Thanks Mark.  I'll fool with it some more and also keep my eyes out for new links for updates and other tests.

Dear Jesse,

With the current public interface, I believe that this would be something that you'd need to modify on your end.

With the new public interface, which is scheduled for release next year (with a candidate release this December), the search results are going to include more information.  The results will include dates, for instance, when those are present.  Here's a wireframe mockup:

(but don't look too deeply at that mockup, since it has some bad data there too - a subject isn't going to show up in the search results like that with a date span, for instance :))

So, I know that this doesn't help out right now, but it is being worked on.

In the next couple of weeks, I'll also share a link to our test corpus with everyone so that you can follow along with the new public interface as it develops over the last couple of months.

All my best,

We are testing migrating ARCHON records to AS.  After clicking on COLLECTIONS in the public site, we see the alphabetical list of collections, but the dates did not come over with them.  One of the aspects of our holdings is that some collections have the same title, just different years.  But the public would not know which is which unless he/she clicks on all of them until the right year is found.

Is there a way to have the public view contain both title and year(s) of collections?  Or is this something that needs to be personally modified to our liking on our end?
