The User Interface
In designing this online catalog's user interface, we have made every effort to produce an intuitive and unobtrusive system that allows you to browse through this document quickly and in a natural manner. At the bottom of each page in this catalog, you will find a navigational toolbar designed to help you find your way through the catalog and access resources related to the catalog. Here are some brief explanations of the functions of each of the buttons that may appear in the toolbar. (Note: not all buttons may appear on all pages.)
Info bar: a link to general information about the College, as provided on the Admissions Department pages.
Up: takes you "up" one level in the hierarchy of pages in this catalog.
Back: a link to the previous page in a series of pages.
Next: a link to the next page in a series of pages.
Home: a link back to the Bates Home Page.
Reply: lets you send feedback to the publisher of this catalog, the Registrar of the College.
Help: Obviously you've figured out what this button does. :)
