Abstract
Reports on a US teleconference entitled 'National Issues, Local Decisions: Libraries, the Internet, and the First Amendment' held on 17 Oct 1997. The context for the debate was the First Amendment in the US Bill of Rights, which ensures that the federal government will not create or maintain an orthodoxy of thought or belief. Issues discussed included: whethger public libraries should restrict Internet access or allow free access to all; factors which differentiate the Internet as a resource such as its visual nature, the lack of mediation and its international nature; legal implications or restricting access; and software tools that can be used to control children's access to the Web. Libraries should support community debate on this issue and take a leadership role in educating their communities on issues surrounding the use of technology in libraries
