Journal coverage dates to show in the brief results page
Would like the ability to configure Primo to display the coverage dates found in the Alma portfolio record to display in the Primo brief results.
Currently, dates from the Alma bibliographic can display in the brief results but usually the publication date found in the bib differs than the coverage in the portfolio.
Our patrons and staff would like to do a search for ejournals and see from the results what our coverage/holdings are without clicking into the full details.

Someone was just asking for this today! Thanks for writing this up.

I have voted for this idea. The publication years of journals are very often confused with availability by library patrons.
I'd like to see this idea developed to extract the earliest beginning and latest ending years/dates/volumes of availability, from multiple portfolios where they exist for an individual journal. Showing only the availability statement from the first electronic portfolio in the brief results may not be desirable.
Also if it can calculate the ending years/dates/volumes where embargoes exist, rather than including any embargo statement in the brief results would be good. If current journal issues are acquired, the availability should ideally show as "- present".
