The report analyses responses from public libraries in all states and territories across Australia. Over 200 public libraries responded to the survey. The library services which participated in the survey represent 6,920,476 registered users and have over 147,000 people accessing internet services in their libraries each week.

This report is a follow-up to similar survey reports in 2002 and 2005 and a more specialised report on internet filtering in 2007. This report provides current information on how public library internet services are managed, delivered and used in responding libraries.

This report of internet services in public libraries in Australia is made possible by the voluntary participation of a significant number of public libraries across Australia.
