          Just a restating of the problem from our point of view (copied from our previous NERS request):

          FRBR grouping is based on title and author, and the "preferred record" chosen to display by default in search results is determined based on "relevance".

          This works poorly for textbooks, where users almost invariably want the latest edition. Instead they're often presented with an old edition for opaque reasons (perhaps an algorithm notes that one of their search terms occurs 6 times in the 3rd edition's abstract and only 5 times in the 9th edition's abstract). Users assume this is the most recent version we have and don't look any further.

          Conversely we imagine that in some settings, the oldest version would be the most canonical - Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland would be the appropriate one to display, and not the omnibus, sequel, audiobook, or movie.

          So it would be great if the option could be provided for libraries to choose either:
          1) relevance ranking only (status quo)
          2) prefer newer editions
          3) prefer older editions

            This would also help with a use case we have: We're harvesting from a small OAI feed that can't supply 'delete' data, so we have to run regular delete-and-reload pipes. Obviously for this case we have to set the date back to before the repository began every time we run it.

                                          Would the built-in browser functionality work for you? For example in Firefox I can type Ctrl-+ (that is, the ctrl key and the + key) and it will zoom in on any webpage. This enlarges images too so it's not exactly the same as just enlarging font, but for my purposes it's good enough.
