    The Primo View It Tab

    The View It tab (which displays on the Services Page and during the discovery of local Alma records in Primo) can list up to 25 services and related services, which allow users to access or view the resource:
    Example Electronic Resource
    If configured, additional services may also display in the View It tab. For more information, see Adding a General Electronic Service.
    • The View It service can be integrated with any third-party discovery system that is configured to use a SAML-based identity provider for both Alma and the discovery interface authentication. For detailed information, see
    • It is not recommended to perform searches on different tabs in your browser and request View It or Get It information from a tab in which the last search was not performed.
