  1. Display related holdings for monographs only for the 773 $w relation and not for the 8xx $w relation

    When filtering to a certain location via facets, you often get results from other locations too, which is unexpected from patrons perspective in many cases. This is caused by the current related records setting which is also taking locations with related records into account. The display is correct for analytical records without inventory (book chapters and articles), but not for the other monographical resources.

    What we wish to achieve is the following:

    When the record of a book chapter, journal issue or journal article (i.e. a record containing a 773 field with $w) is viewed in Primo, the holding of…

  2. The new Give Us Feedback Tool should provide information about the end users IP

    Access to electronic resources our library subscribes to is IP-based. If the user's IP address belongs to the university's IP range, they are recognized when they go to the resource and do not experience any access problems. Most of the issues reported to our support team come from students who forgot to turn on the VPN. Adding the IP address information to the feedback message would save us a lot of time in processing such issues.

  4. Configure fields included in Course Information

    We would like to be able to modify the default configuration of Course Information field displayed in the details view of the full record in Primo VE, adding to or deleting the default elements (Course ID, Department Name, Course Instructor Name) or changing their order. For example, an institution may want to include only Course ID and Instructor Name but not Department Name here. This is not currently possible.

    Hi,

    This is to update that this issue is still not planned to be developed in the current road map. We will continue to evaluate it for a future release.

    Therefore we are keeping this under "Under review" status.


    Best regards,

    Yael.

  5. Allow patrons to disable FRBR + disable FRBR in advanced search

    Hi

    Our patrons run into a lot of problems caused by FRBR.

    Please
    – Add a checkmark to allow the patrons to disable FRBR per search, no matter if logged in or not.
    (like "Include articles without fulltext")

    – Make it a parameter in the patron settings

    – Disable FRBR as default in advanced search


    This could also be used as a feeble workaround for the missing exact search https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/18579556-add-a-true-exact-search-to-advanced-search-type

  6. Adding 'Issue' as a new resource type in Primo Central

    Resource types used in Primo Central are limited to 23 (book, article, journal, image...) [See pdf "Primo Central Index Resource Types" in the Documentation Center].

    For digitized journal issues, the type in use is 'journal'. Archive collections like HathiTrust may contain tens of thousands of digitized journal issues; institutional repositories may also contain complete issues… This is finally confusing for end-users for who see issues labelled as journals and for whom filtering by resource type has become useless.

    Adding a 24th type 'Issue' for this material would be welcome! ‘Journal’ would thus only remain for real journal records.

  7. Show e-collections activated in the NZ in the Database Search of IZs

    In our network we activate certain Open Access e-resources in the Network Zone. These e-collections are activated for every IZ without restriction. Some of our Institution Zones are using the Database Search to allow Patrons to search for their e-collections. Unfortunately, the Database Search is showing only e-collections that are activated and have inventory in the IZ. It does not show any of the Network Zone e-collections.

    We would like to have the option to include the Network zone activated e-collections in the Database Search of the IZs.

  8. Option to create additional links for records from external data sources in Primo VE

    At time, in Primo VE, it is only possible to create a link to the resource and a link to the thumbnail in the Import Profile for external data sources. In Primo with a BO, however, it is possible to create nearly as many links in the PNX links section as you like. We use these links a lot for the records of our many different data sources, e.g. create links to an abstract or tables of content, links to related titles, and many mores. These links help to enrich metadata and are user friendly. Therefore, we suggest that in…

  9. Journal search>Browse by categories : allow indexing of Unimarc journals (PrimoVE)

    Currently, only journals described in Marc21 are indexed by subject in Journal Search.
    The Unimarc community is now large in Alma/PrimoVE, and the Browse by Categories function would be useful if it took into account all formats.
    The idea would be to allow indexing of journals described in Unimarc, which have Rameau/LC subject fields in 60X and LCC field in 680.
