"Full of poetry, history, and facts both useful and arcane, the *Directory*
is at once a networker's almanac and a browser's delight." -- Stephen Wolff,
Director, DNCRI, US National Science Foundation.

Here's how to track down virtually every network available to academics and
researchers. This new book, with its detailed compilation of host-level
information, provides everything you need to locate resources, send mail to
friends and colleagues worldwide, and answer questions about how to access
major national and international networks. Extensively cross-referenced
information on ARPANET/MILNET, BITNET, CSNET, ESnet, SPAN, THEnet, USENET,
and loads of others is all provided.

Included are detailed lists of hosts, site contacts, administrative domains,
and organizations. Plus, a tutorial chapter with handy reference tables
reveals electronic mail "secrets" that make it easier to take advantage of
networking.

Selected networks covered: NSFNET, AARNet, SPAN, BITNET, Internet, JUNET,
UUCP, CSNET, JANET, THEnet, EARN, NetNorth, HEPnet, ESnet, NSN, MILNET,
ONet, DRJ, ARPANET, Cypress, USENET, NORDUNET, and others.

Hopefully, the book does also address some more recent developments such
as the merger of BITNET and CSNET into CREN, and the fact that EARN, BITNET
and NetNorth are fully integrated components of what is loosely known as
BITNET (including also GULFNET, BITNETJP and others).

P.S.: I understand that the book is on stock in the USA for domestic
delivery only, at US $ 34.95; ordering can be done by credit card at
the toll-free number mentioned above, and the book will be shipped the
next working day. It would seem that it is not yet available in Europe.
