The World Wide Web

The World Wide Web (WWW) is a distributed hypertext database, that is, a series of documents or "nodes" on machines all over the world (distributed), connected together by easy-to-follow links (hypertext). This provides an attractive and convenient way of accessing and presenting a huge variety of material. WWW originated at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics CERN.

Some useful general Web sources

You can search the CARL UnCover periodical database, which indexes over 15,000 periodicals, through a telnet connection. Choose VT100 when asked for terminal type. Browsing without or with a profile is allowed: in the latter case, record your profile number and the password you chose for next time. Article delivery is not directly available, but can be arranged for School members through the Mathematics Library. A description of the service is available.
