it section shown for this article record contains all the issues in the holding associated with the ISSN, and not only the one containing the article. When the library detains many items in the related physical holding,…

  4. Primo VE's API Favorites should return the "saved searches" on an user

    Primo VE's API Favorites (/primo/v1/favorites, GET) is currently returning the favorite records that an user has saved into his account.

    But an user also have saved searches on his account. The API is not returning those searches. It would be helpful to get them in the API results...

  5. Collecting records directly for Primo to feed an union catalog

    Our library we are going to participate in a union catalog project. The company in charge of making the catalog has asked us to provide with access to the records of our library data sources (ILS, repositories, other databases, etc.) in order to collect (through OAI / PMH or any other method) and incorporate them into the new union catalog.

    We think that, since some libraries have only Primo installed, For this project, a other similar projects, it would be more efficient that the records can be collected directly from Primo and not from the other systems. Thus, it would…

  6. Combine search sets

    Please create the ability to combine active search set results in Primo VE.

    For instance:
    I performed an Advanced search for author stern and keyword difficult. (Search set 1)

    I then perform a search for author stern and libraries. (Search set 2)

    I would like to be able to say in Search History: (search set 1) not (search set 2)

    I do not see a way to use previous search strings to create more complex strategic combinations.

    (This obviously becomes more important as I add additional lines of searches that would require various combinations.)

  7. Primo VE link should open in

    In Primo Classic, main menu links have an option to open links in current windows or new window/tab. In Primo VE links open into a new tab, it would be good to have the option to open a new search in the current window.

  8. Add Next and Previous arrows to Digital Collections

    Add Next and Previous arrows to Details pages in Digital Collections and, ideally, to image viewers so that users don't have to click back to the collection thumbnails after viewing each collection item/image.

    This could work the same way as the Next and Previous arrows in the Primo Details page for search results.

  9. Primo VE be able to get information from AVA and INT holding fields

    Currently, Primo VE's normalization rules can only use information from bibliographic records, so it is not possible to obtain and process information from holdings. The classic version of Primo can get this information from the AVA and INT holdings fields but Primo VE can not perform this task.

  10. Enhance the database search to include keyword searching

    Currently the Database Search in Primo VE is limited to searching for words from the title. This is unsatisfactory as many databases have vague and uninformative titles. We need broader search capabilities and would like the search to also include categories, subjects and descriptions.

  11. Several items in a single request

    In the current context of global health crisis and containment, many of our libraries can only offer Click&Collect service for physical documentation access. Then, it seems critical to make the request service evolve in Primo (and Alma for the tracking).
    Indeed, a reader who wants to request several documents must do so one by one from the bibliographic record by selecting the "pickup location", possibly a "start date", an "end date" and a "comment".
    Couldn't you consider the possibility of creating a basket and then being able to request the entire basket at once?
    Thanks

    This new demand could also…

  12. Allow key-based SFTP for pipes

    When configuring pipes in Primo it is possible to use SFTP as the harvesting method, but there is no option to use keys for authentication, only to specify a password.

    This is in contrast to when setting up integration profiles in Alma, where key based authentication is possible.
    Please incorporate a system similar to that used in Alma into the SFTP configuration for pipes in Primo.

  13. Provide option to 'View All' authors in the author facet

    After performing a search, users sometimes want to filter by an author that does not appear in the top 20 most frequently returned. We would like to provide users with the option to view and browse all authors returned in the search results. A 'View All' link at the base of the facet could be added to enable this.

  14. Ability to run a real blank blank search with facets visible

    In Summon it's possible to run a real blank blank search where you get all hits from Primo displayed with facets. From that you can refine your search to for example language. It means if you go to Primo or VE it should be possible to press the search button to get this blank blank search with facets. In other words, a blank search without using asterisk: *.

  15. Ability to run blank search with limiters in advanced search without "*"

    The idea is explained here: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/35373859-ability-to-run-blank-search-with-limiters-primo But the ExLibris solution is to use "*". This idea suggests a possibility to search with limiters in advanced search without any search syntax like double quoted asterisk. Just blank with limiters.

  19. Options for applying Primo Dedup process selectively

    We want options that can prevent two Alma BIBs from being merged by Primo Dedup Process.
    It could be an option per pipe or local record, or any better method. (Related SF Case# 00872193, etc.)

    e.g.)
    * Alma-P : Dedup OFF
    * Alma-E : Dedup ON
    * CDI : Dedup ON
    .
    .
    .

    Currently Primo runs dedup process for all records. (Please correct me if I am wrong.)
    It is a necessary and useful function for electronic resources - especially for articles- but sometimes not for local print materials.

    Catalogers decide whether to maintain separate BIBs or to merge…

  20. Option to change Dublic Core normalization rules for collections in BePress' Digital Commons

    Currently items imported from Digital Commons do not display a date because out of the box normalization rules for Dublin Core records will not display the date if the date field ends in Z, which is a timestamp. Since BePress claims it is required to include a timestamp, I am requesting that we can modify normalization rules to display a date with a Z field.
