Ron Holl and I have been modifying old and adding new features to the section on the Home page formerly labeled "Finding Specific Titles or Authors."

• The search results page now lists the range of dates that each title was in the series. 
• Searching an author's name now shows all titles by that author if the author had more than one title. (You used to go directly to the author's page.)
• You can now search for the entire catalog available in any year 1917 - 1975. (Years 1971 through 1974 are likely not that accurate because of a lack of reliable source data.) What books did the ML consider a reflection of public taste in the year YOU were born?

And finally, to reflect these changes & additions, the heading on that section is now changed to "Finding Specific Catalogs, Titles, or Authors." (I'm not wedded to this heading -- send along suggestions for better ones.)

Please let me know if you find any errors.
