Access hours concept

A pleasing letter in the latest issue (169) of the oft mentioned Computer Active talks about IT access via public libraries. It includes the statistic that 52,000,000 online hours are available to library service users.

I found this an interesting way of looking at things. Quick sums show that my library offers:
  • 15,000 online hours
  • 70,000 seated hours

A few hours of laptop use probably don't change the figures too much!

I wonder how many online hours and others we offer across all NHS Libraries?
