Directory of Internet Access Policies of Canadian Libraries in the Public Sector

The increasing use of the Internet by Canadian library users has been accompanied by the development and adoption of policies and procedures to control and monitor access.

This Web site identifies Web-accessible Internet access policies that have been adopted by Canadian librarians in the public, school, and post-secondary library sectors.

It is hoped that the directory will reduce the time and effort needed to find comparable resources and models for local policy development and critical evaluation. For further information on the development of this site, see Project Background.

The site is organized into the following categories:

Post-Secondary Libraries

Public Libraries

School Libraries

Canadian Resources
