More new features
We're in the midst of experimenting with a new DBMS in preparation for migrating this functionality to a new server. As part of this process, you should see a "Quick-Finder" box at the top of the left-hand column on every page. You can use the new feature to find books by author, title, publisher, series, or year of publication in three simple steps. First, use the pop-up menu to choose what kind of search you want to perform. Second, type in the first few characters for your search. Third, click on the "Find" button. We think you'll find this an extremely handy way to locate information about the books in our database. Remember, however, the system is still experimental, so please forgive us if the results at the moment are not always as perfect as we would all prefer.
