In this paper we discuss the role of, and requirements for, directory services in support of integrated, location-independent computing. We focus on two specific problems: the server selection problem and the user location problem. We present solutions to these problems based on the Prospero Directory Service. The solutions demonstrate several unique features of Prospero that make it particularly suited for support of location-independent computing.
