Veronica is an acronym for Very Easy Rodent-Oriented Net-wide Index to Computerized Archives. Basically, Veronica is a tool that helps you find things in Gopher. There are large databases of available services that are searched when the user enters keywords or groups of keywords. Veronica tracks all of the Gopher menus that can be accessed directly or often very indirectly from the mother Gopher in Minnesota. Veronica is a handy searching system, but can be timely to use because there are so many possible places it looks. Veronica searches only menu titles, not the contents of documents stored on servers. For more information on Veronica, please contact your local Internet service provider.
