For Information on the Internet

By Brad Spurgeon International Herald Tribune
ALMOST as rapidly growing as service providers on the Internet are new magazines about the on-line service, such as Britain's ".net." And far from killing the book industry, the Internet is creating a whole new genre, about itself.

Good books for the beginner include the Electronic Frontier Foundation's guide to the Internet, which is available as a printed book titled, "Everybody's Guide to the Internet."

Another good guide is Greg R. Notess's "Internet Access Providers: An International Resource Directory," published by Meckler Corp., Westport, Connecticut, in 1994.

One of the best books for connecting to the Internet outside the United States is "Internet: Getting Started," edited by April Marine. First published by SRI International, Menlo Park, California, in 1992, the book was updated in 1994.

Several international organizations also provide information about the Internet:
