American Chemical Society Gopher.
The ACS Gopher contains Electronic Supporting Information files (formerly called "Supplementary Material") from Chemical Reviews and the Journal of the American Chemical Society, beginning 1993 (Page images as TIFF with Group 4 fax compression and as GIF files), Copyright Transfer Form (same format), and Instructions for Authors for ACS journals (ASCII file). Among other re sources, there are the ACS Books Catalog, ACS information num bers, and links to other chemistry gophers. URL: gopher:// (Check for new numeric IP address after February 19.)
