Hi all,
I’ve created a JIRA about this.  Please let me know if I’ve described it accurately and please feel free to edit if you have other aspects to add!

We’re having the same problem, and have not migrated to the PUI for this reason. I mentioned it a few weeks ago on the list, but when searching our PUI for “rockenbach papers”, the most relevant record (a collection called “Samuel D. Rockenbach Papers” which comes up first in the staff interface) doesn’t appear until page 13, with the first 12 pages being filled with this collection’s components (none of which contain both those search terms). Our sandbox is firewalled off, so I’ve attached screenshots of the results.

We upgraded to 2.1.1 about a week or two ago, and one of the issues our archivists noticed related to the new PUI is that collections show up very far down in the search results, relative to the staff interface. As an example, a keyword search for “peter dominick” in the staff interface returns the collection of his papers as the very first hit; at http://duarchives.coalliance.org, it doesn’t show up until page seven.

Is that something I can configure in the PUI settings in the config.rb file? For reference purposes it’s hard to have to scroll through multiple pages of results to land on the result for the collection. thanks!  -k
