Hi Jamie!
I searched for Edna Ferber and got over 200 results. The books that she
wrote were displayed at the beginning, and there were many other references
too--some appropriate, and some not--like James Ferber.
Like you, I'm not finding this new search function that user friendly.
*smile* Guess there's a definite learning curve.
You're correct when you say it's impossible to know if a book is in the
collection without looking closely at every result. Am I missing something

I just put in the author's last name like I normally would in the search box
and I was surprised that I got so many hits and then dismayed that most of
them were not even close.
You use it just like you used to use the search box. That's why I tried the
advanced search and it still gives way too many results that aren't even
