The Internet has rapidly become one of the most powerful global sources of a wide range of information presenting many possibilities for librarians and information providers to seek information relating to their day‐to‐day activities, from buying books and serials to teaching information literacy skills. This paper delineates how libraries can benefit from the use of Internet resources to enhance the quality of their various services, at the same time saving both money and time. Some strategies for identifying valuable and relevant online resources are presented; and a number of most useful Internet tools and resources that are of great interest to librarians and information workers are discussed.
