Abstract:The rudiments of a strategy for assessing the appropriateness of using an expert system in a given domain are presented. The assessment process involves comparing the characteristics of the domain with various suitability criteria and identifying potential benefits from an expert system in the domain. Two library technical service functions, descriptive cataloging and shelflisting, are used as models illustrating this assessment process. Based on organizational factors specific to the Library of Congress, series work (a subset of descriptive cataloging) and shelflisting appear to be suitable and beneficial candidates for expert system development efforts.
