Development of vast information databases goes on unabated in the USA. In future, the emphasis will be the formation of intelligent gateways to integrated online services and mailing/data communication networks, so as to create a single transparent, easy‐to‐use international networking service. This paper centres on the attempt at providing simple gateway access to the large number of networks in place around the world (and beyond?).
