Basic: Green circle. A good overview for any researcher beginning a new project.
Intermediate: Yellow square. Builds on research or information provided at the basic level. Intermediate is designed for more experienced researchers and the topics offer more detail.
Advanced: Red triangle. Provides research at a scholarly or professional level.
