                        I.  INTRODUCTION


This guide was compiled primarily for librarians who provide
reference assistance for U.S. Government Documents and contains
Internet sites which may assist in providing reference service for
library patrons who need government information.

A word about gophers; if I know the telnet address and password for
a gopher I have included login instructions.  However, I recommend
you "point your gopher client" to a gopher instead of using telnet. 
This not only facilitates login but is also easier to use.  In
addition, Mosaic and WAIS software is becoming more available and
user friendly.  I have included Mosaic (http) directions when I
know the address and will continue to adapt this guide to emerging
technologies.  Your computing services can provide you with
information on your institution's technical capabilities.

There are a number of gophers which provide pointers to U.S.
Government Gophers.  This is an good method to find federal
information on the Internet.  An excellent collection of U.S.
Government Gophers can be found at  peg.cwis.uci.edu.  Calvin Boyer
of the University of California at Irvine maintains this list which
is the best collection of U.S. Government gophers I have seen.  I
would recommend you add this site to your gopher bookmarks.

Thank you to Raymond Jansen from Tri-C West Library in Cleveland,
Ohio who put together the indexing format for this edition.  I hope
the new format makes it easier to locate specific sites.  Each
edition gets longer as electronic information continues to increase
and I appreciate all of the support and input from other Internet
surfers.

Original funding and research was conducted with the support of
ALA/USIA Fellows Program.  As a Fellow to Dalhousie University,
Halifax, Nova Scotia and the University of New Brunswick, Canada I
conducted a number of workshops on U.S. government information.  I
appreciate the support of the ALA/USIA Fellows Program which
provided the opportunity and time necessary to investigate
electronic government information.

In an effort to bring valuable information to the masses, and as a
service to motivated information compilers, a member of CRAM can help
others unfamiliar with Usenet `publish' their documents for
widespread dissemination via the FAQ structure, and act as a
`sponsor' knowledgable in the submissions process. This document is
being distributed under this arrangement.

We have found these compilations tend to appear on various mailing
lists and are valuable enough to deserve wider distribution. If you
know of an existing compilation of Internet information that is not
currently a FAQ, please contact us and we may `sponsor' it. The
benefits to the author include:

- use of the existing FAQ infrastructure for distribution:
  - automated mail server service
  - FTP archival
  - automated posting

- a far wider audience that can improve the quality, accuracy, and 
  coverage of the document enormously through email feedback

- potential professional inquiries for the use of your document in 
  other settings, such as newsletters, books, etc.

- with us as your sponsor, we will also take care of the 
  technicalities in the proper format of the posted version and 
  updating procedures, leaving you free of the `overhead' to focus on 
  the basic updates alone

The choice of who we `sponsor' is entirely arbitrary. You always have
the option of handling the submission process yourself.  See the FAQ
submission guidelines FAQ in news.answers. 

For information, send mail to <tmp@netcom.com>.
