Display edition and publication year in brief results, for books and ebooks
I have been told by Ex Libris support that Summon only exposes the edition in the short summary for records that have a content type of 'Book'. This makes it difficult for patrons to determine which edition is the most recent, where both books and ebooks are available. See attached image for an example of how both can be displayed, to reduce confusion.
Edition, volume and publication year are now displayed in the brief result.

To me and my colleagues this seems like a vital enhancement. It seems illogical that e-books should prove less discoverable in a modern search environment. Particularly when the metadata displayed by a print book is reduced by virtue of it merging with an e-book. Many of our popular resources are textbooks with not particularly unique titles, where new editions are published regularly. The lack of displaying metadata for e-books is leaving our users unable to find the resources they know they need.
