Instead of just title and author, it would be so helpful to have title, series name and number and author.

Available copies and number of patrons on hold list is probably asking too much, but would also be welcome. Also a listing of available formats.

Having any or all of the above 'at a glance' would definitely make browsing NextGen more enjoyable than it is now.
I agree with the above request, but would ask to make it device friendly by implementing some way that would work on any device, whether it's a computer or something else. Hovering, unfortunately, requires a mouse or touchpad, which not even Windows 8 relies on any more.

And, I still would ask to add the ability to switch between classic view and redesigned view, to see all formats in all browsers, independently from the device used to browse at that particular moment, and the ability to actually see the complete TITLE of a book and the author's complete name.

Sigh, or ask the iOS app developers to lend the web developers a hand: at least they seem to know what they are doing!
