What is Internet?
There are many ways to answer this question and how you choose to answer is really a matter of how you use it. To some people, it is a source of entertainment, to others it is a research tool, yet to some others, it is a gold mine of money-making opportunities. The most general answer, however, describes Internet as a 'network of networks'. In case, you do not know what a network is then this description would not help you much though we intend to elaborate on it in the later sections in a formal manner. The Internet, in a sense is anything you want it to be. If you use the Internet to get information about different systems of education or educational models in the world, that is what the Internet to you. Similarly, if you happen to be a legal expert researching all the decisions of the supreme Court of India, then, Internet is the services and resources available via Internet, the search engines and browsers, which support the users in finding their way around the Internet, and the resources like BUBL (the Bulletin Board for Libraries) and also other aspects relevant to Library and Information professionals.
