This paper examines problems that faculty members experience in their adoption and use of Internet technologies in teaching, communication, and research. It was found that the most common barriers are related to Internet connectivity, intellectual property issues, and concerns with the loss of privacy. The findings indicate no significant differences associated with faculty members’ gender, academic discipline, teaching experience, and age. However, significant correlations were found with faculty members’ academic rank and years of Internet experience.
