Libraries FAQ
Section 1.0 Introduction

1.1 What is a FAQ?  

FAQ is an acronym for Frequently Asked Questions (or, as some have
suggested, Frequently ANSWERED Questions), a periodic posting of
information regularly requested on Usenet newsgroups. FAQs posted to
news.answers are archived at
ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/. Hypertext versions of
posted FAQs can be found at:
http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/hypertext/faq/usenet/top.html
The Libraries FAQ arose out of questions asked on soc.libraries.talk
and other library related newsgroups. It is a collection of basic
information regarding libraries and librarianship and an introductory
guide to library resources on the Internet.   
 
1.2 Where can I find the latest version of the Libraries FAQ? 

The Libraries FAQ is posted on the 16th of every other month to
news.answers, soc.answers and soc.libraries.talk. It is archived at:
ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/news.answers/books/   
A continually updated hypertext version of the Libraries FAQ can be
found at the Libraries FAQ Homepage:
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acropolis/1107 
 
1.3 How can I contribute to the Libraries FAQ?
  
 The Libraries FAQ has benefited enormously from the input of its
readers. Your comments concerning updates, additions, or corrections
to the FAQ are always welcome. I would especially like to hear about
important library resources outside the US and Canada. Please send
suggestions to Anthony Wilson (paw@iglou.com).
The Libraries FAQ was created by Steve Bergson
(safran-can@geocities.com). Steve is also the creator of the Medical
Libraries FAQ, http://members.tripod.com/~medlib/mdlbfaq.htm

A complete listing of FAQs posted to news.answers can be found at the
news.answers archive, ftp://rtfm.mit.edu . A more user friendly WWW
FAQ archive can be found at
