Free Internet access offered at ACS meeting

The Internet Corral will make its debut at the American Chemical Society national meeting next week in Anaheim, Calif. The bank of 24 computer terminals will provide meeting attendees with free Internet access.

Attendees will be able to check office e-mail, review the features of the ACS World Wide Web server, and send messages. Located inside the exposition at the rear of Hall B in the Anaheim Convention Center, the Internet Corral will provide service during scheduled exposition hours: Monday, April 3, from 9 AM to 5 PM; Tuesday, April 4, from 9 AM to 6:30 PM, and Wednesday, April 5, from 9 AM to 4 PM.

To maximize the number of users, those using the service in Anaheim will be asked to observe a 10-minute connection limit if others are waiting. At future national meetings, ACS plans to offer a printing capability in the corral and allow exhibitors to tap into the connection (for a fee, which will help to underwrite some of the costs of the service).
