Title
¬The incredible expanding OPAC
Source
Library journal. 119(1994) no.21, S.69
Year
1994
Abstract
Presents a critical view of OPACs to library collections, arguing against the indiscriminate loading of bibliographic records which do not accurately reflect the libraries' collections. Claims that many OPAC 'enhancements' are anything but, and lead to additional complexity, and the virtual abandonment by librarians of responsibility for search outcomes
