Virtual Library Links:
Tips on Virtual Library navigation
While browsing the Virtual Library, keep in mind: When you click on your first external link (i.e., any link that brings you to a page outside of this UMass Lowell's Center for Women & Work webpage), a second browser window
This allows you to look at external webpages without losing track of the Center for Women & Work webpage. You can view the external page, and then switch your attention back to the first web browser window which still has the CWW webpage. You won't have to keep hitting your browser's "Back" button to find us again!
Leaving this second window open makes things easier. If you close the window (after looking at one external site), the next external link that you click on will open up a new window anyway! And it takes longer for a new window to be opened than for a page to load into an already existing window.
