Glossbrenner's latest revision contains everything personal computer users need to know about online access. He describes the fundamentals of information and communication and discusses essential technical data. The latest on information services, online utilities, electronic mail, and teleconferencing is presented. New topics covered include FAX, local area networks, cellular modems, and pocket radios. Useful applications and tips abound. This guide is broader in scope than Glossbrenner's How To Look It Up Online ( LJ 4/1/87), which focuses on accessing commercial databases. It is recommended for all libraries. Those serving Glossbrenner's enthusiastic following will want his other works as well, which include How To Buy Software ( LJ 3/1/84) and Alfred Glossbrenner's Master Guide to Free Software for IBMs and Compatible Computers ( LJ 11/1/88).
