  1. Add spacing between multiple entries of same marc field

    Often, and especially in archival description, we use the same marc fields several times in the same record. So, more than 1 520 (description/scope&content) or more than 1 545 (bio/hist note) and many others.

    The current display in primo ve kinda "smooshes" them all together. Would be great for readability if there was at least a space between multiple entries of the same field in any given record. Attachment has example in primo ve and one in - believe it or not - digitool, where there are extra spaces between each of the repeated fields. Much easier to read.

  2. Expand timeout to include more features

    Expand the features offered through "timeout" by including additional features such as clearing sticky facets and redirecting the timeout to load the Primo home screen.

  3. Highlight one result from each Resource Recommender type in brief results

    We can create multiple types of Resource Recommenders, but if multiple items within a particular type match the tags a user searches for, multiple items are returned from a single Recommender and some Recommenders are hidden. We would like to be able to highlight one result from each matching Recommender.
    For example, display in Primo seems to support highlighting 3 items from Resource Recommenders in brief results, with additional items displayed under link to "See all [#] suggested resources." We currently have three Recommender types: Library Guides, Databases, and a Custom recommender for Librarians (enhanced version of Person recommender). No…

  4. Collection Discovery tiles should display the pub dates of items

    A pub date should appear on the tile even if there is no room for a long title and it would need to be abbreviated. Then, complete bibliographic citation information (at least title, author, publisher, date) should appear when the user mouses over the tile. Also, LC order to simulate a bookshelf browse would be nice.

    Our plan is to use Collection Discovery to create collections of new and significant publications in the disciplines to encourage browsing. Providing just the book cover and title and not in LC order is limiting.

  5. Add Course Reserve Public Notes to Primo VE record details display

    A proscribed set of Course Information can be displayed in the Primo VE record details, but there is no way to add other notes or information related to course reserve in Primo VE, as there is in Leganto. There is a Public Notes field in Alma's Reading List > Citation > Citation Parameters settings, but this note can only be displayed in Leganto. If the Public Note could be made available for display in the Primo VE record as well it could be used in conjunction with the Course Information display to provide important information to end users -- for…

  6. Primo VE: allow translations in OTB Display Fields

    We 'd like the possibility to use translations in OTB Display fields, not only in local fields.
    Use case: we want to use a code for contributors & creators ($4), rather than tag Relator term ($e) and use the translation functionality to display this role in the language of the interface.

  9. Add 956 field to the Links area of the Detailed record

    Currently the only links that display from the bib record are in the 856 with a 4 in the first indicator. We'd like the ability to show 956 links, for local information like digital library links.

  10. Primo VE : possibility to search /filter by code or label within a label table

    In Primo VE, it is currently possible to search for labels and code, but this just allows you to search for, and access to the good label table. Once inside a given table, it is only possible to filter by label language. We would like to add the possibility to search or filter within the tab by code or label, such as what is currently possible on Primo BO, where you can search and display only the line you are looking for, without scrolling along the whole table or using a Ctrl+F. This would be much more effective for administrators.

  11. Field labels in Brief Record Displays

    It would help the user to make sense of what they are reading in the Brief Record Display if we could include labels for some of the fields -- particularly for "Subject" and "Is part of".

  12. Provide an option for users to see all items in an electronic collection

    Alma allows us to make the bib record for an electronic collection like Wiley e-Books viewable by customers in Primo. We would like the contents of the electronic collection to be displayed when the user clicks on the electronic collection name in Primo.

  13. Resultados de la búsqueda por índices

    La página de resultados de la búsqueda por indices cuando el número de resultados es mayor de 20, no muestra el número de resultados sino que pone 20+. Para saber el múmero de resultados tienes que clickear y pasar a la siguiente pantalla. La propuesta de mejora es que mostrase el número de resultados desde la primera pantalla de respuesta.
    Ejemplo: https://fama.us.es/discovery/browse?vid=34CBUA_US:VU1&browseQuery=historia%20de%20espa%C3%B1a&browseScope=subject.1&innerPnxIndex=-1&numOfUsedTerms=-1&fn=BrowseSearch

  14. Allow more than four fields to display in the Brief Record Display

    Please allow more than 4 fields to display in the brief record display. We would like Course Informaton to display for our Course Reserves. Why is there a limit? We should be able to add as many fields as we would like to the brief record display.

  15. Include Course Information with Coures Icon in brief record display

    We would like the option to include the Course Information (from the full record) with the Course icon for the breif record display for course reserves. This way students can quickly see the information without having to open the record.

  17. Add Limiter to Select PCI Collections in Primo VE Advanced Searches

    I'd like to suggest that libraries have the option of adding a limiter to the advanced search area of Primo VE that would allow users to pre-select particular PCI indexes to search. Currently, this can only be done by applying the limiters once search results have been generated.

    It would be beneficial if users had the option of pre-selecting which PCI collections to search prior to actually running the search.

  18. PrimoVE : Allow splitting Dublin Core Fields

    As we have set up Discovery import profiles to import Dublin Core data from other institutions into our PrimoVE instance, we have discovered a few institutions that concatenate the DC:CREATOR and DC:SUBJECT fields into a single field.

    The ability to split these fields in normalization would be extremely useful in the Primo environment.
