Why was this decided? (e.g. explain why this decision was reached. It may help to explain the way a procedure used to be handled pre-Alma) FRBR (Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records) provides a way to pull all records for a specific title/work to be grouped together. Search for “Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince” in DiscoverLibrary. The first record returned is a FRBRize record that indicates that there are multiple versions. If you select the record it shows two separate records, one for the DVD and one for the book. In this case the process works as expected. However, due to many of our collections the algorithm that Ex Libris uses does not work as well. Search for “scofield bible” in the catalog. The second record returned has 910 versions, but if you view the various “versions” you will see very different titles. Librarians felt this would turn off users of the catalog to our new search interface. If people can’t find what they need using Primo, they will seek out alternatives: WorldCat, Google Scholar, Google. We need people to embrace the catalog at roll out not turn away in anger.
