How to Use This Web App

View on Any Device

This web app was designed to let you utilize it on any common computer browser, or portable device. The page content should size to fit on your screen. If your portable device causes the text to be rendered at a size too small for you to easily read, try turning the device to a landscape orientation to increase its size.

Two Ways to Use This Glossary

The glossary terms can be accessed through two different methods; the glossary index menu, which is organized by subject matter, and a searchable index list organized alphabetically by the glossary term.

  1. Main Content Menu
    The main content menu organizes glossary terms by the primary topic they fall under. Click on the category, and subcategory, to reach a list of terms for that subject.

    To return to the page you were last at, simply click the Back button in the upper left corner of the screen. You can return to the home page at any time by clicking the Home button.
  2. Index of Terms
    This index page contains all the glossary terms included in the app in alphabetical order. If you know which term you are looking for, type it into the search window at the top, and the list will shorten to only those terms which contain the text you have entered. Click on the desired term to go directly to its glossary page.
