  1. Don't pre-populate the email address in the Saved Search/Email records pop-up

    Currently, in the new Primo UI, the email address is pre-populated in the Saved Search/Email records pop-up. We would like the email address field to be empty.

    Thanks,

  2. Primo New UI - EBSCO API - filter out no-full-text Item

    We have set up a mixed search results of Primo PCI and EBSCO API. In the Primo new UI, The search results are supposed to show only full-text available materials. But we found some result items of EBCSO API are without full-text. We would like to the results items without full-text from EBSCO API be removed in the new UI in a full-text search while the no-full-text item be shown after clicked "Expand beyond library collections" . See the attachment "PCI&EBSCIAPIMixingProblem.docx" for details

  3. Filter out the default search result titles with the status "Citation Available" which don't have full text available under PCI

    We expect the default search results of PCI contain full text titles only. But we found there are result titles which don't have full text with the status "citation available" (e.g. in the collection RAMBI, http://www.lib.ouhk.edu.hk/primo-explore/fulldisplay?docid=TNrambi000465453&context=PC&vid=ouhk&lang=enUS&searchscope=pcgsebookebscoscope&adaptor=primocentralmultiplefe&tab=pga_tab&query=any,contains,RAMBI&sortby=rank&facet=domain,include,RAMBI%20-%20%D7%A8%D7%9E%D7%91%27%27%D7%99&offset=0). We hope the no-full-text titles be filtered out.

  4. DDA portfolios should be presented as Online Preview Available or something else

    DDA portfolios (e.g. ProQuest E-book Preview) should be presented as Online Preview Available or something distinguishable that the institution can customize. Patrons are often confused.

  5. Add wording to Advanced Search Box

    Currently, unlike the Basic Search box, one cannot add wording in the Advanced Search box in the new Primo UI, like "Enter search terms", which is confusing as users don't know that they need to click in the first Advanced Search box to start searching. Even moving the cursor to the first Advanced Search box would help.

    Thanks,

    Ryan

  6. Detailed Results in-view counter

    Primo system allows for viewing detailed results of a given search, one at a time. Navigation through the results is being done using the Arrow icons of the side of the display (picture attached).

    Currently there is no option to know your current position on a line of numerous results.

    It would be useful to be able to view a counter next to the arrow icons which will indicate my current position on the results line, for example "Result 5 out of 17". Attached is an example of that feature in the ALEPH interface.

    Thank you.

  7. Option for linking Collection details page instead of Collection Lobby

    Simple search results on Primo NUI for Digital collections shows Title and View the collection link only, which get us its collection lobby page directly. Please give us an option that enables to check the collection's metadata(bib) on its Details page and then the user can move to the collection lobby by clicking the link like E-resources.

  8. Add configuration option for displaying time as military or non-military

    Libraries should be able to choose whether to display time as military or non-military, based on local preference. It would be optimal if there was a per-view configuration option for making this choice.

  9. The number of default thumbnails of each tile on Primo Collection Lobby

    If I do not define any image files, the system displays the first four images found in the collection's sub-collections and items. It looks much too complicated so it would be great if the institution can fix the number of default thumbnails in a tile(e.g. 4 -> 1), without defining an image file on Discovery tab or General tab.

  10. Make Primo retain search filters by default

    It is currently possible to retain search filters in Primo by selecting individual ones and clicking "Make this filter persistent through this session". I believe the interface would be more user-friendly if all selected filters were retained by default, and would only be cleared if the user selected individual ones to remove or clicked the "Reset all" button.

  11. "Show Source Record" to users with Alma Staff Role only

    Although we can now display the MARC record in the UI using the "Show source records" we feel this feature is only really useful for Library staff and not for the vast majority of users who will not find it useful and will just add clutter to the full record for the majority. Ideally we would like the "Show source records" to be linked to the Alma library staff role so it will only display when our library staff are logged into Primo.

    Currently the only option to display this link in the UI is to have it appear for…

  12. Opening results in a new tab - stop it defaulting to the top of the list

    In the new Library Search, every time I open a search result in a new tab, the list of results resets to the top of the list. This is very annoying, especially if i have already had to load 3 or more pages of results.
