The Maxwell Institute website has always been a complex entity. That is part of what makes it a valuable resource. This new site has been in the works for many months, and we are still refining details and functions so that we can present you with the best possible site. We invite your feedback and hope that you will be patient as we continue to improve this resource.
Is a search engine available on the new site? Yes. The best way to start is by clicking on the magnifying glass icon in the upper right-hand corner of the home page and typing in your search query. After your results appear, you can drill them down using the filter found on the right-hand side, about mid-page. There are many refinements to our search engine coming.
Are past publications from the Maxwell Institute still available online? Yes. Find publications from the old site at one of two Maxwell Institute Press links on the home page—one in the upper right-hand corner next to the magnifying glass, and one on the slider at the bottom. There are links on the Press page to all the past publications. No subscription is necessary to access these.
What happened to Multimedia? We are in the process of moving our multimedia files to the new site.
Why is it so difficult to search by author? Please be patient with this one. Many improvements are coming.
What about all my saved links and favorites from the old site? A system is being created to re-direct all the URLs from the old site to their locations in the new site. So all the favorites, bookmarks, URLs embedded in articles, footnotes, etc., will eventually be live links again.
What are the Research Units? The Maxwell Institute is made up of several entities, and on this new site that fact is much more evident. The sites for these units are in the process of becoming repositories for a lot of interesting information. Keep checking back.
