Building a Community Information Network: A Guidebook

The Guidebook provides an overview of all aspects of building a community information network -- issues from management to technical to funding. The Guidebook is provided in Microsoft Word 97 format and in Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format). Each item in the book -- front matter, chapters, and appendices -- is presented as a separate file for convenience. You may print part or all of the book as your needs dictate.

Note that many of these files are several megabytes in size due to embedded illustrations. They are most suited for download over a high-speed link or from CD-ROM. If you are downloading via a dial-up modem, be prepared to wait while each chapter downloads.

If you have trouble reading any of these files, save them to disk (right-click in Windows and long-click on the Macintosh) and open them with Word or Adobe Acrobat.
