Title
OPACs in twelve Canadian academic libraries : an evaluation of functional capabilities and interface features
Source
Information technology and libraries. 13(1994) no.3, S.174-195
Year
1994
Abstract
Reports results of a study to evaluate the OPACs in 12 Canadian academic libraries, using a checklist of functional capabilities and interface features of an ideal OPAC system, to serve as an evaluation standard or benchmark for evaluating the strenghts and weaknesses of the OPACs. Findings suggest that, among the 10 areas evaluated, screen displays is the best developed area, and subject search aids is the weakest. Identifies possible directions for the future development of OPACs and suggests areas for future OPAC research
