Homepage :: Help
The structure of the Library web pages is uniform for all branch libraries that constitute the Library of the University of Crete. Page navigation is performed mainly through the selection of options that are displayed at the home page. Information is grouped in sections. There are 6 main sections of information:
  • Local collections
  • User’s services
  • General information
  • Useful links
  • News
  • Contact
Each of the above sections may be subdivided into subsections, which in turn may also be further subdivided in a menu like hierarchy.
For example the section User’s services includes the following:
  • Circulation
  • Inter Library Loan
  • Reference and Information Services
  • European Documentation Centre etc
The subsection Circulation (when selected) consists from the following menu items, “About the circulation service”, “Regulation of borrowing”, “Membership”, “Staff” which become visible in a new page as soon as the Circulation option is clicked.
On the upper left corner box of the home page there are given frequently used pages. These pages are assumed to be used mainly by new library user.
