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 a "Series" field which is not currently searched by Quick Search title searches.  For example when performing a title search on "speech pathology" you will see Stress, burn-out and professional development by McGill University, Montreal, Canada 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 Series field.  We are working with the vendor on a solution for this issue.  In the meantime try doing a keyword search if you experience any difficulty relating to this problem.  (9/3/2010)
