Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)

An end user, Sally, is searching for a specific item for which she remembers a part of the title and the author. She uses the simple search in the side-navigation of the repository's home page and provides a part of the item's title as input. She gets shown a long list of different items which all contain the part of the title she remembered.

Instead of going through the long list of search results, she notices the "author" search facet in the repository's side navigation. She notices the item's author in the side navigation and clicks it. The search results now shows a shorter list of items which conform to Sally's original query and are of the author she selected from the facet.
