**Correction to December 22, 1994 Online Resource Pointer
#15.** In our last Resource Pointer, IPMnet was listed as
Cornell University's Consortium for International Crop
Protection (CICP) in joint with the National Biological
Impact Assessment. Although Cornell University currently
maintains its business office at Cornell's Geneva, New York
campus, Cornell is only one of the twelve universites and one
federal agency, the United States Department of Agriculture,
that make up the consortium. See below for corrected version
of the item.
*IPMnet.* The Consortium for International Crop Protection
(CICP) and the National Biological Impact Assessment Program
(NBIAP) jointly offer "IPMnet", a 24-hour free online source
of international Integrated Pest Management information,
which includes IPM special reports, the "IPMnet NEWS",
issues of "Resistant Pest Management" newsletters, technical
information resources, an IPM forum, and IPM databases. To
