Due to the health safety challenges and strains faced by many institutions worldwide currently, the Primo working groups of ELUNA and IGeLU have decided to extend this year’s NERS voting period through April 15.
The voting takes place at https://ners.new.igelu.org. This year’s ballot has 100 requests to choose from.
Each organisation has 100 voting points which can be distributed as you wish between the enhancements.
Each member organisation can designate someone to vote using NERS and will need to use their IGeLU or ELUNA organisation ID and password.
The list of organisation IDs and the main contact person for your organisation is here for ELUNA: https://inpress.lib.uiowa.edu/eluna/ and here for IGeLU: https://new.igelu.org/about/membership/member-list. If you experience any difficulties logging in to NERS to register your votes, please contact email@example.com.
Thank you to everyone who submitted enhancement requests for this round. The ELUNA and IGeLU Primo Working Groups gathered the enhancements and prepared them for voting.
You may notice that a request that you saw or submitted does not appear on the ballot. We have tried our best to merge similar requests, and to omit those requests where the functionality is already being developed or is on the Ex Libris Roadmap. Requesters have been notified when this has been the case.
Unless the deployment model is included due to existing functionality, submissions are for parity development in both Primo and Primo VE.
Thank you to the Primo WGs’ joint Enhancements Team for coordinating and preparing this ballot.
Please be aware that voting will close promptly at 12:00am GMT on April 15.
Finally, please find the full schedule for our 2020 process:
