Introduction

The Chantry Library's Web Resources page uses Delicious, third-party software, to create a well organised, easy to use system for housing details of conservation-related websites and direct links. Access to the  site, and instructions on how to use it can be found below.

This is a growing resource and contributions of useful websites are most welcome. To contribute a site please send details of the URL (Web address) to the Librarian: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Using the Web Resources page

The Web Resources page is split into two distinct columns

 web resources    

 

 

 

 

 

                                                 

The left-hand column displays a list of resources, each one with a heading, a brief resource description, and a series of "tags". The right-hand column contains a list of all the tags that have been used - use these subject-specific tags to navigate, and to investigate resources that may be of interest to you.

Some of the tags have been compiled into subject categories and are included in "tag bundles".  For example the tag bundle Online-Reference Resources includes tags such as abstracting_services and blog.   Tag bundles can help refine your search to specific subject areas or categories.

Searching

There are now four ways of searching the Web Resources page itself:

  • Browse searching - The resources shown on each page are arranged in the order in which they were added. Each page displays 20 resources. To browse through the different pages, left-click on the numbered page links at the bottom of the page.

  • Search by tag - Each resource is tagged with a series of topical words or phrases, which are then displayed in the right-hand column. Clicking on a tag in this column will produce a list of all the corresponding resources in the left-hand column. Therefore, if you wish to see a list of the electronic journals indexed in the Web resources page, click on the "e-journals" tag.

  • Search using one of the tag bundles.

  • Search using the Heritage Conservation Search Engine  - The websites listed in the Web resources page are now fully searchable using the Heritage Conservation Search Engine, powered by GoogleTM.

 Accessing a resource

Once you have found an interesting resource in the Web Resources page, accessing it couldn't be easier. Simply position the cursor over the title of the relevant resource (the text in blue in the left-hand column) and left-click on your mouse. You will then be directed to the resource you are interested in.

To access a site found by the Heritage Conservation Search Engine simply left-click on the relevant search result and left-click - just as you would in a standard search engine.
