Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed error with right click in Collections tab.  Right click now selects the new row clicked on.
  • Collections tab now refreshes properly after record has been edited.
  • Fixed error with Local Catalog url defaulting to Title only instead of checking for ISBN when z39.50 is not present
  • Cleaned up Local Catalog url so that only title will be searched.
