Export search results to Excel (or delimited file)
When a user gets several hundred search results, they would like to be able to download a list of the entire search results. This is a feature that faculty routinely use. They may then have a faculty assistant check out some of the books.
There is no way in Primo to capture an entire set of search results and do anything with it, such as export.
The ability to export a set of search results was a feature in the Aleph OPAC. There is no feature parity in Primo. Users have already noted the lack of this feature.
Thank you for posting this idea, this suggestion will be part of Primo roadmap for 2020 as a NERS Enhancement

Please do not concatenate! The concatenation in Alma is unwelcome and I hope will be reversed. For example: "Book By Gimbel, Steven, (New York, NY : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2018)" is hard to parse back out to meaningful data. Each datum would be much more useful in separate cells.
