    Personalizing Search Results in Primo VE

    Return to menu

    Introduction

    Personalized settings allow users to boost the rankings of electronic records that match their preferred disciplines.This type of ranking is particularly helpful for ambiguous searches, where search results come from a variety of disciplines or include a large set of articles. It does not replace topic facets or act as a filter. It simply adjusts the ranking algorithm to the general discipline of the user.
