How can we improve Summon?

Provide the ability to separate books and ebooks when searching.

Currently, we cannot search print books only. We can separate ebooks/books if we want ebooks only be either selecting the full text limiter or the electronic books subject limiter. However, we can't do the same for print (hard copy books).

        That said, I would like to be able to do this more generally for all content types. So rather than having separate content types for "video recording" and "video streaming" you would just have video and then the option for physical or online. This could apply to books, music, audio and more. I guess when RDF is in place .... one can dream.

        This may be to do with the way we've mapped our MARC records, but we exclude ebooks by selecting our library locations. See our custom search box at https://www.griffith.edu.au/library and select the Books radio button. There is the pull down for print only, electronic only and both.
