| Tool box

Internet, inexhaustible source of information.

The World Wide Web ( www ) allows to consult via hyperlinks the sites of the whole world. We compiled and selected several sites offering in free access a multitude of information which we grouped under diverse sections. Some of them can appear to be a duplication, the visitor will choose the site suiting better to him. We invite the Internet users to click these links and to explore the listed sites.
This page is designed as a real “Toolbox” or more exactly a ” e-Tool box ” .

We wish you a good “e-navigation”.
