Canadian Pollution Prevention Information Clearinghouse User Guide

Record Display

Titles

Each record has two titles, the first title of the record in the display is the Canadian Pollution Prevention Information Clearinghouse (CPPIC) title and the second title of the record is the full resource title. CPPIC titles are shortened versions of the full resource title and are displayed in the keyword and sector search results. If a resource's CPPIC title is the same as the full resource title, only the full resource title will be displayed. This feature was incorporated to facilitate efficient reading and display of the search results.

Icons

Each record can have up to four icons which are displayed at the bottom of the page. These icons include a red maple leaf which indicates that the resource is Canadian; a blue "Fr" which indicates that the resource is available in French; a notebook which indicates that the resource is a case study; and a mathematical formula which indicates that the resource is written using technical language or terminology.
