HOW TO NAVIGATE THIS SITE
Resources > Navigation
There are five main topical areas on this web site: Events, People, Places, Processes,
and Science. These are further divided
into sub-sections, each with its own introduction. The main topical
areas can be accessed by clicking on a button on the horizontal bar above.
Sub-sections can be accessed by clicking on a topic in the vertical column to
your left. If you would like to begin with a quick survey of the Manhattan
Project, try reading, in order, the eight Event sub-section pages,
beginning with Atomic
Discoveries, 1890s-1939. In addition to the main topical areas, the
Resources section on the above button bar provides access to a variety of
resource materials, including photos, documents, maps, and published
When completed, The Manhattan Project: An Interactive History
will total some 120,000 words and over 250 pages and 500 images. The
site is being implemented incrementally, with the "Events of the
Manhattan Project" and "Resources Relating to the Manhattan
Project" sections the first part to go online. Click on the Events or Resources
buttons above or visit the Site Map,
for a listing of currently available pages.
Numerous internal links within
the content of the pages allows you to easily move from page to page.
Whenever you see text that is linked and bold, such as this, it is a link that points to another
page on this web site. Normally a term is made into a link only the
first time it is mentioned on each page. Whenever you see text that is
linked but not in bold, such as
this, it is a link to a web page external to this web site. This
usually only occurs in the "Suggested Readings" or "Sources
and Notes" for each entry. Text that is in bold but not linked, such
as this, is a link to a page that is not yet available.
Source information for photographs and other images is in the "Sources
and Notes" for each entry. Click on any photograph to view a
larger version of it (if one is available). Some photographs have
their own web pages with further background information; a list of these
"photograph pages" is available in the Photo Gallery.
