Structure of site

The main content of the site consists of the resource library, events listings and researcher database.

The resource library consists of items relevant to child migration; these can be reports, working papers, articles, websites or other material such as presentations from conferences.  Each resource is categorised by main themes, sub themes, tertiary themes and key words.  Each level of theme provides another level of filtering to the user that leads to narrower search results.  Main, sub and tertiary themes are pre-defined but keywords are specific to each resource and therefore are added to the catalogue as they are recognised within a resource.

Users who are new to the topic of child migration will find the main themes and sub themes very useful to access the documents.  On the other hand, users who are looking for specific content within the large topic of child migration, will find the tertiary themes and keyword filters very useful.

Main Themes:  The resource library will divide tall the content into three broad themes. There will be greater concentration of resources in the Independent Child Migration due to the nature of the research that is conducted on children.

Sub Themes:  Each main theme is divided into three sub-themes. The sub-themes provide  broad geographic  filters.   

Tertiary Themes: Tertiary themes provide another layer of filter for the resources. These themes focus on the types for migration of the children.

Keywords: Keywords provide another way of narrowing the search.  These terms are specific to the the content of the resource. These terms can be used to filter by specific countries, regions, age, gender, organisations, concepts etc.
