This report describes a short-term effort to construct a prototype for the National Software Exchange. The prototype demonstrates how the evolving National Information Infrastructure (NII) can be used to facilitate sharing of software and information among members of the High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC) community. Shortcomings of current information searching and retrieval tools are pointed out, and recommendations are given for areas in need of further development.
