If you go here: <a href="https://rucore.libraries.rutgers.edu/search/index.php?key=FACULTY&amp;browse" title="https://rucore.libraries.rutgers.edu/search/index.php?key=FACULTY&amp;browse">https://rucore.libraries.rutgers.edu/search/index.php?key=FACULTY&amp;browse</a> and scroll down to 'SEBS - Marine & Coastal Sciences, it appears as 'SEBS - Marine &amp; Coastal Sciences Collection'.

It's odd that this is happening because other & characters display fine.

There also appears to be an issue ' if you scroll down to 'School of Law - Newark, Dean&#039;s Office Collection'

It's effecting 5 collection names right now.

Looks like some double conversion is happening on the Search API end. In the example stated the following is returned from the search API form method.

"SEBS - Marine &amp;amp;amp; Coastal Sciences Collection"

Status:active» fixed

The fix is to edit the collection ma stored in the dlr.collections database. It was double encoded in the database, causing the issue.
