Instructions for Use

  1. This website is simple to use and like most other basic websites. When you open the website you will see, apart from the introduction, a list of the subjects (or categories) under which documents are available. Just click on the one you want to visit, and you will be magically transported there.
  2. Once you have opened a category page, you will see an introduction to the category and if you scroll down you will find a list of the documents available under that category, along with a facsimile of their cover, and their year of publication and title.
  3. In each section, the titles are listed in the order of their year of publication, with the earliest on top.
  4. In some sections you will see, as you scroll to the end, a heading announcing “Relevant Unpublished/Out-of-print Documents by Other Authors”. All such documents will also be listed in the order of publication. There might also be other subheadings, demarcating the list of documents that follow from those that came earlier.
  5. Next to (to the right of) each document title you will see a green button which invites you to “Download”. If you click that button, the related document will open on your screen. You can scroll down, enlarging or reducing it.
  6. If you want to save the document on your computer or on to some storage device, like a thumb drive, then please click on another download arrow (upper right of the screen, left of the “print” icon – at least on my laptop), and it will ask you where to save it and with what name.
  7. For some documents, above the “Download” green button there will be another green button inviting you to “View”. If you click this, then the document will appear on your screen in a flip-able mode, and you can browse or read it by flipping from page to page.
  8. Whenever you want to exit this “flip” mode, just click and hold down the “back” arrow on the top-left of your screen. Soon a menu will appear with a list of all the places you have been to recently, and you can choose to ge back to an earlier location.
  9. In some categories, apart from the documents listed for that category, there are also sub-categories, each with its own set of documents. This is the case, for example, with “Conservation of Wildlife”, “Environment and Forests”, and “Large Dams”. As you reach the end of the list of documents in the main category,  you will find green colour tabs listing the category and the sub-categories, and indicating where they are located (upwards or downwards). Click on the tab for the sub-category you want to visit, and you will be immediately transported there.
