The Netlib repository contains freely available software, documents, and databases of interest to the numerical, scientific computing, and other communities. The repository is maintained by AT&TBell Laboratories, the University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and by colleagues world-wide. This report includes both the Netlib User's Guide and the Netlib System Manager's Guide, and contains information about Netlib's databases, interfaces, and system implementation. The Netlib repository's databases include the Performance Database, the Conferences Database, and numerous bibliographic and address databases. A variety of user interfaces enable users to access the Netlib repository in the manner most convenient and compatible with their networking capabilities. These interfaces include the Netlib email interface, the Xnetlib X Windows client, the netlibget command-line TCP/IP client, anonymous FTP, anonymous RCP, gopher, and the World Wide Web. Those without networks can get Netlib on CD-ROM. The collection is replicated at several sites around the world, automatically synchronized, to provide reliable and network efficient service to the global community.
