    Collection Discovery Enhancement - Add More Sort Options

    August 2020 PRM-43373
    Since the launch of Collection Discovery, it is apparent that many customers configure their Collection Discovery pages to show only collections or items. With this in mind, we have added separate sort drop-down lists for sub-collections (Sort sub-collections by) and items (Sort items by). This allows users to independently sort sub-collections and items on a collection's discovery page. For sub-collections, users can sort by relevance and title only, and for items, users can sort by author, date (oldest and newest), relevance, and title. The default sort type is now configurable with top-level collections in Alma (see Configuration Options).

    Only relevant sort drop-down lists will appear on the collection's discovery page. Since the collection has only items in the following example, the page displays only the Sort items by drop-down list for the listed items in the collection:

    PVE_SortbyItemsOnly.png

    Sort Filters for Items Only

    If the collection contains both items and sub-collections, the page will display both Sort by drop-down lists to allow each section to be sorted independently.

    Configuration Options

    This functionality is enabled by default. The following table lists all configuration options associated with this functionality.

    Option Description

    Collection Resource Editor page in Alma

    On the Discovery tab, you can set the default sort option in Collection Discovery by selecting one of the following options from the Sort titles by drop-down list under the Display section on the Discovery tab: Relevance, Title, Author, Date - oldest, or Date - newest. If no option is selected or the selection is not relevant to sub-collections, the default sort is Relevance for Collection Discovery in Primo VE.

    Collection Title Sorting Routing mapping table in Alma (Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Discovery Interface Display Logic > Collection Titles Sorting Routine)

    Make sure that codes defined in the Sort Fields Config mapping table in Primo (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables > Sort Fields Config) are also configured in this table.

    Primo_CollectionTitleSortingRoutine.png

    Collection Title Sorting Routine Mapping Table in Alma

    Collection Discovery code table 

    This table allows you to customize and translate the labels associated with this functionality:

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.sortItemsBy: Sort items by

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.sortSubcollectionsBy: Sort sub-collections by

    The following codes were updated to allow for the display of the number of collections and sub-collections in Collection Discovery. If you have customized these codes, make sure that you add the placeholder.

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.collections.title: Collections ({1})

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.subcollections.title: Sub-collections ({0})

    The following codes are no longer in use:

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.lobby.no.collections: ({1}) collections

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.lobby.no.subcollections: ({1}) sub-collections

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.lobby.no.items: ({1}) items

    • default.nui.colldiscovery.sortby: Sort by

    The options for the Sort by filters are customized with the Sort Values Labels code table.

    Search Engine Optimization: Add Metadata Tags to Improve Visibility on the Web

    August 2020 PRM-43402 PRM-42549
    This release includes the following changes to improve the visibility of Primo sites on the Web:

    • Added support for the following open graph meta tags (which are part of Facebook's Open Graph Protocol) in Primo pages to control how their URLs are displayed when shared with social media sites: og:titleog:description, og:url, og:type, and og:image. For example: 

      <meta id="ogTitle" property="og:title" content=""><meta id="ogDescription" property="og:description" content=""><meta id="ogImage" property="og:image" content=""><meta id="ogType" property="og:type" content="website"><meta id="ogURL" property="og:url" content="">

      Primo_OG_Tags2.png

      Display of a Primo Record in Microsoft Teams

      This functionality is supported only for the full view of a record and not for any other Primo page.

    • Added the ability to use the head meta tag to configure the description that appears for the main Primo pages in Web search results. For example: 

      <meta name="description" content="Access to My Library's services and resources, which provided to support the teaching, learning, and research needs of our university.">

      Customers can set this description per institution by modifying the following code in the Header/Footers Tiles code table:

      default.main.descriptionPrimo by Ex Libris

    Mobile Device Usability Improvements to My Favorites

    My Library Card: Disable Edit Option in Personal Details

    August 2020 PRM-47234
    In many cases, borrower information comes directly from corporate systems and cannot be modified from within Primo. With this enhancement, the Edit option can now be hidden on the Personal Details tab in My Library Card since changes in Primo would have no effect in the corporate system.

    Primo_DisableEditOnPersonalDetails.png

    Edit Button Enabled in My Library Card - Default Setting

    Configuration Options

    The Edit button on the Personal Details Tab in My Library Card is displayed out of the box. To hide the Edit button, add the enable_edit_my_library_card property name to the View Properties mapping table (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables) and set its value to false.

    Ongoing Accessibility Improvements (August)

    August 2020 PRM-43323 PRM-42196 PRM-41484
    We are continuously working to improve product accessibility to make it comply with the standard of WCAG 2.0 AA level. In this release, we have resolved the following issues:

    • Added the following ARIA label to the aria Labels code table, which was missing for the Primo Search Box: default.nui.aria.search.searchField.

    • The ARIA label for the Saved Search Alert button was the same for both active and inactive states. This has been fixed by providing a code for each state in the aria Labels code table:

      • default.nui.aria.savedQueriesList.alertSet alert for this saved search

      • default.nui.aria.savedQueriesList.unset.alertUnset alert for this saved search

    Ongoing Primo Analytics Improvements (August)

    August 2020 PRM-42972, PRM-41367, PRM-41686
    Improved the following issues with the Primo Zero Result Searches Report in Primo Analytics:

    • False zero results – In some cases, no results were sent for a search query that did have results..

    • Missing zero results – In some cases, users received no results in the UI, but the searches were not reported or listed in the report. In some cases, customers did not see any reporting of searches with no results.

    The following table lists the new usage actions for features that were added in previous releases.

    Group Subgroup Action Description
    Document General Click on Icon An icon in the brief results was selected by an end user.
    Exploration Resource Recommender Click on "See all suggested resources"

    The See all suggested resources link was selected by an end user.

    Improved Sticky Facets Behavior (NERS #6125)

    May 2020 PRM-40512
    This enhancement improves the behavior of sticky facets by allowing users to apply persistence to all active filters in the Active Filters section. Previously, persistence had to be applied to each filter individually. In addition, this enhancement includes the following changes:

    • Instead of clearing only the non-persistent filters in the Active Filters section, the Reset Filters option in the Active Filters section now behaves like the Library Search button in the main menu, which clears all filters in the Active Filters section, including the persistent filters.

    • The new lk option will be added to the facet and mfacet parameters in a search's URL to mark the persistent filters. This allows you to reuse the URL later and retain the persistent filters in another search session. For example:

      https://MyUnv.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?query=any,contains,test&tab=LibraryCatalog&search_scope=MyInstitution&vid=PRIMO_OAP_INST:Alma&mfacet=tlevel,include,online_resources,1,lk&mfacet=tlevel,exclude,available_p,1,lk

    As in previous releases, removing, modifying, and adding search terms in the search box will continue to retain only the filters that have been made persistent for that search session.

    To make all non-persistent filters persistent:
    1. Perform a search and filter your results by selecting one or more facets individually or in bulk. The non-persistent filters have the white background color. 

      PVE_ActiveFilters1.png

      Adding All Filters to the Persistence List
    2. Select the Remember all filters button to make all filters persistent. When made persistent, the system changes the background color of the filter to yellow.

      PVE_ActiveFilters2.png

      Adding Additional Filters to the Persistence List

      The system disables the Remember all filters button when all filters in the Active filters section are persistent.

    PRM-42350

    Configuration Options

    No configuration is necessary to enable this functionality. It is enabled by default.

    The following table lists the codes used to customize and translate the display labels and tooltips for this enhancement.

    Code Table Description

    Results Tile

    The following codes were added for this enhancement:

    • default.nui.facets.rememberFilters: Remember all filters

    • default.nui.facets.remember.tooltip: Make active filters persistent throughout the session

    • default.nui.facets.allLockedAlert.tooltip: All active filters are now locked for this session

    aria Labels

    The following code was added for this enhancement:

    • default.nui.aria.rememberFilters: Remember all filters

    • default.nui.aria.rememberFiltersDisabled: Remember all filters - Disabled

    • default.nui.aria.rememberFilters.enableControls: Unlock active filters or Select more filters below to enable the remember all button

    Analytics - Sticky Facets

    To support this functionality, the following action has been added to the Action Usage subject area:

    Group Subgroup Action Description

    Results List

    General

    Remember All Filters

    The user selected the Remember all filters option.

    Simplify Data Reload Flow (NERS #6184)

    May 2020 PRM-41603
    Previously, the Delete Data Source and Reload pipe allowed you to harvest records that had been exported since the last time the records were harvested and loaded into Primo. With this enhancement, you can retain the same date for subsequent pipe executions so that you can automatically reload the same set of harvested records.

    Configuration Options

    The Use Static Date field has been added to the Define Pipe page for Regular and Delete Data Source and Reload pipes. When selected, the Start harvesting files/records from field retains the date on which the pipe was first run instead of automatically changing it to the date on which the pipe was last run.

    Support Language Configuration for Voice Search Assistant

    May 2020 PRM-42785, PRM-42494

    For more information regarding the new CDI resource Types, see Resource Types in CDI.

    May 2020 URM-113292
    As with related records in View It, this enhancement allows you to enable/disable the display of related records for physical holdings (Get It) based on whether the item is a serial, a monograph, or a closely related item. In addition, the type of relation is now added to the end of the title, and you can specify whether the closely related items appear in the main list of locations or under the new Locations for Related Titles section.

    Primo_RelatedRecordsExample.png

    Locations for Related Titles in Get It

    Configuration Options

    Access to Google Search Console

    May 2020 PRM-41603

With this enhancement, you can allow Google to monitor the activity of your Primo institution and any Google sitemap files that you have created. For information on creating Google sitemap files, see Primo Generate Sitemap Tool.

    Configuration Options

    To configure this functionality, the HTML Token Validator mapping table has been added (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables). For more details, see Managing Google Sitemaps.

    New SAML Certificate

    May 2020 PRM-39650
    The current DigiCert SAML Certificate will expire in January 2021. If your institution uses this certificate, Ex Libris recommends that you consult with the IT department at your institution, and if required, replace the certificate for Primo. If replacing the certificate, this must be done in coordination with your IDP. For more information, see Managing Certificates and Metadata for SAML Authentication.

    If your institution uses ADFS, Ex Libris highly recommends that you replace the certificate to avoid any complications.

    No immediate action is needed. Replacing the certificate can be done at any time until its expiration on January 1, 2021.

    Expose Webhook for Searching External Indexes

    February 2020 PRM-XXXXX
    Search Webhook (previously called Third Node) enables you to enhance the standard Primo search engine with your own search engine functionality, using the standard Primo services and view. This functionality allows sites to create multiple search webhooks, where each one is designed to work with a different external search engine (such as a regional search index). For more details on this functionality, see Search Webhook in the Ex Libris Developer Network.

    For information on how to add Search Webhooks to your view, see Enabling Search Webhooks in the Ex Libris Developer Network.

    Currently, you are not permitted to blend these webhooks with your local Primo data or any other webhooks.

    Support the Configuration of the Search Box's Focus

    February 2020 PRM-40880
    For desktop applications only, this enhancement allows you to place the focus in the search box by default when various pages (such as Library Search and Journal Search) are opened in the new UI. This allows users to type their queries directly into the search box without having to select the search box first. This is already the case for the classic UI.

    Focus Set in Search Box

    Configuration Options

    To enable this functionality, add the focus_on_search_input parameter to the View Properties mapping table and set it to true. By default, this functionality is disabled.

    Support Usage Information for the Order of Citation Styles

    February 2020 PRM-41694
    This enhancement enables Primo Analytics to track the number of times citation styles by position (a maximum of 20 styles) are selected using the Export to Citation action. This usage information allows you to determine which styles are used the most and to set the order of the styles accordingly.

    Primo_Mobile_ExportCitation.png

    Track Citation Usage by Position

    Analytics - Citation Style

    To support this functionality, the following actions have been added to the Action Usage subject area:

    Group Subgroup Action Description

    Document

    Citation Style

    Citation Style 1, Citation Style 2, ..., and Citation Style 20

    The user selected the citation style at position 1 through 20.

    Support Local Fields in Alma CZ Records

    February 2020 URM-111389
    This enhancement adds support for the following local fields defined in Alma CZ records: 009, 09X, 59X, 69X, 77X, 78X, and 9XX. This allows users to search for and display information from these local display, facet, and search fields in Primo.

    In Alma, CZ records that contain a local field with subfield $$9 set to local are considered local to your institution, and any information stored in this field is not viewable by other institutions and is not overwritten when changes are made to the CZ record by the community. 

    For example:

    <datafield tag="993" ind1=" " ind2=" ">

    <subfield code="a">test_local</subfield>

    <subfield code="9">local</subfield>

    </datafield>

    Configuration Options

    To support these local fields in Primo, you must configure the following:

    1. Define a normalization rule for each local field that you want to support from CZ records.

      For example, if you want to display information from the local field defined above, create the following rule in your normalization rules set:

      NUI_LocalCZ_Field_NormRule.png

      Add Normalization Rule for Local Display Field
    2. Add the local fields to your Primo view. For example, add the local display field to the Details section on the Full Display page.

      To:

      If the library has access to at least one of the collections that use the link in the record and that link is not for an open access item, those collections will be given precedence over the collections that use OpenURL. Links that use a document ID will be given priority over metadata links. If the "link in the record" collection is open access then the OpenURL link will be given precedence.
