complexity of index
I take it that seach relies on the indexing of records. Could one specify the level od depth for this: say tick the fields one wants indexed or specify no indexing beyond so many characters. I'd be happy to use advanced search to find things in abstracts but would prefer to limit the search filtering to author and title. My guess is that this could also improve speed quite substantially and allow users to tweak as a tradeoff between searching and number of records.
