M. Roknuzzaman, University of Rajshahi, Bangladesh


Abstract
The article describes the current state of Internet access and its usage in Rajshahi University, the second largest pubic university in Bangladesh. The study used a questionnaire-based survey method to investigate the infrastructural facilities for Internet access and to know the patterns of Internet use in all the 47 departments of 7 faculties, 5 institutes, computer centre, central library and administrative building of the university. Although the university community is deriving some benefits from internet access, the study revealed that nearly half of the responsible authorities of the various sectors are not satisfied with the existing facilities owing to several constraints. On the basis of the prevailing situation, this article suggests future directions for better Internet access in the common interest of the university community.
