Abstract
As the information available via Internet continues to proliferate so it gains increasing importance and legitimacy throughout the scientific community. As the network grows into one of a multiplicity of sources of knowledge, so there is a pressing need for systematic, standardized mechanisms to identify, locate and describe the network's information resources. Argues that there is a functional difference between online information and networked information; in that the configuration and architecture of the former is basically star shaped, with terminals linked to a central computer, whereas the latter involves reticular connection witt the network behaving as an interconnection of interconnected nodes. Lists and describes some of the searching tools and gophers designed to assist Internet searchers, including: Archie; WAIS; Veronica; and Jughead
