PACFORNET is a pioneer information network operating in three western regions and two research stations of the USDA Forest Service. It combines research library facilities with recently available information-handling technology, telecommunications, and document delivery, thus serving foresters even in remote ranger districts. The network is working effectively, and recommendations for its geographic expansion have been made.
