  1. license

    We would like Primo VE to show a license upon the license being approved in Alma.

    Right now, any license that is linked to an item or a collection shows up in Primo VE, even if it is still a draft and in review status.

    So I have had to remove the license from the collection in the meantime under we have the license terms verified.

  2. It should be possible for partners to log in to Primo and see a list over their lending transactions with the library

    It should be possible for partners to log in to Primo and see a list over their lending transactions with the library.

    The Royal Danish Library handles more than 500.000 lending transactions with external partners per year.

    At the moment it is not possible for partners to log in in to Primo and see their transactions.

    This cause a lot of manuel labor for The Royal Danish Library to answer request of status form our partners.

  3. Retain search field keywords when switching to Browse Search

    The following is a request from one of our teaching faculty. "When a subject heading search is performed in [the search scope for my institution's holdings] and the patron then wants to browse other variants of the subject heading and clicks on BROWSE in the top bar, the search box is blank. Then the patron has to retype (or if they are experienced and have copied the subject heading) paste it in and perform the search again. It seems like a simple fix to make the search term sticky so it would automatically populate the browse box."

    Example: https://www.screencast.com/t/w4AEZbPXt3IY

  5. Pin to the result last viewed in Primo after closing the item record

    The current Primo design returns the user to a random earlier page, not necessarily to the same record, after clicking on a search result to open up the item record. So currently, after viewing result no. 24, and closing it, it could return you to result 11 in the Primo search results page.

  6. Add expand search (outside Imperial) into advanced search

    User Story - When staff and users are creating an advanced search. Sometimes they want to search with an expanded search (outside Imperial). However, currently staff have to run the advanced search then click on expand search (outside Imperial). Solution: It would be better if expand search is added to Advanced search as an option.

  14. citation linker - highlight required fields

    I'm suggesting an out of the box configuration option to highlight the required fields in the citation linker. I have adjusted the text, to let our users know that an identifier is required but the text can easily be missed. We recently migrated to Alma/Primo VE and when we had 360/Summon, we were able to highlight the required fields in the citation linker. I am investigating CSS customization options.

  16. Show both in-text and reference citation formats for APA 7

    With version 7 of the American Psychological Association (APA 7) citation format, there are two formats: one for in-text and one for reference citations.

    The first (in-text) is to be used within the body of the text; the second (reference) is to be used in a bibliography.

    There are differences between the two styles. For more information on the differences, please see https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/citations and https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/references.

    It looks like when Primo uses the Citation Style Language (CSL) Repository (https://github.com/citation-style-language/styles) to add styles, it only picks up the In-text format citation from the APA 7 definition on the CSL…

  17. Publish synonym list for hosted non-VE customers in Primo documentation

    It was announced in the Primo mailing lists during August 2021 that the list of synonyms for Primo VE had now been added to the documentation page.

    The equivalent documentation for non-VE Primo customers such as us is at:

    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Product_Documentation/Primo/Technical_Guide/120Linguistic_Features/040Synonyms#ww1052488

    As hosted customers, however, we still can't see the contents of the synonym files as described, as we don't have that sort of server level access. Therefore we are unable to determine:

    (i) whether the non-VE synonym list bears direct comparison to the VE list,

    (ii) if it does not, where the differences lie.

    Significant staff time is taken up…
