Instant access to our website from any site on the web

Get instant access to useful links and search engines
Get updates through the built-in library news feeds (RSS)

E-Mail on the go!

Here's a cool site to keep in mind while traveling for business or pleasure.

If you need to keep in touch via your work e-mail, you can read it anywhere online by visiting Mail2Web. This is great for those corporate e-mail systems that don't offer a web-based interface.
The letters will remain as new mail and will download to your regular inbox when you return to work and check your mail through your usual method.

This site also works with the commercial e-mail sites too.
