Refine (filter) your search

You can filter (limit) your search results to see only those items associated with particular fields or values. After you perform a keyword search, you can filter or narrow down your search.

The diagram below explains the features of the Refine Search panel.

Step 1: Scroll down to the Refine Search panel to see all the information.

For each field, the five items (facets) with the most search results are shown. The number beside each item shows the number of times the item occurs in the search results. (The total number of documents in the filtered search results is shown at the top of the Content area.)

If there are more than five items for a field, you will see a Show More link you can click to see them all. (Then click Show Less to hide them again.)

Step 2. Click the arrows beside each field to hide or show its entries.
