About this website
This website is part of a phased update to the Semel Institute and Department of Psychiatry websites, with the aim of eventually integrating the old NPI and NPIH sites. Inevitably some information will occasionally disappear, but there are many mechanisms to index and search the site content, enabling you to find the information you were after.
If you are accessing this site through a mobile device (iPhone, Blackberry etc) you can access a lightweight mobile version at mobile.semel.ucla.edu. Many common devices will be automatically redirected from the home page.
If you select the printer-friendly view of a page (small icon at the foot of each page), a plain text version of the content you are viewing is sent directly to your printer. Any web links that are embedded in such pages are listed at the foot of the page.
Certain sections of the site are organized into 'books:' when printing such content through the printer friendly pages, you get all the child pages, ie, either subordinate chapters or sections within the chapter.
Social bookmarking links can be found at the bottom of all pages in this site. These social sites allow you to store, tag and share links across the internet. You can share these links both with friends and people with similar interests. You can also access your links from any computer you happen to be using. So, if you come across a page that you find interesting and want to save for future reference or share it with other people, simply click on one of these links to add to your list. All of these sites are free to use but do require you to register. Once you have registered you can begin bookmarking. Each of the sites works slightly differently so use the links below to find out which service best suits your needs.
Searching for information
You can browse the site using the menus that appear on most pages, viewing the site map or by hunting through the various classification ('tagging') indexes. You can also browse publications stored on this site, and search publications by keyword.
Sometimes the navigation system isn't enough! You may have noticed a small search box in the top right hand corner of each webpage. If you type a search term, a custom search engine scans this website, hopefully coming up with the results you need. If, for whatever reason, you end up with a 'Page not found' type of error, you will also have the option to search through Google for the content you were after.
