Abstract
Reports the results of a questionnaire survey conducted in Autumn 1996 which sought to establish the situation regarding Internet provision in Scottish public libraries, and identify key issues likely to affect the further development of such provision. Librarians were asked what they perceived to be the main benefits (if any) from providing Internet access, and how they envisaged future trends. Examines reasons why Internet access should be considered an important aspect of public library provision. Of 25 responding libraries, 14 were currently making use of the Internet, and 11 others envisaged connection within 1-3 years. However, the overall picture is of a relatively small number of libraries which are extremely active, with the majority only having a very basic level of activity. Reference work was by far the most common Internet application, but there was also significant use for educational purposes. Othe applications noted were communications, community information and publicity, and recreation
