SIDDALL@KENYON.EDU RICE@KENYON.EDU Internet Discussion Groups{1}

Our Internet connection provides access to an incredible volume of information. While some of this information may change little across the course of a week, ac tive discussion groups discuss hours-old developments as they occur. Discussion grou ps, also called mailing lists, are based on electronic mail and circulate topical information to subscribers of each group.

How Internet Discussion Groups Work Thousands of e-mail discussion groups exist, from circles of leading scholars engaged in a moderated discussion, to large, unmoderated popular-culture groups. Discussion groups provide dialogues in humanities and fine arts, on political issues and the latest scientific findings, news on events, funding, employment, and channels for questions and answers. Internet discussion groups are useful in research and creative work, and can be particularly worthwhile in teaching. Essentially, your name is placed on a list and you receive information contributed to that list. In some instances, formal discussions are moderated by someone who maintains a focus on the topic by eliminating irrelevant mail. In other cases, a computer program merely echoes contributions to everyone on the list. Types of Addresses Discussion groups usually have both an administrative and a forwarding address. In order to add your name to the list, have it removed, or ask questions about the list, write to the administrative address. The forwarding address will take whatever you send it and echo that message to the entire discussion group. Types of Discussion Groups There are two major types of discussion groups. The first, known as LISTSERVs, are based on the BITNET and have a standard set of procedures and commands. Internet-based discussion groups are usually referred to as LIST-REQUESTS and a number of popular programs exist to handle the groups. Discussion groups that are run at Kenyon use the listrequest syntax.

Fictitious Examples Following are examples of the syntax for using listrequest and listserv discussion groups. List-Request Log into the VAX Type MAIL at the $ prompt; press <ENTER> At the TO: prompt, type MX%"" Then press <ENTER> At the subject prompt, press <ENTER> At the next blank screen, type the one-line message SUBSCRIBE and press <ENTER> Press the CTRL key and Z at the same time; your message is sent. Listserv Discussion Groups Log into the VAX Type MAIL at the $ prompt; press <ENTER> At the TO: prompt, type MX%"listserv@system.BITNET" Then press <ENTER> At the subject prompt, press <ENTER> At the next blank screen, type the one-line message SUBSCRIBE list your-real-name and press <ENTER> Press the CTRL key and Z at the same time; your message is sent.

What Happens Next At this point, the administrative program running on a computer called SYSTEM at a fictitious institution called COLLEGE will receive notice that the person

named your_real_name wishes to subscribe to a discussion group named LIST. You will begin to receive mail from the discussion group shortly thereafter. If you make an error, usually the administrative program will notify you. If you send e-mail directly to the forwarding address of the discussion group, your mail will be echoed to all the subscribers. If you reply to someone's posting to the list, your reply will go only to that person. To Unsubscribe from a Group Some discussion groups send out one or two pieces of e-mail each week, or even less; others circulate much more. If you receive intractable volumes of such mail, or find a discussion not to your liking, you can send the appropriate message which "unsubscribes" you from the service. Once you subscribe, you should always keep on file the instructions you need to unsubscribe to each service.

Exercise Subscribe to the discussion group set up for the planning phase of this Summer I nstitute. This group is running here at Kenyon. At the MAIL TO: prompt, type MX%"PEWGROUP-REQUEST@KENYON.EDU" You may leave the SUBJ line blank; simply press <ENTER> At the next blank screen, type the one-line message SUBSCRIBE Press CTRL and Z at the same time to send the message. In a few minutes, you will receive e-mail from the mailing list "server" here at Kenyon. Read this mail which is a welcoming message, with instructions on how to sign off this list. File this message in a mail folder named LISTS. After reading the welcoming mess age and at the MAIL> prompt, type FILE LISTS If a folder named LISTS doesn't exist in your mail files, answer Y (for yes) to create that folder. After everyone in the session has subscribed, send a message to the list. At th e MAIL TO: prompt, type MX%"PEWGROUP@KENYON.EDU" Note that this is the forwarding address, not the administrative address (which is MX%"PEWGROUP-REQUEST@KENYON.EDU").

Everyone in the session will begin to receive mail from other "discussants" in t his list; active mailing lists can generate large volumes of e-mail! Re-read the welcoming message that you filed in the LISTS folder, then try some of the other options for managing your participation in this list. Try sending the SET NOMAIL or REVIEW commands to the administrative address. Before you leave this session, please send to the administrative address the one -line command SIGNOFF so you are removed from this demonstration discussion gro up. Creating and Managing Internet Discussion Groups at Kenyon{2} Kenyon College has the software to support discussion groups managed by Kenyon f aculty and staff on behalf of all Internet users. This document explains the ba sic commands used to manage Internet discussion groups, and assumes familiarity with the introductory document, Internet Discussion Groups.

Creating a new discussion group Develop Name and Title Develop a name and short title for your discussion group. For example, for the fictitious discussion group named "POLIART", the descriptive title might be "Political expressions in the fine arts." Write Welcoming Statement Using the example provided in the example below, develop a welcoming statement which will be sent to each new subscriber automatically by the mailing list server. Set Up Kenyon Mailing List Server Contact ICS at PBX 5700 and request that the staff set up the Kenyon mailing list server to run your discussion group. You will be asked to provide the name, title and text of the welcoming message (preferably in electronic form as a plain text document). Configuration Options You will be asked to select from several options for configuring the discussion group, including: Subscribers can be added to the list automatically, or you can intercept the subscriptions and decide if they are qualified. The list can be set up so that only those who have subscribed can send messages to the list subscribers.

Managing a discussion group Responsibilities The manager of a discussion can have several responsibilities, largely depending on how much control one wishes to have over the discussion. The discussion manager can require that all postings go through him or her before they are sent out to the subscribers. Clearly this level of control can require a great deal of effort on the manager's part. Normally, the manager simply announces the existence of the list to colleagues then freely allows subscriptions and postings. If the discussion moves beyond the boundaries of the manager's intentions, the manager can post messages to facilitate the redirection of the discussion. In addition to the usual set of commands for participation in a discussion group, as listed below in the example, the manager has two other commands for adding and removing subscribers from the list. Only list managers have access to these two commands. To Add Members to the List To add members to the list, the manager sends a oneline message to the administrative address (the "listname-request" address) with the following syntax: ADD/option address [,another address, another address,...] There are several options for adding members to the list, the most important of which is the /NOCASE option. The /NOCASE option signifies that that mailing list is to ignore the case of the subscriber's address. Many systems on the Internet are case sensitive. If the manager adds an address in ignorance of the specific case requirements of the subscriber's home system, the subscriber may not receive mail nor will the subscriber be able to signoff of the list. Ordinarily, any subscriptions that the manager adds to the list should be added with the /NOCASE option. For example, ADD/NOCASE To Remove Members To remove members from the list, the manager should send a one-line message to the administrative address (the "listname-request" address) with the following syntax: REMOVE address [,another address,another address,...]

Archives Discussion groups can be configured by the VAX system manager so that all messages posted to the list are archived, normally by month, so they can be retrieved at a later date by any subscriber. Subscribers send messages via e-mail to the archive to retrieve archived materials. For example, for a discussion whose materials are archived by month, the archive files are named: LISTNAME.yyyy-mm For example, POLIART.1993-05 for all discussion materials sent out in May, 1993. To Retrieve Archives To retrieve archives for a particular month, send a message to LISTNAME-ARCHIVES@ADDRESS with the command SENDME LISTNAME.yyyy-mm To retrieve all months, send a message to LISTNAMEARCHIVES@ADDRESS with the command SENDME LISTNAME

Example An example of a detailed welcoming message, taken from a discussion group named SHELLFISH. Electronic copies of this message are available for editing; contact ICS for more information. Your subscription to the Internet discussion list "SHELLFISH" has been accepted. This is a forum for the discussion of: shellfish research in all scientific disciplines, shellfish industry worldwide, funding opportunities related to shellfish, employment in shellfish research and industry, meetings and conferences at all levels,

as well as any other topics that you, the participants in this discussion, deem suitable. The discussion will be as good as you make it! There are only two restrictions: the basic theme of the discussion is shellfish, and only active members of the National Shellfisheries Association can read or contribute to the discussion (all subscription requests are checked against the roster of active members).

You can participate in the discussion by sending electronic mail to the list itself. The Internet address for the discussion is SHELLFISH@KENYON.EDU When you send mail to this address, your mail is automatically sent out to all participants (subscribers) of the SHELLFISH list. If you see something in the discussion of interest, and you simply REPLY to the sender (rather than SEND mail to the list itself), your reply will go only to the sender of the original message. Some exceptions noted, but generally the discussions are far more interesting and self-sustaining if the participants send their contributions to the discussion list rather than to individuals. In this manner, all subscribers can follow the many threads of the discussion. You can manage your own subscription to this discussion list by sending one-line electronic mail messages to the "listserver." The Internet address for the listserver is SHELLFISH-REQUEST@KENYON.EDU The body of the text in each request message should consist of one or more of the following commands, one per line. Send your requests to the SHELLFISH-REQUEST address, not to the discussion itself (SHELLFISH). I strongly recommend that you retain a copy of this information so you are able to signoff (unsubscribe) from the list should you want to do so. The following commands can be handled automatically by SHELLFISH-REQUEST: SIGNOFF - to remove yourself from the list REVIEW - to get a list of subscribers QUERY - to get the status of your entry on the list SET NOMAIL - to remain on the list but not receive mail SET MAIL - to reverse the NOMAIL setting SET CONCEAL - to conceal yourself from REVIEW listings SET NOCONCEAL - to reverse the CONCEAL setting SET NOREPRO - to prevent the list from sending you your own postings SET REPRO - to reverse the NOREPRO setting LIST - to get a list of mailing lists available on this host HELP - to receive a help file Please send complaints, questions and comments about the list to the list moderator .......(name and address here) Usenet NEWS{3}

Usenet NEWS is a means of communications for people with common interests. The structure of Usenet NEWS is hierarchical. There are layers of newsgroups and me ssages. The top layer is the general directory of all newsgroups. Major Categories of Newsgroups There are several major categories of newsgroups: bit The bit groups are actually newsgroup links from existing Bitnet mailing lists. Many of the popular mailing lists such as the WordPerfect list are available. This provides an alternative to subscribing to a mailing list. comp Topics of interest to both computer professionals and hobbyists, including topics in computer science, software sources, and information on hardware and software systems. ieee The ieee groups are related to IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Most groups are technical although some discuss the activities of IEEE itself. fr The fr groups address French topics, in french. Kenyon This group concerns Kenyon College issues. The contents of this newsgroup does not circulate offcampus. misc Group addressing themes not easily classified into any of the other headings or which incorporate themes from multiple categories. subjects include fitness, jobhunting, law, and investments. sci Discussions marked by special knowledge relating to research in or application of the established sciences. soc Groups primarily addressing social issues and socializing. Included are discussions related to many different world cultures. talk Groups largely debate-oriented and tending to feature long discussions without resolution and without appreciable amounts of generally useful information.

news Groups concerned with the Usenet NEWS network, group maintenance, and software. rec Groups oriented towards hobbies and recreational activities. vmsnet Groups discussing VMS operating system issues and concerns.

Alternative Newsgroups There are two alternative hierarchies. Alternative newsgroups are not "officially" part of Usenet News and as such may be created by anyone. alt True anarchy: anything and everything can and does appear; subjects include sex, the Simpsons, and privacy. gnu Groups concentrating on interests and software with the GNU Project of the Free Software Foundation.

Subgroups Under the major topic groups, there are subgroups; for instance, under the topic of "rec", is the subtopic, "sports", and under that sub-subtopic are volley ball, baseball, football, etc. Under these sub-subtopics are the actual messages. To Start Usenet NEWS To access Usenet NEWS on the VAX at the $ prompt, type $ NETNEWS A list of the newsgroups and subgroups will appear on the screen. Moving around in the Newsgroups There are several ways to move up or down among the Newsgroups. Arrow Keys Use the arrow keys to move one line at a time.

Word Commands Type UP or DOWN to move the cursor one line at a time. Type TOP to get to the top of the list. Type BOTTOM to get to the bottom of the list. Type a Newsgroup number or a message number to jump down or up several groups or messages. Type SELECT groupname to jump to a selected group. For instance to go to the "" newsgroup, at the News> prompt, type News> SELECT Press the <Prev Screen> or <Next Screen> keys to move one screen at a time. To temporarily restrict the list of newsgroups to those in a selected hierarchy, at the News> prompt, type set class where is the name of the newsgroup, including the period (.). For example, News> SET CLASS SOC. restricts the view to all SOC. newsgroups. News> SET CLASS COMP.SYS. restricts the view to all comp.sys newsgroups. To restore your view to all newsgroups, at the News> prompt, type SET CLASS ALL

To Read a Message To read a message, press <RETURN> at the Newsgroup of your choice until you are reading a message. Responses to a message The responses you can make after reading a message are: Close or Dir If you type CLOSE, you will return to the list of groups in the same category. If you type CLOSE again, you will move up to the group above this category. Reply If you type REPLY, you will be in an editor and can reply to the person who sent the message.

Followup If you type FOLLOWUP, you will be in the editor and will reply to the whole group of people who read this thread of messages. A copy of the message to which you are responding will appear; you can edit or delete it. Post POST allows you to send a message not directly related to the message you have just read. Mail (or Forward) If you type MAIL, you can send the message to another person or to yourself, if you want to keep the message. After you have typed your message, press <CTRL Z> to send your message. Print Printing messages works the same as printing messages in MAIL. After you read a message, type PRINT/QUEUE=queuename to print a message. You can print selective messages by typing the numbers; for instance, PRINT/QUEUE=queuename 437-450 will print messages 437 to 450. They will not start to print until you exit Usenet NEWS. Help At the NEWS> prompt type HELP. The help provided is cryptic but may be useful. Extract EXTRACT places the message in a file created by the system, in a separate directory. The current file will be placed at the end of all previous extracts. Extract <filename> Extracts the whole text to a specified file in your current default directory; works the same as Mail EXTRACT. Menu To use the Usenet NEWS Menu, type MENU at the NEWS> prompt. Use the right arrow key to highlight each selection, and an explanation of what that selection is printed below the Menu line. To Stop Usenet NEWS To stop or exit Usenet NEWS, at the NEWS> prompt, type News> EXIT and the $ prompt will appear on the screen. Reducing the Number of Newsgroups and Starting Your Own Directory

You can select newsgroups so you don't have to sort through all 2,000 or more groups during subsequent Usenet sessions. In effect, you start a directory of "registered" groups and you can add to or delete from these "registered" groups at any time. When you start Usenet NEWS, a file called NEWSRC.;1 is created in your root directory. At the News> prompt, type DIR/ALL so that you will be at the directory of all newsgroups. Move your cursor keys up or down until you find a group you want to register. Type REGISTER and press return. To see the listing of groups you have registered, at the News> prompt, type DIR/REG (or press 6 on the keypad). To return to the overall listing, at the News> prompt type DIR/ALL . TO "unregister" a group, so it no displays in your directory of registered groups, type DEREGISTER . Netnews Exercise Exercise Log into the VAX and at the $ prompt, type NETNEWS Once the Netnews screen is displayed, at the NEWS> prompt, type SET CLASS ALT. (Don't forget to type the period) Using the arrow keys or the page up/page down keys, scroll through the ALT newsg roups. When you locate, the newsgroup KENYON.TEST, press <ENTER> to go into t hat newsgroup. Again scroll through the list of messages until you locate the message given to you by the session instructor. Note that you can type a specific message number at the NEWS> prompt and go dire ctly to that message, but that the numbers assigned each message change frequent ly. The title of the news item should indicate that it is a multipart item (for exam ple, 1/4 indicates part one of a four part message). With the proper news item highlighted, press <ENTER> once more to read that me ssage. The message is composed mostly of what appears to be scrambled text. This gibbe rish represents a graphic image (or part of one) that has been encoded so it can be passed over the Internet as a plain text file. You will now put this file, and any other files which represent parts of this image, into your home director y on the VAX.

At the NEWS> prompt, type EXTRACT GRAPHIC.TXT and press <ENTER>. In this ex ample, you extracted the Netnews item into a file named GRAPHIC.TXT You will no w transfer this file, which is still a plain text file, to the microcomputer at which you are working. This transfer will be done using Kermit. - Continued on next page At the VAX $ prompt, type KERMIT At the Kermit-32> prompt, type SET FILE TYPE ASCII and press <Enter> At the Kermit-32> prompt, type SERVER and press <Enter> Press and hold down the ALT key, then tap the C key; you should now have the MS-Kermit> prompt. At the MS-Kermit> prompt, type SET FILE TYPE TEXT and press <Enter> At the MS-Kermit> prompt, type SET DEFAULT C:\ and press <Enter> At the MS-Kermit> prompt, type GET GRAPHIC.TXT and press <Enter> The file will be transferred from the VAX to the microcomputer you are using. Once the transfer has completed, type FINISH and press <Enter> at the MS-Ker mit> prompt, then type CONNECT and press <Enter> at the MS-Kermit> prompt. At this point, you are reconnected to the VAX session. At the KERMIT-32> prompt, type EXIT and press <Enter>. You may log off the V AX normally at this time. Make certain you log off at the LOCAL> prompt as well as at the $ prompt. You will now decode the plain text file which you brought from Netnews to the VA X and then to your microcomputer. At the DOS C:\ prompt, type UUDECODE C:\GRAP HICS.TXT and press <Enter> The file C:\GRAPHICS.TXT will be decoded into the original graphics file. This converted file will be named according to its original name which was encoded i nto the file you downloaded. Once again, at the DOS C:\ prompt, type HOME and press <Enter> At the DOS C:\ prompt, type GIFPRT and press <Enter> to run the program whic h will allow you to view this graphic image. Kermit Instructions{4} To START your VAX Session Using a Microcomputer Start Kermit Turn on your microcomputer Type KERMIT and press <ENTER> Log onto VAX Type your USERNAME and press <ENTER>

Internet Mail{5} The global computer network, Internet, can be used by anyone with a computer acc ount at Kenyon. This document explains some Internet basics and the use of elec tronicInternet mail. What is the Internet? Internet The Internet is a global computer communications network which serves to interconnect many other networks, essentially as one. The students, faculty, and staff of Kenyon College have access to a wealth of resources through Kenyon's Internet connection. It is easy to communicate with any other Internet site from Kenyon. Access to hundreds of libraries, large repositories of free software, and ongoing e-mail discussions are just a few of the available resources. BITNET Another network, BITNET, and the Internet are not directly connected. It is important to note that Kenyon is NOT a BITNET site, but that it is possible to send e-mail to BITNET sites. This is done through a computer that is connected to both networks, an InterBit site. In correspondence with a BITNET site, you should indicate that your return address follows the Internet format. Internet Mail Internet Address Usually, Internet addresses are composed of a host name (for instance, KCVAX1, KCVAX2, OR KCVAX3) and a domain name (here, KENYON.EDU). At Kenyon, your Internet address is simplified; your username and the Kenyon domain make up your Internet mail address in the following format: username@KENYON.EDU If your username is Johnsona, your Internet mail address will be Johnsona@KENYON.EDU Sending Mail As with any mail, electronic or otherwise, you will need to know the address of the person you wish to contact. If you don't know a colleague's address, it is best to call or write that person and ask them. Once you know an address, you need to use the Internet mailer as a prefix to the Internet mail address. At the MAIL> prompt, type the SEND command (as you normally would) and respond to the TO: prompt with: MX%"username@host.domain"

where USERNAME is the username of the individual to whom you are sending mail, HOST is the name of the computer system which receives mail for that person, and DOMAIN is the specification for the Internet "location" of that system. For example, to send Internet mail to a user named SMITH on the Ohio State IBM machine, type the following at the TO: prompt: MX%"SMITH@OHIO-STATE.EDU" Privacy Internet mail is not private; it passes over the network much like a postcard travels through the mail. At times human intervention is required to move the mail along. In this and other cases the contents of your mail may be seen by someone other than the addressee. BITNET Mail Although Kenyon is NOT a BITNET site, our mailer is able to distinguish BITNET addresses as such and route them appropriately: MX%"username@node.BITNET" where USERNAME is the username of the individual to whom you are sending mail and NODE is the name of the BITNET node on which that person reads mail. Shortcuts You may simplify the task of typing in frequently used Internet addresses by setting up "logicals" in your LOGIN.COM file. If you are not familiar with the LOGIN.COM file or how to edit it, please refer to the ICS documentation on LOGIN.COM files (available in the Olin and Crawford computing centers). To assign the logical name BOB to an Internet address and JAN to a BITNET address, add the following lines to your LOGIN.COM file: $ DEFINE BOB "MX%""smith@ccmail.cunysb.EDU""" $ DEFINE JAN "MX%""smith@cyp.BITNET""" Finding Someone's Internet Address{6}

There are a number of ways to find a person's Internet address. In addition to a sking them, four of the most common ways are Netfind, WHOIS servers, "Finger"in g their account and sending e-mail to the institution's postmaster. Detailed de scriptions follow the exercise. Exercise Using Netfind, find an Internet address for ALTON SANDERS at MIAMI UNIVERSITY i n Ohio. The Telnet/log command will (1) allow you to log into a remote site and (2) pla

ce everything that appears on your screen in a file called TELNET.LOG, in your directory. Use lower case when you are using Telnet.

schwartz boulder colorado university The name can be a first, last, or login name, but only one name can be specified. The keys describe where the person works, by the name of the institution and/or the city/state/country. If you know the institution's domain name (e.g., "", where there are host names like "") you can specify it as keys without the dots (e.g., "cs colorado edu"). The host parts of domain names ("brazil") cannot be used as keywords. Keys are case insensitive and may be specified in any order, although using a very common key (like "university") first will cause internal buffers to overflow and some domains to be missed. Using more than one key implies the logical AND of the keys. Specifying too many keys may cause searches to fail. If this happens, try specifying fewer keys, e.g., schwartz boulder Searches proceed in two phases. In phase 1, Netfind performs a directed search into each selected domain, to try to uncover mail forwarding information, and "finger" the person being sought at hosts determined during this phase (see the algorithm description in the list of Frequently Asked Questions for more details). Phase 2 involves finger searches into other hosts, primarily those listed in the seed database. While you can interrupt Netfind at any time (with ^C), you should let it complete a pass through phase 2 if no mail forwarding information was found in phase 1, so that it can try to trace back through most recent/last login information for the person being sought. After each search phase (or when interrupted by ^C), Netfind summarizes the search results. If more than one person is located by a search, the summary does not include information about email targets and most recent/current logins (since only the user can decide which person was the correct one.) Use the information you get about the correct person to be more specific in your next search.

How WHOIS Servers Work{8} Not every Internet site supports whois servers, but they are worth checking out. There are two procedures for accessing the whois servers; the first looks for a general name, and may help you with the second, finding a specific person. To try the first, at the $ prompt, type whois <last_name_of_person> e.g., whois siddall You'll get a list of Siddalls on whois servers. The second method is more geared towards specifics. whois -h <server_name> <person's name> e.g., whois -h smith@magee.Edu

Usage The most common access approach involves separately querying each server of interest. However, there are currently a number of active projects concerned with improved interfaces to these servers, either by more intelligent client software, or by standardization of the server behavior. Server names There are currently three popular naming conventions for whois servers. The most common practice is to put whois service on a host as far up as possible in the organization's domain hierarchy. For example, the highest-level domain name associated with M.I.T. is MIT.EDU, and M.I.T.'s whois service is operated on the host named Another common practice is to choose 'whois' or 'wp' as the first part of the domain name ('wp' stands for "White Pages"). This would be the case if M.I.T.'s whois service were on a host named or In these cases, the listed name is often an alias, not the host's canonical name. In selecting the name to be listed, I've given preference to aliases starting with whois or wp. Access Restrictions In general, these servers should only be used for isolated queries about specific individuals of interest. Typically, it is not acceptable to make an extended series of queries in an attempt to obtain large sections, or the entirety, of the directory. Such a strategy is objectionable both because of excessive consumption of server resources, and because the directory itself is usually considered proprietary. In particular, deriving lists of persons

for distribution of commercial advertisements or solicitations is expressly prohibited by site policies in many cases, and could easily cause sites to curtail the current open access to their whois servers. How Finger Works{9} Finger is a user information lookup program that lists the login name, full name, office location and phone number (if known), login time, idle time, time mail was last read, and the contents of the .plan and .project files from the home directory of some users. The information listed varies from site to site, and not all sites allow remote fingering. To use finger, call finger as follows finger <username>@<domain> replacing <domain> with the name of the appropriate institution, and <username> with the name of the person or the person's login ID. For example, finger main@kenyon.Edu Fingering using last names or full names may work, depending on the site: finger margaret.Main@kenyon.Edu finger main@kenyon.Edu Some sites use an underscore (_) instead of a period (.) in the full name (e.g., Margaret_Main), or require an extra period to specify middle initials (Margaret.A.Main).

The Postmaster Option If all else fails, and you can't reach the person by telephone to ask their Internet address, you can send mail to the postmaster at the same institution. TO: RE: MX%"postmaster@person's_domain" Seeking user-id for <person's name here>

In the actual mail text, give any other information you know about the person--their department, etc. Some postmasters reserve the right not to reply to user-id inquiries, but many will respond with your answer. User's Guide to Mail{10} The purpose of this document is to provide a campus-wide guide for using the VAX Mail system. This manual covers the essential Mail commands with which you shou ld be familiar to use the Mail Utility.

What is Mail? Description of Mail The VAX/VMS Personal Mail Utility (Mail) is an electronic mail system that allows you to send messages to other users on the VAX system. You can also read, file, forward, delete, print, and reply to messages that other users send to you. Messages that you receive are stored in files called mail files, which have an extension of ".MAI". Your default mail file, called MAIL.MAI, is created in your main directory the first time you receive a mail message. Mail files (MAIL.MAI, for example) are protected so that only the owner can read them, and they may not be deleted accidentally. Mail Folders Mail allows you to organize your messages by storing them in "folders". By default, Mail provides three folders in your MAIL.MAI file in which messages are stored: MAIL, NEWMAIL, and WASTEBASKET. The MAIL folder always exists. It is created when you receive your first mail message. The NEWMAIL folder holds only the new mail messages before you read them. After you read a message, it is automatically moved from the NEWMAIL folder to the MAIL folder, and after you read the last new mail message, the NEWMAIL folder disappears. The WASTEBASKET folder is used to hold messages that you have deleted. The deleted messages remain in WASTEBASKET until you EXIT from Mail, at which time they are emptied from WASTEBASKET, and the WASTEBASKET folder disappears. The WASTEBASKET folder gives you a second chance to retrieve a message after it has been deleted from your MAIL folder, but once you EXIT Mail, any deleted messages are gone forever. Mail also allows you to create your own folders to organize your mail messages. For more detailed information on using user-created folders to organize mail messages, please refer to DEC's Mail Utility Reference Manual at the Olin ICS office. Following is a description of each Mail command.

To Start Mail To access Mail, type MAIL after the "$" prompt. Once you are in Mail, you will see displayed the "MAIL>" prompt which means the system is ready to receive a Mail command. The MAIL> prompt will reappear after each Mail command is executed, reminding you that you are still in Mail and that it is ready for the next Mail command. The MAIL> prompt disappears after you EXIT the Mail Utility. You may use the various Mail commands to move around within Mail.

To Stop Mail When you are ready to exit the Mail utility, at the MAIL> prompt type the word EXIT and press <RETURN> When you EXIT Mail, any messages which are marked for deletion will disappear, and any messages to be printed will enter the print queue. The EXIT command returns your process to the DCL level (the $ prompt). To Get Help To receive detailed information about Mail, type the word HELP at the MAIL> prompt. A list of Mail commands will be displayed. You can use this list to select a command about which you would like more information. To obtain information about all of the Mail commands, type HELP after the MAIL> prompt. If you already know the command name about which you want information, simply type HELP command name after the MAIL> prompt, as in: Mail> HELP REPLY This will give you a short description of the command and will offer an example to show how it is used. When you are ready to leave the HELP facility and return to the MAIL> prompt, just press <RETURN> To Use The Mail Directory Select If you wish to see a list of all new and old Mail messages in your MAIL folder in order to see a message on the screen again, first SELECT the MAIL folder and then get a DIRECTORY listing of the messages in the MAIL folder. Each message is given a number when it is received by MAIL; the messages are numbered in chronological order in the MAIL folder directory. Following is an example of how to access the MAIL folder directory and recall onto the screen an old mail message in that folder. Mail> SELECT MAIL Mail> DIRECTORY # From 1 STUDENT 2 STAFF 3 TEACHER Mail> READ 2 (selects the MAIL folder) (asks for a directory listing of MAIL folder) Date 1-JUN-1986 Subject How to Write a Memo

2-JUL-1986 Using the Printer 3-JUL-1986 Math Class Instructions

(displays message #2 on the screen)

Just as you can select the MAIL folder and get a directory listing of the messages in that folder (see above example), you can also select the NEWMAIL and

WASTEBASKET folders by first using SELECT NEWMAIL or SELECT WASTEBASKET and then getting a listing of their directories ( DIRECTORY command). If the NEWMAIL or WASTEBASKET folders have recently been emptied automatically, (after reading new mail messages or after exiting MAIL), these folders disappear. If you try to get a directory of messages in those folders at that time, a message will appear on your screen, telling you that they do not exist. Directory To get a directory listing of all the folders in your MAIL.MAI file, use the DIR/FOLDER command. This will list the default folders (MAIL and possibly NEWMAIL and WASTEBASKET) in your MAIL.MAI file, as well as any you have created yourself. If the NEWMAIL and/or WASTEBASKET folders are not listed when you use the DIR/FOLDER command, it means that they are empty and do not "exist".

To Send and Receive Mail The first part of this manual explained how to start and stop MAIL and how to get help in MAIL. It also discussed the organization of the default folders in the MAIL.MAI file and how to access messages in those folders. You are now ready to learn how to send mail messages and how to read messages that you receive from other users. To Send Mail The SEND command allows you to send a message to anyone on the system by typing their username at the "To:" prompt. The following example shows how to send a message to a user named SMITHC. MAIL> SEND To: SMITHC Subj: Class instructions After you respond to the header prompts above, you will see [EOB] at the top of the screen and you may type in your message. "EOB" is an abbreviation for End of Buffer meaning the temporary buffer in which your typing remains until you send the file. When you finish typing your message, press <PF1> E to send it. On a microcomputer, press <CTRL> Z . Your message will be sent immediately to the person whose username you entered. If that person is logged into the system, a message will appear on his/her screen that he/she has received new mail. If that person is not logged in, a similar message will appear at his/her next login. If you change your mind about sending the message, you can type <PF1> Q which will abort it. On a microcomputer, press <CTRL> Y . The message will not be sent and you will be

returned to the MAIL> prompt. To Send a Text File There may be an occasion when you will want to send a complete file located in your main directory to another user. The command for this is just a bit different; adding the file name at the end of the command, as in the following example: Mail> SEND CLASSNOTES.TXT You can edit this file or add on a note to the receiver at the beginning of it before you send it. Again, <PF1> E will send it, while <PF1> Q will abort it. To Send a WordPerfect File Mail messages are transferred in "text" format. If you want to send a file which has a "non-text" format such as WordPerfect format, use a different command. For instance, to send a WordPerfect file to another person, use the following command: Mail> SEND/FOREIGN/NOEDIT filename The person who receives this message will have to use the EXTRACT command to extract the file for editing or viewing in WordPerfect. This command works only on the Kenyon computers; it is not intended for Internet use. To Read Mail If another user on the system sends you a Mail message, a message will appear on your screen if you are logged into the system at the time. If you are not logged in, a message notifying you that you have new mail will appear at your next login. To be able to read that message, start Mail and at the MAIL> prompt, enter READ . If you are in the Mail utility when you are notified about a message, use the READ/NEW command to read the new Mail message. After a message is read the first time, it is transferred out of the NEWMAIL folder and stored in the MAIL folder. To display it on the screen so that you can read it again, use the READ command followed by its message number. If you don't know the number of your message, remember that you can get a listing of all your messages and their numbers in the MAIL folder directory DIRECTORY . The messages are numbered in chronological order (See Mail Directory section above). Mail> READ 3 (This brings mail message #3 back onto the screen for reading.) In addition to using message numbers to display

particular messages, you can use the following forms of the READ command to read the first, last, previous, next, or current message over again: MAIL> FIRST MAIL> LAST MAIL> NEXT MAIL> BACK the screen) (reads the first message in current folder) (reads last message in current folder) (reads the message after the one that is currently on the screen) (reads the message before the one that is currently on

MAIL> CURRENT (brings you back to beginning of a long mail message in order to read it again) To Reply to Sender When you receive a message and want to reply to the original sender, use the REPLY command. REPLY allows you to send a message to the sender of the message you are currently reading (the one displayed on the screen). You may REPLY to a message only if the message is currently displayed on the screen with the READ command. Mail will display the header of your REPLY message as follows: Mail> REPLY To: JONES (username of the original sender) Subj. Re: Class instructions (This reflects the subject in the header of the original sender's message) After the header appears, type in your message. When you are finished, press <PF1> E or <CTRL> Z to send the message. If you change your mind about replying to the message after you have already entered the REPLY command, type <PF1> Q or <CTRL> Y to abort the message. The MAIL> prompt will reappear on the screen. If you would like to include a copy of the original message in your reply, use the command: REPLY/EXTRACT To Forward a Message You may send a copy of the message you are currently reading or have just read to a user or users. Again, you can FORWARD a message only if that message is currently displayed on the screen with the READ command. Mail will prompt you (1) for the name of the user(s) to whom you want to FORWARD the message and (2) for a subject. For example: Mail> Read 3 (Displays message #3 on screen) Mail> FORWARD/NOHEADER To: SMITHC

Subj: <Subject of message> You can use the /NOHEADER qualifier after FORWARD to eliminate the header information from the forwarded message. If you change your mind about forwarding a message after you have already typed the FORWARD command, press <PF1> Q or <CTRL> Y to abort the message. The MAIL> prompt will be displayed again. To Send Messages to A Group Of People If you frequently send mail to the same group of people, you will find it helpful to use a "distribution list". A distribution list is a file containing the names of users to whom you want to send messages. To set up a distribution list, use the Kenyon text editor KEDT to create a distribution list file with the file type ".DIS". Please note that the filename MUST have a .DIS extension. KEDT is the same text editor that you use when writing a MAIL message. Type one username per line in this file. A distribution list can also include the names of other distribution lists. You can include comments by entering lines whose first character is an exclamation point (!). The following example shows how to create a distribution list: $ KEDT STUDENT.DIS (Then type into your newly created file, one username per line) Jones Smith French Cory ! NESTED DISTRIBUTION LIST: MATH21.DIS Separate usernames can be combined with another distribution list (MATH21.DIS) as long as the distribution list is the last entry, as in the example above. MATH21.DIS could contain another distribution list. Now that you have a distribution list file created, you can send your message to all the users in that list by first issuing the SEND command. In response to the "To:" prompt, type in the name of the distribution list file you have just created (STUDENT.DIS), preceded by the @ symbol. Mail> SEND To: @STUDENT Mail will deliver one copy of your mail message to each user in your distribution list. Typing in the .DIS is not necessary. The computer assumes you used the .DIS extension in your filename.

To Manage Mail Messages Now that you have learned about various ways to send and receive mail messages, you are ready to learn other ways in which those messages can be managed. Some of the things that will be discussed are extracting a message (moving it to a file in your VAX directory) and printing it in order to have a hard copy of it. A section is also included on "cleaning up" your Mail files by deleting messages no longer useful and then compressing the file. You will also learn how to search through your messages for a specific topic and how to include your personal name in any mail messages that you send to others. The last section discusses the COPY and MOVE commands that allow you to create additional folders and mail files other than the default ones, so that you may move messages into them to organize your mail messages. To Move Messages To Another Directory If you want to move a mail message from MAIL to a file in another directory, use the EXTRACT command. After the MAIL> prompt, while the message you wish to EXTRACT is displayed on the screen, use the EXTRACT command. When you exit from MAIL, that file will be listed in the directory you chose when you named the file. An example: Mail> READ 4 (Displays message #4 on the screen)

Mail> EXTRACT/NOHEADER BIODATA.TXT %MAIL-I-CREATED, B:[SMITH]BIODATA.TXT;1 created (Saves message #4 as BIODATA.TXT) Mail> EXIT $ DIRECTORY Directory B:[SMITH] BIODATA.TXT;1 26 4-NOV-1992 14:40 [SMITH] (RWED,RWED,,) The EXTRACT command can be used only when the message you wish to EXTRACT is currently displayed on the screen. You can use the /NOHEADER qualifier after the EXTRACT command to eliminate the address header information from the extracted message. The EXTRACT command allows you to store the message in your chosen directory so that it can be manipulated (copied, printed, renamed, deleted, or edited) like any other file. To print a file that was extracted from Mail and placed in your current directory, you can use the

PRINT command, as in: $ PRINT/QUEUE=OLN1L210 BIODATA.TXT where OLN1L210 is the queuename and BIODATA.TXT is the filename. To Extract WordPerfect and other Non-text Files If you try to read a mail message and see a message which says you cannot read this foreign format message, use the EXTRACT filename command to copy the file to a directory. You may use any filename you wish. For example, Mail> EXTRACT ANYFILENAME To Print Mail While you are using Mail, you can make a hardcopy of a mail message you are currently reading or have just read by using the PRINT/QUEUE=queuename command. You can PRINT a message in Mail only if it is currently displayed on the screen. At the $ prompt, before starting Mail, type SHOW QUEUE to find out the name of the queue nearest your location. The file(s) created by the PRINT command are not actually released to the print queue until you exit Mail. If you issue multiple PRINT commands while in Mail, the messages you want to print will be combined into one print job and will be printed off as one file. The example below illustrates how the PRINT command takes effect only after you exit Mail. Notice that there is only one "job" or file being printed, the two messages having been combined into one print request. Each message uses at least one full sheet of paper; print only what is absolutely necessary. MAIL> READ 5 (Mail message #5 is displayed on screen)

MAIL> PRINT/QUEUE=queuename MAIL> READ 6 MAIL> PRINT/QUEUE=queuename MAIL> EXIT Job MAIL (queue OLIN$PRINT, entry 210) started on OLN1L210 $

To Delete Mail Messages You may remove any message that is no longer useful to you by using the DELETE command while in MAIL. If the message you want to delete is currently displayed on the screen, use the DELETE command alone, as in:

MAIL> DELETE To delete a message that is not displayed on the screen, find out its message number (use the SELECT and DIRECTORY commands), and then type the DELETE command followed by the message number. For example, to remove message #2 in the MAIL folder, type: MAIL> SELECT MAIL MAIL> DELETE 2 MAIL> DELETE 3-8,11

(deletes messages 3 through 8, and 11)

If you enter the DIRECTORY command immediately after you have deleted a message (or messages), you will see the message(s) marked as deleted, as the following example shows: MAIL> DIRECTORY # From 1 JONES 2 (Deleted) 3 SMITH 4 (Deleted) Date Subject 1-JUN-1986 How to Write a Memo 4-JUN-1986 Class Instructions

As messages are deleted from your MAIL folder, they are automatically moved to your WASTEBASKET folder, as mentioned earlier. This gives you another chance to retrieve a message if you delete it by mistake. However, as soon as you EXIT from Mail, those messages in your WASTEBASKET folder will disappear forever! If for some reason you do not wish to have the deleted messages in WASTEBASKET disappear when you leave MAIL, you can type QUIT instead of EXIT at the MAIL> prompt. This will allow you to leave Mail but will keep the WASTEBASKET messages intact. To Retrieve a Message from the Wastebasket You may retrieve a message from WASTEBASKET and move it back to your MAIL folder by doing the following. First, find out its message number in the WASTEBASKET folder and call up that message onto the screen. For example, MAIL> SELECT WASTEBASKET MAIL> DIRECTORY(displays message list so that you can look for the message number) MAIL> READ 3(displays message #3 on screen) Then: MAIL> MOVE MAIL(Moves the message to your MAIL folder) You may use the SELECT MAIL and DIRECTORY commands to check that the message now resides in the MAIL folder. Your mail file (with the .MAI file extension in your directory) is protected so that only you can read it, and you may not delete it even if you try. You may only delete mail MESSAGES from your MAIL folder while

you are in Mail. To Compress the MAIL file The COMPRESS command is used to make the MAIL file smaller. Even though you may periodically "clean out" your MAIL folder(s) by deleting messages that are no longer useful to you, the size of your MAIL file is not decreased simply by deleting those messages. This is because the area where they were stored is left intact, although you cannot access those deleted messages anymore. The VAX System Manager compresses your mail files once a week; however, you may want to compress your file during the week. You may keep track of how large the MAIL file is becoming by watching the block size of the MAIL.MAI file in your directory. When the block size of the MAIL.MAI file approaches 50, it is time to delete unneeded messages and compress the file. If you do not, you will run into problems exceeding your disk quota because of it. If that should happen, call the ICS HelpLine at 5700 for assistance. When you compress a file, the following four steps occur: A temporary file named MAILnnnnCOMPRESS.TMP is created. (where nnnn is the number of the temporary file) The contents (of the MAIL.MAI file to be compressed) are copied to the temporary file and compressed. The original MAIL.MAI (uncompressed) file is renamed with a file type of OLD. The newly compressed file is renamed from MAILnnnnCOMPRESS.TMP back to its original name (MAIL.MAI). The following example shows what appears on the screen when your MAIL file is compressed: $ MAIL Mail> COMPRESS %MAIL-S-CREATED,B:[SMITH]MAIL_08C8_COMPRESS.TMP;1 created %MAIL-S-COPIED, B:[25_777]MAIL.MAI;1 copied to B:[25_777]MAIL_08C8_COMPRESS.TMP;1 (2 records) %MAIL-S-RENAMED, B:[25_777]MAIL.MAI;1 renamed to B:[25_777] MAIL.OLD;2 %MAIL-S-RENAMED, B:[25_777]MAIL_08C8_COMPRESS.TMP;1 renamed to B:[25_777]MAIL.MAI;1 To Delete MAIL.OLD File This leaves you with a new MAIL.MAI file that contains all your remaining messages that have not been deleted; the useless storage spaces have been removed

from this file. After you have compressed your MAIL file, make sure you are working in your main directory. Type DIRECTORY to make sure your MAIL.OLD file is there. It contains the original uncompressed Mail message file. Since the MAIL.MAI file is the newly compressed version that will receive any new MAIL messages sent to you, MAIL.OLD should not be kept. To delete the MAIL.OLD file, use the DELETE command at the "$" prompt. For example, $ DELETE MAIL.OLD;1 The MAIL.OLD file will be removed from your main directory. The COMPRESS command can be used on ANY mail files that you may create, in addition to the default MAIL.MAI file. If your Mail files are kept in a subdirectory of your main directory, type: $ DELETE [.MAIL]MAIL.OLD;* To Search Your Mail Messages To find the message(s) in your MAIL folder which contain(s) a specific word or phrase, use the SEARCH command to find it. Type SEARCH after the MAIL> prompt, followed by the word or phrase (text string) you want to find. The SEARCH text string command starts to search at the beginning of the messages in your current folder. It will stop at the message containing the FIRST occurrence of that text string. If there is another message in that folder that contains that same text string, find it by typing SEARCH (no text string after it) after the MAIL> prompt. This is essentially a "search again" command, since it searches for the previously specified text string, starting with the message FOLLOWING the one currently on the screen. It is possible to continue with the SEARCH command until the last of your messages is reached. For example, Mail> SELECT MAIL (selects the MAIL folder)

Mail> SEARCH budget expenditures (The first message containing the phrase "budget expenditures" appears on the screen). Mail> SEARCH (searches for the next messagecontaining the specified text string. This SEARCH begins with the message following the current one.) (The second message containing the phrase "budget expenditures" appears on the screen). The SEARCH command enables you to find certain topics discussed in your mail messages without having to read through each message. Long mail messages

When you receive a mail message that is larger than 3 blocks, it is written to a new Mail (.MAI) file, different from the MAIL.MAI file previously discussed. This large Mail file will be listed in your mail directory as follows: MAIL$nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.MAI where nnnnnnnnnnnnn is a number the computer gives the filename. MAIL deletes these large .MAI files from your mail directory when you delete these messages from within MAIL. You cannot delete these files outside of Mail without changing the protection code; however, if you do delete these files outside of MAIL (with the DELETE command), and then try to read the associated messages inside of Mail, you will get an error message followed by a display of the From:, To:, and Subject: fields. Therefore, delete these large messages only from within Mail, not the MAIL$nnnnnnnnnnn.MAI file itself. To Get Personal The SET PERSONAL_NAME command enables you to append personal information to the end of the "From:" field of mail messages you send. You can fill this field with your full name or other information. Thus, the receiver of your messages can more easily identify you, instead of having to remember your username (JONES, for example). MAIL> SET PERSONAL_NAME "Buddy Jones" or MAIL> SET PERSONAL_NAME "Jim Stephens, pbx 5317" The text string must begin with either a letter or digit; the length of the text string cannot exceed 127 characters. If you do not enclose the text string in quotation marks, it prints out in all uppercase letters. To "Carbon Copy" a message to another User You can send a carbon copy of a message to another user by setting your mail system to prompt you for the username of the person to whom you wish to send the copy. MAIL> SET CC_PROMPT When you send a message, the following will be displayed: MAIL> SEND To: SMITH CC: JONES

Subj: SEMINAR ON FRIDAY To disable the CC_PROMPT, at the MAIL> prompt, type SET NOCC_PROMPT

To Use Folders To Organize Mail Messages You can create folders in mail in which to store your messages. Your default MAIL.MAI file already contains the NEWMAIL, MAIL, and WASTEBASKET folders. You can create new folders in your MAIL.MAI file or you can create other mail files besides MAIL.MAI, as well as other folders in those Mail files. COPY and MOVE The commands COPY and MOVE will transfer Mail messages to another folder in your current file or to another folder in another Mail file. If the folder or Mail file you specify to transfer the message to does not yet exist, you will be asked whether you want to create it; if you respond with Y , the specified folder is created by the COPY or MOVE command as it transfers the message. (The difference between the COPY command and the MOVE command is that the MOVE command deletes the message from the original folder, while the COPY command leaves a copy there. To COPY or MOVE a message to another folder in your CURRENT mail file, do the following: Mail> READ 2 the screen) Mail> COPY (or MOVE) (displays message from current folder on

_Folder: class_instructions(this transfers message to the specifiedfolder; if it does not exist, you be asked if you want to create it;

will answer Y) file

_File: <RETURN>(If you omit a filename and simply press <RETURN> the message will be copied to a folder in your current mail ) Once the message has been COPYed or MOVEd, you should check the folder to which it has been transferred to make sure it is there: Mail> SELECT foldername(folder to which you transferred your message) Mail> DIRECTORY(message you just transferred should be listed in this folder directory) To COPY or MOVE a message to another folder in a mail file other than your current one, do the following: Mail> READ 3 Mail> COPY (or MOVE) _Folder: SOCCER(specify the folder to which you want your message will be transferred; if it does not exist, you will be asked (displays message you want to transfer)

if you

wish to create it, as above answer Y ) _File: SPORTS (specify the Mail file, other than the current one, to which you want your message transferred; if it does no t exist, you will be asked if you wish to create one; answe r Y , as above)

To Access A Mail File other than MAIL.MAI Once the message has been COPYed or MOVEd, check the file and folder to which it has been transferred to make sure it is actually there. To do this, use the SET FILE command, which transfers you to a Mail file other than your current one. Once you are in the Mail file, SELECT the folder in that file to which the message was copied or moved, and then get a DIRECTORY listing of the folder's contents to check that the message is listed there. For example, MAIL> SET FILE SPORTS(Transfers you to the specified Mail file (SPORTS.MAI) where your message was sent) MAIL> DIR/FOLDER (Lists the folders in the SPORTS.MAI file, where you now are; the SOCCER folder should be there.) MAIL> SELECT SOCCER(Selects the SOCCER folder in the SPORTS.MAI file) MAIL> DIR(Lists messages in the SOCCER folder; your newly transferred message should be there) Mail> SET FILE MAIL(transfers you back to your default MAIL.MAI file) Folder names or Mail file names can be from 1 to 39 characters in length. Valid characters for folder names are all alphanumeric characters, the dollar sign ($), and the underscore (__). If you enter the COPY or MOVE command, supply a foldername at the prompt, and then decide (before pressing <RETURN> again) that you do not want to copy the message, press the <CTRL> C key combination. <CTRL> C will abort the operation and maintain the MAIL> prompt. Additional Information After reading through this manual, you should be familiar enough with the various Mail commands so that you can now send, receive, organize, and maintain your mail messages efficiently.

The Net User Guidelines and Netiquette{11}

Preface The formulation of this guide was motivated by a need to develop

guidelines for all Internet protocols to ensure that users at Florida Atlantic University realize the Internet capabilities as a resource available, with the provision that they are responsible in how they access or transmit information through the Internet (The Net). It is assumed that the reader has some familiarization with the terms and protocols that are referenced in this document. Permission to duplicate or distribute this document is granted with the provision that the document remains intact. For additions, comments, suggestions and requests for revisions, please send E-mail to RINALDI@ACC.FAU.EDU. Acknowledgements Much of this guide was developed from comments and suggestions from NETTRAIN@UBVM (formally NET-TRAIN) LISTSERV subscribers and from several sources available on The Net: A special acknowledgment to Wes Morgan, University of Kentucky Engineering Computing Center, for his advice and recommendations.

Introduction It is essential for each user on the network to recognize his/her responsibility in having access to vast services, sites, systems and people. The user is ultimately responsible for his/her actions in accessing network services. The "Internet" or "The Net", is not a single network; rather, it is a group of thousands of individual networks which have chosen to allow traffic to pass among them. The traffic sent out to the Internet may actually traverse several different networks before it reaches its destination. Therefore, users involved in this internetworking must be aware of the load placed on other participating networks. As a user of the network, you may be allowed to access other networks (and/or the computer systems attached to those networks). Each network or system has its own set of policies and procedures. Actions which are routinely allowed on one network/system may be controlled, or even forbidden, on other networks. It is the users responsibility to abide by the policies and procedures of these other networks/systems. Remember, the fact that a user can perform a particular action does not imply that they should take that action.

The use of the network is a privilege, not a right, which may temporarily be revoked at any time for abusive conduct. Such conduct would include, the placing of unlawful information on a system, the use of abusive or otherwise objectionable language in either public or private messages, the sending of messages that are likely to result in the loss of recipients' work or systems, the sending of "Chain letters," or "broadcast" messages to lists or individuals, and any other types of use which would cause congestion of the networks or otherwise interfere with the work of others.. Permanent revocations can result from disciplinary actions taken by a panel judiciary board called upon to investigate network abuses. Electronic Mail and Files User Responsibility E-Mail The content and maintenance of a user's electronic mailbox is the users responsibility: Check E-mail daily and remain within your limited disk quota. Delete unwanted messages immediately since they take up disk storage. Keep messages remaining in your electronic mailbox to a minimum. Mail messages can be downloaded or extracted to files then to disks for future reference. Never assume that your E-mail can be read by no one except yourself; others may be able to read or access your mail. Never send or keep anything that you would not mind seeing on the evening news.

Disk Storage The content and maintenance of a user's disk storage area is the users responsibility: Keep files to a minimum. Files should be downloaded to your personal computer's hard drive or to disks. Routinely and frequently virus scan your system, especially when receiving or downloading files from other systems to prevent the spread of a virus. Your files may be accessible by persons with system privileges, so do not maintain anything private in your disk storage area. Telnet Protocol Many telnetable services have documentation files available online (or via ftp). Download and review instructions locally as opposed to tying up ports trying to figure out the system. Be courteous to other users wishing to seek information or

the institution might revoke Telnet access; remain only on the system long enough to get your information, then exit off of the system. Screen captured data or information should be downloaded to your personal computer's hard disk or to disks. Anonymous FTP - File Transfer Protocol Users should respond to the PASSWORD prompt with their E-mail address, so if that site chooses, it can track the level of FTP usage. If your E-mail address causes an error, enter GUEST for the next PASSWORD prompt. When possible limit downloads, especially large downloads (1 Meg+), for after normal business hours locally and for the remote ftp host; preferably late in the evening. Adhere to time restrictions as requested by archive sites. Think in terms of the current time at the site that's being visited, not of local time. Copy downloaded files to your personal computer hard drive or disks to remain within disk quota. When possible, inquiries to Archie should be in mail form. It's the user's responsibility when downloading programs, to check for copyright or licensing agreements. If the program is beneficial to your use, pay any authors registration fee. If there is any doubt, don't copy it; there have been many occasions on which copyrighted software has found its way into ftp archives. Support for any downloaded programs should be requested from the originator of the application. Remove unwanted programs from your systems. Electronic Communications (E-mail, LISTSERV groups, Mailing lists, and Usenet) Keep paragraphs and messages short and to the point. Focus on one subject per message. Be professional and careful what you say about others. E-mail is easily forwarded. Cite all quotes, references and sources. Limit line length and avoid control characters. Follow chain of command procedures for corresponding with superiors. For example, don't send a complaint via E-mail directly to the "top" just because you can. Don't use the academic networks for commercial or proprietary work. Include your signature at the bottom of E-mail messages. Your

signature footer should include your name, position, affiliation and Internet and/or BITNET addresses and should not exceed more than 4 lines. Optional information could include your address and phone number. Capitalize words only to highlight an important point or to distinguish a title or heading. *Asterisks* surrounding a word also can be used to make a stronger point. Use discretion when forwarding mail to group addresses or distribution lists. It's preferable to reference the source of a document and provide instructions on how to obtain a copy. It is considered extremely rude to forward personal email to mailing lists or Usenet without the original author's permission. Be careful when using sarcasm and humor. Without face to face communications your joke may be viewed as criticism. Respect copyright and license agreements. When quoting another person, edit out whatever isn't directly applicable to your reply. Including the entire article will annoy those reading it. Abbreviate when possible: Examples: IMHO FYI BTW Flame :-) = = = = = in my humble/honest opinion for your information by the way antagonistic criticism happy face for humor

Listserv and Mailing List Discussion Groups Some mailing lists have low rates of traffic, others can flood your mailbox with several hundred mail messages per day. Numerous incoming messages from various listservers or mailing lists by multiple users, requires extensive system processing which can tie up valuable resources. Subscription to Interest Groups or Discussion Lists should be kept to a minimum and should not exceed what your disk quota can handle, or you for that matter. Keep your questions and comments relevant to the focus of the discussion group. Resist the temptation to "flame" others on the list. Remember that these discussions are "public" and meant for constructive exchanges. Treat the others on the list as you would want them to treat you. When posting a question to the discussion group, request that responses be directed to you personally. Post a summary or answer to your question to the group. When replying to a message posted to a discussion group, check the address to be certain it's going to the intended

location (person or group). When signing up for a group, save your subscription confirmation letter for reference. When going away for more than a week, unsubscribe or suspend mail from any mailing lists or LISTSERV services. If you can respond to someone else's question, do so through email. Twenty people answering the same question on a large list can fill your mailbox (and those of everyone else on the list) quickly. Use your own personal E-mail account, don't subscribe using a shared office account. Occasionally subscribers to the list who are not familiar with proper netiquette will submit requests to SUBSCRIBE or UNSUBSCRIBE directly to the list itself. Be tolerant of this activity, and possibly provide some useful advice as opposed to being critical. Other people on the list are not interested in your desire to be added or deleted. Any requests regarding administrative tasks such as being added or removed from a list should be made to the appropriate area, not the list itself. Mail for these types of requests should be sent to the following respectively: LISTSERV GROUPS MAILING LISTS - LISTSERV@host listname-REQUEST@host or listname-OWNER@host

For either Mailing Lists or LISTSERV groups, to subscribe or unsubscribe, in the body of the message include: SUBSCRIBE listname yourfirstname yourlastname or UNSUBSCRIBE listname The Ten Commandments for Computer Ethics from the Computer Ethics Institute 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Thou shalt not use a computer to harm other people. Thou shalt not interfere with other people's computer work. Thou shalt not snoop around in other people's files. Thou shalt not use a computer to steal. Thou shalt not use a computer to bear false witness. Thou shalt not use or copy software for which you have not paid. 7. Thou shalt not use other people's computer resources without authorization. 8. Thou shalt not appropriate other people's intellectual output. 9. Thou shalt think about the social consequences of the program you write.

10. Thou shalt use a computer in ways that show consideration and respect. VAXNotes{12}

VAXNotes is a program available to all users that manages electronic discussions called "conferences." Conferences, are subdivided into "topics." In each topic there are "messages" and "replies" to the messages. When you use VAXNotes, you access a public forum in which discussions on particular subjects can be held. To Start VAXNotes Create Notebook File To start VAXNotes, at the $ prompt type $ NOTES This creates in your directory a "notebook" file called NOTES$NOTEBOOK.NOTE which contains a list of all the conferences you wish to access. The VAXNotes prompt is Notes>. Set Editor The first time you use VAXNotes, set your Editor type to KEDT (You only have to do this once). Notes> SET PROFILE/EDITOR=(@KCUT:NOTESKEDT.COM,SPAWN) List of Conferences The command DIRECTORY/CONFERENCES KENYON:: will show what public conferences are on the system. You must be invited to participate in a private conference by the conference moderator. Add a Conference Entry To read the notes in a conference, its name must be added to your notebook. The command Notes> ADD ENTRY KENYON::conferencename will add a selected conference to your notebook. Add a specific conference name only once. Delete Conference Entry To delete a conference from your notebook, type Notes> DELETE ENTRY conferencename Note: If you are unable to open a conference, possibly it needs to be added again. You must delete the conference before you can add it again. Open Conference Once the conference has been added to your notebook, access the

conference by typing Notes> OPEN conferencename Help Remember that help menus program. When you press microcomputer, press the access the VAXNotes Help

are available from anywhere within the the <HELP> key or <PF2> (on a F2 key) the KEDT Help menu will appear; to menu directly, type HELP

To Read Notes Reading conference notes is much like reading mail; you can use commands such as First, Last, Next when you are reading topics in VAXNotes. List of Topics To read a note, first display a list of the topics after you have opened the conference. At the Notes> prompt, type DIRECTORY . Topics are listed numerically. To see a list of the topics AND the replies, type DIR *.* . So topic 2, for example, might have replies 2.1 and 2.2 . To Read a Note Typing the number of a particular topic will display it so that you can read it. Replies are listed under their topics, and can be displayed in the same way. For example, to read the third reply to the fourth topic, type 4.3 . To Write Notes Remember that anything added to a VAXNotes conference is readable by any other user. Every one who uses VAXNotes is responsible for ensuring that the notes stored remain relevant to their subjects and keep proper system etiquette. If there are any questions, consult the help menus or the ICS staff. Add New Topic In VAXNotes it is possible to add new topics to existing conferences, OR write replies to existing topics. To add a new topic to a conference, use the command Notes> WRITE You are now using KEDT and the key definitions are those of KEDT. After you have written your note, VAXNotes will ask for a title for the topic. The topic should be short and descriptive. The body of the topic itself can be as long as you wish. The same is true for replies. Reply to a Topic To write a reply to a topic or a reply that already exists, that particular note must be on the screen. To reply, use the command Notes> REPLY

You can reply to the main topic note or you can reply to replies. They are treated the same. To Include a Text File in a Note or Reply To include a text file (for instance, a mail file which has been extracted) in a note or reply, press <PF1> I and type in the name of the file.

To Delete a Note You can only delete notes which you have written. To delete a note, type DIR *.* and determine its exact number. To delete note 4.2, for example, type Notes> DELETE NOTE 4.2

To Print And Save Notes To Print Note(s) VAXNotes allows notes to be sent to printers. To print the note that is on the screen, type Notes> PRINT/QUEUE=queuename For example, the quename of the dot-matrix printers in Olin are called OLN1L210 and OLN2L210. The printing will not start until you exit VAXNotes, at which point all the notes selected will be queued for printing. Print Multiple Messages To print several messages, type the number of the messages after the print command. For instance, to print notes 1 to 5, type Notes> PRINT/QUEUE=queuename 1-5 Save a note to a file Notes in public conferences are stored outside of your account, not in the notebook file in your account. To copy a note into your current default directory as a text file called "filename", use the command Notes> SAVE filename Both the save and print commands can be amended so that many notes can be specified at once. The EXTRACT command works the same as the SAVE command. Substitute the word EXTRACT for the word SAVE. It is possible, for example, to print all the notes from a certain time period, or save all the notes from a certain person. For more information on how to do this, type Notes> HELP SPECIFYING_NOTES Here are some examples of specifying messages:

Notes> EXTRACT BUDGET 10.*(Saves topic number 10 and all the replies to it in a file called BUDGET.TXT) Notes> SAVE /KEYWORD=Dartmouth *.* (Saves all notes in the conference that have the keyword DARTMOUTH and stores the notes in a file called COLLEGES.INFO) Notes> EXTRACT/AUTHOR=Jones/KEYWORD=Meetings Jones.sch 3-25 (Extracts topics from topic 3 through 25 that were written by user Jones and refer to meetings. The notes are stored in a file called JONES.SCH) Remember, the EXTRACT and SAVE commands do the same thing. To Stop VAXNotes Close Conference To exit VAXNotes, first close the conference you are reading and then exit VAXNotes. Notes> CLOSE conferencename Exit VAXNotes and then exit VAXNotes. Notes> Exit

To Create a VAXNotes Conference Following are instructions about how you may create a conference yourself. Moderator Every conference has a moderator. The moderator creates a conference, manages the notes in a conference, and manages who can read and/or write to a conference. The moderator will be in charge of encouraging people to participate in the conference and guiding the flow of the discussion. Moderator Commands For more information about moderating a conference, at the Notes> prompt, type HELP MODERATOR and then HELP command phrase, for example, HELP add member . When a Conference is Created... Notes are stored on the system as they are created by participants in the conference. When you first create a conference, the conference notes will be stored in the root directory of your VAX account. To get your conference to show on the KENYON:: list, create your conference, then contact ICS at PBX 5700 and request that notes for your conference be relocated to public disk space. Please allow two or three days for the relocation of the conference file. If you wish to leave the conference file in your root directory, you

must have extensive knowledge about file protection and allowing others to access files in your root directory. ICS reserves the right to refuse public disk space to conferences whose nature violates College policies (e.g., harassment). The Create Command All conferences are first created in the moderator's private account by typing Notes> CREATE CONFERENCE SYS$LOGIN:conferencename SYS$LOGIN is an alias for your default directory and conferencename is the name of the conference you wish to create. When a conference is first created, it is accessible to all users, i.e., it is a "public" conference. At any time in the process, you can make the conference " private" by restricting it to a specific set of users. It is the responsibility of the conference owner to manage the list of users to whom access is granted. The program will ask for a title for the conference which should be a short description of its intended scope and a longer description which will be shown to anybody opening the conference later. To Create a Restricted Conference Create a conference and ask to have it placed in public space as instructed above. Open your conference and then do the following: Put yourself in "moderator mode". Notes> SET MODERATOR Set the conference to "restricted". Notes> SET CONFERENCE/RESTRICT=MEMBER Add each member into the conference. Notes> ADD MEMBER username username is the username of a future member of the conference. Do this for each member. To see a list of the members in your conference, Notes> SHOW MEMBERS To delete a member username. Notes> DELETE MEMBER username

Contact the ICS HelpLine (PBX 5700) to move your conference to public disk space so that other users may access it easily. Command Summary for Mail, News and Notes

These instructions will be useful to anyone who needs to log into another comput er system on the Internet. What is Telnet? Telnet is a program on any Kenyon VAX which allows you to connect to another computer system interactively. In order to use or log into another computer system, you must have access to that system either through a specific account there or a public access account name. The speed of interaction with the other system will vary according to how much traffic there is on the network. Telnet is used to access many different kinds of public services, including databases, freenets, and netfind. Login instructions are usually included with public access addresses. How to Use Telnet How to Start Telnet The simplest way to use TELNET is to follow it directly with the full address to which you want to connect, at the $ prompt:

$ TELNET host.domain For example, to establish an Interactive session on the VAX at the Stony Brook campus of CUNY, at the $ prompt type: $ TELNET CCMAIL.CUNYSB.EDU You can also start Telnet from the $ prompt without a hostname: $ TELNET In this case, you will be presented with the TELNET> prompt. For a brief listing of Telnet commands, press the question mark <?> key. To establish an interactive session from the TELNET> prompt, type: TELNET> OPEN host.domain For example, TELNET> OPEN CCMAIL.CUNYSB.EDU If you wish to keep or refer to a file of the session, you can try: $ telnet/log Telnet/Log will put a file of your session in your directory, but not all sites will support the log function. Unless you have an account on a remote system on the Internet and know the complete address of that system, you are advised NOT to explore the Telnet program. Unauthorized attempts to log into other systems may be seen with suspicion and may cause trouble for yourself and others. Use of the Internet is available to the College as a privilege. To Exit Telnet To exit Telnet from the TELNET> prompt, simply enter: TELNET> EXIT To Telnet to Kenyon College If you are away from the College and (1) have an account at another Internet site or (2) are offered Internet access without having your own account (e.g., at a conference), you can Telnet to Kenyon and log in, just as you would if you were on campus. $TELNET KCVAX1.KENYON.EDU or $TELNET KCVAX5.KENYON.EDU will allow you to log onto the academic VAX. Substitute KCVAX2 to Telnet to the Library system, or KCVAX3 to get the administrative system. TELNET Exercise{14}

Telnet gives you access to remote computers; although telnetting to private syst ems is discouraged, there are many public access facilities. These sites were chosen as a general sample, avoi ding libraries. Please try telnet again now (you've used it once already--in Netfind). Some of these sites support telnet/log, and some don't. If you are asked for a "terminal" or "term", use VT100. Go through the sites in any order you wish.

FTP (File Transfer Protocol){15}

The FTP program enables people to move files easily across the Internet. This d ocument outlines how to do this at Kenyon. What is FTP? FTP is a program designed to move files (especially large ones) from one place to another via the Internet. One can down- or up- load a file using various FTP commands. This utility is perhaps the most difficult use of the Internet to understand. In addition to an address to or from which you wish to transfer files, a detailed understanding of the network, the operating system at the foreign site, and a number of FTP commands, you will almost always need the proper username and passwords.

How to Use FTP To Start FTP The simplest way to connect to a foreign host to transfer files is to

type FTP at the $ prompt and specify a host: $ FTP host.domain A connection will be made and you will be asked for your username. After you provide it, you may be asked for a password. FTP can also be started without a hostname; at the $ prompt type: $ FTP Once inside the utility, you can connect to a foreign host by providing the appropriate IP address or host name after the OPEN command, like this at the FTP> prompt: FTP> OPEN 999.99.99.9 or FTP> OPEN host.domain For instance, if you want to FTP to Kenyon's academic VAX (usually a pointless but possible proposition) you could type at the FTP prompt: FTP> OPEN or FTP> OPEN KCVAX1.KENYON.EDU Should you fail to properly provide your username or password, you may try again by using the USER and PASS commands. For instance, after supplying an incorrect password you might see: <Login incorrect. The connection is still open, as reflected by the new prompt, KCVAX1.KENYON.EDU> At this prompt, to supply a different username, type: KCVAX1.KENYON.EDU> USER If you have only typed your password incorrectly, you may use the PASS command. "Anonymous" Some Internet hosts will not require you to have an account but will instead ask you to specify the name of the service you wish to access, so that you might log in as "anonymous". When you log in with a username of anonymous, it is customary to type your internet address when asked for a password. When dealing with different computers, you may run into another operating system (a way of organizing information and commands). Knowing the directory structure of a new (or familiar) operating system is important for finding what you need. To Change Subdirectories

To change what directory you are accessing, use the change directory command, as below for a VMS system like Kenyon's, at the KCVAX1.KENYON.EDU> prompt: KCVAX1.KENYON.EDU> CD [directory.subdir] or as follows for a UNIX system: CD /directory/subdir Beware of Playing Around Experimenting with these functions is a rather tedious process, and should not be done. Other systems may decide that you are a threat to security there and disconnect you.

To Download A File Once you have located the file you wish to download, use the GET command: GET filename.txt Various messages appear during the transfer process, and these can be understood (if you are interested) with a little effort. To Upload A File If, on the other hand, you wish to upload a file to the foreign host, make sure that you are in the proper directory, and type: PUT filename.txt File Types: ASCII or Binary The FTP program can transfer files in either binary or ASCII mode. If you are about to transfer a file labeled .TXT or one you know is in an ASCII format, type at the host.domain> prompt: ASCII Other files will be of a binary type. For these, type: BINARY Please be sure that you know what you are transferring and that it is of a reasonable size. Transferring large files is often time-consuming and you should be careful not to use more space than you have been allotted on the Kenyon computers. To Close a FTP Connection When you are ready to close a connection to a foreign host, at the FTP prompt, type: CLOSE or BYE You can now OPEN another connection.

To Stop Using FTP When you are done with your FTP session, to leave the program type: EXIT The EXIT command will CLOSE any open connections before exiting FTP. FTP Commands The following commands are recognized by most, if not all, ftp clients and servers. ASCII Sets file transfer to ASCII mode for transferring only ASCII text files. BINARY Sets file transfer to BINARY mode for transferring binary files. Example of binary files would be programs, graphics, wordperfect documents, etc. CD directory Change working directory on the remote system to the named directory. CD /PUB/MSDOSChanges working directory to /PUB/MSDOS CLOSE Ends FTP session and return to FTP command mode. You can OPEN another connection or QUIT. DELETE file Deletes the named file on the remote system. DELETE OLDFILE.TXT DIR Displays directory listing of files in current working directory on remote system. HELP command (or ?) Displays brief information about the named command. HELP DIR Type ? alone will display a list of all available FTP commands but without any instructions on use. LCD directory Changes the default working directory on the LOCAL system. LCD C:\FILESChanges working directory to C:\FILES on local computer system.

LS Equivalent to the DIR command but displays a short listing. LS /PUB/MSDOS MGET file-list Gets multiple files from remote system to local system. The list of files can be filenames each separated by a space or specified by using wildcard characters. The wildcard character "*" means any file and a "?" means any character at this position. MGET *.*Gets all files. MGET *.TXT Gets all files with extension TXT MGET *.BK?Gets all files with first two. characters of extension containing BK and third character being. anything. MPUT file-list Puts multiple files onto remote system from local system. The list of files can be filenames each separated by a space or specified using wildcard characters (see MGET). OPEN hostname.domain or OPEN IP-address Connects to named remote system. A system's hostname.domain format is similar to KCVAX3.KENYON.EDU or MAGNUS.ACS.OHIO-STATE.EDU. A system's IP address is similar to OPEN KCVAX3.KENYON.EDU OPEN PWD Prints the current working directory on the remote system. QUIT Closes any remaining FTP connections and exits FTP. SEND See PUT RECEIVE See GET USER Causes remote system to prompt for username and password. This is helpful if you enter an incorrect username or password and need the FTP server to prompt you again for your username and password. File Transfer Protocol Exercises{16}

The Internet Gopher, or simply Gopher, is a distributed document delivery servic e. It allows users to explore, search and retrieve information residing on different locations in a seamless fa shion. What is Gopher When browsing it, the information appears to the user as a series of nested menus. This kind of menu structure resembles the organization

of a directory with many subdirectories and files. The subdirectories and the files may be located either on the local server site or on remote sites served by other Gopher servers. From the user point of view, all information items presented on the menus appear to come from the same place. The information can be a text or binary file, directory information (loosely called phone book), image or sound. In addition, Gopher offers gateways to other information systems (World-Wide Web, WAIS, archie, WHOIS) and network services (Telnet, FTP). Gopher is often a more convenient way to navigate in a FTP directory and to download files. A Gopher server holds the information and handles the users' queries. In addition, links to other Gopher servers create a network wide cooperation to form the global Gopher web (Gopherspace). Who Can Use Gopher Gopher uses the client-server model to provide access to the Gopher web. You must be on the international TCP/IP network (the Internet) in order to use a client on your computer to access Gopher. How to Get to Gopher Users explore the Gopher menus using various local clients or accessing a remote client via an interactive Telnet session.

Local Clients Public domain clients for accessing a Gopher server are available for: Macintosh, MS/DOS, OS/2, VM/CMS, VMS, NeXT, Unix, X-Window. The clients are available for anonymous FTP from many FTP sites (e.g. in the directory /pub/gopher).

Remote Clients Some sites allow public access via Telnet to a client. To access such a remote client, telnet to one of these sites: Australia (login: info) Columbia Ecuador Sweden USA USA USA (login: panda)

At the login prompt type gopher (unless specified otherwise) and the toplevel Gopher menu for that site will be displayed. Users are requested to use the site closest to them.

Using Gopher The implementations of the Gopher clients on various platforms are slightly different to take advantage of the platforms' capabilities (mouse, graphic functions, XWindow server) and to offer the popular look and feel. Even with different implementations, the same set of functions and commands is available. When issuing the gopher command, you will be connected automatically to the default Gopher server specified at the installation. The format of the command is: gopher <hostname>

where hostname is an optional alternative Gopher server to which you want to talk. When connected to a Gopher server, it is still possible to access another server by exploring the Other Gopher servers in the rest of the world branch. To locate them more easily, the Gopher servers are distributed in geographical regions: * * * * * * Africa Europe Middle East North America Pacific South America

and then by countries. Access to a Gopher server is identical whether using a local or a remote client: a simple menu driven interface which doesn't require any special training or knowledge from the user. Here is a sample menu: Internet Gopher Information Client v1.1 Information About Gopher 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. About Gopher.

Press ? for Help, q to Quit, u to go up a menu In the example above, any item can be selected by typing its line

number or by moving the cursor (>) next to it. An item could be: a subdirectory a text File a binary File a sound file an image file a phone book (directory information) an indexsearch a Telnet session

Items are displayed with an identifying symbol next to them. In the example above, "<?>" means a full text index search, "/" means a subdirectory, "<Picture>" means an image file and no symbol means a text file. Some Gopher clients are not able to handle certain file types (e.g., sound files). Some clients display only files of types they can handle or files in which they suppose you are interested. Others display all types of files. Most Gopher clients allow you to create, view and select bookmarks. A bookmark keeps track of the exact location of a Gopher item, regardless of where it resides. It is useful when you often need to reach a file or a service located far from the top level directory. A collection of bookmarks is like a customized Gopher menu. Some capabilities of a local Gopher client are bound to the capabilities of your own computer. In fact, for sound files, image files and Telnet sessions, the Gopher client looks for the appropriate software on your computer and passes control to it to perform the requested task. When the task is completed, control is returned to the Gopher client. At any time, it is possible to terminate the session (quit command), to cancel the current processing or to get the online help (help command). An item is processed according to its type: a subdirectory its contents are displayed. To go up one level, use the up command. a text file the file is displayed. Then you can browse it, search for a particular string, print it on a local printer or copy (save) it onto your local disk space in a userspecified file (the last 2 functions may not be available to you). a binary file the remote file is simply copied onto your local disk space in a userspecified file. Binary files are binhexed Macintosh files, archives (.zip, .tar,...), compressed files, programs, etc. a sound file the remote file is played through your local audio device if it exists, as well as the appropriate utility. Only one sound file can be active at a time; you will be warned if you try to play a sound before a previous one is done.

an image file the remote file is displayed on your computer screen if an image viewer exists on your computer. a phone book you are prompted for a search string to look up people information through the selected phone book. Since different institutions have different directory services, the queries are not performed in the same fashion. an indexsearch you are prompted for a search string which may be one or more words, plus the special operators and, or, and not. The search is case insensitive. Usually, an index is created to help users locate the information in a set of documents quickly. e.g.: terminal and setting or tset will find all documents which contain both the words terminal and setting, or the word tset. or is nonexclusive so the documents may contain all of the words. The result of the index search looks like any Gopher menu, but each menu item is a file that contains the specified search string. a Telnet session Telnet sessions are normally textbased information services, for example, access to library catalogs. VERONICA Veronica was designed as a solution to the problem of resource discovery in the rapidly expanding Gopher web, providing a key word search of more than 500 Gopher menus. Veronica helps you find Gopher based information without doing a menu-by-menu, site-by-site search. It is to the Gopher information space, what archie is to the FTP archives. Veronica is accessible from most toplevel Gopher menus or from the Other Gopher servers... branch. There is no need for opening another connection or another application. There are two search methods: the simple Boolean search method and the partial Boolean search method. When you choose either search method, you will be prompted for a search string. The searches are carried out on an index of Gopher menu titles. They are NOT full-text searches of data at Gopher sites. Veronica queries are case insensitive. Simple Boolean search method The search string may contain keywords optionally separated by and and or. And is assumed between 2 words. Or takes precedence over and. e.g.: eudora

will give you a list of menu titles that contain eudora: Electronic Mail: Eudora on Macintosh, Micro-08 Modem Setting Eudora Slip. A UNIXbased Eudora reader for those that ... Eudora: Popmail for the Macintosh. Eudora. while eudora and macintosh will give you a list of menu titles that contain both eudora and macintosh: Eudora: Popmail for the Macintosh. v4.1 EUDORA: EMAIL FOR THE MACINTOSH. Micro News: Eudora A Mailer for the Macintosh. Eudora: Electronic Mail on Your Macintosh. ACS News Eudora Mail Reader for Macintosh. etc. Partial Boolean search method: BOOLEANS The search string contain keywords optionally separated and, or and not. The evaluation is done from left to right. not clauses are evaluated after all the other clauses are evaluated. e.g.: red and blue or yellow but not green and orange or black but not white will be interpreted as: (((((red and blue) or yellow) and orange) or black) not green) not white) PARTIALWORD '*' is the wildcard character, which can replace any other character. It causes a partial search on the substring it follows. e.g.: desk* will give you a list of menu titles, including: The Help Desk. Keene State College Press Release COMPUTER ON EVERY DESK.DESKQview/X... An alternative to Windows???. Ethernet at Your Desktop/ LITERAL A string surrounded with a pair of quotes (') or doublequotes (") causes a exact match search (caseinsensitive). and, not, and '*' may occur in the literal string, they have no special meaning. The first part of a literal string must be a word, rather than a delimiter symbol, to get a successful search. e.g.: "desk"

will give you a list of menu titles, including: Mac on Your Desk. Information Desk. Available at the Help Desk .... The result of both search methods is a Gopher menu composed of items (with an identifying symbol) whose titles match the search string. Like any Gopher items, you can process them: open subdirectories, display text files, etc. LEARNING MORE ABOUT GOPHER The Internet Gopher is developed by the Computer and Information Services Department of the University of Minnesota. Bug reports, comments, suggestions, etc. should be mailed to the Gopher development team at: Mailing list: To subscribe send a mail to: Usenet newsgroup: comp.infosystems.gopher A comprehensive description of veronica search methods is available from the veronica menus.

Send the command: GET filename where the filename is either: GOPHER PS (Postscript) GOPHER MEMO (plain text) Gopher Commands{18}

LOOK Gopher displays all of the information you see using a special display program called LOOK. LOOK allows you to scroll through the file, search for key words, etc. It has a menu of commands at the bottom

of the screen for easy access. Only the Capitalized letter in the command word must be typed in order to execute the command; the letter can be in either upper or lower case. An explanation of each LOOK command is listed below: helP Exit Quit u Home End scrRight scrLeft Find findNext Edit Go ion Spawn document chWid e Txt/hex - displays document in "text" mode or hexadecimal The following cursor movement keys also work in LOOK, although they are not listed on the menu: Page Up Page Down Capturing Gopher Data Exit the document in the LOOK program by typing "x" . Gopher will ask if you wish to print the information, save the information in a file, mail the information to someone (such as yourself), or just continue back to the current menu. Press <RETURN> to continue back to the current menu Type "m" to send this file as a mail message to yourself or to someone else's username that you can specify. Type "s" to save a copy of this file to a filename that you can specify. Simply delete the default filename that appears and put in your own. The file can also be saved to a directory other than the one you are in by specifying its name, along with the filename. Type "p" to print a copy of the file to your default printer that you can specify in your LOGIN.COM file. If no printer is specified, the copy will not print; so don't use the print option until you have entered the default printer command in your LOGIN.COM file! To do so edit your login com (use a VAX system editor, not Word Perfect) and add the following. (Substitute the name of the print queue you prefer for the phrase Default_Printque_Name.) $ DEFINE GOPHERQUE DEFAULT_PRINTQUE_NAME - moves cursor back one screen - moves cursor forward one screen - jumps out of Gopher temporarily to "$" prompt; type "LO" at "$" prompt to return to - changes screen width: 132 or 80 characters/lin moves cursor to beginning of file moves cursor to end of file moves cursor to right end of screen moves cursor to left end of screen searches for specified word or phrase searches for next occurrence of that word enables you to edit the temporary file - enables you to move to specified locat - accesses the help file for the "Look" facility - exits file and returns you to current menu - aborts the file and returns you to current men

for example ... $ DEFINE GOPHERQUE CHA1HP

After trying out these options, you can press <RETURN> to get back to the menu where you were browsing when you accessed the document. To quit Gopher, type "q" .

Getting Gopher Help There are several types of help available in Gopher. All Gopher menus contain a "?" Help option, where you can get help in learning to use Gopher. The LOOK program's Help is reached by entering P (from the helP listed among the choices at the bottom of the screen.)

KCInfo is Kenyon College's Campus Wide Information System, or CWIS (pronounced " kwiss"). KCInfo is based on the Gopher program. There is a Gopher "server" running here at Kenyon, and when you type KCInfo at the VAX $ prompt, you are running a Gopher "client" which connects to the local Gopher server. Through a series of menu screens, KCInfo p rovides easy on-line access to a variety of services and information for students, faculty, a nd staff at Kenyon. Many department and campus organizations provide information and services throug h KCInfo. Each information provider (or "IP") works with a liaison from ICS to plan a KCIn fo service and put their specific information into the appropriate format for delivery to you t hrough KCInfo. If you or your department wishes to make any information in your purview accessible through KCInfo, please call ICS at PBX 5696 to discuss the process involved. To access KCInfo, at the VAX $ prompt, type KCINFO and press <Enter> Select an item either by using the arrow keys on your computer then pressing <En ter> -orby typing in the number of the item of interest then pressing <Enter> The options available to you at each step are displayed at the bottom of the scr een. For instance, type U to move up to the previous menu, or type Q to quit. As with other Go

pher programs, you can print any item you read, or even mail it to someone else (or yourself). At this time, entries in the KCInfo structure are present but most are empty. D uring the summer of 1993, information providers will be formatting materials and placing them int o the KCInfo system. When you return in the fall, please take a closer look at KCInfo. Wide Area Information Server (WAIS){20}

How to Access WAIS at Kenyon From the Library Menu (C LIBRARY) choose option E, then option B. From the Main Menu of the LIBS program choose 5, Wide-area Information Services. You will see WAIS as choice 4 of the next screen. At the login prompt enter wais (this must be in small letters). At the request to identify yourself enter your Internet email name. At the VT100 prompt press the <Enter> key. You will be presented with a screen-based version of WAIS (swais). You may also access WAIS via Gopher servers, or by going directly to THINK.COM (at the $ prompt enter TELNET QUAKE.THINK.COM ). What is WAIS? WAIS is a distributed database system based on the client-server model. WAIS servers are computers on the network that contain one or more databases and special software that takes care of the indexing and retrieval of the documents in the database(s). One of WAIS's special strengths is its ability to accommodate a wide variety of data types. Although most WAIS databases today consist of plain text, WAIS servers can store and index image files (such as files in GIF, TIFF, and PICT formats), sound files, formatted text files, and many other file formats. As far as the server is concerned, the format of the data is not significant, because the client does not query the database directly, but rather queries an index that contains information about the database. The key to getting at WAIS data is the client application. The client is the software interface that allows end-users to ask questions about what is contained in one or more WAIS databases and read or download documents of interest. WAIS clients have been developed for many different computer platforms including the Macintosh, DOS, VMS, RS6000, generic Unix, X Windows, MS Windows, GNU Emacs, SunView, NeXTstep, and Motif. Communication between the WAIS client and server is based on a standard protocol called Z39.50. This protocol, which was originally developed as a tool for searching library catalog systems, has been expanded by the developers of WAIS to provide for future flexibility as WAIS evolves. But enough on the

technical side of WAIS. Let's take a look at how the WAIS project got started, what kind of information it offers, and how you can use it to retrieve information.

The Origins of WAIS WAIS was the brainchild of Brewster Kahle, project leader at Thinking Machines Corporation. (Thinking Machines is the manufacturer of massively parallel computers called Connection Machines.) In 1989, Kahle (and Thinking Machines) invited three corporate giants, Apple Computer, Dow Jones and Co., and KPMG Peat Marmick (a world-wide accounting and tax consulting company) to jointly develop a text-based information system for corporate executives that would permit users (in Kahle's words) "to retrieve personal, corporate, and wide-area information through one easy-to-use interface." Ideally this information retrieval system was to be platform independent so that the user could obtain information residing on many different machines located in many different places. Another goal of the project was to design an interface that would not require any specialized knowledge of computers or database query languages. Specifically, the user interface was to be as natural and user-friendly as possible. The fruits of this collaboration are the set of products that we now refer to collectively as WAIS.

What Can I Find with WAIS? With over 300 databases from which to choose, there is hardly a topic that isn't at least touched upon in WAIS. The sidebar called "Information Available through WAIS: A Sampler" on this page will give you an idea of the tremendous diversity of the WAIS databases. Unfortunately, most WAIS clients do not offer the option of browsing the list of WAIS databases to see what's available. There are, however, two ways of viewing the entire list of WAIS databases. First, the Gopher application offers a gateway to WAIS-based information. You'll typically find it in the sub-menu "Other Gopher and Information Servers/WAIS Based Information/Everything." If you go to this menu, you can see a list of all of the publicly available WAIS servers. The Gopher interface is not especially effective for searching WAIS archives, but does provide an easy way to see a complete list of WAIS databases. Another method for browsing WAIS data is to telnet to a computer at Thinking Machines Corporation that runs the Unix WAIS client called SWAIS. To do so, open a telnet session with the host "" and log in as "wais" . When asked for a password, enter your e-mail address (e.g., ). A welcome banner will appear that describes a little bit about the SWAIS interface. Then you will see a list of WAIS databases (called "sources") as shown in Figure 1 on page 2. You can scroll through the list with your arrow keys and view a description of any source by highlighting it and typing "v" for view. To exit the description, type "q" for quit and then press any key. The SWAIS client can also be used for conducting WAIS searches. The interface is fairly intuitive, and if you need

help, you can simply type a question mark ( "?" ). However, as WAIS clients go, SWAIS is not among the best. To get a feeling for the true power of WAIS, use a client specifically designed for your desktop computer or workstation. Important WAIS Concepts Regardless of what WAIS client you use, the procedure for searching WAIS databases is more or less the same. Before getting into specifics, however, it's important to understand at least three pieces of WAIS jargon: "The Directory of Servers" This is a master list of WAIS databases that is maintained by Thinking Machines Corporation (TMC). When a new WAIS database is created, the maintainer sends information about how to reach the database and what it contains to TMC. This information is then added to the Directory of Servers. To put it succinctly, the Directory of Servers is a WAIS database containing descriptive information about all other publicly accessible WAIS databases. "Source" In WAIS lingo, the word "source" actually has two meanings. In a general sense, source is a synonym for the word database. More specifically, a source is a text file used by the WAIS client application that contains information about a specific WAIS database, including how to reach the database (e.g., its domain name, IP address, and TCP port) and a description of what it contains. The content of a source file is generally identical to the entry for that source in the so-called Directory of Servers. If you acquire and install a WAIS client, the software may only include a source file for the Directory of Servers itself. When you connect to the Directory of Servers, you can search for other sources and save them as source files with your client program. "Question" A question is a WAIS query or lookup. The definition seems rather obvious, but WAIS questions have special characteristics. In addition to containing your search expression, the question contains the list of sources (databases) you want to search, and any refinements that you might have made to your query including relevance feedback, a concept we'll talk about in a few moments. Questions, like sources, can be saved as files. Some WAIS clients allow you to automatically run saved questions at specific time intervals to see if any new information is available on your topic. Questions can also be modified. You can add new keywords, new sources, etc., and these modifications also can be saved. So, a question is not just a one-time lookup, but a collection of information that allows you to do the same lookup many times or modify and refine your lookup as you get a better feel for how to search WAIS resources.

How to Access World-Wide Web at Kenyon{21}

From the Library Menu (C LIBRARY) choose option E, then option B. From the Main Menu of the LIBS program choose 5, Wide-area Information Services. You will see WORLDWIDEWEB as c hoice 5 of the next screen. You will be automatically accepted. You may also access WWWS via Gopher servers, or by going directly to CERN (at th e $ prompt enter TELNET INFO.CERN.CH). What is World-Wide Web World-Wide Web (also called WWW or W3) is an information system based on hypertext, which offers a means of moving from document to document (usually called to navigate) within a network of information. Hypertext documents are linked to each other through a selected set of words. For example, when a new word, or a new concept, is introduced in a text, hypertext makes it possible to point to another document which gives more details about it. The reader can open the second document by selecting the unknown word or concept and the relevant section is displayed. The second document may also contain links to further details. The reader need not know where the referenced document is, and there is no need to type a command to display it, or to browse it to find the right paragraph. Crossreferences may be defined in the same document. A collection of documents is a database. If you were reading this document on a hypertext system, instead of this all too short explanation about hypertext, you would have a selectable pointer to a complete hypertext information web with examples and more pointers to other definitions. For instance, in the first document you might read: The WorldWideWeb (W3) is a wide-area "hypermedia" information retrieval initiative aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents. Selecting hypermedia will display the following explanation for you: WHAT IS HYPERTEXT Hypertext is text without the constraint of linearity. Hypertext is text which contains "links" to other texts. The term was coined by Ted Nelson around 1965. Hypermedia is a term used for hypertext which is not constrained to be text.

Then you can learn more about links and Nelson. Also, special documents (indexes) in the WWW information space can be search for given keyword(s). The result is a document which contains links to the documents found. World-Wide Web uses hypertext over the network: the linked documents may be located at various sites. WWW can handle different text formats and various information organizations. WWW also provides access to many of the other tools described in this guide.

Who Can Use World-Wide Web WWW uses the client-server model to provide access to the information universe. You must be on the international TCP/IP network (the Internet) in order to use a client on your computer to access WWW. How to Get to World-Wide Web Users access the World-Wide Web facilities via a client called a browser. This interface provides transparent access to the WWW servers. If a local WWW client is not available on your computer, you may use a client at a remote site. Thus, an easy way to start with WWW is to access a remote client. Local Clients Usage of a local client is encouraged since it provides better performance and better response time than a remote client. Public domain clients for accessing WWW servers are available for: Macintosh, MS/DOS, VMS, VM/CMS, MVS, NeXT, Unix, X-Window. The clients are available for anonymous FTP from in the directory pub/www. All these platforms support a simple line mode browser. In addition, graphical clients are available for: Macintosh, Windows, X-Window, NeXT and Unix. Remote clients To access a remote WWW client, telnet to one of the server sites. At the login:prompt enter www, no password is needed. There are many WWW servers already available throughout the network, and the number is growing, so it is not possible to include a comprehensive list here. A server may provide databases on specific topics. The following servers act as demonstration sites: Finland Israel Switzerland USA

CERN is the entry point to find information about WWW itself and to have an overview of the Web with a catalogue of the databases sorted by subject. Using World-Wide Web When using a graphical interface, you access the WWW functions by pressing mouse buttons. In particular, references are highlighted or underlined words. To follow a link, double-click on the associated reference. The line mode browser is a more simple user-interface: references are numbers in square brackets next to words. Type the number and hit the RETURN key to follow a reference. For example, here is the beginning of the Subject Catalogue you get on the CERN server: The World-Wide Web Virtual Library: Subject Catalogue INFORMATION BY SUBJECT See also arrangements by organization[1] or by service type[2].

A list of matching entries is displayed with possibly links to further details. Find can be omitted if the first keyword does not conflict with another WWW command. Multiple keywords are separated by blanks. Go address goes to the document represented by the given hypertext address, which is interpreted relatively to the current document.

From the Library Menu (C LIBRARY) choose option E, then option B. From the Main Menu of the LIBS program choose 5, Wide-area Information Services. You will see ARCHIE as choice 1 of the next screen. At the login prompt type archie (this must be in small letters). You will be aut omatically entered. You may also access ARCHIE via Gopher servers, or by going directly to an ARCHIE site (for example, at the $ prompt enter the following command: TELNET ARCHIE.SURA.NET )

What is Archie Archie is an information system. It offers an electronic directory service for locating information in the Internet network. The best known use of archie is for scanning a database of the contents of more than 1000 anonymous FTP sites around the world. Currently, this database contains more than 2,100,000 file names from anonymous FTP sites. This database is known as the archie database. The files made available at anonymous FTP sites are software packages for various systems (Windows, MSDOS, Macintoshes, Unix, etc.), utilities, information or documentation files, mailing list or usenet group discussion archives. At most FTP sites, the resources are organized hierarchically in directories and subdirectories. The database tracks both the directory path and the file names. The archie database is automatically updated, thereby ensuring that the information is accurate. Using this database, users can easily find the

location of files they need without logging onto several machines. Who Can Use Archie Users on any network can access the archie database by electronic mail. Other means of access are available to users on the Internet (see the section Using ARCHIE below for details). You are requested to respect a few basic rules when you request information from an archie server: avoid connecting during working hours; most of the archie servers are not dedicated machines, they have local functions as well. make your queries as specific as possible; the response will be quicker and shorter. user interfaces installed on your computer contribute to reduce the load on the server sites, please use them. use the archie server closest to you and, in particular, don't overload the transatlantic lines. How To Get To Archie The archie database is maintained in 15 different locations.

Australia Finland Germany Great Britain Israel Japan Japan Korea New Zealand Sweden Taiwan USA USA USA USA

There are three ways to access the archie database: via a local client, interactive Telnet session or electronic mail. Each type of access is described below in the Using ARCHIE section. Using Archie The format of the parameters is given at the end of this section. Angle brackets (<>) indicate an optional parameter; a vertical bar (|) indicates a choice of parameters. Using a local client Usage of these clients is encouraged since they provide quick and easy non-interactive access to the archie servers, and thus, better performance of the servers and better response time for the user.

Public domain clients for accessing archie servers are available for: Macintosh, MS/DOS, OS/2, VMS, NeXT, Unix and X-Window. The clients are available for anonymous FTP from the archie sites in the directory archie/clients.

Archie Client Command and Parameters The archie client is a command with parameters that you enter on your local machine. With most versions of the archie client, if you type archie with no parameters, you will get a list of the possible parameters and a short description of each. The format of the command is: archie <-options> string | pattern where the options are: ospecifies an output file name to store the results (not available with all clients). llists the result one match per line. This form is suitable for parsing by programs. tsorts the result inverted by date m#specifies maximum number of matches to return (# within the range 0 to 1000). The default value is 95. harchie_server specifies an archie server to send the query to; if this parameter is not given, then the query will be sent to the default archie server, if one is defined. Llists known servers and current default The following group of options determines the kind of search performed on the database. They are mutually exclusive. sa match occurs if the file/directory name contains string. The search is case insensitive. cas above, but the search is case sensitive. estring must EXACTLY match (including case) the file/directory name in the database. This is the DEFAULT search method. rsearches the database using pattern. It contains special characters which must be interpreted before performing the search. There may be some slight differences in the options available with different clients on different platforms. The result is a list of FTP site addresses with entries matching the argument, the size of the resource, its last modification date and its directory. By default, the list is sorted by host address. See the

Examples section below for an example of archie output. Learning More About Archie However you communicate with the archie server, on-line help is available.

Online Public Access Catalog: Limiting by Date, Media, or Language{26}

The following describes how to limit an author, title, or subject search by dat e, media, or language and also

provide some examples. Types of Limits When an online catalog search retrieves an overwhelming number of responses, the search may be limited by the following: Date ...... enter a specific year (range is not available) Media ...... books, serials, musical scores, audiovisual materials, prose recordings, or music recordings Language ... for example Chinese, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Middle English, Spanish

How to Limit a Search To limit a search, at the >> prompt type LIMIT and press the <Enter> key; instructions on how to enter limits will follow. (Please note that this limit capability cannot be used with the Keyword Search option.) A limit may also be placed along with the initial search. Separate the initial search and limit terms with a vertical bar (|). A=CAMUS|LA=FRE For Date, enter For Language, enter For Media, enter |LA= |D= A=CAMUS|D=1990 A=CAMUS|LA=FRE |M= A=CAMUS|M=AM

Limits may be combined. A=CAMUS|D=1990|LA=FRE|M=AM

Codes for Limiting by Media and Language By Media The codes for limiting by media type are: AM AS GM JM IM CM for monographs for serials (periodicals) for audiovisual media (videotapes, films) for musical recordings (records, cd's) for spoken-word recordings (poetry, plays) for musical scores

By Language The codes for limiting by language are usually the first three letters of the language, with the following exceptions: GRC (Greek, Classical to 1453)

JPN (Japanese) ANG (Old English, 600-1100) ENM (Middle English, 1100-1500) FRO (Old French, 842-1400) Online Public Access Catalog: Searching For Video Recordings{27}

The following explains how to limit an online catalog search for video recording s.

When searching the online catalog for video recordings, it is recommended that the key-word search option be used. Key-word searching will find those videos addressing a particular subject, but lacking a subject heading. Access the Key-word Search screen by typing K at the >> prompt. To retrieve all video recordings, type FI VIDEO? at the >> prompt. A key-word, author, title, or subject search may be used to limit the search. FI VIDEO? AND TI MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM FI VIDEO? AND (TI AIDS OR SU AIDS DISEASE)

Please note, a video recording search will find commercially-made videos, Kenyon-made videos, and laser discs. Library Services Menu{28}

This Directory is part of an ongoing project and is updated as new electronic journals and newsletters come into existence and as existing entries are changed. Every effort has been made to provide the user with up-to-date information. Most entries have been either provided from or scrutinized by the journal and newsletter editors themselves to assure accuracy. The primary intent of this Directory is to catalog all existing electronic journals and newsletters that are available over the various academic networks. A secondary intention is to catalog all e-serials that are being produced over the commercial networks. Thus, over time this Directory will provide an entirely comprehensive listing of all e-serials. As the traditional taxonomy of "journal" and "newsletter" is ill-suited to the diversity of formats found within the networks, a third category of "Hypercard Stacks, Digest-Newsletters and Others" (Section 4) is here included. This section catalogs hypercard stacks and other formats that represent significant sources of information that are similar in nature to journals and newsletters. It should be noted that digests which are straightforward collections of conversational questions and answers are considered to be a type of list, but any digests which mix a simple list format with the newsletter format are here included. Ordinary (conversational) digests and lists are covered in Diane Kovacs' compilation, Academic Lists. Thus, no attempt has been made to provide a comprehensive listing of the hundreds of existing digests in this Directory. For a complete catalog of digests and lists the reader is encourage to retrieve the Global List with the command: (if any) (via Bitnet and Internet) (whom to sent submissions to and in what form) (how to subscribe to a related list, if any) (how to access them) (for more information)

TELL LISTSERV AT NDSUVM1 GET INTEREST PACKAGE Or through FTP to (NISC.SRI.COM) GET /netinfo/interest-groups Warning - this file will be sent to you in twelve or more sections and is over 500K in size. The philosophy behind the presentation of the information within this Directory is based on the intention of providing the reader with the most up-to-date information that is possible and in the most comprehensive fashion. Thus, I have avoided editing descriptions as size is not a factor for an e-text. I have also listed partial entries in the interest of providing the reader with the maximum of available information (these incomplete entries will be marked as such). This makes it possible for the reader to follow leads I have not yet completed and, in turn, to provide me with information not yet represented in the latest edition of the Directory. Users of this document are encouraged to sent me notices of defunct entries, new entries and related information and suggestions. By this means I hope to utilize fully the best features of the Net and to make information available in a fashion that draws upon and promotes the unique strength of the virtual community.

Definitions Multimedia the integrated presentation of textual, audio and video information, usually mediated by a microcomputer Interactive multimedia a multimedia presentation in which the learner is given the opportunity to affect the course of the presentation, even to the extent of changing the presentation for subsequent learners Application another term for computer program. File formats different types of material - text, graphics, audio, video - are stored on the computer in different formats. There are standards (sometimes more than one) for each type of file format. Thus, sound files are often stored as .WAV files ("waveform"); static graphic images as .BMP files ("bitmapped"), video sequences as .AVI files ("audio/video

interleaved"), or animations stored as .FLI files ("flicks"). Specific programs exist to edit, display, play or view each type of file format; a multimedia application can work with several file formats at once. Computer animations graphical and often textual materials that are animated on screen. Most animations, created using computer programs, are twodimensional, however some programs are capable of creating highresolution, shaded and 3-D computer images. Computer simulations computer-based models of real-world events and situations, most of which allow the learner to change critical parameters in the model for purposes of exploring the model. Sophisticated simulations allow the learner to make decisions and experience situations which may otherwise be too dangerous or costly. CD-ROM a compact disc which stored digital data instead of audio tracks. ROM stands for "read only memory" since most computers can only read the CD-ROM disc. Each disc contains approximately 600 megabytes of information. Videodisc a storage device much like a CD-ROM but physically larger and capable of storing more information than a CD-ROM. Videodisc players can be controlled by a computer to present audio and video information in a multimedia presentation. Because of the expense of creating videodiscs and the declining costs of other digital storage media, videodiscs are no longer the storage device of choice. Scanner a device which operates much like a photocopier but which stores the scanned document as an image. If the scanned image contains text, a program for "optical character recognition" can be used to convert the image of text into editable text for a word processor.

Examples of Multimedia and Related Applications in Several Disciplines: Video for Windows, by Microsoft. a utility which can capture, display and edit video sequences (and synchronized audio tracks) which are stored on a microcomputer's hard drive. Encarta, by Microsoft. a multimedia encyclopedia with three sections: The Encyclopedia with 25,000 topics, The Atlas of global maps in detail, and The Timeline. Clinton, Portrait of a Victory, created by San Anselmo (Californiabased Amazing Media). an interactive CD-ROM which documents Bill Clinton's private moments, profiles the politician, and details the cross-country bus trip while campaigning for President. Multimedia Beethoven: The Ninth Symphony, by Microsoft.

a CD-ROM based program which presents each of the four major movements of the symphony, describes the times in which Beethoven lived, explains music concepts with examples from the Ninth Symphony, and a close reading of the symphony in which the learner listens to the movements with textual annotation. Tough Choices: Ethics, the Elderly, and Life-sustaining Technologies Using video dramatizations, this PC-based videodisc lets health care providers explore the ethical and legal issues of life-sustaining technology. Oxford English Dictionary a CD-ROM that contains all the words in the English language (more than half a million). Includes their meaning, derivatives, and how they have been used over the years. Aids Roulette, created by San Francisco's Exploratorium Science Museum. a program that educates players by letting them explore the odds of contracting the disease. Players input their sexual orientation, use of condoms, intervenous drug use, and if so, whether needles are cleaned. The Presidents, created by the National Geographic Society. lets users explore the connections between U.S. chief executives and the times in which they lived. Included are slide shows of photos, drawings and paintings, audio clips, short movies of speeches and other events. Timeline: Understanding the Los Angeles Riots, by the New England Technology Group. an interactive CD-ROM project which presents mini-documentaries comprised of broadcast news footage. The objective is to educate the user so they can draw their own conclusions. Have You Seen Me?, created by The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. an application that uses text, audio, and visual data (photos, recordings, and home videos) in packets for easy transmission throughout a telephone network. The network will supply agencies with up-to-data, computer age-progressed "wanted posters" of missing children at the touch of a button and transmit home video of a child or alleged abductor to help in identification by law enforcement. Cinemania, by Microsoft. a CD-ROM-based multimedia application with movie listings for 19,000 films, biographies on 3,000 film personalities and topical articles on subjects relating to film, such as directing, special effects, histories of studios. The program allows the user to annotate each film or biography with their own comments. Seven Days in August a CD-ROM based program that focuses on the week leading up to the construction of the Berlin Wall, August 10-16, 1961. The user

can choose their own track through the sections on the Berliners, biographies the "Home Front" (US media's record of electronic roundtable, a discussion by

material which includes of Kennedy and Krushchev, the events) and an five political analysts.

Photo CD Viewer, by Kodak. a simple image management application which allows the user to keep track of hundreds of high-quality images stored on a CDROM through Kodak's new Photo CD process. Power Japanese covers the basics of the Japanese language and teaches the country's business etiquette. It teaches how to write, pronounce, and recognize Katakana and Hiragana phonetic syllables, and how this fits into the structure of the language.

Requirements for Multimedia Applications Multimedia applications require a high-performance microcomputer (for example, a computer based on the Intel i486 chip). Additionally, multimedia presentations normally require a fast CD-ROM drive, a large hard drive, and at least 4 megabytes of main memory. Most modern multimedia applications run under Microsoft Windows and are best viewed at Super VGA resolution (800 X 600 pixels on the monitor, or higher resolution). Courseware{35}

Definitions Courseware any computer program which has been developed for instruction; a combination of the words course and software. Authoring tools computer programs which make it possible to create and modify other programs; a specialized type of "computer-aided software engineering" which greatly simplify the process of developing new programs Content specialist an individual with specialized knowledge in a field but one who may or may not have the experience or skills to design and implement courseware. Hypertext a method of "linking" related textual materials without the constraint of linearity. Hypertexts allow the learner to browse through complex texts by following different paths. Hypermedia non-linearly linked materials as in hypertexts but not restricted to textual material. Can include graphics, audio, video and text. CAI

Computer-Aided Instruction. The old model for using computers to instruct, using the computer as an electronic page-turner. Often called "drill and kill." Minimally effective for most applications, especially by today's standards which include personal interaction with multimedia materials.

Key Issues for Courseware Development in Academia What Resources are Required to Create Undergraduate-Level Courseware? In 1989, it was estimated that it took 200 hours of design and programming effort to develop one hour of courseware presentations. Since then, new courseware authoring tools have been developed which have reduced the time needed to develop materials and which have made it possible for content specialist themselves - with little or no programming experience - to create courseware materials. With five to ten hours of introduction to most modern courseware authoring tools, most non-programmers should be able to create one hour of new courseware for every five hours spent designing and linking the content material. What about Hardware and Software Standards? Hardware and software standards are a critical component in a successful plan for courseware development. The broad objective is to provide easy access to the materials to students. If students confront a maze of different computing systems, different interfaces with different rules for running programs, most of their time will be spent learning the tools rather than the content. Standards also help create a local knowledge base to promote and support further development. What Incentives are there for Faculty to Design and Implement Courseware? Courseware can be just as effective as the printed word, if not more so, in communicating scholarly work, so should the time spent in courseware development be counted toward tenure and promotion? Many new textbooks are accompanied by software to supplement the text. Should this be peer-reviewed and included in the faculty evaluation process? What role is played by other incentives to create curricular materials with technology, such as Kenyon's Academic Computing Award program?

Some Examples of Courseware Authoring Tools Authorware Professional a Windows program from Macromind which uses a graphical interface to create flow diagrams that represent varied pathways through course materials ToolBook, by Asymetrix.

a Windows program which emphasizes a scripting language to create the flow through course materials. Programs developed with ToolBook are called "books." Guide the first commercial hypertext program, originally written for DOS computers, now a Windows application that includes multimedia links. HyperCard the Macintosh hypertext program that was distributed freely by Apple Computer. Tens of thousands of HyperCard "stacks" (or programs) were written in the public domain as a result of the open distribution of HyperCard. Wincraft Converter a Windows program which converts Macintosh HyperCard stacks into ToolBook programs that run under Microsoft Windows.

Examples of Courseware Legacy of Graphic Design a ToolBook application which examines the lives and work of many late nineteenth and twentieth century graphics artists, with examples of their work and biographies. Neurosim, created by Art Leccese with Andy Stone. a series of computer-created 3-D animations illustrating the biochemical activities at the junction between two nerves. Cruise the Internet, developed by Merit. a basic guide to the Internet, the firm that manages parts of the Internet for the National Science Foundation. English Poetry an interactive database of all English poets from the year 600 to 1900. This programs allows the learner to use many search strategies, to review biographic information about each poet, and browse each poet's work. MapInfo a program to manage existing maps as well as to create new maps, and link the information to databases such as US Census data, historical information, environmental characteristics. ToolBook "books", converted from HyperCard stacks. hypertext programs in Islamic History, Shakespeare's Macbeth, Sonnets - just a few examples of what can be converted from the Mac to Windows environment. SEEN, Tutorials for a networked program procedures they use material. Students comments. Critical Reading that guides learners through the critical in their study of their own and other's written can read each others work and add their own

Conflict and Cooperation-War Games

a program which allows several users to interact with one another over a computer network to experiment with the relationship between conflict and cooperation. Quotemaster a indexed database of quotes which can be quickly searched and clipped into other documents.

Fugawiland a computer simulation which gives the learner experience in sampling and interpreting archaeological data. The Complete Political Science Simulation Library a series of six programs which introduces a body of substantive material in American government and provides decision -making experience in conditions of limited information. Students use variable levels of resources to "purchase" information; an important part of the strategy is in careful choice of which information to gather. Includes programs on political redistricting, legislative coalition building, political campaigning, the judicial process, presidential popularity and public opinion polling. Finale a Windows programs for must transcription, scoring, playback and professional publishing. Music can be entered through a MIDI keyboard or through the keypad and mouse; music can be played back through any MIDI instrument. Junior Year Abroad an intercultural simulation package to help student learn about the importance of non-verbal communication. Grammatik a rule-based grammar checker which is now part of WordPerfect for Windows. Rules can be customized to accommodate different styles of writing; the program interactively checks and reports deviations from the rule set selected. Boolean Searching Search Strategies HELPHELPHELPHELPHELPHELPHELPHELP{36}

I GOT NO HITS! WHAT AM I DOING WRONG??? Have I chosen the right database? Have I been too specific in formulating the search? Has there been anything done on this topic? Is there any literature to search? Have I included all possible terms and word forms? Should I truncate?

Was Boolean Logic used correctly? Did I make a technical error, e.g., spelling or command syntax? Should I search free text (natural language)? Where's the Librarian?

I GOT A BILLION HITS! HOW CAN I WHITTLE THIS DOWN? Delete less specific synonyms and ambiguous terms. Use controlled vocabulary. Search fewer subject fields, e.g., just the descriptor field not the full text, abstract, title. Add additional facets with AND or NOT. Add restrictions, e.g., date of publication, type of publication, language, etc. Find a Librarian. CD-ROM Databases

Slide Collection The slide collection housed in the library includes visual materials from many disciplines. Images are organized into large groupings by artistic mediums such as painting, sculpture, architecture, furniture as well as the general liberal arts disciplines. The latter category includes, but is not limited to, the following: theater, history, music, religion, psychology, historical biography, and sociology. When appropriate, cross reference cards are placed into the collection as pointers to other portions of the collection for less experienced patrons. Accessing images by Harlem Renaissance artists requires some preparation by the patron. First, artists connected to the movement must be identified using reference books and general histories. I suggest using Bruce Kellner's The Harlem Renaissance (REF/700.8/H22) or Mary Campbell's Harlem Renaissance Art of Black America (FOLIO 704.03/H22) as a starting point for the names of artists. Once an artist has been identified and the patron can specify what medium(s) the artist worked in (painting, sculpture, photography), it becomes a simple matter to check the slide room's holdings. The historical biography section of the collection should always be searched for paintings or photographs of better known personages. Access to materials in this section of the collection is by last name of subject in the painting or photograph.

The slide collection also circulates three special slide sets produced by Instructional Resources Corporation. Each slide set includes a broad range of images so as to permit the slides to be used in conjunction with a variety of presentations. We currently own 'The American History Slide Collection', 'The World History Slide Collection (NonEuropean History)' and 'The Western Civilization Slide Collection' (European emphasis). The sets are filed into large wooden cases and access to the individual slides is possible through individual 'master guides'. Each slide set has a specific master guide with a very broad subject index in the back and captions which may be used as narratives for the images. It is not possible to easily browse through the images themselves, and, as I already mentioned, the subject index is very broad. The slide set covering American history only lists two slides under the subject heading 'Harlem Renaissance'. I checked the subject entries for the two slides identified under 'Harlem Renaissance' and only one of the slides is listed under the other appropriate subject heading. Videotape Collection The videotape collection at Kenyon is a rapidly growing teaching device, faculty often use the collection to supplement lectures as well as a discussion vehicle. Naturally the collection is governed by copyright regulations, outlined in a handout available from the AV Department. Faculty are expected to comply with the governmental regulations and to handle the videocassettes with care. Access to the collection may be either through the 3x5" card catalog in the AV Department or via the on-line catalog. The MARC record for fully cataloged videos includes the same types of tracings as it does for books. It is possible to use the author/title/subject search mode and the limiting devises of the on-line catalog to locate audiovisual materials. However, I favor the use of the keyword mode and the boolean operator 'and'. About one-seventh of the collection is not completely cataloged, that is to say, there is not a MARC record for the individual video titles. It is a little more tricky to locate those materials if you do not know a specific title. Search strategy for materials with MARC record: fi video? and harlem renaissance fi video? and holocaust Search strategy for materials only cataloged by a short record: fi video? and pather (using A WORD from the title) Search strategy for materials on order: fi ultimate swan lake (do not limit by format -- the designation 'video' is made during the cataloging process, not during the ordering process) Laser Disc Collection The Library's collection of laser discs is very small due to the limited playback facilities on campus. The MLL and Music departments are

actively ordering materials on video discs since they have playback capabilities. A limited number of other titles are available, purchased by faculty who arranged to have a laser disc reader temporarily housed in Olin Auditorium. Since the holdings are very small you may search the video disc collection by using the 3x5" card catalog in the AV Viewing & Listening Room or by the following search strategy: fi video disc or fi video disc and music or fi video disc and faerie tale 16mm Film Collection We own a limited number of 16mm films, often titles which are not presently available on video or laser disc format. The 3x5" card catalog in the AV Department has entries for 18 films. If you wish to access the 16mm film collection via the on-line catalog and you know we own a film on dancers you may formulate two different types of searches. Using the first on-line menu try the following strategy: t=four pioneers|m=gm or s=dance|m=gm (this will lead you to a long list of titles on both video and 16mm formats) or s=holm|m=gm (you would need to know which artists were included in the film and hope they were listed in the MARC record) Or use the keyword option and this strategy: fi motion picture and pioneers fi motion picture and dance (you must know title of film)

Filmstrip Collection At present we have only a small collection of filmstrips. Access is either via the 3x5" card catalog in the AV Department or by the online catalog. Search strategy using the on-line catalog would be as follows: fi filmstrip and french literature or fi filmstrip and music

Sound Recordings Collection The sound recordings collection includes almost exclusively spoken-

word recordings, although a few of music audio cassettes were purchased to circulate through the AV Department to non-music faculty. The spoken-word cassettes range in content from excerpts of Chaucer to taped seminars on copyright issues. Music recordings are very limited in scope to the decades of the 1950's and the 1960's. Since the collection is small it is possible to search the 3x5" card catalog in just a few minutes. An effective search strategy for the online catalog would resemble the following: fi sound recording and harlem renaissance or fi sound recording and hamlet Due to early cataloging inconsistencies by the Library of Congress some materials were not earmarked 'sound recording' in their OCLC records. The early materials may be more readily accessed by using the 3x5" card catalog marked 'AUDIO CATALOG' in the Viewing & Listening Room.

Spoken-Word LP Record Collection The library houses a selected collection of spoken-word phonodiscs, both 33 1/3 rpm as well as 75 rpm format. It is primarily a collection of poets and dramatists reading from their works and in several cases, some of the recordings were made at Kenyon in the 1940's. It is a collection which includes many splendid recordings, particularly that of Dylan Thomas's Under Milkwood as read by Richard Burton and others. Naturally, the fragility of the medium and the need for a cumbersome phonograph less desirable. However, it remains a valuable resource accessible via the 3x5" card catalog in the AV Department.

Numbered Microfilm/Microfiche Microfiche No. 141 Prompt Books and Actor's Copies This is a collection of Victoria & Albert Museum prompt books associated with William Poel (1852-1934), James Hackett (18001871), Mrs. Stella Patrick (1865-1940), and the Old Vic Theater (limited to the 1937-1963 seasons) in London. The prompt books, playbills as well as associated photographs are reproduced and are very useful for students in directing and theater history courses. Access to the material (after locating its MARC record) is via an index card file and small guide book. The guide book lists the plays alphabetically under each actor in two categories, 'Shakespeare' and 'Non-Shakespeare'. A collection number (designated 'Ormonde' number) specifies a fiche number for each manuscript or typescript.

Microfiche No. 144 The Dunlap Society The Architecture of Washington, D.C.

This microfiche collection was the pilot project of the Dunlap Society to document all aspects of American art. The microfiche included complete visual documentation of historically significant buildings. Construction drawings, photographic prints and a limited number of graphic prints, etc. all form a part of this visual catalog. Not only are the buildings representative of work designed by important architects, the buildings are associated with much of the 19th & 20th century American social history. Access is via two table of contents and small factual pages on each of the buildings. Microfilm no.89 Witchcraft in New England. Bell & Howell product prepared in cooperation with the Danvers Archival Center, a department of the Peabody Institute of Danvers, Massachusetts. Bell & Howell, 1980. Covers the printed history and interpretation of witchcraft occurrences in New England from 1648 to the end of the first quarter of the 20th century, centering on the outbreak in Salem Village in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1692. The collection includes over 60 works representing some 7,000 pages of information gleaned from the Danvers Archival Center collection. Excluded from the works are fictional works, strictly biographical works and multiple editions, and works that rely too heavily on quotes from already included material. There is a printed index volume that introduces the collection and gives a list of the titles and pages that were microfilmed, an index by reel and number. There is no subject, author, or name index. Microfilm no. 90 Voices from Ellis Island : an oral history of project of the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Collections in American Immigration. General Vecoli) Guide compiled by Nanette Dobrosky.

Frederick, Maryland: University Publications of America, 1990? A collection in two series of 35 titles of nineteenth and twentieth century African American periodical titles. Unfortunately not all titles are cataloged under the series title. An s=Afro-american periodicals search in the OPAC will produce a list that includes all the titles in this series. Microfilm Collections Housed in the Reference Section The Gerritsen Collection of Women's History, 1543-1945. The entire Gerritsen collection consists of monographs and periodicals in many languages covering international women's history and the feminist movement. The basis for this collection is the Gerritsen collection begun in the late 19th century by Dr. Aletta Jacobs (1854-1929) and her husband Carl V. Gerritsen. Dr. Jacob's collection was nearly 2,000 items. The original collection has been moved, supplemented and split a few times and now the largest part of the collection resides at the University of Kansas. The Kansas collection with 4,000 some titles was then supplemented with another 800 titles from the North Carolina collection for this micropublication. Kenyon has purchased the American English and British English language materials and the American and British Periodicals. These include 1237 American and 899 British titles in the language series, and 80 American and 47 British periodical titles. The fiche are housed in the fiche file in the reference area and the roll film will be located in the Microforms room level one Chalmers. Access to the materials is currently through guide which is split into 3 volumes. Volume language series and includes a bibliographic entry index, title index, subject index, and the producer's 1 indexes the listing, main/added chronological index.

Following is a glossary of computer terms for the Summer Institute. With permis sion portions of this glossary have been adapted from the glossary in Crossing the Internet Thres hold: an Instructional Handbook, Library Solutions Press: Berkeley, CA. 1993. Account When you use a particular computer system, you are given an account. Associated with the account are a unique username and a password. When you start to use a system, you type these to show that you are a legitimate user of the system. Adapter card A circuit board that can be inserted into a computer to provide optional functions, such as an interface for a hard disk or additional memory. Address A unique name (or number) identifying a computer user or computer is called an address. Addresses are used in network communications to transmit messages to a particular person or machine. In IP (Internet Protocol) form, it consists of a series of numbers, separated by dots,

which enables a machine in one part of the world to contact another (much like a personal zip code). Also, technical reference to a specific location in a computer's memory. Analog A way of representing data as a continuous, varying signal wave. Anonymous FTP A form of FTP which allows unregistered users access to files. When using, one logs in as anonymous and uses one's Internet address as the password. Archie A database and related programs giving the user information about the contents of various archives. Archive Collections of files related to a particular subject, which are stored on a computer and made available for distributions to the Internet community, usually via anonymous FTP. ARPANet Advanced Research Projects Administration.

Acknowledging its Defense Department origin, also called DARPANET. Article Individual contributions to a Usenet newsgroup which have been given the standard Usenet header. ASCII American Standard Code for Information Interchange. A standard method for encoding characters--"text" files are usually ASCII files. ASCII represents upper and lower case letters, the numerals, and punctuation in 7 bits. Aspect ratio The width to height ratio of an object. The aspect ratio of pixels on a screen affects the screen's ability to represent circles and other images accurately. Backbone A high speed connection within a network which connects shorter (usually slower) branches. The NSFNet is generally considered to be the backbone of the Internet in the U.S. Bandwidth A measure of capacity and speed of the links between computing devices. Measured in kilobits per second (Kbps), megabits per second (Mbps), or gigabits per second (Gbps). Batch file A file that contains a series of operating system commands. Baud rate A measure of transmission speed. Technically the baud rate is the number of times the communication changes state each second. Most

Encryption Any of a number of methods of encoding data to protect it. Escape This is an Internet conundrum. On the Internet, escape is represented as <CTRL> ] or ^] or sometimes <CTRL> ] q . <ALT> X and <CTRL> @ are other common forms. Although described as the "Internet escape key," it is usually a combination of keystrokes. It is not the <ESC> key on the MS-DOS machines and can vary from keyboard to keyboard and would be a separate key on Macintosh. It is commonly used to terminate a session with a remote machine, but determining the exact form as a function of keyboard can vary. HYTELNET provides a guide for various systems and keyboards.
