The emergence of digital libraries in the early 1990s was a critical turning point in the shift to networked information.

Online catalogs : what users and librarians want : an OCLC report ( Book )
13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
Librarians and library staff, like end users, approach catalogs and catalog data purposefully. End users generally want to find and obtain needed information; librarians and library staff generally have work responsibilities to carry out. The work roles of librarians and staff influence their data quality preferences. Librarians' choice of data quality enhancements reflects their understanding of the importance of accurate, structured data in the catalog. The findings suggest two traditions of information organization at work-one from librarianship and the other from the Web. Librarians' perspectives about data quality remain highly influenced by their profession's classical principles of information organization, while end users' expectations of data quality arise largely from their experiences of how information is organized on popular Web sites. What is needed now is to integrate the best of both worlds in new, expanded definitions of what "quality" means in library online catalogs. The report concludes with recommendations for a data quality program that balances what end users and librarians want and need from online catalogs, plus a few suggestions for further research
