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)

The 1996 national survey of public libraries and the Internet : progress and issues : final report, July 1996 by John Carlo Bertot( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1996 National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (nclis) survey gathered data from a national sample of public libraries concerning the current level of public library involvement with the Internet. The purpose of this study was to: (1) provide policymakers, researchers, and library professionals with longitudinal data that measured changes in public library Internet involvement since the first survey in 1994; (2) identify costs for public library Internet services; and (3) identify issues and inform the policy debate concerning public library roles in the electronic networked environment. This final report is divided into three sections: Introduction; Study Results; and Progress and Issues. The introduction discusses the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and the Library Services and Construction Act/Library Services and Technology Act; intellectual property and the National Information Infrastructure; and an electronic federal depository library program. The second section discusses study methodology; public library demographics; accessing the Internet; the current state of public library Internet connectivity; Internet uses and public access services; and benefits to connecting to the Internet. The third section focuses on disparities; connectivity versus services; the goal of universal service; quality of network services; the life cycle of public library Internet development; and preparation for the next survey. Appendices include the survey instrument, survey alert, and cover letter, and information about the authors. (Contains 27 references, and 45 figures that present survey data.) (Author/AEF)
Report on the assessment of electronic government information products( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) has served and continues to serve the American public by ensuring localized access to Federal Government information. The mission continues to be as important today to the fundamental success of our democracy as it was when the FDLP was created. The FDLP's original mandate, to assist Americans regardless of economic, education, or geographic considerations, is one that must not be lost as we strategically and thoughtfully use the tools of the electronic age to enhance that mandate. The purpose of this study was to assess electronic medium and format standards for the creation and dissemination of electronic information products. The Superintendent of Documents will use the study to continue to plan and implement the transition to a more electronic FDLP

Toward a national program for library and information services : goals for action by United States( Book )

13 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (nclis) presents its goals and plans for a national program of library and information services with the intention of satisfying the nation's information needs to the greatest extent possible. The basic needs and rationale for a national program are stated, and a survey is made of the present situation of public, special, school, university, research, academic, state, and federal libraries and information services. The concerns of publishers and providers of information services in the private sector, as well as copyright problems, are reviewed, Existing network and cooperative efforts are examined along with some impediments to further cooperation. The nclis recommendations for a national program encompass: objectives; relationships and responsibilities of states, the private sector, and the Library of Congress; proposed legislation; funding; and the nationwide network concept. Major federal responsibilities involved in a nationwide network are delineated in the areas of standards, resource collections, centralized services, exploration of computer use, new forms of telecommunications, research and development support, and cooperation with other nations and with international organizations. Appendixes contain enabling legislation and lists of nclis members and staff. (Ls)
Internet costs and cost models for public libraries : final report by Charles R McClure( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 426 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)

Government publications, their role in the national program for library and information services by Bernard M Fry( Book )

10 editions published between 1970 and 1979 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper briefly reviews the current status of government publications, including the local, state, and Federal levels, with particular attention to crucial problems of availability and accessibility to the public. It examines issues and proposed changes in government policy with respect to government documents, E.G., (1) Is there a need for a national center for government documents? (2) What should be the relationship of the Government Printing Office to the national program? (3) How should state and local documents be made available nationally? (4) What role should private enterprise play in publishing government information and in assuring its accessibility? (5) How can government publications make a full contribution to the mainstream of useful and used information? Implications for change are highlighted and a proposed alternative structure for the Federal Depository Library Program is appended. (Author)

National information policy : report to the President of the United States by Domestic Council (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report discusses the need for a national information policy. This need has been generated by advances in computer and communications technology, by shifts in the United States economy from a manufacturing to an information base, and by citizen demands for clarification of their rights to have and control information. Fifteen major policy issues are examined in five clusters: (1) collection, transfer and dissemination of government information; (2) information in commerce as a resource for public good and private gain; (3) the interaction between technology and government; (4) international implications of information policies and developments; and (5) preparing for the information age. How to structure a policymaking process with a unified approach is a critical problem in forming a comprehensive national information policy. This report recommends that the first step toward structuring such a process should be the establishment of a policy oriented organization within the Executive Office of the President, together with the creation of appropriate intergovernmental committees and non-Federal advisory bodies. A bibliography of 187 entries is included. (Author/SC)
