How can we improve Alma?

Searching for a title with "&" should also search "and" when searching for PO lines and invoices

When searching for a title in any of the Acquisitions (i.e. Order Lines, Invoices, Vendors, Funds, etc.) filters, searching for a title containing "and" should also pull up any results with an ampersand (&) in the title.

e.g. Searching the title "Law and Inequality" will not find the title's PO line unless it is spelled as "Law & Inequality."

        I agree, this would save a lot of time when title searching

        This would be helpful as we have so many core medical textbooks's with the & in but users do not always know the exact spelling

        It would also be useful if a search on "and" picks up titles with "&" in the title in the persistent title searches on Alma
