Primo VE Keyword Widget

Primo VE Keyword Widget

This Widget allows an institution to create the code for a customized Search Box for their Primo VE interface. Libraries will want to use this tool to put a search box on their website or within a Libguide page.

URGENT: Two fixes deployed August 12. Create a new search box using the search box builder.

How to Use It

To create a box:

  1. Go to the following page: The following screen should appear:

  2. From the main page, choose your institution from the pull-down menu.
  3. Select the type of search you need to perform. The options are: Everything, Library Catalog, Statewide Catalog, Articles, and Course Reserves.
  4. Set the Show Expanded Results. The default is set to OFF, which means that the search box will only display articles that have full text.
  5. Click Construct.

A search box will appear along with the corresponding code.

Use the search box to test the code. If it works as expected, just copy the code listed in the light green box and insert it into your website or Libguide.
