Libraries FAQ 2.1 http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Acropolis/1107 Anthony Wilson paw@iglou.com Libraries FAQ Section 1.0 Introduction 1.1 What is a FAQ? 1.2 Where can I find the Libraries FAQ? 1.3 How can I contribute to the Libraries FAQ? 1.4 What other FAQs might interest librarians and researchers? 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/news.answers. 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/library-faq 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 1.4 What other FAQs might interest librarians and researchers?
