Bug Fix: Facet support for IE11

OCLC resolved the issue with facets not working correctly with IE11.

FRBR update

OCLC has run a re-FRBRization of WorldCat. One of the primary updates from this process is that many of the singleton records in WorldCat will be assigned to work clusters.  You should also see improvements to other FRBR-type issues you may have seen or reported to OCLC.  Following the completion of the FRBR run, please bring problem clusters directly  to OCLC’s attention by reporting them to OCLC Customer Support:

OCLC anticipates that this will be a significant improvement to FRBR WorldCat records.

Enhanced Feature: Data from 520 subfield b added

OCLC has added subfield b to MARC 520 field in summary and abstract.
