    Primo VE: please fix the alphabetical sort of the location facet: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/40448281-sort-by-library-in-the-location-facet-when-library

    This is possible in Primo VE, but only as a facet on the same level as the library facet. It should be a sub-facet of the library facets.

    Can't wait for this to get solved! :-)

    Do you have any idea when this will happen?

    Please make the state of the toggle part of the URL, so that we can use it to send precise links and for deep linking.

    Thank you :-)

    Thank you, Nili, I'm really glad to hear this.

    An easy way to achieve this would be:

    In advanced search, let the patrons decide before the search (with checkmarks) if they want FRBR and deduplication on or off in the result list.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    Seeing that with the August 2023 release, FRBR and deduplication will be deactivated in browse search, gives me hope.

    The same should be possible for advanced search.

    Ideally with parameters:
    - setting per view
    - separate settings for FRBR and deduplication
    - library decides default
    - patrons can override the default settings in their account

    > having experienced quite a lot of difficulties both with DeDup and FRBR ...

    I agree, also Deduplication on/off should be a setting the patrons can decide.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    While I still think
    - after advanced search, FRBR should always be deactivated
    - the patrons should be able to switch FRBR off

    the biggest part of the problem is solved in Primo VE with 'equals exact phrase', since May 2023.

    > patron would mistakenly believe that only one match exists

    Yes, this is why FRBR Preferred is not the solution.

    ----

    Thank you for the example, Nancy!

    > If the FRBR settings could be easy user-controlled toggles (like "Expand My
    > Results" and "Search in Full Text", this would be a great solution.

    Yes. The order of those three should be customizable, and the setting for FRBR on/off should be done with the same flexibility as "Search in full text" (which comes with the May 2022 release).

    Ideally, the settings could also be saved as preferences in the patron's account, but that could come later.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Manu Schwendener commented  · 

    In the meantime I learned from Nili Natan that (in Primo VE) the setting
    FRBR Preferred
    is more practical for the patrons than
    FRBR Generic

    It allows them to get to the title they are looking for with only a few clicks, with just the _option_ to see the whole FRBR group.

    Edit: this is a workaround. The real problem is that with Generic, in the resulting list of FRBR versions, the HIGHEST RANKED record from the results set is NOT shown as the first title.

    ---

    The wish that the patrons should be able to deactivate FRBR and that FRBR should be deactivated after any Advanced search still stands.

    > I wonder how to ... name

    For FRBR I think "Turn off grouping" would be understandable.

    This is the clumsy workaround we have at the moment to try and get our patrons to add their email address so we can get back to them.

    Yes, this is important. We need to know the patron's email address to be able to reply.
    Patrons do not understand why nobody replies to their emails, because they have no way of knowing that we don't see who sent them.

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

    – When patrons are not logged in, let them send the email, but force them to fill in a 'sender email' field

    Related: https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308176-primo/suggestions/47295920-add-option-to-control-the-visibility-of-collection

    I don't agree with the option to show the path in Primo, but hide the collection in the collection interface. This would be inconsistent and confusing.

    > to give a results list for students of all items in the collection

    I wouldn't mind if there was an option in Alma to distinguish between 'published collection' (= as they are now), and unpublished (= not the same as suppressed): unpublished would mean you get an URL via Alma that you can share.

    If you don't want to wait for that, you could work with local fields instead.

    Also please deactivate FRBR after any advanced search - or at least make it an option for the patron to deactivate:

    > addition of a visibility checkbox or toggle

    What certainly is missing is the option to toggle visible / invisible from the Manage Collections page!

    And come to think of it, I wouldn't really mind if collections that are not visible in Primo (= not in the collection lobby and not showing the path in the details) could still be shown via a direct link.

    It would be the same as 'unpublished' in other contexts (for example photo sharing sites): not findable, but everybody who knows the direct link can see the collection.

    > welcome any other workarounds

    If you want, maybe also post in the Primo mailing group if others had a similar situation and how they solved it.

    While I understand your wish, I have the feeling that this would be confusing for the patrons, because it would be inconsistent.

    "Why am I seeing the path in the full record display, but can not find it via the collections page?"

    I see two workarounds that would be less confusing, and exist already:

    A) for your second case, use local fields instead of collections

    B) for your second case, use an additional level in the collections. Call the top level something short (like 'others'?), in the description of the top level collection explain what's behind it.
    Like this, you keep the Collections Lobby tidy / only show what you want to show there, but the behaviour of the subcollections within "others" is still consistent.

    > We were able to limit the OTB subject facet to specific vocabularies, such as LCSH.

    We are struggling with this, too.

    If this gets through, the choice of the authority file must be flexible, for us it would be the German GND, for example.

    I agree that this should be more customizable.

    In Primo VE, it is part of the 'Links' section. It should be a separated section that can stay at the bottom of the full title display while we move the 'Link' section higher up.
