  1. Include the 776 field in ISBN matching when deduping books

    Deduping of books would be improved if the deduping algorithm included the 776 field in ISBN matching. Currently, the algorithm only checks the 020 field for ISBN. In many cases, an electronic version of a book has the print ISBN in the 776 field, which would allow for a match of the electronic 776 to the print 020. The February VE release included an improvement that allowed the 776 field to be used when matching journal ISSNs, but it is still not being used when matching book ISBNs.

  2. loan history lookup option

    Loan history lookup options, such as, a search box, a year select box or a slider (of the return date), would be helpful for the users having hundreds of loan history records.

  3. Enable configuration of Permalinks to open a tab that gives access to an item

    Permalinks currently open into the detail tab in Primo.

    Our users have expressed a preference for the permalink to open into a screen which would give them access to the item i.e. either the getit or view it tab.

  4. APA citation 7th edition

    Currently, the Primo Action functionality allows for APA 6th citation style. In order to benefit students, we would like to include the APA (American Psychological Association) 7th edition as a possible citation style.

  5. Would it be possible to add an icon or facet in the search filters for open source?

    I am trying to encourage the use and teach with open source materials. If these materials could be easy to spot and/or sorted for it would greatly facilitate their use and knowledge that they exist.

  6. Introduce Nested Faceting in "Refine My Results"

    Currently, it is possible to create new facets in the "Refine My Results" section with a little bit of work. Is there a way that nested facets could be introduced to this section? For example, there might be a facet titled "video" with the option of expanding this to introduce sub-facets like DVD, VHS, Film, Bluray, eVideo, etc. Or, under the facet "book" we would have the option of expanding this to introduce sub-facets like print book, eBook, Thesis/dissertation, Microform, Large print, Braille book, etc.

  9. Subject words also in brief display

    We would like to have the option to show subject words in the brief display mode. This would help users determine if hits are relevant faster.

  10. User management - Admin User can make a default "Patron has institutional record" as "Yes" or "No"

    There is no possibility for an Admin User to set up the external or internal user account to be a default value (in "Patron has institutional record" as "Yes" or "No"). As we mostly create user accounts for our organization, we would like to have "Yes" as a default value. The settings update is currently considered as enhancement.

  12. Actions - email record function - Please give indication an email has been sent

    When emailing a record (via Actions - email ) it would be great if there was some indication that an email was sent. We often get several emailed records from clients regarding the same item – and one has mentioned it would be great to know it’s been successfully sent. Currently the pop box for entering email details just disappears once submitted.

  13. Ability to save phone number in "my account"

    I would love it if I could save my phone number in my account so I don't have to type it in every time to send a record to my phone.

  14. Is there anyway that all holdings can be displayed in a "paragraph" format, instead of a line-by-line format.

    At present time, Primo displays some holdings records in "paragraph" format, and others in line-by-line format. This is inconsistent, and makes the catalog appear sloppy. When items are in the line-by-line format it becomes time consuming to have to scroll down to find out if an institution holds an item. It would be much better for all holdings to appear in the "paragraph" format and this would then give a much needed consistency to the catalog.

  15. Don't filter out Primo Central records after clicking Library facets

    On a blended scope, when you search in the scope and click a library facet, all the Primo Central records are filtered out because Primo Central records do not have facets:library values in PNX. For example,

    (1) Go to our Primo:

    http://kosmos.lib.keio.ac.jp/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=KEIO

    (2) For your convenience, click "English" as UI language on the upper-right corner.

    (3) On the "All materials" tab, search "cancer" (without quotes). The "All materials" scope is a blended scope that contains both local records and Primo Central records.

    (4) On the Library facets, click any library.

    Then all the Primo Central records are filtered out. But…

  16. Show availability of ER thanks to IP analysis

    Primo could analyse the IP address of the PC accessing Primo in order to determine whether or not a electronic resource is available or not.
    This would take into account the actual IP address and not the hypothetical one via campus management.
    No idea if this is technically feasable.
    It would diminish the frustration of patrons who click on electronic resources shown as available but the destination page wants 35 dollars to access the resource (because the patron is in the wrong IP range).

  17. Add Library pre-filter to Primo VE Advanced Search

    It would be helpful if users could pre-scope their search to a particular library in the advanced search, rather than waiting to filter with the post-search facets.

  18. e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting

    e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting. There is no indication available and when copying large amounts of items it is unclear as to whether they have been added to the clipboard or not so the user cannot tell when it is time to paste.

  19. different treatment/table would be allowed for different citation style.

    Different treatment/table would be allowed for different citation formats. Because different citation format require different elements for citation.
    For example, currently, the series titles is mapping in citation mapping table. However, not all citation style require this field.

    Chicago, the series title, if exists, may choose to include in the citation. Disable the series title means that series title will be missing for all citations in Chicago format. If we don't disable the series titles mapping, the citation output of APA & MLA are incorrect. Allow different citation mapping table with different citation style would improve the citation output result.

  20. Change the record ID methods for Tags and Basket

    For Tags and Basket, the records ID is the dedupmrg number for merged records. We want to use the individual record ID for the group.
    This will ensure that records will allways be pointing on the right record even the all records are deleted and reloaded. The dedupmrg number is different whe we reload all records.
