Moving toward more effective public Internet access : the 1998 national survey of public library outlet Internet connectivity by John Carlo Bertot( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication reports on research conducted to follow up on a 1997 survey of public libraries and the Internet, co-sponsored by the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science and the American Library Association. The 1998 survey is based on a sample of 2,500 of the nation's 15,718 public library outlets. The survey found that 73.3% of public library outlets now offer public access to the Internet. However, only 68.6% offer graphical public Internet access to the World Wide Web (www) and only 45.3% offer graphical public access to the www at speeds of 56 kbps or greater. The first section contains background information: the Telecommunications Act of 1996; public policy debate; information technology, Internet and the digital economy; and public libraries as a public point of Internet presence. The second section presents the results of the 1998 survey: availability of public Internet access; public Internet access for areas with varying levels of poverty; public Internet access for urban, suburban, and rural areas; graphical public Internet access; bandwidth as a component of public Internet access; defining effective public Internet access; key measures connectivity and public Internet access, 1996-1998; number of graphical workstations as a component of effective access; use of filtering software and availability of an acceptable use policy for public Internet access. The third section discusses findings, policy issues, and commission responses: supporting ongoing surveys on public libraries and the Internet; initiating a dialog on effective public Internet access; and identifying policy questions and promoting additional research. The last section is a bibliography of 8 statistical studies funded by the commission. Five appendices contain: summary results; the survey instrument; the survey methodology; the survey results; and the contractor's analysis of the survey results. Includes 56 tables of figures.(DLS)

Statistics and performance measures for public library networked services by John Carlo Bertot( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a book that will help you to measure and improve one of the library's most vital services - providing access to online and network-based resources. The first of its kind and written by a team of research experts, this how-to manual will guide you through the process of measuring and assessing the quality of service you are providing to a new breed of technology-savvy library users. Through practical examples and tested methods, Statistics and Performance Measures for Public Library Networked Services will show you to: establish a core set of performance measures - for your particular setting - that will capture and describe patron use of online resources; collect and organize hard statistics based on the measures you set; assess the services you are providing and identify potential areas of growth; understand how your library's services are being used by patrons; and develop a specific picture of your library's network service and usage that can be communicated to staff, community and new funding streams."--Jacket

Internet costs and cost models for public libraries : final report by Charles R McClure( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is the result of the statutory mandate by the National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (nclis) to promote activities to extend the nation's library and information handling capability as essential links in the emerging global information infrastructure. In a study to inventory the challenges related to libraries' roles in the National Information Infrastructure (nii), it was discovered that libraries had difficulty identifying and describing specific Internet costs. The cost elements, models, and worksheets presented here are intended to serve as useful guides for public libraries and communities in planning Internet connections and services. Five representative connectivity models and seven broad cost categories are identified for use by public libraries planning Internet connectivity and services. The value of this study rests more with the development of cost models, worksheets, and cost categories than with the costs represented in this report. However, the representative costs illustrate the significant variations that are possible in planning the networking permutations and configuration available to the public library community. For example, an initial one-time cost of $1,475 and a recurring annual cost of $12,635, a public library can establish a minimal level of single-workstation, text-based Internet connection. A more sophisticated representative multimedia connectivity model is described involving multiple workstations at multiple locations for a one-time cost of $266,375 and a recurring annual cost of $154,220, indicating the wide variation in cost and connectivity possibilities. The findings are intended to provide a basis for extending the benefits of advanced information services to the nation through its 9,050 public libraries. Models are illustrated through 14 figures. Two appendices provide research methodology and glossary of Internet terms. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/MAS)

Policy issues & strategies affecting public libraries in the national networked environment : moving beyond connectivity by John Carlo Bertot( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses selected issues regarding public library Internet connectivity, costs, and use. It discusses the implications of the "1997 Public Libraries and the Internet" study and presents policy recommendations related to the study's findings. This report suggests the importance of federal policy and library management in considering issues beyond simply connecting to the Internet. Questions about the unequal distribution of Internet connectivity, costs and provision of service across library population of legal service areas are raised. The 1997 Study used sample data from "Public Libraries in the United States: 1994," an annual public library data collection collaboration between the National Center for Education Statistics (nces), National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (nclis), and state library agencies. The report examines 10 Federal Information Policies: "Reaching 100% Public Library Connectivity"; "Importance of Internet-Based Services Rather than Connectivity"; "Universal Service"; "Subsidizing Public Library Connection Costs"; "Public Access to Electronic Government Information"; "Effectiveness of the Library Services and Technology Act for Public Libraries"; "Complexity of Internet-Related Costs"; "Need for a New National Data Collection Paradigm"; "Role of the Federal Government"; and "Multiple Federal Public Library Policies and Programs". In addition, nine Public Library Policy Issues are discussed: "Thinking Locally in a Global Networked Environment"; "The Endless Upgrade"; "Focus on Network-Based Services";"Identifying, Describing, and Defining Internet-Related Costs"; "Redeploying Library Resources"; "Comprehensive Internet Costs and Statistics Management"; "Performance Measures and Statistics for Networked Services"; "Resource Sharing"; and "New Models for Learning and Applying Internet Skills." (Contains 37 references.) (Jak)

Public libraries and the Internet : roles, perspectives, and implications by Charles R McClure( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Public Libraries and the Internet: Roles, Perspectives, and Implications explores the impact of the Internet and the expansion of the networked environment on U.S. public libraries through more than a dozen essays written by leading scholars and administrators. Notwithstanding the far-reaching changes wrought by the Internet, this is the first attempt to provide a comprehensive exploration of the subject over time and across areas of practice. This wide-ranging volume, edited by the authors of several national studies tracking the use and involvement of public libraries with the Internet since 1994, offers both description and assessment. It discusses the ways in which the roles and services of public libraries have changed as a result of the Internet and offers a perspective on the meaning and impact of these changes. Perhaps most critically, it also suggests possible futures and opportunities as public libraries continue to evolve in this networked environment"--Page 4 of cover
