Sort by Author sorts by firstname rather than lastname
Updated by Matt Jones over 10 years ago
The current sort 'Author (a-z)' sorts on the origin field, which presents author names as 'First Last', and results in a non-intuitive sort. The 'origin' field is probably best for the display of the author list, but 'authorLastName' is probably better for sorting.

This is a limitation on the fields that are indexed. An updated cn-index-processor (v1.2.0) library will include a field that is appropriate for lastName sorting.
We can remove the author sort for now until support for this is available in our index (a new Metacat release).
