Three online information sources about the activities and standards of

NISO as of April 1, 1993. These services are:

    niso-l, a listserv that will be sued by NISO to announce activities
    and news from the standards committees as well as to announce
    balloting and publication of new and revised standards;

    an anonymous ftp server providing a complete list of NISO published
    and draft standards, a balloting calendar for new and existing
    standards under review, news of the NISO standards committees and a
    listing of the topics covered in issued of NISO's newsletter,

    a gopher service providing access to the same set of information

To subscribe to niso-l, send an email to listserv [at] nervm__nerdc__ufl__edu
containing the single line 'subscribe niso-l <your name>'.

To access NISO information via anonymous ftp, do ftp
and sign on with the log-in id of anonymous and a password of guest.
