I agree with Lukas that some best practices for relevance ranking would be welcome. We have a lot of questions from librarians about how the relevance ranking works in our discovery layer. They are especially concerned with results based on full text vs. those based on metadata-only. Some indication of which fields are weighted etc. would be useful even if parts of the relevancy algorithm are proprietary.
