This article is from the Libraries FAQ, by Anthony Wilson email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
FAQ is an acronym for Frequently Asked Questions (or, as some have
suggested, Frequently ANSWERED Questions), a periodic posting of
information regularly requested on Usenet newsgroups. FAQs posted to
news.answers are archived at
ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/. Hypertext versions of
posted FAQs can be found at:
The Libraries FAQ arose out of questions asked on soc.libraries.talk
and other library related newsgroups. It is a collection of basic
information regarding libraries and librarianship and an introductory
guide to library resources on the Internet.
