are just that .. Key in a URL (Uniform Resource
Locator) on the internet and you'll find yourself
connected quickly to whatever company (.com), agency
(.gov), or college or university (.edu) you seek and
there's much, much more than these three available to
you. There are URL's for the
military (.mil), networks (.net), organizations (.org),
states (.ca), and countries (.uk), and many other new
domain categories are now in the planning stage.
In addition to keying
in URLs, many web-sites (including
Cornell ones) contain links to other sites embodied
within their texts. These are single words, phrases,
or buttons that are differentiated by a different color
or underlining. The key determinant is that when
the cursor is placed over them, the cursor turns into
a pointing finger. Clicking the "back"
arrow in the upper left corner of the browser returns
you to your previous location.
Need to research a specific
subject? There's google.com
and a host of similar "aids" that will provide
you with the research information you seek. One
of my favorites is webmd.com
where I can search for the reason - and the remedy -
for almost any ailment or pain I might experience.
Let's put it this way
... there's absolutely no limit to the amount of information
on the web that's available to you - you only have to
determine and then key in the appropriate URL.
For space reasons, we're
forced to limit our '44 website links to those directly
concerned with Cornell University and the general Ithaca,
NY area - you'll find the most heavily-used URLs below.
Please understand that this is not a be-all and end-all
list. We welcome your suggestions regarding additions
to this Cornell-Ithaca listing of URL's.
