The National Archives has made available an Internet Gopher server that provides key information relating to the National Archives, including descriptions of facilities nationwide; information on agency holdings; publications and general information leaflets; and some Federal records regulations. The Gopher is part of a pilot project to make information about the agency and its holdings available electronically. The goal of the pilot project is to provide a unified presentation and method of access to National Archives information for Internet users. The Gopher menu structure, which will be expanded as new items become available, is designed to reflect the breadth of the National Archives organization. The Gopher is to serve government agency personnel, educators, librarians, historians, genealogists, researchers, job-seekers, and members of the public. Future plans call for a bulletin board presentation for dial-in access to the Gopher menu. The Gopher is an excellent introduction to the holding of the National Archives for first-time users. Researchers can access information on some of the most widely-used collections, including the Nixon Presidential Materials, Ansel Adams photographs from the Still Picture Branch, captured German sound recordings, electronic records, and an index of selected census records. Research questions can be directed by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Text-based information can be accessed with a Gopher client by connecting to the address gopher.nara.gov. This information, together with future additions of hypertext and multimedia documents, can also be found on the WorldWideWeb (WWW), using a client such as Mosaic, at http://www.nara.gov. The National Archives is using the GN server for the Gopher and HTTP protocols, running on an i486 microcomputer. The freeware for the UNIX operating system was written by John Franks at Northwestern University. The system administrator is Jon Radel of Synetics Inc.
