Why am I finding items in JMU Library Catalog but not in Quick Search when performing a Title search?

JMU Library Catalog records sometimes include an "Other Title" field which is not currently searched by Quick Search.  For example when performing a title search on "speech pathology" you will see How to Prepare for the NESPA by Kay T. Payne in your JMU Library Catalog search results.  You will not see this item in Quick Search however as the "speech pathology" search terms appear only in the Other Titles field.  We are working on a long term solution for this issue and hope to have this resolved by later this fall.  In the meantime try doing a keyword search if you experience any difficulty relating to this problem.  (9/3/2010)
