Journal A-Z and Database A-Z functionality based on a campus scope.
On our current Primo we have Journal A-Z and Database A-Z functionality based on a campus scope. This is due to us having two Primo views - one for Cardiff University and one for NHS Wales. We share a catalogue but have created the ability for our users to search in Primo on a dedicated view depending on their affiliation; so that they receive search results only for items to which they have access. This split in search results includes the A-Z listings. And it is all based around a campus scope. We have been told that for our move to Primo VE (date as yet undetermined) we will lose this functionality. Apparently Journal Search and Database Search function on the institution level in Primo VE - not on scope level (library or campus). And it has been decided by product management to keep this functionality. We are advised to create a new Idea Exchange suggesting to enable journal and DB search on scope level. So hence this entry!

Either having these at institution level rather than campus, or being forced to abandon altogether will be a degradation of service for our users. This is not an ideal way to promote a new and "improved" service.
