Discovery allows for faceted searching and browsing.
From the user perspective, faceted search breaks up search results into multiple categories, typically showing counts for each, and allows the user to "narrow down" or further restrict their search results based on those facets.
In a faceted search, a user can modify the list of displayed search results by specifying additional "filters" that will be applied on the list of search results. Each time a user selects a sidebar facet it will be added as a filter. Active filters can be altered or removed in the 'filters' section of the search interface.
As shown here a simple search is done for the term “Geology.” On the right you can see the Discover filters.
In this example the Subject facet, the “Geology” filter is selected. This narrows the results list from 151 to 130 records.
Within this facet, the user can further narrow the results by filtering with the other Discover facets, such as Date Issued. In this example , 1990-1999 is selected and the results are now narrowed down to 19 records.
