  1. Primo - Set up display logic rules - document type level

    Set up display logic rules not at the level of a target or a service but at the level of the document type:
    in particular, no more link or SFX service to be displayed when document type is dataset or patent, it seems SFX does not know how to process datasets metadata.

  2. Make links in Collection descriptions appear as hypertext

    In Alma Digital collections, you can put a bunch of text in a collection description, but URLs always appear as plain text in Primo.

  4. Navigation within My Favorites should be more user-friendly

    Navigation within My Favorites is tedious: When a favorite is removed or when the list is relabeled, you always go to the top of the list instead of the original starting point.

  5. A-Z ejournals list

    Would it be possible to re-instate the alphabetical groupings of eJournals that used to appear in Primo before Primo VE? This would be in addition to the subject groupings that we now have. The Subject groupings are great, but we have some customers who prefer to search through the alphabetical groupings that we used to have. If it could be something that could be incorporated, but have the ability to turn it off for those that don't want it on their Primo VE that would be great. Different people look for things in different ways and I think having both…

  6. 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.

  7. Show printed holdings in brief display when both printed and electronic exist

    When having articles with both printed and electronic holdings the printed holdings doesn't get displayed in Brief Display until you click to the Full Display. If you then return to Brief Display you will see the printed holdings. Look at screencast: https://www.screencast.com/t/6v3E0HBQ The printed holdings should be displayed directly in Brief Display without having to click to full display.

  8. Export ISSN, EISSN, DOI and PMID Separately

    Using Export to Excel or CSV, we are able to export Identifier, but ISSN, EISSN, DOI and PMID are grouped together in one field.
    It will be more user-friendly if each Identifier is splitted into separate fields as shown in the attachment.

    Also I'd like to ask you one more favor.
    It would be great if "https://doi.org/" is added to DOI to access easily like https://doi.org/10.1109/5.771073.

  10. Import excel file to Journal Search Category labels

    Journal Search Categories are possible to export as an excel file. It should also be possible to import the excel file, after editing it in excel. That possibility already exists for the Journal search labels. Why not for Journal Search Categories also?

  11. Allow custom scopes for CDI records, for an "articles only" drop-down search profile

    Currently, custom scopes that allow for setting conditions include only local data from Alma, and do not include any CDI records, even if blended with CDI. This means it is not possible to create a search profile with a custom data scope of with "Resource type: articles". Instead, in order to limit a search to only articles, the user must use the facets on the left-hand side of the page. I think this is a common search parameter that should ideally be available in the drop-down menu to the right of the search bar.

  12. Allow boosting IZ records when displaying FRBR groups

    As a member of a consortium, we would like to see our local records displayed first while looking at FRBR groups.

    The current sorting and prioritization methods do not help with achieving this.

  14. Have Location Facet appear ONLY AFTER a Library facet is selected

    For large library systems, many locations of stacks, eg. exist making the location facet appear very confusing to users. The LibraryLocation facet is problematic because many library locations are beyond the limit of 20 that's possible to view.

  15. Collection Discovery – enable alphabetical sort for each language

    Hi

    We are planning to use collection discovery by subject area and would like to sort the collection overview page alphabetically by title of collection.

    Our Primo VE interface is multilingual. We'd like to translate the collection names, with correct alphabetical sort in all interface languages.

    At the moment this is not possible: alphabetical sort is by the English titles.

  16. Primo VE - Local Resource Type order to match Primo BO functionality

    When defining Local Resource Types in Primo VE, there is no option to adjust the order that the rules are checked, unlike in Primo BO. Being able to define the order of rules can help arranging them from most specific to least specific.

  17. Add a Deploy button to all screens that require a deploy

    So may times we forget or don't know that a deploy is required for a change to be implemented into production.


    1. It would really nice that any feature that requires a deploy a deploy now button be included on the screen (some sections already have this feature)

    2. It would be even better if there was a banner at the top of the admin panel if there were changes that require a deploy to implement pending so that Administrators can easily see that a deploy is required.

  18. 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=27USINST&vid=27USINST: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

  19. Primo VE: Approve/Reject user created tags before adding to display

    We want to enable user created tags in Primo VE, however, we need the ability to screen tags BEFORE they get displayed. Currently, tags are on display as soon as they are added.

    Ideally, users would "Suggest a Tag" which is initially in a 'hidden' status. At the Manage Tags screen, there would be a checkbox or toggle switch to Approve or Reject each tag.

  20. Direct linking for digital objects to become customizable

    At Leiden University we would like the direct linking to be customizable. If a record is related to both an electronic and a digital service, the electronic service is now preferred. We would like to be able to choose the digital service to be chosen.
