 +    * Template customization is now supported that allows specific data fields to be pulled from the MARC and displayed in the OPAC. 
 +    * Examples would be: added author, alternate title, subject links, and URI data.  For an example, see the subject field of [[http://​laurentian.concat.ca/​opac/​en-CA/​skin/​lul/​xml/​rdetail.xml?​r=236483&​t=guns%20germs%20and%20steel&​tp=keyword&​l=105&​d=1&​hc=1&​rt=keyword|this record summary]] in Laurentian University’s catalog. ​ For more information on URIs, please see [[http://​www.loc.gov/​marc/​marbi/​2009/​2009-dp01-1.html|this page]].

 +    * Since there is no physical location, however, this does affect advanced searches wherein the shelving location limiter is used.

 +    * As of Evergreen 1.6, you can append an optional organization unit shortname for search scoping purposes, and you can also append /holdings if you want to expose the holdings for any returned records. So your zurl could be http://​dev.gapines.org/​opac/​extras/​sru/​BR1/​holdings to limit the search scope to BR1 and its children, and to expose its holdings.
