MLibrary search

Just did a quick search for a textbook and noticed some things that could be improved on the results page.

As you can see, there are multiple copies of the same book listed. Turns out they’re at different libraries, but it should a) group them together or b) list the disambiguating library name in the results. Don’t make me open them all in new tabs to see what the difference is.

What the above shows is copy that says “Try ‘Browse'” but then I have to scan the entire page to see what or where “Browse” is. Why not just link to the browse page?

I’m submitting this as feedback to the MLibrary people; hopefully they will fix these problems.
