CIRCLE editors have placed each resource into one or more categories (subject or topic). The browse section of the
website allows users to "page" through these categories, viewing a list of subcategories and resources placed in each.
Do you want to see what's out there? Are you just curious about what resources are available for Bible or
Biology? Adventist Philosophy of Education? or Small Schools? Then browsing is for you. CIRCLE is
designed to be the "Yahoo! of Adventist education". Just as Yahoo! allows users to browse a list of web
site categories, CIRCLE allows anyone interested in Adventist education to browse a particular subject
area or topic.
For example, if you are a history teacher, select the Social Studies
entry in the subject
pull-down list. This will show you a list of subcategories, e.g. History
by resources for the broad category. How do I Find a Specific Category?
CIRCLE resources are organized into two main sections: subjects and topics. Subjects focus on curriculum or course content.
Topics organize instructional and administrative tools. The subject and topic lists can be accessed from the top navigation bar.
If you don't find what you are looking for in the list of subjects or topics, try the category tree or keywords. The
, like a site map, is a graphic representation of CIRCLE's category
hierarchy. Scanning the keyword lists
may help you discover areas to
explore. In both the category tree and keyword lists, click on the selected word to go directly to the resources
linked to it.
At times it may be helpful to view all resources in the CIRCLE database. Select View All Resources
the Browse Tools box
. Resources are displayed in date order,
starting with most recent.
Viewing all resources is most useful when combined with filters to limit the list. For example, if you?re looking
for all resources of a specific type, like all journals or all computer software, add the desired resource type
. See the filters help page
for more information.
Remember that your filter(s) will remain set even after you leave the resource list. If you want to view all
resources in a specific category, you will need to delete the filters.
If you don't want to wade through a long list of resources, but don't know exactly what you are looking for,
try browsing with filters. See the filters help page
for more information.
