Books that have popular alternative titles (i.e. 'Civil Procedure' = 'The White Book') should be searchable under those titles
Books that have popular alternative titles (i.e. 'Civil Procedure' = 'The White Book' in most law libraries) should be searchable under those titles. At the very least Summon should prioritise the 246 alternate title field more than it currently does.

This would be useful for music, too. For example, "Rite of Spring" vs. "Sacre du Printemps." This work has no text so the language of the title is not important to someone searching for a score or recording.

Here at City, University of London, we are very eager for this idea to be adopted.
We would like ExLibris to be able to add alternative titles to their master records, or be able to utilise the existing alternative titles within provider or catalogue records, so that resources are more easily discovered.
Authoritative title (on Summon): Financial remedies Handbook
