  2. For each facet that you want to include and exclude, hover over the facet in the Tweak my results section of the UI and then perform one of the following actions:
    • Include facet – Select the check box on the left side of the facet. If you want to include a facet that has already been marked for exclusion, click the IncludeFacetIcon.png button on the right side of the facet.
    • Exclude facet – If you have already included a facet, click the ExcludeFacetIcon.png button on the right side of the facet to mark it for exclusion. If you have not already marked a facet for exclusion or inclusion, you must first select the facet's check box and the click the ExcludeFacetIcon.png button on the right side of the facet. Otherwise, a single facet will be excluded immediately.
  3. Click Apply Filters to filter your results. The selected facets will appear in the Active filters section.

Multiple Facets 

You can include/exclude multiple facets at a time to filter your search results.

Note:
With multiple facet selection, users can select values from multiple facets, but the system treats the values from other facets differently. For example, if the user selects Subject facet values Agriculture and Botany and Resource Type facet values Book and Other, the system returns results that include all records that match the following criteria:
  • The records must contain either Agriculture or Botany subjects.
  • And the records must be either Book or Other resource types.
When facets are added one at a time, the system returns the remaining results that match the selected facet value.
