How can we improve Talis Aspire Reading Lists?

Include "Editor" in the front screen list view

At the moment, there is no distinction between editors and authors when you bookmark an item - both are labelled as "Author" in the initial metadata. If you edit the metadata to describe an editor as "Editor", that information no longer appears in the front screen list view. We would ideally like the bookmark button to be able to distinguish between the two when bookmarking (as MARC does with the 100/700 field distinction) and we would like Editors to appear in the front screen list view to improve the information available to students in support of good citation practices.

        Some items are known by/ identified by their editors (e.g. "European Union law" edited by Catherine Barnard and Steve Peers: http://findit.bham.ac.uk/primo_library/libweb/action/dlDisplay.do?vid=44BIR_VU1&search_scope=default_scope&docId=44BIR_ALEPH_DS003288095&fn=permalink) Not having the editor visible on the homepage makes it much harder to know what is being referred to. Please could this be looked at?

        It would also be useful to have Translator identified on the list view screen in addition to Editor. On some reading lists (especially for Literature courses) academics list several alternative translations of a work and use the translators' names to distinguish between them - e.g.:

        The Divine Comedy - Dante Alighieri, trans. Robin Kirkpatrick 2012
        The Divine Comedy - Dante Alighieri, ed. & trans. Robert M. Durling, notes by Ronald L. Martinez 1996

        We do look for a distinction when bookmarking based on how the field is identified on the site it is being bookmarked from and then if we find a record in your catalogue, we identify them accordingly using the relator term or code found in teh 100/700 field.

        Could you please provide an example where this isn't working including the source site please as we may need to raise a support ticket for this.

        Editors are not displayed on the list view screen
