A new guide to the Internet especially geared toward chemists has just been released. The Internet: A Guide For Chemists, edited by Steven M. Bachrach, covers basic information such as the history of the Internet, electronic mail, electronic lists, gopher, world wide web, and electronic conferencing plus a comprehensive section especially for chemists.
