In this section, you can search by keyword.
You can search by entering the name of a trade or occupation, a training program, a program number or some other keyword related to a trade or occupation.
A keyword search enables you to search for one or more words specifically linked to an exploration tool in a database containing all types of tools and all fields of interest, messages posted in the forum and blog posts. You can surf from one tab to another in order to better understand the results posted.
This function allows members to save the links for the tools they find useful and interesting and to keep them all in one place so they do not have to do a search each time they want to consult them.
You can display your bookmarked tools by type: experiential tools, virtual visits and key people and other tools. Once you have bookmarked your tools, use the dropdown menu near the title “Type of tool” to access them again.
You can also determine the number of bookmarks that are displayed per page.
You can eliminate a bookmark. Just click on the function “Delete from my bookmarks” when you want to get rid of a bookmark.
Note: If the owner of a tool decides to eliminate it from the POP Index, the tool will automatically be deleted from your bookmarks.

An aggregator is a software or Web site service that displays several sources of Web content (RSS feeds) in real time at a single location; in other words, an information management tool.
The POP Index Web site allows its members to group in an aggregator the various Web references they want to keep. Members can follow changes made on these sites by means of the aggregator.
If you already have some Web site references listed in the form of RSS feeds, you can import all of them in a single procedure by using an OPML file (Outline Processor Markup Language). There are various procedures for creating this kind of file. The simplest way is to use the “Create an OPML file,” function in your current aggregator. Once this file has been created, you can import your feeds into the aggregator on the POP Index Web site.
Using the same type of OPML file, you can also export the references you wish to follow via the aggregator on the POP Index Web site to another aggregator.
