Search Groupings & Results Views

New Search Grouping Options are available in Illume (SHAREit V6) to allow for Clustered, Merged, & No Grouping search result views. These can be used in combination with the Gallery & List Results Views to customise your Staff & Patron search results.

View Different Options in Clustered, Merged, No Grouping and Gallery/List

Staff and/or Patron can select from Clustered (matches on just Author & Title), Merged (matches on Author, Title, Publisher & Date) & No Grouping (no matching or merging records) search result views to start. And these can also be used in combination with the Gallery & List Results Views to customise your Staff & Patron search results.

Initial and Brief Holdings Displays

August 4th 2020: The software was recently updated to show the Holdings (if available) information on all Brief display pages again to allow Staff and/or Patrons to quickly see which record has the most holdings attached. For example, in the screenshot below the number of Holdings/Libraries attached to the Book "Half broke horses : a true-life novel" displays as (73) on the Initial merged or clustered records results page. And on the subsequent non-merged Brief display page for each record with (58) or (15) holdings (previously did not display).

This allows Staff to easily use the "Cluster" or "Merge" views rather than having to use the "No Grouping" and "List" option to always see all available holdings information!
