Title
Enhancing access to information : building catalogs for the future

Abstract
The catalogue as we know it today is the result of a long process of evolution, which began over 250 years ago. At that time, the catalogue served as an index to all materials within a library's collections. However, the tremendous growth in the amount of information produced and the proliferation of formats for that information have forced the catalogue to compromise its indexing function for virtually all formats except monographs. This trend has resulted in a de-emphasis of the catalogue as a tool for retrieving information. Fortunately, the technology of the online catalogue makes possible the reintegration of other information sources into the catalogue. Discusses the decline of the catalogue and proposes some areas in which it may be improved for the next century.
