Discusses a survey aimed at identifying the extent and quality of web publishing by secondary school libraries in England. Only 111 of 1,303 sites contained library web pages with independent and dynamic content. There were only 22 of good quality content and form. In only a minority of cases had librarians been involved in creating the pages; several seemed to be the result of pupil projects. Only 33 of the sample provided hyperlinks to external resources. Discusses the potential for school librarians to encourage effective use of Internet resources and support students in using media via school library Web pages. Identifies needs for improved recognition of the role of librarians in encouraging the use of Information and Communications Technology in learning, and increased sharing of experience between the educational and public library sectors.
