Allow Accelerated Reader searching by range

6

It would be nice to be able to do a search by Accelerated Reader ranges (Accelerated Reader shows up in MARC 526a, the range in 526c). An example search would be for Accelerated Reader 2.4 through 3.2 for dinosaurs. The library that brought this up to me said this was a feature of the Follett system used in the Newton School Catalog. From the screenshot I saw, the feature is in Follett Destiny.

We'd like to be able to add Lexile as well, which looks like this:

521 8_ $a 600 $b Lexile

We'd want this on Advanced Search with the ability to enter a range have the system work out the math.  (In other words, I want to be able to enter Between 500 and 700 and find a record that has 600.)

We should actually look at all the 521's, which include reading level, interest level, etc.
