Description Donna 2020-08-11 14:31:08 UTC
Using LC classification and Elasticsearch results in call numbers not being sorted correctly.  For example, a search for call number VA65, with results sorted by call number 0-9 gives you this:
VA65 E7
VA65 E45
VA65 E57
VA65 E471

but in Zebra gives you the correct sort:
VA65 E45
VA65 E471
VA65 E57
VA65 E7

This is a big problem for us impacting everything from new cataloging (can't shelflist accurately if one can't sort the call numbers accurately) to paging (sure slows paging down when the list isn't sorted correctly) to users doing virtual browsing of the shelves...

To see it live in our catalog with that VA65 call number range sorting the cutters as if they were whole numbers instead of decimals:

Thank you for anything anyone does to provide a fix!!!
