Book Page

Each book page has three parts under the standard header (for more information on the standard header see On Every Page): the index card at the top; the contents list in the main pane, and navigation links on the left.

At the top: the index card

The grey index card at the top of the pane contains all you need to know about the VSI -- who wrote it, what it is about (both a short prose abstract, and also a list of some keywords -- some of the key concepts of the book), and bibliographic information.

  • On the right of the index card you may find a link off to find out more about the author.
  • Click on a keyword to run a search for other VSIs with that keyword -- great for finding related content.


In the middle: the contents list

  • Click on a chapter title to go to that chapter.
  • Click on [+] symbols to show all the front and end Matter (for example prefaces, and indexes.)
  • On the right is a Go to page box. If you have a page number from the print edition, enter it in the box and click go to jump to the beginning of that page in the online version of the content.


On the left: the navigation links

All the boxes on the left help you find exactly what you want -- either inside this VSI, on the VSI site, or elsewhere.
