Website Navigation and Information

New Site Navigation

With our new site tools, the navigation has changed significantly so it may confusing at first for our long time users.

Navigation on the Left

The first thing you'll notice is that all navigation has moved to the left side of the page. This change is really to make the site work as similar as possible from the desktop web browser to the mobile device (phone and tablet).

In that way you only have the learn the navigation once, and you'll find that using the site on desktop or phone provides a similar navigation experience.

How Navigation Works (Top Level)

Each tab has a 'main menu' element on the left site. Clicking on the title navigates you to the base page for that section of the site.

If there are arrows [ > ] in the menu, then there are sub-sections associated with the main area. Clicking on an arrow [ > ] allows you to go directly to one of the sub sections.

How Navigation Works (Section Level)

When you are in a section - all sub-sections are listed on the left hand navigation menu.

To go back to the main menu click on the back arrow [ < ] and you'll return to the main menu with all of the sections displayed.

Site Search

We also have a full site Google Search that is available at the top of the menu at all times. This works just like Google on the internet, but is focused on continent within our site.

Site Organization

With the new site tools, we have more flexibility to arrange content based on the audience, the subject, or both. In the long run this will make finding content much easier for everyone.

We've given a brief explanation of what is contained in each section.
