Help Desk Bookshelf
NCF provides this 'shelf', and members contribute the 'books'. Just like
walking into a library or a bookstore, you can look for books on a topic,
look for books from your favourite authors, or just browse around.
Note: The list below are links to web pages created and maintained by the
author of that page, and express their personal opinions. Just as in any
bookshelf, you may find that opinions from different authors vary. Why not
contribute your own viewpoints?

This 'bookshelf' is a place for NCF members to share tips and advice
on the use of NCF services and the internet. If you have information you would
like to share with other members, why not author a web page and have a
link to it here on NCF's shelf? Helping others achieve the benefits of the
internet helps make the region a better place.
Want to be an author too? Just create a web page on topics relating to
the use of NCF or the internet, and ask the NCF Office to add it to the
NCF Help Desk Bookshelf. If there is already a book on the topic that
you'd like to write about, that's no problem -- offer people
your perspective, which might suit their style and circumstances
better than anything already on the shelf.
The Help Desk Book Club is a
place for talking about things relating to the NCF Help Desk Bookshelf.
