THE INTERNET GURU by Dr. Brad Eden NEEDS Cataloger Houston, TX firstname.lastname@example.org In this issue of ASSOCIATES, we will be looking at the Internet tool that has quickly become the most popular and exciting system available - the World Wide Web (also known as WWW and/or W3). WWW is an on-line delivery tool that enables users to find and retrieve information by navigating through linked hypertext/hypermedia documents. In order to access WWW over the Internet, one must have access to a browser client, such as Cello, MacWeb, Netscape, or Mosaic, to name the most popular. Not only can one receive textual information in various colors, formats, and fonts, but sound and pictures are also available for viewing or downloading. Almost anything and everything can be found on WWW. The current fad is to develop one's own "home page," which involves using HTML format to produce an Internet document where one can place any information of interest, such as recipes, links to favorite Internet sites, personal essays and papers related to various interests, etc. There are literally thousands of home pages currently available on WWW. Here is a list of some of the more interesting and important WWW sites available. Notice that most of the addresses begin with http://[Internet address]. This is the "calling card" that needs to be placed in front of the address for a WWW document. One can access other Internet sites as well, using "calling cards" such as ftp://[Internet address] and gopher://[Internet address]. http://www.bubl.bath.ac.uk/BUBL/home.html Everything on or about libraries on the Internet gopher://marvel.loc.gov/ Library of Congress http://www.ucalgary.ca/~dkbrown/index.html Children's Literature Web Guide http://www.yahoo.com Can find everything on the Internet here http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/Web4Lib/favorite.html Favorite URLs from Web4Lib listserv http://www.lib.umich.edu/chhome.html Clearinghouse for Subject-Oriented Internet Resource Guides http://www.dcs.aber.ac.uk/~jjw0/index_ht.html Internet Educational Resources Guide http://turnpike.net/metro/adorn/index.html Soliton Enterprise's Center Stage These are just a few of the _millions_ of Internet resources available through WWW.
