  1. Getit2 of PrimoCentral records lists irrelevant local resources (missing date check)

    Records from Primo Central have a getIt2-Tab which lists print resources from local catalog for an article. The problem is that the publication date of the article and the listed resources do not match and therefore cause confusion. Think of an current article from a Journal and you get old volumes suggested from the library. Only print resources containing the article should be listed.
    In other words: The function would be usable if the getit2 lists print resources with the same publication date.

    Suppressing the get-it tab according to the documentation (http://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/KnowledgeArticles/RemoveGetIT!TabWhenNoPrintVersion%2C

  2. Add a prm-alma-mashup-after angular directive

    It's hard to work with the alma-mashup without the prm-alma-mashup-after directive and the lack of the directive is inconsistent with the rest of the markup in Primo.

  3. Ability to configure New Primo to force patrons to sign in

    In the classic Primo, we were able to configure force login using the javascript in the KB Article https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/KnowledgeArticles/HowtoconfigurePrimotoforcepatronstosignin

    The KB article is for classic UI only.

    Due to security, we need to force user login.

  4. Display Copy ID field in Get It

    Alma has a Copy ID field but it does not display in Primo in the Get It section. This value should display. It does not have to be in its own column, it could be concatenated with a label of "Copy" and show in the Description column. This was possible in the Aleph/Primo configuration.

  5. Adding of Primo collection to Leganto

    Right now, Primo Collection are searchable in Leganto. However, adding the collection to Leganto is not supported.

    The Primo collection link added to Leganto will not go into the exact collection, it goes to a list of all collection instead.

  6. Adding Accession Number for EBSCO results to the PCI

    Would be useful to add the EBSCO Accession Numbers to PCI records and sending these Accession Numbers in the OpenURL from Primo to Alma, so that Alma could use them to build direct links to EBSCOhost for problematic linking issues.

  7. Add the 'until' argument to OAI-PMH pipe configuration

    When creating a pipe to harvest using OAI, we can currently set the 'from' date but not an 'until' date. When harvesting from a large repository, this means we have to collect the whole set in one go - which may be a problem for Primo and/or the repository. We would prefer to process, say, three months data at a time.

  8. Add feature to Primo services page to help users outside Primo find full text from PCI direct link collections

    The Alma link resolver only returns results from the Alma repository, so it would be useful to add a feature to the Primo services page that would pull in results from Primo Central direct link collections too. Perhaps the feature could show a search results preview from the library’s Primo and format it like the bx service in an orderly side panel. Such a change would encourage users to search the library’s Primo before they resort to an ILL request or give up on looking for the item. Some full text content is exclusively available through PCI direct link collections,…

  9. Different RTA status messages for items on loan and missing items

    Today the message "All items checked out from ..." is shown both for items on loan and items with process status "Missing" in Aleph. We would like to have different messages reflecting the real process status of he item.

  10. Smarter grouping of Primo Central records

    If there is several records in Primo Central for the same article and all but one have the same metadata Primo should not choose to group on the one that differs.

  13. Allow requests or display request link without sign in

    Some items (for us, things in our storage system) should be request-able for all patrons regardless of status. It would be nice if there was a way to specify, in Alma or in Primo, that some locations should always display a request link, even if a user is not logged in. Ideally, users would be able to request from these locations without requiring a login.

  14. Bib MARC field 561 should be indexed in the Primo PNX file

    The MARC 561 field in the bib should be indexed in the Primo PNX file for searching by donors of collections and for patrons seeking metadata from those collections.

  15. More granuality in the additional data section in the PNX

    Editors of anthologies seems to be normalized to addau element in the PNX. I would like a specific editor element that can be mapped to the RIS tag ED.

  17. Export from SFX thru MARCIt and pipe up to Primo without the need to load SFX content into Catalog by Creating Normalization Rules

    Instead of having to: load MARCIt-enhanced SFX e-records into our Library catalog every month, and then export them from our catalog up to Primo...

    It would be more streamlined to have them: export from SFX > thru MARCIt (for extra indexing) > and then straight up to Primo where they'd be normalized and searchable.

    This would reduce support time, and our catalog record load, while still having all our content indexed and searchable in Primo.
