U.S. Public Library Outlet Internet Connectivity: Progress Issues and Strategies.
Bertot, John Carlo; McClure, Charles R.
Library & Information Science Research, v21 n3 p28198 1999
Results of a national survey on public library outlet Internet connectivity reveal disparities in connectivity, public access provision, and speed of public access Internet services. Disparities have implications for future connectivity policy development like erate, state librarybased connectivity programs, and libraryinitiated connectivity initiatives. Community Access Points (CAPS) may be necessary to reach national goals for universal quality Internet access. (Author/AEF)
