Give book extract citation type its own title field
We like the concept of the book extract citation type, but would like it to operate more like a book chapter type rather than an article.
We would like to give them titles like "Questions from Chapter 14", or use section headings that may be on the page of the book. If there was nothing obvious to use in the book, then we could make up a description of the extract [Extract from ch. 4].
For students this would give them a clearer idea of what they are supposed to read rather than just seeing the whole book title.
For library team working in Alma it would help them differentiate and give them a title to use in the representation label to assist managing digital fulfillment
Hi, we do agree. I believe this applies to Reference Entry as well. The need for its own title field. I know Barak is already working on that, so maybe it's possible to develop this for book extract as well in the same process?

Yes, for students seeing the whole book title could be offputting ("I'm supposed to read the whole book??") or confusing if the class uses multiple extracts from the same book.
