Searching for Projects

Search bar

Find projects using the search function in the left menu bar of any page on this site.

 

search results

The results page provides an RSS feed to notify you when new matches are added. A link to the Advanced Search page can help refine your results.

 

Advanced search page

You can also go directly to the Advanced Search page, which allows you to search by project title and description, or to choose from a list of keywords.

 

Using keywords

Keywords are provided by project leaders, specifically indicating project location, topic, audience, and goals.  You can scroll through the complete list of keywords and choose one or many using Ctrl-click.

 

Add a Project

Project leaders can add their projects by visiting the Project Registry.

 

Project Pages

Basic information

Project pages are created when a project leader enters information into the project registry (add a project). To keep things simple for both entering and accessing information, these pages cover just the basics.

In addition to the project name and URL, project leaders can choose to enter:

  1. partnering organizations
  2. an image or logo
  3. a brief description of the project
  4. keywords
  5. associated parent or affiliate projects (what does this mean?)
  6. contact information

Links

Clicking on the project image will always take you out of the Gateway to the project's own website (or, if no project website is available, then to the website of the organization). Specified links are also provided under the paragraph description on every page.

As appropriate, links are also provided to parent or affiliate projects.
