Pages 27

As the networks expand and more resources and services are made available the task of accessing this data becomes more and more difficult. However, a number of tools are available to facilitate the task of locating and retrieving network resources, so that users anywhere can utilise texts, data, software and information for public access. Facilities to explore public domain software repositories, to consult mailing list archives and databases, to retrieve directory information and to participate in global group discussions are made freely available to all through the Internet itself.
