If youre using a 3.0 browser, some of the sites functionality
is limitedbut you will still have access to the site and all
of its information.
Navigating the site
Like the print version, the website is organized into sections including
class notes, back
issues, services and resources.
Rowanmagazine.com also offers a sitemap
for those who prefer navigating with text.
Our research shows that 95 percent of web surfers are surfing at
a screen resolution of 800x600 or higher. Because 800x600 is so
prevalent, the magazine has selected to use it as the sites
default resolution. This gives the site more screen real estate
for content and design purposes but it makes viewing all of the
site content difficult on a 640x480 display. If your monitor supports
it, you can easily switch your computer monitors resolution
to 800x600. Follow the simple instructions below:
In the Start menu go to Settings, then
Control Panels, and then "Display.
Under your Apple Menu Items, go to Control
Panels and then Monitors & Sound.
Select the Settings tab.
Under the Resolution option, select 800x600.
Under Screen Area select 800x600. Select
OK and your screen will reset to the new resolution.
Your screen will reset to the new resolution. Click the
close box in the window.
This site looks best using thousands of colors. Again, you can set
this using the Monitors & Sound control panel on
a Mac or the Display control panel on a PC.

Make sure your search terms are spelled correctly. The search engine
will attempt to find words that sound similar to your search terms
- but it is always best to spell the search terms correctly.
Use multiple words This will
return more refined results than a search from a single word.
Use similar words The more
similar words you use in a search, the more relevant results will
be to the words that you are searching for.
Use appropriate capitalization
Capitalize proper nouns such as the name of a person. Lowercase
words will match any words of any case.
Use quotation marks for exact matches
You can force exact matches by using quotation marks. For example,
a search for content management system will only return
results that include those words in that order.
Use Boolean plus (+) or minus (-) operators
Precede a search term or phrase with a plus sign (+) to indicate
it must appear in a search result. Precede a search term with a
minus sign (-) to indicate an undesirable search term or phrase
that must not appear in a search result. For example, searching
for +cats -Siamese will return results that are about cats, but
not about Siamese cats.
