March 2011Vol. 12, No. 2Redesigned NCCIC Website
The National Child Care Information and Technical Assistance Center (NCCIC) recently unveiled its redesigned website, which features improved navigation and an enhanced guided search function. Users may navigate the website in a number of ways. The menu bar at the top of the page provides a comprehensive list of topics and subtopics when scrolled over. Users also may use the detailed sitemap at the bottom of the page and the Quick Search and Advanced Search located at the top of each page to navigate the website. When conducting a keyword search, advanced search, or a library search, users may narrow down search results using specific criteria such as State, Topic, Year, Author, Keyword, Language, and Publication or Content Type.
In addition, a number of popular resources, including Office of Child Care and NCCIC news, National and State Quick Facts, the Early Childhood Professional Development Systems Toolkit, resources related to emergency preparedness, and those available in Spanish are highlighted on the home page. Users also may wish to share the NCCIC website and resources via the social networking websites Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
