Abstract
The scope and characteristics of what may be considered the first three generations of automated Internet indexing systems are identified and described as to their methods of compiling their datasets, their search interfaces and the associated etymological metaphors and mythologies. These three are suggested to be: firstly, the Archie system for single keyword and regular expression searches of the file lists of anonymous ftp sites: secondly, the Veronica system for Boolean keyword in title searches of the world's gopher servers; thirdly, a range of software techniques jnown as robots and search engines, which compile searchable databases of information accessible via the WWW, such as the currently popular Lycos project at Carnegie Mellon University. The present dominance of WWW client software as the preferred interface to Internet information has led to provision of methods of also using the first two systems by this single interface, and these are also noted
