Main Content – Homepage
There is a slide show (or slider) in the main content section of the Homepage. Each picture represents a specific topic. Choose the topic of interest and click on the image. Clicking the image takes the user to the appropriate webpage. The slider allows the user to review the website without having to search under each tab (see Figure 1).
Sidebars are located on the right side of the display (see Figure 4). All items in the Sidebar send the user to external links that open in a new tab. In other words, if a box is clicked, a new page will open in the browser, taking the user to that new webpage. Each of the following resources have its own icon, indicating the type of media being provided. Examples are shown in the sidebar on the right side of this webpage.
- Society & association websites — institution building icon
- Governmental websites — flag icon
- Journal article — page icon
- Videos — video camera icon
- Newspaper articles — newspaper icon
