Internet Resource Directory, Part 2:

Interactive Access (Telnet) Sites of Interest to Educators

version 2:  August 5, 1993

The information in this file is the result of Internet "prospecting" and 
teamwork by 24 eastern Nebraska teachers and 22 teachers and trainers 
from Texas who were enrolled in graduate Internet-based telecomputing 
courses during the Spring 1992 & 1993 semesters at the University of 
Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Texas at Austin.  Much of their 
work for the course entailed exploring different Internet resource sites, 
then writing, fieldtesting, and revising friendly documentation describing 
online resources that they felt to be of value to teachers, trainers, and their 
students.

Below please find information on many Telnet sites.  Please forgive any 
grammatical errors that you find, understanding that some of the authors 
who contributed entries to this document are not native English speakers.  
Also, please remember that Internet sites can change daily, so although 
the entries that you see below were correct and up-to-date when they 
were created and tested, they may not be so when you read them.

**This is NOT meant to be an exhaustive list of all of the sites of use to 
educators**. Rather, it is a beginning of what we hope will be an ongoing 
collaborative effort among telecomputing educators on a larger scale.  We 
invite you to use this, share it with other teachers, amend it, append to it, 
and update it.  We hope that the information that it contains will be useful 
to you.

     site and it is well worth the extra effort.

          Of particular interest were descriptions of special and
     rare book collections found in Section H - Users' Board.  Also
     in this section, were collections of quotations about
     libraries.  This section is fun and not to be missed.

FRIENDLY ADVICE: 

The authors of this document strongly recommend the use of ERIC. It is
simple to login, search and exit. Clear directions are given at the
bottom of each screen. 

Graduate students in Education will find ERIC helpful for doing research.
Since a fee is usually charged for doing ERIC searches in university
libraries, conducting your own searches will save both time and money! 

For help call the ERIC Clearinghouse at 443-3640 
or contact ASKERIC:

SAMPLE LOGIN:   The following is an excerpt from the Science and 
Technology section...

            ABOUT THE SIMULATED SPACE SHUTTLE LAUNCH

   This simulated space shuttle launch is a telecommunication simulation 
designed to assist school students in learning more about the space 
sciences and about telecommunications.

   At the core of the launch is a permanent full-scale mock-up of a space 
shuttle (called the "Centennial") complete with "Mission Control," which is 
located at University School in Shaker Heights, Ohio (Cleveland area).  
During this particular launch student "astronauts" will enter the mock-up 
and fly a very detailed and quite realistic 10 hour mission.  For example, 
Centennial astronauts during this mission have been selected by NASA to 
talk directly via amateur radio with real astronauts in orbit flying shuttle 
mission STS-37.

   Other schools around the country and the world will be taking various 
roles in this simulated mission.  This includes schools in California and 
Finland who will be alternate landing sites (weather stations), and an Ohio 
school which will be serving as a solar disturbance observatory.

Shown 53%, press <SPACE> for more, 'q' to quit, or 'h' for help                                                                                   

Coordination and communications between the shuttle's mission control 
and the other schools is conducted through the Cleveland Free-Net.  
Electronic mail is sent back and forth, hourly reports are posted, even real-
time electronic "chats" occur between mission control and its support 
units.

Of even greater importance, however, each "mission" becomes the 
culmination of weeks of educational build-up.  Classes in science, 
mathematics, even English and reading are geared to the forth- coming 
"launch."  Students construct their own weather instruments and other 
equipment, acquire computer skills, and sharpen organizational skills to 
help them fulfil their part in each mission.

   The contact person for this (April 9th) launch is Bob Morgan 
(ac343@cleveland.freenet.edu)

   The next launch will be a one school-day simulation on May 17th The 
contact person is Linda Delzeit (aa621@cleveland.freenet.edu) 
End of File, Press RETURN to quit                                                                                

FINAL NOTES ABOUT THE CLEVELAND FREENET:

This Telnet site is definitely one of the easiest to log on to, one of the 
easiest to use, and one of themost comprehensive in terms of a variety of 
information available.  So it is a great telnet site for the rookie on the 
Internet as well as a great resource for the veteran user.

                                   Welcome to CARL System
Please identify your terminal,  choices are:   
(You'll see a list of 9)
       * I was successful with both Apple/IBM  and vt100

-You will then be connected to a different site and commands and 
tools will be site specific.  (see listing for CARL)

CARL offers access to the following groups of databases:

               1. Library Catalogs
                       (including Government Publications)
               2. Current Article Indexes and Access
                       (including UnCover and ERIC)
               3. Information Databases
                       (including Encyclopedia)
               4. Other Library Systems
               5. Library and System News

*I found that I could not gain entry to the encyclopedia with my 
ID # or with my bitnet address. As of November 1992 ERIC access 
has been restricted.

FRIENDLY ADVICE:   Within the Euro networks, I found it difficult 
to use the commands that they advised.  Example -down arrow would 
not allow me to maneuver through the documents.  I had to press 
<return (something the computer didn't like , because it squeaked 
at me, but I was able to read all the documentation that way.  
Also "q" and "u" didn't work to leave this site.
	At Most sites the "q" and "u" commands did work.  As of 
spring 1993, the arrow keys or selecting the # and typing <return> 
seemed to work.  
	Some sites do not display the full text of an article. One 
line is displayed at a time after each <return>.  However I had 
success in downloading the file and then reading it.
	Instead of reading a lengthy article, advance at least 2 
pages into the article. At this point, type "q" to quit the 
article. You will be given the option to mail the article, type 
your internet address, and press return. As long as you stay in 
sunic, every time thereafter saves will be automatically to your 
address.
	This site is huge, I suggest if you want to really get a 
feel for the site then go to "1.information about Gopher/" and 
download the site map (33K file).

DESCRIPTION
 
	The  NASA/IPAC EXTRAGALACTIC DATABASE (NED) is a 
research-supported program which conducted at the Infrared Processing 
and AnalysisCenter(IPAC), Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and California 
Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics and 
Space Administration. 
	NED is open to the astronomical community world-wide.  It is an on-
going effort, funded by NASA  to make available over computer 
networks  the rapidly accumulating literature on  EXTRAGALACTIC  
objects.

SERVICES:
	The NED service is made possible by  Science Operations Branch,
astrophysics division, Office of Space Science and Applications, and
National Aeronautics and Space Administration.                            
	This interface connects you to an object-oriented database,  built
around  a master list of  EXTRAGALACTIC OBJECTS  for which  CROSS-
IDENTIFICATIONS of names  have  been  established, ACCURATE 
AVAILABLE POSITIONS  entered and some  BASIC DATA  collected.   
This interface  allows you to search this master list, and retrieve  
BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCES  associated with the objects, 
ABSTRACTS  of  RECENT JOURNAL ARTICLES, and  PUBLISHED 
NOTES.
	This system will respond to simple requests in about 15 seconds;
long lists of objects or references may require 1 to 3 minutes.   This
interface assumes that you have a VT100 terminal, or VT100 emulation. 
(VT102, and members of the VT200 or VT300 series will also work)

NED AT PRESENT
	At present NED contains extensive CROSS-IDENTIFICATIONS for 
over 200,000 objects -- galaxies, quasars, infrared and radio sources, etc. 
NED provides POSITIONS, NAMES, and BASIC DATA (e.g. 
MAGNITUDES, REDSHIFTS), as well as BIBLIOGRAPHIC 
REFERENCES, ABSTRACTS AND NOTES.
	BIBLIOGRAPHIC REFERENCES are provided by SIMBAD for 
1983 to 1989, derived by NED for several journals since January 1990.  
The  ABSTRACTS are collected by NED from several journals since 1988, 
The NOTES are from major catalogs such as the RC1, MCG, Hubble 
Atlas, etc.

SAMPLE LOGIN:

	After login through typing 'ned', a wecome note will show on the
screen.  After you type the 'return' key, there will be three (top, middle
and buttom) boxes shown on your screen.  

	Top  screen contains different search topics.  You can either use
the arrow keys to move up/down and left/right or you can type in numbers.
But don't forget to push 'return' key.  The top menu loos something like:

0:NED News     2:Objects      4:Environment  6:Tutorial    8:Batch Job   

	1:What's NED?  3:Literature   5:Coord Calc   7:Comments   
 
	Middle  screen contains the information you will read under the
category you choose.

	Bottom screen contains the commands those you will be using such 
as:
		^E=Execute           ^H=Help            ^T=Next value 
              	^B=Abort data entry  	RETURN=Next field      
            
	At the beginning of each serach, you will be asked:

	Do you want to get the search result by mail? YES/NO              
         
	E-mail address:  ________________________                         
                              
	Would you like the NED interface HELP files mailed to you? 
	YES/NO

	You can choose to have your search result send to you by mail or
not.  Use ^T (ctrl T) to inverse YES or NO value.  You can type in your
E-mail address and you will receive the result by E-mail.

	After type in the answers, you need to type ^E (ctrl E) to get out
of the question loop and go to the top menu to choose the category you
want to search.

	In each category there are different sub menus for you to do your
search.  You can always use the arrow key to move around. If you want to
go to other category,  ^R (ctrl R) will  take you to the  top menu. And
remember to type the 'return' key.  

 FRIENDLY ADVICE: 
	If you are interested in astronomical objects, you will enjoy this
user-friendly object oriented service.  Make sure you have a specific
research idea ready.  All the results will atuomatically be sent by mail to
you, so you don't have to worry about saving it.  
					
HAVE FUN!

LOGIN SEQUENCE:
                COMPUTER REQUIREMENTS:  Dial in access to ISAAC 
requires you to have an IBM PS/2 or PC, a modem, and communications 
software.  Configure your communications software to emulate 
a VT100 terminal.  I had trouble using the Internet Access, 
so if you are not able to read the entire screen upon entering ISAAC or if 
you are unable to use your arrow keys to select a topic, I suggest you 
access ISAAC directly by dialing 1-800-237-5551 (if inside the local 
Seattle area or outside the United States, call:  1-206-543-3761)

                NOTE:  You must be a subscriber to use ISAAC.  You cannot 
                be a guest.  Therefore, once you are connected to ISAAC, you 
                will be asked to register as a subscriber.  To do this, type 
                "register" in lower case as your access code.  Once you have 
                registered, you will be sent an access code and password by 
                mail in a few days.  Always remember to type your access 
                code and password in lower case!

DESCRIPTION:
                  ISAAC provides information for IBM users about software 
                and hardware for instruction and research in higher educa-
                tion.  ISAAC is funded by IBM and operates at the University 
                of Washington.  Access is free to all faculty, staff, and 
                students currently affiliated with an institution of higher 
                education.  It is possible to access ISAAC via modem or via 
                the Internet computer network.

EXIT SEQUENCE:	          q = Quit
                			Q = Logout

ACCESS COMMANDS:  Single letter commands are used to perform 
                all functions in ISAAC.  Most are lower case, however, some 
                are upper case or require the CTRL (control) key to be 
                pressed in combination with a letter.  Some useful commands 
                are as follows:

                ? = Displays Help
                c = Displays list of commands
                m = Make an entry
                r = Reply to an entry
                e = Edit and update entry
                d = Delete an entry
                s = Save an entry
                S = Send entry to net ID
                z = Search forum
                i = Display information about databases
                + = Select database
                q = Quit
                Q = Logout

                USING THE HOT KEYS
                ------------------
ISAAC's "hot keys" are those command keys used to move you quickly 
from one service to another.  The capital letters F, D, U, and I will take 	  
you from the current screen to the Forums, Databases, Utilities, or 	 
About ISAAC immediately.  The capital Q is enables you to end your 
current ISAAC session from most screens.  Using these hot 
 keys to move through ISAAC will minimize the amount of time 
spent moving through the layers of the system.

 SERVICES:  	ISAAC offers four basic services:  Forums, 
                Databases, Utilities, and About ISAAC.  Each of these serv-
                ices may be selected from the ISAAC Main Menu.

                1)  FORUMS (Press "F") - The forums are ISAAC's "bulletin 
                board", or discussion area where users exchange information.  
                ISAAC's forums contain both general interest and academic 
                discipline topics.  These forums are places where IBM users 
                share ideas and ask questions about computer use in higher 
                education.  There is also a forum (Ask ISAAC) where you can 
                place entries related to your use of ISAAC.

                2)  DATABASES (Press "D") - The databases contain reference 
                information for users to browse and download.  ISAAC's 
                databases contain reference information pertaining to com-
                puter use for instruction and research.  This information 
                includes items such as software descriptions, software 
                reviews, and project descriptions.  The Database List shows 
                you the names of each database on ISAAC.  When you choose 
                Databases, you will see the following list:

  TELNET SITE NAME:

  	Knowbot Information Service
  
  INTERNET ADDRESSES:

  	132.151.1.1  185
 	sol.bucknell.edu  185
  	134.82.1.8  185
  
  DESCRIPTION:
 	Knowbot is an useful information service for locating
someone with an Internet address.  Knowbot does not
have its own "white pages" recording internet users like a 
telephone book. However, Knowbot can access to other
information services that have their own "white pages"
and search for you.   Commands to operate knowbot service 
are easy but not very user friendly to first time users.  
          
  SERVICES:

Knowbot serves as a gateway for internet users in remote hosts by
sending searching commands to find someone in internet, receiving the
searching results and presenting results in a uniform format for the
user.  However, very often the Knowbot search is fruitless, because
of the incomplete information of internet users.

Listed below are remote host accessible to Knowbot.  They all have
their own users information pools.

		to exit Knowbot information system

  	   >[name] 
		to start searching a name of person with internet 
		address

		organization
		e.g. >org University of Illinois

  	   >country [country name]
		to narrow the search service on a specific country
		e.g. >country US
  
  SAMPLE LOGIN:
  	1.  telnet to Knowbot at system prompt
  		systemprompt> telnet nri.reston.va.us 185  
  		
  	2.  specify the organization of the person to be searched
  		> org university of Illinois 
  
  	          and/or you may specify the host service
  		> service nic
  	    
  	3.  type in the name to start searching
  		> krol

     	4.  You may get the following result:

  	  Name:		Ed Krol
  	  Organization:    	University of Illinois
  	  Address:	   	Computing and Communications Service 
			   	Office,195 DCL, 1304 West Springfield

  	5. exit Knowbot	
  	   > quit
  
  FRIENDLY ADVICE:
  	Since there are no complete recordings of all Internet
	users, it is better not to expect to locate every internaut
	through Knowbot.  However, the more you know about 
	the person you want to locate, the easier the searching 
	process, because you can narrow the search by specifying 
	organization, country, or host of the person to be 
  	searched, which will save you a lot of time.

TELNET SITE NAME:	     LIBERTY HIGH

INTERNET ADDRESSES:    	nysernet.org
			     		192.77.173.2
DESCRIPTION:   
	Liberty High is a Collaborative Partnership among 5 High
Schools, 4 Universities, & NYSERNet.  It is designed to help
students "Bridge the Gap" between high school and college by
allowing electronic visits to colleges and providing a BBS for
questions about admission requirements, college life, financial
assistance and other student concerns.
The site serves  as a gateway to on-line admission
information at Cornell, New York University, SUNY
Binghampton, and University of Rochester.  
Ask Liberty Hi functions as a simulated High School
guidance counselor.  Teens can seek answers to
both philosophical and pragmatic questions. Homework 	
questions (facts and statistics) are discouraged.
Menus and prompts are very clear, but because
each University has its own log-in sequences, menus,
services and commands, this site is probably most
appropriate for an intermediate user or a student with an
experienced guide.

SERVICES:      There are two activities available.
                     1. Admissions information for Cornell, New York
                        University, SUNY Binghampton, and University
                        of Rochester.
                     2. Ask Liberty-Hi:  A question and answer format.
                       Postings of previous questions and answers are archived
                       and easily available.  There is a simple key word or 
                       phrase search function. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                    
               Plans are underway to make Liberty Hi a GOPHER interface.

          12. At Main Menu enter 99 to Exit LIBERTY HI

FRIENDLY ADVICE:  This site is most appropriate for students seriously
looking at college. Exploring Liberty High with a guidance counselor could
help students discover the type information that is usually considered
when thinking about college options. Response to posted messages is
thorough and often includes text references for further information.
Questions and answers are posted from most recent to oldest.  This can
make reading slow.  At this writing (April 1993) there are 43 questions
and answers archived.  The most recent is dated December 1, 1992. None 
of my questions were ever answered. Because of this problem, students 
may prefer the University Admissions options. Cornell on-line was easy to 
use and appealing to my students. This is a relatively new project, and
suggestions and ideas for improvement are encouraged.  Schools and
individuals wishing to become more involved can contact Marion French at
mfrench@nysernet.org.

TELNET SITE NAME: 
	The Lorain County Free-Net
	
INTERNET ADDRESSES: 
	freenet.lorain.oberlin.edu
	132.162.32.99
	
DESCRIPTION:  
	  The Lorain County Free-Net is a community based network in 
Lorain County, Ohio.  The major categories for bulletin boards are:  
Business, communications, community, computers, education, 
government, health, libraries and social services. Most of these topics 
have a strong community orientation. Of particular interest is the 
Education Center,  where files from the Academy One project are 
available. Also in this area, you will find several discussions centered on 
telecommunications and education. Overall, the free-net has a fairly easy 
to use menu based interface which makes it quite accessible to the novice 
user.

SERVICES:
	In addition to the discussion areas mentioned above, the registered
user will also have access to Internet Relay Chat, e-mail, telnet and local
library services.

LOGIN SEQUENCE:  
	For new, unregistered users:
	  1. 	  Telnet to the address listed above.
	  2. 	  You will be informed that a connection has been made, and
		that the escape character is ^]. At this point,  it may take the
		system a while to give you a login prompt. If it takes over a
		minute or so, break the connection and try again.
	  3. 	  At the login prompt, type "guest".  *Note: As you will read
		later, telnet connections to the freenet may be rather slow,
		taking up to 15 seconds to echo the characters you type. Be
		patient, and as soon as the complete word is visible, press
		enter.
	  4.	  A password is not needed for guest login, so the first thing
		you see is a screen describing your access privileges. 
		 *Note: At the bottom of the screen, you will be prompted to
		press return to quit. This is a potential point of confusion.
		Pressing return will now cause you to quit the freenet, but
		rather to move on from this screen. Equally ambiguous is the
		next prompt, which appears in the same place as soon as
		return is pressed... now you are asked to press return to
		continue. Do it.
	5.	  You will now see a series of introductory screens. Page
		through these using the spacebar until the system asks you 
		to press return to continue. Pressing return will land you in 
		the main menu.

EXIT SEQUENCE: 
	Enter the letter "x" at any prompt. Usually you will be asked to verify
	your decision to leave the net, but from the main menu the 
	command will be carried out immediately.

ACCESS COMMANDS:  
	  Navigation through the free-net is accomplished with an easy to 
use menu system. On any given menu, the most common commands will 
be displayed by default.  The following are the most useful navigation
commands.

	m	-returns you to the main menu.
	p	-returns you to the previous menu.
	?	-displays a list of commands.
	h	-displays a help file.
	x	-exits the system completely.

  You may move to the different discussion areas in one of two ways.
1. From the menu, enter the number of the area you wish to move to.
2. From the system prompt, type the word "go" followed by a space and
the name of the area to which you wish to move. These area names are
listed on the menus.

	For more detailed help information, type "go help".

SAMPLE LOGIN:
1.  Telnet to freenet.lorain.oberlin.edu or 132.162.32.99
	  You will see the telnet escape message followed by “SunOs Unix
	(freenet) “ and the word "login".
2.  Type the word "guest"
	Use either the enter key or spacebar to navigate through the 
	following screens, as prompted by the system.

FRIENDLY ADVICE:  
	While the Lorain County Free-Net may have important resources 
and an easy to use interface, the telnet user may find it of limited value 
due to the speed of the connection. In each of several sessions in March 
and April, 1993, the system was always *extremely slow*.  Expect to wait 
up to 15 seconds for a single character to echo in the menu seconds, 30 
seconds in the bbs, and pauses of up to 30 seconds during individual 
screen displays.  Once entered, commands take some time to execute, 
particularly in the messaging areas. Occasionally,  you may need to press 
the enter key a second time to begin execution. 
	I am blaming the slow speeds on the telnet connection itself. I made
the long distance call to connect directly with the free-net, and the service
was as fast as could be expected for a 2400 baud modem. The telnet
connections were made at different times of day, from morning to late at
night and on weekends, and the service was slow on each occasion.

      Cyberion City Transporter Receiving Station
      The bright outlines of the Cyberion City Transporter Station slowly
      come into focus.  You have beamed up here from one of the Earth
      Transporter Stations.  You are among the adventurous and moderately
      wealthy few who have decided to visit Cyberion City, the largest
      space city in the solar system.
      Contents:
      Attendant
      Spark
      Obvious exits:
      Information<INF>  
      Tours<T>  
      Out

      <type> INF
      The information officer looks at you and says, "Hello there, Guest1!"
      and directs your attention to the large black screen at the front of
      his desk.  Words are forming there...

Welcome to Cyberion City II. I have several paragraphs of information
 for you.  At the end of each paragraph you may type the number of the
next paragraph to go on.  At any time, tou may reread an old 
paragraph by typing that number instead, or you may type 'Out' to leave 
this room.
      Now type '1' to go on--.

      Read all the information.

GETTING AROUND:
The city is divided into 12 circular sections, numbered 0 to 11.
Each section  is divided into 8 pie wedges, or Arcs, numbered 0 to 7.
If you were to go'out' of Information into the lobby and then'out'
again you would be outside in an area labaled <Sec 0 -Arc 7>.  When
you are outside you can use the four primary directions to move 
around the city: Port<P>, Star<B>oard, <S>pin, and <A>ntispin.  <P> 
takes you one section closer to Sec 0 while <B> takes you one section 
closer to Sec 11.  <S>pin takes you around a section towards a higher 
numbered Arc while <A>ntispin moves you towards a lower numbered 
Arc.

      The Main Transportation Spine (MTS) runs the length of the city and
      is located between Arc 0 and 7.  In several of the Sections a directory
      can be viewed by typing 'look directory' while in the MTS.

FEATURES TO EXPLORE:
       Apart from the role-playing fun, the real areas of interest for
       teachers is Section 1.  Find this by choosing the 'out' exit until
       you are given the Starboard exit option. Type 'b' and you should be
       in section one.  Using the 's' or 'a' commands move yourself to the
       MTS where you can view the Sec 1 directory.  Explore Sec 1 by
       selecting the given exit options and 'look'ing at the items in the
       rooms and buildings you enter.  

Points of interest are: Section 1...
       Arc 2- Science Center -Puzzles, Mathematica
       Arc 7- University Annex- Mathematical Puzzles

HINTS:
       If you lose track of where you are type 'out'.  You will be told
       where you are and be given exit options.  Sometimes the system is
       slow-- just repeat your command.  Finally,  the permanent characters
       are very helpful.  Ask anyone on-line for help.

	NICOL:  JvNCnet Network Information Center On-Line

INTERNET ADDRESSES:
	128.121.50.7	jvnc.net   or  nisc.jvnc.net
	

DESCRIPTION:
	This site is designed to provide full access to information to 
	members of JvNCnet.  Guests have the ability to see the
	information on screen, but are not allowed the ability to mail or
	save the data. JvNCnet stands for John von Neumann Computer
	Network and is located at Princeton University. It maintains a 
	direct connect to the NSFnet. I would categorize this site as 
	very user-friendly. 

	This telnet site has a great deal of information, however, there 
	are many references to the anonymous ftp portion of the network.
	Most of the files visible at the telnet site may only be obtained
	via the ftp connection. I consider the telnet site to be a 
	sampler of the ftp site.  (ftp nisc.jvnc.net  login: anonymous
	password: your e-mail address, cd to "nicol".)

	One major section of the telnet site that is beneficial to educators
	is the section which contains an online, full text version of
	Meckler's Electronic Information Service (called MC(2) ). All
	documents are keyword searchable.  Areas of interest include
	Libraries, CD-ROM, Database, Networking, Multimedia, and Virtual
	Reality. All the documents are copyrighted, but "copying is
	permitted for non-commercial use by computer conferences, 
	individual scholars, and libraries."

SERVICES:
	The main services are mentioned above. However, there was 
mention of the conversion of this site to a gopher format.  The new 
address for this service is  telnet gopher.jvnc.net  with a login  "gopher".

LOGIN SEQUENCE:
	1.  At the system prompt, type:  telnet 128.121.50.7
	2.  At the login prompt, type:	nicol
	3.  Enter the terminal type  (vt100 is the default)
	
EXIT SEQUENCE:
	There are two ways to exit the system.
	1.  Select  "Exit NICOL"  from the Main Menu; or
	2.  Enter the exit command,  ^]

ACCESS COMMANDS:
	Navigation is accomplished by use of the arrow keys or by the
	selection of the desired command at the bottom of most screens.
	Use the return key to enact your selection.

SAMPLE LOGIN:
	The login process is very simple and has been described above.
	Following the login sequence, you are presented with the main
	menu screen which looks like the following:

Welcome to the JvNCnet Network Information Center On-Line (NICOL)
NICOL is designed for use by members of the JvNCnet community as 
well as the rest of the Internet community.

	   >Basic Help Information
	    About NICOL
	    Internet Resources
	    JvNCnet Information
	    MC(2)-Meckler's Electronic Publishing Service
	    Exit NICOL

---There is a message the appears at the bottom of this main screen
indicating the suggestion to connect to NICOL using the gopher
service.  I also recommend this.  At your system prompt, type
telnet gopher.jvnc.net        The login will be  gopher   .

FRIENDLY ADVICE:
	Consider obtaining membership in JvNCnet in order to obtain
	e-mail and saving capabilities. Otherwise, you should use the ftp 
	site to obtain the files.  Also, look into the gopher version of
	NICOL.  The gopher interface is easier to maneuver through.

The PARADISE directory is a straight forward, logical program with easy 
to follow prompts.  PARADISE is not case sensitive and will attempt to find
the closest match from the information given.  If you feel you need help
anywhere along the way, type "?" for an explanation of your operations 
and options at that point. In addition, there are 19 specific keywords (listed
below) to get help on a particular topic. Type ? followed by your desired
keyword. Keywords may be abbreviated -- as suggested in the 
parentheses following the keywords.

WELCOME (wel)      The initial WELCOME message
WILDCARDS (wild)    Use of WILDCARDS

If you want to get a feel for using PARADISE, a good way to start is to
type "?ex1" at the NAME prompt.  This will give you a simple introduction
and example on how to conduct your search.  For a more detailed sample,
type "?ex2".

When entering your desired request - NAME, DEPARTMENT, 
ORGANIZATION, COUNTRY- exact input is not required.  For example, in 
the COUNTRY prompt a simple two letter abbreviation such as "gb" for 
Great Britain will do. Typing "germ" or "deut" are sufficient to identify 
Germany.  In the DEPARTMENT prompt, "french" will match "French 
Language & Literature." For ORGANIZATION, simply typing "ucl" will 
suffice for "University College London." 

When you are inputting a NAME, various formats may be used.  For 
example, Angelou, M Angelou, Maya Angelou.  You may type "Angel" and 
PARADISE will try to find an exact match.  If none are found, the program 
will search for variations.  Even if you misspell names PARADISE will 
attempt to find the closest match for your input. 

Wildcards are very useful tools to use if you are not sure of your input
statistics. At any of the four major request prompts, an asterisk "*" will
list or search all entries of a specified type, depending on the context. 
Four other wildcard formats are valid -- 
lou* 	matches entries with names beginning with the string "lou"
*lou*	matches entries with "lou" contained anywhere in the string
*lou	matches entries with names finishing with "lou"
lou*rep matches entries with a name finishing with the string "lou" and
	ending with the string "rep"

The less specific your input, the more matches the program will return. 
Thus, if you are uncertain about any aspect of your input, approximations
will reap more options and increase your chances of finding your desired
information. For example, a DEPARTMENT match request typed 
"computing science" may deliver to you a "no department match" 
response.  Whereas, typing "comp" will give you the options "Computer 
Science" or "Computerized Tomography". 

Instead of having to answer the four prompts regarding your search
request, PARADISE has included what it calls UFN (User Friendly 
Naming). 
You can specify all the details of your query at the first prompt.  For
example: john, univ los angeles, calif, us; OR ucl, gb;  OR derian, law,
univ, amer.  Name parts are separated by commas and you do not have to
specify how many components are in each search.  PARADISE will 
attempt a variety of searches to match your input.  If more than one match 
is found as the search progresses, you will be asked to select one entry 
from possible matches. 

PARADISE allows you to enter or adjust various values associated with 
the terminal. You may modify:

termtype	The user's terminal type
invvideo	Prompts in inverse video if possible
cols		The width of the user's screen in columns 
lines		The depth of the user's screen in lines

To change your terminal settings, type "?SET" at a prompt.  The screen
shows you the current settings then asks if you want to change any. 
Type "y" for yes. "Enter name of variable you wish to modify"
will appear.  You respond to the prompts and the variables will update
immediately with your specifications.  PARADISE recognizes an
astonishing 373 different terminal types!  Paradise firsts lists the 
five most common terminal types.  These are:
tvi950	televideo950
vt100		decvt100
vt240		t240 7 bit auto-margin 
wyse		Pyramid Wyse Console 
xterms	xterm terminal emulator (small) x window system

PARADISE then lists the other 368 terminal types the system recognizes. 
They run the gamut from "any ansi terminal with pessimistic
assumptions" to "volker-craig 404 w/standout mode and no arrow keys".
Surely, your particular terminal type will be listed!

PARADISE generally searches your request very quickly.  However, if the
networks and/or computers running PARADISE are heavily loaded, or 
your information has many wildcards, it may take some time for queries to 
be resolved.  If after 30 seconds your query has not been answered the
following message will appear:
	This operation is taking some time. 
	Control-C, if you wish to abandon the operation.

LOGIN SEQUENCE:    
      Username:    PNOTPA

DESCRIPTION:	PENPages is provided by the College of Agriculture at 
Pennsyvania State University and contains information on local and 
national agriculture as well as current educational issues.  Of special 
interest to the educators are the MAPP and SENIORS SERIES 
databases.  MAPP is the National Cooperative Extention family database.  
It supports family educators and Extention professionals around the world.  
The SENIORS SERIES provides information on the concerns of the aging 
and the elderly.

EXIT SEQUENCE:  From the PENPages menu, type 0 and hit return.  
When you see the prompt,  local>     type LOGOUT. You may also need to 
physically "break" the telephone connection.  ( by computer command, 
turning off the computer, or literally unplugging the phone, or however your 
computer setup dictates.)

ACCESS COMMANDS:
	This service is especially nice as it has an on-site tutorial to go 
through before you enter for information. It is not mandatory, just helpful. 
Menus are clearly numbered for easy reading and selection. 

There are two basic commands used in PENPages menus. They are: 
	Control-B = Go back/ back to main menu
          	Control-E = Exit current menu

SERVICES:
The following informational services available on the PENPages network 
are easily accessed by choosing the number of the category you have 
interest in pursuing.  The categories are:

 1.  How to use PENPages
 2.  Recent changes
 3.  Recent changes- Market news
 4.  PENPages Announcements
 5.  MAPP- National Family Database
 6.  International Food and Nutrition Database
 7.  Senior Series Database
 8.  Ag-Sat  (Agricultural programming via satellite)  
 9.  Rutgers (Univ. New Jersey)- agriculture news

HELPFUL HINT:  Some of the commands say to use the "GOLD" key or 
the PF keys.  Make sure your keypad has been redefined to give you 
those functions.

DESCRIPTION:	Rutgers University Pilot Campus Wide 
Information System is an excellent telnet site with a 
wide range of information services available for the 
user.  Extensive information about the workings of 
Rutgers University campuses and services, faculty, 
students, communities, and New Jersey are available, as 
well as an apartment finder, an Internet Library, a 
dictionary, thesaurus, the CIA world factbook, and a 
quotations database.  And much, much more.  The more you 
look, the more you find!

EXIT SEQUENCE:	from the Main Menu, type <quit> and 
then <return>.  Get to the Main Menu from any submenu by 
typing <quit> and then <return>.  Type <q> and <return> 
to get out of currently running information systems and 
back to the submenus.

ACCESS COMMANDS:
Rutgers Campus Wide Information System uses a 
series of menus to direct you.  Some convenient 
commands at all higher menu levels are:

   Previous   	Return to previous menu
   Find       	Search for keywords for Goto command
   Source     	Age and provider of Information.  Where to

   Help       	Type ? after you are in one of the 
              		information systems.

Information options and access directions are displayed 
at each Menu after making your choice.  Type the word or 
phrase listed in the Menu and follow it with a <return>.

**Note:  The <Find> command is largely useless because the 
keywords you search for are for the <Goto> command, which 
cannot be used without a user id.**

EXAMPLE OF LOGIN:

1.  At the Main Menu,        type    Library    to get to the 
                                                library sub-menu.
2.  At the Library Menu,     type    Reference  to get to the 
                                                on-line reference library.
3.  At the Reference Menu,   type    Familiar   to get to the 
                                                familiar quotes database.
4.  Now you are in the database, and will be prompted for a 
    word to begin your search.
    At the prompt word:      type    Mead       to look for 
                                                instances of the word
                                                'mead' or the name 'Mead' in a 
                                                quotation. 
5.  From the list of selections that appears, you may select the one you
    wish to see in more detail.
    At the prompt word:      type    Mead1      to show the text you have
                                                selected.

To exit from the database, hit <return>.  Typing <previous> 
or <quit> will not work from this screen.

HIGHLIGHT:
The online reference material would be excellent as a 
challenge or as an aid to learning.  How the dictionary 
offers so many variations of looking at the word 
instantaneously would truly encourage any age learner.

DESCRIPTION:
	SERVICES is an excellent information gateway which provides 
access to many other telnet sites across the world (153 as of February 
1993).  Access to these sites can be gained by menu selection.  
Therefore, in most cases, the user can visit several sites without 
reconnecting through the telnet prompt. However, it is important to note 
that not each site may be exited gracefully, in which case use of the ^] will 
return the user to the telnet prompt. This site eliminates the need to know 
hundreds of other site addresses since they can all be accessed through 
SERVICES menus. 
	In addition to allowing menu access to many sites, SERVICES also
provides a brief description of each site which includes the direct telnet
address of the site, login and exit information, and the email address of
the contact person for the site.  This is an especially valuable aspect of
SERVICES, for it provides the user with a "mini resource guide" to many
other telnet sites.  Furthermore, it allows the user to connect directly
to a site at a later time because it provides the direct telnet address.
	The main menu provides 10 different choices.  The selections
available are: 
		1)  About Washington University Services
		2)  Washington University Services
		3)  United States Libraries
		4)  Foreign Libraries
		5)  Government Libraries and Public Accessible Databases 
		6)  Campus Wide Information Systems
		7)  All Services
		8)  Recent Additions
		9)  Weather Forecast for US/Canada
               10)  QUIT the Washington University SERVICES program

	Each of the choices 2-9 contain additional menus which allow
connection to the other sites that are available through SERVICES.  Below 
is a brief summary of what can be found under each of the choices from
2-9.  The educational possibilities for this site are virtually unlimited
since it provides access to "everything under the sun".  However, it is
important to note that public access is not permitted to every site listed
in SERVICES.  Some sites may require that an account be applied for in
advance.  Application information is generally provided in the description
of the site when required.
	
Choice 2-Washington University Services:

	This menu allows access to four computing facilities at Washington
University in St. Louis, MO.,  where the SERVICES site is located.  The
four menu choices are as follows:
		1)  Washington University Olin Library
		2)  Washington University Medical Library
		3)  Washington University Medical Computing Facilities
		4)  Washington University Computing Facilities Gandalf 
	The first menu choice, Olin Library, is available for public
access.  Login information is provided in the description, which should be
noted before the user connects. Procedures for use of the library catalog
are given upon connection. 
	The second and third choices are identical.  Both provide a list
of destinations on the MCF (Medical Computing Facilities) dataswitch as
follows:  CATALOG, TERNION, CRC, CONTENT, MEDLINE, NEWS.  
Although not specified in the description, the user must know these 
destination codes in order to login.  Upon connection the following prompt 
will appear:

		PLEASE ENTER DESTINATION CODE>

At this point, the user must enter one of the above destination codes,
which are not displayed on the login screen.  So, it is important to write
these down before connecting.  Of these destinations, only CATALOG 
AND TERNION may be accessed by the public.  The remainder require 
accounts on the system.  Upon exiting any of these destinations, the user 
will again be given the following prompt: 

		PLEASE ENTER DESTINATION CODE>

The only way to disconnect is to be "timed-out", which takes one minute. 
At this point, the SERVICES menu system will reappear.  This was the 
most confusing part of this menu, because no explicit destination code or
"time-out" instructions were given. 
	Finally, the fourth choice on the menu, Washington University
Computing Facilities Gandalf Switch, has no information available in the
description, and is not available for public access. 

Choice 3- United States Libraries:

	This selection provides a menu which includes 38 states.  After
choosing a state on the menu, a new menu will list the college and
university libraries that are accessible in that state.  For example, if
the user chooses Illinois from the United States Libraries menu, the
following choices will appear: 

	1) University of Illinois  Chicago Library
	2) Northwestern University Library
	3) University of  Illinois  Urbana-Champaign Library
	4) University of Chicago Library

Choosing a specific library from the list, will connect the user to that
library.  From this point the user must follow the directions that are
specific to the particular site.  It is *very* important to read the login
and exit instructions provided by SERVICES *before* connecting, as some
libraries do not provide these instructions on their login screen.  Also,
some libraries may not connect through the SERVICES site.  However, by
using the telnet address given in the description, the user may still
connect directly. 

Choice 4-Foreign Libraries:

	This is very similar to choice 3 except that the main menu
provides a choice of eight foreign countries. The countries connected to
the site are Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, the
Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.  After choosing a country from the
menu, a new menu will appear which lists the college and university
libraries that are accessible in that country.  Choosing a specific
library from the menu will connect the user to that library.  From this
point the user must follow the directions that are specific to the
particular site.  It is *very* important to read the login and exit
instructions *before* connecting, as some libraries do not provide these
instructions on their login screen.  Through reading the instructions
provided by SERVICES, the user can find out very helpful information.  
For example, some libraries provide for English-speaking users, such as 
the Inter University (Israel) library.  Others, such as the University of
Konstanz (Germany), only provide for use in German.  Be sure to read
carefully, before embarking into the foreign libraries!  Finally, some
libraries may not connect through the SERVICES site.  However, by using
the telnet address given in the description, the user may still connect
directly through the telnet prompt. 

Choice 5-Government Libraries and Public Accessible Databases

	The following menu is displayed upon choosing this selection:

			1)  FDA BBS
			2)  Library of Congress Cataloging
                        3)  Life Sciences Network
			4)  NASA Database
			5)  NASA Extragalactic Database
			6)  Netfind Server
			7)  Science and Technology Information System
			8)  Sonoma Library
			9)  Compuserve
			

   	Of the choices on this menu, Life Sciences Network, Sonoma 
Library, and Compuserve, all require accounts on their systems in order to 
connect.  Instructions for obtaining accounts are provided in the 
description of each site.  The other sites can be accessed, but care must 
be taken to read the first screen of information that appears when making 
a selection. This contains the login sequence that must be followed after 
the connection has been established.  For example, the password NSSDC 
must be used to access the NASA Database. 
	These sites provide free access to a wealth of government and
scientific information.  For example, the FDA BBS contains up-to-date
findings of the FDA.  Items such a new product releases, weekly recall
lists, drug and product approvals, and veterinary medicine news can all be
found through this BBS.  The NASA sites provide scientific databases, as
well as, CD ROM listings for science, and question and answer "sessions". 
The Netfind Server allows users to find information about internet users
through matching names and approximate locations. 

Choice 6-Campus Wide Information Systems

	This selection provides a menu which includes 15 college and
university campuses across the United States.  A choice of one of the
campuses will connect the user to a database which contains information
about that campus.  Typical information that can be found in the 
databases are general campus information, tours of the campus, class 
schedules, current events, phone directories, faculty listings, job postings, 
and crime reports.  Several of the college databases require the use of 
PF# keys to operate their menu system.  If this poses a problem with your
computer, it would be a good idea to email the contact person listed in
the description to find out which keys act as the PF# keys, so that you
can better operate the menus.

Choice 7-All Services

	This selection provides a 153 choice menu which is the master list
of every site that can be accessed through SERVICES.  This list 
*includes* sites listed in other menus on SERVICES. However, this menu 
arranges the sites in alphabetical order.  This would be the best menu to 
use on SERVICES if the user knows a specific name of a telnet sight and 
merely wants connection information.  Commands at the bottom of the 
screen are given so that the user may 'browse' through the listing .  These 
commands are as follows: j to move down, k to move up, l to right, or h to 
move left.  In addition, the arrow keys will serve the same purpose.  In 
order to move quickly through the list, the user may use a built in "go to"
function. By simply typing the number of one of the menu choices and
pressing enter, the user will "go to" that menu selection.  Again, the
user is provided with a brief description of each site, the login and exit
instructions, and the direct telnet address for each site listed.  These
instructions should be noted carefully *before* connecting to the site. 

Choice 8-Recent Additions

 	This contains the sites most recently added to the SERVICES 
system.  These sites may also be found in the alphabetical listing under 
Choice 7, All Services.  Currently, in the Recent Additions menu , there 
are twenty-one sites listed.  Among the sites are FEDIX, Rutgers CWIS,
Cleveland Freenet, Science and Technology Information System, 
PENpages, Geographic Server, SpaceLink, and NASA Extragalactic 
Database.  After selecting a site from a menu, care must be taken when 
the first screen of information appears.  This contains the login sequence 
that must be followed after the connection has been established. If you 
would like your telnet sight to become a "recent addition" to SERVICES, 
there is a contact person listed in main menu Choice 1, About Washington 
University SERVICES. 

Choice 9- Weather Forecast for US/Canada

	When this selection is chosen from the services main menu, the
message "no information on this site is available" appears.  Don't let
this deter you from this site.  It is actually very user-friendly and
provides a great deal of useful weather information.  Selecting (c) to
connect from the SERVICES menu and pressing <enter> for the Weather
Underground menu will cause the following choices to appear (no login or
password is necessary): 
                                       
		WELCOME TO THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND

			1)  U.S. Forecasts and climate data
			2)  Canadian Forecasts
			3)  Current weather observations
			4)  Ski conditions
			5)  Long-range forecasts
			6)  Latest earthquake reports
			7)  Severe weather
			8)  Hurricane Advisories
			9)  National Weather Summary
                       	10)  International data
                       	11)  Marine Forecasts and Observations
		        	X)  Exit program
		        	C)  Change to scrolling to screen.
                        	H)  Help
		        	?)  Answers to all your questions
 
	Each of the choices above provides the user with other menus.  By
using these menus and the on -screen directions, it is quite easy to get
around.  The Help facility is readily available at all times, adding to
the ease of use of this site.  Each of the choices provides useful
information.  For example, option 1, U.S. Forecast a nd climate data,
provides the forecast for many cities in the United States.  It also
provides record high and low temperatures, and rainfall information.  The
forecast for a city can be easily found by typing in a three digit code
for the city.  The codes for the cities can be found by typing in the two
digit code (ie. postal code) for the state where the city is located. 
Also, the Ski Conditions choice provides snowfall and climate data for
most major ski areas in the United States. 

EXIT SEQUENCE:  When in the SERVICES menu system, a command of 
(u) will return the user to the previous menu.  The (u) choice should be 
used until the main SERVICES menu appears.  The choice of (10) on the 
main menu will allow exiting from the SERVICES site.  Also, the user may 
quit from any menu in SERVICES by pressing (q).

Each site that can be reached from SERVICES has its own sequence of 
exit commands.  These commands are usually given in the description of 
the site on SERVICES, or on the login screen at the site.  Since it is 
virtually impossible to remember every exit command for a particular site, 
the user of the site should take extreme care to write down the necessary
information.  However, "emergency" exits can be made from most sites by
pressing CONTROL ], which will return the user to the telnet prompt. 

ACCESS COMMANDS:  The SERVICES site itself is quite easy to use.  
The selections are all menu driven.  The only thing to watch for is the use 
of carriage returns.  When making a menu selection, the number of the 
choice needs to be typed, followed by a carriage return.  To actually enter 
the choice, another carriage return should be used.  It is also an option to
use the arrow keys to move to a menu item, and then press the carriage
return to actually enter that menu. 

Carriage returns however, are not required when choosing from 
commands that are displayed at the bottom of the screen.  Below is a list 
of these commands: 

 h:LEFT  j:DOWN   k:UP  l:RIGHT  u:PREVIOUS MENU  ?:HELP  q:QUIT 
	
The LEFT, DOWN, UP and RIGHT, keys work in the same manner as the 
arrow keys on a computer.  Either set of keys will work for menu selection.  
On some computers the LEFT, DOWN, UP, and RIGHT keys may not 
function. However, the arrow keys will suffice.
	
After making a menu selection, the user has the following two choices:
	
 			(c) Connect to the system or
			(u) Return to the previous menu

SAMPLE LOGIN:   	After logging onto the site, the following screen 
			appears: 

		1)  About Washington University Services
		2)  Washington University Services
		3)  United States Libraries
		4)  Foreign Libraries
		5)  Government Libraries and Public Accessible Databases 
		6)  Campus Wide Information Systems
		7)  All Services
		8)  Recent Additions
		9)  Weather Forecast for US/Canada
		10)  QUIT the Washington University SERVICES program 

Typing in a number followed by a carriage return will cause a
'highlighter' to mark the appropriate selection.  In order to actually
'enter' the selection, a second carriage return must be used.  For
example, typing in 3 <return> <return> will cause the submenu associated
with United States Libraries to appear on the screen.  Below a partial
listing of the menu for United States Libraries is displayed: 

		1. Alabama			20. Nebraska
		2. Arkansas			21. Nevada
		3. California			22. New Hampshire
		4. Colorado			23. New Jersey
		5. Delaware			24. New Mexico
		6. Florida			25. Georgia

The menu has a two column format.  In order to move through the menu
either the arrow keys, or the keyboard commands listed at the bottom of
the screen, can be used . In order to see a listing of libraries connected
to the system in Nebraska, the user should type in 20 <return><return>.  A
menu will then appear with the libraries that can be accessed.  After
selecting one of the numbers from this menu, the user will be given two
choices, either
			(c) Connect to the system or
			(u) Return to the previous menu

These two choices should not be followed by a carriage return.  Just 
pressing the 'c' or 'u' key will provide the required result.   

HELPFUL HINTS:

When the user makes a selection from the menu, on-screen directions will
be provided as to how to login to the site (in most cases).  These
directions need to be followed in order to successfully connect to a site. 
These directions are only provided once.  Care should be taken to write
down any relevant information as it is quite frustrating to try to guess
how to login to a particular site. 

Some of the sites do not give directions on how to login.  They simply ask
for passwords.  These are the sites that require accounts in order to be
used.  For most of these sites however, SERVICES provides information 
in the description as to how to obtain an account.

When choosing to connect to a site, the direct telnet address is also
given.  If the user is going to access a single site, it is recommended
that they connect right to the site rather than going through SERVICES
since this can be faster. 

If you have not guessed it already, this site is enormous.  It is
virtually impossible to 'explore' every option.  This guide was written to
provide an outline of the main features of the SERVICES menus, so that
users of the site will be able to easily access its wealth of information.

TELNET SITE NAME:  	SpaceMet Internet.  
		(Located at the University of Massachusetts, Amhurst)

INTERNET ADDRESSES:  spacemet.phast.umass.edu
      				128.119.50.48

DOCUMENT AUTHOR:	Denny Hanley; revised by Bob Avant

LOGIN SEQUENCE:  Begin the telnet session.  When connected, press 
<return> again--this seems to speed up the login process.  This site uses 
the MAXIMUS software system and it must "load up" before use.  When 
you first logon to this site you will be asked to register as a new user.  This 
will involve completing a series of questions. You will need to give your 
name and provide a password of at least 6 letters or combination of letters 
and numbers.  You will only have to do this the first time you logon.  Be 
sure to select an appropriate password and take special note of it.  From 
this point on when you login, you are prompted to give your full name and 
then your password. 

DESCRIPTION:  SpaceMet Internet is an online service for educators and
students who are interested in space, and space related topics.  There is
much to be explored at this site and it is very easy to use. 

EXIT SEQUENCE:  The emergency exit is the standard control-] ( ^] ). 
Otherwise, you will be able to locate the logoff keystroke command (G for
Goodbye) on the various menus. 

ACCESS COMMANDS:  This service is EXTREMELY user friendly.  The 
entire system is menu driven.  When you first logon, you are presented 
with the Bulletin Menu which displays new or timely information.  This 
seems somewhat strange at first because one of the listed options is to go 
to the Main Menu.  As of this writing, the Bulletin Menu has 10 options
described.  They are: 

	U) USA Today News *** New Feature ***
	5) Five College/WMass Public School Partnership Events
	F) Five College Calendar of Events
	D) 5C/5E Spring-Summer '93 Information - space still available
	A)ppeal for SpaceMet Monetary Contributions
	H)elp on using SpaceMet
	C)urrent workshops, courses, lectures, etc.
	M) MESTEP Questionnaire - for MESTEP Project participants only
	R)edisplay Bulletin Menu
	Q)uit  (go the the Main Menu)

Of those, the ones that are most useful are the USA Today News, Help on
using SpaceMet, and Quit (to go the the Main Menu).  The 'USA Today' is 
a collection of summaries of articles and are filed by topic.  This give you
a thumbnail sketch of what is going on in the world in the various
subject areas.  'Help' provides you with help. (Surprise!).  To get to the
Main Menu, press Q. 

Although there are 14 listed options in the Main Menu, there are four main
sections.  These are
	M)essage Areas ...  read/enter public/private messages. 	
	F)ile Areas...   get/receive software and other files. 	
	C)hange Setup...  change your personal information.
	D)atabase Menu ... locate and view stored information.

	In the MESSAGE section you'll notice it's divided into several
content "areas" including 'For Kids & Schools', 'For Teachers', 'National
echomail', and 'K12Net'.  Each of these areas has many specific sub 
areas. There should be something for everyone.  One note, there are 
several opportunities to enter a 'chat' mode.  This carries advantages as 
well as disadvantages. 

	The FILE section contains a large listing of text and other files. 
The subjects are very broad and include such topics as:  general help and
how-to's; educator contact lists; files which list astronomy and space
bbs's; files which list Internet sites for science teachers; and *much*
more.  Think of the file section as a big library of software grouped into
several areas. 

	The CHANGE SETUP section is for general housekeeping.  You 
can change all of your account information including your password.  
Other settings may be customized here. 

	The DATABASE section is an *extensive* collection of 
downloadable files of all types. These are categorized into content topics 
of Text files, Software, Course Materials, Physics, For Teachers, Energy,
Plant/Insect Ecology, Streams-Earth Environment, Atmopsphere
Environment, several K12 topics, and others.  As with any large database,
there is a search and retrieval system.  This one has a lot of help
screens. The Database section is a rich source for educators and 
students. 


SERVICES:  All services are accessed through menu selection screens.  
A short description of each is provided online.  They include: 
 
	MESSAGE
	Some of the basic commands in the Message Area are:

A (AREA CHANGE) Lets you select another message area.  Type "?" to 
see a list of available areas (there are over 100 of them!). Type the code 
to move directly to another area. 

L (LIST-brief) Gives a summary of messages in the message area.  

	FILES

	Some of the basic commands in the File Area are:

A (AREA CHANGE) Lets you select another file area.  Type "?" to see a 
list of available areas.  You may also type a number immediately following 
the "?" to move directly to another area. 

F (FILE TITLES) Lists files available in the current file area.  If the
file is new since your last call, you'll see an asterisk "*" next to the
date uploaded. 

V (View text file) Displays a text file on the screen.  This only works
with text files. 

D (DOWNLOAD) A file will be sent to you, provided your software 
supports this.  The system supports Xmodem, K-Xmodem, Zmodem,and 
others.  It DOES NOT support ASCII.  If your software only does ASCII file 
downloads try the T)ype command and capture the file in a buffer. 

L (LOCATE)  Lets you locate a file based on a short sequence of 
characters.   THIS COMMAND SEARCHES ALL FILE AREAS, NOT JUST 
THE CURRENT AREA.

	Hint:  If you are new to computers or to modem communication, the
main thing for you to do is RELAX.  You cannot harm any of the 
equipment.  So DON'T worry!

Enter your terminal type, or ? for help                      vt100nkp

You have selected  vt100nkp .  Use the arrow keys that are NOT on the 
numeric keypad.  Use the following keys for larger cursor movement  
(*Note* I had difficulty trying to find a terminal choice that would work 
successfully):
 
  ^U=PgUp    ^D=PgDn    ^T=Home    ^B=End

If you find that every time (or sometimes) when you press an arrow key, 
STIS act like you pressed ESC, you may have to use
     vt100nes

USEFUL FILES:  	I found that the grant and new program files were very 
interesting.  I could only find them after I FTP’d for the index though.  Also, 
there were some interesting press releases regarding congressional 
funding.  Lastly, there are some curriculum research files that were 
interesting.  All files indicate whether they are Binary or ASCII.

The following are some observations, and cautions.

1.    	This is NOT very user friendly.  I finally did a topic search by using 
the “FILTERS” option. 	
	When you call up the topic menu you see a list of numbers as all 
government documents are assigned a file number. 

2.	If you have access to FTP access that to get the index through:
		login: anonymous
      		password:  your email address

		retrieve ftpindex 	
This contains a list of files available on STIS and additional instructions.

3.	Even if you have a keypad on your keyboard you may have to 
experiment with the choice of keyboard.

4.	The announcement requesting information on how people have 
been doing searches indicates to me that those who set up the system 
understand that there are problems to be worked out.  Be patient.  User 
Beware. This is NOT for the feeble-hearted.

5.	This location seemed friendlier as an FTP site than a telnet site.  It 
will improve when the topic search capability is improved.

       TELNET SITE NAME: TC FORUM

       INTERNET ADDRESS: tcforum.unl.edu
                         129.93.80.233
    
       DOCUMENT AUTHORS: Nancy Paben and David Anderson
               
       DESCRIPTION:  TC Forum is designed to serve the educational
       needs in the State of Nebraska, and is owned and operated by
       Teachers College, University of Nebraska, Lincoln.  Its purpose
       is to encourage and promote the free exchange and discussion
       of educational information, ideas, and opinions.  To promote
       its purposes, national and international discussion groups
       may be found in the Mail Conference and in the Files and Pro-
       grams collection, articles can be "downloaded" to your personal
       computer.      
   
       EXIT SEQUENCE:
            G)oodbye and Q)uit are the more common commands to return 
       to the Main Menu from wherever in the program, at which point
       you will G)oodbye and Log off.  Reading the instructions at 
       the bottom of the screen will alleviate most problems.
        
       ACCESS COMMANDS:
            The command system is "user friendly".  Read carefully 
       the commands at the bottom of the screen as they change de-
       pending on the area in which you are operating.  At most
       places one can type H)elp and receive specific information
       for the particular area where you are in the system.

       SERVICES AVAILABLE:
             At the MAIN MENU choices of interest are listed.
       Those frequently selected are B)ulletin\Newsletter, F)iles,
       H)elp, M)ail,and T)utor. 
      
          B)ulletin\Newsletter:  Entering L)ist here will list all of
       the bulletins available.   
   
          F)iles:  Type L)ist to see the files available in the File
       Menu.  As this subsystem permits the moving of files between
       TC Forum and your system follow the on line instructions for
       the downloading procedure.

          H)elp:  This is an option that can accessed from most all
       locations throughout the system.  Reading this will ease
       most of your immediate problems.

          M)ail:  This is probably the major option of the system.
       With over 80 groups making this option their base, the choices
       are unlimited.  They range from "Kids to Age 13";"Foreign 
       Language Echos"; to USA-Europe Link Support echo.

          T)utor:  This option is quite lengthy and should be scanned
       by all that use the system.  It is especially excellent for
       those that are novices or for those that intend to make use of
       all parts of the system. 

       LOGIN SEQUENCE:
      
            1.  Telnet to tcforum.unl.edu or 129.93.80.233
     
            2.  Once connected you will be asked your FIRST NAME.
                Respond appropriately. You will then be asked for
                your last name. Again respond. 
           
            3.  The system will then "Check Users" and state "User
                not found" and will ask if you are indeed (Your Name)?
                You type Y)es.
              
            4.  You will then be asked for your residence, CITY and 
                STATE.  Respond appropriately.

            5.  Now a welcome along with several paragraphs stating 
                the rules and the purpose of the system will be pre-
                sented.  You will also be requested to use your real
                name when answering the registration questionaire 
                that will allow you to gain full access to TC FORUM.

            6.  Now you will be asked to C)hange any of the previous
                information (LAST NAME, FIRST NAME, CITY, STATE),
                D)isconnect, or R)egister. Type the letter of your 
                choice and press the <return> key.

            7.  If you have selected R)egister you will be asked to
                enter a password which will be used when you next log
                on. Using a password allows you to go to the MAIN MENU
                without interference.

            8.  The system will ask some "set-up" type questions.
                Answer to the best of your ability.  Novice users
                should type [N]o for the Turbo Keys. Remember, <Enter>
                is the same as Q)uit.

            9.  A welcome is now stated along with some general help
                statements.  You will also be asked if you want the sys-
                tem to ckeck for mail. Answer [N]o and this will now 
                bring you to the MAIN MENU.

           10.  At the (Main Command) type MAIL and after a few seconds
                a list of conferences with a brief description of their
                activity will be shown for your selection.

           11.  Now you may J)oin a conference and interact or G)oodbye
                and go to the MAIN MENU for another choice.  Here also 
                you may type G)oodbye and Log off Y)es or N)o.

           REMARKS:  System is down on the week-end although I found it
           to be available during the evening hours daily.  They are 
           increasing the number of files in the system as well as
           the number of discussion groups.  I did see some personal
           messages concerning notification of shutting down a group.
           It could possibly be a Student Echo group, as that was what
           I was reviewing at the time.  The number and variety of groups
           listed is staggering.

TELNET SITE NAME:

	UMD Info Database 

INTERNET ADDRESSES:

	INFO.UMD.EDU
	         -or-
	128.8.10.29

DESCRIPTION:
	The University of Maryland Info Database offers access to a wide 
variety of information and files.   Some information is specific to the 
University, such as Campus Calendars.   However, there is also a great 
deal of information that is of great interest to the general public.  Files are 
available for reading and for FTP in the areas of computers, economic 
data, and government.  There is also an on-line "Reading Room" that has 
books and articles available to view and/or FTP, many of which are part of 
Project Gutenberg.  Furthermore,  instead of accessing the UMD INFO 
Database at login, it is possible to access the Gopher system.  Through 
accessing gopher, the user can use the ARCHIE and VERONICA 
services, as well as WAIS and WORLD WIDE WEB.  As one can see, the 
UMD INFO Database site, is valuable for not only the information available 
at its site, but also as an information gateway to other services.  
	The site has very user-friendly menus and on-line help available at 
each screen.  However, in order to fully utilize the file transfer capabilities 
of this site,  the user should have a basic understanding of  the protocol 
used to transfer files.

SERVICES:
	Within  UMD INFO Database there are fourteen different menu 
areas.  However, six of these choices are of specific interest to University 
of Maryland  students and staff, such as "CampusCalendars", 
"CampusServices", and "Student Organizations".  These menu choices 
are interesting to browse through, but would probably not be pertinent to 
an "off-campus" TELNET user.  Only one menu item, "USAToday", is not 
available for access by a user from outside the University of Maryland.   
The four menu items that would be of greatest use to the general TELNET 
user are:
	
	  3 - Computers
	  4 - EconData
	  5 - Government
	  6 -  ReadingRoom  

	Each menu choice leads the user into a series of subdirectories 
containing files and documentation on each topic, which may be then 
transferred to the user's local computer.  What makes this site user-
friendly is the fact that each subdirectory is in the form of a menu choice.  
Therefore, there is no need to use UNIX change directory commands, and 
the user does not get "lost" within layers of directories.   Furthermore, 
there is a "Contents" or an "Index"  menu choice in most of the 
subdirectories.  "Contents" or "Index" gives a brief description of the all the 
files contained in  that subdirectory  so that the user can make an informed 
decision about viewing and transferring files.  Finally,  the process for 
transferring  files from any of the subdirectories at the site is menu driven, 
so the user does not have to use UNIX commands.  Each of the most 
"useful" menus are described below.

	3 - Computers Menu

	Within the  "Computers" menu there are 16 subdirectories, which 
are in the form of menu choices.   Among these menu choices are 
subdirectories for Macintosh, Novell,  OS2,  and PC, users.  Within each of 
these subdirectory menu choices are more subdirectories full of files for 
FTP and/or viewing.  For example, the PC subdirectory lists  25  menu 
choices that contain files for dos, graphics, windows, utilities, viruses,  and 
more.    	
	
	4 - EconData Menu

	The "EconData" menu choice provides the user access to  a vast 
wealth of economic data.   According to the readme.doc in the menu,  
there are "several hundred thousand economic time series that have been 
put in a standard, highly efficient, easy-to-use-form for personal 
computers".    Included in the files are data on labor information, price 
indices, and current business indicators.  Also provided among the menu 
choices,  is a subdirectory containing all the necessary computer software 
to utilize the data.  Again,  all of the subdirectories within the EconData 
menu are accessible by menu choice.  There is also a superlative set of 
documentation about how to access and use the data, labeled 
"Contents.doc".

	 5 -  Government Menu

	Within this menu are five different subdirectories (again all in the 
form of menus) which include Factbook91, Factbook92, Maryland, UN, 
and US.  Any of these choices will  access further subdirectories of 
information.  For example, within the US subdirectory there are 16 
additional choices, giving the user access to files on topics ranging from 
the Census-90 to the Supreme Court.  This would be an excellent site for 
history and government educators to explore.
	 
	6 -  ReadingRoom

	  The "ReadingRoom" contains text files in the areas of Computers, 
Disability, Fiction, GreenDisk, History, NewsLetters, and Religion.  Many 
of the works available are part of Project Gutenberg.  There is again a 
menu choice labeled "Index", which provides an alphabetical listing of all 
the readings available at this site.  The user can view the works on-line or 
transfer them to their local computer.  

LOGIN SEQUENCE:
	1)	At the system prompt type >telnet info.umd.edu
							 -or-
					           >telnet 128.8.10.29
					
	2) 	At the login prompt type info.     ex)   login:  info

		NOTE:  To access gopher at this point the user
			   would type gopher.       ex)    login: gopher

	3)	Enter your terminal type.  The default is VT100.  Typing
		a ? will display a list of choices of other terminal types.

EXIT SEQUENCE:
	1)	From any point in the menu system type Q for Quit.  It may
		be necessary to press Q two  times to get back to
		the main menu.

	2)         Respond Y for Yes when prompted "Do you really wish
		to exit Info?"

ACCESS COMMANDS
	Once in UMD Info Database, menu selection is quite easy.  Simply 
use the up and down arrow  keys to select the menu item and press enter.  
It is also possible to press G (for Go-To) and the number of the desired 
menu item.  This can be faster when there are many items within a menu.   
Pressing ESC will return the user to the previous menu.   Pressing the ? 
will provide on-line help.
	The main access commands are listed across the top of the screen 
within each menu.  The commands are VIEW, RETURN, SELECT, X-
FER, GO-TO, PROTOCOL, QUIT.  To utilize any of these commands, 
simply press the first letter of the command. For example, press R to 
Return.  A summary of the function of each of these commands is given 
below.

VIEW      - View allows the user to look at a file or a menu choice.  View is 
		the default menu choice.  Note:  You cannot view binary or 
		zipped files.
RETURN - Pressing R for Return and enter brings the user back to 
		the main menu.
SELECT - Pressing S  will select a file for transfer.  It is possible to select
		several files from the list and then begin transferring all 
		selected files. 
X-FER      -This is the command given to transfer files to the user's local
		  computer.
GO-TO     - This will allow  the user to Go-To another menu item directly,
		   after the number of the menu item is entered.
PROTOCOL - This command allows the user to select the file transfer
		protocol to be used when transferring files.  The choices 
		are FTP, Kermit, and TFTP.  Selecting Kermit will 	
		download the files directly to the user's personal 	
		computer.  The FTP options will transfer the files to the 
		user's internet account space.  Using FTP is the much 
		quicker alternative.  
QUIT 	-  This command is used to Quit the UMD Info Database.

	When viewing a file another set of commands appears at the top of 
the screen.  These commands are: TOP,  Bottom,  Up,  Down,  Left,  
Right,  Number,  Search,  and Quit.  Top, Bottom, Up, Down, Left, and 
Right, allow navigation through the file as their name suggests.  Number 
allows the user to jump to a specific line number within the file.  Search 
allows the user to search for particular text within the file.  Finally, Quit is 
used to Quit the UMD Info Database.

SAMPLE LOGIN:

	1)	At the Welcome screen press any key to go forward to the
		main menu.
	2)	The main menu provides 14 choices.  Press the down arrow
		 to select the choice you wish to view.  For example, to view
		 the "ReadingRoom" subdirectory press the down arrow to 
		 number 6 and press enter.
	 3)	Once within your choice use the same procedure to view  a 
		particular subdirectory.  ESC will return you to the previous 
		menu.
	 4)      Select the "Contents" or "Index" menu item if you wish to 
		see a synopsis of all the files within that menu.
	 5)	To transfer a file to your local Internet Account:
			A)   Press S to select the file you wish to transfer.
			B)   Press P for Protocol and select FTP
			C)   Press X for X-FER.  
			D)   You will then be prompted for the following 
				information:
		       
			What is the name of the remote computer?
			===> (enter the number of the Internet computer at 
				which you have an account) 
			What is your userid on that machine?
			===> (enter your userid *without* the extensions
				after the @ sign).  For example,  enter
				jdoe not jdoe@tenet.edu.
			What is the password for that userid?
			===> (enter your password, it will not be displayed)
			Please enter remote name for:  file.zip
			====> (enter the name you would like the file to
				have on your computer or press enter to
				 keep the same name.)

			E)    The files will then be transferred to your 	
				local computer.
	6)	Press Q to Quit the system.

FRIENDLY ADVICE:

	If you plan to transfer files from the site, using the FTP protocol, you 
will need to know the Internet Address of the computer at which you have 
an account.  Be sure to write this down *before*  telnetting to the UMD Info 
site.
	If the up and down arrows keys do not function when you enter the 
site, exit out.  Then, telnet back to the site and try using VT200 as your 
terminal type instead of the default VT100,

                   There is a lot of information referenced for
                   librarians. Also teachers will find the access
                   of current information of real value to use in
                   their curriculum. The political and economic
                   data can be easily referenced, such as the CIA
                   World Fact Book. For science teachers there is
                   current earthquake and tropical storm
                   information available.

TELNET SITE NAME:       	World-Wide Web

INTERNET ADDRESSES:     	INFO.CERN.CH
                        			128.141.201.74

DOCUMENT AUTHOR :    	Jane Couture  
REVISED 2/93    :     		Bill Rainey


DESCRIPTION:  
	The World-Wide Web (WWW) is an information retrieval
system based on the principals of hypertext. If you are familiar
with hypertext, you will find this a very comfortable site to use.
If not, this is a good place to learn. The WWW uses programs called
"browsers" to allow the user to navigate the web. When you telnet
into cern, you are placed into a browser. As you look at the
screen, you will usually see numbers enclosed in brackets -ie- [3],
scattered throughout the text. Each of these numbers represents a
linked topic which you may jump to. This is the basic idea of
hypertext, information is linked together in such a way that the
user may move through it at will, in a nonlinear fashion. When you
make such a jump, you may go to another file on the same computer,
or to a file on a computer which could be on a different continent.
It will look the same to you as a user.
  	With all of these options, it is not difficult to get lost in the
maze of information. If this happens, relax, don't worry, the maze
has no centaur. You may always retrace your steps and pop back out
by using the 'back' command (see Browser Commands below). 
	The World-Wide Web was developed and implemented through 
CERN, the Eupopean Particle Physics Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland.
Since the Web is still under development, things may change from
time to time and you may run into some glitches or dead ends. Don't
panic just remember to use that 'back' command and have fun.

LOGIN SEQUENCE:  There is no login or password needed.  After 
connecting with the system, you will see an opening screen with the
heading "GENERAL OVERVIEW". The bottom line will show the 
commands which may be used at this time. Be aware that the list of 
available commands will change, depending on where you are in the web. 

BROWSER COMMANDS: The following is a list of the commands used for
the default WWW line browser.*  The commands available at any given
time will be displayed at the bottom of each screen. 

[ 1-25 ]  :    A range of numbers may appear at the very left of
the bottom line. The numbers indicate the hypertextual links
currently available. Entering one of them will take you to the
associated node.

[ back ]  :  Entering the word 'back' (or b for short) will take
you back to the place from which you made the most recent
hypertextual jump. Remember, 'back' undoes the action caused by
entering one of the previous number commands.

[ <return> ] : Pressing the <return> key allows you to move forward
through successive screens within a node. Jumps get you to a
certain place, pressing enter allows you to move through the
sequence of screens at that place.

[ up ]    :  Entering the word 'up' (or u for short) will take you
back to the most recent screen you were on. This is used for
retracing your steps through screens within a node rather than for
jumping between nodes, which is done with 'back'. Remember, 'up'
undoes the action caused by pressing the 'return' key.

[ Quit ]   :  Entering the word 'Quit' (must be typed in full) will
cause your exit from the WWW. Be careful, this one will close your
connection to cern, returning you to the site from which you made
the telnet connection.

[ Help ]   :  Use this to reach the online help system. 

* Note: Other browser programs are available at CERN. Once you
become acquainted with the web, it may be a good idea to get a
browser that is specific to the computer you are using.

EXIT SEQUENCE:  Anytime you wish to quit, type 'Quit'

SERVICES:  The World-Wide Web is a navigation tool which puts many
of the services of the Internet at your fingertips.
        
SAMPLE LOGIN:  This is the first screen you will see.

   There is no "top" to the World-Wide Web. You can look at it from many
points of view. If you have no other bias, here are some places to
start:
   
  by Subject[1]          A classification by subject of interest.
			Incomplete but easiest to use.
                         
  by Type[2]             Looking by type of service (access
			protocol, etc) may allow to find things if you know 
			what you are looking for.
                         
  About WWW[3]      About the World-Wide Web global
			information sharing project

field of interest, see  "customizing your home page"[4].
