The Home and Help buttons appear at the top of every screen of CDE Browser, allowing you to return to the main page or access the user guide at any time.

The links located across the top of the window, above the main search form area provide access to other caDSR online resources, including the CDE Curation Tool, the NCI Terminology Server, Form Builder and the UML Model Browser.

The CDE Browser provides several different ways to find CDEs. The best method to use depends on what you are looking for. Generally, if you are looking for an existing collection, such as a list of the CDEs used on a form, or you want to browse the CDEs associated with a context or classification, you should use the context Search Tree. Otherwise, your best bet is to search by keyword using either the Basic Search or the Advanced Search form.

Regardless of which method you use, the results of your search will appear in the search results table, located in the area below the Basic search form in the CDE Browser window.
