Selected E-Mail/WWW Gateways

  1. E-Mail Access to WWW Human Dimensions Data and Information Resources. CIESIN's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) maintains a service to provide e-mail access to human dimensions data and information resources available over the WWW. Users may retrieve WWW documents either as plain text or in hypertext format for local viewing with a standard browser. The service currently utilizes the Agora software developed by the W3 Consortium, which does not yet support hypertext forms. The service is free, but registration is required. Availability: Send an e-mail message to www.mail@ciesin.org with the word "help" in the body of the message. For assistance, contact CIESIN User Services at ciesin.info@ciesin.org

  2. GetWeb. SatelLife HealthNet's GetWeb server allows users to request WWW pages via e-mail. It supports both text and hypertext format documents and is capable of submitting keyword searches to standard Internet search services. SatelLife is an international not-for-profit organization serving health communication and information needs of developing countries.
