Conducting a search in the catalog can produce an overwhelming amount of results. The good news is that these results can be narrowed by selecting facets. Facets are located on the left side of the screen and allow the user to narrow by areas such as format, location and publication date. These are just three of the many facets you can select. A user can narrow by one or more facets at the same time. I ran a search on adoption which returned 228 results. I decided to narrow my results by electronic format and records that had my search term in the subject. I now have 14 results, which is much more manageable. Next time you conduct a search in the catalog use facets to find more pertinent results.
