How Resources are Organized Most of the Center's resources are organized by project, such as the Project to Enhance Research Literacy (PERL) or the Project on Integrative Health and the Triple Aim (PIHTA). Some will be organized by function, such as archives for the webinar series or blog posts.

Finding Resources This website can be searched in a variety of ways. On each Project page, a Navigation Tree will group content by recognizable topics within the project theme. Users can click through this tree to explore content and locate materials. For most, this is the simplest and most intuitive way to search. If you are not sure exactly what you are looking for, each project directory will also contain a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) that will link to the same content in a different way.
