ABOUT ARNA WEBSPACE

ARNACONNECT is both a website and wiki-web site. If you are not a member, or you are a member but have not "signed in" it operates as a website.  You can click around to all of the pages and read what has been posted.  As a member you can sign in to the wiki-website  (wiki means fast) which enables you to use basic word processing skills to to share your ideas on the website.  With a wiki-website, you can be both a reader and designer. For the ARNA wiki, being one of the many web developers is a benefit of membership.  We hope you will want to  become a member
