[Note from the moderator: It has been confirmed that ASM is a non-profit
scientific educational organisation.]


Microbiology has a new domain on the Web. The American Society for 
Microbiology (ASM) Homepage premiered on the World Wide Web August 1 at 
http://www.asmusa.org.
	Designed as a comprehensive, easy to navigate, information source 
on the microbiological sciences, the ASM homepage will appeal to everyone 
from scientists to the lay public. The multimedia environment contains 
information and activities useful to ASM Members, other scientists and 
the general public:
 
*	Financial aid: Information on scholarships, fellowships and 
 	travel grants online.
*	Downloadable forms will allow users to do everything from joining 
 	the Society and ordering publications to searching for a job in 
 	microbiology.
*	Keep up to date on the latest research being published in the 
 	Society's 11 peer-reviewed journals with tables of contents 
 	online.  Also online:  press releases, meeting programs, position 
 	statements and congressional testimony on key issues affecting 
 	microbiology.
*	Lots of links connect users to a wealth of information on the 
 	microbiological sciences including universities, government 
 	agencies, newsgroups, electronic journals and the latest search 
 	engines for the web. 	
 
	Work has already begun on a future ftp site of Society documents 
as well as inline forms and credit card transactions.
