Abstract
Considers the current state of online catalogues and future directions in designing the next generation, addressing both the content and presentation of information in the catalogue. Reports on a user survey which identified the varieties of catalogue failure and users' recommendations for improvements. Suggests pragmatic solutions to problems posed by large retrieval sets and the tendencies of searchers of sophisticated systems to use only a few commands and to examine only the first few records in a large retrieval set. The chaotic and contradictory nature of the OPAC in a networked environment is characterized as 'a great disorder in an order'. Discusses paradoxes that confront both users and designers of future online catalogues
