Navigating the Site

Located at the top of each page you will find the Toolbar, which allows you to navigate through the site using the following buttons:

  • Home returns you to the Home page from anywhere in the database.
  • Browse takes you to the Browse All Works page. Submenu links on any Browse screen will take you to the other browse categories.
  • Search takes you to the Advanced Search screen.
  • Help opens the Table of Contents for the help file.

As you explore the database, a breadcrumb trail of links will appear below the main toolbar (For example, Search >> Results >> Table of Contents). You can use the links in this breadcrumb trail to return to previous steps in your searching or browsing.

Categories To the left of every screen, there is a Browse drop-down box that allows you to jump to any browse category in the database.
