Primo VE offers an accurate auto-complete based on the journal titles held or subscribed by the university (a separate auto complete than Primo search). Instead of having the user click on a letter and get hundreds of journals in that letter they can start typing and get a much more relevant list. This was based on feedback from many customers that the A-Z is 'old fashioned' and not relevant in our days of many thousands of journals which is not usable for end users - and that an accurate auto complete would be more usable as they would start typing the 1st few letters of their journal and get their relevant journals.
The Primo VE Journal Search goes beyond the traditional link resolver journal search interfaces, offering both electronic and print journals making it the 1st true representation of all the journals an institutions holds or subscribes to (as opposed to just electronic before). Primo VE also offers a 'search within' feature that allows the user to search for articles in that are part of the journal they are interested in.
We do have plans in the roadmap to add browsing the journals by hierarchical categories as well.
