A New Internet Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

       Title     : A Status Report on Networked Information Retrieval:
                   Tools and Groups

As the network has grown, along with it there has been an increase in 
the number of software tools and applications to navigate the network 
and make use of the many, varied resources which are part of the 
network.  Within the past year and a half we have seen a wide spread 
adoption of tools such as the archie servers, the Wide Area 
Information Servers (WAIS), the Internet gopher, and the Worldwide Web
(WWW).  In addition to the acceptance of these tools there are also 
diverse efforts to enhance and customise these tools to meet the needs
of particular network communities.
