One way to find articles in the Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia is by browsing through the categories, rather than doing a keyword search.


Contents

Main Page

On the Main Page of the Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia, you will see an alphabetical listing of all the main categories under which all of the articles are organized. Any given article may be assigned to more than one category, so there may be several different ways of finding it.

Category Pages

When you click on one of the categories from the main page, you will be brought to the category page, where all of the articles in that category are listed alphabetically by title. Personal names are listed under the first letter of the last name.

Subcategories

In a few cases, the main categories will have subcategories as well. These will be listed alphabetically on the category page, above the other articles in the main category.

Articles

Clicking on the name of an article on the category page will take you directly to that article. Within an article, you will find links in the text to any number of other articles whose subjects are mentioned. There may also be direct links to related articles under See Also, and you can see a list of articles that link to your article by clicking on What links here under Toolbox on the left side of the screen. Finally, you can return to the parent category page or go to other category pages by clicking on the names of the categories listed at the bottom of each article.
