Filtering Search Results
Please note: some pages will not load until after the "Clear All Filters" link is clicked on.
If you wish to filter the results, click on the "Filter" tab at the top of the page. To add a filter, click the radio button to the left of the filter type you wish to apply, then select the filter criteria from the drop down list on the right, then click the filter button.
It is possible to create complex filters by returning to the "Filter" tab and adding additional filters. Simply follow the steps outlined above and press the "Refine" button. All filters can be removed by clicking the "Clear All Filters" link at the top of the result page, or on the "Filter" tab they can be removed one at a time using the "Undo" button, or you can remove them all using the "Clear All" button.You may also construct URLs which filter. For example, /library/year/2005 will show all of the entries for 2005 and /library/year/2005/author/ratzka will show all of entries from 2005 for Ratzka.
