'''Talk Title:'''

'''Speaker name, affiliation, and email address:'''
Even though we’d like love to get basic searches working so well that advanced search wouldn’t be necessary, there will always be a small set of users that want it, and there will always be some library searching needs that basic searching can’t serve. Our user interface designer was dissatisfied with many aspects of advanced search as currently available in most library discovery software; the form she designed was is excellent but challenging to implement. See
We’ll share details of how we implemented Advanced Search in Blacklight:
# thoughtfully Non-techie designed html form for the user (NOT done by techies!)
# boolean syntax while using Solr dismax magic (dismax does not speak Boolean)
# checkbox facets (multiple facet value selection)
