The cap is 10 records, not 100.

For me, I can pull up a title and usually just by eyeballing guess that there is at least 4 or 5 records that will match from the initial screen. I'd like to be able to click a check box and load them into a record bucket rather than open each to get to the "actions for this record." 

Ah, this is where I was heading with the Record Query experiment 
buried in the Record Bucket interface, except using a list with 
columns like most of the staff client interfaces, instead of the 
embedded OPAC. It's not complete, and currently has a hard-coded cap 
on the number of results (I believe 100), and it only has a single 
search box, though it re-uses the same advanced search syntax as the 
OPAC (harry -potter subject:fiction etc.). I didn't want to 
re-implement the whole OPAC, so my intention was to add a MARC View 
button to the list and leave it at that. 

But you can copy selected titles from multiple search results into a 
staging area, and then from the staging area into selected buckets. 

If that's a good direction to continue heading, I'd love for someone 
to champion it. But staff and patrons alike would benefit from things 
like checkboxes in the main OPAC.
