Navigating the Grid Resources page is quite cumbersome if there are a lot of entries consisting of multiple pages. Searching for an entry typically involves choosing a page at random and observing the top named resource (for alphabetical ordering), scrolling down to the bottom of the page to see if the desired entry is there, and continuing to search page-by-page alphabetically until the entry is located. This can become even more tedious if there are a large number of alphabetically similar entries, requiring a closer look down the entirety of many pages.

Adding search/filter functionality to the Grid Resources page would solve this particular issue. If there were a text box, for example, a user could type text for a desired entry, which would then filter out and exclude any rows of resources that don't match any of the text being searched. This would leave only rows of resources that match what the user typed into the search/filter text box, still complete with all data for all columns (Name, Description, Providers, #Available, #Used, Access Info). Ideally, the user would still be able to edit or copy each resource individually, as they do now with an unfiltered list. Additionally, a "clear" button to remove the search results/filter would be nice (for multiple searches), and it would reset back to showing all resources when navigating away from the page.

A simple view of how crowded it gets with a large number of resources and pages, with 25 entries per page

Nice to have: An advanced search to search through the description or providers.
