Thank you for the direction.  Now, of course, the follow up questions:

1. I added one extra filter, specifically, I added  <ref 
bean="searchFilterType" /> to the <list> set.  I recycled Tomcat, but then 
got an error regarding a missing bean.  I am now guessing that I need to 
rebuild DSpace in order for the new bean to get added to the package?
2. A related question, where can I find the full list of available search 
filters?  In the sample you pointed me to there are the following:
                <ref bean="searchFilterTitle" />
                <ref bean="searchFilterAdvisor" />
                <ref bean="searchFilterAuthor" />
                <ref bean="searchFilterSubject" />
                <ref bean="searchFilterIssued" />
                <ref bean="searchFilterType" />
                <ref bean="searchFilterProvenance" />
Is that the exhaustive list or are there more.  If more, where can I find 
the full list?

Thank you for your previous help and I look forward hopefully to answers to 
these two follow on questions.
