  2. Data accompanying article

    How will you keep datasets or articles being lost because they share the time title? It is becoming more and more common for articles to have accompanying data and from your description of match and merge, it seems that this may result in either the dataset or the article being excluded from search results. Thanks for considering!

  3. Select languages for Primo VE UI that would be different than choices for Alma UI.

    Currently all languages used in Alma (for staff) are automatically presented as the UI languages in Primo VE.

    I would like to be able to manage the choices separately, so that we can choose to remove, or to add languages for Primo VE UI. Also, we should be able to sort the language choices in the order we prefer, based on the language in which the UI is open.
    Thank you for your support.

  4. Support Indexing of Collection Type(Alma-D)

    When adding an Alma digital titles, all Alma digital titles are indexed, so it takes a total of three days to be published.
    It takes three days to update the primo collection lobby.

    Please consider that only certain collection types or some collections can be indexed to reduce publishing time.

    • Support Indexing of Collection Type(Alma-Digital)
    • Enable indexing of a range between start and end values.(Alma-Digital)

  5. Advanced search: auto suggest synonyms when using "OR" in the search string

    We would like to have the feature of auto suggesting popular synonyms when adding "OR" in the search string. It is a feature in EDS and we loved it!

  6. Add 12-Hour Due Times Display in Library Card

    Currently, per a setting in Alma, due times in Alma and Primo VE can be set to display in the 12-Hour format (ex. 02/25/2023 5:45 PM PST). However, when a patron views their account in Library Card via Primo VE, due times display there in only 24-Hour format (ex. 02/25/2023, 17:45). Please have due times displayed within Library Card use the same format that is set in Alma.

  7. Support the use of wildcards within phrase searches

    At present, the use of wildcards within a phrase search is not supported in CDI. This functionality is supported when searching local records only but does not work when searching CDI or using a blended scope. Since the goal of discovery is to provide a single point of access to local and remote collections, it follows that both indexes should support the same search functionality and operators.

  8. Allowing the "I only need a specific chapter or pages" checkbox to be defaulted to ticked.

    With the introduction of RapidILL, we have defaulted our resource sharing request form to have a format of "Digital". For consistency, we would also like to be able to have the "I only need a specific chapter or pages" checkbox default to being ticked so this matches the format.
    The client could then choose to untick (which changes the form format to Physical) if they wish to request a loan.
    Thanks
    Elizabeth

  9. holdings information search "starts with"

    When searching for Holdings Information in advanced search then changing the operator option to "Starts with", changes the search to Title rather than holding information.
    The "starts with" operator should only be an option when the user is using the Title Search operator.

  10. Make the DOI field on the Full Record page a link including EZproxy

    Currently on the Primo Full Record page, the DOI field is not a link to the resource. Please make this a link with the option to prepend your EZproxy URL to the DOI links. (Summon added this feature in 2021.)

  11. Show item availablity on the top level for 'Group Locations by Library in Get It'

    In April 2022 we got the "Group Locations by Library in Get It" feature: https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Release_Notes/002Primo_VE/2022/010Primo_VE_2022_Release_Notes#Group_Locations_by_Library_in_Get_It-98574

    To save users' time when it comes to finding out whether an item is available or not, would it be possible to show the item availability already on the top level, for each library? Color coding wouldn't hurt either, indicating instantly whether a location has the item available or not.

    A rough example in the attached files.

  12. Multi-select and Typeahead search fields (e.g. language)

    Currently Primo VE only allows a user to select one language at a time via dropdown. This is a poor user experience that doesn't allow users to multiple languages at once, and makes the dropdown more difficult to use as more options are added to it.

    Having an interface where the user can select multiple items at once as well as type to suggest a language will allow more flexibility for users researching items in specific languages

  13. One index in Primo VE for browing call number

    Currently, call numbers with different call number types must be browsed separately, using different call number indexes.

    It will be beneficial for both library staff and clients to be able to Browse only one call number index (combining different call number types in the one index) in Primo VE without having to think about which index their call number belongs to.

  15. More thumbnail source options or additional parameters needed for Primo VE

    Would like the ability to either pull from CDI source fields for thumbnails for example the way the CDI for Naxos can use {{control/sourcerecordid}} to build the link for online access. We need to be able to use this same field to pull in the thumbnail automatically. Alternately or in addition another option would be to allow additional logic from another Marc field to determine whether a field should be used. e.g. Use 035a for $$LinkingParameter1 IF 040a = Naxos.

  16. Remove journal categories

    Make it possible to remove or hide irrelevant HILCC categories from the Browse Journals by Category feature. Currently, trying to remove a category from the hierarchy leaves a gap in the visual display. Because the hierarchy has a very US-focused perspective, many of the categories are not relevant for institutions outside of the US.

  17. Collection discovery display shut off independent of collection path display

    We would like the ability to have a collection not display with other collections in collection discovery but yet still have the collection link available in the collection path to give a results list for students of all items in the collection.

    Just a toggle on or off for collection discovery display is needed. Right now, we have to suppress the collection to avoid display, but then it removes the collection path link too.

  18. Purchase Request - only allow certain users to put in a request if identifier finds a match on our holdings

    If a purchase request finds a match on our holdings, it will warn the patron of it existing on our catalogue and provide a link to view the record, but still provide the option to submit the request afterward.

    Would like it so the option to submit request can be made hidden from certain groups of users (Display Logic Rule?). i.e. Make it so Students won't be able to submit a request if it exists on our holdings, but still allow it for Staff

  19. Allow themes to overwrite/override SASS files

    One of the biggest difficulties when theming Primo VE is getting link, background, and search bar colors consistent across the different page types. Because the underlying theme uses lighter and darker variations of colors, just editing the color file isn't enough. This leaves us looking for every variation of selector using browser inspect tools, which is time consuming and very hit-or-miss.

    Being able to override the SASS, even if it's only for the complete list of color and font selectors, would be extremely helpful and make theme development more clear-cut and efficient.

  20. Newspapers search API

    For libraries who use the Primo APIs (https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com/primo/apis/) for their bento box discovery service, it is not possible to extract results from a Newspaper search using the Primo Rest API when the Newspaper search is enabled. Libraries can only extract Newspaper articles through the API using the resource type “Newspaper articles” without the Newspapers search enabled, which means far less content, and far less relevant content. However, by enabling the Newspapers search, libraries can expose significantly more news-oriented results from the many newspapers search only sources that libraries have access to that will increase relevance. However, if a…
