    Paging Through Search Results in Primo VE

    Return to menu

    To provide accessibility features and also allow researchers to track results on a per page basis, paging allows you to load more results and to access specific pages within the results. Because Primo's pagination loads more results instead of just showing the results from a single page, you can scroll up and down to view all loaded results without having to return to the previous or next pages.

    When your search results contain more than 10 records, Primo displays the Pagination control panel.

    From the control panel, you can perform the following actions:

    • NextPage_icon.png – Scroll down to the next page, or loads the next page of results (maximum of 10 records).

      To load more results, users can also scroll to the bottom of the page and click the LOAD MORE RESULTS link.

    • PrevPage_icon.png – Scroll up to the previous page.

    • TopOfPage_icon.png – Scroll to the top of the results. This option appears when you have loaded at least three pages.

    • PageSelector_icon.png – Select a specific page of results (up to five pages), which may or may not have been loaded previously. Typically, it allows you access the current page and the two previous and next pages directly.

      You can also modify the offset parameter in the search URL to display results for a specific page. Each page contains up to 10 records. To display the second page, you would need to add the &offset=11 parameter to the URL. For example:

      http://myPrimoServer/discovery/search?query=any,contains,ACT&tab=Everything&search_scope=MyInst_and_CI&sortby=rank&vid=PRIMO_OAP_INST:Alma&lang=en&offset=11
