Faceted searching now available

From wwwopac.ashx version 3.6.13106.1, faceted searching has been implemented in the Adlib API through the facets command. Faceted searching is a way to narrow down a search result by using one of the keywords in the search result to perform a more specific search than the previous one.
For example, if a museum website visitor searches on the name of a painter, she might also find drawings and etchings by this painter and early work as well as his later work. You could offer lists of object categories and production periods alongside the search result to allow the user to narrow down the search result quickly.
