1. Where can you search?

 

Well, there are several options. The most straightforward way to search is through our Search option on the Main Menu. This search option gives you everything on the website that is related to your search words, and you can filter your results by the type of content you're looking for (events, news, submissions, FAQS, etc). This search option is great and simple, but if you're looking to explore our database for relevant content, we have a special search toolbar just for that at the top of our webpage that you can access on every part of our website. It looks like this: 

 

 

2. How do you search?

If you click on it, it will expand and you will see our search engine. It looks like this: 

 

 

The top box under the word 'Search' is for searching texts; you can type anything in here from a letter to a whole sentence. If you would like to take a look at resources that are somehow related to early childhood, just type in 'early childhood' and then press 'Search' at the bottom right corner. 

If you would rather narrow your search even further, you can do that by the type of content, a key words, a relevant age group, or a type of intended audience. These are tags subjectively assigned by us, and in actuality, what we find useful for an academic might be interesting for teachers or parents as well. You can also narrow your search by choosing a specific author or a specific publisher or journal; an option hoping to help the academic audience.

Your results will appear underneath, showing the authors, dates and titles of the resources we have related to your search. You can order your results by the author's surname or by date ascending or descending. You can do this with the buttons circled on the picture below.

 

 

To look at your results, you can click on them to expand. Here, you'll find a short abstract about the resource, a link (provided we have one), and a list of key words and tags that are relevant to the article.

You can open a resource in a new window by right clicking on the title and then choosing 'Open link in new tab'.
