    Adding a reference to the new Primo VE Idea Exchange submission for this, for the same premise of barcode search in Primo.

    If developed, it should be for all customers.

    I would also like to add that my preferred development for this would be to do away with the Popular Searches SA completely and replace it with a new Search Strings SA. This should be on the same daily ETL as all the other SAs (unlike the monthly aggregation for Popular Searches), and offer all the other functionality of the other SAs such as granularity of date fields down to the search date by day.

    Note: BIRT is now deprecated as of the February 2019 release.

    I should add as well that I'm aware that such a precise 'only' exact phrase search will drastically limit results returned, especially given the great deal of variation with PCI citations in different collections. In many cases, this is the actual end goal, but it is worth noting. For us, with our Advanced Search usage at around only 8-9% of all searches, I would argue an expectation that users deliberately going to a search titled as 'Advanced' and selecting exact phrase have a greater level of understanding, tolerance and indeed requirement for the need for precision, and that this is exactly the type of user which this enhancement would support.

    We have also noted this undesirable behaviour, of Advanced Search ‘exact phrase’ also including metadata outside the specified phrase.
    As an example, if I choose to do an Author/Creator search by exact phrase for: Marshall Green
    I expect to see results returned where the search PNX creatorcontrib fields have precisely just: Marshall Green
    Instead, I also see additional results such as: Lydia Marshall Green

    smithsonian_soai_biodiversitylibrary_org_item_264605
    <search>
    <creatorcontrib>Green, Lydia Marshall</creatorcontrib>
    <contributor>Lydia Marshall Green (Firm) (Corporate Author)</contributor>

    The OLH describes the exact phrase search as follows:
    "is (exact) – Returns results that contain phrases that exactly match the phrases specified in the query."
    https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Primo/Product_Documentation/050New_Primo_User_Interface/End_User_Help_-_New_UI/020Performing_Advanced_Searches

    This means that currently ‘exact phrase’ is behaving as described and this is not a bug, but I believe that users actually expect the behaviour to be as follows:
    "is (exact) – Returns results that contain phrases that exactly match the phrases specified in the query, and only those phrases."

    This should be remembered from your last search in the session, just like search indexes. Mine for example is pretty much always Institution, as my work means I rarely have a need to search Community. Perhaps experiment with making your last search of the day set to Institution and then check the next morning?

    I would love to see this in Primo, for full text and for record metadata, which are both available in Summon.
    Our site was on Summon when I was studying myself and I constantly used this functionality for my research and assignments, as a key strategy to improve ranking of results for several keywords.
    It is a vital tool for topic searches for beginner and more advanced researchers alike, to help sift through the hundreds of millions of results, by improved targeting of results and moving them into prominent position.

    Like others have noted, this Idea is specifically for being able to search within an itemized set.
    Nothing I can see in the comment by Itai, the linked documentation, or in the UI right now indicates that this is existing functionality.
    The Alma UI displays the persistent search box at the top of the screen when looking at an itemised set, but this is misleading as it does not search as is desirable ie only in results of that set. Instead, it simply initiates a search across the whole repository as if you never chose to open that itemised set at all.
    For example, I could have a saved itemised set of 5000 titles. I know that there is a single title of 'Passport' in this set that I want to remove. At the moment, I have to go page by page for a maximum of 50 results per page, until I find the page with 'Passport' and remove it. If I go to the top of the page to the persistent search box and do a title search on 'Passport', I get more than 100 records which are not all in this set, but are titles across the repository.
    A good outcome of this idea - as I see it IMHO - would be that I could open my itemised set to see all the Members, go directly to the top of the page, use the persistent search box to search titles by 'Passport' which initiates a search just within this set, see the one result for my record in the set, and remove it.

    The OpenURL was added in April 2019, and Article Title and Book Title are also available (not sure from when though).
