New resources and services are being added to the network daily. The number of prospective users of these resources is expanding rapidly, but problems arise when individuals attempt to identify, locate, and access networked information in today's dynamic environment. This paper describes Archie, an electronic indexing service for locating information that exists on the Internet. The author describes the Archie service in the context of the Resource Discovery Problem and discusses enhancements that are planned for Archie.
