Title:A quantitative study of catalog use
Author(s):Lipetz, Ben-Ami
Subject(s):Library catalogs and users
Abstract:Among people who are concerned with the management of libraries, it is now almost universally accepted that the traditional manual card catalog must sooner or later be replaced by an on-line computerized catalog of some sort. This is accepted almost as an article of faith; there is almost never any questioning or disputing of its inevitability. I have no intention of questioning or disputing its inevitability in this paper; but there are questions regarding the computerizing of library catalogs which ought to, and indeed do, trouble conscientious library managers. These are the crucial questions of how to computerize and when to computerize. The work I will report on was prompted mainly by concern with these questions.
