Include authority cross-references in Browse Bib Headings

The very useful Browse Bib Headings tool includes only information from bib records. It would be extremely useful if it also included authority cross-references for controlled headings, similar to how the Primo browse works. This way, if a user tries to use the Browse Bib Headings and enters the non-preferred term, the cross-reference will let them know that they need to search on the preferred term.

        At the State Library of NSW we find the browse search immensely useful. We agree it would be greatly enhanced by the addition of authorities.

        I have run out of votes but definitely support this.
