Title
Building and maintaining a library Gopher : traditional skills applied to emerging resources

Abstract
Gopher software has emerged rapidly as a powerful tool for providing library users with organized access to Internet resources. Building and maintaining gophers is one way in which librarians' traditional knowledge and skills are being applied in a non traditional area. In March 1992, the Michigan University's ULibrary Gopher was created, to provide access to US Census data and the US Department of Commerce's Economic Bulletin Boeard. In an effort to broaden the scope for the gopher, librarians were asked to submit ideas for new resources to access. The result was the ULibrary Gopher Working Group, a team of 18 librarians from 6 libraries on campus. The Alfred Taubman Medical Library staff drafted a menu design for life sciences section of ULibrary became fully operational and now is maintained by the Taubman staff. Describes the history of the ULibrary Gopher and the working group, the creation and ongoing maintenance of the life sciences area of the Gopher, staffing issues, and the relationship of gopher building to traditional collection development
