[On the Internet]
In the future, this page will expand to contain a very concise collection of what links we've found are the most useful to our clients. Everyone and anyone has a page of favorite links - we'll try and make this page only point to the most useful and important links for software, news and information, entertainment, sports, and the net itself. Here are some links to get you started.

The World Wide Web is an exciting source of information provided by the government, association, corporations and educational institutions. Our goal is to point Collectanea subscribers to what we have found to the places on the Web where they can directly access quality information. As a result, our Web links quite often point to a database or directory of information deep within a site rather than the home page or welcome page. Collectanea offers a simple, cost-effective solution to corporate and home PC users by providing full text periodicals and pamphlets hyperlinked to company information and reviewed sites on the Web. Collectanea offers 6 full text collections:


Corporate Researcher...for your work
Parent Teacher Aide...for homework assistance
Home Economist...for your finances & household planning
Medical Advisor...for health problems & prevention
U Collectanea...for undergraduate or graduate study
Sports & Leisure...for hobbies, travel & fun
