    Configuring the Primo Central Search Scope

    The PCI search scope enables users to search PCI e-resources from Primo’s Front End.
    To configure the PCI search scope:
    1. On the Primo Home > Ongoing Configuration Wizards > Views Wizard page, click Edit next to the view that you want to modify.
    2. In the Add Search Scope section on the Search Scope List page, type Primo Central in the Search Scope Name field and click Add.
      The PCI search scope is added to the list.
    3. Click Edit next to the PCI search scope.
      The Edit Search Scope page opens (see Edit Search Scopes Page (Views Wizard)).

    4. In the Third Node Adaptors section, configure the following fields:
      • Primo Central – Select this check box to enable the PCI search scope for the view.
      • Include Results with no full-text – Select this option, if you want users to receive all PCI results, not just the records that contain full text.
        When selected, PCI searches will return all possible results regardless of their availability status. Users can click the Full Text Online facet to filter the results.
        When not selected, the intial results page will display only results that are marked as Full-text Available. To retrieve the full list of results, users can click the Expand my results check box that displays above the facets list.
        For information on how to modify the check box’s label, see Modifying the Expanded My Results Check Box.
