Abstract

Public libraries must embrace the new electronic network technologies as they strive to meet the needs of their communities. As the borders of cities, states, and nations blur as a result of electronic information networks and global communication, and as access to information becomes seamless, the public library must firmly claim its place as a major provider and access point in the realm of electronic networking.
