  2. Display all editions of FRBR items even when using scroll wheel or right button

    In brief display in Primo, we can choose what will be displayed when a user clics on an FRBR title :
    - a single item / a single edition in full display chosen by an algorithm ;
    - or the list of all editions in brief display. This is what we have chosen to display, so our users can't miss the fact that we have several editions of the same book.

    But it actually only works if the user uses the left button of a mouse.

    When using scroll wheel or right button, you always have an item chosen by…

  4. Deliver more accurate faceting of search results by improved use of PNX metadata

    Can Ex Libris please look into a system whereby one content type can be privileged over another, supporting more accurate faceting of search results.

    BACKGROUND
    We recently discovered a number of CDI records incorrectly displayed the generic TEXT RESOURCE label for journal articles. It seems these records have been supplied by third party suppliers whose policies dictate that their metadata will not be updated, even upon request (https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Summon/ContentCorner/KnowledgeArticles/Summon%3AFixestoAggregatorContent_Data).

    In many cases the PNX metadata provided indications as to what these really were, even though the allocated resource type was TEXT RESOURCE.

  5. Ability to merge local data with cdi records

    We currently export Imperial Open Access Spiral material to CDI and Primo VE. This means in Primo VE we show duplicate records for all our Open Access Spiral Records. One from the local source and one from CDI. This is not the best user experience. It is also confusing for library staff working on Spiral Records in Primo VE.

  6. Provide system performance metrics

    The Ex Libris Systems Status page only provides simple up/down and planned maintenance information. While this is important, it does not help with other issues, such as slow response time.
    We would like to have access to system performance metrics, including volume of API calls and response time. This could be set up as more detailed information linked from the system status page, or perhaps as reports in the analytics system.

    Although I'm entering this as a primo improvement, it applies to all hosted products.

  7. Allow the view code field to be editable

    To enable seamless updates to the Primo interface it would be useful for the Code for the view to be editable.

    This would allow you to continue to use the same public address for your Primo instance, but switch the view to a new one by changing the code in the Back Office. For example, it would allow you to switch from a the current live view to a new one.

    Currently the field cannot be edited (see screenshot).

  8. "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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Stop matching records with 020 subfield z

    As part of a matching process Primo checks the 020 subfield z, which in MARC format is used for Canceled/invalid ISBN, to display two records as related. That means Primo shows the holdings of the "related" record in the full display of the first record. For a user the holdings will be on the record with invalid ISBN. Very confusing. We've been adviced to delete the ISBN in 020 z or move it to 776, which is a very bad solution. I advice ExLibris to get rid of this solution and not violate the standards of MARC.

  12. Prevent OTB icons from loading before custom icons

    Although Primo customers have the option of using custom resource type icons, the out-of-the-box icons still load momentarily before being replaced by the custom icons. This enhancement would prevent the OTB icons from loading for customers who opt to use their own icons.

  13. Please provide an option to search items from sub-collections together

    Please provide an option to search items from sub-collections together. Now users only can search the items in the current collection but usually the items in sub-collections are also relevant result for the search query. Some may think they can just go back to the basic search page and search again but the others would think it's uncomfortable because they are already familiar with Windows File search function.

  14. Use new copyright statements-digital in Primo display for representations

    At present a copyright symbol automatically displays in the public notes field for representations in Primo View Online section. This is not an appropriate place for the copyright symbol: See idea https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma/suggestions/41256403-remove-copyright-symbol-from-alma-representation-p

    Now that there are new rights statements for use in Alma digital representations, these should be considered as an optional display element in Primo.

    Rather than show the entire text, just the image if one exists plus the name of the statement eg "Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0)" with translation options for multi-language sites.

  15. 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.

  16. More granular statistics for the actions menu in Primo Analytics
