    Dear Biomch-L subscribers,

    More and more information is becoming accessible through
    Internet. The following information was originally posted to
    LSTOWN-L@SEARN, and describes how to access the files of the
    Library of Congress. This represents an enormous amount of
    information. Several gopher servers will also be providing
    access to this database.

    Telnet and gopher should be available at most Internet sites.
