[Archivesspace_Users_Group] API queries for library discovery interface question

It looks like your example got a little mangled along the way: I assume what’s between the “<…>” doesn’t belong. 
But the ‘-H’ switch sends “q:java” as a HTTP header, not as a search param, so with a null query string, you are asking for everything.  

Try maybe: "http://as.lib.msu.edu:8089/search?page=1&page_size=5&q=java <http://as.lib.msu.edu:8089/search?page=1&page_size=5&q=java>”

or if you want to send it as a POST instead of a GET request, use  -F or —form switch. 

Also, when debugging search problems, it’s sometimes handy to go directly to the Solr console at port 8090, if you’re using the default Solr settings in ArchivesSpace.

The mystery is that apparently, our API call seems to bring back bogus results whereas if we scrape from the HTML of the PUI, the search results are as expected.
