The following is a list of currently active USENET newsgroups as of
2 Dec 1996. This list does not include the gatewayed Internet newsgroups
(see below). The groups distributed worldwide are divided into eight
broad classifications: "comp", "humanities", "misc", "news", "rec",
"sci", "soc", and "talk". Each of these classifications is organized
into groups and subgroups according to topic.

"comp" Topics of interest to both computer professionals and
hobbyists, including topics in computer science, software
source, and information on hardware and software systems.

Professional and amateur topics in the arts & humanities.

"misc" Groups addressing themes not easily classified under any of the
other headings or which incorporate themes from multiple

"news" Groups concerned with the news network and software themselves.

"rec" Groups oriented towards the arts, hobbies and recreational

"sci" Discussions marked by special and usually practical knowledge,
relating to research in or application of the established

"soc" Groups primarily addressing social issues and socializing.

"talk" Groups largely debate-oriented and tending to feature long
discussions without resolution and without appreciable amounts
of generally useful information.

These "world" newsgroups are (usually) circulated around the entire
USENET -- this implies world-wide distribution. Not all groups
actually enjoy such wide distribution, however. Some sites take only
a selected subset of the more "technical" groups, and controversial
"noise" groups are often not carried by many sites (these groups are
often under the "talk" and "soc" classifications). Many sites do not
carry some or all of the comp.binaries groups.

There are groups in other subcategories, but they are local: to
institutions, to geographic regions, etc. and they are not listed
here. Note that these distribution categories can be used to restrict
the propagation of news articles. Currently, distributions include:
world worldwide distribution (default)
can limited (mostly) to Canada
eunet limited (mostly) to European sites in EUNet
na limited (mostly) to North America
usa limited (mostly) to the United States
There may be other regional and local distribution categories available
at your site. Most US states have distribution categories named after
the two letter abbreviation for that state or category (e.g., "ga" for
Georgia, "nj" for New Jersey). Please use an appropriate distribution
category if your article is not likely to be of interest to USENET
readers worldwide.

Please notify me of any errors or changes to the information in
this article.
