Improved presentation of licence information

Description (last modified by Twan Goosen)

Licence and availability information are available through fields in the Solr index. This information could be presented more clearly and prominently to the end user. Some possibilities:

  • indicate the licence category (pub/aca/res + some) with an icon in the search results, based on the value in the licenseCategory field (see #814)
  • for some licences, an icon can also be shown (in particular CC licences but also for specific, common licences such as GPL), based in the information in the license field (see #813)
  • show the license and other access information with the resources in the record page based on the license and accessInfo fields
    • the VLO does not (yet) map licence information to individual resources so don't assume that one licence applies to all resources
    • add boosting by licence category for the default result ranking (fewer restrictions = better)
