Book News
Information scholars McClure (Florida State U.) and Jaeger (U. of Maryland) distill into a slender volume what they have learned over many years about the relationships, questions, benefits, and challenges created by the intersection of public libraries and the Internet. Writing for both professionals and students, they consider issues that affect policy and design, rather than daily practice in libraries. Among them are Internet access in social roles of public libraries, implications of Internet-enabled roles, and challenges from professional resistance and public policy.
