Subject Browse

In netTrekker, resources are organized by academic subjects. One way you can refine your search is by drilling down through subjects, topics, and subtopics that best describe or define the concepts or subjects you are looking for. Use Browse > Subjects for this type of search. Scroll through the carousel of Subject choices, if necessary, using the orange arrows ( or ). If an arrow is gray, there are no choices available scrolling in that direction.

Each time you choose a topic as you drill down through a category, you will find a list of resources directly related to your topic. At this point, you can click on one of the titles in the list to view the resource, OR
