  1. Library Card page

    I think it would more user-focused if the "Library Card" dashboard listed all of the requests and loans in one spot, regardless of the lending library. Many users are unaware of which library they've requested an item through - it would be nice if there was only one dashboard for patrons to check on the status of everything in one spot.

  2. Make consistent the use of CDI record data in Primo UI

    Current CDI design in Primo UI is to expose metadata from all participant records for both returning results from a search query, and in the values presented for selection in facet for filtering results, but the display of metadata within records is only by site-specific activations.
    This means that a user can search for a term in Primo, have results returned on the basis of that term, select the value for the term in a facet, but then not see the term in the record display.

    The negative impact of this design decision includes:
    * a user is confused by…

  3. course reserve

    Course Reserves:
    Requested Enhancement: Offer interface with drop-down menus for Course Title, Course Department, and Course Instructor (similar to drop-down menus in Voyager)

    Currently users can search for course reserves, but there is not a good mechanism to browse. Offering drop-down menus would easily allow users to see what was currently on course reserve by course title, department and instructor.

    Thank you for considering

  4. Add facets into the Collection Discovery UI

    While we are really happy that the functionality to search withing collections is planned, we propose to implement the facets also for the Collection Discovery.

    Facets are very useful to limit results in big collections for discovery and browsing, when the user doesn't know exactly what he is looking for. We do have several big collections.
    Also, functionality would be more consistent with the Primo Search interface.

  5. Browses: add See Also and Usage info from authority headings

    Primo supports display of See references (not same as See Also) in browse headings, if those cross-references are in the bibliographic data ingested by Primo. There is no capacity to display See Also and Usage info from authority records, which are important so that users understand how and why certain terms, especially subjects, may be used.

    We propose that See Also and Usage info display in the Browse headings.

    Example headings and See Also and Usage info that does NOT currently display in Primo:

    Blacks:

    Search also under: subdivision Blacks under individual wars, e.g. World War, 1939-1945--Blacks; and headings beginning…

  6. Separate language menu

    In August release 2018, there is finally a good improvement in the sign in area, but unfortunately the language selection is now inside a personal menu. If guests user enters Primo which by default is not in his native language, they wouldn't know what to do. There is a nice solution created by Manneheim University, and I hope Exlibris will take it as an example:

    https://primo-49man.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/primo-explore/search?vid=MAN_UB&sortby=rank&lang=de_DE

  7. Add ability to change default sort for results

    I would like to change the default sort for one of our views from Relevance to Date-newest. Our library has a lot of grey literature which is not handled appropriately by the Relevance sort.

  9. Move Peer Reviewed into it's own facet group

    The Peer Reviewed facet is currently grouped in the Availability facet group. It has nothing to do with Availability or the other things in the Availability facet group. Not seeing another facet group that makes sense, Peer Reviewed should be in it's own facet group. This will make more sense to the user, allow more flexibility in controlling the placement and the look and feel of these individual facets.

  10. Active Links in Journal Record when Searching in Journals

    Currently when you search for a journal in a general search the full record will have links to the author, subject heading, etc. When you use the actual Journal Search this links are not available. It would be nice to have active links in this record as well.

  11. Option to highlight active tabs in Primo top pane

    We would like the option to highlight active tabs in the Primo top pane. At present, it is not clear which tab is in use. Highlighting of active tabs supports navigation and improves user experience, but there is currently no easy way to implement this. Including an option to do so, for example via CSS, would be helpful.

  12. Adjust number of results Collection Discovery

    Collection Discovery pages are great but loading 10 at a time is not enough. Would like to see adjustable results dial similar to what was recently released in Alma. Perhaps even up to 100 results on a page would be sufficient.

  13. Ranking of search results by Resource Sharing Library

    Concerning search results in Primo : could it be made possible to rank different holdings of the same title by Resource Sharing Library of the patron? This way the patron would see on top of the list the item that is the easiest accessible to him. At present patrons often request items from another library because they did not notice the title is also available at their own library.

  14. Display all blocks and patron limits in Primo My Account

    The My Account page in Primo only displays blocks of the blocks tab in the Alma user details page so that a patron who logs in Primo and unsuccessfully attemps to renew an item from the library isn’t notified about blocks that are applied based on patron limits/ library-definied rules such as maximum cash limit. The My Account page should display all blocks.

  16. Please make the MARC bib. 245 subfield p from the bibliographic record available.

    The MARC 245 subfield p from the bibliographic record is not exposed to Primo. This means that the data in the b245p is not available to display to users in the My Account section of Primo, as part of the requesting process and on pull slips for items. This becomes important when the items have 245a data that is the same. For example, when a video game has the same name with more info in the 245p like the ones below.
    b245a b245p
    Angry birds. Star Wars
    Angry birds. Trilogy

  19. Improve RTA Holdings status information for checked out / unavailable items for Alma consortiums

    For Alma / Primo customers in a consortial resource sharing network, when an item in an institutional view is checked out, in the brief results display, an RTA availability statement is replaced with a "Check Holdings" link. Upon clicking on the title and viewing the full display of the record, RTA is checked for all institutions, including the institution of the view the user is in, updating the RTA status. When the user clicks out of the full record, the correct status (e.g., Checked Out) displays in the RTA section of the brief record in the results list.
