[This is an initial draft constructed simply by merging several random
sources.  It is neither selective nor comprehensive.]

1.  On-line materials maintains a directory of materials relating to Z39.50
implementations, for anonymous ftp, in directory 
Subdirectory Z3950/ZIG is an archive of implementation documents.

The mailing list Z3950IW@NERVM.BITNET provides discussions of
Z39.50 implementation and related issues. runs the "Forum on Wide Airea Information Servers and
Electronic Publishing" (known more briefly as the WAIS-discussion
digest), a news group moderated by Brewster Kahle.  It is available
as the Project Athena discuss meeting "WAIS redist".
