Title: Special librarians and the Internet: A descriptive study
Author(s): Tillman, Hope N.; Ladner, Sharyn J.
Subject(s): Special libraries Internet
Abstract: This paper is an analysis of the data we collected on special librarians in 1991 and 1992 to determine if special librarians working in colleges and universities differ from special librarians in corporations, not-for-profit organizations, and government agencies. In this paper, we will focus on comparing the academic and nonacademic use of the Internet and training issues. Specifically, we will describe: how special librarians learn about the Internet; how special librarians access and pay for the Internet; how special librarians are trained, gain employer support, and provide training; how special librarians use the Internet; and how training needs are expressed by special librarians.
