  1. Remove the total number of results

    It would be useful if the total number of results are hidden by default from the search results page, but patrons have the option in their user account settings to enable the total number of results.

  2. Feedback Tool: don't pre-select the first option

    When I open the feedback tool, the focus is on the first option.

    None of the options should be selected when I first open the widget. See screenshots.

  3. Primo VE - "related titles sorted alphabetically by title"

    The Articles such as "der, die das" should be ignored for the sort." - Currently it is not possible to configure the sort of the related titles.

  4. ILL link on missing holdings

    Currently GETIT ILL links won't appear on a citation when any range of print holdings are owned locally, even if the issue from the citation is not held. Please allow an option that allows a path to an ILL form when the issue needed is not locally held.

  5. PrimoVE should allow disabling of Aggregator Content Data

    Improving OpenAIRE Links in PrimoVE: A Customization Proposal

    Many of the OpenAIRE links in our system are currently unreliable. To address this issue, we propose the following enhancements:

    1) Aggregator Content Data Class: We recommend introducing an aggregator class specifically
    for Aggregator Content Data in the code. This class would allow us to apply custom styling
    and control the display of OpenAIRE links.

    2) CSS Customization: If we had a dedicated <span class="OpenAIRE">, we could easily add CSS
    rules to hide OpenAIRE links. Currently, we lack this flexibility, and our users are
    inundated with potentially unreliable links. Other Contenre Data…

  6. Primo Header is cut off at a certain Window Size

    When one reduces the size of the browser window, the button for the advanced search moves into the “hidden” menu. Right before it disappears, it is cut off and can no longer be read. Furthermore horizontal scrolling is required in order to visually grasp the other menu items such as "Login" and "Menu". As far as we could check, this affects a browser window size from around 600px to 800px.

    This does not depend on local CSS modifications. It is a general UX issue that affects responsive design and furthermore is breaking with the WCAG accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.1, 1.4.10, …

  7. HTML Language Tag customizable for Screen Readers

    In order to improve the accessibility of Primo, it would be helpful if one would be able to choose country-specific language settings for screen readers by the HTML language tag. We would be interested in the language setting “de-AT” to be available to recognize the Austrian variety of the German language. This could also be interesting for a lot of other languages.

  9. Ability to copy and paste the results from a browse search

    As a librarian, I would like to be able to copy and paste the results from a browse search into Wordpad or Word so that I could then use those results to create a list of hyperlinked subject headings for a library guide. It appears as though this inability to copy and paste applies to all of the “Browse” options (see attached).

  10. ability to reintegrate Newspaper indexes into main search

    deactivating "Newspaper search" results in a loss of content. Activating Newspaper search defeats the purpose of a discovery layer for some institutions. Also the the results in Newspaper Search still fails many times for known item searches and does not function the same as the main search.

  11. Enable Quicklinks on a Provider-by-Provider Basis

    We would like to be able to enable QuickLinks links on a per-provider basis.

    We would like more control over which providers QuickLinks operates again, both for testing and link accuracy reasons.

    When we find a provider for which QuickLinks do not work well, we have no workaround other than disabling QuickLinks completely. This negatively affects our users, because QuickLinks may be working well for resources from other Providers.

    We would also like be to be able to test QuickLinks with new providers, prior to having QuickLinks attempt to link to the new provider's resources.

  12. Requesting at artcle level optional

    In our library we do not carry out article level requests for print journals. Our patrons can only request issues. But Primo shows the Get It section for articles where there is a print record for the journal. We do want the Get It section on the journal, but not on the article level. It would be nice if the individual library could decide wethter to show ********* articles or not.

  13. Remove Pickup location entry from digitization entry in my requests

    When digitization requests are in process, a pickup location is displayed. This doesn't make sense for something that is a digitization or document delivery request, since there is nothing to "pickup". I realize this is a holdover from the photocopy days, but perhaps it might make more sense if patrons had the option to request physical delivery for a digitization request ("request physical copy") and ask them to designate a pickup location rather than having users assign a pickup location for all digital requests.

  14. Add document delivery transactions to Requests tab in 'My Account'

    Current digitization (document delivery/digitization) requests are shown when requests are in process. I would like docdel and digitization requests to be available in the Requests tab until they are expired.

    Ideally, a download button would be available while the document is available ( before the doc expires or max views has been exceeded) and the number of remaining views is displayed (see image).

  15. Recuperar en búsqueda avanzada por título el campo 740, desde la opción de Comienza por

    En búsqueda avanzada, por título, con la opción "Título comienza por" recuperamos los campos marc 130 y 245, pero no el campo 740. El campo 740 únicamente se recupera eligiendo la opción "titulo contiene". Solicitamos que el 740 tenga las mismas opciones de recuperación en PrimoVE que los campos 130 y 245.

  16. Improve the date/year filter selection

    The existing "arrow" option for date/year filter selection in Primo VE is problematic for users, resulting in "rage clicks" as they try to select the required date range.

    Can alternative configuration options be provided so we can control how the date/year filtering displays?

    For example options to display a calendar or date range slider or manual data entry to adjust the years.

  17. Improve resource accessibility with a new field «Request accessible document» in “Digitization optional parameters”

    To provide better access to resources for users with disabilities, ETH Library would like to offer its users accessible digital copies. This service requires an additional field in the digitization request form in Primo VE, in which users can indicate if they would like to request an accessible document. This field could be named “Request accessible document” and be added to Discovery > Configuration > GetIt > Digitization optional parameters, so that libraries can enable and disable the field as they like. We think that it would be best if there was a dropdown list available for this field with…

  18. Article level records from Alma should populate resource sharing form correctly

    Article records from CDI will populate the Primo VE resource sharing form correctly, as a document delivery option for when there is no full-text available.
    However, when it comes to article level records from Alma, the Journal title is incorrect (instead, the article title is entered into this field) and other information is missing, like publication year, volume, etc. Overall the article is not recognized in the Context Object as an article, but instead treated as a journal - thus omitting all fields not relevant to a journal record.
    Example:

    1 - Go to: https://kbdk-kgl-psb.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/permalink/45KBDK_KGL/1pioq0f/alma99124396529705764. See that the resource…

  19. Configuration Option to view all links available in Primo VE (both direct and link resolver)

    Please give us an option to display all links (both direct and link resolver) for all possible links in Primo VE. I have checked the "Display All Links in Full Display for CDI" which gives the direct link first, then students have to click "Show More" dropdown for subscribed content links. It would be preferable to have all available links display without students having to click the dropdown. And also, the subscribed links usually have coverage dates included so quicker for students as well.
