Title
Pathfinders on-line : adding pathfinders to a NOTIS on-line system
Source

Abstract
For decades print pathfinders have complemented card catalogues and been useful reference tools. They are overlooked as components of online catalogues, even though they can extend the depth of the catalogue. To encourage librarians to consider integrating pathfinders into online catalogues discusses problems in OPAC searching, describes the value and styles of pathfinders, and illustrates how to include them in a NOTIS system
