Short answer: technically yes, the list views can be changed, but since
they're centrally hosted and maintained at MIT for all Citeline users,
we won't change them since that could cause problems for other users.
However if you wanted to do some lightweight programming, you could
create a new template that does exactly what you want then give it to us
to add to Citeline (or run Citeline yourself).

Background: a Citeline list view is determined by a special "template"
HTML file that we store in the Citeline code repository. The template
specifies which bibtext fields will display in what order, etc. These
HTML files have special instructions for Exhibit (part of Citeline) so
creating and editing them requires knowing how Exhibit works. The
template for the "classic" style is publically available in the code
repository here
and basic doc on them is here

In the distant future we'd like to make a feature that lets users design
their own templates interactively, without knowing Exhibit instructions,
but that's not an option today...
