        The Internet Research Task Force Research Group on Resource
        Discovery (IRTF-RD) has made its Harvest software system
        available on the Internet.

        Harvest is an integrated set of tools to gather, extract,
        organize, search, cache, and replicate relevant information
        across the Internet.  With modest effort users can tailor
        Harvest to digest information in many different formats, and
        offer custom search services on the Internet.  Moreover, Harvest
        makes very efficient use of network traffic, remote servers, and
        disk space.

        We have built a number of content indexes with Harvest,
        including an index of AT&T's 1-800 phone numbers, an index of
        WWW home pages, and an index of over 24,000 Computer Science
        technical reports from around the world.

        We have been beta testing Harvest for four months, and starting
        today are making the software available on the Internet.  You
        can get to demonstrations, papers, software and documentation at
