Title:Linking the unlinkable
Author(s):Gorman, Michael
Subject(s):Libraries --Automation
Library catalogs and users
Library catalog
Abstract:Keynote speech at the 1986 What is user friendly? : Clinic on Library Applications of Data Processing. The focus of the talk is the idea of using microcomputers as the central component of a third way of achieving and extending developed online catalogs. The term online catalog is now simply a term of convenience and one which is now so inaccurate as to be seriously misleading. The idea has never been that we should simply automate the pre-machine catalog (though, to tell the truth, some have tried to do just that), but that we should produce an online system which has at least three important differences from the pre-machine catalog.
