Getting Started

1. What is the Jorum Repository?

Jorum is an online repository that provides access to learning and
teaching materials made available to teaching and support staff in
all Further and Higher Education Institutions in the UK.

The Repository offers a collection of learning and teaching
materials, covering a range of subject areas. Learning resources
range from word documents, images and diagrams to interactive
objects for you to use.

2. NULIS: Athens account

You must have an Athens account to access the learning and
teaching resources in the Jorum Repository. To register an Athens
account with NULIS go to:
http://nulis.napier.ac.uk/ATHENS/athens.htm. This link will direct
you to the NULIS Athens FAQ information page and provide you
with instructions on what steps to take next.

3. Getting Started

Go to http://www.jorum.ac.uk/

  Familiarise yourself with the Jorum home page.
  Tip! Notice the text ‘you are here: home’ displayed to the right
  hand side of the page just under the main heading. This text
  element not only notifies the page you are viewing, but also acts
  as a navigational element throughout the website. It is a useful
  feature that will be explained in further detail.

  The home page provides you with a short overview of the Jorum
  resource. To find out more about the service select the (read
  more) navigational link. This directs you to the ‘Getting Started’
  page, also located to the left navigation panel.




                             Figure 2. The Jorum Home Page.

Tip! As discussed previously in step three, notice the text element
‘you are here: home’ has now been enabled. This acts a
navigational element. To get back to the home page select the
‘home’ link. When browsing other web pages on this site the home
link will always display in this area and never in left hand
navigation. Try to get used to using this upper navigational link as
opposed to using the back button. The home page link does not
appear to the left navigational panel.
