You can search the website as a whole with free search terms using the ‘search’ button that appears in the top right-hand corner of every page of the website (see screen shot).
The search function is limited in that it identifies pages that include your search term but you then have to scroll through the pages in question to find the relevant items
You can use a simple four-step process to search the INPP website indexes
Step 1 – Read the Brief Introduction to the Index you want to search
Each table or group of tables starts with a brief introduction for those not familiar with the area in question
The screen shot (Step 1) shows by way of example the start of the brief introduction to the group of tables for values-based practice in the Impact section of the website (sub-page for service development initiatives)
Step 2 – Scan the List of Tables in the Index
Below the brief introduction you will find a list of the tables for that section.
The screen shot (Step 2) shows the list of the four tables summarising service development initiatives from values-based practice concerned with Regulation and Guidance
Step 3 – Click on the Table or Tables you want to search
You can open up each table by clicking on the list in question
The screen shot (Step 3) shows the opening entries in the Table that opens up when you click on the first of the lists in screen shot illustrating Step 2
Step 4 – Search
There are now three ways of searching the entries indexed in the Table or Tables you have opened
The tables offer only a summary for each entry – further information is generally available via links from marked terms or phrases in the entry in question
In the Screen Shot illustrating Step 3, for example, the links are included in the names in the right-hand column of the table – these links take you to more detailed personal profiles (in this instance these are hosted on the website for the VBP Collaborating Centre)
