About 7000 newsgroups are carried at present, and new ones are
being created all the time. The main hierarchies available from the Oxford news server are:
comp,humanities,misc,news,rec,sci,soc,talk,uk. In addition we also carry a local hierarchy,
ox, and a selection of other smaller hierarchies, as well as a selection of groups from
alt. A full list of groups on the server can be retrieved using most news client software.
