Sorry for the "delay" in my response to the above posting.  My Usenet 
connection was buggy when I sent the follwing reply the first time.

The ATCC molecular probes and libraries catalog is available free on-line via 
modem at 1-800-647-4710.  User ID= COMMON and password= COMMON.  The only way
to access their other holdings (e.g., mammalian cell lines) on-line
that I know of is a pay subscription service that is accessible via BT/Tymnet.
Call ATCC if you want info about that, but the last time I checked into it,
it was expensive.  I'd be interested if anyone knows of a free or cheap
way to access the catalog of non-molecular ATCC holdings on-line,
particularly since the last time ATCC issued a new catalog of their mammalian
cell lines was 1988 (a new catalog will be available this year).
