Suggestion: catalogue filters

By Curtin Library 6 June 2018 News & events Comments Off on Suggestion: catalogue filters

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Why does the library catalogue forget search filters every time you do a new search? e.g. Journal articles only, 10 years old, etc. It’s quite frustrating.

The Library responds…

After searching for an item in the Library catalogue, you have the option of filtering your results in the right hand column – this is where your active filters are displayed. When you hover the mouse over an active filter a padlock appears. If you click on the padlock the filter will remain for all searches in the current session. Multiple filters can be made persistent. The persistent filters are highlighted and the padlock displays.
