Description

Showing all fonds for the entire database in the context menu/ treeview is confusing because at the top of the context menu the name of the Repository is restricted to the highlighted fonds.

One workaround would be to show the repository information in the pop-up for the fonds-level.

Or remove the show all option.

I would agree that this is confusing and would appreciate the option to either show all fonds in the treeview or not.

Another idea for the future- show the fonds level open in the treeview to show the child levels, and include other fonds in a separate treeview on the side bar. Even better if the other fonds are somehow related by subject term, keyword, etc.

Feedback from CVA:

Displaying nearby records at the fonds level when viewing a fonds/collection level record
This is distracting and confusing. The point of the tree view is to enhance users understanding of contextual relationships among descriptive records. However, there is usually no contextual relationship among fonds records, other than the fact that they were acquired by the same institution.
The presence of the tree view underneath the ‘Creator(s)’ list on the left sidebar can lead the user to infer that the other fonds being displayed in the tree view are associated with the same creator(s)
The titling text directly above the tree view is based on the level of description of the currently selected record. Consequently, it sometimes says “Collection” when a list of primarily fonds records fonds is being displayed, and “Fonds” when collection records occupy the list.
