Options for applying Primo Dedup process selectively
We want options that can prevent two Alma BIBs from being merged by Primo Dedup Process.
It could be an option per pipe or local record, or any better method. (Related SF Case# 00872193, etc.)
* Alma-P : Dedup OFF
* Alma-E : Dedup ON
* CDI : Dedup ON
Currently Primo runs dedup process for all records. (Please correct me if I am wrong.)
It is a necessary and useful function for electronic resources - especially for articles- but sometimes not for local print materials.
Catalogers decide whether to maintain separate BIBs or to merge them based on the phisical/bibliographical differences between similar titles.
When the decision was made to maintain them separately, it is intended that users will distinguish them and use the one they prefer. We also think it is users' right of selection.
However, current all-or-nothing process does not allow users to recognize the differences between the similar but unique physical items on different holdings by presenting them in one merged record.
We would appreciate if you kindly provide us a good solution for that.

It's very manual, record by record, but you can do this by norm rule:
