This book is a tutorial to the use of WAIS and gopher. It describes how to use a few WAIS and gopher clients for DOS, Macintosh and Unix computers. It also describes how WAIS and gopher servers can be used to enhance library service. To accomplish these goals the author describes the client / server model and provides an overview of the WAIS and gopher protocols in chapter one.
