  1. 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.

  2. BX "Hot articles" is not (yet) in the NUI

    It's not the most used function, but still had a respectable 5'000 hits in 2017. We'd like to have it when we change to the NUI in a few weeks, but apparently, it is not yet planned.

  3. Filter out the default search result titles with the status "Citation Available" which don't have full text available under PCI

    We expect the default search results of PCI contain full text titles only. But we found there are result titles which don't have full text with the status "citation available" (e.g. in the collection RAMBI, http://www.lib.ouhk.edu.hk/primo-explore/fulldisplay?docid=TNrambi000465453&context=PC&vid=ouhk&lang=enUS&searchscope=pcgsebookebscoscope&adaptor=primocentralmultiplefe&tab=pga_tab&query=any,contains,RAMBI&sortby=rank&facet=domain,include,RAMBI%20-%20%D7%A8%D7%9E%D7%91%27%27%D7%99&offset=0). We hope the no-full-text titles be filtered out.

  4. 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.

  5. Add wording to Advanced Search Box

    Currently, unlike the Basic Search box, one cannot add wording in the Advanced Search box in the new Primo UI, like "Enter search terms", which is confusing as users don't know that they need to click in the first Advanced Search box to start searching. Even moving the cursor to the first Advanced Search box would help.

    Thanks,

  6. Newspaper index activations should be on the ejournal/newspaper title level rather than on the collection level

    The Newspaper Index should be activated on the ejournal/newspaper title level rather than on the collection level.
    For example if you activate in PCI a target like Gale Onefile, that has newspaper articles from a range of different titles, the result is radically different in the main Primo index and the Newspaper Index.

    The main index will have this activation on ejournal/newspaper title level, so will only display newspaper articles and other content that Alma or SFX says are subscribed.
    In the Newspaper Index however the activation is on the Collection level, so that all Gale OneFile newspaper articles are…

  7. Resource Sharing

    When a patron is trying to request an ILL and has located and signed in, make the "Resource Sharing" link under How to Get It, show as a link in blue and display more prominently.

  8. short loan

    Display due times for short loans in Primo, using the time format specified in Alma, rather than defaulting to showing due times in military (24h) time.

  9. Allow read-only access to PCI activation wizard

    Others within our institution would like the ability to see what collections are activated PCI. However, Alma does not allow such access without granting users the role of Discovery Admin. It would be great if there was a way to grant read-only access so other users can view (but not edit) active and available PCI collections.

  10. Detailed Results in-view counter

    Primo system allows for viewing detailed results of a given search, one at a time. Navigation through the results is being done using the Arrow icons of the side of the display (picture attached).

    Currently there is no option to know your current position on a line of numerous results.

    It would be useful to be able to view a counter next to the arrow icons which will indicate my current position on the results line, for example "Result 5 out of 17". Attached is an example of that feature in the ALEPH interface.

    Thank you.

  12. Primo VE: Availability of print inventory with multiple holdings

    In Primo VE, when availability is calculated for print inventory with holdings in multiple libraries, please show the library with the most items first.

    For example if there are 25 items in the Main Library and 3 items in the Law Library, Primo should display “Available at Main Library… and other locations”.

    Primo should not display “Available at Law Library… and other locations.”

    Thank you.

  13. Option for linking Collection details page instead of Collection Lobby

    Simple search results on Primo NUI for Digital collections shows Title and View the collection link only, which get us its collection lobby page directly. Please give us an option that enables to check the collection's metadata(bib) on its Details page and then the user can move to the collection lobby by clicking the link like E-resources.

  14. Add configuration option for displaying time as military or non-military

    Libraries should be able to choose whether to display time as military or non-military, based on local preference. It would be optimal if there was a per-view configuration option for making this choice.

  15. The number of default thumbnails of each tile on Primo Collection Lobby

    If I do not define any image files, the system displays the first four images found in the collection's sub-collections and items. It looks much too complicated so it would be great if the institution can fix the number of default thumbnails in a tile(e.g. 4 -> 1), without defining an image file on Discovery tab or General tab.

  16. Automatic sync of library codes with scopes and static facets

    The Library Codes on the Institution page are currently automatically copied to the Library Names code table and the ILS Library Codes mapping table, which is great.
    We would like to have an option to automatically sync these library codes also with the Scopes and Search Scopes (used for searching, and Location drop-down lists) and Static Library facets mapping table, in order to eliminate the need for manually updating all library codes in the scopes and static facets.

  17. "Show Source Record" to users with Alma Staff Role only

    Although we can now display the MARC record in the UI using the "Show source records" we feel this feature is only really useful for Library staff and not for the vast majority of users who will not find it useful and will just add clutter to the full record for the majority. Ideally we would like the "Show source records" to be linked to the Alma library staff role so it will only display when our library staff are logged into Primo.

    Currently the only option to display this link in the UI is to have it appear for…

  18. Opening results in a new tab - stop it defaulting to the top of the list

    In the new Library Search, every time I open a search result in a new tab, the list of results resets to the top of the list. This is very annoying, especially if i have already had to load 3 or more pages of results.
