The introduction of public Internet access has raised a host of policy questions for librarians, such as: where should terminals be located?; how can users be trained?; and how can copyright violations, sexual harassment and other inappropriate uses be prevented? Beginning with an overview of the policy development and implementation process, this handbook identifies policy options - and the pros and cons of each option - for a wide range of issues. Individual sections then deal with physical considerations, access issues, acceptable use policies, filters and training. Additional material on measuring use, handling challenges to library policies and procedures, and a compendium of representative library policies should make this book a useful reference for any library offering Internet access.
