After encouraging special librarians to investigate the Internet in The Internet and Special Librarians (Professional Reading, LJ 10/15/93), editor Tillman brings some organization to the actual "Internet tools of the profession" by providing a select list of Internet-accessible resources "identified as valuable" by various participating SLA divisions. Chapters contributed by members of six divisions?Business & Finance, Chemistry, Education, Food-Agriculture-Nutrition, Information Technology, and Nuclear Science?describe Internet sources in their subject areas. Tools in various formats?electronic discussion groups, Telnet, FTP (file transfer protocol), gopher, WAIS (wide area information servicer) and WWW (World Wide Web)?are evaluated for their "purpose" and "value." Entries in each chapter are listed alphabetically by resource name and include the following information: source (location of the resource on the Internet); cost; type of resource; contact person; purpose; value. In a separate chapter, Tillman describes SLA's status on the net, as reflected in listservs, Free-Net bulletin boards, and division homepages. This guide will serve as a valuable starting point to special librarians unfamiliar with Internet resources in their field. Academic librarians may also find useful the final chapter, featuring a subject sampler of Internet resources not represented in the other chapters. The sampler lists three or four tools in such areas as library management, social science, and transportation. Since new resources appear on the WWW at the rate of several hundred a day, Tillman also provides protocols to assist in locating new tools.?Raymond Hamel, Wisconsin Regional Primate Research Lib., Madison
