PriView v2.0

PriView v2.0 is a MS Windows application that helps you view, analyze, and troubleshoot records as they make their way through Ex Libris’ Primo® system.

You provide a system number, and PriView displays that record in your OPAC's MARC view, along with the Primo Source Record and PNX record.

Each field in the PNX record is hot linked to the normalization rule that created it. Rules can be inspected, summarized, searched, and archived from within PriView.

Versions 1 and 2 of Primo are supported by PriView v.2.0.

System Requirements
An installation of Ex Libris' Primo, versions 1 or 2
Administrative access to the Primo Back Office
A PC running Windows XP (preferred) or Vista.
Minimum screen resolution of 1024 X 768
An installation of MS Internet Explorer on the computer. (IE 6 preferred.)

PriView v2.0 is provided free of charge to the Ex Libris Primo user community. It is offered without warranty of any kind. Use it at your own risk. Neither Glenn Manino nor Boston College is liable for damages of any kind resulting from the running of this software or using the information it produces.
