Known Issues with the new UW Libraries Search

Quick Cite Option
A quick copy-and-paste citations feature (ala WorldCat) is not present in Primo.  It is on the list of requested ehancements, but there is currently no ETA on a fix.

RefWorks
To export a single record, use the "Send To" link in the results list and then select Refworks. Multiple records can be exported from your e-Shelf using the "Push to" link, although some patrons are reporting issues exporting multiple records. Some data messiness that requires manual cleanup has been reported.

EndNote Web
To export a single record, use the "Send To" link in the results list and then select EndNote. Multiple records can be exported from your e-Shelf using the "Push to" link, although some patrons are reporting issues exporting multiple records

Zotero
At this time, exporting directly to Zotero works as expected.

Mendeley
At this time, exporting directly to Mendeley is broken and there is no ETA on a fix. 

Workarounds: Save single or multiple  records as RIS using the "Send to" or "Push to" links. Keep the default encoding (UTF-8). In Mendeley, import the RIS file by clicking on File>Import>RIS.
