  1. Collecting records directly for Primo to feed an union catalog

    Our library we are going to participate in a union catalog project. The company in charge of making the catalog has asked us to provide with access to the records of our library data sources (ILS, repositories, other databases, etc.) in order to collect (through OAI / PMH or any other method) and incorporate them into the new union catalog.

    We think that, since some libraries have only Primo installed, For this project, a other similar projects, it would be more efficient that the records can be collected directly from Primo and not from the other systems. Thus, it would…

  2. Show correct number of renewals in Primo and Aleph

    In our testing Aleph, we set to allow unlimited number of renewals.
    Item was already renewed for more than 9 times, the number of renewals shown in Aleph client and Primo were both stopped at 9.
    We request Aleph and Primo to show the correct number of renewals.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Display Peer Reviewed and Open Access icons when coming to Primo via OpenURL

    Our clients can benefit from having the Peer Reviewed and Open Access icons display in Primo when clicking through from a Database or Google Scholar. We would like to meet our clients where they are searching for articles and these two indications are important to them.

    Example title: Biological invasions, ecological resilience and adaptive governance

    There are Peer reviewed or Open access indications when linking back from Google Scholar: https://sun.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/openurl?institution=27US_INST&vid=27US_INST:27US_V1&volume=183&date=2016&aulast=Chaffin&issn=0301-4797&spage=399&id=doi:10.1016%2Fj.jenvman.2016.04.040&auinit=BC&title=Journal%20of%20environmental%20management&atitle=Biological%20invasions,%20ecological%20resilience%20and%20adaptive%20governance&sid=google

    but we do see these indications when searching the title directly in Primo VE

  9. Support Indexing of Collection Type(Alma-D)

    When adding an Alma digital titles, all Alma digital titles are indexed, so it takes a total of three days to be published.
    It takes three days to update the primo collection lobby.

    Please consider that only certain collection types or some collections can be indexed to reduce publishing time.

    • Support Indexing of Collection Type(Alma-Digital)
    • Enable indexing of a range between start and end values.(Alma-Digital)

  10. Relais third-node adapter

    There should be a way to search consortium library ILSes using Metalib or a z39.50 third-node adapter. We are currently building a metalib quickset to federate search across the consortium. We hate relais' discovery service so we would like to keep users in primo. Currently, the relais link in the new UI is for known items. We would like to create a consortium based union catalog. Even better would be if this could get accomplished by daily automated harvesting within PCI (leaving d2d's web API to check availability and process the loan). If you think this would require additional resources,…

  11. Add 562 data from holding record to Primo GetIt tab

    Additional Holdings Information can be displayed in Primo GetIt tab, but only some fields of holding record can be used : 867-868-541-561-563-852t.
    We would like to have also 562 holding field, which permit us to give a Copy and Version Identification Note for an item. (Subfields $a $b $c would be fine.)

  13. Allow API retrieval of a user's saved searches

    We would like the ability to retrieve a user's saved searches via API, in order to allow for the user's searches to be displayed with other user information (e.g., in a library website user account).

    There is an existing API, in the DevTools' Network tab as
    /primo_library/libweb/webservices/rest/v1/savedSearches?vid=..., which requires a Guest or User JWT.

    However, this API has not been added to the API Gateway for public use. We would like for this to be added to the API Gateway.

  15. The ability to customized Worldcat link in Worldcat search API

    It would be great if the worldcat link in the Worldcat search scope (enabled via Worldcat search API) could be customized to allow either 1. a proxy prefix or 2. for replacement with a worldcat discovery link.

    We're looking into this because when we were on campus, the link was able to - via IP recognition - offer users the option of going to our Worldcat Discovery instance, which brings together worldcat records with our services (i.e. ILL) We would like to somehow replicate that experience now that our services have all gone remote.

    Sample record: https://umbrella.lib.umb.edu/primo-explore/search?query=any,contains,bear%20extinction&tab=worldcat&search_scope=WorldCat&vid=01MA_UMB&offset=0&pcAvailability=true

    Thank you!
