Hi Angela,

the series numbering is currently not taken into account when you order
by title, but just 245$a.

In general, when your search criteria matches all records 'the same',
the second sort criteria is the biblionumber, so they will sort in order
of cataloguing. Sometimes that can work well, but not all times.

Sorting by Title does not include volume/part information from $p and $n

Hope this helps explain,
