In the following example we click "Browse by year" and choose "2014" (see screenshot).
A list of records starting from 2014 appears but no indication is given that you just made that selection aside from deducing it from metadata appearing in the results.
A more user friendly approach would be to supply the selected "starts_with" as part of the results information:
Now showing items 6487-6506 of 13588
would turn into
Now showing items 6487-6506 of 13588 starting with 2014
or, alternatively, if searching first letters of a name
Now showing items 1-20 of 236 starting with Mac
Now showing items 1-20 of 236
