My guide to INTERNET Resources in Agriculture is now available at three
different sites.

The description below is from the SURANET guide maintained by Michael Taranto
of NIC Services at SURAnet.

NOT JUST COWS - A Guide to INTERNET/Bitnet Resources in Agriculture and Related
Sciences; Written and Compiled by Wilfred Drew, 5/8/92; SUNY at Morrisville
College of Agriculture and Technology.

The purpose of this Guide is to list Agricultural and Related Sciences
information resources available through the INTERNET. Agricultural information
resources listed include; an index of over 40 libraries with extensive
collections in agriculture; INTERNET BBS such as Advanced Technology
Information Network and CENET; a collection of mail based services such as
Almanac Servers and over 60 Listserve Discussion Groups; other miscellaneous
information resources such as WAIS and FEDIX.

Before you print out the WordPerfect file, be sure to generate the table of
contents file as the paging will be different from my original file due to
different default printers. I also used the master document and sub document
features of WordPerfect so WP will ask you if the document needs generating
before you can print it.

Please feel free to use this guide in any way you want as long as YOU DO NOT
CHARGE ANY ONE FOR A COPY. Please also credit me for my work. It took a lot
of digging to assemble this guide. I could have put the standard copy right
statement in it but I hate those things and will only do that if necessary.

=================How to FTP========================================

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It allows a person to transfer
files between two systems, generally connect over local area networks or
wide area networks, such as the Internet.

Sample FTP session
The commands you enter are at ftp> prompt.
