  1. Collection Discovery usage in Primo Analytics

    Currently, Analytics possibilities for "Collection Discovery" are rather limited. With action “Display a Collection”, you can for example see how many times your collections (all together) have been displayed, added to favorites... in a period of time, but you cannot see which collections are the most and the less successful, what materials should maybe be more promoted, which collection should maybe be removed because its content is maybe of too little interest, which collections are added to favorites, etc.

    Therefore, we would like Collection IDs and Collection Names to be transferred to Primo Analytics. Additionally, if this could also be…

  2. configure the order of the holdings records in the GetIt tab

    It would be very useful to have an option to configure the order of the holdings records to be displayed in Primo (e.g. according to the loan period) as opposed to the current situation where the order is random.

  3. Add ability to change default sort for results

    I would like to change the default sort for one of our views from Relevance to Date-newest. Our library has a lot of grey literature which is not handled appropriately by the Relevance sort.

  4. Primo Analytics - Ability to report on all search strings, not just Popular and Zero Results

    Primo Analytics currently only includes search string data for Popular and Zero Results subject areas. It would be a vast improvement to be able to see all search string results.
    Note: This functionality is available via BIRT, but only by individual reports by first letter of the alphabet, which are unwieldy and essentially unusable in loading so slowly (and often not at all).

  5. View user request history

    We would love to be able to view a user's request history in the Requests tab of their account. You can view Returns and Fines histories so why not Requests?
    This would be very useful for students and staff! Thanks.

  6. My Library Account: add Recalled Loans Tab

    It would be very beneficial for library patrons to be able to view their recalled loans, at a glance, when checking their library account in Primo; please could you add a Recalled Loans tab to the Overview section of My Library Account

  7. Display related holdings for monographs only for the 773 $w relation and not for the 8xx $w relation

    When filtering to a certain location via facets, you often get results from other locations too, which is unexpected from patrons perspective in many cases. This is caused by the current related records setting which is also taking locations with related records into account. The display is correct for analytical records without inventory (book chapters and articles), but not for the other monographical resources.

    What we wish to achieve is the following:

    > When the record of a book chapter, journal issue or journal article (i.e. a record containing a 773 field with $w) is viewed in Primo, the holding…

  8. Add 'search' feature in e-shelf

    Users should be able to search for references in their eShelf lists based of any <search> field contents in the PNX and wherever the references may be (not sensitive to folders).

  9. Review content type in Primo is confusing

    Currently the Review content type in Primo / Primo Central seems to contain both Book Reviews such as
    http://shu-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/44SHUVU1:defaultscope:TNsciversesciencedirectelsevierS0261-5177(06)00203-2

    and Review Articles such as
    http://shu-primo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/44SHUVU1:defaultscope:TN_proquest1373464971

    It would be better if these were in separate content types.

  10. Remove the character limit for the Resource Recommender Description field

    Currently, there is either no limit or a large limit on the Description field of the Resource Recommender when files are uploaded from Excel.

    However, if you open an existing Recommender to edit something (fix a typo, add additional keywords, update a URL), you are not permitted to save unless the Description field has fewer than 300 characters. This means I opt not to fix my typos, and I have to spend the time to rewrite the description to fit into <= 300 characters in order to update a URL. I find this limitation very frustrating.

    Please either remove or…

  11. Move Peer Reviewed into it's own facet group

    The Peer Reviewed facet is currently grouped in the Availability facet group. It has nothing to do with Availability or the other things in the Availability facet group. Not seeing another facet group that makes sense, Peer Reviewed should be in it's own facet group. This will make more sense to the user, allow more flexibility in controlling the placement and the look and feel of these individual facets.

  12. Ignore call number prefix (subfield k) when indexing for Call Number Browse

    Primo's browse search "By Library of Congress Call Numbers" includes the call number prefix (holdings record field 852 $k) when generating the browse list. At UGA, we use that prefix for oversize volumes (Folio, Ff), and for a variety of branch locations, special statuses and shelving areas (Juv, Ref, Vet Med, etc.).

    As a result, any holdings with a prefix do not show up alongside holdings in the same call number range, essentially hiding many titles from patrons interested in browsing the shelf list. (This would be an issue for staff as well, but shelf list browsing works correctly in…

  13. Determine source for Autocomplete-suggestions in a blended scope

    In Primo you can activate autocomplete to get suggestions for search-queries based on what the end-user begins to type in the search-box.

    We have tested the functionality and see that it could be useful for the end user to get these suggestions. However we see that the suggestions from the central index in some cases are a little strange and that you get suggestions from the entire index and not only the sources the institution has activated. This means that the end-user could get suggestions that gives 0 results.

    The local index suggestions seems to be a lot more accurate…

  16. Add a field ISSN and E-ISSN that are separated but can be matched for Dedup / F

    For more efficient DEDUP of ejournal and print journal.
    The dedup test mach ISSN, but the ISSN of printed journal record is usually different from the e-ISSN of the electronic journal record, thus there is no match between two these numbers.

  17. Several items in a single request

    In the current context of global health crisis and containment, many of our libraries can only offer Click&Collect service for physical documentation access. Then, it seems critical to make the request service evolve in Primo (and Alma for the tracking).
    Indeed, a reader who wants to request several documents must do so one by one from the bibliographic record by selecting the "pickup location", possibly a "start date", an "end date" and a "comment".
    Couldn't you consider the possibility of creating a basket and then being able to request the entire basket at once?
    Thanks

    This new demand could also…

  18. Configure fields included in Course Information

    We would like to be able to modify the default configuration of Course Information field displayed in the details view of the full record in Primo VE, adding to or deleting the default elements (Course ID, Department Name, Course Instructor Name) or changing their order. For example, an institution may want to include only Course ID and Instructor Name but not Department Name here. This is not currently possible.

  19. Adjust number of results Collection Discovery

    Collection Discovery pages are great but loading 10 at a time is not enough. Would like to see adjustable results dial similar to what was recently released in Alma. Perhaps even up to 100 results on a page would be sufficient.

  20. Ranking of search results by Resource Sharing Library

    Concerning search results in Primo : could it be made possible to rank different holdings of the same title by Resource Sharing Library of the patron? This way the patron would see on top of the list the item that is the easiest accessible to him. At present patrons often request items from another library because they did not notice the title is also available at their own library.
