Perhaps you all can put your heads together and can
think of something else to put as an underneath label
for the new Search space. It apparently does not
search the website, since it doesn't include the Books
in Process list (Does it include the New Books List?)
but only the collection. However, it does provide more
information about the books in the collection (except
the Books by Author section doesn't have the same
number of books by at least one author that I checked
as does the Simple Search for that author).

How about Provides information about books in the
collection? Or Provides info if information makes it
too long. You have Search Bookshare.org a a label on
top of the space; that's not particularly
misleading--it's the bottom label that is. Maybe you
guys can come up with something else.
