Better MelCat help in Summon

As part of my larger push to make it easier to move from our GVSU search tools to MeLCat, I added a little function to my custom Summon scripts that inserts a contextual help tip if you have the Book/eBook facet selected. (If you have more than one facet selected, it will show if the Book/eBook facet is the top one checked in the list. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ (Perhaps I’ll dig into the Angular framework enough to make a more sophisticated solution down the line.)

New contextual help in Summon

It might take a cache clear for this to show up. We’ll now keep an eye on MeLCat stats and see if it increases use!
