Author sort by last name

Filed under: Uncategorized — gurulib @ 7:51 am

Finally we implemented the author sort by last name. The main issue was the source from which I pull the catalog information do not have the name in last name, first name order. It is just one single string with the author’s name. Currently we use a simplified algorithm to identify the last name. If a name appears at the last and is greater than 2 characters then it is a last name. We hope that will for most of the cases. Thank you Kyrasama and htam for suggesting this feature.

  1. I’m quite new to Gurulib, and was under the impression that it is impossible to sort by last name…a considerable limitation. According to this post, it is possible. How does one sort by last name?
