For those of you who would like to access the current issue of the
"Chronicle of Higher Education" it is available via gopher by
pursuing the following path:
Exploring the Internet
Other Gopher and Information Servers
Search titles in Gopherspace using Veronica
Search GopherSpace by Title words (via NYSERNET)
(this last gives a lengthy index of topics that can be accessed
on the current CHE)
