Abstract
WAIS (Wide Area Information Server) is a client-server protocol developed to search large databases of information. Its software can be used to provide searchable indexes on the Internet for full text local collections. The index is created using WAIS and then made available through a gopher, WAIS, or WWW server. The software consists of waisindex, waissearch, and waisserver. Outlines how to create, search and access the indexes
