Ability To Limit Search To One Library

(I didn't see this feature request.  Possibly it exists and is worded differently.)

Whenever I do a search I get results from all libraries.

I would like the option to limit a search to a specified library: 

Example 1: if I search for "Star Wars" I will get results from all libraries: movies from my "movie library", the film score from my "music library" and an interview with John Williams and Harrison Ford from my "interviews library". 

Since I know I am looking for the film score it seems one should be able to search the "music library" so that one doesn't get a dozen irrelevant results. 

I feel this is an important feature, particularly when one has a very large library with different types of media.  

Example 2: I have an older iTunes library of media from earlier years that is mp3 or low resolution type formats.  I also have a more recent library that only has higher resolution audio, such as FLAC.   If I want to find the high resolution FLAC version of Fleetwood Mac "Dreams", for example, searching for it will result in finding both the older mp3 version and a higher resolution FLAC version.  I will then have to look into the specs for each to find the version I am looking for.  If there was an ability to search by library this would facilitate finding exactly what one wants faster.

Thank you for looking into this.
