Title
Indexing for the online catalog

Abstract
The proliferation of online public access catalogs (OPACs) requires some systematic rationale for the comparative evaluation of their designs. Considered as an indexing application, the OPAC can be analyzed by three features: the variety of bibliographic data processed, the kinds of indexes constructed, and the ways in which the indexes are searched. No one configuration appiles to every library research project with equal efficacy or likelihood of satisfying queries. However, the rationale proposed can compare and evaluate alternative library computer catalogs in term of the library's understanding of the relationship between the library's collections and their use
