Primo VE: Ability to search by publisher (advanced search or facet)
The MARC 260b + 264b field is not included in the out-of-the-box indexing in Primo VE advanced search or facet as PUBLISHER. According to the documentation the publisher name is searchable only by general in the simple search and not in the advanced search, specific search for the publisher name. Readers want to limit the results by the name of the publisher.
This is a necessary function.

It is extremely useful and common for patrons to be able to include a place of publication in a search string

I think that it will be also a good thing to have the 264$a indexed. Actually, it is not possible to find something published in a certain place of publication, neither in the simple search, nor in the advanced search. Especially for rare books, patrons want to find specifics editions and the town in an important criteria
thank you for your comment.
we know that we can use the local field and use normalization rules for search and facet. but we have only 10 NR and we have finished all.
This is so basic - (publisher, series and edition), thus we don't think it should be part of the 10 local fields with NR for search. It is either we will have more than 10 (at least 15) or (publisher, series and edition) should be OTB.
I believe this is very important not only for my institute but also for others
thank you very much.

This can be achieved by creating local field and use normalization rules for search and facet. for information see: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Product_Documentation/020Primo_VE/025Display_Configuration/040Configuring_Local_Display_and_Search_Fields_for_Primo_VE#Adding_a_Local_Field
