              "An A-Z of African Studies on the Internet"
 
The year 1995 has seen vibrant changes in the electronic coverage of
African studies. Whilst researching a recent book, I joined a great
many Africa-related electronic groups to gather information and
ideas. Here are some of them. The Internet changes almost daily, so I
cannot guarantee that these addresses are all still accurate. But I
have tried most of these, and found many stimulating.
