Why use The Network?

It is a share network. You can freely search for resources. Your searches are not monitored; however, should you want to request it, we (who we are) offer free assistance to help you avoid search dead ends.

We strive to pass you on ASAP to exactly what you are looking for as it relates our mission, as opposed to holding you in our websites, which are open access so that all visitors, users, and mission participants are equally welcomed.

You incur no cost or obligation to us should you chose to become a participant in the mission. Our support of the mission is mainly about providing a means of putting participants together with mission contacts.

The recommended tool for searching for mission contacts as well as places of interest and their location data suppliers is provided below and a tool for Googling the Web as well as inside .network websites below that. Click on the following help button before searching. Page up and select file tabs for .network user guides. The guides cover searching for contacts, locations, and resources.
