    I don't agree. This should be the users' decision: if they want to open a link in a new tab, they can do so.

    (See also the two references in my first comment).

    I completely agree.

    No:

    I completey agree that this is a basic function of a library catalog.

    Same problem for German. We need the local data to be set to
    "ä" -> "ae", "ö" -> "oe", "ü" -> ue.

    Same should be possible for CDI.

    Excluding several facets at once is possible, but only _after_ you included at least one facet.
    Not ideal..

    Change background of the exclude icon (thank you, FF):

    .available-facets .section-content .md-chips .md-chip .md-button:before
    {background-color: #fff; }

    Example https://basel.swisscovery.org/discovery/search?query=any,contains,css&tab=UBS&search_scope=UBS&vid=41SLSP_UBS:live&lang=en

    ----

    If somebody knows how to right align the icons, please let me know.

    Change border colour of the include check box:

    md-checkbox .md-icon {
    border-color: #DDD;
    }

    ---

    Change background colour of 'Apply Filters':

    .multiselect-submit .multiselect-submit-inner .md-button.md-primary, .prm-positive-bg {
    background-color: #008488;
    }

    .multiselect-submit:hover .multiselect-submit-inner:hover .md-button.md-primary:hover, .prm-positive-bg:hover {
    background-color: #A5D7D2;
    }
    ---

    Change the colour of the exclude icon:

    .available-facets .section-content .md-chips .md-chip .button-exclude {
    color: #ECECEC;
    }

    There's another problem with the UX as it is at the moment:
    When you do an OR selection by putting a checkmark left to several facets at once, this only works correctly for facets within the same facet type.
    If you combine facets from different types, the search that is done is AND, not OR.

    "making the filter options static - including the persistent (lock) option- would go a long way to improving the usability of facets for users."

    This is also true in Primo VE.

    Yes, this is important. We need to know the patron's email address to be able to reply.

    – For logged in patrons, use their email address as sender.

    – When a patron is not logged in, either hide the email icon or force the patron to log in when clicking on the icon

    Also allow different sorting depending on the chosen interface language:

    – for the list of languages in advanced search: we want to have the most common languages first, above a longer list that is sorted alphabetically. At the moment, this can only be done corretly for one of our 4 language interfaces

    Did not make it through NERS 2021. There is at the moment only 1 other idea with more votes.

    I agree with Helen Barrell, January 2020:

    Ok.

    Personally I'd like to have both options then, but import would be a good first step.

    Even better: bring back the proxy function for staff users that exists in Aleph.

    So that updating the proxy account automatically updates all linked accounts, too.

    Only _link_ the users to the profiles, so that when you update the profile the linked users are updated automatically.

    While some (but not all) of the points mentioned here are solved by now, I'd also like to point to https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/42566068-add-very-compact-display-option-1-row-per-title

    If there was a much more compact additional display option, a lot of the problems with getting through long result lists would be less painful.
