Marilynne -- My book, _An Indexer's Guide to the Internet_ (published
last month by the American Society of Indexers, P.O. Box 386,
Port Aransas, TX / phone: 512-749-4052) is a good primer on the Internet,
especially for those with a passion for indexing. It also contains a
Select Bibliography with a fairly extensive list of recent books and
articles on the Internet. My favorite books include:
_The Internet Directory_ by Eric Braun. New York, NY: Fawcett
Columbine (a division of Ballantine Books), 1994
_The Internet Complete Reference_ by Harley Hahn. Berkeley, CA:
Osborn McGraw-Hill, 1994
BTW, Tracey LaQuey is updating her book, __The Internet Companion_,
and the indexer working with her is a friend of mine so I know she'll do
an excellent job on it.
