> Millions of Americans--35 percent of adults--live without broadband access at home. Perhaps more surprising, as of late 2009, 22 percent of adults still did not use the Internet at all. New government initiatives and services mean that Internet access and understanding is no longer an optional skill. How can libraries help close the gap? > Teaching novice computer users, including seniors and individuals with disabilities, how to do what they want and need to do online is a formidable challenge for library staff. Part inspirational, part practical, *Without a Net: Librarians Bridging the Digital Divide* is a summary of techniques, approaches, and skills that will help librarians meet this challenge.
