Summarizes results of a survey of 1.495 libraries carried out by the National Commission on Libraries and Information SCience (NCLIS) which sought to provide benchmark data for public library use of the Internet. Covers: connections to the Internet, type of connection and network provider, average cost of connection and future resource allocation, uses of the Internet, Internet-based user services, public access terminals, provision of hard-copy materials, community information services, computers and phone lines, factors affecting involvement with the Internet, primrary motivation for interest in the Internet, roles perceived as appropriate for public libraries and federal government. The study includes recommendations for policy makers, public libraries and the NCLIS
