The left form and center form are not separate. For example, I put a 
word into the title/keyword in the center, click on the center search 
and get 0 results, switch to the left form, put the word into the 
abstract box and click on the left search, I naively expected it to 
ignore the center form. The "grouping" of the forms with the shading and 
there being two Search buttons is what caused the expectation of separation.

When clicking on Search, the From and To date fields blank out temporarily.

If you fill in a From date, it *requires* a To date to also be picked, 
rather than using "today". Ditto with getting an error on filling in a 
To date with no From date and expecting it to use "the earliest date
