Search and find enterprise and economic development resources on the Web

Three websites of the network you are using were introduced online at the beginning of 1997. Each website had a state-of-the-art an application for searching internally. One website, Find Me Here.com, became the search and find center for the network. In other words, network users could search FMH to find resources throughout all three websites.

The concept the network and our (who we are) policy today is to operate open access.

Unrelated to the network, Google came alone in 1997. It's impact on searching the Web is history. Google gathered information about network resources. The open access concept for creating the network was amended so that it was repositioned to accommodate users searching the Web for resources, rather than just three websites.

Shortly after the end of 1990's the network was privileged to add a custom version of Google Search so that users now have two search choices readily at hand. And, an offer of free search assistance to help searchers avoid getting stuck at dead end. The offer isn't limited just to Google and Network Search, but to other search engines as well. The following search results help button is linked to information about the assistance offered
