Number and sort the volumes in multi-volume works
With the March 2021 release we got "Related Link for Series Added Fields 80X-83X", which is a big improvement.

I completey agree that this is a basic function of a library catalog.

Leaving out the volume numbers in the serial-data is like providing a banking software that isn't able to add and substract...
Though - when I think about all the news about the financial-market in the last months, perhaps that comparison bears thinking about a bit more.
Maybe they just forgot to unlock the needed field for the display?

Agreed! Enumeration (and the ordered display of information) is vital to clear communication with our library patrons, not to mention staff work.

without a volume number displaying, a citation is that much harder to find. this is essential information for a library to function, both for patrons and employees.
