Display parallel titles in Summon
The correction in Summon to index parallel titles as titles (instead of as subtitles) was welcomed; however, the resulting elimination of parallel titles in search results displays was not. In the current iteration of Summon, which parallel title appears in the catalog is solely left to chance, and whichever appears first in a bibliographic record. However, if Summon can display all other title subfields and information in search results, including subfields B, N and P, it should include parallel title information as well. The lack of parallel titles is problematic for patron search and retrieval. For example, a patron searching for “Pasqualino settebellezze” in our local catalog might think our DVD is the only available copy, since the title they searched for is not visible in our streaming video information. Summon should still display the parallel titles in search results; preferably exactly as Primo does, with an equals sign between the two parallel titles. Information encoded into bibliographic records is meant to assist patrons with search and retrieval of items, and therefore should be fully visible in search results in our catalogs.
