I like that the Library will return a search grouped by author, publisher, etc. Where this could be made even more useful for the author results is if a multi-volume work could display not only that author's name (as it now does, underneath the resource name), but also which volume it is that has the author's work.

In the example above I searched my library for "Wright," and see in the results the Tyndale Commentary, with his name listed underneath, showing he has a volume there. But there's not a way to find out easily from this view what book it is he's authored, so I can quickly get there (it's Colossians and Philemon).

 

I realize this probably relates to the difficulty in finding/citing authors of multi-volume works and commentaries in Accordance, so maybe this request is not so simple.
