NSF Network News is a bimonthly hypertext about Internet issues, resources, tools, and uses, plus InterNIC activities.

Another InfoGuide service is a weekly Scout Report of Internet news and resources. Use WWW, or send a "subscribe scout-report " to majordomo@is.internic.net. Or gopher to is.internic.net (Information Services). Send notices to scout@internic.net. [Info Scout, 5/3/94.]

Gleason Sackman's high-volume InterNIC Net Happenings list is changing slightly. Each message has a subject keyword that can be used for filtering.
