Visitors to Springfield's home page may find they can go more places than they anticipated via links to other sites. Through the "Springfield Community Profile," you can log on to one address and travel to destinations all over the 'Net.

Not only does the city's web site cover items of interest for citizens in the area, but it also provides a variety of links to other sites of interest in the community, in government and throughout the World Wide Web.

The city of Springfield's home page (located at springfield.missouri. org/gov) provides information about the city's history, government and community events.

The Community Profile (springfield. is a partnership between the Convention and Visitors Bureau, Springfield Public Schools, Springfield-Greene County Public Library, the city of Springfield, Ozarks Regional Information Online Network, City Utilities, Chamber of Commerce and Springfield-Branson Regional Airport.

One segment of the home page, called "Other Interesting Links," is the easiest path to Springfield-based sites such as the Convention and Visitors Bureau. Visitors can also find their way to the United States Department of Education and Junior Achievement. Government links, like the White House home page and CIA home page, are also found on this segment of Springfield's site.

Links found in the Kids' Section are specifically focused on the family.

Home pages for the National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse, National Fatherhood Initiative and the Family Violence Prevention Fund are just a click away.

Visitors to the city of Springfield's home page can also find interesting links while they learn more about city departments. For example, after reading about Springfield's recycling programs, visitors can link to the Environmental Protection Agency or to the "Hazardous Products in the Home" site, where they can tour a virtual home and identify potentially hazardous items.

Links to the American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration are part of the information page of the city's Health Department. Try all of the departments and see how far they can take you in the world of information.

The city's home page offers a wealth of information and interesting activities. Updates on volunteer boards and commissions are readily available to interested citizens. Children can play games in the kids' section. Parents can fill out opinion surveys or register a concern through the Internet service-request service.

Springfield's home page has something for everyone, whether you want to stick close to home or go exploring on the information superhighway.
