Configuring a ‘Collection Discovery’ search in Summon
Unlike Primo customers, Summon users cannot navigate to the Collections Lobby to find items available as part of Alma Collections unless they click into the details page of a record and scroll down to the bottom where they are presented with the ‘see more from *** collection’. A simple search in Summon is searching within everything we have in Alma (and published to Summon) - so individual titles are appearing in the results. But the collection names are not searchable. Summon is not able to provide a similar "Collection Discovery" search to Primo. Summon' s design is not based on collection/database level. So, the infrastructure is not allowing to provide a similar search feature like Primo. However, for Summon over Alma customers who use Alma Collections, this feature is essentially lost.
As is the case with Primo, we would like ‘Collection Discovery’ to be available as a search in the Main Menu Bar of Summon in order for our users to navigate to the Collections Lobby.
