currently I can configure the block to sort by date created and by year. But if I have many publications in the same year, they show up in some random order.

Two things could be done here:

- sort the block by the same algorithm as the main biblio list, when using "Year". For some reason in the main biblio list the full date is taken into account; or
- add the option to sort the block by "date" rather than "year".

This would be fixed by #682044: Support fields (CCK) in D7 Bibliography Module, but not sure if rjerome wants to defer this tactical request to a strategic project.

Could you explain how this would be fixed by CCK?

Implement the Date module, and then present through Views using the Date field as the primary sort and the field that thiagobart wants for the secondary sort.

You don't need CCK to do this, Views can do it all on it's own.

If you use the Date module (a custom CCK field), you'd have excellent granularity control on the Views sort handler already built in. Otherwise you'll have to reinvent the wheel.

Could you possibly allow a second sort as an easy quick fix for cleaning up the list a little? (i.e. primary by year and secondary by primary author's last name?) This would make it easier to find things in long lists of publications.
