18.5 Further Information

This is by no means an in-depth discussion on ADSI. For more information, you should look at the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) library documentation, which contains all of the documentation on the specifics of VBScript, JScript, ADO, ADSI, and WSH. There are a few ways to get hold of the MSDN library: you can purchase an MSDN library subscription from Microsoft and get quarterly CDs with all of the documentation, or you can access the documentation directly via the Internet. MSDN online can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/. Once you enter the MSDN library from the CD-ROM or the Web, you will see a list of contents on the left-hand menu, which you can browse.

Table 18-1 lists some useful Internet sites to find additional information on the topics covered in this chapter.
