NERS Enhancement Voting: Complete for 2023

The 2023 Primo enhancement voting process for round 2 is now complete! More details can be found at the Primo listserv message announcing the results of round 2 of the voting.

The following requests are successful, as the Top 3 ranked and aligning with our 195 available Primo points for 2023:

 Rank ID Title Votes Points
1 8126 Ability to do a bulk export of search results (VE/BO) 6469 120
2 8210 Prevent search results expansion by use of exact phrase (VE/BO) 5654 55

*Note for #8134 that the ELUNA and IGeLU Primo WG/s will be working with Ex Libris Primo Product Management on the list of labels, per the scoping statement.

We’re happy to note that Ex Libris Primo Product Management agreed to add the following two items to the 2024 Roadmap without requiring any community points:

Rank ID Title Votes Points
5 8157 Preserve the formatting of citations copied from Primo (VE/BO) 3503 n/a 15
14 8141 Add ability to configure the display at the item level and the location level in the GetIt section (VE) 1102 n/a 10

The Product Development Collaboration Agreement states that Ex Libris will develop the successful enhancements within one year, which customarily aligns to the IGeLU conference held in September 2024.
