Our website has been redesigned and makes use of better technology to deliver the pages. The old static menu has been replaced by a dynamic one that shows links to pages that are around the current one you are on. These means that the site is now a web that you can move across, up and down. Hopefully this means that you can find out more about the subject you are interested in as the organisation of the site is exposed to you more fully.
The site navigation is organised into four main sections:
Any links that appear under the Navigate up to... heading on the left hand side take you UP a level in the site organisation (i.e they 'generalise').
Links that appear under the Pages in this section... heading take you DOWN a level (i.e they specialise)
Links that appear under the Other sections of interest... heading take you to pages that are in a similar context to the one you're on. They move you ACROSS the web.
This is best explained by a diagram. Imagine that the site is organised like a family tree:
Wherever you are on the tree, you can see links to the surrounding branches.
Finally, there is the site Index which is located in the top right corner. This is an A-Z index of all of the Pages on the website and can be used whichever page you are currently on. When you click a letter the page will reload with the Index of pages shown in a drop-down box underneath the current page heading.
If you want to go to an area on the site, click with the left mouse button to go there. To get back to the start pages at any time click on the home button at the top left of each page. The start page is known as the home page.
If you can go to another section of the site via a link in the text, the text will be in a different colour like this and the mouse pointer will change to a hand. If you click with the mouse on this section of text it will take you to more information on that topic.
Don't worry if you go to the wrong page as you can click on Back on the Buttons bar or View > Go to > Back in Internet Explorer. You can do this again and again, until you get back to where you want to be.
Anywhere your pointer looks like a hand rather than an arrow or I then it means you can click and go somewhere else on the site
