      We are having an issue with LC Authority Names. When using the Lookup feature in 1.6, the results do not include dates.

      Example results looks like this:

      Wilkins, Abraham
      Lincoln, Abraham
      Lincoln, Abraham
      Lincoln, Abraham
      Lincoln, Abraham
      Lincoln, Bommala-Abraham

      The OCLC search results look like this and include dates. Can someone help to correct this or shed some light on the problem?

      Thanks,

      Ronee

      Ronee,

      Do you have the link? It did not come through.I am suspect that the SRUHandler is not parsing off the date and appending it in the choices. We may want to revisit what fields should be passed through and included in the choices.

      Yes, its just returning one field of the srw record, not sure if its a
      problem, just not a "feature". I'd recommend possibly a JIRA ticket on
      exploring if xslt can be used to provide users with simple template
      option to set what the results should be formated like when turned in
      Choices in the Handler.

      <mx:datafield ind1="1" ind2=" " tag="400">
      <mx:subfield code="a">Lincoln, Abraham,</mx:subfield>
      <mx:subfield code="d">ca. 1840-1922</mx:subfield>
      </mx:datafield>

      Mark,

      If anyone else is interested, I have modified the LCNameAuthority.java to also display/add dates (birth/death) to the lookup.
