Abstract
The informal networks that exists within a profession are sometimes refered to as the invisible college. Invisible colleges employ various media each of which has certain inherent limitations. The exceptions are electronic mail systems and bulletin boards which have made a whole new level of invisible college operations possible. Reports an exchange that took place on Public-Access Computer Systems-Libraries (PACS-L) and the Library Cataloguing and Authorities Discussion Group (AUTOCAT) in Mar-Apr 91. Describes the 'Dirty Database Test' which examines the extent to which misspellings erode the effectiveness of the online catalogue. Results indicate that quality control measures can be developed that are appropriate to individual libraries and available resources and that electronic mail can also be used to share, critcise and develop ideas and strategies more broadly and rapdly than ever before
