Providing connectivity to public libraries has been a State Library of New South Wales priority since 1997. Without content and the skills for effective use of this content, connectivity is of little value. This paper explores initiatives to enhance the use of online content. Building skills and confidence in staff and clients are important elements in maximising the benefits of enhanced connectivity.
