Some time ago the issue of net sources for resources on the net
for senior citizens and those working with them was raised. I
have compiled the following list of net locations that deal with
this issue. Some are not related to community nets in any way,
but all present some aspect of senior net resources.
 
 
SeniorNet
 
  SeniorNet is a nonprofit project to provide seniors with "a
  national online network... locally sponsored and operated
  Learning Centers, and ... educational publications."
 
  The online network operates out of America On Line where members
  can participate off line (no time rates apply).

ECONOMICS OF AGING INTEREST GROUP NEWSLETTER, Fall 1994
EOA AND INTERNET
Richard V. Burkhauser Chair, EoA
Center for Policy Research
The Maxwell School
Syracuse University
 
     EoA is moving onto the information superhighway by
introducing an electronic mailing list called AGING, based at
Syracuse University. We're doing this to disseminate news about
research and publications in the field more rapidly and more
inexpensively. EoA doesn't collect dues from its members or
charge for subscriptions to its newsletter.  The newsletter is
published and distributed by mail twice a year thanks to generous
subsidies from GSA and other organizations. We think we can do
our job better, and more successfully meet the goals of EoA, if
we supplement the hard copy newsletter with an electronic
exchange medium. Currently, the list is open to the public and
unmoderated, though as the volume of messages increases this may
change.
     If you are interested in subscribing to the AGING list, send
a message to [log in to unmask] Leave the *subject* line
blank. Your message is the following command:  SUB AGING
fullname, where fullname is your name, e.g., Richard V.
Burkhauser. If your message contains a signature you may receive
some error messages when LISTSERV tries to interpret your
signature as LISTSERV commands, but the subscription message will
be properly executed.
