  1. an "I Want It" button

    The Penn State library has an “I want it” feature in its catalog, in the search results. It struck me as very direct and to the point. When you click it, it prompts you to sign into their system but I assume it would take you to a request form. I don’t know why they hide it under that three dot icon. I would like to see in Primo, if possible, an “I want it” button, not buried in a menu but right next to every book title in the Primo search result. The idea being that clicking “I want…

  2. 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.

  4. Multiple versions of Books not showing as format BOOKS

    In both Primo VE and Primo when there are multiple versions of a book , it is not clear that the format is BOOKS. When the multiple version is an ARTICLE this is indicated. Can this be fixed please.

  6. Request: Please make it possible to find a match only by a title in Alma linkresolver

    What I want is to make Alma link resolver find matches by a title. Now, Alma linker resolver is returning results only when ISSN/ISBN is given. And, a lot of CJK titles don't have ISSN/ISBN so that there are many occasions when a subscribed CJK portfolio without an identifier is not found in Primo service page. Unlike Alma link resolver, 360 link resolver supports title searching. This is the example of 360 link. The URL below doesn't contain ISSN information either but, it finds the correct match.

    360 Link resolver:
    http://kg6wg8ak8z.scholar.serialssolutions.com/?sid=google&aulast=이영호&atitle=한국학 연구의 동향과'동아시아 한국학'&title=한국학연구&volume=15&date=2006&spage=9

    but, Alma link resolver doesn't…

  7. Show availability of ER thanks to IP analysis

    Primo could analyse the IP address of the PC accessing Primo in order to determine whether or not a electronic resource is available or not.
    This would take into account the actual IP address and not the hypothetical one via campus management.
    No idea if this is technically feasable.
    It would diminish the frustration of patrons who click on electronic resources shown as available but the destination page wants 35 dollars to access the resource (because the patron is in the wrong IP range).

  8. Ability to set Primo into read-only mode (e.g. for closing times)

    It would be nice to have a comfortable ability to set Primo into read-only mode (= customers can not make an order) like a button or checkbox in the backend.
    Reason: many institutions have closing times in summer (for revision, etc.) and the customers should not be able to make an order. Another reasons are major system changes (e.g. switch from Aleph to Alma) where read-only mode is mandatory.

    Until now (classic and new UI) we avoid orders by modifying the CSS file (by using 'display:none;' in several places).

  9. Option to have patron block notes viewable in Primo

    Currently, you can include a note in a patron's block in Alma, but that note won't display in Primo. You have the option of creating a separate note in the patron's record that is viewable, and the block type will provide the patron with some information, but it would be nice if we had the option to include a user-viewable note when creating the block.

  10. Add Library pre-filter to Primo VE Advanced Search

    It would be helpful if users could pre-scope their search to a particular library in the advanced search, rather than waiting to filter with the post-search facets.

  12. Our library would like you to add a second email address option in the dialogue box coming from My basket in order to streamline c & c

    Our library would like you to add a second email address option to those provided in the email dialogue box accessed from My basket so that clients can send a list of items for click and collect to both the Library email and their own email as cc if desired. (Some clients may not wish to use this option, so it should be optional and not essential.)

    Also please add another slot to the dialogue box specifically for the name of the patron to be inserted before the slot for the notes, i.e., Name of patron: John Smith
    This slot…

  14. e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting

    e-shelf indication that items have been copied to clipboard ready for pasting. There is no indication available and when copying large amounts of items it is unclear as to whether they have been added to the clipboard or not so the user cannot tell when it is time to paste.

  15. Primo Saved Search email - link color setting

    Improve color customization of Saved Search Email Alerts

    The February 2020 Primo feature does not allow us to customize the link text in the header (used for the terms of the saved search), which leads to contrast issues.

    Similar to the "Unsubscribe" customization, there should be a similar component to set the color of link text in the header.

  16. different treatment/table would be allowed for different citation style.

    Different treatment/table would be allowed for different citation formats. Because different citation format require different elements for citation.
    For example, currently, the series titles is mapping in citation mapping table. However, not all citation style require this field.

    Chicago, the series title, if exists, may choose to include in the citation. Disable the series title means that series title will be missing for all citations in Chicago format. If we don't disable the series titles mapping, the citation output of APA & MLA are incorrect. Allow different citation mapping table with different citation style would improve the citation output result.

  17. 776 first indicator and display

    The first indicator for the 776 field specifies whether that field should be displayed or not. I added some 776 fields with a first indicator 1 (do not display note) yet this field is displaying in Primo. I would suggest that when 776 is used with a first indicator 1, this field does not display in Primo as per MARC (see link below)

  18. Change the record ID methods for Tags and Basket

    For Tags and Basket, the records ID is the dedupmrg number for merged records. We want to use the individual record ID for the group.
    This will ensure that records will allways be pointing on the right record even the all records are deleted and reloaded. The dedupmrg number is different whe we reload all records.

  19. Don't pre-populate the email address in the Saved Search/Email records pop-up

    Currently, in the new Primo UI, the email address is pre-populated in the Saved Search/Email records pop-up. We would like the email address field to be empty.

  20. Primo New UI - EBSCO API - filter out no-full-text Item

    We have set up a mixed search results of Primo PCI and EBSCO API. In the Primo new UI, The search results are supposed to show only full-text available materials. But we found some result items of EBCSO API are without full-text. We would like to the results items without full-text from EBSCO API be removed in the new UI in a full-text search while the no-full-text item be shown after clicked "Expand beyond library collections" . See the attachment "PCI&EBSCIAPIMixingProblem.docx" for details
