Those interested in the ongoing discussion regarding on-line publication
and storage of taxonomic information might also benefit from examining
the following draft report entitled "Access to and Services for Federal
Information in the Networked Environment (Draft March 1997)".

http://www.cni.org/projects/fedinfo/www/fedinfo.draft.html

It contains some insight to how TCP/IP is altering mechanisms to manage
information and documentation from a broad perspective.  Many of the
issues we have grappled with for taxonomic information surface in this
more general discussion as well.
