The Site Map provides an overview of the entire
site, including links to individual documents and contributions. The Gallery
of Galleries provides a non-linear way to experience the site. Still
another way to explore the offerings here is to take advantage of the
multiple links on each page connecting it with other parts of the site:
Click on bold text
Most, but not all, text that is in bold, is a link to somewhere
on the site or to the web. You can tell which is which by passing
your mouse pointer over the text and seeing the color change.
For instance, Click on bold text is not a link,
but Site Map and Gallery
of Galleries are. A click will take you there, and in most
cases, using the "back" button of your browser will
get you back.
Click on Photos
Almost any image or photo can be clicked on, acting as a portal
to take you somewhere else in the site. Often, this image takes
you to a a larger, more detailed image, with a descriptive caption
and artist information.
instance, try clicking on this image of the back of a truck. When
you get to the larger photo, you will have the option of seeing
a photo gallery of other images from Haiti. In this particular
case, the caption also includes links to two related documents
from the Collective Wisdom Initiative site. You can explore much
of the site this way, without ever going to the navigation menu.
Search for text anywhere on the site
In the upper right-hand corner of almost every page is the
tool, to help you locate specific names, topics, or phrases. It tries
to match your target words with those found in the hundreds of pages
on this site. Every single word and phrase on the site is indexed, although
a page less than two weeks old may not have been indexed. You are given
an option to continue the search through the whole web after the initial
search is done. Use this tool the same way you would use Google. In
fact, it actually is the Google search engine, only restricted to this
site. See Google
for search tips.
If you ever get lost...
Nearly every page has navigation menus on the left and the bottom,
or a navigation bar in the upper left-hand corner. And don't forget
your browser's "back" button. You can almost always get back
to where you started this way.
