Title
OPACs at five Ontario universities : a profile of users and user satisfaction
Source
Canadian library journal. 49(1992) no.2, S.123-133
Year

Abstract
In a 1990 study of 5 different online public access catalogue (OPAC) systems at 5 Ontario university libraries, 2916 undergraduates, graduates and faculty were interviewed to determine their satisfaction with the computerised catalogue. Presents the results for the entire sample as well as the findings for each OPAC/site. Sets out 6 major findings and makes several recommendations for future research involving OPACs
