Warning: combining the new acquisitions filter with an expert search can produce unexpected results, as the query and filter are called up separately and not combined. The best way to obtain the list of new acquisitions is to use the new_acquisition filter in combination with the library or location filter. Example: /global/search/documents?new_acquisition=now-3M/d&organisation=1&library=2
