Libraries and the Internet: Global Case Studies

For Author Guidelines see:

The IFLA Internet Discussion Group (IIDG) seeks papers on the
use of the Internet by libraries and librarians around the world.
These papers will be published by IFLA in its series of monographs

of Munich, Germany.

The monograph, entitled "Libraries and the Internet: Global Case Studies,"
will be edited by Nancy R. John of the University of Illinois at Chicago

to the monograph will be refereed by members of the IFLA Internet Discussion

Papers in the monograph could examine:

- Internet-based catalogues
- document delivery and the Internet
- training for staff and patrons
- filtering software and libraries
- electronic journals: acquisition, circulation, archiving

Contributions to this monograph will identify a specific use of the
Internet addressing a given library problem, discuss the opportunities
that the Internet provides to both library personnel and patrons, and
discuss the effectiveness and impact of a given Internet-based solution.

This monograph will attempt to illustrate the uses of the Internet in
around the world. We welcome your participation in illustrating the
diversity of
library applications of the Internet.
