(Aug 28/09) Ive noticed that the new library catalogue gives examples of what to type in the search bar. This isnt a bad idea, however, it has been set up poorly. If I type a search term into the bar and THEN choose title or author etc... it defaults back to the search example, so I have to retype my terms. Essentially, it forces you to choose your search category first and then type your terms. This is very counter-intuitive and frustrating. Could the system be changed so that once a term is typed the category can be changed without getting rid of the term?
Library response: Thanks for reporting this problem. We are in the process of correcting it so that your search term is retained without defaulting back to the search example. You should see this fix shortly. (Aug 28/09)
