    With currently more than 35,000 separate items in Canvas Commons, it should be very near time to create "advanced searches" that allow additional filters to narrow a search down. For example, I enter the name of my institution, "University of St Francis" in the search field and I get about 7,000 hits.  Even narrowing down the search parameters to "module" (for the item in which I am interested) gives me hundreds of hits, and I cannot seem to enter additional filters. An advanced search mechanism that would allow the addition of search terms would certainly help reduce the amount of time it now takes to find something.
