User tip: Limiting MNPALS Searches by Language and other

Use the "Advanced Search" to easily limit searches by language.  One can also limit by format (e.g., DVD), but this can be too restrictive since we have so much in VHS as well as DVD.  Instead, try limiting by collection--choose Audio Visual.
