Updated NLM Catalog Sidebar Filters

[Editor's note: This change was implemented in the NLM Catalog on March 8, 2017.]

The NLM Catalog left sidebar facets will be updated soon to improve users’ ability to combine filters when searching. For example, "Journals referenced in the NCBI DBs" (databases) will appear as its own category so that it can be combined easily with any other filter (see Figure 1).

Users will be able to customize the sidebar to display additional facets, including "PubMed/PMC journals" and "All MEDLINE journals" (see Figure 2).
