The naming of the results sections of Everything search has been changed with L8.3 - possibly the current wording is confusing to users. I'll quote a part of another thread

NB.Mick:
or is the issue with the section of the results of the search: "Your Books" is where results from my PBs come up. "Local results" (I think it used to be called "library results" in L7) is a subset of results from the library and a link to execute the search on all resources. 

I don't think I like the change in nomenclature. Tongue Tied

Me neither, but some change is probably needed to differentiate when the option to have parts of the library on your machine and parts of it in the cloud goes live. I'd prefer "library results - local" and "library results - cloud" in order to make it clear to the users (and to change "your books" into "your personal books" - I suspect most users don't use PBs and may confuse it with library results. Still unclear whether this happened here, too.

Agreed. If you hadn’t explained that, I wouldn’t have recognized that distinction.

The section headings should be understood by most users, not limited to developers and power users that would know of such nuances.

Mick's suggestion of "library results - local" and "library results - cloud" is a good one. The current choice is unacceptable.

I'd lean towards "local library results", "cloud library results", and "personal books" if they are to be renamed.

Bumping this up for @Philana - in the original thread the user confirmed that he thought there were zero results because he confused the "your books" results section with the "local results" section. Please consider clarifying the description along the ideas posted here in the thread.

I will pass this feedback to the team that makes UI decisions.

Thanks for the input. I absolutely agree we should make the meaning transparent to new users.
