Abstract
Effective OCLC catalogue searching is important for libraries that face budget constraints at a time of cost increases for the searching of OCLC database. Describes a study to determine the most effective way to search OCLC, comparing traditional and new searches made available when PRISM was implemented by OCLC, when both time accuracy are factors. The best overall search strategy was found to be the traditional name and title (4,4) search. The new scan title search was found to be the most effective search when time is not a factor or when there are possible variations in the title entry of the item
