In 1983, APIS-Apicultural Information and Issues (Apis Newsletter) became available worldwide on the Internet as one of the first linked databases concentrating on beekeeping. In 1994, the story of APIS was featured in the FARNET publication, 51 Reasons: How We Use the Internet and What it Says About the Information Superhighway, the lobbying document used to educate the U.S. Congress about the value of the National Information Infrastructure (NII), which finally resulted in the Internet and World Wide Web.
After almost 30 years of consistent publication, the Apis Newsletter has now been replaced by the Apis Information Resource News. This makes it more consistent with the Apis Information Resource Center going forward.
