I am trying to do a search on the term "social justice" in my resources (yeah, I know). I have pages of results due to my high number of resources, and older resources certainly use the phrase differently than it is used in the last decade. 

Is there a way to filter the results so that I only get resources that were created (not added by me, but publication date) since a specific date, or between dates? Thanks.

Set a resource filter on the search, something like: pubDate:>2000

Thank you! I'm going to need a bigger boat, however. Is there a source for all the search filters?

I wasn't aware of this thread until Myke mentioned it here: https://faithlife.com/posts/2078238, but you should be aware that there's a discrepancy when using this filter in the "quick collections" way versus filtering the library. In my case, I get 2788 resources from the quick filter box and 4582 in the library. I imagine it's a bug, but haven't tried to track things down more specifically.

I get the same in both cases.

Do you have some resources not downloaded? If so, I wonder if that is causing the difference (I have all mine downloaded)

FWIW, the collections tool gives me the 2788 count... I could understand a discrepancy of 3 due to the following resources, but I don't understand a discrepancy of nearly 1800!

Good thought Graham! When I filter the library then select all, I get very nearly the same number available for download (1792 IIRC).

If you have "cloud" resources, a Collection or "quick collection" will only work with resources that are on your device. If you filter Library by This device (in the sidebar) and then apply a "collection" rule, you will get the same number.

In general, features other than Library will only show (and work with) resources that are on your device.
