french neologism for link directory: cybergraphie

We are searching to construct a french word in the family of "bibliographie", "iconographie", etc. for a list of links to internet at the end of an article or a book.
Some people propose "dictyographie" but that seems to be improper because there is just one net.
I'd like "apsidographie" (from apsis, "node of a net" (Homer, Il. 5.487) but this root is not understandable by French people (with a very different meaning it gives us the word "abside") ; "epigraphie" would be simpler (too simple ?) by haplology of an "epigraphographie".
How would you say for such a list in modern greek ?
Any idea for a french word based on ancient Greek ?
Thanks in advance,

Hi, menegos. In Greek "link" is translated as "syndesmos", so a word like "syndesmographia" ("syndesmographie") would be possible, I guess. As long as you can pronounce it.

Thanks, frem.
But you're right, the word would be quite strange ! I'll choose probably a simple "Liens utiles" ...

The word 'webographie' is already quite popular, but it is quite valid to use the less popular 'cybergraphie', which does have both its roots firmly based in Greek.
