Abstract
Suggests a redesign of known-item, personal-name OPACs; corporate authorship and subject sections of OPACs are not included. Corporate authorship is disregarded because corporate author searches of OPACs comprise less than 2% of the total. Subject searching is not included because no new and effective topical catalogue is available. The redesign is user orientated. Objectives to achieve the goals of redesigned catalogs are delineated. Displays of the miniature catalogues (minicats) produces by OPACs are limited to a single screen and computerized techniques for achieving this one-screen objective are described. Findings of research simulating faculty and general use of a university OPAC is used in the new design. Novel error correction techniques are also described. Finally, benefits to users and libraries are presented in terms of effectiveness, productivity and savings in time and money
