Getting Around

There are two different page layouts used in the Library, one is used as landing pages that lists the contents of a teaching or the teachings in the Library. The other is the document layout that contains the content of the teaching. The layouts are similar but differ as described below.

Landing Pages

Landing Page

Heading

The heading is found on every page including document pages. It’s a link and will always return back to the Library card catalog. Clicking the header is a way to move around the library quickly.

Teaching

The teaching is found on every page and identifies the source of the content. It is not a link because the page is the homepage of the teaching.

The menu offers access to the functions available on the page. The options available may vary slightly between landing pages.

Bookmark and Annotation
Displays a list of bookmarks and associated annotations defined for all components of the teachings. See Bookmarks and Annotations in the Get Acquainted section for details.
CMI Search
Displays a dialog that allows you to search through all components of the teaching for a simple word or phrase. See CMI Search in the Get Acquainted section for details.
Help
This item offers several help options. Tour This Page and Getting Around provide a quick interactive tour of features on the page. The other options link to this documentation.
Sign In/Sign Out

You can create an account and sign in. This is most useful when working with bookmarks causing bookmarks to be stored in the cloud. In this way bookmarks are sync'd between devices. Bookmarks created when you are not sign in are available only on the device in which they were created.

It is for this reason that the bookmark menu option and the sign in/sign out icon shows red when you are not signed in.

See the Accounts section of the Get Acquainted guide for more information.


Document Pages

Document pages are similar to landing pages but have more functionality. Transcripts, lessons, and other documents use this layout.
