I would recommend that you direct your attention to "SIFT Netnews Server"
which is the Stanford Netnews Filtering Service. The URL to access it 
though Mosaic is 

http://woodstock.stanford.edu:2000/

and it will allow you to construct filters to search Usenet on a regular
basis for keywords of your choice,and you recieve a synopsis of the
hits via e-mail for you to persue.

Very neat and worthwhile... give it a try.
