Currently in the staff interface, only the accession title is visible. It makes accessing the correct accession record difficult from the resource record for collections with multiple similarly named accessions. It would be very helpful to have the accession identifier present in the resource record view.
In resource display mode, related accession titles are listed alongside accession identifier (this is extremely useful). In edit mode, only the accession title is displayed. Would it be possible to add the identifier to the display of accessions in edit mode?
Blake's comment above is from a ticket I filed with Lyrasis. To expand on that, the accession identifier is a critical piece of information for distinguishing between accessions. For collections with frequent additions, we might have a dozen accessions all with the same title, so having a way to determine which accession is which saves quite a bit of headache and clicking. Since we are often in edit mode, having the information available there would be very helpful.
- as discussed, this refers to prepending the 4-part accession identifier to the display string in the blue linker box.
Completed test of this in the hosted Test version of AS. Works as it should. The identifier is displayed with the Title of the accession in both display and edit mode.
