The InfoDesk is a powerful search engine and browser for locating information on LinkAge 2000 and beyond. There are two parts to the InfoDesk: the search engine and the hierarchical listing of information.
To use the search engine, type your query into the box and then press submit. The InfoDesk will display the results it finds. First, it lists matches in the description of external links. This means that if your search term is in the title of another s ite, you can go there by clicking on the site's name. For example, searching for "depression" will return Duke University's resource guide on depression. This is not a part of LinkAge 2000. Next, match in category names means that your search term matc hes the NAME of one of our lists of sites. Matches in keywords means that the links shown are related conceptually to the term you entered. Matches in full-text means that the term you entered is found within the actualy content a document on LinkAge 20 00.
InfoDesk does NOT understand boolean search terms like AND, OR, and NOT. The full-text search matches match partial words also, for example "Alz" will match Alzheimer's and Alzheimer. The search is also not case sensitive so "alzheimer" is the same as " AlzHeImeR"
