How can we improve Summon?

Improve holdings display for journals in Summon or turn off catalog details page based on material types

We're looking for ways to improve the way holdings display for journals in Summon.

We're screen scraping Real Time Availability for our books, but our journals just display "Check availability" and link through to the OPAC (because the records have a different structure).

We would like to turn on the catalog details page, but this adds an additional click for users before they can actually see our journal holdings.

For example, here is a journal record in our OPAC (we have print and electronic on the same record):
http://librarycatalogue.griffith.edu.au/record=b1551062~S1

and in Summon preview

http://griffith.preview.summon.serialssolutions.com/#!/search/document?ho=t&l=en-AU&q=landscape%20architecture%20australia&id=FETCHMERGED-griffith_catalog_b155106213

Whereas the ebook displays a bit better

http://griffith.preview.summon.serialssolutions.com/#!/search/document?ho=t&l=en-AU&q=The%20SAGE%20handbook%20of%20criminological%20theory&id=FETCHMERGED-griffith_catalog_b168904012

If we could turn off the catalog details page for journal records only, that would solve the problem.

Alternatively, if we could get RTA for electronic holdings for journals from Intota/EJP/360 Link this would improve the Summon display.
