Bishop, Ann P.; Tidline, Tonyia J.; Shoemaker, Susan; Salela, Pamela
Library & Information Science Research, v21 n3 p36190 1999
Presents findings from an empirical study of community information exchange, computer access and use among lowincome, predominantly AfricanAmerican residents in one locale. Results indicate that, while computer use is minimal, many lowincome community members are poised to participate in the local development of networked information services. Roles for public libraries in communitywide efforts to bridge the digital divide are emphasized. (Contains 54 references.)(Author/AEF)
