return to search results on detail page

The fact that you have to use the browser back button to return to search results from the detail page in the OPAC goes against most usability rules. Can we add a link to return to search results?

I like the idea, but I'm not sure how to accomplish it. How do we pass the last search to the detail page? A URL parameter? A session variable of some kind? Do you try to remember the last search through other steps like moving from the detail page to the MARC view?

Offering a link to the user which calls history.back() seems to mask the problem that we're not leveraging any built-in method for tracking a user's last search task. What happens if I click from the normal view to the MARC view, and then I want to go back to the search results? I can click the "return to search" link, but it will end up sending me to the detail page.
But hey, we have an OPAC search history feature now--how can we make that work to fix this bug?
Now we just need someone to tap into that search history to put the 'back to results' link on the bib record - because that's where patrons are looking for it :) not in 'search history'
