    What's New in February?

    To download other formats of the presentation, select the following links: WebEx or PDF.

    Upcoming Issues to Note

    1. As previously communicated, beginning with the February 2021 release of Primo, we will no longer support the installation of Primo SPs (Service Packs) on Primo environments running Solaris/SunOS. Local Primo (on-premises) customers will receive an error if they attempt to install new SPs on a Primo server running Solaris/SunOS.

    2. Since the application will increase its memory consumption by about 10% with the upgrade to JDK 11, it is recommended that on-premises customers increase the memory on their servers accordingly.

    May Sneak Peek

    • Configure number of results per page and change the current behavior of Load More results to pagination.

    • (NERS) Improve searches that include hyphens (for example, searches for chat-room should also return results that include chatroom).

    Features

    Improved Pagination Experience

    May 2021 PRM-39882
    In the new Primo UI, users can now specify whether to display 10, 25, or 50 results per page on the following pages:

    • Simple and Advanced search results

    • Journal Search

    • Database Search

    • Browse Search (records page only, not the main Browse page)

    • Citation trail

    • Related items (book chapter, book review, and so forth)

    • Newspaper Search

    In most cases, the new pagination method will be used for the above pages and users will have the option to display the next/previous set of results by selecting the right/left arrow or display a specific set of results by selecting a page number.

    In the following example, the user has selected a maximum of 10 results per page and is currently viewing the second set of 10 results:

    Primo_NumberOfResultsAndPaginationSelection.png

    Number of Results and Page Selection
    • The Results Per Page setting is applied to all types of pages listed above and is retained for the entire session for all users. In addition, this setting applies to the number of items displayed in Collection Discovery.

    • For simple and advanced search results, blocks of search results are displayed as follows for each remote search type:

      • MetaLib – Users will continue using the old method of selecting Load More Results, which appends more results to the same page. Because MetaLib returns 30 results in each bulk, the number of results displayed in Primo is based on the number of results the user has selected for the new paging method and the number of results left to display from each bulk returned from MetaLib:

        • 10 – Each bulk will contain a maximum of 10 results.

        • 25 – If there are 60 results, the first and third bulks will contain 25 results and the second and fourth bulks will contain the remaining 5 results left in each bulk of 30 returned from MetaLib. 

        • 50 – Each bulk will contain a maximum of 30 results.

      • CDI, Search WebHooks, EBSCO, and WorldCat – Results display with the new pagination method.

    • The search results are refreshed and returned to the first page each time the Results Per Page field is changed.

    Configuration Options

    For the May release, the new pagination method is disabled by default to allow customers time to adjust any customizations that they may have made to the existing Load More Results area and Paging widget. For August, the plan is to resolve the related known issues and replace the old method for loading pages (except for MetaLib searches) with the new pagination method.

    The following table lists the configuration options associated with this feature.

    Element Description

    Institution Properties mapping table (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables)

    Set the enable_results_per_page parameter to true to activate the new pagination method for your institution. If this parameter does not exist, you will need to add a new mapping row for it.

    View Properties mapping table (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables)

    Set the suspend_watchers_browser_support parameter to ALL to optimize the performance of the new pagination method.

    Results Tile code table (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Code Tables)

    To customize or translate the label for the Results Per Page field, which appears at the bottom of the various search results pages, update the following code:

    default.nui.results.resultsPerPage: Results Per Page

    aria Labels code table (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration > All Code Tables)

    For screen readers, you can customize or translate the following associated codes:

    • default.nui.aria.paging.numberOfResults: Display {{number}} results per page

    • default.nui.aria.paging.currentNumberOfResults: Current results per page: {{results}}

    • default.nui.aria.currentPage: Current Page: {{page}}

    • default.nui.aria.paging.gotopage: navigate to result page {{number}}

    Analytics

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

    Group Subgroup Action Description
    Results List General Change number of results per page User changed the Results Per Page field on a results page.

    Improve Search with Hyphens

    May 2021 PRM-44537

    Local respository searches that include a search term with a hyphen will now return additional results by including the term's compound word in the search. For example, searches for the term chat-room, will also include results for chat room and chatroom. Previously, the system only added results for chat room. The supported terms are based on the same terms used for CDI results and are stored in the eng_systemSynonyms file. For more details, see Hyphenated Search Terms. For Cloud customers, please open a Support ticket if further enrichment is necessary.

    Topic/Reference Entry: Update Display Source

    May 2021 PRM-44503
    The database name that was displayed as the source of a reference in the Topic Overview was previously based on the client activation and could be unrelated to the source of the record. With this enhancement, the Source field is now determined as follows:

    • Use addata/jtitle if it exists.

    • If the previous source does not exist, use addata/btitle if it exists.

    • If nether exist, the Source field will not be displayed.

    Topic Overview

    Ongoing Accessibility Improvements (May)

    May 2021 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:

    • The page titles will now include the title of the Primo site and additional information specific to the page. For example:

    Ongoing Analytics Improvements (May)

    May 2021 PRM-44904
    As part of our ongoing improvements, the following change was made to Primo Analytics:

    • A column for the Sticky Facets Used flag has been added to the Primo Zero Result Searches report.

    Show Loading Indicator for Alma Get It and View It

    February 2021 NERS NERS Enhancement (ID #6440) PRM-44007
    Because View It and Get It require additional processing to fetch and load information, they may not load as quickly as other sections on the page. With this enhancement, an indication has been added to each section to let users know that information is still loading.

    Primo_LoadingIndicatorViewIt.png

    Loading Indicator in View It

    Configuration Options

    This functionality requires no new configuration, but you can customize the indicator by modifying the following CSS in your customization package:

    prm-alma-mashup{
         iframe{
              background-image: url("../img/diamonds-loading.gif");
              background-repeat: no-repeat; 
              background-position: center;
         }
    }

    Recent Search Suggestions

    February 2021 PRM-43977
    Previously when users typed their query, Primo displayed autocomplete suggestions based on the metadata index only. With this enhancement, autocomplete suggestions for Primo simple searches are extended to include suggestions based on simple searches stored in My Favorites > Search History.

    When users select a recent search suggestion, Primo performs the search using the same search terms, tab, and scope of the matching search in Search History. Only the matching search and tab display for the recent suggestion.

    Primo_SavedSearches_Autocomplete.png

    Autocomplete Suggestions from Search History

     

    • Suggestions will start to appear after a user types at least two characters.

    • For all users, Primo will display only one recent suggestion, which is based on the most recent simple search in Search History.

    • For signed-in users, Primo will now retain the last 100 searches (including Advanced Search queries) in Search History. For more information, see Persistent Search History for Signed-In Users.

    Configuration Options

    This functionality is enabled by default at the institution level. If you would like to disable it, clear the Show Recent Search check box in the Institution Wizard (Primo Home > Ongoing Configuration Wizards > Institution Wizard).

    February 2021 PRM-43449
    Previously, CDI returned only the $$E subfield in the links/linktorsrc PNX field, which did not allow the link's label from being translated separately from the provider name. For example:

    <links>
        <linktorsrc>$$Uhttps://www.jstor.org/stable/resrep02650?pq-origsite=summon$$EAccess_content_in_JSTOR</linktorsrc>
    </links>

    With this enhancement, CDI will continue to support the existing $$E subfield but will add the $$F (label) and $$G (provider) subfields to allow the label to be translated. For example:

    <links>
        <linktorsrc>>$$Uhttps://www.jstor.org/stable/resrep02650?pq-origsite=summon$$EAccess_content_in_JSTOR$$FAccess_content_in$$GJSTOR</linktorsrc>
    </links>

    If the CDI record does not contain both the $$F (label) and $$G (provider) subfields, Primo will use $$E for the link in the Link section of the record's full display.

    In addition, if CDI does not return provider-specific information but returns the default text without the provider in $$E, you may translate this default text.

    <links>

    <linktorsrc>$$Uhttp://hdl.handle.net/10256.1/2568$$EView_full_text_in_collection</linktorsrc>

    </links>

    Configuration Options

    To support the customization and translation of the $$F and $$E subfields, you can now customize the following codes in the Full Display Labels code table, respectively:

    • default.fulldisplay.Access_content_in: Access content in {{provider}}

    • default.fulldisplay.View_full_text_in_collectionView full text in collection

    Persistent Search History for Signed-In Users

    February 2021 PRM-43977
    Previously, search history was tracked per session and was not saved between sessions in My Favorites. For signed-in users, Primo will now store the last 100 searches in My Favorites > Search History so that they are retained for suggestions in future sessions. Selecting a search's Pin icon will copy the item to Saved Searches and remove it from Search History. Although the same search can appear in Search History more than once, you will not be able add the same search to Saved Searches more than once.

    • Under Search History, the row containing the date no longer includes the time at which the search was performed.

    • During a session, searches performed prior to sign-in are not retained after sign-in. After sign-in, Search History will include searches from previous sessions and new searches performed after sign-in.

    Primo_PersistentSearchHistrory_Pin.png

    My Favorites > Search History - Pin Icon

    Under Search History, users can easily remove searches from their history by selecting them either individually or in bulk and then selecting the Delete icon.

    Primo_PersistentSearchHistory_Delete.png

    My Favorites > Saved Searches - Delete Icon

    For information on how to disable this functionality, see How to disable the option to save authenticated user's Persistent search history.

    UX Improvements to My Favorites

    February 2021 PRM-41651
    With this release the following usability improvements have been made to My Favorites:

    • When removing a record or group of records from My Favorites, users will now receive a prompt to confirm the deletion of the saved records:

      PVE_DeleteSavedRecord.png

      Row Action to Remove a Single Item
    • When adding or removing labels, the page no longer refreshes and focus stays on the current page.

    • After removing a record or records, the page will refresh and retain focus on the last item marked for deletion.

    Configuration Options

    This behavior does not require any configuration unless you want to customize or translate any of the following display labels in the Favorites Labels code table.

    Favorites Labels Code Table
    Code Description
    default.nui.favorites.removeSingleItem Remove this item?
    default.nui.favorites.removeSelected Remove selected items?
    default.nui.favorites.remove.no NO
    default.nui.favorites.remove.ok REMOVE IT
    default.nui.favorites.removeSelected.no NO
    default.nui.favorites.removeSelected.ok Remove selected

    Additional Enhancements

    • May 2021 PRM-44545
      The labels on the Edit Search Scopes page in the Views Wizard have been changed to reflect the switch to Central Discovery Index (CDI), which replaces our Primo Central Index (PCI).
    • May 2021 PRM-42246
      Course information in a record's Full Display page will no longer link to Leganto reading lists that are not published. To support this functionality, ensure that the display/crsinfo field in your Alma MARC normalization rules checks the CNO $$v subfield for the DRAFT indication as follows:

      Primo_AlmaMARC_NormRule_CRSINFO.png

      Normalization Rule for Display/CNO Field in PNX

      To see the effect of this change, a re-index is required.

    • May 2021 PRM-44395
      The following changes have been made to the Institution Wizard to improve the configuration and management of institutional IP addresses in the Institution Wizard:
      • Filter – A filter has been added to the top of the list to help locate IP addresses in long lists.

      • Description – This new field allows you to add a description to IP addresses to identify and find specific addresses in long lists.  

      Primo_EditIPs_Improvements.png

      Edit IPs Page in Institution Wizard
    • May 2021 PRM-45140, PRM-42547
      Targeted for Israeli customers: Updated the Hebrew synonyms file with the version that was recently reviewed and approved by MELI (Ex libris' Israel community). In addition, Primo removed the mechanism that sends the name identification to Melingo (Hebrew search plug-in) and instead allows Melingo to identify names by context.
    • February 2021 PRM-44598
      Primo has been upgraded to JDK 11. For more details, see Upcoming Issues to Note.
    • February 2021 PRM-43901 SF: 503579
      For Hebrew searches, cancelling the distance limitation between words solved issues raised when searching by Subject for the following examples: פרשנות ביאליק or צבא ופוליטיקה. Note that this change, which was as requested by the community, could affect the ranking in other cases.
    • February 2021 PRM-44149
      Primo is now translated out of the box for Welsh.
    • February 2021 PRM-43223
      The Basic search with pre-filter action under the Action Usage subject area is now sent to Primo Analytics with the search scope type.
    • February 2021 PRM-39579
      Mixed directional text (including Hebrew) in brief display and details in full display is now ordered correctly. For more details, see Handling Bidirectional Text in Display Fields.
    • February 2021 PRM-41942
      If a PNX record includes URIs. For example:

      <uri>$$Asubject$$VLongwall mining--Australia$$U(uri) http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh85078310</uri>

      <uri>$$Asubject$$VCoal mines and mining--Australia$$U(uri) http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh93008548</uri>

      Primo will now use JSON-LD to implement Schema.org. For example:

      "about": [

      { "@type": "Thing", "name": "Longwall mining--Australia", "sameAs": [ "(uri) http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh85078310" ] }

      ,
      {
      "@type": "Thing",
      "name": "Coal mines and mining--Australia",
      "sameAs": [
      "(uri) http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects/sh93008548"
      ]

      To learn more about Schema.org in Primo, you can inspect the element of Schema.org within the record's Full Display.

    Resolved Issues

    • May 2021 PRM-44736

    • May 2021 CDI-384 SF: 921417, 931342, 937337
      For CDI, one word searches of 6 letters or more that include digits are now searched on additional ID fields so that one-word PMID searches such as "11264061" should now return the corresponding record. This fix will be available on June 9, 2021.
    • May 2021 CDI-20322 SF: 861480
