Advanced Search Re: Query - Archnet redesign

Thank you for your comments on the new Archnet. Constructive comments are helpful.  We listen and take them seriously.  In fact this thread was started within a day (if not the very day) of our rolling out the advanced search and other new features that were a response to the real problems users told us they were having with the site.  The advanced search allows users to replicate the lists in the old interface that classified records by building type, materials, location, and other criteria.  Not only can they be replicated, but now they can be made to order, with criteria combined in any manner you choose to conduct more complex inquiries.
