1) Navigate to an institution
2) Set the radio button in the search bar to search only within that institition's holdings
3) search for a collection/fonds held by that repository
The archival institution facet filter is closed by default. The user is given an indication that a filter is applied by the orange tag at the top of the search results, however
The filter tag at the top of the results is useful, and should be kept. But default behaviour should be that any facet that is applied is open when the page loads.
Ideally, any facet with more options than "All" should be open by default, so the users see the filter options immediately.

This fix works well - the institution facet is open now when it's applied.
One small thing if it's not too much work: I also think that the little orange filter tag that used to appear at the top of the search results was a really useful way to indicate to a user that they have arrived at a filtered query was useful - users are more likely to see that than the facet filter when arriving (even though I'm glad we've made the facet default to open when applied).
We're still doing this for a filter by description - see attached screenshot. Is it possible for the user to get the facet open/applied, but also get back the tag that indicates a filter is on, for institutions? (see the "Expected results" in the issue description). If not, or if it's too much work this close to launch, don't worry (not critical), but i do think it's more user-friendly.
