AGRICULTURE LIBRARY CLOSED
The Agriculture Library will close for a collection inventory on
August 16th and 17th. Everyone will be working in the stacks so
the phone will not be answered and the doors will be locked to
the public. If there is a need to get in touch with anyone,
please send an E-Mail message to "APP". The mail will be checked
twice a day.
The Library is sorry for the inconvenience but it has been four
years since the last inventory and this maintenance is long over-
due. (Submitted by Toni Powell.)

library for one week and will be moved each wednesday.

in various locations of M.I. King Library. The equipment should

 UKCC SHORT COURSES IN SEPTEMBER
The following classes are helpful if you are just starting to use
BITNET on the campus mainframe. They are offered free to all UK
faculty, staff, and students, but you must preregister. You can
register by calling 257-UKCC and leaving a message. It is a
Voice Mail Exchange--VMX box, like the Systems Office has. Your
registration will be confirmed by phone within five days.
Introduction to VM/CMS and XEDIT
September 11 and 12, 2-4 p.m. in 103 McVey Hall
or September 18 and 19, 1-3 p.m. in 103 McVey Hall
This is a basic introduction to moving around in the campus
mainframe, including using XEDIT which is the text editor
used in electronic mail. This course is not mandatory, but
the basics learned in this class can keep you out of trouble
when you are using VIEW. You will learn how to create and
manage files on the mainframe. This includes printing files
and checking to see what files you have stored under your
password. Maybe someone will become interested in how we
create the files for VIEW LIBRARY.
Introduction to Electronic Mail on the IBM
September 13, 3-5 p.m. in 103 McVey Hall
or September 20, 1-3 p.m. in 103 McVey Hall
This course is intended for beginners and deals with the
basics of using BITNET on the mainframe (UKCC). You will
4 learn how to send mail to other BITNET users, whether they
are on the mainframe,_ one of the campus WANG computers, or
at some other campus that has BITNET. You will learn how to
check your mailbox and some tricks for managing your elec-
tronic mail files. You will also learn how to set up an
electronic mail address file that can save you time.
If you have taken the Introduction to VM/CMS course, you will
notice some reinforcement of the basic concepts as they are pre-
sented again in the Introduction to Electronic Mail course. In
both courses, you will be given manuals to remind you of the
concepts covered. Chris Corman, who is our Computer Center Liai-
son, is the instructor again this year, and this will be an ex-
cellent opportunity to get to know Chris.

 FAX NUMBER CHANGES
Several FAX numbers have been changed recently. The new numbers
are:
Engineering 8-1911 A
Business 8-5912
ILL 8-1908
CHECK YOUR "WHOIS" DIRECTORY ENTRY ON UKCC
` The WHOIS online directory lists the name, electronic address,
and, optionally, telephone number for users of UK computer sys-
tems. It can be queried by users on the Internet and BITNET and
other connected networks using mail or interactive messages. The
name and electronic address sections are printed in the campus
telephone directory each year using the information as of the
middle of August.
Your entry is under YOUR control. If you want to be found by
other users you should have an accurate entry. If you have user-
ids in several systems you should select just one as your home
address for listing with WHOIS.
CMS users can display their entries with the command:
whois show
and can add or change their entries with the command: .
` whois name Firstname Lastname
where, of course, "Firstname Lastname" would be the user's name
as it should be listed in the directory. A telephone number can
be added to an entry with the command:
whois phone number
where "number" would be the telephone number.
WHOIS is available by mail from many systems on campus, including
the campus Wang network. Send WHOIS requests by mail, one com-
mand per line, to WHOIS@UKCC or whois@ukcc.uky.edu. For example,
you might mail the following lines to update your entry:
name Jan Smith
phone 257-9000
