New Catalog needs location sort capability

It would be nice to have a sort feature in the new library catalog. For example, when searching land records for Carleton County, Ontario in the old catalog, there were 282 films. It was easy to find the film number for a record for a particular township, because the records were sorted by location and then by volume or year. The new catalog sorts the records by film number, meaning that one would have to search the entire 282 films listed to pick up all the films for a particular township. If it is not viable to be able to allow users to change the sort, could you at least go back to the way it was sorted before (by location, which is now called note)? After all, it is the location where the event occurred that people know and they use that to find the film number.
