Retain search field keywords when switching to Browse Search
The following is a request from one of our teaching faculty. "When a subject heading search is performed in [the search scope for my institution's holdings] and the patron then wants to browse other variants of the subject heading and clicks on BROWSE in the top bar, the search box is blank. Then the patron has to retype (or if they are experienced and have copied the subject heading) paste it in and perform the search again. It seems like a simple fix to make the search term sticky so it would automatically populate the browse box."

Hi, in the example given, when the user clicks on a linked subject heading within a record, Primo executes a search for that subject heading. They are then browsing items associated with that heading. They would like to be able click on Browse and browse other variants or related subject headings.

I'm curious as to why they're bothering to go to Browse Search when they're already browsing? Why do they feel they have to perform the search again when they're in a results list by that term and can adjust the Advanced Search query or use the nested facets? Browse Search will actually limit their results, in only including local records when the lateral link shown in your screencast includes remote CDI records as well which match the term.
