WWW VL Biosciences Organization Change

The WWW Virtual Library: Biosciences 
has undergone a small organizational shift. 
The main list of sites is creeping up on 60Kb, and is becoming less
generally useful for users.  So, the following changes have been made:

1. <a href=http://golgi.harvard.edu/biopages.html> Introduction </a>
   This URL now leads to a compact introduction to the VL Biosciences,
   related areas in the WWW VL.  This should be more generally useful,
   and will encourage people to go to sub-libraries rather than the main

2. <a href=http://golgi.harvard.edu/htbin/biopages> Index </a>
   This is a searchable index form of the main list.  A short description
   of some useful regular expression syntax is included on the search

3. <a href=http://golgi.harvard.edu/biopages/all.html>
   This is the new URL for the comprehensive list.  </a>

It is suggested that most pages switch their links pointing to the 
VL Biosciences to either above URL #1, URL #2, or to appropriate
sub-libraries as seen fit.  Please change any other URLs which you
may have (such as biopages.list), as they may disappear in the future
or may give some browsers fits.

Also, just for consistency, please label your links 
(for the sake of consistency.)

Two other items of related relevance:
   A more detailed announcement will be posted in the near future, but I
am attempting to solicit curators for more sub-branches of the library.
   CERN is promoting the development of "thumbnail" icons for the VL
branches. So far there are none for the Biosciences or its branches.
	If you are interested in either of these, please E-mail me.
