Alternative Coverage & Newspaper Search in PCI/CDI
We rely on PCI alternative coverage for maintaining the best discovery layer as this enables full text access to results obtained from known-item searches and topic searches. Using both PCI alternative coverage and the Newspaper Search together present challenges. Using both of these options together result in too many false positives; false positives disappoint users and erode their trust in our discovery system.
Please consider including the Newspaper Search with the regular Primo Central updates that are compared against our institutional electronic holdings file so the Availability statements are correct. As we look ahead to the introduction of CDI, please consider including the Newspaper Search with the regular CDI updates in comparison against our institutional electronic holdings file as well.
