Display of journal article duplicates
Users of Search@CSU Library have noticed significant changes to the way in which their search results are displayed. Some users have reported that a single journal article may display multiple times in their search results in Search@CSU Library.
Why does this occur? Information about the library’s database holdings is gathered together in an index called Primo Central. Primo Central feeds this information into Search@CSU Library. A journal article may be housed in more than one database, however, and so can appear more than once in the search results. This issue is being addressed in a service pack designed to ‘de-duplicate’ journal article search results. Library staff are currently testing the service pack with the aim of implementation in July.
