Wednesday Webinar Series - Hosted by the CCLC Library Consortium - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Jeff, can you share your Powerpoint? Thanks.
yes - slides will be shared along with the recording.
On the wiki? Or emailed out to the list?
wiki -- just a moment I'll get the link
omg - love this!
Good "tweaking" of labels. ;)
How well does that Loan Period label reflect exceptions?
testing our Zoom skills!
Does anyone have experience with adding custom script to the .js file to include a library help chat box to Primo? I've verified with LibraryH3lp that the code in the .js file is correct. But when I upload the zipped folder with the js script in it, it just... doesn't appear. I've tried it in both Primo Studio and in Alma.
@Erin -- yes, though ours is for LibAnswers chat box
at the end of this presentation we include a link to our customization package
@Erin, I can concur that adding JS isn't always straightforward
Erin, please email me later- no answers, but we also use LibraryH3lp. Catherinefirstname.lastname@example.org
Okay. I guess I was wondering if anyone else had had the experience of uploading a package to Primo Studio or Alma and not seeing changes reflected.
Yes. We have the LibraryH3lp working. https://caccl-glendale.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?vid=01CACCL_GLENDALE:GLENDALE
@Erin, Absolutely, I would have to revisit what we did to finally get it working for us
@Erin We had a problem by not adding a function at the end of the file. Try adding this to the end of your custom.js file: }) ();
This is great advice, everyone. I will send out an email to LibraryH3lp people after this webinar. Thank you.
"if not mobile, then..."
This is VERY helpful!
Yes @Stephanie, that was kind of shocking -- custom.js was missing the final () that allows the js to actually execute
direct quote: "there's a lot of clicking"
what is your mechanism for reporting errors? Primo does not have a built in bad-link reporter, correct?
If "Link 1" is "bad", will the system jump to "Link 2", etc.?
@Tom, unfortunately no. It is possible to rank link sources if you know that some are better than others.
@Jeff I put in a ticket and they told me they were going to fix that
is this Institution level setting?
@Becka we wrote an AngularJS component for a problem report -- it leads to a php file that pre-fills some info and then emails to a LibAnswers queue
@Stephanie.They will fix for your library or for all?
We did direct link for half a day (around December/January) and found broken links happening as a result way too often at the time. We haven't revisited it.
I asked about ranking full text sources in the link resolver in May. Was told that customization was broken and would be fixed over summer.
@Stephanie, yes it was broken, and it did get fixed (June release I think)
@Ken, yes --- direct linking is at institution level -- all LACCD libraries would have to want the change
I think we should try it @ LACCD
I do to, but should look at how links are ranked
and this is a big enough change that discovery group for @laccd should discuss and get feedback from libraries before deciding on the change
Show us more stuff please!
So, all these modifications from css modifications to direct linking, if they affect one campus in a multi-campus district, they'll affect all of them?
not all of them
@Jonathan -- not all
The direct linking, yes
But all of the CSS changes can be configured at the view level
The citation generator-- there are issues on how they handle a record that comes up in Primo that's "not traditional" such as a reference book entry. I understand if they can't correctly include the electronic resource part of a citation (database/vendor, date accessed, etc.) but when they are totally off like a reference book entry and other types of resources that Primo "gets" in their indexing, I'm concerned and have debated having it turned off outright.
labels are at the institution level, though, right?
This could be an entire presentation :)
@Norman, I think you have to weigh how many more times that citation generator is going to help rather than hinder
Hi Jeff, do we need know if the elements come from AngularJS or just pure CSS?
The session is very helpful where we could apply right away. thanks.
have you had any success including elements like heat maps?
to get feedback?
Please give Jeff a reason to present on Angular JS!
I would love a session on AngularJS!
I have a question on the Physical Item Not Available label. Does changing to “checked out” affect items that are not available to check out (for example, our reference collection)?
We want AngularJS!
Do these configurations "stick" when Ex Libris puts out product updates or do you have to re-do them when there's an upgrade?
@Brooke -- good question. Hang on so I can give you an accurate response :)
@Lori, in theory, all customization package items should remain the same. Unfortunately, I've noticed things that were working the way I expected before change recently. Very frustrating.
The report a problem feature is very nice.
Jeff, not to labor the issue right now, but can you explain where angular js plugs in to the Alma coding? we have the css file, for example, but where would the Angular JS sript reside? alongside the CSS? within it?
What if an exception is created to the TOU for an item?
Couldn’t get here earlier. Will a recording link be sent out?
@Amy - Thanks! Yes, I remember this being complicated when we configured our labels
Yes, Rachel :)
@Rachel - yes - in the Wiki. Jeff posted the link earlier.

re: displaying loan period in your primo -- is that something that is configured at the institution or view level?
the label is at the instution level
displaying it at all
ours doesn't show up
I know this is silly, but on the main primo search page how did you change the color of the search icon in the main search bar?
so I was wondering if that was hidden by default or across the institution or by accident :)
@Elizabeth, I believe this will show in our customization package. We've tried to be very good about commenting in the code
thats great, thanks you.
Can you please post the link to this?
wow, very cool. Thanks for showing us.
Semi related question to Bitbucket and tracking work… How are folks maintaining their Letters xsl?
That’s really nice!
Really great presentation. Thank you!
Wow. More reason for me to take an html/css class.
Thank you so much, Amy & Jeff, as well as everyone who shared and participated. Incredible individuals & resources.
Thank you both, Amy & Jeff!
Lots to process

Going to need to re-watch this a few times :)
