New re-exposed records and new UM portal interfaces

This is the last step in our MODS work at UM, unless data issues are discovered. Many things are waiting in the wings for after we re-engineer BibClass, e.g., thumbnails, date normalization, Zotero integration.

There is a new re-exposed metadata file available for harvesting: http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/b/broker20/broker20/?verb=ListRecords&metadataPrefix=mods&set=oaimods:aquifermodsR

The updated records in the portal contain these things:
- validation of MODS to BibClass, so elements and attributes are in all the correct places now
- tweaks to MODS display labels
- removal of the type normalization drop-down on the advanced search page, replacing it with the mods typeOfResource values
- change of default sort from title to weighted hit frequency
- addition of two new MODS sets: The Emancipator Newsletter from Tennessee and Southern Spaces from Emory

You can search and display all this here:

Also, we've updated the Google spreadsheet that reflects all these changes: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pkPh8eRIHnlDi17JkWsaJJQ
