     The Neurosciences:  An Internet Resource Guide

========================================================

WHAT WE!RE DOING:

A Neurosciences Internet Resources Guide (NIRG) is 
currently under construction at the University of 
Michigan!s School of Information and Library Studies.

The NIRG project proposes to bring together related 
neuroscience resources in biology, biotechnology, and 
the bioelectrical and biomedical fields.  Resources will 
include electronic journals, newsletters, databases, 
image and video databases, documents, reports, gopher 
sites, usenet and listserv groups, among others.

In order to provide the most useful guide possible, we 
welcome resource suggestions from members of the 
Internet community and specifically those with some 
expertise in the neurosciences.  If you know of a 
unique, relevant, or useful resource, we!d love to hear 
from you.  Even if you don!t know of a resource, we!d 
like to know what you think of the value of such a 
guide.  Your participation is crucial to the success of 
this project.

WHY WE!RE DOING IT:

Several excellent guides to Biology resources on the 
Internet exist (such as Una R. Smith!s).  This project 
will provide not only a guide with a tighter focus on 
neuroscience resources, but also a guide with a broader, 
more interdisciplinary approach.

WHO WE ARE:

The NIRG project is directed by Sheryl Cormicle and 
Steve Bonario, two Master-level students in the School 
of Information and Library Studies at the University of 
Michigan.  The resource guide is a term project and will 
be made available to the Internet community in December 
of this year.  We hope to make the guide available in 
several formats, including a simple text file, a gopher 
document, and an HTML document.
