Remove or de-emphasize reference entries in Primo Central results
I was told by someone at Ex Libris that the only way to get rid of "Reference entries" (such as a single word definitions from a dictionary, or an encyclopedia entry) showing up at the top of search results, would be to de-activate the subscription to the source item (the dictionary).
This is upsetting. If you happen to subscribe to several encyclopedias and dictionaries that reference a term, the "Reference Entry" items multiply and crowd out the books and articles, which is probably what users are searching for.
We should be able to set the results ranking level for these types of content - to suppress them from view altogether, allow only one entry to appear in the first 10 results (at, say, position 5), or drop their preference significantly. While still having the encyclopedias and dictionaries activated for our users to use.

You can do that by now in Primo VE (via Alma):
- Configure Views
- Edit a view
- Tab 'General'
- Uncheck 'Highlight reference entry on top'
