Default item type for e journal articles
When adding a Primo Central electronic journal article title to a readings list, the type defaults to article rather than electronic article.
This would then be more obvious to instructors and students that they are looking at an electronic article instead of a physical article.

This is a very interesting question material type options and preferences. Would perhaps be good to be able to change defaults in some way (assuming people haven't disabled the material type in configuration). Can see why people would like a configurable default for (fulltext) PCI additions via in-line Primo RESTful API searching or Cite It!
E_CR vs CR citation secondary material type was a big question for us at migration, and probably institutions have differing views on whether e- and p- should be distinctly recorded. One thing with just using 'article' could be that you could have multiple services added for a particular resource, electronic, physical, and even digital, I suppose. Probably the situation is a little trickier for Book versus Ebook.
